Dumb And Dumber To
Why Jim, Why?

I guess Jim needed a new house…2015 will bring the world the sequel to the hugely successful “Dumb & Dumber”. Why you may ask…
I was wondering the same thing, but as Hal Holbrook said to Charlie Sheen in Oliver Stones “Wall Street”
“Bud, the main thing about money…it makes you do things you don’t want to do.”

The Podcast • Chapter 25
Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood Review
&
Game Of Thrones Discussion

What up yo.

New month, new podcast Oldboy and I sat down in front of the microphones and hit record on my overpriced MacBook Pro to discuss Tarantino’s new film, Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood, and to celebrate the cinematic achievement it is.

We then dive into Martin Scorsese’s new teaser trailer for The Irishman which dropped the previous day and teams Marty back up with Robert De Niro in a film that will be released in theaters and on Netflix come fall.

And finally to wrap it all up, I ask the question I probably should have been more careful to ask, “What did you think of the final season of Game Of Thrones”?

A great battle ensues.

I say the last season was rushed, with flashes of brilliance and laziness. I didn’t realize we were at war until I saw the look on Oldboy’s face change.

He didn’t agree with my assessment, he instead fought on behalf of D&D, hailing the series as a masterpiece…final season included.

This is a raw, uncut 120 minute podcast people…chapter 25 of The Chronicles Of Wes And Oldboy.

Enjoy!

Derek Begins…#4
Fred Schepisi’s
Mr. Baseball

“An arrogant aging ballplayer is traded to a Japanese team and has difficulties adjusting to their cultures and customs.
This movie by far has to be the most underrated on my list. Made in 1992, it featured baseball from a Japanese standpoint…”

A Tragic Loss, Gone Too Soon

Why do we have to lose these actors who have injected our lives with such joy and humor to fully appreciate them?

Bill Paxton passed away today, and like Heath Ledger, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Williams, Carrie Fisher, David Bowie, Prince…it’s too damn soon man. Just tragic.

Love to his family friends and loved ones.

Debbie Reynolds
&
Carrie Fisher
A Tragic Loss For The Family

Update: 12/28/2016: Debbie Reynolds, Carries mother, suffered a stroke and has also passed away.

Carrie Fisher personified the cinematic “Female Heroine” with her immortal portrayal of Princess Leia in the Star Wars film franchise.

I don’t know that she ever openly recognized that she was the quintessential female hero to her millions of adoring fans around the world.
She seemed to feel the role was more of a curse then a privilege.

But young girls around the world recognized it.
Women, men, children around the world recognized it.
And the world of cinema recognized it, was altered forever by it…
And she will be immortalized because of it.

Kurt Cobain
25 Years Gone
The Impact And Legacy

Kurt Cobain ascended the golden ladder, a ladder most will never glimpse.
He he climbed to the very top…and saw a curtain, behind which he always thought would be his salvation.
He reached over the ladder and peaked behind…
And for whatever reason…
After years of imaging the solace he might find….
Whatever Kurt saw back there…
He didn’t want to take another step after that…

He just wanted off the ladder by any means necessary.
