Lifetime has just announced an unauthorized behind-the-scenes "Full House" movie, and we wish we were joking, but no. But if it's going to happen--and it is--then why not join in on the fun? Here are our picks for the best possible cast.
“It’s not the nonexistent feelings of a fictional woman that’s drawing ire, it’s that two real men are revealing their real (and not so great) attitudes towards women.”
“‘More of the same’, though I’d still say it was better overall than the previous Avengers movie and trumps it on most levels.”
“There’s something almost fetishistic about the way people would love to see the Dark Knight take the Man of Steel down a peg or two.”
“It has the effect of reminding us while we’re watching a tightly-plotted crime drama that there is in fact a billionaire dressed up as a giant bat who refuses to use guns, fights criminals who have guns, and yet routinely emerges unscathed.”
Mawwaige... is what brings us here today. Well, that and talking about how totally fantastic Evie is, the dearth of happily married movie couples, and why Ursa loves The Mummy Returns, even though it's dumb.
“I wonder if it ever crossed Rodriguez’s mind that the grainy film and ‘missing reel’ scenes of such movies were not put in there intentionally.”
“While a lot of people will see it due to all the awards and accolades it received in the last year, this is primarily a film made by a cinephile for cinephiles.”
In honor of the third anniversary of the Graphic Novel Picture Show, Sybil flagellates herself for the amusement of her fans by reviewing both installments of the short-lived Amazing Spider-Man movie series.
“Granted, it’s far, far superior to the last meta-Bond film they tried (that would be Die Another Day), but it doesn’t have much of an identity of its own.”
Joey tells you what to expect when watching a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, including the likes of A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, Dear John, The Last Song, and the currently playing The Longest Ride.
“Insomnia isn’t perhaps the movie many hoped for following Memento; It’s a pretty low-key, minor effort compared to the complex, large-scale films Nolan would go on to make.”
This time, the Fear Fan tries something completely different, reviewing a sequel out of sequence!
“Birdman may not be everything it’s been hyped to be, and it may not even be remembered as groundbreaking cinema—mostly because it’s not.”
More terrible puns, weird acting choices, the perils of directing, and baby Jedi named Liam! We've got it all!
After a three-year cliffhanger, guest star "Spazzmaster" finally teaches Il Neige to embrace his inner Goofy Goober as they sit down to review the first Spongebob movie. Also, there's time travel.
“There are times when it feels like the characters in The Giver are really just living in a slightly more authoritarian Disneyworld.”
“If you’ve been waiting decades for the return of your favorite franchises, there’s a good chance you’ll be pleased by what’s coming in the next few years. But there’s a much better chance you won’t, because it’s all going to be terrible.”
