Lady Bird

Film Title

Lady Bird

Synopsis

Lady Bird is dissatisfied with her life and decides to do something about it.

Director

Greta Gerwig

Cast

Saoirse Ronan
Odeya Rush
Laurie Metcalf
Timothee Chalamet
Lucas Hedges
Beanie Feldstein
Tracy Letts


The movie Lady Bird was not really on my radar screen as I have been impatiently waiting for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri to make its appearance in Northern Colorado. Maybe people are still watching Will Ferrell’s latest stinker and the Bad Mom’s Christmas debacle and there is no room for a quality film. I […]

Office Christmas Party

Film Title

Office Christmas Party

Synopsis

Saving the company the old-fashioned way.

Director

Josh Gordon, Will Speck

Cast

Jason Bateman
T.J. Miller
Jennifer Aniston
Courtney B. Vance
Olivia Munn
Kate McKinnon
Jillian Bell
Rob Cordry

Jingle our bells. The best scene in a movie about an office Christmas party doesn’t actually occur at the party. It happens in an airport lounge and is further evidence that Jennifer Aniston was horribly miscast for most of her career. I’m not talking about starring in comedies, I’m talking about being cast as the […]

Film Title

Escape From Tomorrow (2013)

Synopsis

Disney receives a surreal middle finger!

Director

Randy Moore

Cast

Roy Abramsohn
Elena Schuber
Katelynn Rodriguez
Jack Dalton
Danielle Safady
Annet Mahendru

Escape From Tomorrow (2013) You hear someone has somehow filmed an entire movie at Walt Disney World without Disney’s knowledge. You can imagine it will look like found footage garbage with key scenes shot on sets indoors. This movie was shot in shimmering black and white by a real cinematographer, and 99% of the movie […]

Coco (2017)

Film Title

Coco (2017)

Synopsis

A California Gringo looks at The Night of the Living Dead

Director

Lee Unkrich, Adrian Molina

Cast

Anthony Gonzalez
Gael Garcia Bernal
Benjamin Bratt
Alanna Ubach
Renee Victor
Jaime Camil
Gabriel Iglesias

Fair Value of Coco (2017): $7.00. Purely upon its own merits, and viewed in a void, I’d say this is a $20.00 film. But I’m cutting my score by half for the context of appropriation without accreditation, and another deduction for the subtext of the film. This is a film that I liked the more […]

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas

Film Title

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas

Synopsis

A very stupid and needless 3D Christmas movie

Director

Todd Strauss-Schulson

Cast

Kal Penn
John Cho
Danny Trejo
Kenneth Park
A Wafflebot

A VERY HAROLD & KUMAR 3D CHRISTMAS When this movie isn’t being gross with the bodily fluid humor, or disturbing near-rape scene, (just does NOT belong in this kind of movie) it can be funny even when it is being oh, so very wrong. Oh, and a toddler gets stoned, dusted with cocaine and takes […]

Loving Vincent

Film Title

Loving Vincent

Synopsis

A beautiful story on oil painted animation

Director

Dorota Kobiela, Hugh Welchman

Cast

Douglass Booth
Josh Burdett
Holly Earl
Robin Hodges
John Sessions
Aidan Turner

Loving Vincent 1 hr 34 minutes, PG-13 for mutilation and suicide. Fair Value of Loving Vincent: $5.00. Its a good art house film, and works as an adequate primer for somebody who knows nothing of post-impressionism. A good movie for your suburban relatives and in-laws. Patron Saint of the Starving Artists: There are a number […]

Christmas Evil (1980)

Traumatized at Christmas as a young boy, this Toy Factory worker slowly loses his mind and becomes a very creepy Christmas stalker and killer.

Director

Lewis Jackson

Cast

Brandon Maggart
Jeffery DeMunn
Dianne Hull
Gus Salud
Ellen McElduff

Christmas Evil (1980) was originally titled “You Better Watch Out”. [You can watch it on YouTube] If you are ever in the mood for a really depressingly wonderful Christmas Movie, look no further than Christmas Evil. This movie was originally billed as a routine Christmas Horror/Slasher flick. Somewhere along the way, it altered course into […]

Jason Mamoa
Jeremy Irons
Ciaran Hinds
J.K. Simmons
Amy Adams
Connie Nielsen
Amber Heard
Diane Lane

Baby steps (or, I see you, Joss Whedon) You know how when President Trump gives a speech that doesn’t contain racism, attacks, lies, or ads for his properties, certain people gush over how good or presidential he suddenly is? What’s that – too political? Okay; a different analogy. You know how when your dog doesn’t […]
