Sony has made one of the biggest blunders they could have possibly made by not including an UltraHD  Blu-ray player with the upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro. Considering that the significantly weaker XBox One S is cheaper and has a UHD BD player included, Sony could not have possibly made a dumber mistake. Last year, Akamai, […]

2016 is being ruthless. It’s showing absolutely no mercy. Since the first few weeks in January, 2016 has been taking away beloved and legendary entertainers. Unfortunately, that streak continues with the death of Gene Wilder. We all grew up with Willy Wonka and even those who don’t particularly like the movie know enough of it to […]

I’m fed up with critics almost more than I can bear. I really have no idea what those people want from movies anymore. Look at the critics vs the audience for movies like Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. The difference between what each of those groups of people want in movies is staggering, and – once again […]

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 […]

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. […]
