Guest Review: Office Christmas Party (2016)

I haven’t been a huge fan of recent comedy films. There are a few I’ve enjoyed, but mostly they blur together in a mess of pop culture references, gross-out humor, and lazy sexual innuendo. This is exactly what I expected of Office Christmas Party, and that’s exactly what the movie delivered. However, there were a …

FlixChatter Review: Zootopia (2016)

Ever since Pixar's been making movies, I always thought that their stories are superior compared to Disney in that they appeal to adults as well as children. Well, Disney's clearly been improving year after year. Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6, Frozen, they all have pretty mature, thought-provoking themes with teachable moments for people of all ages. This …

Double Indie Film Reviews: Disconnect + Unfinished Song

This past week, I had the chance to watch a couple of indie films through MSPIFF and press screening. It would've been three films but the blizzard last Thursday kept me from going to the MUD screening. Yes it's such a bummer but really, in the grand scheme of things, especially compared to what's going …

Upcoming Project Spotlight: ‘Paul’

Originally this was one of my most anticipated flicks of 2010, but it turns out this road trip comedy is delayed to 2011. Via Twitter, the prolific Twitterer Simon Pegg wrote this last February: Due to an extensive post production schedule you won’t be seeing our little desert caper any time soon. Rest assured it …

Conspicuous Trailer of the Week: The Switch

I first heard about this flick when I blogged about Jason Bateman last September when it was still called The Baster. Yeah, no doubt they went with a 'safer' title though it sounds so generic now (there are eight other movies with that exact title on IMDb!). .... The plot: An unmarried 40-year-old woman (Kassie) …

It’s raining Bateman – Jason B is EVERYWHERE!

It's been quite a lovely & warm September but today's rainy weather with high only in the mid 50s definitely signals the end of Summer. Yup, tank-top weather is done, over, finito. Well at least there's the beautiful foliage to look forward to, and then the brrrrrrr months will be here for the next five …

DVD Pick: The TV Set

With the workplace comedy Extract opening today, I somehow feel like bringing up this movie I saw quite a while ago. It's got one of the most fitting and clever tagline: "A place where dreams are canceled." The TV Set, as it's aptly named, is a satire about the journey of a TV pilot as …
