Foxcatcher Review

Foxcatcher is a meticulously crafted, well researched, and fantastically acted film. That said, I found it to be kind of a dull and ponderous movie, although this is the kind of thing you don’t watch for entertainment as much as for the experience. Steve Carrel plays John DuPont, […]

Rocky Balboa

Rocky Balboa Review

This movie packs the feels. Like I said with the last review of Rocky 5, I find it works best if you skip the third and fourth installments of this series to keep things on an even keel, and for this movie, perhaps just skipping straight from the […]

Rocky 5

Rocky 5 Review

It is not exactly breaking news, that out of all the Rocky movies, this one gets the most flack. In reality, I think with a different release date it might have been much more favorably regarded. This movie attempts the impossible though, as far as bringing a series […]

Rocky 3

Rocky 2

Rocky II Review

Eric travels with Kurt to Thaland to face the dangerous Muay Thai monster known as ‘Tong Po’. Po cripples Eric Sloane, leaving the younger brother hellbent on revenge. Luckily, Mr. Miyagi […]

The Golf Club

The Golf Club Review

Since there have been gaming consoles, there have been golf games for those consoles. While I don’t ever watch golf on TV, I do enjoy playing it (for real on occasions, though it’s been a while since I’ve done it) and on consoles. We’re nearing the one year […]
