Play “Gloria” – The St. Louis Blues Are the 2019 Stanley Cup Champions

Posted: June 13, 2019 at 2:36 pm   /   Sports, St. Louis Blues

That’s not how you’re supposed to win. You don’t win with an “interim” head coach after firing your head coach 19 games into the season. Definitely not with an interim coach who, before this, was mostly known as a goon who amassed 3,149 penalty minutes in 1,054 games. You don’t win with a team that […]

Movie Review: ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Starring Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown

Posted: May 31, 2019 at 7:34 am   /   Movie Reviews

“Long live the king.” He’s back. Released and set five years after the reboot did over $500 million at the box office, Godzilla: King of the Monsters serves as a sequel and a bridge between the 2014 film, the seminal 2017 Kong: Skull Island, and next year’s Godzilla vs. Kong. Although it is a sequel, […]

St. Louis Blues Hockey: 12 Down, 4 To Go

Posted: May 22, 2019 at 10:56 am   /   St. Louis Blues

When I was 9, my dad took me up to the old Jamestown Mall one weekend afternoon. We’d found out earlier that week that a Blues player was going to be there signing autographs (pretty sure it was Curtis Joseph). I was so excited. I told all my friends at school that week I was […]

Movie Review: ‘John Wick 3: Parabellum’ Starring Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne

Posted: May 17, 2019 at 8:13 am   /   Movie Reviews

Usually, I don’t do this, but the plot of John Wick 3: Parabellum is pretty simple. If you want the full review, skip to the next paragraph. If you really just want an abbreviated but accurate TL;DR – people want to kill John Wick. John Wick does not want them to kill John Wick. A […]

Review: ‘Pokémon: Detective Pikachu’ Starring Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith

Posted: May 10, 2019 at 8:19 am   /   Movie Reviews

If you’ve lived somewhere with internet or tv within the last 25 years, there’s not much of a chance you haven’t heard of the Pokémon phenomenon. If you haven’t, well, you’re not reading this. Seriously, this franchise is a juggernaut. With over 300 million video games sold, a TV show that’s spanned 20 years and […]

Movie Review: ‘Little’ Starring Regina Hall, Issa Rae, Marsai Martin

Posted: April 12, 2019 at 8:41 am   /   Movie Reviews

You ever just know something’s about to happen, but you can’t help but watch? Like a friend who makes terrible dating decisions and is about to make another one. Or a Vikings fan getting ready to watch their kicker attempt a game-winning kick (sorry, Andrew). I didn’t get a great feeling about Little when I […]

Movie Review: ‘Shazam!’ Starring Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer

Posted: April 5, 2019 at 8:36 am   /   Movie Reviews

I have a confession to make. I’m a little burned out on superhero movies. Now, hear me out. It’s not that I don’t enjoy them. They’re still pretty entertaining, and more often than not, I’ll still go to a theater to see them before they come out on Blu Ray. But I no longer really […]

Movie Review: ‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ Starring Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett

Posted: February 22, 2019 at 8:43 am   /   Movie Reviews

Heading to the theater to see the screening of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, two things raced through my mind: Could the movie provide a satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy? and Am I going to die in this pending ice storm that’s supposed to hit tonight? Upon reflection, I can safely say […]

Movie Review: ‘The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part’

Posted: February 8, 2019 at 8:00 am   /   Movie Reviews

I’m a Lego guy. As I wrote about in my review of The Lego Movie, I spent countless hours playing with Legos as I was growing up. Building, destroying, re-building, I’m not ashamed to admit that if I come across a kit nowadays that I like, I have no reservations about buying it and putting […]

Movie Review: ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’

Posted: February 1, 2019 at 8:31 am   /   Movie Reviews

It was supposed to be the war to end all wars, one directly responsible for the loss of over 16 million lives (and indirectly responsible for at least 50 million more). Yet today, it’s all but a forgotten footnote. The last surviving veterans of the war passed away in 2011 and 2012, and its footprint […]
