Booze Finale

Writers’/ producers’ vanity can be a terrible thing and even more so on a series that you really want to like so badly. That’s exactly what happened to Boardwalk Empire. After having finished the cut short fifth season I’m more than ever convinced that the actual product crushed under everyone’s ambition. I totally do get what […]

Booze Failin’

Did you notice? It’s been three weeks now since I finished season three of Boardwalk Empire and only yesterday I managed to put a lid on season four. How’d that happen? Aside from me getting caught up un other things and then not feeling like it, this time I also found myself way too often consciously […]

Booze Singin’

Not worth Giver-ing (a damn)

Yes, I admit, yesterday evening I wasted two hours of my life watching a bad movie. With a good chunk of movies from recent years now trickling through onto free TV, I can at least catch up a little bit on things I missed, not being able to go to the cinema that much nor having […]

Rogue One – a grim (and long) Star Wars Story

Our annual little ritual happened yesterday and so just like every year my brother and me went out to see “that big movie of the year” because it so happens the week between Christmas and New Year’s is about the only time we can actually coordinate things to fall in place. It also helps that […]
