Black Knight (2001)
on Wednesday, December 5, 2012
December is Time Travel Month for Phil Buni, because screw Christmas! (Also, he did his Christmas specials back in July.) First up is Black Knight, a comedy where Martin Lawrence, one of the least funny actors of our time, works at a Medieval Times-style theme park, but then ends up traveling back in time to the actual medieval times! Did you notice how many times we said "time" in this description? It's a theme month!
The Butterfly Effect (2004)
Phil's special Time Travel Month continues with The Butterfly Effect! Ashton Kutcher has the hereditary power to travel back in time, which he uses to try to fix things, but instead he just screws up the present more and more. Unfortunately, this movie doesn't understand how time travel works, or even the fundamental concept behind its own title.Detention (2011)
This meta-mashup movie stars Josh Hutcherson and Dane Cook in a high school comedy/drama that morphs into a slasher movie, which them morphs into a sci-fi story involving body switching, time travel, and the end of the world. Sure, given the time of year, there are other movies more appropriate for Phil's Time Travel Month, but no way and no how is he reviewing any movie version of A Christmas Carol.Never Say Never Again (1983): the lost recap (part 6 of 6)
“All that’s left now is to quickly get to the obligatory big battle sequence where the movie throws as many guys with guns into the frame as possible, and they all stand around shooting at each other long enough for us to finally end this damn thing.”Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)
“Without the hook of the internet-famous ad, it’s doubtful that many people would have heard or cared about this sporadically funny and rather unassuming film.”Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
“Director Doug Liman channels Harold Ramis, albeit taking things in a very different direction (less Andie MacDowell, more Alien MindControl).”Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Time Travel Month continues with Phil's very first top ten list! He reveals the top ten darkest moments of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, a 2011 anime series where a schoolgirl named Madoka becomes a Magical Girl and battles dangerous monsters known as "witches".
