This Is 40

This Is 40

Friday, January 4, 2013 No Comments

This Is 40 was much more somber for an Apatow film, as it wasn’t as funny as his previous works, but that doesn’t mean it was bad. It’s more a personal film about his experience turning 40, and you could definitely feel that self-reflective quality in the writing. Not only that, but it also stars […]

Seven Psychopaths

Seven Psychopaths

Thursday, November 8, 2012 4 Comments

I usually lambast films with too many characters, but Seven Psychopaths was able to create a cohesive and compelling story even with, as the title denotes, seven psychopaths (plus the protagonist). The characters were rich, the story was intriguing, with considerable helpings of both gore and humor, and the acting was, well, just look at […]

The Campaign

The Campaign… or what I saw of it

Monday, August 20, 2012 No Comments

In all my years of watching movies, I think I’ve only ever dozed off 6 times during a first viewing of a film. I usually maintain that sleeping during a film says a lot about the quality of a film. Though when I saw The Campaign, I was actually quite tired going into it, so […]

Jeff Who Lives at Home

Jeff, Who Lives at Home

Monday, June 25, 2012 No Comments

Clocking in at an hour twenty-two, Jeff, Who Lives at Home is short, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t function well as a film. As the saying goes, size doesn’t matter (unless you’re referring to penis size, in which case it definitely does). I’m not calling it a great film as it definitely felt belabored […]

Safety Not Guaranteed

Safety Not Guaranteed

Thursday, June 14, 2012 1 Comment

I’m always hesitant when it comes to independent, quirky comedies. Just the term independent conjures an image of something unpolished and unrefined. The truth is, most of the independent comedies I have seen have been really charming and quite hilarious, and Safety Not Guaranteed, a film about time travel, is one of those movies. It’s […]

Cabin in the Woods

Thursday, April 12, 2012 1 Comment

The various genres in Cabin in the Woods were unfurled across the film in equal doses, creating a consistency that was very palatable. Generous flecks of comedy were sprinkled in with similarly sized bits of horror and sci-fi, to create a steady rhythm that carried me through this very strange and very fun film. However, […]

21 Jump Street

Monday, March 19, 2012 No Comments

I’m running out of ways to say that though movie so-and-so was funny, it was still inane, and heavily soaked in penis humor. These types of movies are a dime a dozen now. And, as I’ve said before, it doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy them in the least. I can allow myself to be […]

Conan O'Brien Can't Stop

Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop

Thursday, January 19, 2012 No Comments

Watching Conan O’Brien on his perpetual endeavor to entertain was certainly interesting, but I didn’t feel it was enough to carry an entire documentary. Also, aside from brief glimpses into his emotional condition, a good percentage of Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop was spent either showing clips from his shows (which weren’t nearly as enjoyable as […]

Winnie the Pooh

Monday, July 18, 2011 2 Comments

I’m torn. I absolutely loved Winnie the Pooh. It was well written, playing magnificently to both kids and adults, and a treat for the eyes, featuring animation lovingly emulating the classic style. However, it was far too short, even with the pre-feature short. As it reached the end, I was left wondering where the second […]

Horrible Bosses

Horrible Bosses

Tuesday, July 12, 2011 No Comments

I think my favorite part of Horrible Bosses was Charlie Day. Not just because he was probably the funniest aspect of the movie, but because I’m a very big fan of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and it makes me happy to see one of the bunch (aside from Danny DeVito) get a role in […]
