Streaming Saturday comes a little late this week. This week’s recommendation is 1998’s “teenvasion of the body snatchers” (I can’t believe I just said that, either) movie The Faculty. Directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Kevin Williamson, the movie is a slightly dated, very silly, hour and a half that, despite its best efforts, doesn’t leave you feeling like you’ve […]
It’s been a while since I cracked open my Bond set. I really wanted to get into it but other things started occupying my time. Hopefully I’ll be more diligent with my ongoing review. For now, however, enjoy Part two of my 12-part series on the Bond franchise and Blu-Ray collection.
One day last month I had an impromptu double feature with Mean Girls and Easy A. It’s not a stretch to figure out why these two go well together. They’re both comedies about female protagonists dissecting and disrupting the hierarchy of high school life. They’re a natural fit. Which one is better, though? Read on to find out.
I love it when a show or movie makes me feel like a complete moron. This week’s episode of Bates Motel made me feel like an idiot. Let’s get to it. Read on for my thoughts. But beware because there are SPOILERS AHEAD….
I just finished watching the amazing documentary Side by Side on Netflix and deem it very worthy of a Streaming Saturday recommendation. Keanu Reeves interviews many heavy hitters of the industry to get their take on the celluloid vs. digital filmmaking debate. It’s a really fascinating look at the evolving artform of filmmaking. There are a lot of things I […]
One of my earliest movie-going experiences was seeing Jurassic Park in the theater in 1993. I was just shy of 7 years old when my parents told us we were taking a surprise trip somewhere secret. It was a month after a friend’s parents took me to see Super Mario Bros., so it didn’t take long to figure out where […]
At the end of last week’s episode I was excited at the prospect of more Nestor Carbonell. Unfortunately, Sheriff Romero was busy investigating a burglary this week. His absence didn’t make for a bad episode, though. Things continue getting crazy in White Pine Bay. Read on for my thoughts… (SPOILERS AHEAD)
Director: Colin Trevorrow Writer: Derek Connolly Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, Jake Johnson, Karan Soni
Norman had a pretty good week. Norma had a couple sleepless nights with the promise of more to come. Emma was suspiciously out sick with the flu. And Dylan spent a couple days off work being a good wingman. Read on for my thoughts on this week’s episode. (SPOILERS AHEAD…)
I’m a huge Danny Boyle fan. I saw 28 Days Later… multiple times in the theater. I watched 127 Hours five times in 2011 alone. Between buying gifts for friends and an upgrade to blu-ray, I’ve bought more copies of Sunshine than probably anybody. And I cheered in glee like a maniac when he hopped like Tigger accepting the Best Directing Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire. So you can imagine my delight […]
Today the entertainment world mourns the loss of its most prolific and beloved critic. Roger Ebert died yesterday after a lengthy battle with cancer. Knowing I couldn’t do the man proper justice, I asked my friend (and fellow blogger at Geek is the New Pop) Mike White to share a few words on Ebert’s passing. Below is what he had […]
