Friday Nineties – 1996 – Fargo

My favorite movie of all time was made by the Coen brothers.  That movie is Raising Arizona and in my mind the movie is perfect.  Every scene, every line, every everything in that movie is perfect perfect perfect.  It is the best movie they ever made. And so is Fargo. The Coen’s love kidnappings.  I…

Friday Nineties – 1991 – Necessary Roughness

Did you ever think:  Damn I wish someone would make a football movie with Scott Bakula, Jason Bateman, Kathy Ireland and Sinbad?  Well forget it.  It’s been done, man.  In 1991, a ridiculously awesome movie called Necessary Roughness featured all of the above.  AND, as you can see from the banner pic, it also featured…

Get Out of My Mind, Acura

Friday Nineties Reborn

So now that we are on year six of Friday Nineties and I have, for the first time in five years, not panicked like a freak trying to figure out which song to do.  It’s strangely worrisome.  Or at least it was until I panicked because I didn’t know what the hell else to do. …

Snipers: Hide and Seek where Someone Dies

If you are looking for me to wade into the various controversies around the movie American Sniper you can forget it.  I don’t know whether being a sniper is good or bad or whether the dude was a liar or not.  I will say that his being dead sucks and I sort of hope that the…
