  @Dan there's some horror flicks on here, albeit ones I've probably already mentioned to you. My cream of the crop, I guess.   @Taylor no guarantees on if you would personally like them, but if you're still interested in seeking out some movies in general I obviously love all these.   @Daenerys I would guess you'd have LLL higher up, but bear in mind that it's still in the top 1.5% of all movies I've ever seen     @Coca-Cola @Juinae @LittleDudeNT5 because why not      
 

My Blu-ray collection

I love collecting these sort of media items and of course discussing the items themselves. Do you have any of the same titles, and which ones interest you the most? Really, I'd be interested in hearing any general thoughts. - An arrow indicates that the films are sold in a set to explain what seems like an alphabetizing error. -   10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

My 2017 in photos

I started off the year by finally getting my driver's license after many years of just having a learner's.     Film enthusiast that I am, I unfortunately didn't watch as many movies in general as I usually do, but I did reach the milestone of seeing more films than ever theatrically.     Commemorating one of two of them...     I went to the amusement park, which was fun considering I hadn't been in a while. I went on many rides varying from rollercoasters, rings of fire, swing towers and anti-gravity machines, but obviously it's kinda hard to flip out your phone on those ones. I did manage to take some from the ferris wheel.     And in the funhouse.     Where talent was appreciated.     I finally had to get glasses.     I went bowling while my aunt and uncle were visiting, which I apparently suck shit at (less than 100...). They happened to be playing The Killers "All These Things That I've Done" at this alley, so I took the opportunity to sing a charming parody that goes "I can't bowl, so I'm not a bowler". Weird Al, hit me up.     I went down to the forests of Ontario, where I apparently ran a relatively high risk of being burned alive.     I had to get two wisdom teeth removed, one of which was literally sideways.     My action figure collection grew.     Especially when I went to Comic-Con, where I got to meet Jay Baruchel.     And go back to the future.     As I was driving more often, I got to see this charming pro-life ad ever more often, with its inexplicably funny-looking baby. I mean, c'mon, guys - millions of cute babies in this world and you land on this little dude?     I also got into my first ever car accident, which was particularly odd in that our vehicles literally got stuck together. Thankfully, no one was hurt.     Eventually, her husband showed up and got us unstuck. I immortalised my reaction by taking a picture as soon as I got to work. Behold, the face of "I'm about to part with some serious coin".     I also took up cooking as a hobby, learning to make various things throughout the year.     My 2018 new year's resolution? Take more pictures!   Hope you all have a happy new year

What I bought at Comic-Con

Doctor Strange and Mr. Fantastic (these are somewhat old and you can't take them out of the box without cutting it open, so I won't be doing so)     The Shadow (debated getting the regular version or the Lamont Cranston/Alec Baldwin one that turns into the Shadow, landed on the former). Again, not gonna open it.     Batman (1989) blast shield (action figure included) and Batwing, still boxed.     Movie-based Dick Tracy toys that I had wanted for a really long time, and was lucky to find for very cheap (Dick Tracy, Big Boy Caprice, Flattop).     And this doll.     Ultimate Thor and AoU Hulk.     Black Widow and Lady Deathstrike.     And the Penguin.

My Top 10 TV series that lasted only one season

Some of these are better known than others, and two specifically have a lot of martyrdom attached to them due to being cancelled so early on, but ultimately I think still deserve a lot of acclaim.   10. Garfunkel and Oates     This one was more quietly removed and I don't think it really garnered much of a fanbase, but it's an amusing if somewhat uneven show with some very offbeat, non-generic comedy.   Favorite episode: Maturity   9. Clerks: The Animated Series     An obviously toned down but still adult cartoon, fans of either of the Clerks movies should still appreciate this show for its pop culture wit.   Favorite episode: A Dissertation on the American Justice System by People Who Have Never Been Inside a Courtroom, Let Alone Know Anything About the Law, But Have Seen Way Too Many Legal Thrillers    8. The Grinder     A pretty clever comedy with a nice cast, I was really sorry to see this one go, as it's the only show on my list that I actually watched throughout its original run.   Favorite episode: Grinder Rests in Peace   7. My So-Called Life     A great teen drama with some cast member that that really rose to fame later, you really get invested in these characters despite its short run. Skip the Christmas episode though...   Favorite episode: Why Jordan Can't Read   6. The Lone Gunmen     A far lighter spin-off of The X-Files more focused on comedic conspiracy plots, I got a lot of enjoyment of this one, and in addition to really liking the development of the LG themselves I also really like the new characters, Jimmy Bond and Yves Adele Harlow.   Favorite episode: Like Water for Octane   5. Freaks and Geeks     OK, so this is one of the two "obvious" shows I mentioned, but I really think it deserves its acclaim. I love the cast, Linda Cardellini and Martin Starr especially, and my only real criticism is a general lack of likeability regarding the adult characters, with the exception of Thomas F. Wilson as the gym teacher.    Favorite episode: Chokin' and Tokin'    4. Kolchak: The Night Stalker     Fantastic precursor to the The X-Files, and I love McGavin's portrayal of the titular character.   Favorite episode: Demon in Lace   3. Firefly     Aaaand this would be the other obvious one. Coming from the creator of two other acclaimed TV series that were on and the time (and whose fanbase has only grown since then with The Avengers and such), this show probably more than any other is infamous for getting screwed by the network and as a result was pulled pretty quick despite its acclaim. Still, it is a great series with a wonderful cast and characters, and a somewhat unusal western-esque idea of spacefaring sci-fi with no aliens.   Favorite episode: Out of Gas   2. The Flash     I enjoy this infinitely more than the current CW series with Grant Gustin. I love its escapist, adventurous vibe, and anybody who likes Tim Burton's Batman movies should do themselves a favour and check this out.     Favorite episode: Pilot   1. That's My Bush!     From the creators of South Park (another one of my favorite shows), this show is just brilliant. People expected this to be more of a political satire than it was for obvious reasons, when was it really was was a spoof of hackneyed sitcoms from the 80s and 90s complete with a cheesy theme song, incessant canned laughter with regular "OOOH"s from the "studio audience", a sassy maid, a wacky neighbor and the works. Each episode combines some typical sitcom plot (impressing your mother-in-law, going to two engagements on the same night, your old frat brothers visiting) with some hot button issue (abortion, gun control, the War on Drugs) and downplaying much political commentary, with more moderate views being expressed in a parody of those awful "discussing the episode's plot before bed" scenes in The Brady Bunch.    Favorite episode: An Aborted Dinner Date       @TattooedHeart @Coca-Cola

My Top 15 Time Travel Films

This is one of my favourite sub-genres in science fiction (though not every film here counts as sci-fi), so I'm also gonna add an "honourable mention" list as they very end just so the primary one isn't ridiculously long. Also, I won't count more than one film from the same series.   15. 14. 13. 12. 11. 10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.    And my honourable mentions:   Back to the Future Part II Back to the Future Part III Escape from the Planet of the Apes Looper Men in Black 3 Peggy Sue Got Married Planet of the Apes (2001) - yeah I said it Star Trek (2009) Star Trek: First Contact Terminator 2: Judgment Day Timecop Warlock

My Top 20 Biopics

Most/all of these films take some artistic license with the real people they're based on, but I will set some limits. I'm not going to count anything here like Amadeus or Quills (both great movies) that are less biopics and more just fiction loosely based on real historical figures.   And yeah, I'm a whore for Warren Beatty.   20. Schindler's List 19. Quiz Show 18. Catch Me If You Can 17. Raging Bull 16. Tombstone 15. The Social Network 14. Born on the Fourth of July   13. La Bamba 12. Lawrence of Arabia 11. Man on the Moon 10. Wild 9. The Walk 8. Bugsy 7. Straight Outta Compton 6. Reds 5. Walk the Line 4. The Wolf of Wall Street 3. Bonnie and Clyde 2. Private Parts 1. Ed Wood   And a few honorable mentions:   I Love You Phillip Morris Ali Sid & Nancy Great Balls of Fire! The People vs. Larry Flynt Rudy 42 The Doors

"Cool" character names in movies

Most of these range from improbable to ridiculous... I could probably fill this list with Sly alone!   Sylvester Stallone  - Jerry Savage (Rebel) - Johnny Kovak (F.I.S.T) - Deke DaSilva (Nighthawks) - Robert Hatch (Victory) - Lincoln Hawk (Over the Top) - Raymond Tango (Tango & Cash) - John Spartan (Demolition Man) - Ray Quick (The Specialist) - Robert Rath (Assassins)   Seagal has some doozies as well...   Steven Seagal  - Mason Storm (Hard to Kill) - John Hatcher (Marked for Death) - Casey Ryback (Under Siege) - Austin Travis (Executive Decision) - Jack Cole (The Glimmer Man) - Jack Taggart (Fire Down Below)  - Jonathan Cold (The Foreigner)   And you can't forget their action star contemporaries that picked normal names slightly more often...   Arnold Schwarzenegger - John Matrix (Commando) - Jack Slater (Last Action Hero) - Harry Tasker (True Lies)   Mel Gibson - Mad Max Rockatansky (Mad Max) - Martin Riggs (Lethal Weapon) - Bret Maverick (Maverick) - Porter [no first name...I wouldn't mess with this motherfucker] (Payback)    Jean-Claude Van Damme - Frank Dux (Bloodsport) - Gibson Rickenbacker (Cyborg) - Darren McCord (Sudden Death)   Plus nearly the entire cast of Michael Bay's Armageddon:   - Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis) - A:J. Frost (Ben Affleck) - Chick Chapple (Will Patton) - Rockhound (Steve Buscemi) - Oscar Choice (Owen Wilson) - Willie Sharp (William Fichtner)   The late 90s/early 2000s blockbuster king formerly known as the Fresh Prince has a couple:   Will Smith - Raymond Clayton Dean [three names, that's almost more badass than one!) (Enemy of the State) - Cypher Raige (After Earth)   John Travolta (Deak Deakins) and Christian Slater (Riley Hale) are also pretty hardcore in Broken Arrow. And the also iconic John Shaft.   Probably a few that I missed

My visit to the amusement park

I hadn't gone to one of these since I was about 15, so when I heard they were putting on one for ten days in my local city (with better rides than I was used to as well, my previous city didn't really get the full treatment), I was pretty excited. I had it in my head that I was gonna try all the badass shit that I was too much of a pussy to go on as a kid, and...I sorta did.   The first thing I tried was one of two rollercoasters that were there, and this line took fucking forever. As the wait is coming to an end I ask the two 11/12 year old girls in front of me if all the lines are this long and fortunately they tell me that's not the case. They also begin to recommend to me all of the most hardcore rides, but just by name so it didn't mean as much at the time. Later when I actually saw them, I was sorta impressed. I mean, two little girls went on this thing that went about four in the air, spinned and turned completely upside down. Is that not some majorly fucked up shit?   I was worried I was gonna lose my cool at last minute when the rollercoaster actually began (with the two 11 year old girls, mind you...), but I held it together pretty good. Just sorted gritted my teeth a bit. After this I went on probably the worst/scariest ride that I did, the Ring of Fire:     On this one, I did scream. A lot. I also had my eyes shut like a steel fucking trap about 99% of the time. You probably couldn't have made me open them unless you put some Clockwork Orange shit on me beforehand.     After that, I went on the nice, serene, no-screams ferris wheel.     I was still not completely over the Ring of Fire, so I kept up with the lower key rides for a little while  I was pretty disappointed with the haunted house, they had this werewolf that looked a matted bear. But then I went to the "Video Box" or something, and although it wasn't all that great, I saw this. Stan.     Went to the funhouse as well, seeing a deformed version of yourself is always enjoyable.     I finally started going on the real, non-pussy rides again, starting with the Swing Tower. But there happened to be two different little girls (maybe 15) who weren't even holding the safety bars  I of course gripped them for dear life.     And then probably my favorite ride, the Starship 4000. The gravity effect is really cool, went on this one a few times. Also once they were playing Poker Face. Stan again.     There were a few others in between that I don't quite recall, but the final ride I went on was the Crazy Mouse - another rollercoaster, but one that spins while you're on it. As I was a loner and they like to have so many people on certain rides, they put on this carny named Willem with me, who says this is gonna be a "VIP" ride. I had no idea what he meant, but it turned out their definition of VIP was "have two carnies spin around the rollercoaster like mad before it even starts so it spins even fucking crazier the whole time".     I tried to psyche myself up to go on the Drop of Doom, but nah, the suspense of that thing is just too fucked up

My Top 20 Animated TV Series

I'd specifically avoided naming animated TV series in my other blog entries, so here's me making up for it. I'm counting any kind of animation here - traditional, CGI, stop-motion, whatever. Also counting everything from cartoons with a child target audience to super raunchy, adults-only cartoons, and I'm counting every genre.   20. Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law (2000-2007) 19. Clerks: The Animated Series (2000-2001) 18. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987-1996) 17. Animaniacs (1993-1998) 16. Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated (2010-2013) 15. Justice League (2001-2004) 14. Gargoyles (1994-1996) 13. Aaahh!!! Real Monsters (1994-1997) 12. Kim Possible (2002-2007) 11. Beetlejuice (1989-1991) 10. The Critic (1994-1995) 9. South Park (1997-present) 8. Dilbert (1999-2000) 7. Futurama (1999-2003, 2007-2013) 6. Rick and Morty (2013-present) 5. The Simpsons (1989-present sadly) 4. Robot Chicken (2005-present) 3. Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995) 2. Archer (2009-present) 1. Daria (1997-2002)

My Favorite Lesser-Known Space Opera Films

For every Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avatar, there's a space opera flick that didn't receive a fraction of the attention of those films. Some of these are inspired by those films, other are blatants knock-offs. Some of these are good, some bad, some inbetween - but all are entertaining!     My criteria: - I'm not counting anything like Dune or John Carter (both films that I like) that in spite of being flops are such notorious flops that they're still pretty well known. - Just movies, not counting shows like Farscape or ShadowRaiders.     Barbarella, an astronaut from the 41st century, sets out to find and stop the evil scientist Durand Durand, whose Positronic Ray threatens to bring evil back into the galaxy.   This movie is just endlessly entertaining to me, and for a fun fact it's where Duran Duran (one of my favorite bands) got their name from.     A young farmer sets out to recruit mercenaries to defend his peaceful planet, which is under threat of invasion by the evil tyrant Sador and his armada of aggressors.   Notice that the ship is intentionally designed to look like a pair of tits...and it was designed by James Cameron!     A young man learns that he has to find a hidden Earth ship before an enemy alien species does in order to secure the survival of humanity.   I think the blend of CGI and traditional animation is pretty cool, and it really highlights just how alien the Drej are.      A young woman discovers her destiny as an heiress of intergalactic nobility and must fight to protect the inhabitants of Earth from an ancient and destructive industry.   Wolfman Channing Tatum clad in rocket boots fights a dragonman on the planet Jupiter. That alone makes this film great.     A video game expert Alex Rogan finds himself transported to another planet after conquering The Last Starfighter video game only to find out it was just a test. He was recruited to join the team of best starfighters to defend their world from the attack.   A bit silly on the whole, but still a good time. Interesting for its (clunky) early uses of CGI.   ...and that's all for now! Can't wait for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets to (maybe) be awesome and (certainly) flop hard at the box office!

My Top 5 Most Hated/Least Favorite Villains

I'm not naming any villains who were kind of bland or generic (Walter Donovan, Malekith) but weren't really a major presence in their respective films or villains that are simply too funny for me to hate (Mr. Freeze). All the ones listed are poorly acted, poorly written characters who definitely drag the films they're in down.     Walker (Stuart Wilson) - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III     Dr. Claw (Rupert Everett) - Inspector Gadget   
Serleena (Lara Flynn Boyle) - Men in Black II     You know what? All of them. Just fucking all of them in the world's most pathetic three-way-tie (Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti) - The Amazing Spider-Man 2     The Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) - Suicide Squad

80 Bashed Movies That I Dig

The films that I picked for this list all either have less than an average rating of 6.0 on IMDb or less than 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, and in many cases, both. Personally though, I'd rate all of them at least a solid 7 and many of them even higher for various reasons. I'm not gonna game anything like slasher series (unless it's a reviled entry I happen to like), Transformers or Batman v Superman which are all fairly popular really despite being disliked by critics and would have a significant amount of vocal defenders among the general public, just to make this more interesting. And although I already mentioned that a low rating on either IMDb or RT would qualify it for this list, I'm not gonna name anything where there's a noticeably huge difference between the two ratings on each site for some reason, because some films can just be polarizing more than anything.   Barbarella (1968) It's Alive (1974) Zardoz (1974) The Black Hole (1979) Alligator (1980) Shock Treatment (1981) Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983) A View to a Kill (1985) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) Harry and the Hendersons (1987) Ishtar (1987) Mannequin (1987) Masters of the Universe (1987) Who's That Girl (1987) Earth Girls Are Easy (1988) Ernest Saves Christmas (1988) Fright Night Part 2 (1988) Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) The Karate Kid Part III (1989) Leviathan (1989) She-Devil (1989) Shocker (1989) Bird on a Wire (1990) RoboCop 2 (1990) The Rookie (1990) Delirious (1991) Hudson Hawk (1991) Captain Ron (1992) Cool World (1992) Super Mario Bros.

(2000) The Ladies Man (2000) Mission to Mars (2000) What Planet Are You From? (2000) Corky Romano (2001) Down to Earth (2001) Josie and the Pussycats (2001) Monkeybone (2001) Planet of the Apes (2001) Thir13en Ghosts (2001) Town & Country (2001) Big Fat Liar (2002) Undercover Brother (2002) Hulk (2003) What a Girl Wants (2003) AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004) Without a Paddle (2004) Southland Tales (2006) Land of the Lost (2009) Spring Breakers (2012) V/H/S (2012) The Lone Ranger (2013) Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) Unfriended (2014) Hell and Back (2015) Jupiter Ascending (2015)   Thoughts? What are some not-so-acclaimed movies that you enjoy quite a bit?

My Top 10 Favorite TV Characters

Just to help narrow this down, I'm excluding the following from this list:   - Animated characters (otherwise I assure you Daria Morgendorffer, Sterling Archer and Homer Simpson would surely be here, and maybe some others like Rick and Morty too) - Anyone from a show that is strongly adapted from a well known, pre-existing source material, so no superhero shows will be included here or anything like Ash vs. Evil Dead that is a televised continuation of a film series. I'm being more lenient with shows that are considerably different from their source material or are based on one that wasn't very well known up until the show began. - Characters from a miniseries. - Any more than two characters from the same series.   And without further ado...   10. Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) - Gilmore Girls Good god was I impressed with how fast this chick could talk. I knew I would miss her the second the series finale was over, but I've still got A Year in the Life!   9. Spike (James Marsters) - Buffy the Vampire Slayer He has one of the most surprising and interesting arcs of any character I can think of. He went from being a supporting guest villain in the second season to appearing years later as Buffy's main love interest. Through the good and the bad, he did change a lot throughout the series in various way, and I dig his sense of humor.   8. George Costanza (Jason Alexander) - Seinfeld   Short, stocky, bald and a born loser.   6 & 7. Tim Bisley (Simon Pegg) and Daisy Steiner (Jessica Stevenson) - Spaced This is one of the most cleverly written TV shows of all time. The writers of The Big Bang Theory ought to hang their heads in shame.   5. Luke Danes (Scott Patterson) - Gilmore Girls This guy just fucking kills me. Yeah, I love Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, but I actually appreciate his more toned down pop culture references and his frustrating interactions with the townspeople slightly more.   4. Gob Bluth (Will Arnett) - Arrested Development He's made a huge mistake.   3. John Crichton (Ben Browder) - Farscape A pop culture loving Earthling who finds himself way the hell out in the universe in a space opera setting? Any fans of Guardians of the Galaxy should do themselves a favor and check out this awesome series.   2. Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) - Buffy the Vampire Slayer   I'm probably something of a minority in that Buffy is my clear, no contest favorite character of the series. It seems that out of the show's many fans, most will pick a supporting character, but I simply love her Gellar's portrayal and her development throughout the series   1. Dennis Reynolds (Glenn Howerton) - It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia The legend, THE GOLDEN GOD. Also a severely narcissistic sociopath.   Runner-ups/honorable mentions:   Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) - Arrested Development Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) - Brooklyn Nine-Nine Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom) - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Larry David (Larry David) - Curb Your Enthusiasm Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black) - Farscape Walter Bishop (John Noble) - Fringe entire main cast - It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Ben Linus (Michael Emerson) - Lost Al Bundy (Ed O'Neill) - Married...with Children Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill) - Modern Family Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) - Modern Family Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) - The Office U.S. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) - Star Trek: The Next Generation  Data (Brent Spiner) - Star Trek: The Next Generation  Louie De Palma (Danny DeVito) - Taxi Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) - Veronica Mars

Why I do not look at comments sections anymore (and I suggest you stop too)

I realize I have said this more than once over the past couple of days, but allow me to try and persuade you all one last time - do not look at comment sections anymore.   I don't mean literally all of them - there's probably no harm in checking out the comments under some obscure website or blog that you follow, but any major site like YouTube, Facebook, TMZ, DailyMail or IMDb is bound to have a shitty comment section.   This is largely because of the fact that comment sections are not really meant for serious discussion - that's what forums are for. I have seldom seen two people engage in an intelligent, rational discussion on any of those sites - if two people have replied to each other multiple times, it's usually some childish bitchfest.   It barely even matters if it's a comment section where you're anonymous or not either. Give a man a mask, and he'll show you his true face - if it is a site based in anonymity, people will have no fear and say the reprehensible, inflammatory things they don't have the balls to say in real life, and if it's a site linked to your real identity...well, a lot of people will still say horrible shit, but now that your appearance, job and location are on the table, some ad hominem attacks will be thrown in for good measure. Just to be clear, I'm not talking about any specific groups of people here - there's something about this method of communication that brings out the worst in people in general.   Seriously, just give it a shot for a while and see how you feel. I think it'll only do good for any given person. And I'm also probably not gonna post anything serious in my blog in the foreseeable future so the four people that read it when they're bored need not worry.
