Why I’m NOT Seeing #JusticeLeague

Here’s the new episode of Quick Reviews, a quick essay on why I decided not to see Justice League in the theater. Warner Bros doesn’t want you to see it – they blocked it from YouTube – it’s the only episode that’s ever been blocked! First, they dropped a copyright claim, which, while ridiculous (reviews and essays are clearly covered by Fair Use and the video is less than six minutes long and doesn’t center around any one of their films, so it can’t be a footage issue) at least makes sense because YouTube policy allows them to collect ad revenue from said video (which is also dumb because I just don’t have much of an audience), but then they blocked the video entirely – probably because of my negative review of the DCEU.

The Maze Runner movie review

I’m no young adult genre expert, but I’d say The Maze Runner rides an interesting line between “thoroughly entertaining” and “not making any sense at all.”  It’s an interesting case – the movie works just as well as it fails.  Join me, won’t you, while I try to make sense and celebrate this flick?  Read the rest of this entry

What if (movie review)

Watch the trailer if you will, but be it known that is an AWFUL representation of What If and the complex issues it represents.  Or, this ain’t yo mama’s RomCom.  Read the rest of this entry

Pitch Perfect (movie review)

I believe it’s accurate to say that Pitch Perfect is universally liked, if not loved.  81% of reviewers and a 83% of the audience gave it a positive review (Rotten Tomatoes), so that’s at the very least a consensus that people on earth like this movie… and I have no idea why.   Read the rest of this entry

100 Greatest Movies of All Time

This is as subjective as it gets, but anyway, I humbly present my list of the 100 greatest movies of all time in no particular order. Read the rest of this entry

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring – Extended Edition (movie review)

Now that The Hobbit has wrapped up, we went home and started rewatching The Lord of the Rings and of course started with The Fellowship of the Ring (as per The Battle of Five Armies’ suggestion). Fellowship has always been my favorite (and only the Extended Edition will do), but it also makes it clear how very much The Hobbit movies pale in comparison. But that’s a discussion for another day – today, I’m talkin’ about the One Ring, yo! Read the rest of this entry

Only Low Budget Horror Movies Get Major Releases; Other Genres Can Go Screw

I never thought about it until I saw the trailer for Unfriended (AKA Offline, AKA Cybernatural), but I can’t recall a super low-budget indie flick getting a major release that wasn’t a horror movie.  Is it just me?  What does that mean?  I have a thought…  Read the rest of this entry

Total Recall 2012 (movie review)

Thirty percent of critics gave Total Recall (the 2012 remake) a positive review. That sounds about right.

The Interview (movie review)

Honestly, I’m not sure why The Interview is at 52% on the Tomatometer. It’s well performed, beautifully photographed, has a message (on some level) and most importantly, it’s a comedy and it’s funny. Read the rest of this entry

Mr. Peabody & Sherman (movie review)


I know, I know – the trailer is terrible.  Ignore it!

I gotta tell ya, I had no ambition to see Mr. Peabody & Sherman.  ZERO.  But, I heard it was good and I had the opportunity to see it for free (on a plane), so I gave it a chance and holy hell, was it worth it.  Read the rest of this entry

The Running Man (movie review)

The The Hunger Games exists only because The Running Man blazed the trail.  There, I said it.  Deal with that!   Read the rest of this entry
