Thank you for the kind words. The performances on this show have all been, to a one, phenomenal. The talent on this show is incredible and no actor in any episode has delivered anything short of fantastic work. The problem I’ve had with the series rests almost entirely with the stories. It bums me out, because I was…
That actually compels me to play further!
A year late, I’m finally playing Super Mario Odyssey. As of now, I still think I’m of the mind that Super Mario Galaxy stands at the pinnacle of Mario games, but I don’t want to diminish what an enjoyable time I’m having with the game. Theoretically, I’m splitting my time between this and the obnoxiously titled Horiz…
Naw, no one is too old or too young for Great Pumpkin.
I love the format for this piece.
Unless your kid is already a battle-hardened little horror aficionado, I’m going to have to side with you on this one. I think The Shining would be a terrifying experience at 10, and if I had seen it that early, I’d still be talking about it on pop culture websites today.
A few years ago I was talking to a group of high school students I briefly taught about a piece I did for here on Time Bandits. In retrospect, I’m surprised I was actually surprised none of them had heard of it.
Someone needs to get Mr. Pearce in the know about Field Roast vegetarian frankfurters. Unlike the standard Tofurky hot dog that bubbles and melts into a disconcerting plastic-like skin, these are tasty, have good texture and are also dense as hell. I can eat three Nathan’s hot dogs without blinking, but one of these…
American History X was the film I went and saw for the trailer. Also not a good movie. A clumsy after school special-grade film on racism with graphic curb stomping wasn’t really the afterglow I wanted to experience the trailer through.
I guess you can only expect so much empathy from a man who looks like he was roughly modeled from clay then brought to life by a Rabbi to attack the invaders of Prague.
You misunderstand. I personally liked the film gobs. My joke is that this would be the tweet to prove all the conspiracy theories the more rabid and unreasonable (self described true fans) have about Johnson and his nefarious intent with The Last Jedi.

Yeah! All four of ‘em. I’d love to see Judge Fear.
“Oh, Mawia. Dwedd works so hard.”
I really dug the Dredd movie, but if the show is going to be more of an ensemble thing, I hope they go all in with the black comic weirdness the movie was fairly light on. Uncle Umps, ugly clinics, block wars, Judge Child quests -all the bizarre stuff that’s never made it beyond the comics. Well, at least. 1995's…
Excellent piece, William.
I think Shadowrun is pretty niche, all things considered. And it’s not as though this movie’s similarities are particularly germane to the criticism of what makes this work or not.
