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 […]

Get Hard (2015)

Get Hard is a movie that puts me in a strange position.  It’s nothing special, and in some spots actually kind of terrible.  Yet, at times it’s kind of genial and fun which is odd given its raunchy subject matter.  At a moment in movie history that is giving me comedy voids like Unfinished Business […]

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014)

Being an actor must be one of the most psychologically tasking professions that man has yet created. You’re asked to move from skin to skin, from soul to soul, from psychology to psychology, from paying gig to paying gig, and also to traverse the minefield of box office success. If you’re successful, you’re asked to […]

The DUFF (2015)

The hurt on Bianca’s face is appropriate the day she is informed by an otherwise good friend that her place in the high school pecking order is to be “The DUFF” – The Designated Ugly Fat Friend, meaning that she is the friend that other girls keep around to make themselves look more attractive. “It’s […]

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015)

I’ve already seen one miserable movie this year about a group of guys who do horrible things to each other, and here I am just a few weeks later dealing with another one. The chief difference between The Loft and Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is that one is a thriller and the other is […]

The Interview (2014)

It wasn’t worth it. After all the news, the threats, the controversy, the hacks, the delays, the most talked about film of the 2014 turns out to be nothing more than a weak, third-rate man-child comedy that isn’t funny enough to fill a three minute sketch on Saturday Night Live. To think of what could […]
