Looking back on the films of 2011, it’s clear that this was the year of nostalgia. Not just that commercially referenced ‘let’s do a remake’ variation that Hollywood has been cashing their soul in for over the last decade or so. This was something much different and more internally driven. The medium and ... Read More
Pixar has it out for me. They want me to cry. And, unfortunately for my tear ducts, they are good at it 10. Ratatouille: Ego’s Meal There is something so satisfying about watching Anton Ego eat the titular meal. His disdain for what had been a love at one point is written ... Read More
With Halloween only a week away,I decided a great way to countdown to the holiday would a series of spooky top tens. Let's start today with one of the classic creepy movie standby's; the gypsy curse. The gypsies don’t make quite as may menacing appearances in the media these days, mostly due ... Read More
Hooray for Halloween! A huge element that has such emphasis on the tone and mood of a film is the score. It’s the silent voice speaking when no words are spoken, the prelude to a moment of terror or heart break. It is what ties everything together. In the spirit ... Read More

Giant monsters. Has-been acting and singing sensations coming back for one more pop culture groping. Plots so hole-ridden they might as well be a donut factory.

Remake and sequel hysteria has hit an all-time high these past few years and it isn't showing any signs of stopping. With Raja Gosnell's The Smurfs laying waste to our cherished memories this past summer (to say nothing of Transformers), we have more Chipmunks to look forward to and the ... Read More
Thanks to the wondrous "Andy" our friend from Fandango Groovers that you all may know from our excellent Groovers and Mobsters present has put together yet another epic blogathon.
“Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms Yo!” Based on that conjecture Phantoms will not be involved in this list. Also, I really like Ben Affleck. He’s charming, down to earth, and seemingly unaffected by his Hollywood fame, a rare commodity in Tinsel Town. Unfortunately, his career is vomit worthy.
The phenomenon of the "Bromance" is alive and thriving in pop culture today. A bromance or man-crush is a close but non-sexual relationship between two (or more) men, a form of homo-social intimacy. Bill and Ted, Frodo and Sam........these are the man couples that have defined a friendly and almost awkward relationship on the big screen.
THE MILFcast DRINKING GAME Another podcast I listen to recently came up with their own drinking game. Seeing as we are the podcast that encourages drinking more than any other, it seemed like a great idea to steal. I mean, let's be honest, we need our own. Scroll down and check out ... Read More
