11 Jan 2022 1 minute read 0 comments Great White Snark

I'm not a big drinker of alcohol, generally, but I do enjoy a good ale or pilsner on occasion. The Rhodes Brewing Company (established 2020) has made a pretty heavy red ale, as far as ales go. Fittingly for the area from which it originates, Avalanch...

Some movies we love. Some movies we hate. Even some movies we love to hate, or hate to love. But what about the movies everyone seems to hate that really don't deserve it because all they were trying to do was spread joy and happiness and laughter?...

Japan in a film, or series can always be an attractive motive. I’m sure that, if you think back, you would remember at least one film you liked which was set in Japan. The Last Samurai? Silence? The Grudge? Ringu? There’s a lot of decent stuff out th...
