The Review: The Defiant Ones


The Defiant Ones 10/10

Perfect! I watched the documentary The Defiant Ones on HBO Now (which is a great app but set up terribly) and loved every damned hour of it. It is set up in four parts chronicling the lives and careers and how they crossed paths of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. Also proud that I now know how to pronounce the name Iovine and what the hell a music producer even does. Before watching I thought they were just kinda names attached to things that don't really do anything but lend their famous names. This starts off at the end and works its way back around in such a clever way that I didn't get annoyed that the story switched up.

My Song Of The Week: That's What You Get


A few days ago I decided to try making a dance song. Some long ass song where the beat is loud and changes up. Then I found a clip from a song that fit and ended up adding a few more. I ended up adding The Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, and Bon Jovi. Its weird but I like it. Click here for previous My Song Of The Week.

Theater Whore: Atomic Blonde


Atomic Blonde 1/10

There will be some spoilers. I was so excited to see this movie based off of the trailers and finally got my chance today. Atomic Blonde is a dumpster fire. If you wanna see Charlize Theron punching people, shooting people, stabbing people, and getting her ass kicked then you'll love this movie. It takes place in 1989 aka the 80's which I was not aware of. That means that every single fucking scene has a new song that starts playing. It was cool for two songs but by the end you start hearing different versions of the same songs being played. It wasn't cool. Speaking of which, this entire movie seems to scream “Isn't this shot cool?! Look at that lighting! Oh, did you see that?! Wasn't that cool looking?! Everything looks so cool!”

The Review: Star Wars Rogue One


Star Wars Rogue One 2/10

I did not enjoy this movie. Full disclosure and as some of you may know, I did not grow up watching Star Wars. Knew what it was, had some toys, but did not see the movies until I was older and watched them in in order of Episode 1 through Episode 6 which Star Wars fans say you should never do. Too late. I did it. I was also confused waiting for that Black Storm Trooper to show up and then realized that I was watching the wrong movie. Either way I was already in and forcing myself to finish this one. I won't bother listing who is in it or anything like that because I don't feel like it. The basic premise is a girl's father helped create the Death Star, he leaves, her mom dies, she is abandoned by someone that was supposed to take care of her, she is arrested, she is forced to care about the war, she joins the war and helps them win.

My Song Of The Week: Skin Tight Jeans


Tonight I did a remix of Katy Perry's Teenage Dream titled Skin Tight Jeans. I'm not a huge fan of her but I'll be damned if she doesn't stay on tempo perfectly. Click here for previous My Song Of The Week.

Theater Whore: Baby Driver


Baby Driver 10/10

If I rated movies higher than 10 Baby Driver would have been the first to get it. I fucking loved this movie. I decided to check this out today because I was just sitting here and was gonna dick around when I remembered that I had wanted to see this in theaters. I figured that I'd like this because I like Edgar Wright's previous movies but I had no idea that I would not want this movie to end and want to see it again as soon as it was over.

The Review: Black Mirror Season Two


Black Mirror Season Two 9/10

I swear, this show Black Mirror managed to jack me up every single episode. Just when I thought I knew where the story was going I would not only be wrong, but wrong and left feeling like an asshole. There are some episodes in particular that made me feel stupid for feeling a certain way the entire episode until the last ten minutes. This season had three episodes just like the first as well as a bonus Christmas episode that I'll include. I am so glad these are all on Netflix. From talking to folks that are afraid to watch this show its because of that pig episode in the first season. Come on, people. That is the very first episode of the first season. They ain't all that bad. I mean, it was a crazy good episode but fucked up. There will be some spoilers, you babies.

Theater Whore: Spider-Man Homecoming


Spider-Man Homecoming 9 ½/10

Oh, I had all of the fun watching Spider-Man Homecoming! There will be some spoilers in this. I'm not gonna review this like I do other movies and cover it completely or anything. This movie is everything that as a fan of Tom Holland in Civil War and rated Holland as the best Spider-Man that I wanted. He was nerdy, he lacked confidence, had a great support group, and wasn't hated by everyone. This movie also had a really good supporting cast. It wasn't just about Spider-Man struggling with his powers and being hated by everyone in the city. He was an actual friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man which is something all other five films failed to do. People would see him and get hype and then ask him to do tricks. It also showed that crime is not always happening and sometimes there isn't even when Spider-Man thinks there is.

The Review: Castlevania


Castlevania 8/10

I decided to take a break from watching the second season of Black Mirror and feeling weird an check out the new Netflix Castlevania series. I played the video game back in the 80's but I'm not married to it and didn't follow it throughout its many incantations. I say this to point out that I have no idea where the story went so I'm not upset whether or not this one stays true to whatever happened in the games. This starts with this lady finding Dracula and trying to convince him to learn more about humanity and he'll teach her science. It works but backfires when the church burns her ass at the stake. Dracula finds out and he is like “Fuck everything!” and gives folks a year to make peace with their god before he returns and kills them all. He does. Its violent as fuck.

The Review: Okja


Okja 10/10

There will be a lot of spoilers in this. I need to stop saying that and just say don't read movies reviews until after you've watched shit if you are worried about it being ruined. I gave it a 10/10. Watch it. I loved this fucking movie! Okay, I had no idea what this movie was about before I started watching it. Coworker said she could not watch it because of it making you not want to eat meat anymore to which I responded watching Super Size Me and wanting McDonald's and eating a burger while watching Food Inc. You can't stop me from eating meat. I saw a big pig with a city on its back with a little girl and the title Okja. That was the extent of my knowledge of this movie. I was excited to watch it and not even sure why but I am so glad that I did.

The Review: American Gods Episode 8 "Come To Jesus"


American Gods Episode 8 “Come To Jesus”/Season 1 Review 9/10

I am late writing this, I know. This is going to be a review of the final episode of season one of American Gods as well as the entire season. Some of you may be confused as to why I gave this season a 9 out of 10 considering I was all over this show like a cheap suit. Well, it was because of the seventh episode which was hot garbage and had about four seconds of footage that was relevant to anything. In a show that features only eight episodes you can not afford to have one that useless.

Episode eight starts off finally showing the story of Bilquis' fine ass and how she rolled before shoving men and women into her vajayjay in hotel rooms. Oh, this is told by Anansi by the way who I like even more after reading Neil Gaiman's “Anansi Boys.” He is talking to Mr. Wednesday and Shadow. Bilquis, the Queen of Sheba, is running shit back in the day and having cuddle puddles with dozens of men and women. Guys try to step up and bone her and she is all like “Bring it.” They do and then an eclipse happens and the next thing you know they all get melted and sucked into her lady parts. Its wild.

The Review: American Gods Episode 7 "A Prayer For Mad Sweeney"


American Gods “A Prayer For Mad Sweeney”

Wow. After six incredible episodes American Gods finally put out an episode that was not just uninteresting, but bad. “A Prayer For Mad Sweeney” was one of the most uninteresting hours of television I've seen in a while which sucks because it seemed to begin as if it were going to be pretty awesome by showing the work of Ibis an Jacquel. But no. It starts off with them working in the morgue and then switches to this long boring ass story about some woman in Ireland named Essie McGowan in the past that is played by Emily Browning.
