Elephant In The Room

Let’s just get this out of the way: Dumbo is a bad movie. It was made in 1941 in an attempt by Walt Disney to cut his losses after Fantasia flopped, because Americans in the early 40s were stupid and awful and I don’t care if it was the Great Depression, Fantasia was amazing. Clocking […]

Fievel Goes West

The best sequels function not only as a follow up to an adventure started elsewhere, but also function as their own story. There are some excellent examples of this, movies that shine as sequels and movies in their own right: The Dark Knight, The Godfather 2, and D2: The Mighty Ducks. There are also failures, […]

Diary of a Killer: Noah Calhoun

Before I start, I’ll admit to some bias here. I’ve disliked Nicholas Sparks ever since 2008 when I was in the Army dating a girl long distance, and she chose to let me know t was over by suggesting I read “Dear John.” When she sent it to me, I called her and she said […]

If I see you say something I disagree with, we’re going to fight about it. I’ve written negatively slanted blogs about plenty of things I love. Recently […]

Chicken Fight

We’re going to try something a little different this week. I was discussing with my friend Cody the time honored question of “how many 10 year olds do you think you could beat in a fight?” Obviously, in a weapons-free environment, I think I could take anywhere from 15 to 20 as long as it […]

No No Power Rangers

This is a bad movie. Start to finish. I hate this. Why am I doing this? Those words went through my head as I sat down to watch this week’s movie. This is going to be a long blog, a return to form with a classic movie review. Nostalgia has always kind of been my […]
