IIt's almost Fall. That means football, colder weather and booze. Eh, but booze is a year round affair, so...... leaves? And fall is boring, but that's why it's also [b]MWADS[/b] time. Or it will be, by the time October gets here. So it's time to do a little planning. If you remember from the past w...

This has been around for some time recently and hasn't necessarily been debunked. The most interesting things is the studio involved with Excitetrucks that is in on this. Very interesting.

One of my favorite types of movies are those that comment/critique/analyze their own genre through films. I don't know why, but being aware of both the purpose of the film and the voice is almost always unique. Directors who gun for something like this also take a lot of chances, more so than they w...

Old or Young?
My top pick is probably:

| Movie/TV Board|| Chuck Season 5 SPOILERS - Freauxzen on 2/24/14 at 9:43 pm|
Might be the worst season of a close to great show.
The whole season, just never knew what they wanted it to be. Ended in a TERRIBLE way for the overall tone of the series. Wasted their best villain for some 4-episode villain with a terrible arc that led to the bad ending.
Just bad all around....
