The Big Sick (Blu-ray Review)

Every comedian has a story, which is likely why they are comedians, to begin with. Detailing the ways life has set one on a particular path makes a lot of sense when it comes to shaping an act designed to entertain people. Comedy can certainly go with life’s tragedies, as an old saying even involves […]

Girls: The Final Season (Blu-ray Review)

When Lena Dunham’s Girls debuted, I gave it a watch. I didn’t make it past the pilot. It turned me off big time and I hated pretty much every character. Sometime during season 3, I was unemployed and binging some HBO stuff I hadn’t seen and decided on giving Girls another shot. The problem I […]

Girls: The Complete Third Season (Blu-ray Review)

Girls, Girls Girls.  You hear a lot about this show, whether it be good, bad or “controversial”.  Having watched the show…I really don’t understand how this show is controversial at all.  Just because Lena Dunham doesn’t have a supermodel figure and gets naked?  Lame.  There are some moments push limits, but its HBO.  I think […]

‘Anchorman 2’: The Return Of Baxter! (Movie Review)

I have recently had discussions about comedy sequels with some friends.  They are not easy to pull off, which is obvious just due to the fact that it is hard to name more than a couple comedy sequels offhand that really match up to the original film.  For all the fun I had and continue […]

Anchorman – The Legend of Ron Burgundy – Unrated Rich Mahogany Edition – (Blu-ray Review)

Anchorman is one of those films I have not visited since its theatrical release way back in the calendar year of 2004.  I cannot believe it has been that long, but I digress.  What looked like a slapstick comical movie back then that I would go for practically fizzled for me when I first saw […]

‘This Is 40’ Features Lots Of Laughs And Unrelatable Problems (Movie Review)

I am not sure how concerned with my own age I should be when thinking about This Is 40, but I can say that I have doubts that Judd Apatow’s new film about a couple with two kids living in a mansion in LA, facing financial issues, because Paul Rudd’s record label is not doing […]
