Welcome to another installment of Movies to Show My Son. This is the blog series were I discuss movies I can’t way to show my son in the future. I’ll be covering my own personal experience with the movie, movie and life lessons I hope he will learn, and lastly my concerns about showing said film. This week’s film is The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.
With this movie being only ten years old I do not have the same type of personal attachment to it as something like The Sandlot. It was one of the first movies I remember watching on a streaming service before they completely took over. It was at a time when Netflix only gave you so many movies to stream a month (insane thinking about that now) and one of those months I chose to watch The King of Kong. »

It's been nearly 30 years since we saw Pierce Brosnan play the lead on a TV series, but he's back, and better than ever.
The 63-year-old actor recently sat down for an interview with Emmy, and Et has your exclusive first look at his feature from the magazine's March issue.
Watch: Pierce Brosnan and His 19-Year-Old Model Son Enjoy Guys' Night Out
In the piece, which hits newsstands March 21, Brosnan gets candid on returning to the small screen as Eli McCullough on AMC's new western drama series, The Son, a type of role he admired as a young boy growing up in Navan, County Meath, Ireland.
"Going to the pictures was a magical delight," he says of watching classic cowboy sagas at local theaters. "The whole mythology of the Western is very much part of my own psyche."
"It's a new age of TV," he adds. "Such rich characters, rich writing -- it's a very fertile time."

Iam Fleming's James Bond novels still have narratives and ideas that haven't made it to the 007 movie series...
A spoiler lies ahead for Spectre

Over the course of 11 years, Ian Fleming wrote 12 James Bond novels and nine short stories before his death in 1964, forming the basis for the film series which survives to the present day. 24 films and 55 years since the birth of the cinematic Bond, it might come as a surprise that the franchise hasn’t completely exhausted its source material. More often than not, however, the James Bond films have been adaptations in name only.
Starting with Roald Dahl’s outlandish screenplay for the fifth Bond film, You Only Live Twice, the film scripts began to drift away from their literary inspirations. For most of Roger Moore’s seven-film tenure, for example, entire plots and characters were »
You know what they say: life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get. Like an Lmd, for instance.
On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 14, a mission to save Mace and May went quite awry, in that it resulted in four members of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team being replaced by LMDs and absolutely no one being rescued.
On the plus side, Mace's shirt appeared to have been confiscated when he was taken captive by Ivanov, which is fine by me. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. viewers were given a Valentine's Day gift in the form of Jason O'Mara's sweaty, rippling abs. So really, six gifts.
Ivanov continues to be an incredibly underwhelming enemy. With his thicker-than-borscht Russian accent, single-minded obsession with revenge, and penchant for traveling via submarine, he's not much more than a third-rate Bond villain.
