Movies in Theaters and on our TV

RIP: Clarence Williams III & Ned Beatty

These gentlemen were staples on both screens in the Seventies. Clarence got his start in the Sixties with the groundbreaking cop show The Mod Squad on ABC. Three undercover officers who were young enough looking to infiltrate evil gangs of Hippies … Continue reading

Harold and Kumar go to White Castle 2021 edition

So pissed I couldn’t find my original review of this flick from 2004 (pre-Weblog format) because I did spend the money at the terrible Cinemark outside my house. Hell, I cannot remember if I liked, hated or thought meh of this. … Continue reading

RIP Paul Mooney

It has been a rough week in comedy since we lost the other master of the deadpan delivery and a pioneer in Comedy for the world, not just Black Americans. Paul was at Cap City a few years ago during … Continue reading

RIP Charles Grodin

Mr. Grodin definitely had a great run and when I became a young adult, I got a better grip on his humor. Before then, I thought he was just a grump on David Letterman plus The Lonely Guy was a boring flick. … Continue reading

Justice League: the Snyder do-over

Allegedly, this Snyder Cut happened via HBO Max through the fans. Who these people are, I have yet to meet one. I do readily admit to enjoying Snyder’s 300 and he did the best job possible with The Watchmen, a story that … Continue reading

RIP Felix Silla

One would rarely recognize the actor in public, but we all know the characters he played the years thanks to his diminutive height. In the Sixties, he was Cousin Itt on The Addams Family and the child ape who spotted Taylor … Continue reading

So far the Snyder Cut is rather weird

Jennifer split for Padre to have a long weekend with her mom, daughter and friend so I decided to use the time to finally watch the long awaited Snyder Cut of the terrible Justice League. Hmm. I wasn’t expecting this cameo … Continue reading

RIP James Hampton

James was a Brian Dennehy character actor. You recognize his face. You remember him being in a couple movies and/or TV shows yet you can’t name the poor guy. And maybe that was just fine with James because he had … Continue reading

Save Yourselves!

This indie comedy was one of the Pandemic’s many victims which is a bummer. Alamo Drafthouse would’ve treated Save Yourselves! really well, especially with the pre-show snipe, alien-invasion stories go back to HG Wells. I’m grateful Hulu got the streaming rights … Continue reading

RIP Jessica Walter

So sad to see Jessica go. Although many remember her best as the mean-ass matriarch from Arrested Development, she will always be the crazy, racist head of ISIS (Archer) and decades earlier, the obsessed fan in Play Misty for Me. Good thing she … Continue reading

What I plan to watch this weekend on HBO Max…

But seriously, I’m not a fan of Zack Snyder’s superhero work or his lame-ass Dawn of the Dead remake. I did watch 300 in the last year or so, it held up. Falcon and the Winter Soldier and For All Mankind are bigger … Continue reading

Virtual SXSW underway

Last year it was cancelled (hooray!). This year they found a way to rip people off by making them pay probably outrageous amounts to “attend” via streaming and/or disappointing Zoom conferences. There’s a sucker born every minute, especially into believing … Continue reading

RIP Yaphet Kotto

Another actor I thought was already passed away, whoops! Still, I’m saddened to see him depart because he was pretty cool. For me he was a great villain (Mr. Big) in Roger Moore’s debut as James Bond in Live and Let … Continue reading

Alamo Drafthouse files for Chapter 11, loses the Ritz

Yesterday, the day after our asshole governor decided to create more super spreader events (upcoming Spring Breaks filled with dill holes), my favorite movie theater chain has declared bankruptcy. To add insult to injury, they shuttered their premiere location in … Continue reading

Wonder Woman 1984: needs more development/editing

It’s a good thing AT&T prepared for a beating by going with this sequel via streaming because 84 was another mediocre DC movie. What a pisser, I really liked the first one plus I was looking forward to the next chapter … Continue reading

A most righteous and awesome jersey

Geeky Jerseys gave me second chance to get my customized version of this very Eighties and spectacular design thanks to the third movie debuting late last year. The design fits the former description because the colors utilized were pretty common … Continue reading
