Who Is More Annoying in a Movie Theater: Greta Gerwig or the Woman Tweeting Behind Her?

Kevin: A couple of weeks ago CJ and I reviewed “Avengers: Infinity War,”  and we found ourselves surprisingly amenable to Thanos’ desire to wipe out a good chunk of humanity after sitting next to the world’s most annoying Marvel fan. After nearly three hours of having to endure this insane woman’s loud commentary on the … Continue reading Who Is More Annoying in a Movie Theater: Greta Gerwig or the Woman Tweeting Behind Her?

“Star Wars” Friday Flashback: May the Fourth Be With “Solo” to Be Better Than “Rogue One” or “Last Jedi”

Kevin: If you are wondering why you are seeing a bunch of “Star Wars” memes in your social media feed today, it’s because it is May the fourth, get it? You know, how “fourth” kinda but not really sounds like “force,” so “May the fourth be with you.” Yeah I know it’s really stupid, but … Continue reading “Star Wars” Friday Flashback: May the Fourth Be With “Solo” to Be Better Than “Rogue One” or “Last Jedi”

Friday Flashback: Every Football Game is Super Bowl-Caliber in the Bizarro World of “Any Given Sunday”

(Originally posted Feb. 3, 2017) Kevin: As Americans gather around the TV this Super Bowl Sunday to watch expensive commercials – and occasionally the accompanying football game – it’s possible they’ll get an all-time classic like Giants-Bills 1991 or Patriots-Seahawks last year. However it’s also more than likely they’ll be stuck with a desultory blowout … Continue reading Friday Flashback: Every Football Game is Super Bowl-Caliber in the Bizarro World of “Any Given Sunday”

The “No Small Parts” Series Begins with Kim Coates Seriously Trying Bruce Willis’ Patience in “The Last Boy Scout”

Kevin: They say there are no small parts, just small actors. Actually the actors who usually say this are probably bitter that they can’t get bigger parts, but that doesn’t make it any less true, which is why Tough Guy Digest is celebrating the scene-stealers who made a lasting impression in just a few minutes … Continue reading The “No Small Parts” Series Begins with Kim Coates Seriously Trying Bruce Willis’ Patience in “The Last Boy Scout”

Updated: “It” is 2+ Hours of an Obnoxious Juggalo Ineffectually Trying to Scare Some Kids, Over and Over and Over

(Updated with additional commentary on Pennywise’s general uselessness from Anthony and CJ at the bottom.) Kevin: At a certain point in the new big screen adaptation of “It” – which just pulled in an astounding $123 million at the box office last weekend – we get a glimpse of a 1989-era movie marquee advertising “A … Continue reading Updated: “It” is 2+ Hours of an Obnoxious Juggalo Ineffectually Trying to Scare Some Kids, Over and Over and Over

TGD Analyzes Recent North Korean Aggression … in the Movies at Least

Kevin: Tensions with North Korea are at a fever pitch, with the government of Kim Jong-Un reportedly testing a hydrogen bomb last week, while the country continues threatening to launch missiles at the United States and its allies. Fortunately these remain just threats, while Pyongyang has instead been much more aggressive against the rest of … Continue reading TGD Analyzes Recent North Korean Aggression … in the Movies at Least

Review: “Savage Dog” Lives Up to its Title (the “Savage” Part at Least, There’s No Actual Dog)

Kevin: A few weeks ago I discussed my excitement over the fact that the upcoming action film “Triple Threat” gathers together an All-Star team of the best martial arts stars working today, including Scott Adkins, Michael Jai White, Iko Uwais, and Tony Jaa. My only concern was that I had no prior exposure to the … Continue reading Review: “Savage Dog” Lives Up to its Title (the “Savage” Part at Least, There’s No Actual Dog)

Best of the Worst Week: The Award for “Worst Poster” Goes to … “Loose Cannons”

Kevin: Although the 1980s and early 90’s produced some of the best action flicks ever made, it also produced some of the world’s laziest posters advertising those movies. I know the typical buddy cop formula didn’t give them much to work with, but apparently this was the typical thought process at the average studio marketing … Continue reading Best of the Worst Week: The Award for “Worst Poster” Goes to … “Loose Cannons”

Best of the Worst Week: The Award for “Worst Hero Introduction” Goes to … John Stamos in “Never Too Young to Die”

Kevin: Many of our favorite movie heroes are often defined by their very first appearance. Think Indiana Jones finally emerging from the shadows in “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Think Sean Connery saying “Bond … James Bond” for the first time in “Dr. No.” Think Arnold Schwarzenegger carrying A GIANT TREE! on his shoulders in “Commando” (even … Continue reading Best of the Worst Week: The Award for “Worst Hero Introduction” Goes to … John Stamos in “Never Too Young to Die”
