RIP Ed Asner

It was sad to hear about Ed’s passing while Kathy and I were in the middle of working on our podcasts. He was a helluva’ person! Not just a great heavy in movies/TV, but a person who put his money … Continue reading

RIP Richard Donner

What a great run Richard had! He started by directing TV shows: good stuff, namely  The Twilight Zone‘s “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” and dreck, Gilligan’s Island. Then he did several movies but the one that got him rolling was The Omen, don’t … 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

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

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

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

RIP Joel Schumacher

Joel was often mocked and reviled for what he did in Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, I recall there’s a joke in Robot Chicken in which a convention goer calls him History’s Greatest Monster. However, he did helm a few well-loved films before … Continue reading

DC Comics and Diamond part ways

Yesterday, DC announced that it will have all its comic books, novels, etc. distributed by two new companies this Summer. For over 25 years, Diamond Comic Distributors has been the sole solution if you buy your stuff from direct-sales stores … Continue reading

The other Dynamic Duo of the Seventies!

A whole new generation of kids was going to be introduced to Blue Falcon and Dynomutt next month via an upcoming Scooby Doo movie but the Pandemic killed its theatrical release; it will be out digitally though. For me, I … Continue reading

RIP Brian Dennehy

For a long time, Brian was the original “You know…that guy…he was in…umm, Cocoon and I think Tommy Boy!” actor. I was guilty of forgetting his name too until Cocoon which would’ve been around 1985. What can you say though. Being “forgotten” because you … Continue reading

Halloween 2019: the LEGO® avatars and guests!

I went with Where’s My Pants‽ Guy. Co-Worker/Friend Holly is Elvira. This year’s guests are a couple bootlegs I scored this Summer: Spider-Ham and The Mask. Then there’s a possessed waitress from LEGO’s new The Hidden Side sets and Captain Phasma … Continue reading

Joker: Worth Seeing

I ran out of true Horror movies to review for this October but given how the last couple years have been a shit show under Orange Foolius, I think this interpretation fits the bill. In short, I liked it immensely … Continue reading

Spider-Man: Far From Home: Worth Seeing

After a huge event movie (Aftermath) bringing 11 years of story to a close, one would think the trivial adventures and personal life of Spider-Man would be a letdown. Not so, Kevin Feige brilliantly found a way to give the … Continue reading

Brightburn: Worth Seeing!

An unusual combination of a Superhero origin story that transforms into a Horror movie. Not an easy feat but the people behind it succeed. Be warned, it did get pretty gruesome in how the victims meet their grisly fates. The … Continue reading

Welcome to July with a shift in timeliness

For the last couple months I have been digging out slowly while sticking mostly to the chronological series of events with the exception of keeping the header art, color scheme and my exercise progression updated. Given the events of last … Continue reading
