Are witches really a thing? Call me crazy but when I hear “witches” the first thought that comes to mind is the Wizard of Oz or Cinderella. That’s right, girls stuff. Not to sound too un-PC, but that’s not cool (no offense, of course). I mean, at least it shouldn’t be cool for man’s man Vin […]Read more "Why Would I Watch This Crap? – The Last Witch Hunter"
No way I’m getting suckered into this one. You’ve gotta be nervous when the ad campaign visually tries to sell a movie like some kind of jump-scare, creature effects-filled, gore-style Halloween horror movie, and yet all the interviews and text about the movie they have to constantly preface you that this is NOT horror but a […]Read more "Why Would I Watch This Crap? – Crimson Peak"

Let’s hear it for 2013! The year my PhD thesis officially failed, when I learned there were even lower levels of misery to which one can sink, and discovered that hyperbolic sarcastic exaggeration is so obviously the lamest thing you can EVER do!
