How could a movie about a compelling subject with this cast have so little teeth? Monuments Men just doesn’t have any bite – the flick can’t hold an audience.
OK, I’m done with the weird mouth metaphors. Read the rest of this entry
I know, it’s only September and I shouldn’t be doing Christmas posts yet, but screw you, you picky prick! I found the most amazing page of a Sears Wish Book that ever existed and the fact that Farrah Fawcett is included in this situation is only half the reason this is great.
OK, probably more than half… Read the rest of this entry
Last time on Fun with Google Autocomplete, we learned that Americans were bad at history and distinguishing between fantasy and reality. This time, we see that Google is doing a great job of anticipating our concerns about the NFL and their most notorious players. Read the rest of this entry
If the trailer isn’t evidence enough, Mr. Mom is positively dripping with 1980s situational comedy. It’s even got three 80s powerhouse names: John Hughes, Martin Mull and Teri Garr. It couldn’t be any more 80s unless He-Man was in it riding a flat nosed skateboard while singing "Thriller." Read the rest of this entry
I can’t think of another product that’s as likely to incite violence as the Knee Defender. Ripped right from the most primal and self serving areas of the human brain, the Knee Defender exists only to antagonize your fellow air traveler. Read the rest of this entry
I grew up watching reruns of The Odd Couple on TV. I’m a big fan – I even had a hamster named Oscar. Yet, I’ve just gotten around to seeing the film based on Neil Simon’s play this past weekend.

We saw the third (and final?) film in the franchise you didn’t ask for (or didn’t know you wanted, depending on your point of view) in The Expendables 3 this weekend and I must say that, for what it’s worth, this is the best film yet in the franchise. Read the rest of this entry

Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, PA is the best bakery on the planet. You’re welcome. Go there.
You might be thinking, "But I don’t live anywhere near Bethlehem, PA," to which I must respond, "I just told you it’s the best bakery on earth. Rent, lease, buy or steal a car!" There are cannolis to be had!
(And no, I have no idea why the graphics in the video read "Vegan Sweets Bakery" despite the fact that you clearly read "Vegan Treats Bakery" on the walls of the bakery itself. There’s probably a reason… but I can’t figure out what it could be.)
Ah, North by Northwest – a quintessential Alfred Hitchcock movie! Is it the most famous? The most memorable? The most popular? Is it the best of Hitchcock’s movies? One thing’s for sure – it’s certainly a great flick!
At this point, it’s not news that Muppets Most Wanted is a gigantic disappointment, yet I was still shocked by the depths of its awfulness when we finally saw it this past weekend. Read the rest of this entry
