I’m a big fan of Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  Beyond his appearing in some of my favorite movies over the past several years (Brick, Looper) it’s a real joy to watch him interviewed because you know how sincerely he loves being an actor and entertaining people, and how aware he is of the life he’s been blessed […]

The back of the case for Robot Chicken: Season 6 promises “The cybernetic fowl from the adult swim late-night animated bizarre programming block is back with another full season of Emmy Award-winning stop motion comedy insanity!  Twenty colossal, mega-sized quarter-hour episodes!” That sums it up quite nicely. Robot Chicken is one of those shows that […]

I’ve always loved watching stupid idiots getting themselves into (even more) incredibly stupid situations. Especially the kind that only seem to get worse and worse. I guess that’s why I adore this show so much. As the title says, I’m obviously speaking about Rob McElhenney’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. From the moment the first episodes starts, […]

When I see reviews that declare a film to be “full of heart” or some such conventional phrasing, I tend to interpret that as a sign that I shouldn’t expect anything original from it. After all, filmmakers can easily manipulate audiences’ emotional states by drawing on time-tested formulas. Want to elicit tears of joy? Have […]

As Luck Would Have It

Dark comedies have long been a part of the cinematic cesspool. They are hard to accomplish successfully and appeal to a limited crowd. No other genre so boldly confronts the desensitization of society to the point where life-and-death situations occur while hilarity is simultaneously ensuing. The drastic differences between the humorous viewpoints and the not-so-humorous […]

Deadball is- well, maybe that’s the best place to start. Deadball simply is. Even days after watching the movie, the fact that Deadball exists is nothing short of amazing. Not because the movie itself is shocking, but because I’m still trying to figure out… why? I mean, I know a blame lot of swill I […]
