“I don’t know. Maybe we were doomed from the beginning. I mean, it’s not like dad was Mr. Sunshine. Sometimes I think all our problems came directly from him. But a lot of the good stuff did too. Remember what he always called us? The Gruesome Twosome. He told us to stick together. No matter what. God, what the hell happened to us?”  Continue reading

Movie Review: Tusk (2014)

4mr tusk tea is yummy omg

amazon-logo

Tusk’s origin is fascinating to me, both as a podcaster (check out The Obsessive Viewer Podcast, by the way) and as a movie fan. On June 25th 2013, Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier recorded “The Walrus and the Carpenter“, an episode of their Smodcast podcast in which they stumbled into developing the movie that would become Tusk.

A year later Smith appeared on The Nerdist and talked about the process that went into developing the movie on the air and then creating it. Tusk is and always will be the first movie based off of a podcast. That’s something that is clearly a source of pride for Kevin Smith, as it should be. Unfortunately, I really wish the finished product was as strong as the story behind the scenes. Continue reading

Decade Reviews – The Butterfly Effect (2004) – Reviewed 7/16/04 & 12/23/14

3the butterfly effect

A decade ago, I was a teenager in high school. I had my first job at my local movie theater and used my newfound disposable income to get a Netflix subscription.

Over the summer of 2004, 17/18 year old Matt wrote 21 movie reviews and posted them on IMDb. Recently, I dug up these reviews and decided to revisit each movie and evaluate how my tastes have changed over the last decade.

So for each of these posts, I will write a present-day review and then copy/paste the original review after. Then I’ll compare the two and give a summary at the end. You can find all the reviews herefollow me on Twitter here and check out The Obsessive Viewer Podcast here. Now, lets talk about The Butterfly Effect. Continue reading
