Avenge! The Avengers Review

Viewed in the theaters in 2D. Let’s be honest here, The Avengers was never meant to be a canonical cinematic masterpiece.

Impressions of HBO’s Game Change

Wow, Sarah Palin is an idiot.  Just in case you didn’t think that before and/or you didn’t realize how big of an idiot she is, the docudrama Game Change spells it out for you nice and clear.  In fact, the movie makes her out to be such a dolt that if any of her stupidity […]
