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 – Atomic Blonde (2017)

    I admittedly knew nothing about the plot of Atomic Blonde, and it was obvious from the trailer what the bigwigs were selling: Charlize Theron as some sort of secret agent who wears sexy outfits and goes around kicking the living shit out of anyone who looks at her crossly....

  • Film Review – Life (2017)

    After returning refreshed from my small vacation at baseball’s spring training in the Arizona Cactus League, I found it difficult to get back into the daily grind. I dare anyone to say they feel otherwise, especially if you’ve had the pleasure of being served a pre-game meal of tasty...
  • Film Review – Split (2016)

    Despite the clear, warm, spring-type weather of a recent Tuesday, I decided to take a foray to the local cinematorium. This is not to be confused with a sanitarium, which is where I like to hang out on weekends. What to see? It was slim pickens, and I don’t...
