Kevin: Few people on this earth can claim they have sat in a theater and watched five Keanu Reeves movies in a row, and until last weekend CJ and I counted ourselves among those losers. That has all changed though thanks to “The Reevesolution,” an all-day celebration by the Alamo Drafthouse of a star whose … Continue reading Welcome to “The Reevesolution”! CJ and Kevin on Five Keanu Classics
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: Forget about B.C. vs. A.D., as of last Friday I now divide the historical calendar into two eras: B.T.T. (before I knew “Triple Threat” existed) and A.T.T. (after I saw the “Triple Threat” trailer). The reason “Triple Threat” has gone from a movie I didn’t know about a week ago to my most anticipated … Continue reading Meet the Stars of Your Future Favorite Action Film: “Triple Threat”
Every great action hero needs a great hero name. For instance, would Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry” be nearly as intimidating and iconic if his name was Detective Larry Fagenbaum rather than Harry Callahan? We think not, which is why the Tough Guy Digest staff was asked to give some of our favorite fictional names for … Continue reading TGD Staff Poll: Favorite Hero Names
Kevin: Every movie buff often assumes that films were better “back in the day.” Hell, in 1989 I remember seeing articles lamenting the quality of the then-current crop of films compared to 50 years earlier, and this was in a year that produced “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” “Field of Dreams,” “Dead Poets Society,” … Continue reading 2001: Worst Year Ever for Movies?
Kevin: Like its titular hero, “John Wick: Chapter 2” blew away all newcomers at the box office for the second weekend in a row, again defeating anyone not made of Legos or in a sadomasochistic sexual relationship. The good word of mouth, and the fact that the follow-up is poised to be the rare sequel … Continue reading Three Films You Should Watch After “John Wick: Chapter 2”
Kevin: This weekend saw the release of the heavily anticipated follow-up to a film that both shocked us and gave us multiple orgasms with its hot hardcore action. No not “50 Shades Darker,” I’m referring to “John Wick: Chapter 2” of course. The cult of “John Wick” has obviously grown since the original blew us away … Continue reading Review: “John Wick 2” Hits Its Targets with Maximum Efficiency
Kevin: While there was plenty of action on the field in Sunday’s overtime classic Super Bowl, we also got some tantalizing glimpses at several films that made our 2017 Preview. And as far as we’re concerned, Charlize Theron kissing Vin Diesel in the “Fate of the Furious” trailer was even more shocking than the Pats’ fourth-quarter comeback, … Continue reading TGD Super Bowl Trailer Round-Up: Charlize Kisses Vin! Johnny Collects a Paycheck! Optimus Prime Still a Sociopath!
While we here at Tough Guy Digest closed out 2016 with our Best and Worst lists for the year, we are kicking off 2017 with our rundown of our Most and Least Anticipated movies expected to come out in the next 12 months. Will any of these grace our Best/Worst lists at the end of … Continue reading The Tough Guy Digest 2017 Preview: Most and Least Anticipated Movies
CJ: I found myself one Saturday night with nothing to do and too tired to masturbate again. Searching through HBO NOW, I stumbled on the premiere of “Point Break.” “Point Break!” I thought, “the gods are smiling upon me!” Why I thought the original “Point Break” was premiering in late 2016 is cause for concern. Released … Continue reading Drunken Reviews: CJ Goes to the EXTREME! Watching “Point Break (Newer Shittier Version)”
