James Bond films ranked worst to best

I'm not listing No Time to Die. Fuck that movie and the people who made it. It killed the Bond franchise. People can say what they want about how well-made it is objectively speaking, with the acting, action scenes, whatever else. But it did things that shouldn't be done in the 007 franchise. And considering … Continue reading James Bond films ranked worst to best

Entertainment Industry Nostalgia: Highlights of 1992

This year was unfortunate compared to the last 2 years. Political correctness really began to rear its ugly head in the films and tv shows. Thankfully, there were still some solid entries. And I'm hoping this is just because this was an election year, with typical liberal Hollywood rooting for the Democratic candidate, who did … Continue reading Entertainment Industry Nostalgia: Highlights of 1992

Goldeneye, and No Time To Die, in 5 seconds

Since I'm not looking forward to No Time To Die, I decided to revisit some of the older James Bond flicks. Well, finally got inspiration for making those "in 5 seconds" films that are usually not literally 5 seconds. Tempted to be an even bigger smartass and say "in 7 seconds," but that would still … Continue reading Goldeneye, and No Time To Die, in 5 seconds

Bone (1991-2004) comic review

Rated: 2.5 / 5 Wokeness: 2 / 5 This comic gets plenty of things right, primarily with regard to how to put the reader in the middle of things, not really holding their hand with a slow sturdy introduction into the world, its occupants, factions, and characters. You are plopped right into the immediate aftermath … Continue reading Bone (1991-2004) comic review

Secretary (2002) review

Rated: 3 / 5 A while back, I went hard on those 50 Shades films (first, second, and third) in a series of drunk reviews (I couldn't get through those films sober). I never thought I'd find myself saying this, but I was too easy on those movies. Because I'm ashamed to admit that I … Continue reading Secretary (2002) review
