Frankenstein’s Monster and Dracula are as common a pop culture one-two punch as Superman and Batman. If there’s a movie with one character, you can bet that the other will follow suit shortly afterwards. Not surprisingly, there have been stories…
“Contains just a bit more cannibalism than one would expect from a Disney-produced Lone Ranger movie.”
“Christian Bale acts more robotic than the cyborgs he’s fighting.”
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!

Part 1 of the epic conclusion of the Harry Potter series begins! But is this movie just a glorified setup for the next one?
This entry in the Harry Potter series was critically acclaimed and liked by just about everyone. Alas, the Suspect has a slightly different opinion.
It's time for a New Year's Eve special! Mr. Mendo closes out the year with a double review of Les Misérables and Django Unchained! And as a cap-off, you'll get an answer to the question we know is on your mind!
“The whole production practically makes itself. All they needed was for the director not to fail in every way imaginable. But director Tom Hooper somehow managed to do just that.”
The Cinema Slob explores the film's subtle social commentary, its heart-wrenching plea for acceptance of cross-species love, and of course, its genius twist ending.
Joey watches Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, starring the voice of Johnny Depp (who else?) as a shy groom who practices his wedding vows near a grave and ends up married to a murdered bride, voiced by Helena Bonham Carter (who else?). This is one of Joey's favorite Burton films, and he explains why it's basically the grown-up version of Burton's other famous stop motion film, The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Sofie goes down the rabbit hole for Alice in Wonderland, another visually impressive yet incoherent mess from Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice. Watch and wonder how a movie this mediocre made a billion damn dollars.
