Hail, Caesar! (2016)

One of the things that you start to notice after you’ve taken several of the journeys of Joel and Ethan Coen is that often when you get to the end you’ve sort of arrived back at the beginning. Little headway has been made though a few lessons have been learned. There is a glorious life-goes-on-quality […]

The Ridiculous 6 (2015)

It occurs to me that the worst thing that can ever happen to a comedian is to reach a point at which the general audience moves from “What has happened to you?” to the lower depths of “How do you keep getting work?” Such is the commentary on Adam Sandler whose recent spate of disastrous […]

The Intern (2015)

The Intern is like a stack of pancakes. It’s warm, sweet and leaves you with a touch of a belly ache. You are, no doubt, drawn in by the casting and who could resist a movie that brings together Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway? They’re the best actors of their respective generations, but – […]

Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015)

It’s been quite a month. First I had the pleasure of seeing Jaws in the theater, then Sharknado 2 with the “Rifftrax Live!” treatment. Add to that Ant-Man, the Minions and finally seeing the new Star Wars trailer in a theater and you might say I’ve had a July to remember. Now it comes to […]

Rifftrax Live! Sharknado 2: The Second One (2015)

It is difficult to describe the irony of the fact that within the span of one week I’ve seen Jaws and Sharknado 2 on the big screen – a better July at the movies does not reside within my recent memory. If those two movies played on a double bill at a drive-in theater this […]

Faith of Our Fathers – a.k.a. To the Wall (2015)

I have no objection to the output of PureFlix Entertainment. Christian movie goers should have their films on the big screen just as much as fans of horror or comedy or action pictures. The writers and directors of the films put out by PureFlix have set out on a mission, to give a forgotten audience […]

Vacation (2015)

Vacation (2015)

In the course of sitting through the godawful new Vacation sequel, I find that my mind drifts not to the Chevy Chase classic but to the recent remake of Poltergeist.  Both are unnecessary down to their very core and neither gives any indication that the filmmakers had any real desire to make a movie that […]

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015)

I am not as angry with Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 as I have reason to be. The movie is too lethargic and bland to earn any sort of rage; the closest I come to anger is that while I was watching the movie I had an intense desire to be anywhere else – a […]
