So, considering the fact that I have finally decided to write the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time… Which is coming soon… I decided to revisit one of my favorite posts of all time: My Favorite Movies of All Time. Here is the thing, opinions change, ideas change, and ultimately my tastes have changed. Some movies have become more prevelent in my mind. Some… Some have fallen off the board altogether. When I originally created my Top 25 list… I completely snubbed a few of my favorite movies due to good ole fashion forgetfulness. As such, movies like Die Hard and Reservoir Dogs have made and rectified the list. So with that said, please enjoy my Top 25 FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME!
Shaun of the Dead
The Lion King
Strangers on a Train
The Dark Knight
La Finestra di Fronte
Howl’s Moving Castle
The Guardians of the Galaxy Continue reading “Tanner’s Revised Top 25 Favorite Movie of All Time”
Just like everyone else in the world, I love me some Mad Max: Fury Road. Will I go as far as naming my son and/or daughter after the characters from the movie? Well, I just have to say that Furiosa Vuvalini and Max Nux Bivens will have the most badass names in all of preschool. But I digress, the point is that whenever you have any type of big summer blockbuster, you typically have an absolutely deplorable video game tie in to come plopping out onto the markets like the festering turd of the most rancid of fuck boys. These games tend to be forgettable, horrendous, and on par with someone shitting on your TV screen then demanding you pay money for the privilege of owning their shit. Needless to say, I do not think very highly of these movie tie-in games. But, thanks to Mad Max, I have to say that my opinion… Has barely changed. The video game tie in to Mad Max is leaps and bounds better than the normal movie tie-in game… That does not mean that it is anything better than generic.
Mad Max is a prequel (UGH) to the movie and tells the story of Max traveling through this desolate wasteland that was once the Outback of Australia also known by its ‘cool name’ the Plains of Silence. Just like the movie, Max’s car is quickly stolen by the War Boys after he is captured by Immortan Joe’s other son, Scaborus Scrotus. Max manages to escape Scrotus and makes his way through the desolate wasteland with a new dog and a new friend in Chumbucket in tow.
The game follows Max through the wasteland as he liberates various leaders and vows revenge on Scrotus as he sits in his own castle in Gastown. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Mad Max”
On this episode of Nerdiest Talk Show on Earth, I talk about the Summer Blockbusters that have come out thus far and where we can possibly go from here when August runs around.
My God… That was fucking amazing… When I say the following statement, I want it to be known that it is said with absolutely no hyperbole. I honestly believe that Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the greatest action movies to ever be made in the history of cinema. This movie… I can’t say enough about this movie. I feel like words do not adequately do it justice. It is a movie that takes all the best parts of what makes action movies great and discards all the worthless shit that people cannot stand. This is a movie that will never in a million years be nominated for an Academy Award, seeing as how the Academy doesn’t like movies like this. But this is easily going to be one of, if not THE, best movie of 2015 and one of the best movies of the 2010’s. It is simply phenomenal. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Mad Max: Fury Road”
