Hey, guys! I’m FINALLY here with a new post this week! Apologies for the absence—it’s been surprisingly busy around here lately! Anyway, I decided it was time to revive something that I haven’t done for a long while—some Schuster Sister Shenanigans! Continue reading

Premiere Particulars: True Detective

true detective 2

After a long year-plus of nervously waiting for the second season of HBO’s True Detective, it finally premiered a little over two weeks ago. I say “nervously” because I think pretty much every fan was on edge about some of the casting choices. I mean, Colin Farrell? Taylor Kitsch? Rachel McAdams? Vince freaking Vaughn?! Continue reading

TRUE DETECTIVE: THE ONLY POST YOU NEED TO READ ABOUT SEASON 1

For all of the True Detective info you ever could want.

Isaacs Picture Conclusions

Over the last couple of months a few of us sat around watching TV together and collectively jizzing each week after the conclusion of that week’s episode of True Detective, the phenomenal HBO mini series that brought us the likes of Rust Cohle, The Yellow King and some of the greatest character acting I’ve EVER seen. Once it was all over, we reckoned it would be too time consuming and LONG to try and detail all eight episodes so we sent BRIAN out for a carton of smokes, two suitcases of LONE STAR beer, three bottles of Clan MacGregor Scotch Whisky and some potted meat. When he finally fucking got back, we drew up a fire, did some shots (body shots???…….maybe……) and did some writin’ about what we thought of the first season. THANK YOU to everyone who participated!!! I know that was a long commute for some of you!!!

Basically, I hadn’t even heard about this show until I started seeing positive reviews for it, and now that I finally decided to check it out, here we are—four episodes in. Continue reading

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: a dazzling sequel

catching fire

I feel like I’m late to the party with this one. WordPress has simply exploded with Catching Fire reviews the last several days! And I’ve been paying close attention to those reviews.  Widely regarded as the best book of the Hunger Games Trilogy (I can’t comment on that since I’ve only read the first two), I had pretty hefty expectations for the Catching Fire film. Those expectations only grew upon seeing the many positive remarks critics and fellow bloggers had to share. Continue reading

Now You See Me: the clever crime of Ocean’s Eleven plus the magic of David Copperfield

Is it just me, or has this movie kind of flown under the radar? Surrounded by big, much-advertised summer films, Now You See Me seems to have gotten lost in the fray. But I distinctly remember getting excited about the trailer when I first saw it. With names like Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, and Mark Ruffalo Continue reading
