When the credits roll on Christopher Nolan's latest film - a cinematic experience that brings the full scale of the Battle of Dunkirk to the big screen for the first time - the audience is left speechless. Unlike nearly all of his other films, it's not because you're trying Read more

Dream-Casting a Live-Action Little Mermaid for Disney

Welcome to the Third Annual Groucho Awards! This is my own platform to nominate and award the movies of my choosing, because it seems that far too often, the movies with the biggest campaigns get Oscar nominations and the little guys are left out in the cold. This year Read more

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith

Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more

The Bachelorette: Episode Two Commentary

Posted on by Guest in Featured, Guest Spots, Reality Check, Television | 1 Comment

This is the most authentic season of The Bachelorette in history, guys!  The first date was baking cookies in Emily’s “real” house, and taking the suitor to Ricky’s “real” soccer practice. (Kid doesn’t look like much of an athlete to me).   She didn’t wear a custom made prom dress until about an hour and fifteen minutes in, and they didn’t even get on a plane until later in the show.  And they got in a private plane to go to West Virginia.  How disappointed must these guys be?  Here they are, thinking they’re going to be jet setting to the Caribbean to make out with a mommy super model, and instead they have to ride in a suburban to a 6 year old’s soccer practice and they’re not even allowed to get out of the car.  Tough times.

Liz Riggs: The Bachelorette Premiere

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Guest Spots, Reality Check, Television | Leave a comment

The Bachelorette is back and it’s harder to make fun of than ever. Because Emily Maynard’s ex-fiance baby daddy died in a plane crash before she had the chance to tell him she was pregnant with their child, I’m going to really have to focus on the douche bag contestants and the fact that Chris Harrison is wearing a wedding ring. And the fact that this show is vastly unfair to people who are ugly. Read more

Papa Nes: The Gambling Odds of an American in Casablanca

Posted on by Guest in Featured, Guest Spots | 1 Comment

Greetings from 4,367 miles “across the pond” in a land where flags fly every few miles on the highway and my cab driver couldn’t be nicer, buying me “café”* during our brief stop for “petro” on the 99 km drive to Rabat, the capital of Morocco.

*Note this “café” was espresso in a plastic cup, I am not man enough for this but sip it politely.

Before I get too deep into what I wish I could call prose (wasn’t blessed with the writing gift, but if you need someone to give you golf lesson/argue why Omar from The Wire is better than Don Draper, Walter White, and Tony Soprano/argue the merits of why Abbey Road is the best Beatles album/go to a Phish show/schmooze the crap out of an audience… then I am your man).
