Quick Daily Review #152: Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991)

July 5, 2015 // 0 Comments

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991) In the first Bill and Ted movie, the two teenagers upon whose shoulders the fate of humanity rests passed a school history report contest to ensure the future of their band, which will be the driving force to the future utopia in which as George Carlin tells us at the beginning “even the dirt is clean…” Now it’s the sequel, and instead of traveling through time collecting various historical figures to pad out their presentation roster they find themselves dancing with the reaper himself. Early in the movie they are murdered by two evil robot [...]

Quick Daily Review #151: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989)

July 4, 2015 // 0 Comments

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) The future of the world depends upon the band Wyld Stallions forming after two teenage misfits played by Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter getting an A+ on their high school history report final. With said future in jeopardy George Carlin of all people hops into an old school 20th century phone booth and travels through the portals of time to set things right. I must have watched this movie over a hundred times growing up and can quote most of it by heart, but it had been a good long while since I had sat down to watch it, so it was very interesting to [...]

Quick Daily Review #150: La Dolce Vita (1960)

July 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

La Dolce Vita (1960) I know for a fact that I am under-rating this movie in this review, but I don’t feel too bad about that. The reason I sought out this movie in the first place because it was the favorite film of the man who made me want to write about movies, Roger Ebert. Ebert reviewed this movie at least three times in his life, and the first time he did as a young college student, he casually dismissed it as a slightly above average three star movie, which is about what I have done here. As time would go on Ebert would grow to have a deeper and deeper connection with this movie, but [...]

Daily Venom #12: Stop Whining About PVP Balance Destiny Community

July 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

As the Iron Banner rages on again, so to does the constant complaining within the Destiny community. One need only go to Bungie’s forums or the Destiny Reddit to see near nonstop whining about balance in Destiny’s PVP. It’s really been a constant since the game released, and it is getting to be annoying. They whined about auto rifles, and they got nerfed. The whined about fusion rifles, and they got nerfed. They’ve been whining about hand cannons and shotguns for a while, and are getting more upset by the day that Bungie isn’t addressing it. And final round [...]

Quick Daily Review #149: True Lies (1994)

July 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

True Lies (1994) I don’t know if this is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s best action movie, but I believe it may be my personal favorite.  This is a good example of a very smart dumb movie. Arnold plays an American version of James Bond by night, and a normal loving boring husband day, to his wife played by the smoking hot at the time Jamie Lee Curtis. Arnold’s sidekick here is played capably by Tom Arnold in one of the few parts he’s made me not want to punch him in the face for.  The story is beside the point. It’s the usual terrorists and a huge nuke going to blow up some [...]

Daily Venom #11: You Should Be Watching Mr. Robot

July 1, 2015 // 2 Comments

It’s 11:23pm CT as I begin writing this, so I’m just barely going to get today’s installment out. Better to have a short one out at the last minute than fail at the daily thing so early. And this one will definitely be a short one. The second episode of Mr. Robot aired tonight on USA Network. If you haven’t been watching this show, you really need to start when it’s still right at the beginning of the season (less to have to binge through). Its first two episodes have both been fantastic, and I’m already enjoying it more than any other show since I quickly [...]

Lucha Underground 7/1/15 Preview: Puma v. Guerrero

July 1, 2015 // 1 Comment

Tonight’s episode of Lucha Underground features the LU Champion in action as Prince Puma battles Chavo Guerrero. Drago vs. Hernandez Prince Puma vs. Chavo Guerrero Lucha Underground airs tonight at 7pm CT on El Rey Network. Smith’s Sentiment: I want to like Lucha Underground, I really do. I’ve watched a few shows in the past and liked them, but the video above is really one of the big reasons why I just can’t get behind or excited about the show. I just don’t like the vibe and overall cheesiness of it, and they have competition in this timeslot with both ROH and [...]
