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 […]

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 […]
