The previous weekend certainly was interesting. I did see Batman v Superman and frankly – I liked it! No, it wasn’t a fantastic movie, but it wasn’t awful either. What I do find more intriguing is the fact that the critics hated the movie, and I’m convinced that they hate the public for liking the movie. […]

How to add forced subtitles to Blu-ray .mkv files

(I write this article in total defiance of the idiots at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) as well as Advanced Access Content System (AACS LA) for shutting down SlySoft, the makers of DVD and Blu-ray ripper AnyDVD HD, which as usual has been accused of being a pirating tool regardless of its beneficial […]

He’s one of the more important characters in the original Star Wars. Although his presence on-screen only lasted a few seconds, he role was arguably critical. He’s the pilot who initially refused to take Luke and Obi-wan to Alderaan but seemed to suggest the big, furry guy behind him – a fateful decision that forever altered […]

To hell with that idiotic football game or the inconsiderate followers of said football game who can’t resist flooding everyone’s Facebook and Twitter feeds when they should be watching the f**king game instead; and to hell with The Walking Dead, too. (Yes, I went there.) It’s DEADPOOL MONTH! Oh, right, there’s a romance-related thing this month, too. […]

What the hell, 2016? What is your gripe against British entertainment legends who are at or near 69 years old? Did England wrong you in a previous year or something? Knock it off! [EDIT: Only a few hours after posting this, we learned that Glenn Frey, guitarist and founding member of The Eagles has died. This […]

The new year is upon us and The Force Awakens continues to crush more and more records. It would seem that J.J. Abrams’ fears about reaching $1.5 billion globally were unfounded. The Revenant and The Hateful Eight do very well in their limited releases, Star Wars matte paintings are still amazing, new Doctor Strange photos are released, […]

There no doubt about it – Star Wars has returned, and it breaking box office records left and right. I’m not going to give it a full review because I generally don’t do reviews, but I have to say that I loved it. Yes, it borrows very heavily from the original Star Wars (I’m not calling it A New […]

WAAH! THAT’S A SPOILER! I definitely ended up being more than a bit rant-y on this one, but I’m really sick of whiners who arbitrarily claim that any particular scene in a movie trailer is a “spoiler”. If that’s true, then why the hell are these people watching the trailer in the first place? I also […]

Anyway, Mark Hamill loves his secrets, Sony surprises the world by stopping Betamax tape production, more UHD Blu-rays are announced, lots of Furious movies are on the way, MST3K returns, I […]

I haven’t had a rant like this in a long time, but Pepsi totally, utterly, and completely botched the Pepsi Perfect promo. Frankly, Pepsi should be absolutely ashamed of themselves and whoever was in charge of that campaign should be reprimanded or fired. Yes, I really do believe that and I explain why in the show. […]
