To answer your last question, yes, the Dutch eat farts.

I did it last year, so in the spirit of not having anything better to do, here’s the 2015 Bang, Marry, Kill wrap-up.

BB-8 approves!

What? I reviewed 5-ish directors in 2015 for movieMixology’s Bang, Marry, Kill series. Each right before they released new movies into theaters, in a crass attempt to piggy-back site clicks off their hard work. All while I nurtured my alcohol addiction and lazily threw out dick jokes.

The tortured artists: Rob Cohen, The Wachowski Siblings, George Miller, Tarsem Singh and J.J. Abrams.

Their 2015 masterpieces: The Boy Next Door, Jupiter Ascending, Mad Max: Fury Road, Self/less and Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.

Not to get all “blood farty” on you, but the geek inside of me was excited when I saw the previews and marketing material for “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial for Atari 2600.” From that great period before ET sold out to the man and joined the galactic senate. And technology powered by Reese’s Pieces and dying children (I don’t remember the E.T. that well).

It flopped worse than Operation Olive Garden.

Of courselloutse, this just reiterated a lesson that my hope (that I’d find a working Atari 2600) made me temporarily forget: Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning? And sadly the same thing can be said for “Jurassic World.”
