  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Solo: A Star Wars Story


    Within the seemingly endless expanse that is the Star Wars universe, there’s easily a 100 different stories you could tell that have the potential to be far more interesting, and involving and exciting and entertaining than anything thus far found in the franchise.

    The Karate Kid, Part III


    Ten years ago, nuclear was the preferred waste. You could dump it anywhere! Now...everybody's a detective!

    I absolutely love The Karate Kid Part III. I know you don't, but you should.

    Why should you love it? Well, there's a lot of reasons, but most of them just boil down to 3 words:

    Terry Fucking Silver.

    Where the fuck did he come from? He feels like he's plugged in from some bizarro, unmade Bond film - so unapologetically villainous, so cartoonishly…
