12/30/2019 - MY TOP TEN MOVIES OF 2019 LIST !!




As we near the end of 2019, I have to feed my compulsion to create as many lists as possible. Today, it’s my top 10 movies of 2019 list. To justify why I chose these ten films, I am going to show you the list I made of all the movies I saw in 2019. Not all of these movies were released this year, but this was the year I finally got around to see them. I am about to watch IT: Chapter 2 tonight, but based on the reviews and buzz on Youtube, I highly doubt it is making my top ten list. That is an interesting point for me to make, since a Stephen King adaptation almost took the number one spot this year. Ok, without further ado, here is my Top Ten of 2019:

10) US
9) Ready or Not
8) Ford Vs. Ferrari
7) The Irishman
6) Midsommar
5) Knives Out
4) Avengers: Endgame
3) Marriage Story
2) Doctor Sleep
1) Parasite

There are quite a few movies I have not seen yet, that have earned a lot of praise from my favorite youtubers, film twitter and friends who review films. These movies include The Lighthouse, Honeyboy, Uncut Gems and Booksmart.

There is one thing I need you to take into consideration, when looking over the movies I watched in 2019. During 2019, I wrapped up a part time job that I had, where I would take a client with special needs out into the community. Quite often we would go to the movies. I have highlighted and put the movies I saw with him in italics.  I am just pointing out that in a few of these scenarios, these are movies that I was paid to see, and I would not choose to see them on my own.

 Here is what I did see, in 2019:

Bumblebee (2018)
The Grinch (2018)
Ben is Back (2018)

6/27/2018 - Let's just get into this!

Welcome…. why are you here?    There are three things that I am going to talk about, in this safe little blog space. It is the perfect little digital coffee shop (minus the coffee) where we can have an actual discussion. Please, leave as many comments as you like. We can go back and forth. I would much rather take the time to talk to you, in my little digital domain, than go back and forth on Twitter or Facebook.    Wouldn’t it be amazing, if somehow some milk-like cortical fluid dripped out of my brain and passed through my hands, into the part of your brain that goes “Hey, this is something that will affect you today?” It probably won’t happen, but if you ever do share one of these posts with another person, well, then I think that might the the greatest thing that could happen to me.     Hey, let’s get to those three things: I will review comic book trades and novels . I call them comic book trades, not graphic novels. None of that pretentious shit here, in my

7/16/2020 - MULHOLLAND DRIVE REVIEW

You can read this review, or watch my video presentation on it, right here: I should warn you, this review is more about my thoughts on David Lynch, and how I felt watching Mulholland Drive than it is about the actual plot of Mulholland Drive .    I knew that when I was going to start viewing and reviewing the movies of David Lynch I would be put into an uncomfortable position.  When I review a piece of media, I focus on the story.  If the story is a mystery, I rate the movie on how consumed I feel when trying to solve that mystery,  and if I think the answer to the mystery was satisfying. Were there clues pointing towards the answer, throughout the entire, comic, novel,TV show or movie? Then there are the questions I ask, regardless of the type of story. Questions like,were the characters well defined and unique? Would I want to spend more time with those characters if I had the chance? Would I want to spend more time in that world, if there was a
