Rocky IV: A Delightfully Watchable Deviation (Review)

Oh man, Rocky IV… This is when the series really got out there. I’ve long held the belief that this is not a good movie, even though it’s such a delightful moviegoing experience. And after rewatching it the other night, after reading about Sylvester Stallone’s intention to recut the movie (without the totally realistic, commonContinue reading “Rocky IV: A Delightfully Watchable Deviation (Review)”

Bill & Ted Face The Music: Surprisingly Triumphant (Spoiler-Free Review)

I love Bill & Ted. I saw both of the original movies when I was in high school and was going through some stuff. Connecting with one of my, then, casual acquaintances over them really did a lot to get me through what I was going through and it also led to him becoming oneContinue reading “Bill & Ted Face The Music: Surprisingly Triumphant (Spoiler-Free Review)”

Cobra Kai Season 1: Good Fun or Toxicity Incarnate? (Review)

The first two seasons of Cobra Kai just hit Netflix and, to mark the occasion, I thought I’d revisit the Karate Kid franchise to see how well its aged over the years.

The Karate Kid or: that thing they keep cutting to in Cobra Kai (Review)

The Karate Kid is iconic. There’s no beating around the fact that most of you reading this have already seen this movie before; it’s a staple of anyone who grew up with a VCR, DVD Player or Cable TV’s film watching experience. But, since Cobra Kai is crane-kicking it’s way onto Netflix next week, andContinue reading “The Karate Kid or: that thing they keep cutting to in Cobra Kai (Review)”

Titanic II or: what a $500,000 budget and a Van Dyke triple-threating gets you

It isn’t hard to look at 2010’s Titanic II and laugh. There’s a level of narcism to releasing a movie about a doomed ship called the “Titanic II” while knowing that someone, somewhere, will assume it’s a sequel to James Cameron’s 90’s staple Titanic. That narcism made this a hard enough pill to swallow forContinue reading “Titanic II or: what a $500,000 budget and a Van Dyke triple-threating gets you”

High Score Review (Netflix) – A Crash Course in Gaming

I like video games. How daring and unheard of me, right? For as long as I can remember, I have always been able to find refuge from the troubles of life by sitting down and getting lost in gaming.

Was Joel Schumacher’s “Batman and Robin” really that bad?

Joel Schumacher’s (may he rest in peace!) take on the caped crusader and his plucky, albeit much whinier, sidekick/boy wonder may have killed the franchise upon it’s arrival in 1997, but is it really the travesty of cinema it’s been made out to be? Honestly? I don’t think so! We recently watched this movie forContinue reading “Was Joel Schumacher’s “Batman and Robin” really that bad?”
