Top 5 Stand-Up Comedians

I’ve been slacking lately with Top 5 Friday blogs… a thousand apologies, loyal readers!

Today I decided to mix it up and discuss my Top 5 stand-up comedians.  Comedy is an under-appreciated art, in my opinion.  A musical group can write a 3-minute song and get rich.  A stand-up comedian has to write 15, 30 or 60 minutes worth of jokes and perform in front of a drunken audience who won’t hesitate to start heckling if they aren’t impressed.  I’m not saying creating music is easy, but a 1988 Casio keyboard can come up with a good beat.  Yet there still isn’t a computer on on the planet that can tell a good joke.  With that in mind, it’s time to appreciate this under-appreciated art with…

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”

Review: Thor Ragnarok

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 8

I have an internet connection, and I saw Thor: Ragnarok over the weekend, which makes me more than qualified to write a review (spoiler-free as usual).

Full Disclosure: I would never call myself a Thor fan.  I thought the previous movies were mediocre, I’ve never read any Thor comic books, and I’ve always viewed Thor as simply a walking stoic-warrior stereotype.

So, with all the being said, I thought Thor: Ragnarok was fucking…  Continue reading “Review: Thor Ragnarok”

Watch The Bad Batch on Netflix

FACT: I’m probably the world’s leading authority on Netflix shows.  There’s no debating that.

As the reigning King of Netflix, I now decree that you watch The Bad Batch.  It needs to happen.  I’m not even going to try to write a review of The Bad Batch because words cannot begin to accurately describe this movie.  Instead, I’m going to do try something new that I call Picture Movie Math; in which I attempt to describe with pictures, that which cannot be described with words.  Let’s begin… Continue reading “Watch The Bad Batch on Netflix”

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”
