The Post-Retirement roleplaying game

Given that this is a game for the elderly, it still uses the First Edition rules because every class having skills and feats is too new-fangled. It also comes with a starter adventure which the characters must go on a … Continue reading

A Quiet Place

A Horror movie with a new twist I was willing to investigate. Quiet receiving a sequel wasn’t a surprise though, about half of all new Horror franchises do well enough to get another: Happy Death Day, SAW, Candyman, etc. I think Quiet earned … Continue reading

Terminator: Salvation

Why‽ Why‽ WHY‽ Why do they keep making sequels to the well-loved Terminator film from 1984‽ I haven’t seen one worth a crap, the short-lived TV show included and my complaint includes Judgment Day but Salvation really shits the bed. There’s a horrible, … Continue reading

Spirit of 1984 should be the title

Pretty bitchin’ homemade shirt someone had at Pinballz. A Terminator T-something, the kind without the human covering riding a luck dragon from The Neverending Story for those who don’t recognize the white creature. The wearer’s husband has good Photoshop skills so … Continue reading

Children of Men: a cautionary tale we’re ignoring

Richard Jeni would’ve been proud

The late comedian in the title used to a routine about a bachelor chef cooking show featuring macaroni and cheese, a staple for unmarried men. One joke was how cheap and mandatory the foodstuff was because the character purchased this … Continue reading

War For The Planet Of The Apes: Worth Seeing

Thus concludes the new take on how The Planet of the Apes came to be since the current team wraps it up with War. As charming as Escape, Conquest and Battle were, Rise, Dawn and War have been more satisfying along with being more likely explanations for the world turned … Continue reading

Mad Max: Fury Road Must See

It’s great to see this Eighties franchise return and with a vengeance. I’ve always loved Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and Mad Max slow patches and all. Mad Max 3: Beyond Thunderdome has never held up, it was a terrible preview … Continue reading

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Worth Seeing

I’m wondering if every horrendous Tim Burton reboot will eventually get another attempt and result in a good franchise like Apes. Probably not since all the others had little to go on beyond their original flicks. Anyway, the same team behind the … Continue reading
