New column up at Project Shanks.com, on Robin Williams, depression, and a confession of my own. I had a lot of trouble dealing with the death of Robin Williams, and I had to eventually realize it went far beyond just being a fan of the man since I was seven. Check it out here.

Watched “Sixteen Candles” the other night, only to find it’s a bit more date-rapey than I remember.
(Trailer Parked is a new feature here on RAI.com where I’ll do the same thing everyone does while sitting in a movie theater, sit in judgment of movie trailers. Here goes.) “R.I.P.D.” is a new comedy-action movie starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds, due for release on July 19, 2013. Quick Synopsis: It’s Dead Men […]
Every Tuesday, I’ll give you my top five list of something. We start the year with my Top Five Comedies of all time. Feel free to discuss, argue, snipe, etc. 1. Blazing Saddles – Close call, but top to bottom, I never stop laughing. 2. Airplane – Another parody that has far outlived the genre […]
The Twitter conversation linked to the right brought up some unpleasant memories for me Monday. I don’t fly very often, for several reasons. First, I’m a driver. I’ve lived in Texas all my life, and we drive everywhere. I’ve taken multiple car trips of over a thousand miles, and thought nothing about it. I prefer […]
I finally got around to watching “Green Lantern” on cable. As the resident comic book geek, I felt compelled to watch the “Green Lantern” movie, even though it was critically panned. Panned by critics? Well, perhaps “beaten senseless and left for dead on the side of the road by critics” would be a better way to […]
My new podcast is up on “The Avengers” movie, as King Geek amongst my friends I’ve gotten a lot of questions on the flick. Here’s my discussion and answers, including: Who the purple guy at the end of the movie is, and what that means. Which character I though got too much screen time. The […]

Just making sure it’s not part of a political campaign. — Reid Kerr probably wouldn’t vote for a vampire, as far as he knew.

Longtime readers of my stuff know what a fan of bad movies I am. In honor of today, I tackle one of the longest running yet worst franchises ever… Reid Watches It So You Don’t Have To: The Friday The 13th Franchise He’s more recognizable than your average Vice-President, only with a slightly higher body […]
Watching True Blood with my wife, when a sex scene between Sookie and Eric came on. I realized watching the scene, then glancing over at her, that this show was never going to be deleted off the DVR. For her, this was her Super Bowl. I think women find vampires sexy because they have to […]
What’s worse for society, porn or romantic comedies?
Man, just from what I’ve read about part two, I can’t wait for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 3!” I bet it’ll be even better! — Reid hopes at the end of the Harry Potter movie, Samuel L. Jackson shows up and tells Harry he’s going to be a part of the Avengers […]
