BOOK REVIEW: George A. Romero’s Nights of the Living Dead

When I was around 8 years old my older (and much cooler) cousin Justin (the guy who screams SLACK JAW PUNKS on the podcast) came over to my house wild-eyed and excited about a movie he found on a random record-able VHS (how us old timers watched movies at home before Netflix). Why he was randomly watching blank VHS tapes …

Drunken Monkey Movie Series Review: Puppet Master, Puppet Master II (1990)

Okay. I’m really really buzzed right now since I was in control of making my own drinks tonight. Nothing like being unsupervised and completely ignorant of how to cocktail properly, amiright? Three drinks later… As usual, I’m warning you that I might divulge some spoilers as my internal editor is sleeping off a 3-day bender in Tijuana. The aptly named …

Drunken Monkey Movie Review – PUPPET MASTER SERIES

All righty, folks. I’ve got another film franchise review for you. This time around I’ll be reviewing all 11 Puppet Master films. It will include the Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys which, technically, isn’t really part of the timeline but was thrown in somewhere in the middle. So…you’re welcome. Wasn’t someone supposed to stop me from doing this franchise review …

  Usually, I do not write articles about things that’s I do on my personal time, but after going out with the Wife and seeing Markiplier’s: You’re Welcome Tour, I had to say something. First off, I purchased the tickets for the obvious reason of being a fan of Markiplier, I did not go in with any expectations, to be …

Makin’ Bacon: Hollow Man(2000)

What do you find at the intersection of a peak 90s CGI, a star-studded cast, and a plot that presents a believable science to reach invisibility? Mostly looked over by cinema aficionados, thanks in no part to a completely bogus Rotten Tomato score of 27%, 2000’s Hollow Man is a 51:22 thrill ride that should be on every serious movie …

Silicon Valley S4E5: Blood Boy

“You dick, you dick, you dick,” exclaimed Jared(or Donald) at what can only be described as an Adonis pretty boy offered yet another humanizing moment for the lovable assistant. But, I’m not here today to discuss the developments on this week’s episode of Silicon Valley, aptly entitled “Blood Boy.” Rather, I want to take this opportunity to dive deeper into …

Injustice 2: The Revenge of Martha

NOT A SINGLE MARTHA REFERNCE?! I’d be remised if I said I wasn’t disappoint at the complete divorce from any easy jabs at Batman v Superman. Other than that small complaint, Injustice 2 is AWESOME. I have not had too much time on the core product (i.e. it’s a fighting game) but successfully completed story mode in about 4 hours …

Silicon Valley S4E3: Intellectual Property

What happens when you deliver an intellectually driven comedy that doesn’t hinge on damnation of nerd/geek culture (ala Big Bang Theory?) Who would think a dramatization of a tech startup in the valley could be some of the best television programming available. Now, if I told you Mike Judge is at the helm, could you fathom the existence of such …
