  • 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...
  • Episode 69 – Hooper (1978) / Alpha Defuser Maduro cigar / Saint Arnold Santo beer

    Well here we are, folks, Episode 69! I bet you think we spend a big chunk of time this evening telling tasteless 69 jokes and finding a way to creatively work that particular naughty numerical reference into the discussion at every possible opportunity. Well you would be wrong! Give...

  • Film Review – Death Wish (2018)

    The time has long since passed when your friendly Doctor used to complain about the dearth of originality that resulted in so many films being remade. I’d say I was intemperate in my youth, but I’m not exactly temperate now; one just sometimes has to settle into a mode...
  • Episode 68 – Wet And Wild Summer! (1992) / Ogre Seventy cigar / Fosters Premium Ale

    Folks, I tried to do Leprechaun movie tonight for Saint Patrick’s Day, I really truly did. But the latest entry in the tiny green franchise Leprechaun: Origins was so damn bad that I just couldn’t subject either fellow TNCC brothers or you to suffer through its boring tale. I...
  • Episode 67 – 47 Meters Down (2017) / Crna Nok cigar / Mystery Of The Deep Double IPA

    I went into The Corner Of No Hope this evening feeling a little dejected, as I had tried unsuccessfully to make tonight’s film discussion revolve around a double-feature of shark movies but the Video-On-Demand Gods didn’t allow that to happen. Luckily, a preposterous amount of delicious beer and a...
  • Film Review – Hostiles (2018)

    These days western films enjoy a theatrical release about as often as The Doctor’s Dallas Cowboys win playoff games – well, that’s unfairly inaccurate, there have been more than two westerns released in the last twenty years, but I’ve made my point. Whenever a tale of the old west...
  • Episode 66 – A Tale Of Two Coreys (2018) / Isabela Serpentine cigar / Two Hearted Ale

    A cigar that features TWO wrappers, a TWO HEARTED ale, a film about the TWO Coreys, and TWO wits between the four of us, welcome everybody to our SECOND episode of 2018! Will tonight’s subjects earn our respect or be flushed down the toilet like a smelly number TWO...
