Top Gun: Maverick (2022) thoughts

Ignore the incorrect release date. Rated: 3.5 / 5 Wokeness: 2.5 / 5 I thought it would be another 5-8 years before films of this quality started coming out again. Films with honest-to-God effort behind them. Sure that effort isn't seen in the story or character department, at least beyond my standards of B-movie fare; … Continue reading Top Gun: Maverick (2022) thoughts

Rant on insults and death-wishes; plus thoughts on Oh! / Ah! My Goddess!

Introduction that you can skip if you just want the anime review. So I've received some interesting responses to a few prior blog posts I made over the years. In particular, posts I made regarding the holocaust and pedophilia (if you want a taste of both, go play Barbarossa). The type of responses I do … Continue reading Rant on insults and death-wishes; plus thoughts on Oh! / Ah! My Goddess!

Spontaneous Combustion (1990) brief thoughts

Rated: 2.5 / 5 So there was studio meddling with this film. A rough cut exists that's, well, rough. Unfinished special effects, not all shots are in it that should be (a few of which made it into the theatrical cut), but it is a more cohesive vision. In particular, the film clearly becomes something … Continue reading Spontaneous Combustion (1990) brief thoughts

Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off (2022) thoughts

Rated: 4 / 5 My first experience with skateboarding was primarily watching other people doing it, seeing videos of it, or playing videogames on it. Never really tried it myself (I'm not an adrenaline junkie, not like that). Tony Hawk Pro Skater (PS1, 1999) was the big game that the friends of my time (my … Continue reading Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off (2022) thoughts

No Country for Old Men (2007), thoughts

Rated: 3 / 5 It's alright. I laugh myself sometimes. Ain't a lot else you can do.Ed Tom Bell Nihilism is what many say about the themes of this film. That there is no rhyme or reason to many things. It's just chaos. Things just happen. Concepts of fairness and justice are social constructs that … Continue reading No Country for Old Men (2007), thoughts

The Hunted (2003) review

The tagline is hilarious, because the alternate one is, "Some men should not be found." But it could be worse, like, "If you're it... you're dead!" Rated: 3.5 / 5 One of the most underrated movies out there. I honestly don't get the hate people have for this. The hatred isn't because the camerawork is … Continue reading The Hunted (2003) review

Once in a Lifetime (2020?) review

Have you ever wanted to play a game where you get to bang your step-sisters, your step-mother, your teacher, a rich bitch, your step-sister's best friend, and a female ninja (sometimes in a threesome)? If not, then this game might change your mind.
