That Buchanan duet and Message to You with Keith Urban as absolute aces. I haven’t been able to get either out my head all week. Of course, every time I run across the original Bee Gees doing those songs a capella, I have the same problem for a week or so. Read more

I’d love it if reality TV producers would check out the incredible ratings that shows that do NOT feature manufactured drama (produced by people who are probably not as horrible as they’re encouraged to be). I’m sick of it. You know what people really relate to? Relatability - REAL reality and honesty. Not bullshit. Read more

I’d like to think that, with context, the header photo would make sense. But at the same time it’s kinda funnier not having it.

There are so many shows that should have been cancelled before NEXT. Oh, well, that’s 2020. I’m glad that they at least wrapped things up (ominous hard drives notwithstanding), rather than a huge cliffhanger that never gets resolved.

There’s also a large “B” attached to the review which gets across roughly the same idea.

I’ve been pretty sniffy toward a lot of the writing on this site this year, but I quite enjoyed the conceit and execution of this review. Thank you! :)

This is great. Whenever I hear the name Darla, my mind can only process it in that voice.

Makes sense now, why most reviews sound the same- they literally aren’t allowed to mention anything. This one, however, was really fun to read! Read more

I watched this about a week after a pretty bad car accident and laughed so harddiscovered I had bruised ribs.

I was impressed with Matthew Rhys in PERRY MASON.  Seamlessly and convincingly went from shattered drunk battling demons and depression to righting himself  slowly and deliberately over the course of the series.  There were so many scenes where he absolutely crushed it.  Also would be remiss not mentioning John Read more

I love love love this movie and so did my buddies when we watched it at my house years ago. The brothers fighting is something I could relate to and Faris is so great she makes you cry laugh. Also this maybe the best Chris Kline ever was in a movie. Read more

My wife and I have watched this for Christmas for over a decade. Die Hard and Just Friends are our favorite Christmas Movies, and I probably quote JF 5 times as much as DH. It is such a genuinely fun movie. Read more

We all kind of forgot that Anna Faris’s thing used to be doing hilarious imitations of Britney/Lindsay/Paris/mid-00s celebutantes. This, Lost in Translation, the House Bunny. And that EVERYONE shot that fish in that barrel for like 15 solid years because apparently Britney and Paris really needed to be taken down a Read more

A Canadian who can’t ice skate! That’s just....wrong. Unpossiible! Sorry, Reynolds, but your Canadian License has just been revoked. Gretsky, Boitano and your next door neighbor condemn you to Schitt’s Creek.

I was living there at the time they filmed Just Friends, and it was freezing cold. People make jokes about -40 weather in Saskatchewan, but it’s rare that it gets to that point. Not that winter. Our city was filled with dumbstruck Americans walking around in brand-new expensive parkas. This was also during the heyday Read more

It seems like a lot of love and care went in to the making of this. I’ve always had an aversion to Ryan Reynolds, but maybe I’ll give it a look.
