Kung Fu Panda 3 is a pretty big step back from the first two films as it loses its way at almost every turn.Read more "Kung Fu Panda 3"
I remember when I was younger, cracking up to the Jack Black and Kyle Gass’ music video for “Tribute” off of the first Tenacious D album. I still laugh to this day when they get to “Rock!” And I might be the only one here, but I did laugh during their movie The Pick of […]Read more "Review of Tenacious D’s ‘Rize of the Fenix’"
Kung Fu Panda 2 is a heartfelt and action packed sequel that moves us deeper into the series’ mythology but seems to double down on stupid non-character based humor that pulls you out of the picture every time. The film picks up shortly after the first with Po and The Furious Five protecting the lands […]Read more "Review: Kung Fu Panda 2"
Year One takes a trip back to prehistoric times for its inspiration, but unfortunately no one remembered to pack the comedy. Going off of survival of the fittest standards, Zed and Oh would have been bred out of the species a long time ago. In a nutshell, they are lazy outcasts who are unskilled at […]Read more "Rental Review – Year One"
This is the first of a new column I will be writing for the remainder of the year culminating with a best of the decade list when it is all said and done. It’s almost hard to believe the first decade of this new millennium is almost over, but that just means we get to […]Read more "The Decade’s Best – King Kong (2005)"
Harold Ramis is back behind the camera for his latest with his new Apatow friends and the result is a intermittently humorous film that is rather mediocre to not funny for over half the film. Oh and Zed are a pair of tribesmen that are quite the pair of failures in their tribe. Zed is […]Read more "Review: Year One"
Ben Stiller returns to the director’s chair to direct this satirical farce on and gets pretty great results out of it. The film opens with a number of faux trailers and commercials for the stars in the film and they are pretty funny, but I won’t spoil those here; but they aren’t quite as good […]Read more "Review:Tropic Thunder"
The latest addition to the DreamWorks Animation catalog is one of their best, coming not far behind Shrek as one of their best efforts yet. The film is about the training and ascension of a wannabe Kung Fu Master, Po, an overweight Panda that worships the Furious Five and the Masters of the Jade Temple […]Read more "Review: Kung Fu Panda"
Michel Gondry’s latest is an odd film that displays his creative flair but gets lost in itself by not packing that heartwarming punch it goes for while ditching what it does best, “sweeding” What is “sweeding” you ask? Well that is what this film is all about; “sweeding” is the low budget bare bones reproduction […]Read more "Review: Be Kind Rewind"
Noah Baumbach’s follow up to 2005’s Squid and the Whale continues with that films dysfunctional family theme and it works just as splendidly for Margot as it did with fore mentioned film. Baumbach’s writing is just stellar with his off-beat sense of humor and a knack at finding hilarity in the awkwardness and uncomfortable settings […]Read more "Review: Margot at the Wedding"
