…So, everyone remember a little while back when I made that list of shows I would be reviewing this summer? Yeah, so turns out working two jobs and never being home when the shows air make it a wee bit difficult to keep up with a review schedule for them. Sorry about that, I really am. I honestly count myself lucky that I can still find time to see the movies for mine and Snooty’s weekly reviews.
But, there is some light on the horizon, in the form of me working less hours (which also means more sleep, the Goon does love his sleep) so what I am planning to do is give some more broad reviews of the shows when I have chance to sit down and get caught up and go back the usual episodic format when the Fall shows start up again. Honestly don’t know how many people are reading these reviews, but to those of you that are and find enjoyment in my inane ramblings, I do will my best to get those up more regularly.
So, in the next few days, you can expect a Goonish review of Disney’s Girl Meets World and one of Defiance next week. Also, don’t forget to check out mine and Snooty’s review of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy coming this weekend.
Here we see Jeff Goldblum waving goodbye to his movie career.
Snooty and Goon step into their absolutely legitimately-procured WABAC to visit the smash summer blockbuster hit of 1996, the days when fighter pilots were elected president, crop dusters could legally fly with a .06 BAC, and MacBooks could not be stopped.
Look, it’s Optimus Prime, and he’s riding Unnamed Generic Robot Dinosaur Steed ($39.95, now in stores)!
Orson Welles once described the Transformers franchise as being about “toys who do horrible things to each other.” Thirty years later, Michael Bay has reinvented the franchise to be about toys who do horrible things to their audience.
Snooty and Goon strap in for a road trip across the bleak future of Australia. Not once do they make a single joke about boomerangs, beer, kangaroos, dingos, or quote that episode of the Simpsons. I think that means they’re maturing as critics…
