TWO GUYS ONE TREK

2018 Movie #8: What We Do In The Shadows

So, what name was on eeevverrryyybooodddyyy's lips this fall after Thor: Ragnarok came out? Taika Waititi. The New Zealander who wrote and directed it... Well, the first thing I did after watching that movie was look him up, and the FIRST thing that came up once I did...

2018 Movie #7: Black Panther

Man...if you'd have asked me ten years ago which comic book titan that I liked more, or which one I thought more-deserved world domination, I'd have answered "DC" in about half a second. And I'd have been so, sooo wrong. Marvel has done it again. Black Panther is...

2018 Movie #6: Dunkirk

It's been 8 years since Christopher Nolan made a solidly good film...at least in my humble estimation, being a judgey-mc-judgerson here on the sidelines 😛 Dunkirk, at the very least puts Nolan back into that category. It's not spectacular by any stretch of the...

2018 Movie #5: 13th

Can't tell you *precisely* what made me want to watch this movie earlier this week, but it's definitely been on my radar since it came out last year and was among the Academy Award nominees. It did not disappoint. THE BLURB Filmmaker Ava DuVernay explores the history...

2018 Movie #4: The Big Sick

Three cheers to the best "awards movie" I've seen thus far that has DELIVERED. Guys...this is two movies in a row that I've really, really enjoyed! If you haven't yet seen The Big Sick, get on your amazon prime account and watch it! I'm not sure it's exactly...

2018 Movie #3: Hidden Figures

This one was an awards contender LAST year, but I never got around to see it...well, I'm glad I did this year! I found this movie to be surprisingly moving. I honestly wasn't expecting it...but I guess I'm a sucker for stories about people receiving recognition...

2018 Movie #2: The Shape of Water

Of Guillermo Del Toro, I will say this: he is a maker of *films*. He doesn't just make movies, he always has an eye to doing something artistic, meaningful, and unique. He has what those of us in the writing business would call a "voice." The Shape of Water didn't hit...

2018 Movie #1: Assassin’s Creed

So, guys...I'm doing the 100 movies in a calendar year challenge again in 2018! Muuuuch excite and celebrationsssss 🙂 If you're not familiar with the 100 movie challenge, it's pretty straightforward: watch 100 movies that you've never seen before in the span of a...

Finally finally finally...the day has come. "Starstuff" is out today in eBook and Paperback on Amazon. For a LIMITED TIME it's going to be 99c, so if you're on the fence about when to snag it, get it now. Although I'm sure I will run more sporadic promos over the life...

Day 1,443: Blade Runner 2049

Guys. GUYS. The new Blade Runner is so freaking good. Holy crap. I am on record as saying that as a movie...meaning the whole package, including story, characters and dialogue...the original Blade Runner is totally overrated. It’s a decent movie at best, slow and...

Day 1,566: It’s So Cold

Omg, you guys...it's so freaking cold in LA right now. It might actually freeze. I realize to most of you other folksy folks out there that FREEZING is a usually occurrence in vast swaths of the rest of the world out there, but for LA, it is super, super uncommon for...

Day 1,565: Just a day at work

Today was a big win in that it felt like just another day at work, and shiiiit, guys, that's basically been my goal in a nutshell for the past month and a half: just find normal again. I wrote 4,000 *good* words like it was nothing. Almost like it was nothing 😛 It...

Day 1,564: We Move On

So, tonight, the Ho and I had a little dinner and a movie (at home, on our couch) date night. We went out to have BCD because both of us had been craving Soon Tofu, and then we came home and we watched What We Do In The Shadows, which was on our list ever since we saw...
