I’m Just Not That Into ‘How To Be Single’ (Movie Review)

There is something to be said for how close to good the otherwise messy How To Be Single is. Taking a sharp turn from last year’s Valentine’s Day weekend release starring Dakota Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey, here we have a film that manages to settle down every now and then to provide some genuine […]

Vacation (Blu-ray Review)

Believe it or not, July 29th’s Vacation is actually the fifth theatrical and the seventh total installment of the National Lampoon’s Vacation series.  However, that stat does little to phase or impress me.  While I loved some of the earlier National Lampoon’s Vacation movies, the trailers for 2015’s Vacation absolutely rocked.  So much so that I felt if a trailer can elicit that much laughter […]

Rio 2 (Blu-ray Review)

All I knew about the first Rio going into this was that it was the film that topped the box office the weekend Scream 4 was released.  It was a huge hit, taking almost half a billion dollars worldwide.  In order to properly review Rio 2, I had to watch Rio before this and wow…I’m […]

The Other Women…I mean ‘The Other Woman’ (Movie Review)

Three grown woman find out they are sharing the same guy and become friends with a mission to have their silly revenge.  Admittedly I do not have a whole lot of tolerance for these kinds of movies.  I am not talking about ‘chick flicks’, as there are plenty of ‘chick flicks’ that I enjoy and […]

A Duo From Way Back, ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’ Has Been Reimagined (Movie Review)

While I was never a big fan of The Smurfs, among other older cartoons that have since been turned into animated features, Peabody’s Improbable History, which was a part of The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show, was a series of skits that I always found entertaining.  I haven’t watched Peabody in years, but seeing this new […]

‘The Bling Ring’ Gets Caught In Coppola’s Clutches (Movie Review)

The Bling Ring is Sofia Coppola’s 5th theatrical feature and it seems like her least essential effort.  Coppola’s confidence as a filmmaker is certainly apparent, though this film, much like her previous film, Somewhere, relies a lot on repetition.  Much different from Somewhere, however, The Bling Ring is a film that is much more dynamic […]

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 […]

‘ParaNorman’ Raises the Dead And Puts Them To Sleep (Movie Review)

ParaNorman was first introduced to me by a former co-worker whose family’s business (Peak Solutions LLC) just so happened to be directly involved in the production of this 3D stop-motion animated adventure film. How you say? Well they supplied/sold the many 3D rendering color printers the studio/production team used to create thousands of models that […]

‘ParaNorman’ Sees Dead People And The Film Delivers A Lively, Good Time

First and foremost, I should say that I really dug ParaNorman.  The film has quietly stood as one of my most anticipated films of the year, as it fell into the realm of having so many different things that called out to wanting me to like it, and it completely delivered.  A stop-motion animated zombie […]

Reynolds And Bateman ‘Change-Up’ During One Big Freaky Friday

Studio Head: Man, remember back in the 80s when all of those body-switching comedy movies were really popular?  We made tons of money then.  Do we have any ideas like that out there now?  Studio Plot Pitcher: Well sir, there are some big, big comedies recently, which have all benefited from having an R-rating, as […]

I Love You Phillip Morris (Blu-ray Review)

I Love You Phillip Morris may be one of the most unconventional love stories of all time.  It could also be considered one of Jim Carrey’s most daring career moves of all time as well.  You know, with the whole “gay” stigma out there in the world,  a role like this taken by any other […]

‘I Love You Phillip Morris’ Is a Fun Time Away From Lockdown

To be very matter-of-fact, I Love You Phillip Morris is based on a true story about a gay con artist who managed to escape prison many times and also fell in love with one of his fellow inmates, Phillip Morris. Despite its seemingly unique premise and presence of Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor in lead roles, the film has been bouncing around for a couple years, trying to find a U.S. distributor.
