Stream of consciousness review: True Lies

Welcome back onto the Schwarzenegger train, next stop, an ass kicking. Back with James Cameron too, that has to be a good thing. Tom Arnold!? Good god no. Bill Paxton!? Good god yes. Wait, this is the start of Metal Gear Solid. This is significantly colder than Arnolds last ingress into occupied territory. No speedos […]

Stream Of Consciousness Review: Heathers

Ryder. I ride hard for Ryder. All day. Slater. Christian Slater is admittedly more of a mixed bag. Fantastic in Mr Robot though. I don’t think any movie features croquet quite so heavily.

In defining the underlying cause of asthma it is necessary to understand that it is a […]

Stream Of Consciousness Review: Roadhouse

  I’ve actually seen roadhouse before, and I’m pretty sure I thought it was good. Prove me wrong Swayze. Turquoise bolo tie. Bold. Swayze just brushed off getting stabbed like it was a papercut. Why isn’t autocorrect bothered by “Swayze”? I’ve been headhunted for several jobs while shirtless and performing first aid on myself. Dalton […]
