Clerks III might be known as Kevin Smith’s heart attack movie but this is one of those films that hits all of the emotional feelings. By the time my review runs, it will have been one month since Lionsgate sent the press screeners for review. One month in which I couldn’t tell anyone about how this is one of those “I’m not crying, you’re crying” films. And yes, this even includes not tweeting my feelings…"Clerks III Hits All The Emotional Feelings"

I’ve been reading a lot of biographies during the pandemic quarantine but not so many memoirs. Suffice it to say, Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good is one of the outright entertaining reads of the past year. I could hear Smith’s voice coming through the pages as I turned them over the…"Tough Sh*t by Kevin Smith"
The Last Blockbuster, standing in Bend, Oregon, is a tribute in and of itself to the long gone era of looking around for something to rent. While theaters are currently fighting for their survival in a world destined for streaming, Blockbuster remains the one of the only places where you can still rent movies. Okay, so it may just be a single Blockbuster store that’s still standing. It’s a stark reminder of an era that…"The Last Blockbuster: A Tribute To A Long Gone Era"
Max Reload and the Nether Blasters is a wonderful throwback to the 1980s adventure films we love but with an added mix of gaming. What do The Lord of the Rings, Ghostbusters, and The Mighty Ducks all have in common. They were a group of people who “relied on each other to succeed against a greater evil.” Or so Reggie tells Max. This doesn’t even take into account the Top Gun and Batman references. Fallout…"Max Reload and the Nether Blasters"
