‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ Take You To The Theater Immediately (Movie Review)

It is amazing how things work sometimes. How To Train Your Dragon gets credit for being a sleeper success, as many were not thrilled by the marketing, but it ended up making big bucks and spawning a whole franchise (sequels, TV shows, etc.). I was actually quite intrigued by the trailers for the first film […]

Fly High And Soar Through The Heavens With ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ (Movie Review)

While I tend to be a very impatient fellow who’s always wanting something else as fast as it can be handed to me, there are some things worth the wait.  There are such things as the perfect film.  Lightning can surely strike the same place twice.  And for those reasons and so many more, that’s […]

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Blu-ray Review)

An assumption about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is that it appears to be a light-hearted adventure comedy made for a trendy crowd, due to the use of various elements in its trailers.  I would not necessarily agree, but that seems to have inspired a lot of ire in the film from some, for […]

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (Blu-ray Review)

Disclaimer: This opening paragraphs consists of all original thoughts, phrases and ideas.  Admittedly so, I missed this one in theaters.  I got lazy.  I never showed up.  I even lost the free movie cash we had to see this one.  Boo!  However, I was still curious to see where this second and supposedly final film […]

The Adventure of a Lifetime on Blu-ray, ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’

I have never seen this one before, but I know my fellow WSB staff around here really thought the world of it so paint me curious about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  And best of all…we don’t have too long to wait for what Fox deems the must-own movie of the year on Blu-ray. […]

‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ Is Kinda Special (Movie Review)

It feels like I am already in the minority on this one, but I think it has been clear in my writing over the years that I enjoy enjoying films, as opposed to trying to be negative.  Sometimes my enjoyment falls in line with a majority of other folk who watch and write about film […]

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty Trailer

Trailers are not posted very often, because we tend to be busy providing the latest coverage in regards to Blu-rays, movie reviews, and most recently – Comic Con.  However, a recent trailer has launched for an upcoming film that puts Ben Stiller back in the director’s chair.  The film is The Secret Life of Walter […]

Despicable Me 2: Attack Of The Minions (Movie Review)

It would appear that the Despicable Me films are not for me.  Despite having a love for animated films, wacky humor, and films that have original songs and themes by Pharrell Williams, I remained unattached to what should be entertaining me quite easily.  The concept of pulling a reverse-Incredibles and having us follow a reformed […]

Friends With Kids (Blu-ray Review)

Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Jon Hamm star alongside Jennifer Westfeldt and Adam Scott in a daring and hilarious ensemble comedy about a close-knit circle of friends whose lives change once they have kids.  The last two singles in the group (Westfeldt and Scott) observe the effect that kids have had on their friends’ relationships and […]

Bridesmaids (Blu-ray Review)

Bridesmaids was certainly something different and really funny. Not only did I enjoy Kristin Wiig’s roundhouse performance, I enjoyed the script written by her along with two other cast members. Men, don’t be fooled; Bridesmaids is a film for guys and girls alike that has enough wit and humor throughout to keep it entertaining. The […]

Extract (Blu-ray Review)

I know I’m in the minority, but this movie is very funny to me. Everything about Mike Judge’s Extract is delightful. From the story, to the script, to the acting; everything about this movie is a clear example of the way that Judge can put his audiences in a world of pure escapism containing outrageous humor. […]

‘Bridesmaids’ Showers You With The Funny

Bridesmaids is a very funny movie.  It is not because it tries to make chick flicks “cool” by adding a raunchy side so guys can laugh too.  It is also not because I feel I need to support this film for the sake of making women feel appreciated.  That is all bogus.  This movie is […]

I Had A Fun, Close Encounter With ‘Paul’

It seems like 2011 is going to be littered with aliens and otherworldly beings.  Paul falls into that category and I feel I must clarify what it is, as the TV spots I have seen for it do really poor justice to what is quite a funny movie.  Paul is an R-rated, road trip, buddy […]

Paul is Rude, Crude and Downright Lovable!

Continuing the recent streak of films I covered panels for at last year’s Comic-Con comes a science fiction comedy like none other from the brains behind Hot Fuzz.  Of course I’m talking about the aptly named film Paul.  And E.T. thought he was special for having a feature named after himself.  LOL.   What I […]
