What I’ve Been Watching – Mostly Good Television!

What I've Been Watching

Well it’s been a long time since I have confessed to you all what I have been watching. It’s probably because what’s been on my TV lately has been a mixture of reality TV and losing sports teams. After giving it a little bit of thought, I came to the realization that I have been watching a lot of really good television lately. Am I missing any good movies and/or TV? Probably. Post a comment on the website or Facebook and let me know what I should check out!


Reel: SNL’s Tarantino Parody DJESUS UNCROSSED Starring Christoph Waltz

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

The video below might not be up for long (NBC doesn’t care to be liked) but it’s worth finding if you have to.  Saturday Night Live had a parody this past weekend titled Djesus Uncrossed.  You get it right?

2013 Oscar Nominations Announced; Ben Affleck Snubbed for Best Director

Thursday, January 10th, 2013


That’s really all I have to say about the nominations, Ben Affleck got snubbed.  Argo was one of the best movies of the year and he didn’t get nominated for directing (although it’s up for Best Picture).  Don’t take this year’s nominations seriously; Flight got a nomination for writing.

The 85th Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, check out the nominations below:


The CoF Weekend Preview: Merry Movies One and All!

Friday, December 21st, 2012


Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview, it’s the last one of the year!  The Fall & Holiday Movie Guide is almost redundant, it won’t be long until we have our summer 2013 guide up, now that’s just crazy.  Have a great holiday everyone and check out some of the great movies still out there (Skyfall) and some new arrivals worth seeing (Django Unchained).

The Guilt TripRTTrailer

A son and mom road comedy definitely sounds good on paper, but I can’t say I agree with the casting choices here.  Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand have each done their share of great movies, but according to the very unfunny trailer, maybe working together with a balls script wasn’t the best idea.  It’s going to make a lot of money this holiday season, family y’all.

Jack ReacherRTTrailer

Our boy Tom Cruise is kicking ass again and Jack Reacher looks great for it, this guy is awesome.  If you’re one of the many people still unsure of Tom due to his personal life, well what if I told you Werner Herzog was the bad guy in this movie?  Thought so, see you there.

Monsters, Inc. (3D)RTTrailer

Billy Crystal hosted the Oscars this year and has this re-release (and upcoming sequel) and Parental Guidance opening on Christmas day.  It’s like 1992 all over again isn’t it?  Can’t hate the guy, he made Mr. Saturday Night (top 5 of all time) and his voice work in said Monters Inc. movie is wonderful.  Go on Billy, for as long as you can.

This Is 40RTTrailer

Am I surprised at the lackluster response?  No.  Will Judd Apatow throw a Kevin Smith type fit with critics and go on about how people don’t get comedy?  Probably not, but the guy has an odd temper about him (he didn’t like Gervais’ Golden Globes roast).  Most of the mixed reviews suggest that the comedy is funny at times, and then shrill for the rest.  I felt the same about Funny People – it had moments, but I don’t know what characters I disliked the most.  Let’s hope Paul Rudd does some funny faces though.


Django UnchainedRTTrailer (Opens Christmas Day)

Here it is, the feel good movie of the season.  We had our CoF Show dedicated to Quentin Tarantino, we are all pretty excited for his new movie opening Christmas Day.  Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, and powerhouse Christoph Waltz are all going to put on a clinic with performances, oh what fun it will be.

Les MiserablesRTTrailer (Opens Christmas Day)

Predicting this will be the biggest money maker of the new releases is pretty easy; it’s a worldwide event, people are all over this one.  There is singing and sadness, people love that right?

Parental GuidanceRTTrailer (Opens Christmas Day)

This looks terrible, I’m sorry to leave it on a sour note but hell, as funny as cancer.  No wait, as funny as Bette Midler.  Nailed it.  Merry Christmas!

Final Trailer for DJANGO UNCHAINED Goes Out with A Bang

Thursday, November 29th, 2012


Here is the final trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, there isn’t a lot of new footage you haven’t seen from the previous trailers, but it’s still fun to watch.  I’ll be checking this movie out his holiday season if for no other reason than DiCaprio’s crazy performance.

The movie also stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Django Unchained opens on December 25th.


New Trailer for DJANGO UNCHAINED, Who Said Slavery Can’t Be Fun?

Thursday, October 11th, 2012


Here is a new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django Unchained, it’s a bit more revealing than the past trailers as it sets up what’s going to happen at the beginning and middle of the movie.  The cast looks to have had a lot of fun in their respective roles, especially Leonardo DiCaprio who looks and sounds like a maniac.

Adult supervision is required when Django Unchained opens on December 25th.

Director: Rich Moore
Stars: John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Sarah SilvermanAnalysis: Why hasn’t this idea been done already? It has so much potential with the inside jokes and nostalgia that we all want to see, or it won’t not do it enough so it needs a sequel. Let’s just hope they reference Iron Tank, best game ever.

DJANGO UNCHAINED Trailer: Very Tarantino and Very Awesome

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012


It’s finally here, our first look at Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, his first feature since Inglourious Basterds. It’s everything you would expect: bloody, funny, and accompanied by a great soundtrack. His films often divide people (many I know were annoyed by Basterds) but if you ask me, he still offers something completely different from what’s playing any day or year in the theater.

With his latest Django Unchained Christoph Waltz plays a bounty hunter out to kill a group of masked, slave-running brothers. The only man to have seen their faces is a slave named Django (Jamie Foxx), who agrees to help the bounty hunter in exchange for both his freedom, and the rescue of his wife from evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

It’s great to see DiCaprio in a role that doesn’t require him to have lost a wife and cry (Inception, Shutter Island, Revolutionary Road), he’s going to steal the show I bet.  The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, M.C. Gainey, Walton Goggins, Garrett Dillahunt, Dennis Christopher, Gerald McRaney, Laura Cayouette, Don Johnson,and Tom Savini.

Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
