Holy Crap! Judge Reinhold and William Zabka In One Film?!

OK, here are the two biggest problems with this movie: Judge Reinhold and the sibling sub-plot. Nothing against Judge Reinhold, he's a decent enough actor when it comes to lighter fare like fathers inhabiting their sons bodies or flinging coffee into a robbers face but in this film we're expected to believe that Judge Reinhold is an ex-Black Ops Officer? Can't do it; my apologies. Knowing that Judge took this role to pay the rent and get a free trip to Bulgaria makes it a bit more forgivable from his point of view, but the casting director really should have gone for a younger, more athletic B-movie actor, like Antonio Sabato Jr. Sorry Mr. Reinhold, no hard feelings. Things are looking up for good ol' Judge, however, because he's got at least 14 more Santa Clause movies he can do with Tim Allen and Eddie Murphy is trying to revisit a time in his career when he was still relevant by going forward with Beverly Hills Cop IV.

Man Cannot Live By Bread Alone

This post was supposed to have appeared on Monday but, in its infinite wisdom, Blogspot chose not to display it. Therefore you get a fun little Thursday evening post. You're welcome.

While I was playing lots of video games on sabbatical I had to find a suitable yet quick meal to prepare for myself and Future Mrs. Attack Resistance. Her mother had recently purchased a box of Thai Kitchen Original Pad Thai Stir-Fry Rice Noodles With Sauce. It should be noted that ordinarily we avoid these boxed meals and instead opt for food that is as unprocessed as possible, but this was there and I hadn't been to the store in a while so I opted for the easy way out. Was it good? Was it bad? Did we violate anyone's closely held personal values? Read on to find out!

Who You Gonna Call? Vodka Makers!

Today, I'd like to do something a reviewer is never, ever supposed to do: I'm going to endorse a product without ever having tried it.

Some of you may say, "Who cares? Only three people read this thing anyway." To which I can only reply that I know of at least 5 people that read this blog. So suck it. What amazing doodad is out there that would make me say, "YES! BUY IT NOW!" without ever laying eyes on it? What wonderful invention of the human mind could be so mind blowing as to force me to give up what small shred of journalistic integrity I have? Ladies and gentlemen it is a product unlike no other. A concoction that knows no equal. A legal recreational consumable with the single greatest celebrity sponsor in the known world...
