Let me start by saying, Star Wars runs through my blood. It is one of the things in this world that will never leave my side, no matter what...
If Netflix keeps pumping out shows like this, my job is going to get easier and easier. This was another experience that was unlike any I have had before. OZARK was a hell of a ride and easily ended up being a new favorite of mine. I could tell from the jump that I was... Continue Reading →

As I have been waiting a long time for a show like MINDHUNTER, I have also really been long awaiting a gritty, violent, character driven western series. Netflix has delivered again. GODLESS is a phenomenal series that is fueled by a well-executed vision from the creatives and the actors that were involved. Jeff Daniels. Jeff... Continue Reading →
Which Jumanji movie is better, the original or the remake? According to RottenTomatoes, the answer is pretty clear cut. The original has a score of just 50% from the critics and 62% from the audience while the remake has a 76% from the critics and a 90% from the audience. The original was released in...

Suddenly, it transforms into a bright, earthy, springlike sensation that awakens your senses in a beautiful balancing act of flawless flavor. Or, you take a sip of beer and the bitterness makes you cringe in disgust. You reach for... Continue Reading →
"Cool idea, exciting plot - but poorly executed." Bright: 2.5 out of 5 As if I needed any more reassurance that one day I can sell a characterless script for 3.5 mil and post up somewhere in Cali and golf for the next decade. That may be a little harsh but what Max Landis finished... Continue Reading →
In this episode we talk about the date night vote and the favorite Netflix series of the Crafthouse Cinema Society, the 12 most rotten headlines of 2017, some India Pale Ales, Bloodsport, Spiceworld, and The Shape of Water -- plus, we play a blind taste test game where Kate has to identify which IPA is... Continue Reading →
Much like Pan's Labyrinth, The Shape of Water combines the fantasy world of monsters with the real world of humans in a dark, dramatic, and beautiful way. It is about the romance between a mute cleaning lady and a magical water creature being held in the government facility that she tends to. Think Beauty and... Continue Reading →
So when I started this blog series and began watching these Netflix series at an unhealthy rate, I knew I would come across some great shows that I would be happy to recommend to you all. But after binging this specific series, I am almost at a loss for words. Which isn’t necessarily a good... Continue Reading →
My wife Kate and I had just finished a family filled holiday weekend and were back on our own. We were about to see The Shape of Water by Guillermo del Toro and spirits were high. I leaned over the bar to look down into their fridge. Hidden down in the corner behind all of... Continue Reading →
I heard a Junkfood Cinema podcast about this movie and subsequently found out that my wife owned it. Game over. There is a real argument to be made for the quality of this movie. There is some kind of Monty Python-esque thing going on here. I genuinely laughed out loud a few times. It doesn't... Continue Reading →
I had one of these while recording the podcast. Words can't describe how much I enjoy this beer. Instead watch this video to know how I feel about it... Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. - Our Story from Sierra Nevada on Vimeo. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale: 5 out of 5
I agree with my brother on most of his points here. I think Stranger Things 2 was sensational. My only disagreement is that I enjoyed season 1 more than season 2. I enjoyed getting to know those iconic characters. In season 2, we do get to meet a few new players, but they were not... Continue Reading →
I drank this one over Christmas break and to be honest, so much has happened since then that I am having trouble remembering anything that stood out about it. I know it was hoppy, but so is every fucking IPA on the planet. I remember that I thought to myself, "Damn, Southern Tier just always... Continue Reading →
"Breakout the popcorn, crack open a beer, and turn off your brain. Bloodsport is so bad it's great." Bloodsport: 2.5 out of 5 This is a tricky one for me. How do you rank a movie that you loved because of how bad it was? Bloodsport was Jean-Claude Van Damme's breakout film. It is basically Enter the Dragon... Continue Reading →
"Flavorful IPA that pairs great with the binge-worthy Netflix western mini-series, Godless." Go West! IPA: 3.5 out of 5 I've been reading about the psychological component of flavor. Flavor is a combination of taste, aroma, color, clarity, texture, and psychology. Flavor is subjective. If you're in a bad mood or have had a bad experience... Continue Reading →
In episode 4 we discuss the top 3 Stars Wars movies of all time according to members of the Crafthouse Cinema Society, the top Christmas movies of all time, and we play a bizarre movie facts game with our special guest Patrick Hilton!
“If you don’t like The Santa Clause, you can go fuck yourself.” The Santa Clause: 4 out of 5 This is the first written review from my beautiful, intelligent, foul-mouthed wife -- perhaps better known as the co-host of the Crafthouse Cinema podcast. The Santa Clause was directed by John Pasquin, who seems to almost... Continue Reading →
"My taste buddies never gave up on the Sculpin and by the end they pushed through for me. They rolled with the punches long enough to begin enjoying the challenge." Sculpin IPA: 3 out of 5 For Kate's birthday, we kept it classy and shared an entire hot-and-ready pizza from Little Caesar's. Afterwords, we settled... Continue Reading →
