My Gripe with Beauty and the Beast

My Gripe with Beauty and the Beast published on 3 Comments on My Gripe with Beauty and the Beast

Ok, so I have a small thing that I need to get off my chest. Apparently I am the only one amongst the group of people I hang out with that is bothered by, or has even noticed this. My own girlfriend has told me I am thinking way too much about this, that this doesn’t matter. But dammit this really bugs me and I feel like it’s important enough to talk about. This is one of those things that has been nagging at me for a really long time now and I just want to rant about it here. So if you’re on board for that then let’s go.Continue reading My Gripe with Beauty and the Beast

For about three years now, Greg, Billy, and I have had a protracted debate about whether or not Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze is a watchable movie. On the one hand, Greg and Billy believe it’s great, and on the other hand are the people who have taste.Continue reading On Subjectivity

Oscars 2017: Finding Common Ground

Oscars 2017: Finding Common Ground published on 1 Comment on Oscars 2017: Finding Common Ground

So the Oscars are behind us, and without getting into it properly they were, shall we say divisive. For example, some people believe that La La Land should have swept every category it was in, and other people are wrong.

People are upset over the Best Picture flub and are blaming Warren Beatty, while other people have pointed out that it was very likely the fault of a backstage accountant. Other people are upset that Casey Affleck won Best Actor despite allegedly being a danger to the women he works with. I saw at least one person upset that Lin-Manuel Miranda missed out on his chance at the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony), and if you honestly believe that Zootopia was better than Kubo and the Two Strings I will fight you.

The point I’m trying to make is that the event was a little polarizing. Continue reading Oscars 2017: Finding Common Ground

Scott Reads Terrible Erotica: “Fifty Shades Darker”

Scott Reads Terrible Erotica: “Fifty Shades Darker” published on No Comments on Scott Reads Terrible Erotica: “Fifty Shades Darker”

Internet, I’m going to level with you: In the last two weeks I’ve watched a ton of good movies. I saw John Wick Chapter 2, I saw Green Room, which is an excellent indie horror film on Netflix, and I saw The Great Wall, which at the very least was gorgeous.

I also saw the Fifty Shades sequel.Continue reading Scott Reads Terrible Erotica: “Fifty Shades Darker”

Out With the Old, In With the Sequel to the Old published on No Comments on Out With the Old, In With the Sequel to the Old

Alright, I haven’t written on video games in a while, so we’re going to do that for a change. Today I want to talk about a phenomenon that’s invaded video games, Hollywood, media in general, really. I’m talking about the concept of a tentpole franchise—that is to say, the tendency to prioritize sequels over new intellectual property.Continue reading Out With the Old, In With the Sequel to the Old
