Horrible Bosses 2 reunites the trio from the first movie for more hilarious criminal mishaps and out of their element antics. This time around, Kurt (Jason Sudekis), Nick (Jason Bateman) and Dale (Charlie Day) are starting their own business with a product they hope will get them up and running. When a wealthy investor (Christoph Waltz) places a large order […]
Christopher Nolan has a knack for taking a genre and creating something unique and fresh out of it. Batman Begins offered an intense and gritty comic book origin story. The Dark Knight was a crime thriller set in the Batman universe. Inception was a heist movie in a sci-fi dream world. And Memento was a noir revenge movie that put the […]
In preparation for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ release this Friday, I decided to review every movie in the Apes franchise thus far, having never seen a Planet of the Apes movie before. You can find an index of my Apes reviews here and check out The Obsessive Viewer Podcast here. Now, here’s my review of the 4th movie in the […]
FIND ALL OF MY X-MEN REVIEWS HERE This was my first time watching last year’s The Wolverine. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was directed by James Mangold. He directed one of my favorite westerns, 2007’s remake of 3:10 to Yuma. With that in mind and knowing this was a Wolverine movie without the word “Origins” in the […]
FIND ALL OF MY X-MEN REVIEWS HERE After X2‘s release in 2003 I was really looking forward to this movie. It was one of my most anticipated movies ever until Bryan Singer decided to make Superman Returns instead. The announcement that Brett Ratner would take over directing X3 only crushed my spirits more. I had little faith in Ratner and […]

There’s something surprisingly endearing about watching the beautiful Brit Marling take a bite out of a half-eaten apple she just pulled out of the trash. I found myself pondering these strange occurrences throughout The East. I’m guessing most of the audience felt the same way, and I’m also guessing the filmmakers are happy about that. I’m not sure I’ve ever really seen a movie like The East; which I mean in the most complimentary of ways.

In honor of a big review I’m posting on Friday, I decided to share the trailer for Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Alien.

Here’s the 3rd and final part of my Kevin Smith Retrospective. I’ll just cut to the chase. Here are links to Part I and Part II in case you missed them. Enjoy and follow the blog on Facebook and Twitter, if you haven’t already.
Yesterday I posted the first of three posts revisiting Kevin Smith’s movies. Today I’m here with part two, wherein I discuss Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Jersey Girl. This section was interesting because I had only seen two of the movies once before and I’ve never been a huge fan of Jay and Silent Bob as characters. […]
