All Things End

The past couple of weeks have been interesting as several pop-culture phenomenon have concluded all at the same time. We have seen the end of stories about a fantasy world, political satire, superheroes, and some nerds who eat together, that have captured the collective hearts and imaginations of millions of people around the world in……read more

Weird words we use everyday

To tell you the truth I think all words are weird. Language in general is a very peculiar thing. It is just grunts and sounds arranged in a particular pattern or sequence that we have all collectively agreed has some sort of meaning. English in particular is complex and hard to learn as in it’s……read more

MET Gala 2019

I know this is a little late but I had to do a post about this year’s MET Gala. Every year the beautiful and the rich get together in an extravagant display of excess and wealth for…some reason. They choose a theme, people prepare, they make a scene, and stop for lots and lots of…read more

Some Stuff

As you know, I stopped posting for over a year and started again just recently. But during that time it wasn’t that I was not writing, I just didn’t complete anything that I wrote. Currently I have 18 draft posts just sitting there waiting to be re-examined and maybe posted. Well this is one of…read more

Bad Trek

The last post I wrote for this blog before I went on a ridiculously long break was about Star Trek Discovery. The show had just started, airing the first 2 episodes which created and destroyed the world I thought this story was to take place in. I had enjoyed the episodes but because I hadn’t……read more

Product placement

I still have friends that complain about product placement in movies. It used to be something that got to me as well but many years ago I kinda just got over it. Why? Because it properly reflects a realistic version of the world we live in. Look down at your clothes, look at your desk,…read more

Until

Music is a strange thing. It is a series of strung together sounds that are pleasing to the listener. Unless of course you are an old crotchety man waving his stick at the damned youth of today. But music has a way of instilling emotions, making you move fast, or slowing you down for just……read more

Get untethered

I don’t like horror movies. As a young child I was afflicted with night terrors and that combined with an over active imagination did not bode well for an evening’s slumber. As I grew older the terrors waned but my dislike for horror persisted. But every once in a while a horror movie catches my……read more

If you liked the Manga…

Every once in a while I have the audacity to let someone else pick the movie I am going to watch. That is just crazy! But the other day my friend begged me to go see Alita: Battle Angel. Despite my reservations and due to him offering to pay, I said yes. This was a movie I……read more

Stop Living in the Past

Nostalgianoun a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal association something done or presented in order to evoke feelings of nostalgia I get why nostalgia sells. For the most part it just makes people feel good. It is a familiarity taking you back to a…read more

Not the season I deserve

When watching a show you get involved with the story and characters. You understand them, you grow with them, and you feel what they feel. You follow along on their adventures are surprised, disappointed, and amazed. This affair has to come to an end at some point. Sometime abruptly when a show gets canceled… …more

A listicle about the X-Files

The last post I wrote for 2015 was a purposefully spoiler free pseudo-review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Between then and now there is a whole bunch of stuff I should have written about but those will have to continue to wait. With Jan 24th quickly approaching I would be remiss to forgo writing something about……read more

I have seen it

I haven’t written a movie review in a while. I haven’t written anything in a while for that matter. But this epic pop culture event could not be ignored even if I tried. This review will be lacking spoilers as best as I possibly can but I warn you just in case. …more

Summer’s over pt 4 – FanExpo!

The next weekend was FanExpo! I was so worried I wouldn’t be able to go but I figured out a way to get in for free. I worked the event! I got paid to be at something I wanted to go to and I got to see a lot of cool stuff. Win-win I tells……read more

Summer’s Over pt3

Along with PanAm came a lot of free shows, activities, and concerts throughout the city. Because of the mass crowds I didn’t try very hard to get to any of these shows. Except 1. The Roots put on a show at Nathan Phillip Square and I just had to be there. It was a… …more

Summer’s over pt 2

As the summer continued in the midst of jobless melancholy and creative bursts, I enjoyed afternoons out where I wondered the streets and met friends for lunch. The city was in a PanAm games frenzy as the streets were often filled with people and the city did its best to accomidate and entertain all… …more

Summer’s over pt 1

It is incredible how quickly the warm days pass. The heat, the sun, the extra vitamin D that makes everyone just a little bit happier. Street festivals, parades, concerts! Toronto becomes even more amazing when the weather just cooperates. We had a hot summer this year and I refused to complain about it. Sure… …more

Summer in the city

Just about 2 months ago I lost my job. It was a slap in the face and left me shocked and distressed for a little while. I sat at home watching tv, movies, and writing reviews trying to ignore it. While sitting at my desk looking for new employment this is the view that… …more

A new beginning

I have tried to write this review like 5 times and things just keep going wrong. Not just with my writing but saving it to the site. Hopefully the sixth time is the charm…… I had a perfect intro the last time I tried to get this up. It was about how Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment… …more

I need a fan

Who needs sunshine and picnics when there is cinematic awesomeness to witness? Not me! On Canada day, instead of heading to a park, or going to a fair, or even a party, I headed off to enjoy the holiday in a big way. You could even say it was XXL. …more
