The Doctor

The Doctor attended The Poughkeepsie Institute of Technical Science or, as it is colloquially referred to, The Pits. His thesis paper "It's Far to Early to Tell" has been used in classrooms as an example of how NOT to formulate a medical science theory. The Doctor was previously employed in Mallorca, Spain as a master of ceremonies and first aid provider at local wine tastings before joining the Tuesday Night Cigar Club.
  • Film Review – Darkest Hour (2017)

    If a favored pastime of the Tuesday Night Cigar Club involves the discussing of films whilst puffing away, then of course there positively must be a review of a movie concerning that most famous of cigar smokers, the inimitable Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill. Darkest Hour, starring an unrecognizable...
  • Review – Stranger Things, Season 2

    I admit that I was excessively tardy to arrive at the table as far as Stranger Things was concerned. Despite repeated admonitions from Tuesday Night Cigar Club chairman Matt Cade, it took the good Doctor just over a year since Season 1 of Stranger Things was released on Netflix...
  • Film Review – Better Watch Out (2017)

    “Twas the night of the Tuesday Night Cigar Club Christmas show, and all through the house, not a creature was sober, not even The Doctor’s pet mouse….” And so much for my attempt at poetry. I had a line prepared that went something like this: “Our stockings were misplaced,...
  • Film Review – The Babysitter (2017)

    Unfortunately as a youth, The Doctor did not have any wild misadventures involving a babysitter to speak of. In fact, I can’t remember my parents ever employing a babysitter. At a very young age I had transformed the basement of my childhood home into a dungeon/laboratory where I spent...
  • Film Review – Happy Death Day (2017)

    One of The Doctor’s most cherished birthday events transpired at a Chuck E Cheese eatery when I turned eight. My hands were greasy from eating pepperoni pizza and my pockets were filled with grimy, syphilitic video game tokens. Due to my young age I was only half-drunk, so I...
  • Film & Cigar Review – Cult Of Chucky & Tatuaje Skinny Tiff

    It’s that time of year, friends of the Tuesday Night Cigar Club! All Hallows Eve is upon us once again. Time for TNCC chairman Matthew Cade to smoke his Tatuaje Monster cigar and for The Doctor to take the simultaneous plunge back into familiar waters. We reviewed Child’s Play...
  • Film review – Happy Hunting (2017)

    “An alcoholic drifter must battle withdrawal and psychotic rednecks after he becomes the target of a deranged sporting event.” And no, that is not the lead-in to The Doctor’s essay on how I spent my Labor Day weekend. It is instead the synopsis to the highly enjoyable indie horror...
  • Film Review – It

    Are you one of those unfortunate souls with a lifelong fear of clowns? Many kids of The Doctor’s generation were permanently traumatized after seeing Poltergeist for the first time. Apparently it’s a real condition known as coulrophobia, or something like that. I don’t judge – it would not be...
  • Film Review – Mother!

    Another school year has begun anew across the American heartland, bringing with it the change of seasons and the promise of football. Most importantly, it marks the time of the year when your favorite Doctor can begin leaving the office early to attend 4 PM movies on weekdays, as...
