The Peanuts Movie Review

I am fairly certain that, in the world of comedy (if not the world in general), it is a sin for me to say that I have never been much of a Peanuts fan.  That’s not to say that I didn’t like the works of the Peanuts characters – I do enjoy their most famous … Continue reading The Peanuts Movie Review

Insurgent Review

SPOILER ALERT With a bad Italian accent a la The Amanda Show, say it with me: “This is better – much better!” As we all should know because I’m super important, I have my issues with Divergent.  This world and its people are entirely nonsensical, and I had such a hard time taking it all halfway seriously.  Fortunately, … Continue reading Insurgent Review

Star Wars – The Force Awakens Review

I love home video.  I absolutely adore it.  I get nostalgic about VHS tapes, I collect DVDs, I obsess over digital copies, and I drool at the majesty of a beautiful Blu-Ray on an HD screen.  I must emphasize this because I’m about to say something a wee bit unfavorable about home video: it may have ruined … Continue reading Star Wars – The Force Awakens Review

Hotel Transylvania 2 Review

Irrational Man Review

Alright, children, sit down and shut up – it’s story time. After watching Magic in the Moonlight, it occurred to me that Woody Allen (since he makes one new movie each year) would have a movie coming out soon for 2015 – if it wasn’t out already – and this would be one of my last … Continue reading Irrational Man Review

Paper Towns Review

Alright, I think it’s time for us to have “the talk.” As a proud cinema snob, this is tough for me to talk about openly, but we need to discuss the true implications of “the C word” – cliché.  We critics have always assumed that it’s a Cinema Sin for a story to be cliché … Continue reading Paper Towns Review
