Keanu: The Walking Meme And Genuinely Good Guy [Always Be My Maybe]

I was watching Always Be My Maybe with my wife on Valentine’s Day, munching on cheesecake, pecan pie with ice cream, and M&Ms when Keanu Reeves walked onto the screen as the mysterious date for the lovable and luckless in love, Sasha Tran. He strode into the pretentious restaurant, a caricature of fine dining, dressed in blackContinue reading “Keanu: The Walking Meme And Genuinely Good Guy [Always Be My Maybe]”

More Miniseries Please

In the aftermath of the wildly popular show The Queen’s Gambit, I heard many people reflect on how nice it was that the show was just one season, and then they recommended it to others with the comfort that they wouldn’t need to overcome their commitment issues or cheat on their current television relationship, it was justContinue reading “More Miniseries Please”

[Midnight Sky] Is Very Mediocre, So Lay off

Before watching Midnight Sky, there were the criticisms on Twitter, which do not hold enough weight to make me not watch a movie that seems intriguing, but they are enough to temper my expectations. And maybe it was these tempered expectations that allowed me to enjoy the movie, but enjoy it I did. Midnight Sky theContinue reading “[Midnight Sky] Is Very Mediocre, So Lay off”

Netflix And The New Made-For-TV Movies

My wife and I just finished watching Falling Inn Love. It was horrible. The characters were either too flat or too over the top with an impressive inability of any of them to find the happy medium. The story was poorly paced, often convoluted, with large chunks that were totally unnecessary and yet somehow still completelyContinue reading “Netflix And The New Made-For-TV Movies”

Addiction And Obsession: The Ending Of [The Queen’s Gambit]

The Queen’s Gambit can most succinctly be described as a series that explores the two-sided nature of obsession and addiction, and it uses one very engaging young woman and the world of chess to do so. And it works really well. The seven-episode series is pure entertainment, easy to binge and rewarding if taken slow. ItContinue reading “Addiction And Obsession: The Ending Of [The Queen’s Gambit]”

Top Ten TV Shows

Out of all the forms of entertainment to rank, television shows may be the most difficult. I would attribute this to the expanse of a single show, reaching across so many characters for so long, introducing new storylines and plot lines every season, growing and adapting the feel and mood of the show based onContinue reading “Top Ten TV Shows”

The Apache Relays: The Greatest Upset In Camp History [Heavyweights]

The 90s movie classic Heavyweights is a feel-good comedy that discus-tosses body shaming into the lake like an Apache Relay trophy and then asks viewers all across the world to judge people by their character in order to make them feel good about who they are, which will lead to better decisions and a healthier life.Continue reading “The Apache Relays: The Greatest Upset In Camp History [Heavyweights]”

The Scout Scene [Moneyball]

Few movies are able to communicate their main idea, using only one scene, better than Moneyball does when Billy Beane first meets with his scouts and talent developers. The scene is perfect. The film had established the depths to which the Oakland A’s had fallen in the wake of their team’s pilfering at the hands of richerContinue reading “The Scout Scene [Moneyball]”

Why We Need Season 3 Of [Mindhunter]

Am I doing this? Am I actually doing this? Am I going to write an entire post about something that doesn’t need saying? This post will be the appendix of the blog world… nobody knows why it exists, but it’s here, and it might even be doing something, although we can’t say what. Right now,Continue reading “Why We Need Season 3 Of [Mindhunter]”
