The Goonies (1985)

Hey you guys… I’ve never seen the Goonies until last week. As part of the Cineplex Flashback Film Series, I said why not finally check it out. If I had to sum up this cult classic, I would say it is typical 80’s stuff. The film checked all the boxes: comedy, action, kids, and cheesy … More The Goonies (1985)

What We Bought Today: 2019 Topps Series 2 Baseball

INTRODUCTION I grew up in a small town in northern New Hampshire. As a kid, my town’s population warranted three sports cards stores, but by the time I was 15, they all closed.

Wild Rose (2019)

I don’t quite understand all the hype about Wild Rose. This movie was rather bland and didn’t inspire me to do anything, except maybe take care of my kids if I ever had any.

If I had to sum the live-action release of The Lion King, I would just say “meh.” If it weren’t for the exceptional and breathtaking cinematography, this movie would have bombed. The Lion King is one the crown jewels of Disney animation, and unfortunately, Jon Favreau did nothing to separate his film from that one. … More The Lion King (2019)

Crawl (2019)

Crawl was released to a 88% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. I can testify that those numbers are accurate. This intense thriller is man against beast, time against the storm, all the classic clinches that make for good stories. Kaya Scodelario carries the story from start to finish thanks to her ability to act brave … More Crawl (2019)

Stuber (2019)

Stuber wanted to modernize the cop buddy comedy by combining a blind cop, fresh out of Lasik surgery, and a desperate Uber driver. You would think there wouldn’t be any chemistry between Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani, but the two kinda make it work. Bautista may always be famous for his role as Drax, which … More Stuber (2019)
