Cocktails and Classics: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

Not gonna lie, I love this movie despite all its flaws and issues. I don’t care who knows it.

Cocktails and Classics: Teen Wolf

Remember the angsty teen drama that was all dark and looked like Twilight….yah me neither. Good thing that’s not what I’m talking about. Teen Wolf, the 1985 classic starring Michael J. Fox, was a favorite of mine when I was younger. Fun fact, it was filmed before Back to the Future, but released after. They … [Read more…]

Truth Vs. Tropes in Video Games (and everything else) Part 7: Boob Armor

Once again, the internet is alive with the sound of outrage (really a perpetual state of being at this point).
