Brad Jones portrays The Cinema Snob, a pretentious film snob who is stuck with reviewing Z-Grade exploitation flicks of the past. I'm a big guy. For you.


  1. I am most likely going to see Arrival this weekend.

    Hey! Thanks for posting a Hacksaw Ridge review. I haven’t seen any thus far. I’ve seen a clip of that Monty Python skit.

    I know I’m not going to see Almost Christmas but you’re the first review I’ve seen of it.

  2. One of the important plot pointers in “Arrival” is the reference to the Sapir-Whorf linguistic hypothesis. The prime example of that hypothesis was the assertion that Hopi language lacks words for time and therefore the Hopi must live in a kind of timeless state where past, present, and future merge. This has been debunked, but it seems to explain a bit about where the movie is coming from.
