  • Cigar Review – Casa Cuevas Reserva Maduro

    So I’m reviewing today’s cigar outdoors, which is a very rare occurrence for me, but having just returned from an incredible trip to Cigar Heaven (aka the beautiful country of Nicaragua) I’m inspired to get out of the dark, brooding Corner Of No Hope more often and enjoy the...
  • Film Review – Killer Crocodile (1989)

    When it comes to unearthing hidden gemstones of celluloid, TNCC chairman Matthew Cade has no equal.

  • Film & Cigar Review – Sharkenstein (2016) & Tatuaje The Bride cigar

    Twas a greyish, winter morning of late when The Doctor and Tuesday Night Cigar Club president Matthew Cade pondered via phone exchange what movie I should next review. As usual, boredom and frustration led to us perusing the titles of grade-B (and C and D) shark movies, the kind...
  • 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...
