  • 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...
  • 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...

  • Film Review – The Dirt (2019)

    Call Me Doctor Feelgood Were you alive in the eighties? If not, do you wish you had been? And, most important of all, do you rock? All four members of the great rock and roll glam band Motley Crüe – Vince Neil, Tommy Lee, Mick Mars, and Nicki Sixx...
  • Film Review – Glass (2019)

    Apologies are due for what I intend to be a brief opening rant. Feel free to skip to the “Glass” subheading below, but for those otherwise inclined I would share an observation or two about the evils of going to the movies on a Saturday. As your favorite Doctor...
  • Film Review – The Last Laugh (2019)

    Before I commence a brief dissertation on the recent Netflix release The Last Laugh starring the now-septuagenarians Chevy Chase and Richard Dreyfuss, I would like to take a moment to reflect upon a portion of the Chase filmography.
