Instead they dropped the ugly ass production Compass on us as their departure from off-road ready to barely on-road ready.

THIS.  She was the low point of the series, not because she was poorly performed or conceived, but because she’s just a fucking awful person for the most part.  Every time she was on screen I wanted to punch her, and it made me enjoy any scene that included her less.  The show will be less enjoyable to me with her in Read more

Can we please stop trotting out these lead acid turds and proclaiming them “ahead of their time?”

The list above is box office in the year 1980, whereas yours is box office for movies released in 1980, which is what I think Tom uses, and it makes more sense, otherwise you miss big holiday releases like 9 to 5 was, and this is a run-on sentence.

The more I hear about Virginia, the less I ever want to spend a single second in that state. With all due respect, what the hell were you thinking driving even a single MPH over the limit there?

The other day there were four bikes in my apartment and one of them was in full working order. My kitchen was full of disassembled brake parts earlier today.

I have a Schwinn Traveler III (maybe it’s a II, I don’t give a shit about bikes) that I got for cheap and never really rode. It has sticky derailleurs so I don’t use it. I listed it on Marketplace for $50. This was six months ago. A while back a guy messaged and said he bought one in worse shape for $500. Okay? Then Read more

I cannot believe a 30 years old touring bike still got sold for $220 USD in 2020. Read more

Anyway, if this is your dildo, it has a new owner now.

Yeah, but the Luke Scream when he steps off the platform rather than surrender to Vader undercuts the whole point of the scene. And, as mentioned above, they change the badass “Bring my shuttle” scene.

Blues Brothers captures a grimy, gritty downtown Chicago that doesn’t really exist anymore, and hasn’t really existed since the early 90s. The old SROs are almost all condos and Pret a Mangers now.

The Blues Brothers deserves a bigger mention. One of the most expensive comedies ever made. R&B legends in their prime. A loving yet massively destructive portrait of old Chicago. Classic set piece after classic set piece with the confidence to play the comedy straight. A glorious farewell shot of 70's pre-blockbuster

Here’s to spending every grade school winter recess leaning against the snow piles built up by the plows clearing the playground, pretending to shoot probe droids out of the sky.

As successful as Star Wars was, I still don’t think Star Wars would be the cultural phenomenon it became if it hadn’t been for Empire. Empire just raised the bar on everything and so effectively moved the story ahead. And remarkably, every Star Wars movie since has been a disappointment. But we all keep going because Read more

I sincerely believe that Airplane! is the best comedy movie that has ever been made.

The viewer has to accept this as unabashed silliness, Mad Magazine-style, or there’s no point in watching it.

Yoda: 40 years later I am sitting in my classroom with Yoda inspirational posters on every wall. Yoda is a cultural force. I saw this movie when I was 11 and it was fantastic.
