The Canyons

by Sarah April 20, 2014

Every once in a while, a movie comes along that is so moving, so powerful, that it leaves you feeling inspired. This is not that movie. Directed by Paul Schrader (who wrote Raging Bull – seriously!), The Canyons is a movie that is so awful that I feel dumber for having watched it. Maybe you […]

Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier

by Devon Pack April 15, 2014

            Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier 136 Minutes, PG-13 Fair Value of Captain America 2: $18.00. A well paced spy thriller, equal parts James Bond and Jason Bourne, that juggles a relatively large roster of superheroes and super-villains well. The first sequel to really handle multiple super-villains well. An excellent […]

Noah: A Rant

by Goat April 14, 2014

This movie has already been reviewed, didn’t you read the magnificent review by Devon? Yes, I know, but this is something I feel compelled to do. Well, what is the problem? Seriously, I looked forward to this movie with glee, but that anticipation was quickly snuffed out in the first 5 minutes of the film. […]

The Lost Weekend

by Goat April 8, 2014

  The Wet House provides a judgment-free atmosphere for drunks, but there is no such thing in the world of this ground-breaking movie that was made in 1945.  Don Birnam is a part time writer and a full time, 24-carat alcoholic. For someone like Don Birnam, the judgment is EVERYWHERE, his supporting brother, to a […]

The Wet House

by Goat April 4, 2014

The Wet House -A Documentary by Penny Woolcock (2002) This is an incredibly hard to watch hour-long documentary on housing formerly homeless Drunks. I don’t use the word “Drunks” flippantly or judgmentally, that’s exactly what these people are. There is not the slightest hint of rehab here and no pretense at all about these down […]

Muppets Most Wanted

by Devon Pack March 23, 2014

Disney is going to be making Muppet movies for the remainder of American, or possibly human civilization. And as the cinematic march of the fuzzy marionettes continues, Muppets Most Wanted will continue to float, lukewarm, in the middle levels of the franchise’s history.

In Bruges

by Goat March 21, 2014

Once in a rare chance you find a relatively obscure movie that is so unexpectedly wonderful that you feel like you have stolen something.  We have watched films about unrepentant child-murderers, so what about those who are repentant, and are thrust into a horrible situation by only doing an honest day’s work?  We can relate […]
