This Is 40

Release: Friday, December 21, 2012 [Theater] I do like Judd Apatow but I’m going to veer off-course here, just like his directing does in this film, by saying this is in no way one of his best features. It’s certainly one of his longest. Clocking in at over two-hours, This Is 40 is a chance to exploitContinue reading “This Is 40”

Nitro Circus: The Movie 3D

Release: Wednesday, August 8, 2012 (limited) [Redbox] Lead by example. . . . by throwing your half-naked body down a ramp at 70 m.p.h. only to be flung off into space. That’s the American way, right? Despite the multiple times we get smacked with that red warning label: “DO NOT ATTEMPT AT HOME” that’s notContinue reading “Nitro Circus: The Movie 3D”

Silver Linings Playbook

Release: Wednesday, November 21, 2012 [Theater] I don’t like to use the word ‘awesome’ all that much. It’s just, like, completely so totally not all that great to do.

Release: Friday, June 22, 2012 [Redbox] Hey, it only seems appropriate, right? Some of us may be sitting and counting down the days to discovering just how accurate that Mayan calendar is, but some others are going to be just content enough to sit and write reviews of movies dealing with the end. Another tale ofContinue reading “Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World”

Killing Them Softly

Release: Friday, November 30, 2012 [Theater] Brad Pitt does not smile once in this movie. And for that matter, the sun does not come out to shine in Killing Them Softly, either. Bring it on — the rain, the darkness, the bloodsplattering, and the poetic justice behind it all. Some won’t be as willing as IContinue reading “Killing Them Softly”

The Babymakers

Release: Friday, August 3, 2012 [Redbox] I just got done having my eyeballs tortured after watching what might very well be the least-consequential movie of all time. Certainly of my time. Although vulgar to the max, it’s pretty lean on the funny jokes, and the acting is horrible. Just, horrible. The promise of an elegantContinue reading “The Babymakers”
