Why Tom Hiddleston Can’t Love an Old Lady; And Other Musings of a Gen Xer

I spent a good bit of last weekend in the Emergency Veterinary hospital.  My one-year old rescue dog, Loki (of course he is named after the god of mischief!) had developed a nasty GI problem; most likely due to the fact he eats anything he can fit into his mouth! For all the animal lovers reading this I will assuage your fears. Loki seems to be doing fine. At least he is back to his […]

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!

THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS, 2001
THE FIRST RACE

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…

Rest In Peace Paul Walker…
