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”

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”

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 7.5

It’s difficult for me to type that…

I wanted so much more…

Opinion: I Suck at Dark Souls

It’s been 18 grueling hours. I’ve stopped playing for six or more months….twice. And now, finally, I realize that this game is actually fun.

The Most Underrated Show on Netflix

I almost titled this ‘The Best Show on Netflix’; and while I could make that argument, my goal is not to argue with you.  My goal is to bring some much-deserved attention to an incredibly smart and well-done Netflix series.  The show I’m talking about is…
