“I can stick this up your nose to the hilt OR you can watch Hell and Back.”
“…I’m thinking.”

I can’t remember the last time I read a blurb about a movie and was this wrong. The Robot Chicken production company is making a stop motion movie starring Bob Odenkirk and Mila Kunis?!?  And featuring Susan Sarandon?  Yes please!

And then I saw the movie.  Read the rest of this entry

Tammy movie review

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

My score:  90%

I can’t say I was too excited to see the Leaves of Grass title on a movie as I’m not a fan of Walt Whitman, and when I looked closer and saw that Felicity’s Keri Russell was in this flick, I almost threw in the towel.  However, the poster inspired me to give it a try.  I love Ed Norton, and he’s playing twin brothers in this movie, and one of his characters is holding a crossbow – looks like hilarious antics are about to ensue!
