  1. The Martian was awesome. I had a big smile on my face during the whole movie. It’s really about hope and perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds. Pretty wonderful. Best moment was ” going Ironman”. We have superhero references in non superhero movies.. What a world we’re living in.

  2. Man, Pat wasn’t kidding about “Sicario”. Great movie. Way better than that crap “Apocalypse Now” “I hate the sound of weird, dark overrated movies at any time of the day”.. I’m also talking to you “Deer Hunter” and you “Raging Bull”. The Deer Hunter and the Raging Bull should play Russian roulette with Apocalypse Now. Anyway, man, “Sicario”. What great camera work. What great acting. What great music.
    Hey, I’m a genius. I know how to stop Sicario. LEGALIZE ALL DRUGS! Put the cartels out of business and stop the CIA from bankrolling sick covert ops (like they already have been doing with drug sales to Americans). Patriots?!?

    1. Glad you liked it. It’s hard to imagine the feature image above being any more badass but once you see the movie, it becomes about a hundred times cooler. Yeah, acting & camera work is stunning. Everything Benicio Del Toro does in the film is master class in subtlety. Also gets the the best lines “This will sound strange to your American ears…..this is a land of wolves now” ect

      1. Ya, Del Toro was impressive. Everyone seemed to raise their game. These may have been the best performances I’ve seen out of Blunt and Brolin as well. That is a credit to the director.

        Some great lines, ya. Nothing seemed forced. I was almost upset it was over so quick. They edited everything down to really essential stuff pretty masterfully. Definitely the True Detective Season 2 we deserved? Desired!

  3. Thank you guys for continuing to cover these harassment scandals here. As someone who isn’t on twitter or other social media, these collections of articles have been a valuable resource for me.
