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

Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) review

https://horrornews.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Bram-Stokers-Dracula-poster.jpg Rated: 4 / 5 Wokeness: 2 / 5 But yet we see around us every day the growth of new beliefs, which think themselves new; and which are yet but the old, which pretend to be young--like the fine ladies at the opera.Dracula, by Bram Stoker, Chapter XIV, Dr. Seward's Diary Halloween season is … Continue reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) review

The Green Knight (2021) vs. Gawain and the Green Knight (1991)

The Green Knight Rated: 1 / 5 Wokeness: 3 / 5 You know, the most hilarious thing about this is the imdb description of it. I quote: A fantasy re-telling of the medieval story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.imdb What the hell did they think it was before? Historical fiction absent of any … Continue reading The Green Knight (2021) vs. Gawain and the Green Knight (1991)

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

Beowulf (2007), and the passing down of stories and their values

Rated: 2 / 5 Do not foster pride, glorious warrior! The great fame of your might lasts but a little while. then soon enough will sickness or the sword deprive you of strength-- or the grasp of flames, or the surging flood, or the slashing blade, or the flight of a spear, or horrid old … Continue reading Beowulf (2007), and the passing down of stories and their values
