The Weirdest S- I’ve Ever Seen: Transformers: The Movie

In the 80’s movies for children were either inane or psychotic.  Those that fell in between these two categories were easily forgotten.   For a person who is obsessed with bizarre and inexplicably macabre films, the 80’s offered a wealth of bafflingly grim kids movies.  At the time Transformers: The Continue Reading

X-Hausted #3: Alpha Flight

Alpha Flight The Team NOBODY Wanted.. From the Land of Mild Disappointments, the land better know as Canada, comes a team that Marvel has been trying to kill since the mid 80’s.  Alpha Flight exists as a strange mix of being an X-Men derivative and Avengers clone.  It had interesting characters, Continue Reading

Random Thoughts about Batman vs Superman

So… Instead of a traditional movie review.  I will just list the assorted thoughts I had while watching Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (this is seriously one of the dumbest names I’ve ever heard).  These aren’t exactly in order. Bruce’s parents die in this too?  Did his Mom gets Continue Reading

The Weirdest Sh*t I’ve Ever Seen: The Dark Knight Rises

Time for an unpopular opinion… I loved Tom Hardy’s representation of Bane.  I liked the voice.  I liked his costume.  I liked his character.  Bane was the high part of the movie for me.  He was consistently the most interesting character in the movie. Bane also felt more real than Continue Reading

Rage of the Fanboys: HYPE

What’s the difference between excitement and hype? My definition is of excitement is: natural anticipation or enthusiasm that is levered to reality.   Hype on the other hand is an artificially high state of excitement that loses all sense of perspective or history. I saw Deadpool last week.  I really Continue Reading

The (White) Gods of Egypt

The Gods of Egypt. Fam.  I hate this movie.   I haven’t even seen it and I hate it so much.   I hate the trailer.  I hate the concept.  I hate the title.  “Scholars” may (try) to debate the racial makeup of Ancient Egyptians but I know they damn Continue Reading

The Weirdest Sh*t I’ve Ever Seen: Matrix 2 & 3

Changing the game The Matrix destroyed action movies for me.  It was like nothing I’d ever seen in live action American cinema.  It positioned itself as something new AND it delivered without being obnoxious about how new it was.  The Matrix blended practical effects with CGI and found an eye Continue Reading
