Mania Box Office Report: Big Flood for Noah (Article) - 3/31/2014 10:31:11 AM

 CAPTAIN AMERICA FTW!!  Marvel is about to own.

That is all.  You may continue going about your lives now.

 

 

The Spring of '84: Romancing the Stone (Article) - 3/31/2014 8:53:39 AM

LOVE this movie!  Even as a kid, though, I wished that Danny Devito wasn't in it or was in it less.  His bumbling thief/comic relief part really took me out of the film at points, and that annoyed me.  I would've preferred a little less idiot-humor in the film.  But overall, I loved and still love this film.

Solid review, btw!  You really understood why the film is so classic.

 

 

The Spring of '84: Police Academy (Article) - 3/29/2014 10:30:17 AM

 Rob, you need to take your Xanex before reviewing a movie like this.  "[F]ucking barbarians"?  Really?  That was 30 years ago.  A lot has happened since then.  And these films were never intended to be viewed under a microscope 30 years later... they weren't even intended to be viewed under a microscope in 1984!  At best they were meant to be viewed through beer goggles in 1984, as you relaxed in your parachute pants and drank a Bartles & James wine cooler.

Or as a fourth grader sneaking an R-rated film on HBO when your parents left you with a teenage babysitter with the I.Q. of a cabbage and the attention span of a squirrel on meth.  :D

I loved this film then, and I loved it when I saw it again a few years ago.  Yes, the jokes are dated and not even REMOTELY politically correct.  Yes, the Blue Oyster bar is less funny since my sister came out of the closet and Americans (those not addicted to Fox News, at least) became far more aware of and attentive to the interests of the LGBT community.  But it's still funny for being ridiculous, not for being a riff on gays.

 

 

 

 

The Purge: Anarchy Official Trailer #2 (Article) - 3/29/2014 10:21:01 AM

 This just looks dumb.  The entire premise is ridiculous.

 Can't wait for this.

 

Arrow: Birds of Prey Review (Article) - 3/28/2014 6:09:42 PM

Yeah, this review was spot on, as was the grade.  This episode smacked of the shoddy writing and horrible forethought that we were force-fed on a weekly basis by Smallville.  Please let's not let this be the new standard for this show.

Arrow: Suicide Squad Review (Article) - 3/20/2014 1:53:22 PM

Oh, as for the implant, Deadshot makes a comment that he knew about it, so why didn't Shrapnel?  This was sloppy writing IMHO.

Arrow: Suicide Squad Review (Article) - 3/20/2014 1:52:32 PM

A good episode, but I don't think it was an A.  More like a solid B.  There was a lot of squandered potential, and, for the first time since I started watching Arrow, I felt like the production values and script were more akin to something we'd have seen in "Smallville."  Aside from the "cameo" of Harley Quinn, I really didn't see much in this episode to get excited about.

Likewise, the trailer for next week's "Birds of Prey" looks to disappoint, as we have no female character team-up and what looks to be nothing more than a catfight between Huntress and Sara Lance.  I'm not optimistic.  Hopefully they will get back on track and tighten the show back up for the last few episodes of the season.

 

Jurassic Park Character Returns in Jurassic World (Article) - 3/18/2014 1:50:16 PM

Okay, the amount of thought that the director has put into this makes the film sound very promising.

Arrow: Suicide Squad Clip (Article) - 3/18/2014 1:43:32 PM

Sara's boobs seem to keep getting bigger in that costume.  LOL.

And I have no complaint about that.  Or this season of Arrow!
