30-for-30: The ’85 Bears

Release: Thursday, February 4, 2016 [Netflix] Directed by: Jason Hehir  There will never be another quite like the 1985 Chicago Bears defense. Or their offense. Or their coach(es). Or their cult of personality.

Hell and Back (2015)

Hell and Back is the result of a very goofy experiment. It manifests as Tom Gianas and Ross Shuman’s crude mash-up of Beavis and Butthead‘s juvenile sense of humor with Team America‘s suggestive (offensive?) usage of stop-motion animation.

The long and short of it? If you’re a fan of things like South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut or even just the episodes of the show where Satan plays a prominent role in the narrative, this gleefully profane trip to…

Lights Out

Release: Friday, July 22, 2016 [Theater*] Written by: Eric Heisserer Directed by: David F. Sandberg In Swedish filmmaker David F. Sandberg's feature debut, an expanded realization of a short film he made in 2013, something sinister lurks in the absence of light and enjoys tormenting anyone unfortunate enough to be in the same room with it. That is, of … Continue reading Lights Out

The Infiltrator

Release: Wednesday, July 13, 2016 [Theater] Written by: Ellen Brown Furman Directed by: Brad Furman Brad Furman wasn't looking to infiltrate more elite groups of directors who had earlier tackled the gritty but ever fascinating subject of the drug trafficking epidemic in America when he paired up with Bryan Cranston. That much is clear just based on the relative nonchalance … Continue reading The Infiltrator

Deathgasm

Release: Friday, October 2, 2015 (limited) [Netflix] Written by: Jason Lei Howden Directed by: Jason Lei Howden Visual effects artist Jason Lei Howden's blood-splattered horror-comedy debut may operate within some fairly limited confines but budgetary constraints seemingly have no effect on the creativity of his project and its metal-as-f**k attitude. So you come to expect a few things with a title like … Continue reading Deathgasm

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Release: Friday, July 8, 2016 [Theater] Written by: Andrew Jay Cohen; Brendan O'Brien Directed by: Jake Szymanski Have you saved the date for the Stangle wedding yet? There's really no need if you don't typically RSVP for the raunch, for the kind of testosterone-induced antics that invariably wind up with someone's penis in something it should not be, good-looking … Continue reading Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Ghostbusters

Release: Friday, July 15, 2016 [Theater] Written by: Paul Feig; Katie Dippold Directed by: Paul Feig It's fun, and perhaps more than anything inspiring, watching a foursome of funny women transforming and transcending in what was supposed to be a god-awful Ghostbusters reboot. Yeah, I said it -- I enjoyed the new movie. Bring it on, man. I ain't afraid of … Continue reading Ghostbusters
