I spent a good bit of last weekend in the Emergency Veterinary hospital.

For all the animal lovers […]Continue readingMore Tag
That’s what watching this film was doing to me…it was a beautiful love letter to Joy Division, and when the film ended…I went on a Joy Division frenzy for a few months.
Some movies have those magic scenes that give you chills. That speak to your soul. To your heart.
The scene below…pure magic I wanted to share with you.
What up yo. Just wanted to say Merry Christmas to you all. Send you and yours love this holiday. Voices has been radio silent since the birth of my daughter, I know. But what can I say… Fatherhood is my priority now. Alexandria is my priority now. She’s my life force. But Voices will never […]Continue readingMore Tag

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.

I just watched all the Fast & Furious films.
It was sad to see Paul Walker in his youth, in his prime…part of a monster that started as a single bad ass movie
The tribute to him at the end of Furious 7 was beautiful
I felt that, in my opinion, my favorites of the 8 films were as follows:
8: The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
7: Fast & Furious
6: 2 Fast 2 Furious
5: The Fate of the Furious
4: Fast Five
3: Furious 7
2: Fast & Furious 6
1: The original…
THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS
Rest In Peace Paul Walker…

Simply one of the finest actors to ever grace the silver screen.

Part of that landscape was Oliver Stone’s groundbreaking controversial visionary odyssey and assault on the senses …1994’s

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.
