The Exchange

Prez Grampa’ Brunch may have declared the Pandemic over and told us to just live with it, once again proving the Leftists’ point in how there is NO MEANINGFUL DIFFERENCE between the modern Democrats (really the NeoLiberal Party) and psycho … Continue reading

1982: Square Pegs debuts

On this night forty years ago, the vanguard of Generation X yelled a collective “FINALLY!” when this show hit the airwaves. Below is the reason why it is this month’s Header Art too. Oddly Square Pegs was on by CBS, the … Continue reading

Permanent

This really cute Coming-of-Age movie set in the Eighties helped solidify how much I enjoy seeing Rainn Wilson in about anything. Before you ask, I’ve barely watched the American version of The Office. I have no opinion of it, thus, I … Continue reading

Seeing Red: Must See

Rather bummed that Disney didn’t have the confidence to release this semi-original idea in theaters exclusively as they do with the MCU stuff. It was stronger than Luca (the Little Italian Mermaid) and about on par with Inside/Out or Soul, the last two near-perfect movies … Continue reading

Luca: Streaming at best

Maybe Pixar is stuck in a pattern of great movie followed by mediocre movie, repeat. Currently, it would go: Coco, Incredibles 2, Toy Story 4, Onward, Soul and Luca. If I chose to go back farther, my hypothesis would have more interruptions of … Continue reading

Good Boys

Hollywood dips into the Superbad/Booksmart well one more time with Tweeners and the results are predictable. All the best jokes were wasted in the trailer. Did I mention these are the morons who gave us the unfunny Sausage Party? Well, I … Continue reading

Sierra Burgess is a Loser

John Hughes would’ve been proud of this high school take on Cyrano de Bergerac and I loved it because Sierra killed off a couple common tropes in its storytelling. I’m also stoked to see Stranger Things‘ breakout actress Shannon Purser getting a … Continue reading

Bad Company

Besides being the first movie to use the title Bad Company (the name reappeared in 1995 and 2002, both as modern Action flicks), we can also blame the 1972 period piece for giving the AOR band its name; Paul Rodgers loved … Continue reading

1999: Mission Hill debuted today on the (now CW) WB network

A big thank you to Bill Oakley’s Twitter feed to remind us all on this momentous date in adult-orient animation history (and progress!). There’s a fantastic, long piece regarding Mission Hill on Polygon from 2017 here. It goes into the level … Continue reading

Booksmart: Worth seeing, actually funny

Two quick things about Booksmart, put aside the nonsense plug saying from the people behind the unfunny movies Superbad  or Sausage Party, this is actually good, clever and humorous. The other was how Olivia Wilde is a better director than actress. Admittedly, the … Continue reading

Firstborn: 35 years later, still great

Darned Hulu, finding favorite movies of mine with a looming deadline! I’ve also come to suspect that if the movie is getting yanked from the service in a few days, they’ve reduced its bandwidth or something. Every time, be it 1984 or … Continue reading

Slut in a Good Way: Worth Seeing

The message of this Quebecois comedy is the double standard between the sexes. Namely how women get labelled sluts and men are congratulated for the exact same behavior. Let me rewind to the movie. Charlotte is a teenage girl enamored … Continue reading

The Big Mouth Club

I think the artist who did this shirt is one of those people that focuses on a couple themes and then does them to death. However, this mashup of the Big Mouth crowd with The Breakfast Club is rather fitting. Although Nick, … Continue reading

New shirt from WizWorld #4: The Hormone Monster!

Big Mouth‘s imaginary advisor to Nick and Andrew is one of the funniest thing Nick Kroll has actually done, I often find his other stuff a bit weak. Either way, it’s great to have this character which is part satyr … Continue reading
