Why go outside with the zombies, sharks and bugs?

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”

Top 5 Unplayed Board Games in My Collection

FACT: People love lists, consistency and alliteration.

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

As you may already know, I’m an avid board-gamer.  It’s probably my favorite hobby.  Unfortunately, being a responsible adult (and gaming with other responsible adults) means that I don’t get to play games nearly as often as I would like.  In fact, I probably spend more time buying board games than actually playing them.  With that in mind, I give you the Top 5 Unplayed Board Games in My Collection.

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”

Sesame Street Parody: Game of Chairs

I remember when I was a young lad working at Barnes & Noble in college, and all of my co-workers were atwitter about this dark new fantasy book: A Game of Thrones. It took me a couple years to buy in, and then I started advocating the series to my friends.

I never imagined what a cultural phenomena it would become. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any bigger, our most beloved childhood icons produced this outstanding parody. Enjoy!
