Age of Ultron is just another day at the office

Wayhomer Review #137 – Lincoln (2012)

Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln

Episode #137 for Lincoln, in which our protagonist wants to just skip to the part where we give Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field their Oscars, tries to put a finger on what didn’t quite work about the direction and script, and forgets to mention that the film shawshanks by a good two minutes. Because it did. Seriously, when you see the silhouette and you think, “Oh, it’s over, this is perfect,” get up and walk out. You’ll be happier.

Your Weekend Justice #125: James Spader, Acting Gristle

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that creates verbs where they are proper nouns just to see if anyone’s paying attention. Usually they are, but they couldn’t care less. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    Pretty in Pink (1986) – DVD Review

    Pretty in Pink DVD cover art

    Film:
    DVD:

    Written by: John Hughes
    Directed by: Howard Deutch
    Starring: Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy, James Spader, Jon Cryer, Harry Dean Stanton

    Released by: Paramount
    Region: 1
    Rating: PG-13
    Anamorphic: Yes

    My Advice: If you were in high school in the 80s, own it…at least until a better DVD presentation comes out.

    Andie (Ringwald) lives in a small house with her single father, Jack (Stanton) in a sort of role reversal. She is always the one getting him to get out of bed and telling him to get a job. They love each other very much, but Jack is still getting over his wife leaving him. Anyway, it’s Andie’s senior year and she is focused on the prom. Her friend Duckie (Cryer) is completely in love with her, but he just can’t bring himself to tell her. He is also completely blind to the fact that she is crazy about a boy from the other side of the tracks named Blaine (McCarthy). Blaine asks her out on a date and eventually out to the prom, but there are other problems. His friends don’t like her, and her friends don’t like him. Will the socio-economic divide between them be too much for their relationship to handle?
