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
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
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.

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
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
A Walk Among the Tombstones stars Liam Neeson… and other actors that are completely overshadowed by the big dog (including Matthew from Downton Abbey). Look, I tried to get ya’ll in and out of here quickly with today’s Movie Review, but I sorta failed. Now that I think about it, that’s a good analogy for this movie. Read the rest of this entry
