Kong: Skull Island: Worth Seeing!

Running…again, and again, and again

The excuses finally ran out and I made it back to the gym today for running. I’m within 100 miles of the current target too. I could’ve gotten back into the groove if it weren’t daylight savings time getting in … Continue reading

RIP Chuck Barris

Fist Fight: Disappointment

The other half of our recent double feature was my choice after John Wick 2 and I didn’t fare any better in this rather by-the-numbers comedy playing up Charlie Day’s spastic character from Philly and the often grouchy Ice Cube. The difference? … Continue reading

John Wick 2: Stop Bothering!
