Sam has loved, and loved to hate, movies and board games since he was a wee lad. He has been schooled in the ancient art of critique from an early age, reading every review (especially the bad ones) that he was able to get his hands on. Starting in the Golden Age of the early internet with Hollywood.com and advancing through the years with Rotten Tomatoes, IGN, and RedLetterMedia, he is hard-pressed not to remember a rating or particular comment about a movie released in the last 15 years. He has dreamed of the day when he could add his voice to the discordant chorus, and finally that day has come...

Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, if you have, grab a shopping cart I got something to show you.     In TWD, Happiness is a Fatal Illness From the opening shots of “Bury Me Here,” I was very concerned for young Ben.

Sam 0
Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, if you have, let’s get busy.     Alternative titles to this weeks episode: Gunning for Guns or Carnival of Horrors!

The Walking Dead S7E8 Review: “Hearts Still Beating”

Sam 0
Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, if you have, well then come on in. TWD ended its midseason run with (another) 90 minute episode. At this point it’s unusual for the show to only be 60 minutes, including commercials.  The bloated run-time is likely a side-effect of the expansive […]

Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.   So I guess Carl is Negan’s apprentice now (and I mean that in the Star Wars sense).

Warning: Spoiler Alert! turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.     Well, sand walkers were cool.
