(Originally posted May 26, 2017) Kevin: Back in January we expressed our skepticism that the big-screen remakes of “CHiPs” and “Baywatch” could possibly match their television counterparts in both the action and comedy (at least of the unintentional variety) departments. We all know how the new “CHiPs” turned out, and it doesn’t look like Dwayne … Continue reading TGD Friday Flashback: The Rock’s “Baywatch” Can’t Be More Entertaining Than Hasselhoff’s Bizarro “Baywatch Nights”
Kevin: It’s not even December yet, but Hollywood has already gifted us with the first trailer for what is likely to be the big event film for 2018: “Paddington 2.” I guess it’s worth noting that we also got footage for yet another comic book movie, as well as a film that stars Kevin Spacey … Continue reading TGD Trailer Round-Up: New “Avengers,” Spacey-less “All the Money in the World,” and … “Paddington 2”!
Kevin: So CJ even though we both finally got around to seeing “Justice League” last week, we completely went against the whole theme of the film by seeing it separately, while if the entire Tough Guy Squad had seen it together we could have been the most powerful reviewing team of all time.

Kevin: After years of being typecast in stereotypical hillbilly parts, Billy Bob Thornton finally had to write himself a role worthy of his talents in “One False Move,” a small indie film co-starring the late Bill Paxton that Gene Siskel picked as the best film of 1992. Four years later Thornton again surprised audiences with his … Continue reading “No Small Parts”: Billy Bob Thornton Just Wants to Feel Good About Himself in Steven Seagal’s “On Deadly Ground”
(Originally posted June 9, 2017) Kevin: You’re probably aware that “Wonder Woman” made movie history last weekend, as after a year and a half we finally discovered who took that photo that Diana was so anxious to get back from Lex Luthor in “Batman v. Superman.” Well it turns out it was some old French guy. … Continue reading “Justice League” Friday Flashback: Kevin Feels Super Empowered After Seeing “Wonder Woman”
Update: When I wrote this back in March I promised to do an update after sitting down and listening to the second half of the “Daredevil” soundtrack; the fact that it is now mid-November should be an indication of how much I was dreading that. But with “Justice League” arriving this weekend, and with Ben Affleck’s … Continue reading “Justice League” Week: The Award for “Worst Soundtrack” Goes to … Ben Affleck’s “Daredevil” (Updated with 30% More Coolio!)
