Batman V Superman Official Teaser

I’m torn about this teaser. On one hand, I know this is just a teaser and the movie is a year away. They can only reveal, but so much, at this point and time. However, the fan boy inside of me hates this teaser WITH a passion. I wasn’t excited at all. To be completely truthful, I was mostly bored. What I despise most is the tone of the teaser. It’s…

Star War: Force Awakens Official Teaser #2

What do you want me to say? This teaser is critic proof from beginning to end. But, to avoid being biased, I’ll say something unfavorable. John Boyega has to keep his mouth closed.

DVD Review of Wild: A Wild Journey that Doesn't Excite

 

Synopsis: A woman takes a 1,100 mile hike down the PCT in order to deal with a personal issue. 

 

 

Wild isn’t as wild as the title suggests. It’s rather more mundane. Based on a memoir by Cheryl Strayed, who experienced the events depicted in the movie. I could see how this was worth being made into a book, tho…

"Kneel before me. I said? KNEEL! Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It?s the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel."
