  • Batman & Robin

    Batman & Robin

    Part Two of Joel Schumacher Tribute Day afterย Phone Booth.

    Another Schumacher movie that holds a special place in my heart, but only because of the memory of the day I saw it and its great soundtrack. Honorable Mention to Uma Thurman for having the most fun ever. I wish Freeze wasnโ€™t in this, because it would be shorter and it wouldโ€™ve been all Uma.ย 

    In the summer of 1997, I was sent on a month long trip with my Grandparentsโ€ฆ

  • 3 Ninjas

    3 Ninjas



    Thatโ€™s right. Three hundred and nineteen. Three hundred and nineteen what, you ask? 319 Hiyahs!ย No oneย asked for it, but I counted 319 hiyahs between all three of the ninjas.

    Thankfully this movie has only 3 action set pieces and then an end credit rap song featuring them calledย "Kid Power"ย by Will Roc, but itโ€™s the only sound (word) you hear from each of them every time they fight. I know itโ€™s in almost every martial arts movie, but when Iโ€ฆ

  • Bowfinger



    Itโ€™s a small moment and not even a big reaction, but I love when Robert Downey, Jr. is sitting in the theater and sees his car, the only one in LA, being driven around on screen.

  • Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie

    Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie

    Would maybe have liked this more if I had seen the show, but didnโ€™t like it enough to ever watch the show, soโ€ฆ yeah.ย 

    I love Ben Schwartz, but itโ€™s rough hearing the exact same voice and cadence come out of Leonardo, Dewey Duck & Sonic the Hedgehog, because a good voice actor shouldnโ€™t sound the same in every role, more importantly, sound like Jean-Ralphio all the time.

    On that note, I never knew Brandon Mychal Smith voiced Michelangelo, and I was bummed he didnโ€™t sound more like Sam on โ€œYouโ€™re the Worstโ€ after having to look up whose voice was coming from Mikey.

    Everything Everywhere All at Once


    Iโ€™ll never hearย "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)"ย by Nine Days or think of Ratatouille the same way ever again. (Edit 4/11/22) Hereโ€™s aย linkย to a great article about Nine Days involvement with the whole film. Itโ€™s more amazing than I thought.ย 

    Maybe my favorite Michelle Yeoh performance? Sheโ€™s amazing. And itโ€™s so great to have Ke Huy Quan back on screen. I had no clue he knew how to fight! He kicked ass with a Fanny Pack! And then got to haveโ€ฆ

  • Wrinkles the Clown

    Wrinkles the Clown


    Thereโ€™s a moment where theyโ€™re in a motel room with Wrinkles and you hear this news report in the background: ย 

    โ€œFlorida Man arrested for having sexual relations with a miniature horse on several occasions...โ€

    Fucking Florida.

    Thereโ€™s not one mention of ICP or Juggalos, but at least thereโ€™s a clip from Killer Klowns.ย
