Thor & Loki: The Buddy Film We All Need

Hello, gentle readers. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve done an update, as life has been terribly helter skelter, but I wanted you to know I’m back, and, I’ve just seen the lasts MCU installment: “Thor: Ragnarok.” Initially, I had my reservations about this next installment of solo Thor films, as I wasn’t thrilled […]

Wonder Woman: A Leap in the Right Direction

While I thoroughly enjoyed this film, I do think it had some hiccups.  While I think it’s having a Marvel-type effect on audiences [but finally for a DC film], meaning, people loving it for it finally being here, I do not feel as if the love is unwarranted.  I’m thrilled it’s getting accolades, but I […]

15 Christmas Films For Geeks

The holidays are here, and there’s no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than watching a holiday film or two.  We all know the usual suspects — It’s a Wonderful Life, A Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story Home Alone — but here’s an alternate list [in no particular order]: Die Hard First let […]

“Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” Movie Review

I don’t know why this particular review manifested itself in the manner in which I am sharing it, but I suppose one can take a guess.  There are no spoilers in the images below.  However, there is a hint at one in the last image.  Additionally, what is not mentioned in the review is that […]

KRAMPUS Movie Review

Drop Dead Fred.  Coneheads.  She-Devil.  The Cable Guy.  Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead.  The Mask.  Death Becomes Her. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.  Groundhog Day. While a small sample, I think the films listed are a bit indicative of the zany, comedic films that were available in the late eighties to mid nineties.  A few […]

“The Revenant” Movie Review

Yesterday, I was able to see a pre-screening of the film “The Revenant,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhall Gleeson, and Will Poulter. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this.  If you told me, “Hey–want to see a film where DiCaprio doesn’t speak much, is mostly alone, and spends a good deal crawling […]

“TRUMBO” Movie Review

Every once in awhile, I’ll see a film or read a story or book that touches me in a special way and provides motivation to be better.  “Trumbo” is this year’s inspiration. I didn’t know much, well, anything about Dalton Trumbo.  In fact, with a career that spanned nearly half a century (with some work […]
