NFL Power Rankings – Week 12

Follow @wolfebltd Another week is in the books – football fans have had themselves a good week of football to watch. Who doesn’t love watching a rookie who has no business starting and throwing five interceptions? *sobbing* I MEAN I LOVE FOOTBALL, MAN.

Justice League (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern I’m just going to come right out and say it: I’ve always been more of a sucker for Marvel than DC. That said, I know Marvel has had their flukes, but (more attributable to Disney’s bottomless wallet, I’d wager) they’ve always had their formula down; when Iron Man came out in 2009—you could… Read more »

Stranger Things – Season Two Review

Follow @theREELevankern No television premiere has had me this excited. Ever. The return of Stranger Things on Netflix has been all anyone’s talked about for the last six months, and it’s finally here! It’s clear that the Duffer Brothers haven’t lost the vision that they set out with, during season one; a lot of the… Read more »

Trust the Podcast #10 – Bills vs. Saints

Follow @DelReid Follow @wolfebltd Trust the Podcast is back on the air with another week of Bills analysis but this week, things are a little different. With the breaking news of Nathan Peterman getting his first NFL start over Tyrod Taylor, surely there was more than enough to talk about. That doesn’t even begin to… Read more »

NFL Power Rankings – Week 11

Follow @wolfebltd The good teams continue to win and the bad teams continue to lose – what a novel concept! These mutually exclusive events have created a bit of a logjam throughout our weekly power rankings. Either way, jump below and take a look to see where your favorite tackle football franchise ranks this week.

Murder on the Orient Express (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern When a movie kicks off with visuals that blur the line between naturally-shot and digitally-enhanced, you know you’re in for something special. The Harry Potter franchise was the first to do this, in my recorded memory, and continues to do so with its Fantastic Beasts spin-off films (yes, multiple; Warner Bros. is definitely… Read more »

Joywave Kicks Off Tour in Style

Follow @wolfebltd Rochester’s own Joywave kicked off their month-long, 21 city tour in style on Saturday night. Anthology played host to Joywave, Kopps, The Aces and The Demos. According to their Facebook page, Anthology is “a restored multi-level auto warehouse in the historic East End district”. This venue is a very nice addition to a Rochester-area… Read more »

NFL Power Rankings – Week 10

Follow @wolfebltd Heading into Week 10, the Philadelphia Eagles hold serve and continue to look very impressive in the process. Carson Wentz continues to look like a surefire MVP candidate as well. The only issue? The dreaded bye week. They need to maintain momentum moving forward. A quick side note: Continue to trust the process,… Read more »

Trust the Podcast #9 – Bills at Jets

Follow @DelReid Follow @wolfebltd The playoff momentum train came to a screeching halt last Thursday night, when the Buffalo Bills faceplanted against the New York Jets. Del Reid and Ryan Wolfe are back to try and make sense of what exactly went wrong on Thursday (spoiler: almost everything) and where the Bills go from here…. Read more »

From Greek Freak to Greek God: The Ascension of Giannis Antetokounmpo

Follow @9pointplay Put the NBA on notice. The future is here, and outcries of  “the sky is the limit” are ringing  through the air. The six-foot-eleven-inch small forward/point guard/positionless wonder of Athens, Greece is on full display. It doesn’t take statistics to see that Giannis Antetokounmpo (pronounced ah-deh-do-KUN-bo, if you’re still struggling with it) is… Read more »

  • NFL Power Rankings – Week 9

    Follow @wolfebltd What another weird week of football in the NFL! Buffalo continues to be good (thank the good football gods) and apparently Deshaun Watson is the truth. We’ve got New England apparently hitting their stride right before the bye week, while Kansas City got back to their winning ways. We are headed toward the… Read more »

  • HallowRewind Review – Tales of Halloween (2015)

    Follow @theREELevankern The vignette (anthology) style is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Relegated mostly to the horror-slasher satire genre, this mode of storytelling has given us such jewels as 2016’s Holidays (which is still on Netflix), Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat from 2007, The ABCs of Death—along with its sequel—as well as ones I’ve… Read more »

  • Suburbicon (2017) – Film Review

    Follow @theREELevankern All the good things about this movie are in the trailer. If you’ve seen the trailer, you’ll know what I mean. From that trailer, I gathered this movie would be a typical Brothers Coen film—a dark comedy, with a little social commentary, maybe an obnoxiously-contrived sub-plot. This movie had all that…but not in… Read more »

  • The Snowman (2017) – Film Review

    Follow @theREELevankern A slow-paced, formulaic whodunit crime-thriller, Tomas Alfredson’s The Snowman is…exactly what I thought it would be. Straight-faced and “by-the-book” (pun intended), this movie doesn’t bring anything new to the table, and loses points because of it; the 23% MetaCritic score on IMDb is no accident. We open with some exposition—a troubled youth, and… Read more »

  • NFL Power Rankings – Week 7

    Follow @wolfebltd Pittsburgh dealt Kansas City their first loss of the season. Not a lot of people expected that, especially after the Steelers roller-coaster of a season so far. The Chiefs found themselves somewhat exposed in Week 6 but they still stand tall atop the BLTD NFL Power Rankings.
