Here’s the fourth Spoiler Discussion from Quick Reviews, this time, tacking The Overnight. This little indie stars Taylor Schilling, Adam Scott, Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godreche and I don’t so much review the flick as a whole as I do explain why it didn’t really work for me. And yet, it’s still a decent flick. Read the rest of this entry
It’s been a while. Shooting is done, but the war is not yet over. Here’s a rare video update: Read the rest of this entry
The Crush is one of those horror/suspense comedies where you yell at the protagonist, blissfully unaware that Cary Elwes is portraying a fictional character that can’t hear your through time and space. And I love every minute of it. Read the rest of this entry
What can I say about Darkman? It’s very much a product of its time in terms of its action movie-ness, yet it’s clear Sam Raimi wanted to make a superhero movie back when studios weren’t knocking each other open to buy up licenses. So we can an original character and a new franchise and get to hear Liam Neeson do an American accent. Read the rest of this entry
I know you guys are busy dominating the TV short season with Game of Thrones (although The Walking Dead franchise clearly has its eyes on the crown), but I’ve got a pitch for ya. Once the race to win the Iron Throne is over, it’s only logical that you find another big project to turn into your next must see series (forgive me if I don’t think Ballers is going to make your subscriber rates jump) and it really ought to be Harry Potter.

Tammy may be the best testament there can ever be the amazing talent that is Melissa McCarthy. The marketing was terrible, the script is rife with problems and the cast is bloated to the point of distraction… and the movie’s still entertaining. Read the rest of this entry
PRO TIP: Do not listen to this man’s story.
The producers of Across the Universe made a bet that nostalgia would be enough to make a profit on their investment… and they lost. Once you watch the movie, it’s easy to see where they went wrong. (Spoiler alert: EVERYWHERE!) Read the rest of this entry
I’m pretty sure I’ve seen most of The Lake House, the 2006 film about time travelling letters that reunited Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock for the first time since Speed. Before everyone was bored to tears by this star-studded romance through time, there was The Love Letter, a Hallmark TV movie that has nearly the same plot and rather than being stupid, it’s just kinda insane.

Today’s movie trailer mania has some melodrama, comedy, legitimate film. Let’s have at it!
So many movies come out every year and I gotta be honest with ya; most of em look like the tightly coiled piles my dogs leave on the lawn. Here’s my take on four new movie trailers.
