The Last American Virgin

The Last American Virgin

| August 25, 2015 | 0 Comments

The Last American Virgin (1982) is The Cannon Group’s attempt at a coming-of-age teen sex comedy that, while not entirely successful, stands apart from the others in its own right. In the realm of teen sex comedies, it serves as a logical descendant of Porky’s (released earlier the same year) and is a clear spiritual […]

BOGDANOVICH RETURNS TO CINEMATIC FARCE. Exclusive Interview by Paul Fischer in Los Angeles.

It would be fair to say that iconic director, author and some time actor Peter Bogdanovich is nothing if not a Hollywood survivor. An enfant terrible from Hollywood’s independent landscape of the 70s and 80s, the acclaimed director of such classics as The Last Picture Show, Paper Moon and What’s up Doc? continues to defy […]

Joe’s Mission: Impossible Ranking

| August 7, 2015 | 0 Comments

I thought that instead of just doing a review of Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation, I’d take the opportunity to offer my opinion for how the five movies in the franchise rate against each other.  I’ve been hearing a lot of people on the podcasts I listen to rank the espionage thrillers, and I wanted a […]

Fantastic Four

As I write this, Fantastic Four has a 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and honestly I don’t know why it’s being so universally panned.  It’s not perfect by any means, and I’ll get to my issues with it, but the predominant criticism I keep reading is that it’s boring.  I was never bored by it.  […]

Pixels and Why Video Game Films Suck

Pixels and Why Video Game Films Suck

| August 5, 2015 | 0 Comments

2015′s Pixels is one of the biggest flops to come out of this year’s summer blockbuster season. An Adam Sandler vehicle purporting to pay tribute to the golden age of video games while making it clear that the film’s creators find them to be outdated and lame, Pixels ironically pressed all of the wrong buttons.

I did something new before going to see this latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: I actually went back and read old Ant-Man comic books.  Not that I’ve been opposed to doing this before other movies, but now I have a great means of doing so: I signed up for Marvel Unlimited, which provides […]
