Ron's Movie Rant: The Muppets (2011)
My wife complains that I find way to many messages in movies every time we watch them. And some make headlines, like the Frozen movie, and movies like that. Unfortunately, many simply role their eyes and continue to watch because they "just want to watch a movie" and don't care about the message. And that may be true but what about their subconscious? In the case of anti-Christian messages, Christian reviewers either don't see the messages or choos...

Jack is Back!

June 13, 2014 Posted by Ron

24

24: Love Another Day has hot the airwaves four years after 24 ended. A 12 episode "shortened" season of Jack Bauer and his bad-ass-ness. Is it still relevant. Will this shortened season encourage a reawakening of the show? Or is this a one off, a final goodbye from Jack? I guess we shall see.
Everything I am reading avoids the question of another season. They just talk about this being the plot of the failed movie and how it's great to be back. I truly hope this does well enough that they con...

Another weekend after Memorial Day

June 03, 2014 Posted by Ron

Me

Another year passes and another weekend in May/June goes by.  I find myself a little less bitter but still holding resentment against those that betrayed my trust.  Meanwhile, the continue to benefit from my hard work, particular this year because of the guest I got them.  It was my magnum opus and I did not get to enjoy it.
I still struggle with seeing people enjoy their time there, making positive comments and generally enjoying something I had so much to do with at one time bu...

2013 in review

The year of cons!

January 17, 2014 Posted by Ron

Me

Once again I delve into a personal assessment and evaluation with no expectation of anyone else giving a sh*t about me, my year or my life.  I just find it therapeutic.
Going into 2013, I had suffered a pretty difficult 2012.  I am sure there are hundreds of ways that it could have gotten worse but I was hopeful that it would be better year for me.  It started out kind of ambitious, with my first attempt to restart my old Saturday gaming group, making plans ot lauch a game review...

People Disappoint

September 16, 2013 Posted by Ron

Me

A moment of introspection has lead me to really analyze myself and the people around me.A little background - in the past couple of years, 2 people who I thought were good and reliable friends have disappointed me greatly.  Through my life, I have had many people disappoint me.  Why do they?  They don't meet expectations obviously.  I give people slack in a lot of things and my expectations are never really set too high for most people.  But when people tel...

Conflicted!

A year later and they are still at it!

July 01, 2013 Posted by Ron

Me

Character! Integrity! Honor!  These are the things I expect from friends.  They are very important to me.  I am not stupid enough to think that any one person can be perfect in any of those categories, but when dealing with me, my family and my friends, you need to show a certain minimum in all three.
I tolerated a lot of lack in those areas for 11 years while working with a certain group, so much so that perhaps it was permeating into me.  Or maybe perhaps that was the probl...

The Gamer's Codex Launch!

Gaming

After several months of hinting and some false starts, Justus Productions would like to announce our latest project. Jeff and I have been talking about something like this for a while. Back in 2006 to 2009, I wrote for a web site called gamingreport.com, and later for Scrye magazine after their publisher bought the web site. Combing that experience with the resources and reputation of Justus Productions, we have launched a new web site that we'd like you to check out.
