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.

Review: Spider-Man Homecoming

Tom Awesome’s Review Score: 8.5

I am an unabashed Spider-Fan. I own no fewer than six Spidey shirts, and at last count I have 23 collections of Peter Parker’s finest tales – not including any of the exclusive Venom sets. I had reservations going into Spider-Man Homecoming, and I am pleased to report that it was pretty good.

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”

Wonder Woman Review

Wonder Woman

Tom Awesome’s Review Score: 9

What would happen if you paired a noble Amazon with a thief, a criminal and a murderer and tasked them with saving the world? It may sound like a Final Fantasy storyline, but with stars like Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, Wonder Woman is an epic adventure that you should see on the largest screen possible.

Alien Covenant: A Fanboy Review

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 7.5

It’s difficult for me to type that…

7.5

I wanted so much more…

OK, enough moping.  It’s time to review Alien: Covenant… Continue reading “Alien Covenant: A Fanboy Review”

The Great Indoors, The Complete Series, Review

Tom Awesome’s Review Score: 9.75

CBS launched a terrifically funny show this year, and cancelled it after a single outstanding season. No, it’s not Man With a Plan or Kevin Can Wait starring a former Friends standout and Kevin James respectively. It’s not even Superior Donuts, starring whoever the hell is in that show. No, it’s my beloved The Great Indoors, starring Joel McHale. It’s the biggest traveshamockery since the untimely demise of Better Off Ted.

Review: Life is Strange

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 9

I’m an old-school gamer with limited time for video games.  When I do find some time, I prefer NES games, SNES games and 10-20 year old strategy/rpg games.  So when I can’t stop playing a new(ish), story-driven game about a Continue reading “Review: Life is Strange”

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…
