Goodfellas (1990)

video poker machines near me Henry Hill and friends. Pesci is amazing, DeNiro is great as usual, Liotta’s good, and the supporting cast is good.  “Truth is stranger than fiction”…sometimes, I guess.  But sometimes truth is exciting and sometimes truth is just kinda fcken dull…therefore, so is this movie. But it’s great more often than it is dull, and that’s… Continue reading Goodfellas (1990)

Perennial Halloween Wishes

Sarishābāri prednisone and gabapentin For those of you that celebrate All Hallows’ Eve/Samhain in a religious sense, happy Holiday. For those of you that celebrate Halloween in a party/dressup/trick-or-treat/scary movies sense, have a good time. For those few that (having reached adulthood, especially) still affix any ‘Crow’-ish notions and/or actions to this evening, I suggest watching the following and… Continue reading Perennial Halloween Wishes

A Famous Propagandist

“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.” – Adolf Hitler

For those few recluses that don’t know already, it’s a very non-romanticized (from the European-American perspective) depiction of “How the West was won”:  not just through brave pioneering, but also by… Continue reading Dances With Wolves (1990)

Poultrygeist: Night Of The Chicken Dead (2006)

Hopefully this isn’t the chicken of tomorrow. It’s a Troma film.  If you don’t know, that means it’s really low budget, really tasteless, and really cheezy.  But it does have some wit to it, in an appallingly disgusting sort of way. To measure your tolerance level, watch ‘Dead Alive’ first.  If you can get through… Continue reading Poultrygeist: Night Of The Chicken Dead (2006)

American Beauty (1999)

Kevin Spacey is completely brilliant, as he usually is. It’s very cleverly written, and because of that it makes you feel.  It makes you feel sadness, loneliness, humor, desperation, longings for things past and long gone, brief moments of exhilaration…the same way the characters do. But the characters seem to exist simply for this purpose.… Continue reading American Beauty (1999)

Exchange of the Day (Part 2)

“Why the big secret? People are smart. They can handle it.” “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew… Continue reading Exchange of the Day (Part 2)
