Blue Sky Studio’s Newest Animation Is Epically Average (Movie Review)

Given how 2013’s Memorial Day weekend is packed with action and comedy for adults with both Fast & Furiou6 and The Hangover Part III hitting screens everywhere, it is only right to have some counter-programming for kids and family audiences.  I only wish that the film Epic lived up to its title.  As it stands, […]


Brian’s Undeniably Sexy & Irresistible Top 10 Films of 2012

For my Top 10 list of favorite films from the calendar year of 2012 I decided to take the high road.  What I mean by that is in these annual posts I also tend to pick on and rip apart all the films I either hated or was utterly disappointed by in the current calendar […]

Jon’s Analytical Coverage of Inglorious Basterds

I wouldn’t exactly say I’m a huge Quentin Tarantino fan.  I think some of the hype about him as a director overlooks the fact that he, just like Martin Scorcese, lifts almost everything he does from other films.  Of course this can turn into a long discussion about the nature of plagiarism and its place […]
