Names to Know: Alexander Payne


Recently re-watching a bunch of his movies, it dawned on me that a lot of people don’t know the name Alexander Payne; and it really Payned me to realize that. Did you see what I did there? Huh? Pretty clever. But nowhere near the cleverness of this gentleman who has captured human life to its funniest and rawest in all his movies. For sure at the near top of the list of my favorite directors, I’m glad to have a platform on Goombas Gone Wild to share his work and his name with you. As the self proclaimed Alberta movie guru and contributing movie writer on this site, I want to bring you some features on filmmakers to brighten your horizon and maybe pass along some good film recommendations to you as well.

Why you should be Watching The Last Man on Earth


I know, new television really isn’t my thing. I’m still watching old reruns of MASH and Mary Tyler Moore.

I gave up on Mulaney despite my love for Martin Short and I am the only person who doesn’t watch Orange is the New Black; but I just discovered a show that believe or not is on a network, is completely original, and less than 10 episodes in. The Last Man on Earth is the first show I’ve been hooked on in a long, long time. Continue reading


Simmer! It’s Just a Video Game

Once again the video game industry has come under fire for its violent content, what else is new? It’s the same thing over and over again and every time I get more frustrated with the world. For some reason my brain cannot fathom the idea why people complain about violence in video games. I mean I can go onto Netflix and watch Rampage which happens to be a story about a kid going and shooting up his town. Or I can look at the news and see pretty much the exact same thing if not worse.
