Smetchland Reviews: Lost

March 21, 2010

Let’s be honest, tv dramas are stupid, I mean what is the point really? In my entire life, there have been only 2 i bothered to watch: Lost and Battlestar Galactica. Go figure, they had to be sci-fi.

To my amazement the board could be pulled back and forth on top of the rolling triangles and had no up or down movement. (more…)

Movie Ratings Insufficient

January 9, 2009

Movies rating systems don’t go far enough. “R” could mean just about anything imaginable might happen in the movie. Sure, you may get a somewhat obscured view of genitalia or the acting is unrealistic, or the injuries and violence seem fake, but narratively, the shocking event has occurred.

Throw out perfectly good goods

December 8, 2008


“Change your TV, change your life”- an actual slogan. I heard it last night. I’d also like to note, before i continue, the commercials where a woman throws her perfectly good washing machine into a pool so she will need to buy a new “red” one- to enrich her life.
