Review: The Meg

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 5

It’s hard to screw up a movie about a giant shark.  Movie-goers are willing to forgo quality acting and writing for some good old-fashioned shark carnage.  Somehow, The Meg failed to deliver even that. Continue reading “Review: The Meg”

Netflix and Chill – Valentine’s Day Edition

It’s February 14th and, depending on where you are in your relationship, you may be forced to put up with the corporate sham that is Valentine’s Day.  Enjoy your overpriced meal at a restaurant whose staff is simply trying to get you in and out the door as quickly as possible; this blog isn’t for you.

No, this blog is for the couples who are comfortable enough with each other to realize that Valentine’s Day isn’t worth the hassle.  So what are you doing tonight?  May I suggest Netflix and Chill? Continue reading “Netflix and Chill – Valentine’s Day Edition”

The Last Jedi: The Force Is Weak With This One

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 6.5

Haha!  Get it?  The force is weak with this one!  Because usually, in Star Wars, they say; “The force is strong with this one.”  But I used WEAK instead!  I read a bunch of Last Jedi reviews and I can’t believe I haven’t seen this brilliantly clever line used yet!  What could that mean?  Either I’m more cleverer than all of the movie review peoples on the internets… or somehow everyone else actually liked this 2.5 hour escapade in mediocrity.

Luckily, Rogue Hippo is here to give you the correct answer.  Let’s review The Last Jedi! Continue reading “The Last Jedi: The Force Is Weak With This One”

Tomb Raider Trailer – A Good Gaming Movie?

Video game movies have a rough  track record. From the awful to the uninspired, franchise after franchise tries to establish itself on the big screen, only to fall into the $5 bargain bin at WalMart.

After one look at the Tomb Raider trailer, I’m convinced that trend is going to change.

The Dark Tower: A Fanboy Review

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 3*

My mother always says, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”  For my mother’s sake, I’ll try to come up with some positive things about The Dark Tower

…ummmm….

…well…

…if you need some stocking-stuffer ideas, I expect this movie will be in your local Walmart’s ‘$5 DVD’ bin by Christmas.  That’s the only positive thing I can think of.  Now, on to the real meat and potatoes… Continue reading “The Dark Tower: A Fanboy Review”

Review: Dunkirk

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 10

Wow!  This movie is incredible!  Go see Dunkirk; and, as a good friend put it, see it “on the biggest screen you can find.”  In fact, reading this review is a poor use of your time that could be better spent watching Dunkirk.  However, since you’re here, I’ll try to do this movie justice.

The Next Netflix Movie You Need To Watch

Netflix has some good shit!

I apologize for being uncouth, but I keep finding new things on Netflix that have me saying, “Damn, this is some good shit!”

Everyone already knows about the high-profile shows and movies so I won’t talk about them.  I’m talking about something that is completely off of the radar… Continue reading “The Next Netflix Movie You Need To Watch”

Review: It Comes at Night

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 7.5

I went to see It Comes at Night on a whim, and I have to say it left me disappointed.  However, the more I think about it, the more I realize how clever it is.  So, let’s break down It Comes at Night! Continue reading “Review: It Comes at Night”

Top 5 Movies That Fueled My Sense of Adventure

FACT: People love lists, consistency and alliteration.

With that in mind, I bring you the third edition of “Top 5 Friday”; a weekly (or bi-weekly, if I’m being honest) list of dork topics, random thoughts and balderdash.

Kids today.  They don’t play outside, they have no imagination, and they can’t stand the thought of being without their smartphones for even a second.  Luckily, Rogue Hippo is here to tell the Millennials exactly what’s wrong with them… Continue reading “Top 5 Movies That Fueled My Sense of Adventure”
