Justified - "Fixer"

My review of the third episode of Justified is up at spinetingler.

Look it over, making sure to point out grammatical errors where you can, right HERE.

Pay no attention to the reference regarding a certain show about four career women and their lovemaking escapades in an urban environment.

The Nerd knows not how that shit got in there...

Il Divo by Paolo Sorrentino

My review of Paolo Sorrentino's Il Divo is up at spinetingler.

You can read about it here.

Your suspicions are correct: this is yet another subtitled film recommendation by your favorite nerd.

But what can I say? If Hollywood starts putting out crime flicks of a similar caliber, my roof-top shouting volume would go up to fucking eleven, cross my black, dehydrated heart.

Breaking Bad - "Caballo Sin Nombre"

My review of episode two of season three of Breaking Bad is up at spinetingler.

Know my thoughts HERE.

I should warn you, dear reader: there is much discussion of an America song in this post.

Proceed at your own risk.

The Ghost Writer by Roman Polanski

My review of the new Roman Polanski film The Ghost Writer is up over at spinetingler.

Learn from my incomparable fucking cinematic insight right fucking HERE.

Or remain ignorant - it's up to you.

Education is a choice. I think Paul Linde said that.

Crime Factory Vol. 2 No. 2

I've got two movie reviews and another Crime Sleeper Double Feature in the latest issue of Crime Factory.

The Crime Sleeper Double Feature is on Uli Edel's The Baader Meinhof Complex and Ole Christian Madsen's Flame and Citron (pages 47-51) while the reviews are for Nicolas Winding Refn's Bronson (118-120) and Scott Teems' That Evening Sun (121-123).

But my shit isn't the only reason to head over HERE.

There's also features by folks like Reed Farrel Coleman and Craig McDonald and fiction by guys like Dave Zeltserman and Ray Banks.

You better believe I'm fucking honored to be in such company.

Print the Legend by Craig McDonald

My review of the latest entry in the Hector Lassiter series is up at spinetingler.

In case you can't read post titles, the name of said Lassiter book is Print the Legend.

The author of said novel is Craig McDonald.

The link for said review is here.

This is historical fiction the way it should be written: with the boring shit left out.

Justified - "Riverbrook"

My review of episode two of Justified is up Spinetingler.

You can see that shit here.

But you can do a lot of things, I suppose. You're on the internet, after all.

The world is your fucking oyster. Your filthy, sad, porn-stuffed oyster.

Breaking Bad - "No Mas"

Season three of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad aired last night and lo-and fucking-behold, yours truly has some opinions on it.

Find out what they are right HERE.

Fucking AMC, man. 99.9% of the time they show nothing but heavily-edited, commercial-diluted, shitty-as-hell movies.

But 0.1% of their schedule is devoted to the two best dramas on television right now: Breaking Bad and Mad Men.

Whatever works, I guess. I'll take it however I can get it.

A Prophet by Jacques Audiard

My review of the French crime flick A Prophet from crime maestro Jacques Audiard is up at spinetingler right now.

Let your one remaining eye drift across that shit HERE.

It's intense stuff, dear reader, and you'd be well fucking served to catch it toot-fucking-sweet.

Do not fear the subtitles - they beat the shit out of dubbing, and don't let anyone tell you different.

Justified - "Fire in the Hole"

My review of the first episode of the new series Justified is up at Spinetingler.

You should check it out HERE - if you've seen the show, that is.

If not, watch the fucking show already.

Elmore Leonard, Timothy Olyphant, and Walton Goggins are all involved for fuck's sake!

Even if it fucking sucked it wouldn't suck, you know what I mean?

44 Inch Chest by Malcolm Venville

My review of Malcolm Venville's 44 Inch Chest is up at Spinetingler.

I'm unfamiliar with director Malcolm Venville's previous shit but it's written by the dudes what pennified Sexy Motherfucking Beast.

Did you just get hard, dear reader?

Well, sorry to say that after this review, your cinerotic enthusiasm will most definitely fucking wane.

Still, check that shit out HERE.

Sleepless by Charlie Huston

My review of the new sci-fi/pre-apocalypse thriller Sleepless is up at Spinetingler Magazine.

Feast your rheumy eyes HERE, dear reader.

I had some definite fucking reservations with this one, but I guess I was prepared for that.

After all, Huston himself warned the reading public it was a change of pace for him via Keith Rawson's kick-ass interview with the man over at bscreview.

Dig that shit HERE.
