THE REAL DOCTOR (Chapter ?) Draft Written by Alex Gross (copyright 2019) Doctor Thomas Fenton wasn’t a real doctor. Not really. He called himself “doctor,” signed documents as “Doctor,” and introduced himself to his second, and third wife as “doctor,” but he wasn’t really a doctor at all. It bothered him of course, that he… Continue reading Space Force 6 (Chapter Excerpt)
Disney Pre-9/11 Video Vault: The Mighty Ducks Franchise
It's been almost 23 years since we last cheered on the District Five, Junior Goodwill Team USA, Eden Hall Mighty Ducks and the country is worse off for it. In 1992, The Mighty Ducks kicked off a string of Disney children's sports films--which were all basically rip-offs of The Bad News Bears--which almost never happened. When NHL… Continue reading Disney Pre-9/11 Video Vault: The Mighty Ducks Franchise
Maybe our relationship with video games isn’t so simple
Every time a seemingly random act of violence occurs, our brains rely on social and cultural clues to bring some sense of reason to what is potentially unreasonable. Our brains, however, have another natural response to contradicting stimuli or irrational behavior; and that's called "cognitive dissonance." Cognitive dissonance occurs when one is aware that something… Continue reading Maybe our relationship with video games isn’t so simple

The Wizarding World of Wizard World Philadelphia
https://www.instagram.com/p/ByvNkpyj9oO/ Perhaps it's because I'm getting older and more prone to daydream about being a father, or maybe my perception of the comic con crowd is actually legitimate, but it seems to me that the annual Wizard World Comic Con event in Philadelphia is becoming increasingly targeted toward children. As it should be. The weekend-long… Continue reading The Wizarding World of Wizard World Philadelphia
The ‘Nanette’ Delusion
(The following editorial is a matter of opinion. The author has no inside knowledge of the subject and all thoughts herein are purely speculative in nature.) Hannah Gadsby, the Australian performance artist masquerading as a comedienne, rose to international prominence through her interminably turgid Netflix special, "Nanette." The hubris gained from being suddenly world-famous has turned Gadsby… Continue reading The ‘Nanette’ Delusion
The Curious Case of Taylor Alison Swift
I've been a fan of Taylor Swift's since September 13th, 2009. Most people would lie to you and say "I've been a fan since the very beginning," but not me. This was a very specific date when something very significant happened. Less than a year after America had elected its first black President and Taylor… Continue reading The Curious Case of Taylor Alison Swift

The Last Jedi: Most Divisive ‘Star Wars’ Ever?
As an unapologetic Star Wars apologist, I feel that we need to get several things straight right away regarding a personal and a public response to this latest trilogy installment, The Last Jedi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j78oe2QB7X4 Let's start with the personal. With the unquestionable exception of the Wookiee-related sections of the Star Wars Holiday Special, I can watch anything in… Continue reading The Last Jedi: Most Divisive ‘Star Wars’ Ever?
A totally biased review of Taylor Swift’s ‘reputation’
On November 10, Taylor Swift had the physical release for her 6th studio album, "reputation." I remember the day for two reasons; one because I rushed out to buy the album (twice) in order to move up in the priority list for Reputation Tour tickets on Ticketmaster...and two, because it was released on the 10-year anniversary of the… Continue reading A totally biased review of Taylor Swift’s ‘reputation’
Disney Pre-9/11 Video Vault: Hocus Pocus
It's been far too long since the last Disney Pre-9/11 Video Vault--last November, actually! Not to pat myself on the back too much, but I think I picked the perfect film to cover this time around. Disney has recently announced its plan to remake a favorite amongst Millennials specifically for the Disney Channel. But isn't every pre-9/11 Disney… Continue reading Disney Pre-9/11 Video Vault: Hocus Pocus
Is Philly’s Octavius Catto Monument a Warning?
Despite being oversaturated with historic monuments, murals, structures, and artifacts in the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and specifically the city of Philadelphia, it is endlessly troubling how detached our citizens seem to be from that history. Recently, a small, but nevertheless obnoxious, group of individuals led by Councilwoman-at-Large and Asian spirit who kills you seven… Continue reading Is Philly’s Octavius Catto Monument a Warning?
Prophets of Rage is a Cringe Masterpiece
You may have already forgotten (good for you) that the "rap rock supergroup" Prophets of Rage formed last year featuring most of Rage Against the Machine/AudioSlave, two members of Public Enemy, and B-Real of Cypress Hill. The amalgamation of middle-aged artists who have never written a good song in their 30+ years in the industry (with the possible exception of… Continue reading Prophets of Rage is a Cringe Masterpiece
Philly Combats History with SJW Propaganda
Yesterday, a publicly funded organization called Monument Lab unveiled its latest Fall installment at Dilworth Park in Center City Philadelphia. The "monument" is an 800 lb. statue of an afro pick topped with a "Black Power" fist...because a slogan and symbol associated with African American terrorist groups like The Black Panthers is seen by the social… Continue reading Philly Combats History with SJW Propaganda
Your Hot Take on Statues is Garbage
Ask yourself a question. What moral authority do you have over your neighbor? If your answer is anything other than "None, whatsoever," we have a serious problem on our hands. We live in an environment right now where large sections of our populous and governing bodies, regardless of intention, are both shameless and authoritarian. Shameless, through… Continue reading Your Hot Take on Statues is Garbage

A study which, on its own, would be at least vaguely interesting, turned into a new accusation of "whitewashing" history through nothing other than...white stone.

‘Auto Shop’ Director’s Statement
Throughout my career as an independent filmmaker, I've maintained two philosophies: write and produce what you know, and only what you feel you can manage completely autonomously. I've seen many filmmakers--to varying success--bite off far more than they can chew; producing high concept action/horror films for relatively no budget, relying on the "Robert Rodriguez" method… Continue reading ‘Auto Shop’ Director’s Statement
1990 to Now: A Perspective on Horror Films by the Decade, Part 1
There are so many reasons to be a fan of horror movies right now.

John Squires of Bloody Disgusting reported back on February 6 that five out of the top 10 highest-grossing… Continue reading 1990 to Now: A Perspective on Horror Films by the Decade, Part 1
I’d Like to Buy the World a Pepsi
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dA5Yq1DLSmQ In the latest example of "dipshit social justice grandstanding" the bewildered and misguided Left have managed to get Pepsi (the sugar-water you get when the restaurant doesn't have Coke-brand sugar-water) to pull their latest long-form advertisement from the Interwebz. The ad, to anyone with a fucking brain in their skull, mimics the sentiment of the classic-but-cringe 1971 Coca… Continue reading I’d Like to Buy the World a Pepsi
How far will Lady Gaga go on Superbowl Sunday?
After all of the hope and praying for an objectively superior Superbowl LI performance by Adele (or Taylor Swift, or whoever), it was announced back in September 2016 that Lady Gaga would be taking the field for the Halftime Show; or, more accurately, the taking the fucking roof. Despite the totally legitimate fears from her staff, Gaga remains confident that… Continue reading How far will Lady Gaga go on Superbowl Sunday?

There are times when the internet consumes your existence and there is no turning back.

Before I begin we will get this out of… Continue reading The Second Time Around: Re-Watching Star Wars Episodes I, II, and III

It has been discovered that the producer of a popular theatrical… Continue reading Could it be? A Hamilton Inauguration?

Obligatory Ranking of ‘Black Mirror’ Episodes from OK to OMG
As I'd mentioned in a previous article, Black Mirror--the so-far 13-episode long cinematic series on Channel 4 and Netflix respectively--has quickly became a favorite of mine due to its thematic elements, style, and ability to fuck my shit up royally for a few days at a time.

Fascination with Madness: Thoughts on The Weeknd
Admittedly…The Weeknd wasn’t on my radar until reading the Philadelphia Inquirer Music Critic Dan DeLuca’s article on the Canadian singer’s upcoming headlining performance the Sunday of the 2015 Budweiser Made in America Festival.

Star Wars Goes Rogue
When Disney ripped the Star Wars universe from the cold dead hands of George Lucas, many were afraid of the franchise's future. Those people were wrong. There are plenty of times Disney has made epic and costly mistakes, but they typically come in the form of a John Carter or Lone Ranger. Typically, Disney's misfires are attempts at future… Continue reading Star Wars Goes Rogue

Who’s Ready for Another Wolverine?
How many Wolverine stand-alone movies have there been? Dear god, this will only be three? It feels like so many more.

There's… Continue reading Who’s Ready for Another Wolverine?
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Photos Released
Disney has been having varying success with its live-action recreations of classic animated films. The Jungle Book was phenomenal; so much so that director Jon Favreau has since been tasked with bringing a "live-action" version of The Lion King to theaters. I say "live-action" in quotes because it would technically just be realistic animation, as there are no humans… Continue reading Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Photos Released

Star Trek: The Borg are Back in Town
Ever since J.J. Abrams put a hard reboot on the Star Trek franchise way back in the year of our Lord, 2009 (tried to calculate the stardate, but it's all meaningless nonsense.

Disney Pre-9/11 Video Vault: BLANK CHECK

31 Reasons to See Rob Zombie’s 31
I decided to do this listicle as a personal challenge to myself. Full disclosure, Rob Zombie has become a bit much and his films have essentially jumped the sharknado. House of 1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects gave us a taste of something new and interesting--a modern take on the B-Horror flick. But now that the genre has… Continue reading 31 Reasons to See Rob Zombie’s 31
The Case for Z-Nation
It appears Syfy has discovered a formula for making bad things good. There are four Sharknado movies – four. In fact, Sharknado 2 received the highest ratings ever for a Syfy original movie. It’s bizarre how that happens, and perhaps you saw one of those and chuckled. So why not give a show with a… Continue reading The Case for Z-Nation

It may seem like I'm sitting on a fantastic wire fence of curmudgeonry between Ironysville and the Borough of Hypocrisy by writing an article about the horrors of fanatical stans on Twitter.

Negan By Nature: The Case for Chad
Ever since Season 6 of The Walking Dead came to a close almost a lifetime ago, for all we know, fans have been speculating about which one of their dearest favorite cast members will be grotesquely bludgeoned to death by Negan's barbed bat, Lucille.
