  • Film Review – 90210 Shark Attack (2014)

    My God, what have I agreed to do now? For many of The Doctor’s generation, the numbers 90120 contain a special meaning. It was a part of my life for so many years and through so many adventures. What drinking man worth his weight in tequila salt would not...
  • Film Review – Hot Bot (2016)

    I was relaxing in my laboratory late of one scorching afternoon and thinking about watching The Shape of Water – really, I was thinking about it – when TNCC chairman Matthew Cade informed me that a recent title was available on Netflix that The Doctor might be interested in...
  • Film Review – The First Purge (2018)

    Who amongst us is ready for a good purging? A quick recap of the history of The Purge movies seems in order. A political party known as the New Founding Fathers of America – the NFFA – has taken power in America and maintained a stranglehold on the Presidency....
  • Film Review – Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

    When I was but a lad, frolicking innocently in the not so leafy glades of central Texas, my childhood merriment often focused around Star Wars. The now defunct toymaker Kenner had produced a splendid and diverse cache of toys from the Star Wars universe; in fact, the toys were...
  • Film Review – Toxic Shark (2017)

  • Film Review – Super Troopers 2 (2018)

    In his unforgettable performance as The Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman, Jack Nicholson asked “Haven’t you people ever heard of the healing power of laughter?” The Doctor certainly has, and I celebrate this healing power every day. In fact, I possess a lifelong affinity for what the sober and...
  • Film Review – Ready Player One (2018)

    Eons ago, The Doctor came to the realization that books and movies are two entirely different entertainment mediums and should be judged accordingly. More to the point, books should be judged against other books and movies should be judged against other movies; crossing the streams is an unfair exercise....
  • Film Review – The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018)

    Perhaps there are some who consider the horror subgenre known as the slasher film to be an antiquated relic of the not-so-glorious past, and with good riddance. Nothing more than lowbrow entertainment for beer-drunk simpletons like The Doctor and others of his ilk, they say. Well, I say that...
