Rough Night (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern I didn’t laugh out loud once during this movie. A few chuckles, but nothing serious. Walking in, I expected—as was advertised in the trailer—a Weekend At Bernie’s-style comedy. Walking out…well, that’s a different story. I’ll include a link to the trailer below, and also to a video uploaded by heavy-weight YouTube reviewer and… Read more »

BLTD Podcast #106 – The Draftcast

Follow @BJWilsonWGR Follow @wolfebltd A busy week of hockey is ahead of us, which means it is time to take a look at what might happen! Brayton Wilson and Ryan Wolfe get together on the 106th episode of the BLTD Podcast to discuss the Buffalo Sabres’ hiring of Phil Housley as head coach, the upcoming… Read more »

It Comes At Night (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern A24 is the new gold standard for independent horror-thrillers, hands down. Like their critically-acclaimed 2015 film, The Witch (stylized, The VVitch), this film is beautifully-shot. The filmmakers chose to focus on chiaroscuro (low-key lighting that causes a lot of a shot to be engulfed in shadow and darkness), and use slow-tracks and long-shot… Read more »

The Mummy (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern Properties based on properties based on properties. This is the future of Hollywood, folks—the endless recycling of once-popular titles for a new generation, because we’ve (for the most part) run out of new and creative ideas. Within our lifetime, both Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings may fall victim to this… Read more »

2017 NBA Finals Preview: Clash of the Titans – Part III

Follow @9pointplay For the third time in as many years, the Golden State Warriors will face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. This was the expected outcome from the moment last season ended, despite the fact that a third consecutive matchup has never happened before. The Cavs retained the best player in the world,… Read more »

Baywatch (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern Paramount just loves to throw their cash around. Sure, they can afford it; with such flagship franchises as my beloved Transformers—and their celluloid juggernaut director, Michael Bay—the studio couldn’t care less if a film they put out is a critical canner or not. As long as people flock to see their movies, it’s… Read more »

BLTD Podcast #105 – The Antipincast

Follow @BJWilsonWGR Follow @wolfebltd Brayton Wilson and Ryan Wolfe are back to discuss the Buffalo Sabres (finally) signing KHL free agent defenseman Victor Antipin. The guys also discuss the firing of Dan Lambert and how the organization can replace him to restore the synergy between Buffalo and Rochester. Being days away from the Stanley Cup… 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 »

  • 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 »

  • Hail To The Chief: Malcolm Brogdon’s Rookie Rise

    Follow @9pointplay Great nicknames are something of a lost art in today’s sports world. Many players are known simply by initials, including Kevin Durant, Isaiah Thomas, and Paul George. Others are based on simple physical observations, such as James Harden (The Beard) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (The Greek Freak). Even some strong nicknames, such as Joel… Read more »

    Follow @wolfebltd I am totally going to cop out here and give you all a minimal recap from last week’s game. I missed all of last week’s games, only catching highlights from the Sin City – more on that below. If you already hadn’t known from watching last week though – Jack Eichel is REALLY good,… Read more »

  • Life (2017) – Film Review

    Follow @theREELevankern It’s hard not to compare this movie to the masterpiece that is Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979). I don’t want to knock this film entirely; for a good chunk of the film, I was on the edge of my seat, and the body horror aspect is really ramped up from its 1979 inspiration, but…an… Read more »

  • The Belko Experiment (2017) – Film Review

    Follow @theREELevankern I’m torn about this piece. Now, before that statement completely turns you off to the idea of going to see this movie, let me explain myself… I guess I should start by saying that this film is, as advertised, rated a very hard “R” for a reason. This is a gore-fest unlike any… Read more »

  • Quick Hits: Buffalo Sabres at Sharks / at Kings / at Ducks

    Follow @wolfebltd Things couldn’t have started any worse on the final West Coast trip of the 2016-17 NHL season for the Buffalo Sabres. Buffalo took an early lead, thanks to Jack Eichel being a wizard. 20th goal of the season, which is a big deal because Eichel became the 2nd Buffalo Sabres player to record two 20 goal seasons before his age 21 season. Not… Read more »
