    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) There’s a fine line between inspirational and cloying, and this movie teeters dangerously on the brink the entire film. I found that half the time I went along for the ride, while the other half I had to distance myself from the main character. Walter Mitty is a really old character updated here as a writer for Life Magazine during the period when they were getting out of the print business. Mitty (Ben Stiller) is assigned to photograph for the final [...]

    Daily Venom #9: What A Lousy RAW

    June 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

    Well, was RAW lousy tonight or what? In three hours, WWE gave us one very good match (Cena vs. Cesaro) that ended in a DQ, and one decent match that has zero storyline significance (i.e. just thrown out there; Sheamus vs. Neville). The opening segment went entirely too long and the crowd didn’t care. It was very much the Price is Right; Seth gave Apple watches to J&J and Kane, a vacation to Hawaii to Kane, and then a car to J&J. Surprise, no one even messed with the car. We get [...]

    Tonight on RAW, the reunited Authority battles the former Shield as Seth Rollins and Kane team up to take on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. That’s the only match WWE has announced for tonight’s broadcast. Last week, Rollins and Kane left Brock Lesnar laying in the middle of the ring. Will Lesnar be on RAW tonight to seek revenge? We’ll have to wait to find out. I’m sure Bray Wyatt will definitely be around to play some more mind games with Reigns ahead of their match at [...]
  • Saving-Mr.-Banks
    Saving Mr. Banks (2013) As a former employee of Walmart, watching this movie gave me vague flashbacks to those awful corporate brainwashing “orientation” videos we were forced to watch in our first few days on the job that basically informed us that A: unions are the devil and will kill your children, and B: Sam Walton was the greatest person to ever walk the face of the earth sans Jesus. If I had to re-write that sentence for this movie, the makers of this movie want you to remember two [...]

    Daily Venom #8 Review: Into The Woods (2014)

    June 28, 2015 // 0 Comments

    Well I made it a week on the Daily Venom front, and today I’m throwing a wrinkle into it. Instead of writing a column or ranting, I’m writing a movie review. I’m not going to do this too frequently (although I will be doing it again soon), but what I’ll call DVR will definitely be a thing going forward. Maybe I’ll try and do one review a week. We’ll see. Anyway the first DVR is the 2014 Disney film Into The Woods, which is a film adaptation of the Broadway [...]

    Quick Daily Review #145: Stand by Me (1986)

    June 28, 2015 // 2 Comments

    Stand by Me (1986) Some of my most sacred childhood memories involve walking the local railroad tracks, most of the time with my dad trailing not that far behind. I grew up in the early to mid 90s, so it was not quite the same odyssey that the characters in this movie experience, but I get very fond nostalgia flashbacks whenever I think about this film. This is one of those universal movies that is for us, what Mark Twain’s Huck Finn was for the generation a hundred years before us. The story [...]

    Yesterday was just a fabulous day in the United States as the Supreme Court gave a rule that caused many to celebrate. That ruling of course was that gay marriage would be legal in all 50 states. Since we live a politically correct world, this ruling was a fantastic thing because #LoveWins. And how can you possibly be against love winning and equality? The answer of course is that you can’t, and if you are then you are a homophobe. Here’s the thing though, judicial activism should [...]

    The Public Enemy (1931) This is a story of two kids, Tom Powers and Matt Doyle, who begin a life in crime early on. One of them winds up going straight and becomes a policemen, the other winds up a crook. You can guess which one James Cagney plays. This movie is over eighty years old but still feels fresher and more original than at least half of the movies I see on a given year. The aesthetics and cinematography are astoundingly good for a movie this old, and the movie flows like a modern [...]

    Wednesday night I did something I haven’t done a very long time, and that is tune into Impact Wrestling. From the beginning at that, although probably because I watched Ring of Honor and just decided to stick around. To be perfectly honest, I expected to last about 30 minutes. I mainly wanted to see how bad it was, because it was pretty horrible the last time I wrote them off. To my surprise, the show was actually enjoyable. Looks like I picked a good night to watch too since it was one [...]

    The Dead Pool (1988) It had completely escaped my memory that both Liam Neeson and Jim Carrey (in yes, their only movie together) appeared in the fifth and final installment of the Dirty Harry franchise known as “The Dead Pool”. Those are two of my favorite actors for very different reasons, and if any modern actor was going to take over the mantle of Dirty Harry right now Neeson would definitely be it, although at the time of this movie, he was a few decades away from becoming the future [...]
