This was a little disappointing, but I can’t say my expectations were that high to begin with. The story is about a group of animals that live in a city park who are trying to prepare their food stores for winter, and a couple of outcast animals who prefer to look out for themselves rather […]

A Million Laughs in the West: MacFarlane Hits the Bullseye
The trailers have been hilarious, we all loved Ted and Family Guy, and Seth MacFarlane is a modern day renaissance man, so it wasn’t hard to believe that this was going to be good. But I’ll admit, I had my reservations. This is MacFarlane’s first major turn in front of the camera as an actor, […]
My Compliments to the Chef: Favreau’s New Film Cooked to Order
Honestly, this was the most fun I’ve had at the movies this year. I am saying this even after I wrote two reviews on Captain America, not because it was better, but because I had a smile on my face almost the entire way through. I loved Cap 2 and totally nerded out the entire […]
This was totally adorable, but admittedly, not the greatest animated film of the past decade. The story focuses on Turbo (voiced by Ryan Reynolds), the little snail who dreamed of being in the Indy 500 and racing with the big boys. In the real world, he “works” in a tomato garden with a bunch of […]
Laugh with the Sinners: Get to Know The Wolf of Wall Street
This was a big movie when it came out. It was sexy, funny, terrifying, and unbelievable in many ways. It’s story about a middle class young man who finds out how to be rich and does just about anything and everything to stay that way. But out of all the guff I’d heard prior to […]
Parenthood, Rogen-ized: Do You Like Your Neighbors?
The previews for this movie have been pretty hardcore, and if you’ve watched the red band trailers, you know it promises to be not only raunchy but filthy. The film does not disappoint. In a good way. Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne star as the couple with a new baby and a new house who […]
Glitz AND Feels: Swing By for Amazing Spider-Man 2
They have promoted the shit out of this movie, maybe even more so after seeing how well Captain America: The Winter Soldier has done at the box office so far (and that wasn’t even a summer blockbuster), but I’m not quite sure it’s going to be enough to beat out Spidey’s Marvel sequel bro, Cap […]
So Nice I Saw It Twice: Capt. America Review Part II
Admittedly, this is not the first movie I’ve ever seen more than once in theaters. I saw Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers at least seven times in theaters, and if I had had the time/money, I would’ve seen Star Trek Into Darkness at least two or three times in theaters. But Captain America: […]
Review: Hit and Run
I follow Dax Shepard on Twitter, so I knew about this movie when it came out, but I never got around to seeing it. I just found it on Netflix recently, and I was in a binging mood so I watched it. I’d heard it was good, and now I get why! First of all, […]
Book Your Stay at The Grand Budapest Hotel: Anderson Makes It Well Worth Your While
I’ve been putting off writing about this film because I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to do it justice. I’m still afraid of that, but I figured I better just jump in and run with it or I’ll procrastinate forever. First off, if you’ve seen pretty much any of Wes Anderson’s films, […]
