Mike Birbiglia’s DON’T THINK TWICE — Opening July 22nd!

For eleven years, an improv group called The Commune has reigned as the big fish in the small pond of their New York improv theater. Commune members Miles, Samantha, Jack, Allison, Bill and Lindsay invent comedy without a script and without a net. They’re ingenious, they’re fast, and they build on each others’ ideas like […]

Life Partners (Blu-ray Review)

Leighton Meester and Gillian Jacobs star in keenly observant comedy Life Partners arriving on Blu-ray from Magnolia Home Entertainment.  It also has Adam Brody, Abby Elliott and Kate McKinnon.  I’m a huge fan of both Jacobs and McKinnon, so this film at least has that going for it in my wheelhouse.  The film is the directorial debut of Susanna […]

THE LOOKALIKE: A New Neo-Noir Hitting Blu-ray This February

A little movie with a fun cast and it is described as a neo-noir thriller?  That all sounds good to me.  The Lookalike presents a murder mystery and lots of characters to follow and I am intrigued by what the results may be.  Husband and wife filmmakers Richard Gray (director) and Michele Davis-Gray (writer) assemble an […]

For those who enjoy a fun horror comedy or have ever wondered what a sillier take on a David Cronenberg body horror film would be like, Bad Milo has you covered.  The film is easily described as the one where Ken Marino has a butt gremlin and there is not much to argue against with […]

The Wild Comedy BAD MILO! Arrives On Blu-ray, DVD & iTunes This January From Magnolia

Just what everyone needs after the holidays:  A horror-comedy about a butt demon.  Yep, that is the basic concept of Bad Milo, a wild looking film that deals with a man who has a demon living in his intestine.  I am intrigued just enough, based on some of the art that I have seen for […]
