Watched “Sixteen Candles” the other night, only to find it’s a bit more date-rapey than I remember.

14th July 2013 by admin No Comments

(Trailer Parked is a new feature here on 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 […]

The Top 5 Comedies Of All Time

8th January 2013 by admin No Comments

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 […]

American Psycho, And The Worst Plane Trip Ever

11th December 2012 by admin No Comments

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 […]

In Brightest Day, In Crappiest Night

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 […]

Videodrome Sweet Home

1st July 2010 by admin No Comments

Just saw in Variety that Universal Pictures is going to do a remake of remake of Videodrome. Let me be clear here. I don’t mind bad movies. I’m a fan of them. I actually watched Death Wish V the other night, in which a seventy-three year-old Charles Bronson dealt vigilante justice to heavily armed organized crime figures, even […]
