Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Quick Reviews)


 

Here’s the first episode of Quick Reviews – these ramblings on Star Wars: The Force Awakens went on longer than I wanted, but hey, it’s Star Wars.  I can talk about Star Wars all day long, never mind five minutes.

The Best & Worst Films of 2015


2015-movies

It’s movie awards season (though if you’re brave enough to sit through the Golden Globes or the Oscars, you’re tougher than I am), so I thought I’d drop a list of what films I liked and what made me wished I’d stayed home.  Here’s my ranking breakdown of the movies I saw in 2015.  (Keep in mind, I’m still playing catchup, so this post with probably get updated.)

How I learned to stop worrying & not watch the Golden Globes

Obviously.

Deciding that one piece of art is better than another one is an arbitrary process. At best, one could call it a matter of opinion and at worst, a futile exercise. Since no one made me watch, I was able to bypass the 2016 Golden Globes all together and I’m better off for it. Here’s a few reasons why. Read the rest of this entry

The Star Wars franchise and its love of the ticking clock


force-awakens-poster

If it’s on the poster, it’s not a spoiler.

If you’ve not familiar with the term, a ticking clock movie is when the heroes need to do X before the bad guys do Y because if they don’t, the good guys lose, and what fun is that?  A good example of a ticking clock movie would be Speed, Back to the Future, Star Wars… Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and now Star Wars:  The Force Awakens.  I can see how this is both a good and bad thing.  Read the rest of this entry

Trainwreck movie review


trainwreck

It’s incredible how rare a movie like Trainwreck has become.  While the flick clearly includes (and embraces) improvisation (as Judd Apatow movies tend to do), this is a tightly scripted comedy (by star Amy Schumer) with a heart.  Read the rest of this entry

Star Wars The Force Awakens movie review

Obviously, Star Wars The Force Awakens could never truly meet expectations. The idea of restoring order to the franchise after the disappointing Prequel Trilogy is an exciting prospect and the trailers make big promises. But does the movie deliver?

Charming Christmas movie review


charming-christmas

It’s all new! (Except for the story.)

It’s Charming Christmas, new for 2015! Three women! One dress! One story you’ll barely be able to remember five minutes after you’ve finished watching it!  Read the rest of this entry

A Christmas Carol (1999) movie review


a-christmas-carol-spirit-of-christmas-past

Admittedly, the design of the Spirit of Christmas Past is as weird as the Spirit of Christmas Future is cheap.

I’m sure you’ve seen A Christmas Carol before, but Patrick Stewart as Scrooge is not to be missed.  Read the rest of this entry

A Christmas Detour movie review


A-Christmas-Detour

It’s a movie as insincere as this green screen publicity photo, and more than that, it’s a Volcano/Dante’s Peak situation as this is exact same movie as Lifetime’s The Flight Before Christmas (both movies are new this year).  I give you HIV victim hating Candace Cameron Bure’s A Christmas Detour.  Read the rest of this entry

The Flight Before Christmas (2015) movie review


flight-before-christmas-family-matters

“As days go by, we’re gonna fill our house with… Christmas cheer.”

The best thing about The Flight Before Christmas is that it brings Mayim Bialik together with the parents from Family Matters… or the cop from Die Hard, however you want to think of it.   Let’s get this one over with Good, Bad and the Ugly style. Read the rest of this entry
