I was a little apprehensive about tackling this one... having George Clooney and Julia Roberts in the same flick.  There are exceptions, but the good majority of their films are vehicles for box office draws.  Even their serious work can come off as a polished Hollywood tale wrapped with that film gift bow (read: guaranteed money maker).&...

So how exactly do you plan an orgy in a small town?  That is the question that Neophyte Productions wants to help us answer.  The somewhat smart comedy has been garnering some critical acclaim at regional film festivals and opens in limited release on May 13th.Cassie Cranston (Jewel Staite; Firefly) was the town slut who left Beaver&...

Everyone is talking about it… #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan.  Where do you fall on the spectrum, or do you not even care?  If you don't, you should, as Captain America: Civil War seems to be one of 2016's blockbusters. Garnering praise aplenty, movie goers will flock to the theaters to see it at least once in the next month and they won... Read More

Quick question… if The Huntsman: Winter's War was never made, would we really be missing anything?  The short answer is probably not.  While there were some good things about the film, there were far more negatives than positives, starting with the question "why?"The prequel/sequel gives us the back-story of who the hunts...

If you look up the word criminal in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, you will find an adjective meaning "involving illegal activity: morally wrong".  From this, one would ascertain a movie with the word as its title would involve either of the above mentioned descriptions, which it does.  However, it's difficult to figure out whi...

For me, Melissa McCarthy is hit or miss.  Sometimes I like her stuff; other times I don't.  Mike and Molly was funny enough. Bridesmaids was hysterical and her character was great.  Spy was another example of a fun and entertaining McCarthy movie.  However, The Heat and Tammy were both awful and torturous to sit through.  S...

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been one of those highly anticipated super hero movies.  Beginning last year, my friends and family started taking sides and debating which hero would, or should, win.  Merchandise made its way into stores and online even before the holidays, and the first "sneak peak" debuted a year a...

War is a polarizing subject.  Is it necessary? Do the ends justify the means?  For hundreds of years, countries have sent their young adults off to kill or be killed with mixed results.  With today's technological advances, the risks of casualties may seem smaller but can actually be just the opposite.  Gavin Hood's (End...

Opa!  Nia Vardalos (Connie and Carla) does it again.  A sequel 14 years in the making, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 has all the laughs and emotional baggage we loved the first time around.  All of our favorite characters return to remind us of the craziness surrounding the Portokalos family, while they navigate through new challenges&h...

There are some movies that are going to make money regardless of if they are good or bad.  Allegiant is one of those movies.  With a built in audience, and two films preceding it, it is sure to be a winner at the box office.  Whether it is good or not is a matter of perspective.In the continuing saga of Tris&...
