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 – Cry Havoc (2020)

    As a man who spends many a lonesome hour in his laboratory while conducting experiments and watching movies, the recent advice to “self-quarantine” and remain indoors like a mole was not as bothersome for The Doctor as it might have been for others. In addition to my admitted proclivity...
  • Film Review – Killer Crocodile 2 (1990)

    If Grade-B creature features have taught us one thing, it is that the demonic monster from the original film has laid an egg somewhere before departing the mortal coil for Creature Heaven. All we can hope for is that the sequel doesn’t follow suit by laying its own egg....
  • Film Review – Killer Crocodile (1989)

    When it comes to unearthing hidden gemstones of celluloid, TNCC chairman Matthew Cade has no equal. While recently performing his personal, meticulous brand of research to find a movie worthy of podcast discussion, Cade happened upon some examples of a film genre with the unflatteringly label of “Italo-Sleaze”. If...
  • Film Review – Jay & Silent Bob Reboot (2019)

    I am usually remiss to admit my age, but The Doctor confesses to belonging to the tail end of Generation X and therefore having grown up during the eighties and nineties. My soul hearkens for the days of resplendent shopping malls featuring darkened arcades, all of them nestled comfortably...
  • Film Review – 1917

    World War 1 films have been prolific over the years, but many of them did not generate in the United States and therefore were not seen in large numbers here. This is surely owing to the fact that our army was only involved during the war’s final year and...
  • Film Review – Necropolis Legion (2019)

    Tuesday Night Cigar Club chairman Matthew Cade conjured up an opportunity for The Doctor to view an advanced screening of Necropolis: Legion from director Christ Alexander and Full Moon Features. A marketing snippet on IMDB described the film as a “re-imagining of the 1986 Empire Pictures exploitation movie classic”...
  • Film Review – Trick (2019)

    The frost has settled on the pumpkin. As any faithful fan of the Tuesday Night Cigar Club not currently suffering from delirium tremens well knows, The Doctor loves his horror movies. Should they take place after the autumnal equinox, more’s the better. Hence, when TNCC chairman Cade suggested that...
  • Film Review – Candy Corn (2019)

    Perhaps it is still summer in Texas on the night of this writing, but the strongly attuned of sense can feel the orange tinge of autumn vibrating passionately over the horizon… ah, who am I kidding, it’s still ninety-five degrees and that “tinge of autumn vibrating” phrase was elegant...
  • Movie Review – 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019)

    Certain elements of the American experience cannot help but be polarizing. These elements cover great swaths of territory ranging from philosophical and political beliefs to more tangible and recognizable things, such as a work of art or whether the quarterback of your favorite football team is a charlatan or...
