Straight to the point, The Martian was the best movie I have seen in a few years. It is a great piece of science fiction but stays rooted (for the most part) in fundamental scientific principles. The plot line keeps viewers engaged while balancing micro and macro stories. In other words, we get to see […]
Entourage was the first television series I ever binge-watched and quite possibly the reason I failed my first grad school exam. Was it worth it? …. maybe. If you take away all the glitz and glamour, you take away all the parties, and you take away all the skanks and misogyny, Entourage at its core […]
This is the only way I know how to describe how intensely enthralled I was with the storyline and characters throughout the entirety of this film, only to walk away questioning what I had just seen. Let me explain… True Story is based on the real life story and book of memoirs outlining that story […]
I’m not sure anyone really has the words to accurately describe a Blue Man Group show. There’s probably no need for it now, because at this point, most people have probably seen some form of a Blue Man Group performance, whether at a theater or on television commercials. But can you imagine being one of […]
James Franco took time away from filming his upcoming screen adaptation of John Steinbeck’s In Dubious Battle to talk with a crowd at The Plaza Theatre in Atlanta earlier this morning. The discussion was part of the Atlanta Film Festival, being held in multiple venues throughout the city from March 20th through 29th. Franco shared […]
There have been a lot of sequels and remakes released for classic comedies within the last year – “classic” being used as a relatively loose term. Fans of the originals have been excited for just about all of them, but that excitement more often than not has to come with a side of caution. I’ve […]
Three nights ago, in preparation of the second installment (well, the second Farrelly Brothers installment) of Dumb and Dumber, I sat down on the couch with a cold beer, fired up Netflix, and took a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Not because I needed to… I could have recited every line from the movie that […]
It was difficult for a generation of elementary school boys to accept that their beloved Ninja Turtles were getting a digitally animated makeover by Michael Bay. Granted it’s a pretty bad-ass, buffer, Lou Ferrigno-esque body makeover, but turtles with nostrils? Come on. Anatomically correct or not, Leo, Mikey, Raph, and Donny looked weird. My childhood […]
The gruesome twosome of Schmidt and Jenko is back in action in 22 Jump Street, only this time these old ass thirty-somethings are trying to pass off as late teen college students at MC State. They’re there on investigation of a new drug exploding on campus, they’re there to party, and who knows…maybe they’re there […]
It's awards season; and if there was ever a movie to win for Most Typecast Main Characters, it would be Ride Along.
Martin Scorsese could direct a film about paint drying and grass growing, and I'd pay the full admission price to see it. The man is a legendary artist and has a vision for film like no other.
In case you missed the media and marketing firestorm for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Ron Burgundy and the best damn news team are back in action.
