The Drop†is a tight and intriguing movie starring the late, great James Gandolfini and Tom Hardy. It is not surprising that it is one†of the best movies of 2014. †The movie is based on a short story about an animal rescue, but it’s essence was really about the sparsely-revealed forces that drive Bob, the quiet […]

Waigaren Cinema- Nu Sheng Su She (Inside the Girls)

It’s not easy attending medical school when your shower hall is apparently haunted by the ghost of a woman who committed suicide in your dorm room. This is a mystery movie being marketed as a horror movie. It’s all solidly PG-13, and it’s lacking in any real scariness, but it makes up for it with a very twisty plot and a well-portrayed final villain

Week 2 NFL Picks – Watching Football is Probably Bad Edition

3-0, wow. You know, I promised myself Iíd actually learn something between Week 1 and now so Iíd sound like less of a fucking idiot while writing these picks, but clearly I donít need facts to pick NFL games correctly. I go with my gut, like George W Bush. I am like that fucking octopus that predicts the World Cup winner every year.

Sita Sings the Blues- 2008

Film Review- Sita Sings the Blues † 82 minutes Fair Value of Sita Sings the Blues: $10.00. Sita Sings the Blues is a distinctive animation debut, showcasing a variety of styles and aesthetics. I’d say it’s an excellent stoner animation for college bars looking for a weird visual on the background TVs. It’s a good […]

Piranha Sharks. It has come to this. Normally I would not even be exposed to this movie, but I got a nice e-mail from Benjamin Kanes deploring the latest pile of shark shit from Asylum, in the form of one Sharknado 2. He threw it down and said that they had done better with their […]

2014 NFL Season Win Totals – Better Late Than Never Edition

Like Rob Ryan on a hot N’awlins day, this line is a little bit stinky. Just 9.5, with a lot of juice? Ehhh. Ehhhhh. I feel like such a square for being on the over here. But I’m having a ton of trouble convincing myself this is not the right side.

I know that a lot has been written about the making of Boyhood but I think that few really comprehend the almost miraculous scope of this movie’s achievements. For one thing, not only did Linklater produce a masterpiece with one brilliant child star performance, he did it with TWO, and over the amazing period of […]
