Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: First Trailer Hits!

Since its announcement, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot has stirred quite a bit of conversation. Although most of the early details worried fans about what the Michael Bay reboot film would bring, now that the first trailer is here, I’m really optimistic. As always, trailer first, then some discussion. Right away, we find out that William Fitchner (who may or may not be The Shredder) was working with April O’Neil’s father in the hopes of getting crime out of their city (which I suppose is probably New York City).Read More


Movie Review: The Losers

The 14-year old boys definition of freakin’ awesome! After learning that their handler, Max (Jason Patric), has set them up, a group of disavowed CIA operatives led by Clay — aka the Colonel (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) — bands together to bring down their betrayers in this slick action thriller. This film is based off a graphic novel that I have never read, but from what this film makes it out to be, it’s a crazy read. To say the least, this film has a lot of things blowing up, peopleRead More


Movie Review: Friends with Kids

Good-looking people should just stop boning each other if they don’t want kids. The film centers a group of close friends at a moment in time when children arrive and everything changes. The last two singles in the group (Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt) observe the toll that having kids has taken on their friends’ relationship and wonder if there is a better way. They decide to have a child together and then date other people. After last year’s sleeper hit ’Bridesmaids’ came out it seems like every person in the worldRead More


Movie Review: The DICTATOR

It’s not often that a satirical film with an exorbitant amount of absurdist humor manages to hold my attention for 83 minutes, but Sacha Baron Cohen’s “The Dictator” unexpectedly managed to do just that. I knew this movie was racist, odious, bizarre, and just all out wrong, but I cannot deny that fact that somehow the director, Larry Charles, manages to make this all work. At the axis of this film is the dictator of the fictional North African “Republic of Wadiya,” is the foolhardy, malevolent Admiral General Aladeen (SachaRead More


No “Jew Crew” reunion for “Knocked Up” Spinoff

The world of Judd Apatows hit Knocked Up is coming back to the big screen, only this time its about Pete and Debbie (played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann). In Knocked Up they were supporting characters as Allison’s (Katherine Heigl) sister and brother-in-law, and often times their messed up adventures in matrimony stole the movie from the two leads. It is therefore no surprise that Apatow is going back to these two characters to explore those misadventures more thoroughly. The movie titled This is 40 is a look atRead More


Drive for 66: Month 4 (April 2011)

In 2011, my goal is to see 66 movies I had never seen before the year began.  The start was optimism-inspiring for the potential to surpass the goal.  In January and February I saw a combined 11 films, putting me right on track.  I hit 18 movies by the end of March, putting me on average of 6 movies per month. That puts me on pace to hit 72 movies this year, but I try not to assume too much before June is halfway through, and at that point IRead More


Spike Presents Interesting Awards Show – Scream 2009

Up until a couple weeks ago, I didn’t even know there was such a thing as the Scream Awards.  I saw a commercial on Spike TV, noticing not only lots of prominent celebrities, but also a crowd full of costumed people who looked as though they were attending a Halloween party – and some of their costumes were really good. That’s all I needed to see to convince me to set the DVR to record it. What I found was a unique awards show which I really enjoyed. I’m notRead More
