Casa de mi Padre

Thursday, August 9, 2012 No Comments

With extremely apparent prosthetic props and backdrops that weren’t even remotely realistic, I figured out fairly early on that Casa de mi Padre, A Spanish film created by the folks who brought us Anchorman and starring Will Ferrel, was intentionally ridiculous. It was as though the movie was constantly reminding me not to take it […]

Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom

Thursday, July 19, 2012 No Comments

Moonrise Kingdom may just be the best movie I’ve seen thus far this year. That may not be saying much, as it’s been six months and there’s been very little to write home about, and it also may not last long as The Dark Knight Rises is releasing tonight, but still, it was a great […]

Feed Me Oil

Rather reminiscent of World of Goo, but somewhat reversed, Feed Me Oil tasks you to help… monsters(?) save their world from industrial disaster by redirecting oil spills into their gaping maws. Using a variety of platforms and other tools, you’ve got to get the oil from the drain into their mouths using the lowest number […]

Bad Teacher was far funnier than I expected it to be. The oddball characters portrayed definitely had comedic allure. And the actors playing these wacky roles were entertaining to watch. Even Cameron Diaz (and her character) had some enjoyable qualities. However, this movie was unreservedly stupid. There were plot holes scattered throughout the story, it […]

Furthermore, the movie itself makes it explicitly clear that there’s little to no reason for anything that occurs in […]

Kung Fu Panda 2

Kung Fu Panda 2

Monday, May 30, 2011 No Comments

Kung Fu Panda 2, whose name doesn’t really denote anything all that original, was surprisingly funny. You’d think that it being a sequel to a kids’ movie it would be dull and completely trite, but it wasn’t. It had some of your standard child movie humor, but, and this is what really got me laughing, […]

The Informant

Wednesday, March 17, 2010 No Comments

The Informant was a quirky and humorous drama about the true story of Mark Whitacre’s years as an informant for the FBI. Matt Damon’s performance was respectable and wacky, and the music helped accentuate the off the wall theme. My favorite moiety was his character’s hilarious inner monologues which were jam packed with random information. […]
