Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

We’ve seen a ton of versions of ‘King Kong‘ over the decades from the 1933 version to the Jeff Bridges version in the 1970s, and even more recently, the 2005 version that was directed by ‘Lord of the Rings‘ director Peter Jackson. ‘King Kong‘ has been a staple in entertainment and pop culture since he debuted in the early 30s and he is showing no signs of stopping, thanks to Warner Bros.and Legendary Pictures who are taking their cues from Marvel and creating their own universe called the ‘MonsterVerse‘.

Film Review #2: ‘Kong: Skull Island’!

Bad news. Kong: Skull Island isn’t a good movie, but it isn’t a bad one either. It exists in that awful “shrug” territory “Why?” or “I guess that works.”

Lets break it down!

FILM REVIEW: “OPERATION MEKONG”

by Justin Cline on Oct 4th, 2016

operation-mekong_poster_goldposter_com_1

Justin C. here,…

Operation Mekong waits until the final credits roll to inform its audience that the film they’ve just witnessed is based on a true story. I can’t help but feel that this may have been by design as it certainly would have lessened my enjoyment to think that the filmmakers meant for me to believe even for an instant that what I was watching was true.

More than anything else, Mekong is an action movie, but does the element of realism hurt it or help it? Read the rest of this entry »

Good Morning ‘Walking Dead‘ fanatics!!!! I know you were on the edge of your seat like I was last night so lets get to it.  The show starts out with a flashback scene between Michonne and Andrea the previous winter. The camera starts with the chain that is holding Michonne’s armless and toothless walkers. They are in the woods and around a camp fire, warming up food. Andrea is warming up the food while Michonne is checking out the perimeter.  They are chit chatting around the fire and Andrea brings up the fact that Michonne never told her where the walkers came from.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Good news everyone.  Houston native, Wes Anderson’s new film ‘Moonrise Kongdom’ will open the 65th Cannes Film Festival in France.  It’s still uncertain if the film will play in or out of the competition.  I’m betting it will be in the competition.  Cannes this year starts May 16th, and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ not only will open Cannes but will open in French Theatres that same day.

Hi Bryan Here….

There is a new trailer on the run for the (I guess) prequel of the ‘Planet of the Apes’ series called ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes‘.  You can see the first teaser trailer by click HERE.  This new trailer looks amazing.  This situation would be so frightening.  We have not had a good ape/monkey movie in a while.  I wonder if this does really well, if they will do another Kong film or remake ‘Mighty Joe Young’ or ‘Congo’.  Who knows.  But this movie is shaping up nicely.  Can’t wait.

Hi Bryan Here…

So I am sure you have all seen the hit documentary “King of Kong” about achieving the high score of Donkey Kong and the battle of good vs. evil.  I am course speaking about Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe.  To quote my earlier article about this matter, …..”since the documentary where Wiebe beat Mitchell(the champ for highest donkey kong score) , and then Mitchell beating Wiebe for the title back, the newcomer, Hank Chien (a plastic surgeon) defeated Mitchell for the title only to have Mitchell take the title back from Chien.  But then Wiebe stole the title from Chien this past September only to be knocked back down to 2nd place by Chien this past January.  WHHHHEEEEWWWW!!!  This new documentary is about Hank Chien.”  DOCTOR KONG: CUTTING UP THE COMPETITION!!!

Hi Bryan Here…

One of my favorite and I think one of the best documentaries ever made was “King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters”.  It followed two men on their journey to attain the highest score of Donkey Kong.  Knowing that, it really is a story of GOOD VS. EVIL.  But since the documentary where Wiebe beat Mitchell(the champ for highest donkey kong score) , and then Mitchell beating Wiebe for the title back, the newcomer, Hank Chien (a plastic surgeon) defeated Mitchell for the title only to have Mitchell take the title back from Chien.  Bu then Wiebe stole the title from Chien this past September only to be knocked back down to 2nd place by Chien this past January.  WHHHHEEEEWWWW!!!  This new documentary is about Hank Chien.

Steve Wiebe, the school teacher gamer, most popular from the EXCELLENT documentary “King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters” has reclaimed the throne as the #! high score on Donkey Kong.


The official gaming scorekeeping organization known as “Twin Galaxies” just posted Wiebe’s score of  1,064,500 which has knocked asshole Billy Mitchell to the #2 spot.  Wiebe was last #1 in 2007 when he was beaten by Billy Mitchell.


Wiebe said this in an interview:


“Hank Chien is a great person and DK player, so I also feel that he’s capable of taking the title at anytime,” said Wiebe. “I think when I came up short of the record at several live events, many people thought that I just didn’t have it in me anymore. Getting the record back definitely feels good.”


“Being a school teacher, I had been going after the record all summer, which is about a two month period of being off from school,” stated Wiebe. “Basically, I played a game a day and believed it would happen sooner or later. Right around the Fourth of July, I got an inner ear viral infection that caused some vertigo, which is still affecting me a little today. I’m glad I was able to play through it. The day I got the record was essentially the last day of my summer break before returning to school, so it was down to the wire. I remember restarting over about five or six times and then getting a great start that finally led to the record.”


“Mark Kiehl is an amazing DK Junior player,” Wiebe said. “I was able to talk to him a little bit in Iowa, and he’s a great person as well. He’s certainly pushing the score pretty high, so getting the DK Junior record will take some great play if I’m to get it. I eventually plan to get back to playing Junior, but I’m not sure when that will be yet.”


“I’m not surprised at all that the DK title has frequently changed hands of late,” Wiebe continued. “I knew Billy would resurface and I’ve never let go of trying to recapture the record myself. There are a lot more DK kill screen players out there now, so the competition is getting pretty tough. I fully expect the title to keep changing hands until someone knocks it out of the park.”


“I definitley see Billy coming back and I would be very surprised if he didn’t. I don’t know where or when Billy will return, but I’m counting on it.”


Much Much congratulations to Steve Wiebe and his family.


If you have not seen the documentary, “King of Kong” about Wiebe achieving the world record for highest Donkey Kong score.  This is not only a documentary on achieving high scores, but a documentary on good vs. evil.  SERIOUSLY.


It is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.  Click below to purchase it.
