Average writer/director... person thing. Let's all play together under the deepest of blue skies.

Bad, but in a good way. Bad Moms Christmas

Bad-Moms-Christmas

Well, last year, Bad Moms came out. It was a fun little movie that was a lot funnier than it really should have been. The tale of three suburban moms trying to take the stick out of their asses and live life. At least that’s what I got from it.

Now, a year later. We have the same group of women getting the stick out of their asses… at Christmas. With the parents coming to visit conveniently at the same time.

Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski, and Cheryl Hines join the cast this time around as the grandmothers and as you could guess, are all clashing with their children in one way or another.

If you’ve seen any Christmas movie, you’re already seen the one. From the buildup of the anger, to the blowup, to the reconciliation. It’s all standard stuff. You’ll have some really good laughs in there though. They don’t always feel organic, but they’re laughs nonetheless.

And yes, there’s a swath of movie that’s literally a commercial for Jumpzone. They Adam Sandlered a commercial into the movie. But the scenes were funny so it’s okay I guess.

3/5… it’s fun and you should see it after you make the better choice and see Thor. And there’s a sequel coming so you might as well be up to date. It’s not as good as the first. But that’s a rarity these days anyway.

So go see Thor AND this. It’s a good combo.

We’re back.

It’s been a minute. Shit’s been insane. But you’re going to be seeing stuff every day now. Isn’t that wonderful? Maybe, perhaps.

But I’ll be talking about the upcoming film projects and what I’m doing from the moment forward. As well as talk about where I’ve been. It’s been quite a ride and it’s only getting more crazy day after day.

Look out for some new titles. 2018 is gonna be big.

 

So give us a like on that facebook thing. Follow me on that twitter thing, and let’s let the good times roll.

Welcome to Purgatory: Trying to understand life after trying to take your own.

Welcome to purgatory my friends.

Of course I mean a mental one, not an actual physical one… or is purgatory purely spiritual? But that’s for another day. I’m simply referring to a negative state of mind you can’t get out of. It feels like you do everything you can, but you just end up right back where you started. Like you’re fenced in by failure, anxiety, or whatever else you might perceive is weighing you down.

You’ll spend your days, not necessarily depressed, but more hopeless. You haven’t given up but you just seem to be spinning your wheels.

In my case, it comes off my suicide attempt. Of course I didn’t die (this was almost 10 years ago now.) But as you’re going through all those failures and hardships, even a decade later, no matter how many good things happened, you’re brought back to this terrible place where you started.

You sit there some days and you just want to die. But you know you’ve already tried that. That shit hurt and didn’t even work out for you then. Maybe you just weren’t meant to die then for whatever reason. But now you know that you’re stuck in this world for the time being whether you want to or not. It’s completely out of your hands.

What can be done?

People will tell you to “Just get over it”. Well you can’t, this mess is going to haunt you in one way or another for the rest of your life. So there’s no simple fix. Drinking and drugs only mask it.

I honestly can’t tell you. What you can do is take every day one at a time. I’m not going to pretend to be an expert on the issue, because it’s really not that simple. Everyone’s going to feel the way they’re going to feel. I just choose to work on making other people happy. Movies and stuff are always a great escape for me when I’m at my lowest. So I want to give back that way. And memes, I love to share memes and laughs with others. Not to mention dogs. I love dogs. I love working with them and petting and loving them.

Between those things I find it makes the days almost tolerable.

In the end, I think it’s about making sure no one feels the same terrible way I do every single day of my existence.

I wanted it to be a good movie. Skiptrace (2016) review.

Jackie Chan.

Okay, you already know it’s going to at least be worth a watch. And Skiptrace is.

But wait, there’s more. You got Jackass’ own Johnny Knoxville in it too? This pretty much guarantees someone’s going to get hurt for no reason.

Yeah, I forgot about this movie too. But I finally got around to watching it.

Jackie Chan plays a cop (surprise) who’s always after this crime boss called “The Matador” and his partner and best friend is killed.

Knoxville plays a conman who witnesses a murder in a Hong Kong casino and ends up being shipped off to Russia by the mob. Yeah, there’s a lot going on here and it’s not really  completely thought out. But we do have WWE’s own Eve Torres with a bad Russian accent.

From there, we find Jackie coming to Johnny’s rescue and the embark on a road trip from Russia to Hong Kong. All the while being chased by both the Russians and the Hong Kong… crime whatever. They learn more and more from one another and find a little common ground.

There’s a twist. It’s actually pretty okay.

But obvious ADR problems and numerous plot holes keep this from being great. Which is a shame because Jackie and Knoxville make a great team. I hope they make another movie together. Hell, I’ll take a sequel to this even.

5/10. This movie could be a lot more fun if the Russians weren’t always randomly showing up. They didn’t even give a valid reason for randomly running into them. But you can also never go wrong with watching Jackie awkwardly fight people.

Smugglecraft has a Kickstarter at last. Yay!

Way back at IndypopCon 2016 (damn that was forever ago) we got to play this little gem.

Think of it like the Sparrow racing in Destiny, except there are customizations that actually matter and the races are compelling.

We got to do play a little bit and even though if was obviously still early, if any of you know me I’m a big fan of racers… the more insane the better. Just look at my love for Split Second.

Anyway, give their kKickstarter a look. Give them some money. And the beta is coming sooner than I thought. So that’s a great thing. I’ll be picking it up for sure. All I hope is that the online will be up to par. Even though you’ll be doing couch play with this one more often for sure.

Let’s Talk About some Damn Puzzle Games

I’m going to keep this short.

I love Puyo.
I love Tetris.

Puyo and Tetris together. Yes!

And yes I know it’s been out in Japan for quite some time. And yes I’ve gotten to play it a few times. But now I can read stuff. Because it’s finally getting an (official) western release.

 

Here’s the video. I just can’t right now.

I knew it was coming. I just needed a date. And there we go. The question remains, do I get it for Switch or PS4? I might just go with PS4 because arcade stick. But I’m going to the Switch Event next week and will get some hands on time. So I’ll figure that out.

All right. Back the the grindy grind.
