The Shield (2002-2008) thoughts

Rated: 4 / 5 Anti-whiteness: 1.5 / 5 This show created a lot of misconceptions for me back in the day. Because I watched the first season (and a half) of this series back when it first came out, I was under the impression shows in general were more anti-PC back in the day than … Continue reading The Shield (2002-2008) thoughts

Entertainment Industry Nostalgia: Highlights of 1993

The year that, in my opinion, defined the 1990s. Music albums may have taken a bit of a backseat compared to prior years, but aside from that everything else was epic. Films were an overall improvement compared to last year (take that with a grain of salt however; this had some major misses to go … Continue reading Entertainment Industry Nostalgia: Highlights of 1993

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) thoughts

Rated: 4 / 5 "Kidnap the Sandy Claws, see what we will see. Lock him in a cage and then, throw away the key." I never appreciated this film as much as I wanted to back in the day.

The Batman (2022) thoughts

Rated: 1.5 / 5 Wokeness: 4 / 5 "It's one of the best Batman films yet," they said. "Exceeds all expectations," they said. "Finally, a live-action Batman movie that utilizes actual detective-work," they said. "What a load of shit," I say. This movie is everything I thought it was going to be. Woke as fuck, … Continue reading The Batman (2022) thoughts

Magic (1978) and Pin (1988) brief thoughts

Both films rated: 2.5 / 5 These types of movies suffer from the exact same problem, at least as far as my personal enjoyment goes. They're both about a socially awkward guy, bordering on crazy, who has talent to some degree; more-so in Magic, since the guy is as good a magician as he is … Continue reading Magic (1978) and Pin (1988) brief thoughts
