In the wake of Charlie Sheen’s nervous breakdown and being fired from his popular sitcom Two and a Half Men, FX decided to capitalize on this different type of fame by putting Sheen back on the air as an anger management counselor having a casual affair with fellow counselor Kate (Selma Blair; Cruel Intentions) and […]

Draft Day

Draft Day

| April 9, 2014 | 0 Comments

When I first saw the trailer for the film Draft Day, directed by Ivan Reitman and starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner, I was less than enthused.  Although I love the NFL and am a hardcore Chicago Bears fan, I have never watched, nor have I ever had any interest in, the NFL draft.  I wasn’t […]

The Nut Job

I wasn’t actually aware that Universal Studios made animated films.  I had to google what else they’ve done, and nothing on the list stood out to me except for their early efforts with Land Before Time and An American Tail.  Those are quire reminiscent of my childhood, but Universal has spent the 25 years since […]

Iron Sky – Director’s Cut

Iron Sky – Director’s Cut

| March 15, 2014 | 0 Comments

Iron Sky has been on my must watch list for a while now.  I love really bad movies and you can tell from the trailer that this one is going to be one of the all time great bad movies.  The premise is simple enough: after World War II, the defeated Nazi regime retreated to […]

Instructions Not Included

Instructions Not Included

| February 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

Eugenio Derbez (Jack & Jill, Girl in Progress) has created his masterpiece… his magnum opus if you will. Although, Eugenio hasn’t done very many notable titles, Instructions Not Included (Lionsgate) puts him on the map in a serious way. I say that he created this film and what I mean is that he directed, acted […]

Bad Milo

Bad Milo

| January 19, 2014 | 0 Comments

I like to think I can sit through pretty much anything.  There have been 2 movies in my life that I remember being so painful that I had to stop watching after about 15 minutes:  Repo: The Genetic Opera, and the 1970s made or TV remake of Double Indemnity.  I’m not saying Bad Milo is […]

Family Guy: Volume 12

After 2 cancellations and over 200 episodes, Family Guy is better than ever, and in case you haven’t heard the good news, Fox has begun releasing entire seasons of the hit animated series on DVD rather than breaking them up into separate, shorter sets.  This Volume 12 set captures the entire 11th season of the […]

The Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street

| December 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

‘Wolf in Wolves’ Clothing’ The Wolf of Wall Street is being marketed as a black comedy. Fine, but this label (usually) denigrates any serious implications of important matters discussed. Watching the 179 minutes of Martin Scorsese’s new entertainment (a short three hours) finds audience members, regretfully, guffawing so loud they miss the purpose of the […]
