Testosterone. If ever there was a movie that embodied the very essence of testosterone it was ‘Expendables.’ It was a lofty idea of course. Write a story about a bunch of badasses and have badass actors play the badasses.
Good luck making it happen though. Hollywood doesn’t like simple. It likes complicated. Confused. Flipped over. Messed about. And especially ‘ruined.’Continue Reading →
In December of 2010 one of the most badass movies ever was released to theaters. A sequel 28 years in the making, ‘Tron: Legacy’ captivated viewers and revived interest in a franchise for a frothing, eager audience.
There are some that have said that that ‘Tron: Legacy’ stank like the open-cheeked farts of old woman that had just eaten seven Taco Bell Burrito Supremes. However, studies have shown that people that dislike the Tron franchise are big ‘ole dummies with dysfunctional genitalia and who probably love the taste of salamander poo.Continue Reading →
Oh, and he’s totally made up.
But we sure did enjoy watching Rambo kill as many people as he could get his hands (and weapons) on (and into).
Gun violence in America is higher than anywhere else in the world. It’s easy to assume that it’s because of movies like this. Are we gonna stop wanting, making, and watching movies like this? F*** NO!!!Continue Reading →
Great television shouldnâ€™t just reflect our innate need to be distracted and entertained. It should at least try to reflect some of society that weâ€™re running away from at full speed. Is a criminal justice degree really that easy to obtain? The current criminal justice system is filled with good and bad eggs and televisionâ€™s endless barrage of cop shows arenâ€™t that far outside of the box. For every Joe Friday and Gil Grissom, thereâ€™s a bad egg or two in the same carton.Continue Reading →

However…Continue Reading →
You’ve had that moment. It’s that conversational T-bone collision (CTBC) that completely mangles all prior good feeling and turns everything afterward into a clusterf***. It comes in many shapes and sizes. Every shade of pain. Every level of hell.Continue Reading →
Sesame street is a staple of children’s television having been around since 1969. And it pretty much invented the genre. There isn’t a human being in America that couldn’t sing you the opening theme song.
But in all honesty, children’s programming is creepy. It may be designed to keep the interest of a child, but it looks like something a perma-tripping hippie would come up with. In fact, the conversation probably went a lot like this:Continue Reading →
Joseph (Joe) Son played the character Random Task in ‘Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery.’ In the movie, he spoofed the character of Odd Job from ‘Goldfinger,’ a film in the James Bond catalog.
Much like Odd Job, Random Task was an abnormally strong Korean martial artist and body guard with an affinity for throwing dangerous objects. However, Random Task didn’t throw a razor-lined bowler hat. He threw a shoe. And the character that played him was a real life criminal.Continue Reading →
