It’s bad for society, and y'know, it’s really bad for men.
Nineteen: The Scarlet Letter, Alcoholism, and “Being True”
The movie was hammered with bad reviews at the time. "Yeah," concedes Gary, "but there's some good work in there."
Eighteen: The Book of Eli, Westerns, and the Politics of Faith
As gunslingers and sinners, they each need redemption, but they suck at going about it-- one moreso than the other, maybe, but they're both in trouble. And no, I'm not talking about the 2020 election (okay, I am, kind of).
Put the kettle on…
We apologize for the gap in content, we've been a bit busy celebrating.
Twelve: The Space Between Us, Daddy Issues, and the Wonders in Our Own Backyard
That Awkward Moment when the Star Man comes to meet you and totally blows your mind. Cause he's your son. And also the worst.

Eight: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Grief, and Goodbyes
Harry opts to see his long-gone loved ones for one reason: he is preparing himself for death.
Seven: The Backwoods, Depression, and Carrying Your Own Shotgun

Tiny Gary is exhausted.
"And you, you're my favorite."
