Bad Words

Release: Friday, March 28, 2014 [Theater] When a child uses choice language around the house, they run not from their parents, but rather away from the bar of Irish Spring they know will soon be in their mouth. The expression ‘I am going to wash your mouth out with soap’ may be timeless, but it’s never quite the deterrentContinue reading “Bad Words”

TBT: Wedding Crashers (2005)

Throwback Thursday March-es on with the final entry of the month hitting on yet another comic note. Really, comedies are pretty easy to review for this feature since they make up a majority of what I have in my DVD collection. They lay strewn across my floor in front of my T.V. and very oftenContinue reading “TBT: Wedding Crashers (2005)”

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Release: Friday, March 7, 2014 (limited) [Theater] Getting to work with Wes Anderson on any given project just has to be an unforgettable experience. If he called, I honestly don’t know how one would be able to use the word ‘No’ during that conversation; that scheduling conflict better be worth it. Whether just a weekend visitorContinue reading “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

TBT: Lost in Translation (2003)

There are some titles out there you know you have no good excuse for avoiding for so long. It’s not even like you were accidentally putting them after others in a queue because you wanted to see those others first. You just, forgot about them. I’m not just referring to small, independent movies that haveContinue reading “TBT: Lost in Translation (2003)”

Winnebago Man

Release: Friday, July 9, 2010 [Hulu] If you don’t know who Jack Rebney is, first of all — shame on you. Second of all, shame on you. And third of all, good news: it won’t be hard for you to find out who that is. A quick YouTube browsing will instantly pull up a five-ish minuteContinue reading “Winnebago Man”

Need for Speed

Release: Friday, March 14, 2014 [Theater] At the very least, Need for Speed has a need for tighter editing. One lap around this fast track will take you a little over two hours, a gratuitous length of time for a movie that centers around a videogame about street racing. The other obvious question is what, ifContinue reading “Need for Speed”

TBT: Step Brothers (2008)

This back pain I’ve been experiencing recently is causing me to be lazier than usual. Because I’ve been very lazy today, I felt like choosing a movie to review where it wouldn’t be too much of a challenge to churn one out relatively quickly, and so I selected another comedy. And what less challenging materialContinue reading “TBT: Step Brothers (2008)”

Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Release: Friday, March 7, 2014 [Theater] Here’s a newsflash: Rover is a really boring name for a dog. You should get creative and name yours something crazy and endearing, you know, like Mr. Peabody. Or whatever suits your fancy. Put thick nerdy glasses on it, too, if you want. Just don’t expect the pup to transformContinue reading “Mr. Peabody & Sherman”

The Franco Files — #2

Welcome to March, and the second edition of The Franco Files! Last month I decided to expand this site with another feature, something that would closely examine the impacts one actor can or does have on the films that they are in. TFF is, simply put, a great excuse for me to wax poetic aboutContinue reading “The Franco Files — #2”

300: Rise of an Empire

Release: Friday, March 7, 2014 [Theater] Two things you must be comfortable with in order to properly enjoy the latest Frank Miller graphic novel adaptation: a whole lot of crimson red and a whole lot of Eva Green. If you’re at least cool with the second, then there’s hope for you still as you stand inContinue reading “300: Rise of an Empire”
