The Three Stooges

| July 19, 2012

Somehow I convinced myself going into The Three Stooges that there existed a distinct possibility that the movie would be more akin to the passable Marx Brothers homage Brain Donors (1992) than… well… the movie that Twentieth Century Fox was advertising. And somehow, clinging perhaps to fond memories of Kingpin (1996), I also thought that […]

Girls Gone Dead

Girls Gone Dead

| July 19, 2012

There’s a fine line between satirizing the exploitation of something like Girls Gone Wild and becoming that which is supposedly being satirized.

Get the Gringo

Mel Gibson (Lethal Weapon, Passion of the Christ) has had an interesting life the last few years.  Repeated scandals involving alcohol abuse and anti-Semitism have landed him in the wrong spotlight for a while now, but it’s refreshing to see him start to make an attempt to return to some semblance of his former self […]
