The Disaster Artist [Work-In-Progress] (SXSW Review)

The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and lovable tribute to the enigmatic and oddly admirable figure who is Tommy Wiseau, director of The Room. This film is really for those who love The Room for its off-the-wall absurdity and incomprehensibility, but there is enough setup and care given to establishing just what kind of person […]

Nerve (Blu-ray Review)

Nerve was a film I kinda wrote off last summer.  The trailer played with a quite a few films I went to see, but it looked like one that gave away everything and it seemed to skew younger than I’d be interested in.  Not that an aspect like that would keep me from seeing something, […]

Now You See Me 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Now You See Me 2 won’t get any points for originality in the title department.  There’s also the absence of one of the Fourth Horseman, Isla Fisher’s character, to explain.  However, what I was at least hoping for here was some fun magic, deception and illusion tricks.  That much the first film managed to provide.  […]

‘Nerve’ Dares To Examine The Thrills Of Social Media (Movie Review)

The central idea of Nerve is one that sounds both ridiculous and completely accurate, based on the society of today. Directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (of Catfish fame) have taken a script by Jessica Sharzer, adapted from a YA novel by Jeanne Ryan and developed a high school kids-focused thriller that doubles as social […]

‘Now You See Me 2’ Brings More Magic Tricks And Shenanigans To The Table (Movie Review)

The core concept behind these Now You See Me films is making heist movies with magicians. That sounds incredibly fun to me and apparently many others, as the first film was a sleeper hit, paving the way for this sequel. Now You See Me 2 takes the ‘bigger is better’ route seen with most sequels […]

Neighbors 2 Plays It Safe and Succeeds (Movie Review)

I have a weird kind of attachment to the first Neighbors outing.  It’s not because I liked it a lot, but it’s because it’s the last time my parents came down to visit me in Austin, TX.  You see, besides some friends, my parents are the only ones who have ever came down to visit […]

Unfinished Business (Blu-ray Review)

In this hilarious drink-like-a-fish-out-of-water comedy, Vince Vaughn stars as a hard-working entrepreneur who travels to Europe with his two associates (Dave Franco and Tom Wilkinson) to close the most important business deal of their lives. But the journey quickly spins out of control as the hapless trio encounters all kinds of crazy obstacles, including Oktoberfest […]

‘Unfinished Business’ Had Lots Of Unfinished Jokes (Movie Review)

I like Vince Vaughn and have tried to support his efforts over the years, but what are we doing here?  At some point in the scripting of this film about three men going on a business trip to Germany, the creative decision was to have a character named Mike Pancake, because silly last names equal […]

‘Unfinished Business’ Rides Coach (Movie Review)

Make no mistake about it, I’m here discussing Unfinished Business today because of Vince Vaughn.  I love just about every comedic role the guy’s ever been in and no way was I staying home and missing this press screening despite the complete opposite of balmy, icy and blistery temperatures we’re suffering through in Austin, TX (I am […]

22 Jump Street (Blu-ray Review)

It should be no surprise to anyone that the dynamic duo, hilarious tag team of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are back  reprising their respective roles from 2012 in the appropriately titled 22 Jump Street (I’ll expand upon that more down below).  I last talked about 21 Jump Street in my Blu-ray review over here in 2012 and I’m happy to […]

Hidy Ho! ‘Neighbors’ (Movie Review)

In lesser hands, Neighbors could have been an easily forgettable mess of a film, with talented comedic performers simply going through the motions of a ‘versus’-type comedy.  The thing that separates a film like this from whatever junk a company like Happy Madison Productions tends to put out in theaters these days is the attempt […]

Don’t Look Too Closely And You’ll Find Fun In ‘Now You See Me’ (Movie Review)

Now You See Me is the kind of movie that is both a lot of fast-paced fun throughout and still annoying due to how clever it thinks it is.  I can see a large audience enjoying this movie quite a bit, as everything is moving so quickly that there is rarely a chance to stop […]

‘Warm Bodies’, Slow Corpses, Fun Movie (Movie Review)

It would seem highly unlikely that I would like a romantic comedy with a regular human girl and a hipster zombie as the romantic leads that are supposed to fall in love, but here we are.  Based on description alone, this seemed like a bad idea, but rather than dwell on being a sappy love […]
