My Top Ten Favorite Fighting Games

Posted on November 6, 2018

I’ve recently been trying to re-focus my blog to a more personal direction, writing creative non-fiction and tales from my childhood. Yet, the other “segments” I’ve created for my blog, such as Top Ten – still call to me. I feel like it’s time to do another. As I was wondering what subject I should write about for this installment of Top Ten, the idea hit me like a massive Hadouken. I should totally do a Top Ten based around my love for fighting games. I’ve always been a big fan of fighting games, though I was never good at them. Because the games usually focus only on fighting, a big chunk of the art direction goes into making the graphics as slick as…

My Top Ten Favorite Comedy Movies

Posted on August 9, 2018

Well, we’re right in the middle of summer and at the theaters right now, people are lining up to see their favorite summer blockbuster action films. I love action films – and you can see my Top Ten Favorite Action Films right HERE – but I think one of my favorite genres is Comedy. Whenever my wife and I sit down to watch a movie during dinner, or whenever I want to wind down for the night if I’m by myself, I pop in one of my favorite comedy films. Just like the rest of the other Top Ten lists on my blog (you can see the entire list under the Categories tab on my main page, under Top Ten), this list is numbered…

My Top Ten Favorite Albums

Posted on June 17, 2018

I haven’t done a Top Ten list in quite some time, so now’s as good a time as any to list my TOP TEN FAVORITE MUSIC ALBUMS. My music tastes have gone all over the place as I’ve grown as a person, but mostly – my top ten favorite albums stay the same. Or, at least they have for a while. These albums have seen me through some interesting times in my life, and so I’m excited to share them with you and also share why I like them. While they are listed in “top ten” order, I feel like each album sort of moves around depending on my mood – so by no means is the order set in stone. It’s just an…

My Top Ten Favorite Action Films

Posted on March 30, 2018

It’s spring, so it’s almost time for those summer blockbusters to hit the big screen. Being that I haven’t done one of these Top Ten lists in a while, I figured I’d take aim and fire off my top ten favorite action films. These are films I’ve carefully thought about, and while they are in a numbered order for the purposes of this list – I think these movies fluctuate up and down, though they mostly all stay in the top ten. Let’s get to it.   10. THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT (1996) PLOT:¬†Suburban mom, Samantha Caine (Geena Davis), lives in Honesdale, Pennsylvania with her daughter Caitlin (Yvonne Zima) doing the mom thing and dealing with amnesia. When Samantha receives a bump on the…

My Top Ten Favorite Women Actors

Posted on October 19, 2015

I already did a Top Ten post this week, but it was featuring all male actors so I felt I needed to do another one – almost like a “part two”…this time featuring my top ten favorite women actors. This will follow the format of my previous post (and please check that one out HERE if you haven’t already) which consists of The Good (The best role), The Bad (The worst role), and The Sexy (A racy photo because….hey, they are celebrities right? And yeah, I did it for the guys, too). Keep in mind that this is a list of my own favorites, and it is subject to change over the years. In any case – let’s get on with it! 10. HALLE…

My Top Ten Favorite Male Actors

Posted on October 18, 2015

For this edition of Top Ten, I’ve decided to focus on my top ten favorite male actors. Hey, now – the ladies are coming in another post (sneaky way to get multiple posts, eh?), so just relax. For each actor, I’ll give a brief explanation of why I like them and then post three pics. The Good (Best Role), The Bad (Worst Role), and The Sexy (A ‘Sexy’ Pic Because Why Not? They are celebrities after all, right?). With all that said, let’s begin. 10. LIAM NEESON Liam Neeson definitely deserves to be in my top ten. He’s Irish (like me), kicks a lot of ass, and has starred in some heavy roles. Whenever I see a Liam Neeson film, I know I can…

My Top Ten Favorite Horror Films

Posted on September 30, 2015

Horror films have made leaps and bounds over the years in terms of what scares the general public and what chills the blood. Since it’s now October, I’m going to take some time and list my TOP TEN FAVORITE HORROR FILMS in honor of my favorite month. 10. FRAILTY PLOT:¬†A man confesses to an FBI agent his family’s story of how his religious fanatic father’s visions lead to a series of murders to destroy supposed “demons.” WHY I LOVE IT: Frailty is one of those films that is severely underrated not just as a film in general – but also as a horror film. Although deemed a “thriller” – in this case, I would go so far as to say that Frailty stands more…
