Kevin James

Kevin James

Kevin James

Born April 26, 1965

Kevin James is a truly funny guy. He has played a variety of roles and he seems to be able to play just about any role, some of which we will dig into below. He is very deft at physical humor but then you watch him act and emote and he is a very talented as an actor.

Noteworthy

  • Hitch – This was the first movie that I remember Kevin James in. He was fantastic in this role. In particular, the training montage with Will Smith is one of the funniest things that Will Smith has been involved in, in a long time.
  • The King of Queens – Doug Heffernan, as a character, ran across three different shows. Doug was the springboard for Kevin James onto the large screen and really gave a jolt to his career. Add Leah Remini to this and it is no wonder that James is as big a star as he is.
  • I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry – Kevin James and Adam Sandler are box office gold. Having them marry each other for health benefits – genius. Such a funny thought provoking movie.
  • Paul Blart: Mall Cop – Bag on this movie all you want. They had me when he slid across the floor and didn’t quite make it to cover. Laughed my ass off.
  • Here Comes the Boom – A much more trim Kevin James learning to MMA fight to save a program in his school. Bizarre plot great flick. Loved it.

There’s no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap.

Vince Vaughn

Vince Vaughn Born March 28, 1970   Vince Vaughn is fantastic. I love him in every role that I see him in. And, as you may have heard one more than one of our podcasts - I want him to be in every movie. And if he can't have a speaking role just have him walk...

My Podcast Playlist

I am a podcast junkie. Not a day has gone by that I have not listened to a few podcasts a day over the last several years. I use Beyond Pod to control my podcast habit. I usually listen them at 1.5 times the normal speed. Each of the podcasts below will get its own...

What if the Flintstones Were More Realistic?

Slate.com had a great review of DC Comics new version of The Flintstones. Gone is the goofy group of cave people that lived in a little town called bedrock. Wilma and Fred are still here but they are less like the Honey Mooners and more up to date in a 1 million year...

Lee Daniels’ The Butler

I am very behind the times and I am sure that most of you have seen Lee Daniels' The Butler - probably, you even saw it when it came out in 2013. I didn't watch it until recently and it makes me said that I didn't see it in the theater. Incredible . star-studded,...

Reddit from a Redditor

Reddit from a Redditor Jenny was a\only looking for kisses, waiting to see what was in the safe the guy found in his house, and Kevin showing up at the front door to ask for bananas. If you understood those references then hello fellow redditor and if not let me...
Cedric the Entertainer

Cedric the Entertainer

Cedric the Entertainer

Born April 24, 1964

Cedric the Entertainer is one of the funniest people on the planet. Since his stand-up days, I have been following his career and catching him everywhere that I can.

Noteworthy

  • The Original Kings of Comedy – Cedric the Entertainer, Bernie Mac, Steve Harvey, and DL Hughley. This is still one of the best stand-up special of all time.
  • Barbershop – Cedric is Eddie. Barbershop is awesome and worth a re-watch every couple of years.
  • The Honeymooners – Who else can take Gleason’s place in this reboot… that is all I am asking.

We as comics do want an immediate response from the audience. It’s really quiet on the set, and there are only the producers, and the director, so a comic is looking for someone to give a reaction, even if it is the camera guy.

-Cedric the Entertainer

Rob Zombie Renaissance Man

Rob Zombie Let's talk about Rob Zombie Renaissance Man. He is a musician, a filmmaker and a screenwriter. He is amazing at all three and while I really dig his music, I want to celebrate his birthday (January 12, 1965) by talking about his movies. Noteworthy House of...

How to Talk Your Wife into The Walking Dead

How to Talk Your Wife into The Walking Dead I love The Walking Dead. It is one of the few shows that I actually watch when it comes on. I would be glad to watch almost anything else when it happens to roll on to a streaming service. TWD has to be watched as soon as it...

Eva Mendes

Eva Mendes Born March 5, 1974   Eva Mendes really can do it all. She is an amazing actress, a business person, and a mom. She is also devastatingly funny. Noteworthy Hitch - Mendes is the perfect leading lady and counterpart to Will Smith in Hitch. She is so damn...

Things About Goats You May Not Know

I guess we should start off with the biggest and most believed misconception of them all. Goats will eat anything including tin cans, cardboard boxes and in the case of “The Andy Griffith Show”, dynamite. The truth of the matter is that they are fairly picky eaters....

This Geeks World – An Intro

A brief introduction to This Geeks World. What will you see on this website and what do we have planned for the future.

Rick Moranis

Rick Moranis

Rick Moranis

Born April 18, 1953

Rick Moranis has been a part of my Geeks World for as long as I can remember. From Ghostbusters to Spaceballs and beyond he has been a part of some of the biggest geek-fests in the world. I miss Rick Moranis but I get the fact that he is a single dad now and raising kids.

Noteworthy

  • Ghostbusters – This is one of my favorite comedies of all time. Moranis plays one of those secondary roles that is so outstanding that the movie would not have worked without him in it.
  • Little Shop of Horrors – Seymour is one of the roles that I would love to play on stage. Rick Moranis made me fall in love with this character.
  • Spaceballs – Moranis as Dark Helmet – “And I see your Schwartz is as big as mine…”
  • Honey, I Shrunk the Kids – Completely dug this movie as a kid. Liked all of the spin-offs too.
  • Splitting Heirs – Here is one you might not be familiar with. Moranis and Monty Python alum Eric Idle as kids switched at birth. Holy crap it is a funny movie.

I’m a single parent, and I just found that it was too difficult to manage raising my kids and doing the traveling involved in making movies. So I took a little bit of a break. And the little bit of a break turned into a longer break, and then I found that I really didn’t miss it.

-Rick Moranis

Christian Bale

Christian Bale - Born January 30, 1974 Christian Bale. People that know me well are probably surprised that I am celebrating him on his birthday. I am very outspoken about not liking him as Batman (certainly his most well-known role). If someone could tell me if it...

Blurry Photos Podcast – Episode 157 Numerology

I am jumping ahead of myself but I need to share a podcast that I listened to today - Blurry Photos Podcast: Episode 157 Numerology. I have not taken the time to give them a full review on the website yet, or even to delve into my deep love of podcasts or podcasting...

Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig Born March 2, 1968   Daniel Craig has not been in my favorite Bond movies but he is one of the best actors to ever utter the phrase of naming from that series of movies. Besides Bond, Craig has managed to keep up his skills by acting in all manner of...

Dana Delany

Dana Delany Born March 13, 1956   Dana Delany has been a Silver Screen and TV screen staple for years. She can always be counted on to turn out a great performance whether she is being called on to deliver the comedy or the drama. Noteworthy China Beach - This is the...

Molly Ringwald

Molly Ringwald Born February 18, 1968   Molly Ringwald was one of the Brat ack and one of the IT girls when I was growing up. She played teen angst better than almost anyone else. Noteworthy Sixteen Candles - Great cast as we see Molly Ringwald's dream of the perfect...
Martin Lawrence

Martin Lawrence

Martin Lawrence

Born April 16, 1965

I first remember Martin Lawrence as a stand-up comedian. After that, he made the move to the small screen and then to movies. The whole time, Lawrence has kept his sense of humor, his sense of self and he has continued to turn out projects that everyone can enjoy.

Noteworthy

  • Bad Boys – The first one is still the best. Will Smith and Martin Larence pull of the action flick buddy cop movie without any problems.
  • Martin – This self-titled TV series was a huge success and ran for 132 episodes.
  • Life – Lawrence teams with Eddie Murphy in this prison comedy that had a lot of heart and passion.
  • Big Momma’s House – Lawrence is undercover as Big Momma. Gender-bending all the way to the bank.
  • Open Season – Lawrence voices Boog the Bear opposite Ashton Kutcher’s Elliot the Deer. I am going to have to watch this again soon now.

You might see some of the movies that I’m in where there are shades of drama or whatever, but for the most part, I don’t get offered serious roles.

-Martin Lawrence

Rachel Dratch

Rachel Dratch Born February 22, 1966   Rachel Dratch has been on SNL since 1999. It is 2018 as of the time of this writing. That is a long damn time. She is not a regular cast member now but she is still beloved enough to make an appearance from time to time. I just...

Tiffani Thiessen

Tiffani Thiessen - Born January 23, 1974 Tiffani Thiessen was one of those crushes that I had as a kid watching TV. I think most boys wanted to date Kelly from Saved by the Bell. Over the years, Thiessen has kept her career going with guest roles on TV, starring roles...

Spoilers Be Damned

I am no respecter of spoilers or of spoiling movies for other people - Spoilers Be Damned. It is not because I am unkind or because I look to spoil someone else's fun but I think the amount of time we spend focused on spoilers is a little ridiculous. I tire of hearing...

Rick Moranis

Rick Moranis Born April 18, 1953   Rick Moranis has been a part of my Geeks World for as long as I can remember. From Ghostbusters to Spaceballs and beyond he has been a part of some of the biggest geek-fests in the world. I miss Rick Moranis but I get the fact that...

James Van Der Beek

James Van Der Beek Born March 8, 1977   James Van Der Beek showed up in my pop-culture worldview when he appeared in Varsity Blues. Since that movie, I have been a fan and will watch just about anything that Van Der Beek appears in. Noteworthy Varsity Blues - Varsity...
Caroline Rhea

Caroline Rhea

Caroline Rhea

Born April 13, 1964

So I have a bit of a crush on Caroline Rhea. It is not only her looks, it is her wit, and her intelligence. Comedians have to be smart to be funny in my book and she certainly fits that bill.

Noteworthy

  • Sabrina, the Teenage Witch – 143 episodes as Hilda Spellman. She was the only reason that I watched this show. Again, big crush on Caroline Rhea.
  • Phineas & Ferb – Rhea has provided voices for one of the best new cartoons on TV across 123 episodes. Most notably she is the voice of Linda Flynn-Fletcher.
  • Christmas with the Kranks – She is part of this much loved Christmas movie. She plays Candi part of the neighborhood that has turned on Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis.

I’m very impressed by St. Patrick’s. Another deity to me is definitely Saks Fifth Avenue. Someone told me that when they go to Vermont, they feel like they’re home. I’m that way at Saks.

-Caroline Rhea

Why Do I Watch

Why do I watch... the Superbowl As another season draws towards the big game and my team didn't make it past the playoffs… again (sigh), I look back on my favorite professional sport and ask myself: “Why the hell do I like this game again?” The longer that I watch...

Podcasts – Talk Radio Whenever You Need It

Much earlier in y life, I was Talk Radio junkie. High School and college, if I was in the car be myself I was most likely listening to the local talk radio station. Saturdays I looked forward to ar Talk and Wait Wait Don't Tell me on NPR. At some point, with my tastes...

Mods for Fallout 4 on PS4

I finally got my mods for Fallout 4 on PS4! And I can only say it is about time. We, the Playstation using portion of the country, were told we would have mods late spring of 2016. The kibosh was put on that by Bethesda or Sony or both and the delay was on. I kept up...

Jason Segel Friend to Muppets

Jason Segel "I'm not a gay pirate, I have sex with my parrot all the time!... OK, that came out wrong." - Marshall - How I Met Your Mother Noteworthy How I Met Your Mother -  I love this show. I don't love the storyline but the characters more than make up for that....
