“This film bears all the hallmarks of a perfectly serviceable ‘toon franchise being bled of all its charm by the same man still milking the Transformers for all they’re worth.”

A brief editorial about the recent Ninja Turtles film, and why you should just give it a freaking break, already!
Time to roll out and watch explosions, stereotypes, and awkward bathroom humor galore!
In this follow-up to the super-smash hit, the Fear Fan encounters unusual townsfolk, a burglar alarm that frankly could be worse, a thoroughly confused owl, and the cosmetic magic of Wicca.
A new Transformers movie has come out, and Mr. Mendo very passionately has no idea what to make of it!
“I’m not sure that’s how evolution works, though it’s disheartening to see that Shyamalan thought so much of his silly ‘plants killing humans’ premise of The Happening that he reuses it here.”
Mendo takes on last year’s controversial flop, which recently joined the hallowed ranks of films that have been nominated for both Razzies and Oscars. Also, there’s some stuff about MAGFest at the beginning, and a bunch of absurd silliness scattered throughout that makes very little sense. In retrospect, Mendo may not have been the best person to tackle this film, but tackle it he shall!
Solkir reviews a movie that hates everyone and everything. And… what’s this? A new host for the Graphic Novel Picture Show has suddenly appeared!
Cecil reviews one of his most requested films! Howard the Duck is one of the most notorious flops in cinema history, but in Cecil’s opinion, it doesn’t deserve its reputation, and is incredibly unique and massively entertaining.
“Trust me, this is not a movie where the time simply flies by; you feel every last one of those 219 minutes.”
Cecil takes an in-depth look at the hype surrounding the original Blair Witch Project, which then leads into a review of its much misunderstood sequel. Both films are great in their own way, but unfortunately some studio meddling severely messed up Blair Witch 2. This is another episode in Cecil’s “Exploring” series, which is a serious look at certain films that deserve more recognition.
“Joel refers to Poison Ivy as a ‘beautiful, sexy’ version of the Unabomber. Never really thought of it that way, to be honest. Never gotten that drunk or stoned.”
After Earth is easily the first film Shyamalan has made in more than a decade that genuinely works. And yet, the response has been overwhelmingly negative thus far.
Solkir reviews one of the stupidest superhero movies ever made, Batman & Robin. But instead of screaming for twenty minutes about the terrible puns, he attempts to analyze this film in a more logical, detached way, and discovers… it’s still horrible.
The Cinema Slob checks out what has luckily turned out not to be the final movie in the extraordinary Michael Bay four-part Transformers trilogy. Watch as the Slob learns about the moon landing, ponders the evil-ness of goatees, sees his beloved home town get blown to hell, and reenacts clips too awesome to actually include in the review!
It’s the first video of Sofie’s Twilight Month (which will probably now last into April) as she reviews the final Twilight film, Breaking Dawn: Part 2. It’s the end of a saga… Yeah, a saga, sure.
“Between this, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, it appears the ‘sounds like a joke but is actually a real movie’ movie is officially a real genre.”
The Slob continues his M. Night Before Christmas review spectacular with his look at 2010’s The Last Airbender!
The M. Night Before Christmas continues! There’s something in the air as the Cinema Slob takes a look at Shyamalan’s The Happening, starring Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel as a couple on the run from vengeful, suicide-inducing plants.
The Slob begins a special series of reviews called The M. Night Before Christmas, where he looks at the films of the internet’s favorite punching bag, M. Night Shyamalan! First up, Lady in the Water, starring Paul Giamatti as a crazy super who finds Bryce Dallas Howard in a pool, and discovers she’s a mythical mermaid-thing who’s come to protect the savior of humanity, cleverly played by Shyamalan himself!
