I love George, but I have no intentions (drunken or otherwise) to go see the new flick. Everyone's still going to be watching Mad Max, so why even bother mentioning anything else in theaters this week? I've never been an avid David Letterman viewer, but he's always been a staple in the world of television and this past Wednesday night's farewell reminded me of a few crucial things that we often overlook. Doing a daily TV show where you are required to host and entertain for 30 minutes or longer is extremely difficult. Times ten when it's under the comedy/variety... Continue reading

It is dreary out and I don't feel well. I'm not controlling the universe with my mind (there would be no The Craft/Poltergeist/Jem/any remake if I were) but it is a nice coincidence that I have two (2) reasons to laze around all day and consume comfort food, of the literal and metaphorical kind. The cool and righteous can go see Mad Max: DAMN CHARLIZE DAMN but I am going to gorge on the following: Batman (1989): MICHAEL KEATON IS THE ONE TRUE BATMAN. Also, Kim Basinger's Vicki Vale is a style icon and Jack Nicholson dances to Prince. Arthur... Continue reading

Sure, it can be an endless stream of narcissism, audaciousness, mediocrity, insidious pseudo-intellectualism, sitcom jokes and selfies. But every now and then you get exposed to Finnish folk music and your soul is cleansed. It's like yodeling, The Mockingbirds Continue reading

I've never really understood why I like gang movies. Maybe it's because they put forth a decent allegory for society, with the violence and lack of women with power, and I get a perverse thrill out of watching that fictionalized truth. Maybe it's the fashion. Maybe it's the excess testosterone metastasizing into unrequited homoerotic passions and they just have to dance. It's probably the dancing and the fashion. But it's also the partnerships. Bonds that are forged against violence and injustice. Drama and just enough violence. There are crises of faith and dark humor. There is Sean Connery not changing...

The first pirated MP3 to be downloaded was Metallica's "Until It Sleeps". Is it ironical because of the Napster battle or because I don't really like that song so much? Who fucking knows. Continue reading
