Ted (2012) is stuffed with tired jokes
Posted Sep 30, 2014 by Ivan K

“The film itself is an odd mixture of witty humor, forced pop culture references, and tiresome gags. In short, it’s everything you’d expect from a movie written and directed by Seth MacFarlane.”

The ongoing trend of big budget comic book movies has had its ups and downs, and one major down for many fans has been the 2011 reboot of the '30s-era pulp crimefighter the Green Hornet, starring comedic actor Seth Rogen as a much goofier Green Hornet than we've ever seen before.

Stuff You Like #63
Posted Sep 25, 2014 by Sursum Ursa

Ursa takes you once more into the magic dance of adolescent metaphors, dear friends. Ever just want to go back and talk about stuff again? Stuff, perhaps, that You Like? Well, this is a second look at Labyrinth, and Ursa's feeling metaphorical.

Divergent (2014) doesn’t diverge from the YA dystopian formula
Posted Sep 8, 2014 by Chelsey McQuitty

“See what happens when humans decide to build whole societies around single isolated virtues and really boring color-coordinated wardrobes.”

The Boxtrolls (2014)
Posted Sep 23, 2014 by Sofie Liv

“It’s a delightful kind of weird that indulges itself and immerses us completely in a different universe, making the movie feel timeless and something that ought to be recognized as an instant classic.”

Posted Sep 11, 2014 by Ivan K

“If you’re going to remake Clash of the Titans, for Zeus’ sake, embrace the silliness!”

The Movie Skewer #12
Posted Nov 16, 2012 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie

Stephenie Meyer's novel gets split into two movies to extract an additional billion dollars from Twi-hards who line up for these things no matter how tedious or repulsive they get. And this one is certainly repulsive, as Bella gets pregnant with a half-vampire baby who treats her womb like a bouncy castle, Edward performs a Cesarean with his teeth, and Jacob embarks on an 18 year quest to groom his future wife.

Knowing (2009): Nicolas Cage knowing he’s in a bad movie
Posted Aug 26, 2014 by Chelsey McQuitty
