The Brothers Grimsby

Release: Friday, March 11, 2016 [Theater] Written by: Sacha Baron Cohen; Phil Johnston; Peter Baynham Directed by: Louis Leterrier There’s something about Sacha Baron Cohen that really makes you feel like a complete idiot. He’s become really good at that because here I went, blinded by my own boredom, to a screening where I was the only viewerContinue reading “The Brothers Grimsby”

So, in my ‘old age’ that’s not really old age but is fun to say old age because that’sContinue reading “TBT: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)”

Kill Me Three Times

Release: Friday, April 10, 2015 [Netflix] Written by: James McFarland Directed by: Kriv Stenders Simon Pegg embraces his inner baddie and Kill Me Three Times is somewhat better because of it. ‘Somewhat’ is the operative word here as Pegg, even in a killer role (e-hem), isn’t enough to make the film worth watching. Too choppily paced to be considered an intentionalContinue reading “Kill Me Three Times”

Chappie

Release: Friday, March 6, 2015 [Theater] Written by: Neill Blomkamp; Terri Tatchell Directed by: Neill Blomkamp The nonsense that is Chappie makes one sorely nostalgic for the days of Elysium and awkward Jodie Foster performances. At least in that semi-disappointing spectacle we were teased with the notion of leaving behind a civilization that Neill Blomkamp clearly despises. Here, no suchContinue reading “Chappie”

Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Release: Friday, February 20, 2015 [Theater] Written by: Josh Heald Directed by: Steve Pink I, along with six other brave souls, ended up in a theater that was playing a film titled Hot Tub Time Machine 2 because apparently the original had that kind of effect on me. I’m now doubting all kinds of things aboutContinue reading “Hot Tub Time Machine 2”
