Real or Made-up?

Real or Made-Up? When I was a kid I was intrigued by makeup. I would stand by my mother, her hair in curlers as she applied powders, creams, and colours, getting ready for the day. I wanted to do the same. Despite dabbing a little lipstick on my lips and… …more

Best of the Worst

Best of the Worst As a movie goer and avid comic reader, it has been clear to me for a long time that there is a problem with the DC cinematic universe. Since the horrendous Batman Forever where producers insisted on veering away from the dark humour that is Tim… …more

Film Analysis

So I have had a pretty boring day at work today. Things are slow, it is raining, and everyone just seems to be a bit lethargic. Maybe they are recovering from their epic weekends. Because of this, I have been perusing the interwebs and fallen into watching film analysis videos. As a person who loves… …more

Beautifully Bland

Beautifully Bland A problem that seems prevalent in a world where the technology is advancing faster than people learning how to properly utilise it, is that you get absolutely beautiful films rich in colour, texture, and wonder that lack story, intensity, and gravitas. The films often fall flat… …more

An Argument Against Binge Watching

An Argument Against Binge Watching With the advent of easily acquired content people tend to binge on visual media. Specifically TV shows and sometimes movie franchises. People will sit for 10 or 15 hours straight watching the new season of a show… …more

Perfect End

Perfect End I am going to start by saying this is a review of Logan and there will be spoilers. This hasn’t been an issue for a long time since I have been excessively lackadaisical about posting my reviews. But since the movie just came out on Friday… …more

We’ve still got nothing in Common

We’ve still got nothing in Common A Retro Review I had never seen Breakfast At Tiffany’s until recently and I gotta say I didn’t like it. Sacrilege! I know. It is a movie that has been praised for being a… …more

Christmas in NYC

Over this past Christmas I went for a short, pleasant trip across the border to New York. Well, really, New Jersey but New York was just a train ride away. I have been to the Big Apple many times in my life as my aunt lives there and growing up it was an excuse… …more

Going Rogue

Going Rogue On a cold, dreary, Friday the 13th, the second Friday of 2017, I am sitting at work waiting. Waiting for people to finish their job so I can begin mine. I am running out of ways to look busy while everyone else around me looks to be swamped. I flip… …more

Guilty Pleasures – Movie Edition

I love movies and for me there is no real guilty pleasure in watching a movie that I like. But I have to say when I admit to watching and liking some of these I am ridiculed by some of my “friends”. But I didn’t go to the movies this week and I had to……read more

Notable Names

I have often wondered where people come up with names for all these well know characters on TV. I found out for some of my favourite shows. The Simpsons It seems Matt Greoning didn’t look too far for his inspiration. He used his own family. Homer is actually the name of his… …more

What’s the exchange rate?

Slumdog Millionaire Even though it was a whole day and a second late, my 2009 movie watching has started on the right foot. I am glad I convinced myself not to waste my time and money on, what I hear, is a horrible movie. I may still go see The Spirit at some point… …more

Like Sands through the Hour Glass

As the years fly by the New Year gets to be more precious as it brings with it a certain hope that things will get better. New chances, a new beginning, remember the past and learn from your mistakes. Most everyone lives for the future, thinking that today will take care of itself and… …more

No Resolve

Well, it is a new year. The fireworks have been set off, food has been eaten, drinks have been drunk, the clock ticked, or possibly tocked, and a new year has begun. All of a sudden everyone is asking, “What’s you new years resolution?” This is always a tough question to answer. I am… …more

It Was nice to have met you

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button In the last few weeks I haven’t written any movie reviews. This isn’t because I haven’t seen any movies but because there was nothing that I have seen that moved me to write one. The movies I have seen in the last while have been either mediocre or… …more

Observe – Tra: The season has us slacking on the blog. We will be disappointing our readers. But I wrote up a… …more

Time to Shove, Time to Glare

Christmas, Christmas time is here Time for joy and time for cheer Those are the words sung by those loveable rodents who like to lie! Joy and Cheer this time of year? I think not. It should say something about pushing and shoving and fighting for a parking spot. Those words may have rung… …more

Just a Bit of Dialogue

I have been meaning to post some of my fiction for some time but I can’t bring myself to post any of it. For some reason I have a habit of being pretty depressive when I write. So I have decided to post some of my random dialogue. I do seem to be a bit
