Mother! (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern The TV spot for this movie said I’ll “never forget” where I was when I first saw Mother!…but, oh, how I want to forget the whole thing. With few redeeming qualities—long-takes, invisible/smooth cuts, contained setting—Darren Aronofsky’s latest outing had to have been a trip, during the pitch meeting. Let’s explore why that meeting… Read more »

NFL Power Rankings: Week 2

Follow @wolfebltd Football back, y’all. The first week of the National Football League featured a lot of strange moments. From the Patriots getting dominated, to Chicago ALMOST defeating the Falcons, to the Giants falling flat on their faces on Sunday Night Football, nothing was off limits. As you may have noticed last year, the first… Read more »

Trust the Podcast #1 – Bills vs. Jets

Follow @DelReid Follow @wolfebltd The Buffalo Bills wrapped up their first win of the season, in their first game of the season, against the New York Jets a few days ago. The game may not have been the most exciting way to spend a Sunday afternoon but as they say, a win is a win… Read more »

Stephen King’s IT (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern Hello, horror, it’s been a while. You clean up real nice, I see. A departure from the genre’s usual hum-drum, barely-eye-raising antics, Andy Muschietti’s re-adaptation of Stephen King’s benchmark novel is an absolute joy. While not perfect—no film is—this largely-faithful page-to-screen is equally terrifying and charming. Let’s get into it… First of all,… 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 »

    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 »

    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 »

    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 »

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 »

    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 »
