Unfriended (2014) / Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) / Unfriended: Dark Web – Extended Version (2018)

I decided to watch the Unfriended film a couple of weeks ago, since it was available via Hulu. Been awhile since I had watched the trailer, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Essentially a found footage style movie, it has all the action happening via a character’s laptop screen using Skype, Facebook, YouTube, and […]

230 "New to Me" Movies Watched in 2019

Thanks to my AMC Stubs membership, Fathom Events, streaming services Netflix & Hulu, rentals from Redbox, and a Victory membership with the Alamo Drafthouse, I watch two hundred & thirty movies that were new to me in the year 2019. The rules to be a new to me movie are pretty simple – either a […]

The Happytime Murders (2018) and Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018)

I watched a couple of Melissa McCarthy’s movies this past week, both via Hulu. Showtime is streaming The Happytime Murders and HBO has Can You Ever Forgive Me? First up, from director Brian Henson, I watched The Happytime Murders this past Wednesday morning. In a world where humans and sentient puppets co-exist, someone is murdering […]

One Hundred & Fifty “New To Me” Movies…and Counting in 2019

So, yeah, I keep a list. And the rules for making the list are simple. One, if its something I haven’t seen before, no matter the format – theater, stream, redbox rental – it gets on the list. Two, if its a feature length television episode, it gets on the list. Three, if its something […]

Hearts Beat Loud (2018)

Hearts Beat Loud has been on my Hulu list for awhile now. I like Nick Offerman, he has been good in other movies & I watched his comedy special awhile back, so it was an easy add. But I hadn’t watched the movie until this morning. A single father in Red Hook has a daughter […]

Dunkirk (2017)

A couple of years ago, I was talking about movies with a co-worker, and he suggested, since I like Christopher Nolan movies so much, I should watch Dunkirk. I’d seen the trailer, and I was curious about it, but I hadn’t watched it. I didn’t get to the theater. I didn’t rent it from Redbox […]

Child’s Play (1988), Child’s Play 2 (1990) & Child’s Play 3 (1991)

So, I went to see the Child’s Play reboot when it opened last month. I hadn’t seen any of the original Child’s Play or Chucky movies before, but figured, what the hell, Mark Hamill was doing voicework and Aubrey Plaza was playing the mom, why not see it the same day I was watching The […]

Fight Club (1999)

Back in the fall of 2000, I was working for a rent-a-cop company in Austin, Texas, and wound up getting assigned to work overnight security at the Radisson Hotel by accident, thanks to a late call-in from a co-worker. They liked me there, so it wound up being a semi-permanent assignment. One of the front […]

East Texas Pan-Geek, An Introduction

Alright, so, let’s begin. My name is Tom, and I’m a pan-geek. Over a decade ago, a dear friend came up with the idea of pan-geeks – scifi fans that also liked regular science, fantasy, sports, board games, videogames, cosplay & conventions – basically a cross-section of nerdiness that wasn’t confined to just being a […]
