Baywatch Is One Funny Sun of a Beach

When I went to see Baywatch, I didn’t have high hopes. It was already being panned by people “in the know.” While I really wanted to see this film, my expectations were not high for the movie.

Ridley Scott’s (Broken) Covenant

In space, no one can hear you scream. Unfortunately for everyone sitting around me at the local Malco, I was plenty loud and vocal. I try to write only positive, upbeat reviews and articles with my trademark snark and sarcastic… Continue Reading →

The Problem of the Franchise

I remember seeing First Blood for the first time, as a kid. I remember thinking at the time that the movie was titled Rambo: First Blood. It wasn’t until much later in life that I realized Rambo’s name wasn’t in the title. Speaking… Continue Reading →

And long before LOST’s flashbacks, flash forwards and sideways storytelling, sci-fi was complicated and cool. The X-Files made conspiracies, science fiction and… Continue Reading →
