• 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...

    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)

  • 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 – 47 Meters Down (2017)

    Just when The Doctor thought it was safe to go back to the movies… I have a bone to pick that has nothing to do with the actual film, so I will place my grousing in a footnote for those who are interested * An authentically scary horror movie...
