RIP Sean Connery

2020 just couldn’t take a break could it, can’t let us enjoy a limited Halloween and have a little pause before the shitstorm election. I know Sean was 90ish yet I didn’t know he had been ill recently. I’m glad … Continue reading

RIP Diana Rigg

Diana was one of my first boyhood crushes thanks to The Avengers reruns on CBS late night (long before they tried to compete with Johnny Carson). It was exciting and bewildering at the same time to see a lady kicking ass … Continue reading

RIP Buck Henry

A tremendous loss to the world of Comedy, especially in how much Buck influenced what followed, namely the great sketch shows I grew to love: The Kids in the Hall, Strangers with Candy and SCTV. Sadly, most obits will go on about he … Continue reading

Kingsman: The Golden Circle: Worth Seeing

The surprise hit from a couple years ago returns and the people running things did it well. Circle is a sequel that dodged the pitfalls many run into: More and more characters on top of who was in the original. Another crisis … Continue reading

RIP Martin Laundu

Martin gets a nod in the annals of Science Fiction primarily for Space: 1999 a show which could use a reboot/remake since it does have an interesting premise. Maybe he did it after seeing the popularity Leonard Nimoy got for Spock, … Continue reading

RIP Roger Moore

For me, he was James Bond whenever these movies came out. Roger wasn’t my favorite but he did star in several of the best movies in the franchise: Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun, The Spy Who … Continue reading

Spectre: Must See*

Daniel Craig gets to finish out on a high note unlike three previous Bonds with Spectre, trust me, Day Another Day and A View to a Kill…PU! License Revoked was just mediocre because the franchise was struggling on numerous levels. Now when I first heard … Continue reading

RIP Patrick Macnee, aka Steed

I put up a picture of his most iconic role because most people didn’t recognize his name. For those not into the nerdy genres, he was also Sir Denis Eton-Hogg in This is Spinal Tap, the English owner of Polydor Records, the band’s … Continue reading

Kingsman: Worth Seeing

An odd risk taken by Hollywood because R-rated movies tend to fail financially but I guess the bean counters took a chance due to this being handled by the guy behind Kick Ass, Layer Cake and some other hyper-violent flicks. I liked it since … Continue reading

This month’s header is a tribute to Leonard Nimoy

I decided to go with a header like I’ve done for Superman, Batman, 1989 and William Shatner. Not necessarily as a tribute to his passing but March 26 would’ve been his 84th birthday. It’s nice to see all the outpouring … Continue reading
