BLTD Podcast #104 – You’re Firedcast

Follow @BJWilsonWGR Follow @wolfebltd The Buffalo Sabres sent shockwaves throughout the National Hockey League when they fired not only head coach Dan Bylsma but also general manager Tim Murray – a drastic change for a rebuilding franchise. Brayton Wilson and Ryan Wolfe got together for BLTD #104 to discuss the changes to the Buffalo Sabres… Read more »

Gifted (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern I saw this film at a home-town cinema house in my city, even though the larger chains would be getting it, too, I found out. I’m glad I went; other than the change of scenery from the larger theatres I frequent, this film fits the independent cinema atmosphere. I’m happy to support smaller… Read more »

Going in Style (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern A remake of a 1979 film of the same name (starring George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg), Going in Style is a fun and poignant film about friendship, family, and taking what one is owed. Most of the build-up of the film is time spent constructing our three main characters, played by… Read more »

Quick Hits: Buffalo Sabres’ End of Season Wrap

Follow @wolfebltd And with that, another playoff-less season is in the books. 6 times in 6 years, we have no playoff hockey in Buffalo – kind of burns, eh? While it is the 6th straight playoff-less season in Buffalo, we’re truly only at the end of Year 2 of the Rebuild (Trust the Process™). It… Read more »

Ghost in the Shell (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern You know that old “Where’s the beef?” commercial for Wendy’s? Perfect analogy for this movie here, I feel. I’m not going to totally destroy the thing; there are some things about it that I admire, but I’ll get to that later on. I’m a bad-news-first kind of guy, so I’ll say that piece… Read more »

The Zookeeper’s Wife (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern With the rash of World War II and Holocaust-related films we’ve gotten in the past few decades—and will continue to get for a long time, no doubt—it’s good that, very once in a while, we see that turbulent time recounted through the eyes of a civilian. I’ve no problem with war movies—I’m rather… Read more »

T2 Trainspotting (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern Sequels are always a toss-up. When said sequel hits theatres two decades after the original film, it’s even more of a gamble for the filmmakers. Thank God for niche audiences and die-hard fans—willing to support their favorite franchises, regardless of the situation. I first saw Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting (1996) in college, and I… Read more »

Power Rangers (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern Like my beloved Transformers films that have preceded this release, such a fan favorite’s big-budget transition to the silver screen is seamless and long-overdue; with a six-movie arc in the works, we won’t be seeing the end of the ever-evolving Rangers universe anytime soon. With a sick soundtrack to boot—where even the remixes… Read more »

BLTD Podcast #103 – Lifecast

Follow @MrLgPerez Follow @wolfebltd After a hiatus, Luis Perez and Ryan Wolfe are back together on the GERE Radio Network with the latest Better Live Than Dead Podcast, entitled the “Lifecast”. Ryan talks about his trip to Las Vegas and getting engaged, while Luis tells us about how unlucky his 2017 has been so far…. Read more »

Quick Hits: Buffalo Sabres vs. Islanders / vs. Maple Leafs

Follow @wolfebltd Hear that loud, methodical ticking? That just so happens to be the time in this Buffalo Sabres’ season working its way toward zero. I’m going to keep it straight with you for a minute – I did not watch more than 10 minutes of the Sabres/Islanders game. Are you be upset? I didn’t think so…. Read more »
