  • 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)

    What happens when you combine a Puerto Rican island singles resort for toned hotties with a man-eating shark?  What if said shark is also capable of projectile spitting a stream of poisonous, green sludge at its would-be victims?  And what if the same horrid toxins that infected the shark...
  • Film Review – Deep Blue Sea 2 (2018)

    There are some closeminded individuals, probably sanctimonious and dull, who do not believe in such things as fate or destiny. Your favorite Doctor is proudly not of their ilk. Deep Blue Sea 2 is more of a quasi-remake than a sequel to the 1999 thriller starring Samuel L. Jackson...
  • Episode 72 – Robot Ninja (1989) / Macanudo Inspirado Red / Kung Fu Robot IPA

    I may chug an entire beer during the opening of tonight’s episode. And, perhaps, I just might chug an entire beer later on in the show as well. Why all the beer chugging, you ask? Why the hell not! Actually I’m fairly certain there were actual motivations behind me...
  • 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...
  • Episode 71 – King Cobra (1999) / S&R cigar / Copperhead Medusa beer

    Tonight’s featured cigar is special. Tonight’s dark and fruity, extra strong beer is kind of special too. And tonight’s round table discussion concerning Dukes Of Hazzard star Tom Wopat and what he allegedly did with his index finger recently is kind of super special. I think you know us...
  • 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....
  • Episode 70 – Death Wish 3 (1985) / 2012 by Oscar Corojo cigar / Oskar Blues Old Chub beer

    I considered writing up tonight’s episode page by channeling the voice of Charles Bronson like I did way back on Episode 3 but over the last 67 episodes I’ve lost a little bit of gas in the ol’ creative tank for some reason, thanks beer!!!, so I’m just going...
  • 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...
