Star Wars: Goddamnit that’s fucking it!

A Long Massive Intro "If Hollywood isn’t going to risk telling new stories, the least they could do is not fuck up the old ones." -- David Ehrlich I tried.  I tried with considerable effort to avoid getting back into discussing this film.  I did a review of this film months ago, and I may … Continue reading Star Wars: Goddamnit that’s fucking it!

The Youth of the Nation: Suicide Club

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDKwCvD56kw Introduction Over the past couple weeks, my drive has slowed to a crawl.  I have no one but myself to blame, for the most part.  I have a bad habit of taking on too many projects at once, from television series (attempting to make a review for Naoki Urasawa's Monster, Babylon 5, Vietnam - … Continue reading The Youth of the Nation: Suicide Club

Resident Evil 7 (2017) review

Rated: 2.5-3 / 5 (depending on my mood) Completely Tangent Intro So I was playing through The Witcher 3, with all the DLC installed.  And after, I don't know, between 50-60 hours of playing, as good as that game is, all I could think was, "Goddamnit, isn't this fucking game over yet?  How fucking long … Continue reading Resident Evil 7 (2017) review

Philosophies of Fahrenheit 451: Chapter 3 and other quotes

Continued from Chapter 2 Last chapter. Chapter 3: Burning Bright Page 109: "[Fire's] real beauty is that it destroys responsibility and consequences. A problem gets too burdensome, then into the furnace with it."

Philosophies of Fahrenheit 451: Introduction and Chapter 1

Read the book, plan to see the movie.  Until then, here's my thoughts on the philosophical points that I wish to point out from my first read-through.

Jumanji (1995) and Welcome to the Jungle (2017) dual review

Jumanji is one of my favorite films from the 90s.  It's not just a good kid-flick, but a good film in general.  So when I heard they were making a sequel to it, all I could think was, "Why?"  Then I saw the trailer, and I thought, "WHY!?!?!?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QKg5SZ_35I My second thought was, "So this … Continue reading Jumanji (1995) and Welcome to the Jungle (2017) dual review
