Robocop. Think about the title for a second. It’s greatness in a word. It’s what our world would look like if Transformers could be people too.

It’s also the name of a new hollywood reboot that surprised me in many ways. While not perfect, Robocop isn’t the train wreck I was expecting. And (bonus), it at least attempts to ask a few big questions. If Robocop were a club, you might call it Deep Thinking Over Donuts. I’m just rolling out loud here. Continue Reading…


Words used to describe Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential election:






I think that pretty much sums it up. Continue Reading…


Two years ago, Barkhad Abdi drove limos in Minneapolis. Today, he is an Academy Award nominated actor for his role in the brilliant Captain Phillips.

Did I mention Captain Phillips is brilliant? Because really, it is. If you haven’t seen it, why are you still reading this? Redbox that mug. Director Paul Greengrass (United 93, The Bourne Ultimatum) is stellar and Tom Hanks is well, Tom Hanks. Continue Reading…


I’m pumped to be able to review the new Mark Wahlberg film, Lone Survivor, for Christianity Today. Check it out on their site. Like, share, tweet, comment!



Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is a laugh-out-loud, family romp, that will make even the biggest of cynics grin. It’s all hugs and giggles as Kevin McCallister runs around New York, evading sleuthing hotel clerks and putting a damper on a pair of bumbling crooks looking to rob a toy store on Christmas Eve.

Catching Fire is a Terrible Teen Movie

I grew up in a family of eight. I competed in the Hunger Games every time dinner was served. And, as you can tell from my 6’1, 150 pound frame, the odds were never in my favor. When my parents walked in with fast food, my brothers descended on our kitchen table like it was an arena cornucopia. Continue Reading…


A good film is like cottage cheese. Even when it’s spoiled, there’s still much to enjoy. Saying this, I do my best to never give away any important movie plot points on my blog. That is unless it’s The Notebook. I have no qualms telling you THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END. Continue Reading…

Daniel Craig-haters

Fans almost revolted when they heard Ben Affleck was set to play Batman in the upcoming Superman crossover film. The outcry snowballed into a mass movement that saw petitions signed and sent out around the country. One disgruntled individual actually submitted a petition to the White House, asking the government to make it illegal for Ben Affleck to play Batman, or any other superhero, for 200 years.

Based on True Events

Sometimes good guys don’t always get the glory. Sometimes gentlemen finish last. Batman at the end of The Dark Knight. Harrison Ford in The Fugitive (At the beginning, not the end. Because at the end he gets kudos from Tommy Lee Jones). Abraham Lincoln in the Senate race of 1858. Continue Reading…


Recently, there’s been a good deal of talk surrounding the new Batman vs. Superman movie. Much of this chatter has to do with the casting of Ben Affleck as the Bat. People are legitimately worried that we won’t be able to get the job done. I on the other hand, am worried for a different reason. I’ve never particularly been a fan of Batman vs. Superman director, Zach Snyder. I wasn’t too impressed by Man of Steel and I’m scared his new crossover will be a dud. Saying this, I thought of a fun way to express my misgivings via a short story involving characters from across the Batman film franchises. It’s random, pretty ridiculous, funny, and somewhat along the lines of A Christmas Carol. If you’re a fan of the Batman movies, this is for you. I hope you enjoy it and share it with your friends and single-handedly make me a millionaire. Just don’t let Zack Snyder read it, he might be ticked! Continue Reading…
