Kevin: Mike I know you and I have previously discussed the news that the entertainingly sleazy (or sleazily entertaining) Gerard Butler heist flick “Den of Thieves,” which became a surprise hit earlier this year despite a distinct lack of geostorms, is even more surprisingly getting a sequel.

Kevin: It’s been less than a week since Mike and I reviewed “Den of Thieves” and called it a testosterone-fueled remake of “Heat” that – while possessing none of the intelligence and thoughtfulness of Michael Mann’s 1995 classic – was still an enjoyably sleazy antidote to Oscar season, anchored by a brashly aggressive and muscular … Continue reading News of a “Den of Thieves” Sequel Has Kevin Excited, and Mike … Considerably Less So

TGD Plans Oscars Boycott After “Geostorm” Receives Zero Nominations!
Well it’s January, which means it’s time for the best and worst that Hollywood has to offer. “Best” meaning the Oscar contenders that are finally going into wide release in the rest of the country, and “worst” meaning garbage like “Dirty Grandpa” and “Underworld: Blood Wars” that the studios dump off and which will … Continue reading The Tough Guy Digest Year in Review and 2018 Movie Preview
Kevin: Years from now, one of the great questions that will bond people together will be, “When did you officially fall in love with ‘Geostorm’?” Was it the first of many shots of a countdown clock showing “Time to Geostorm”? Was it when Ed Harris, playing the Secretary of State of the United States, pulls … Continue reading Review: Kevin and CJ See Gerard Butler’s “Geostorm,” and Walk Out of the Theater Better People Because of It
