Regrets...I've had a few

Regrets...I've had a few
I remember watching The View a few years ago (Hey, there’s regret #1: Had a DVR season pass for The View), and I remember Whoopi Goldberg saying that she had no regrets in her life. None. Whoopi had lived her life regret-free, to which I call bullshit. I mean, maybe some of us might be... Read more »

Dead Draw premiering at San Diego Film Festival
For the past several years, our friend Brian Klemesrud has been working on his film Dead Draw–a heist film shot during the Polar Vortex of 2014, kind of Reservoir Dogs meets The Thing starring Billy from Ally McBeal. John (Man Hammervision) is a co-producer on it, which is the official connection to our blog, but... Read more »

Hammervision you can hear!

This is just a quick post to let you know that John sat down with the gentlemen of CinemaJaw to talk about the upcoming slate of fall movies. You should listen!

What's your end of summer song?

What's your end of summer song?
I never realized I had one until just now. Yesterday Lainey Gossip posted a Salon article in which the writer said he listens to Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer” once every August to signal the start of fall. Lainey added that her end of summer song is “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from the Dirty Dancing... Read more »

What are your 7 favorite films?

What are your 7 favorite films?
Why seven? I don’t know. Seven’s the number, man. Also, Twitter says so. For the past few days, Twitter has been hash-tagging up a storm: #fav7films, #fav7pies, you name it.

This post isn't perfect, but...
I just finished watching Stranger Things on Netflix, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was a lot of fun and very suspenseful. It’s rare these days for me to find a show that I am excited to keep watching (see also: The Night Of on HBO. Wow). There are a lot of “good” shows out there... Read more »

Best Game of Thrones Trivia Team Names

Best Game of Thrones Trivia Team Names
The only thing I like better than actually competing in trivia competitions is coming up with names for trivia teams. (Sometimes I’m too clever by half, though. Keep it simple, Jules! People love puns! Don’t overthink it. I may get a chuckle out of “DJ Ser Illyn Payne” or “My Other Patronus is a Direwolf,”... Read more »
