January is upon us, which as we all know is the time of year reserved for that curious mix of Oscar bait finally going wide, obvious duds that got pushed back from summertime/holiday releases, and the rare diamond in the rough taking advantage of a total lack of competition. In other words, expect Rogue One to dominate the box office for the foreseeable future.
“This film basically states that criminals’ rights are often at the expense of the rights of those who have been victimized. This allows viewers such as yours truly to look at Dirty Harry as something of a modern-day Man With No Name.”
“Will make anyone who loves to watch demi-gods jumping onto the backs of large computer-generated beasts giddy.”
Join the Suspect as he takes a look at the divisive Star Wars Episode I. Prequel defenders unite! Features cameos by Cubix, Joey Tedesco, and Il Neige.
“It’s like someone saw Ted and decided what it was really missing was a ton of fart and shit jokes.”
“If you’re going to remake Clash of the Titans, for Zeus’ sake, embrace the silliness!”
“Could Anchorman 2 be the end of Will Ferrell’s over-hyped career? In a nutshell: yes. Or, at least, it should be.”
“While this film is no classic of the genre, it’s undoubtedly a lot deeper and more introspective than a movie about Liam Neeson fighting wolves has any right to be.”
Liam Neeson Will Not Let Vladimir Putin's Aggression Stand, Man
'Non-Stop:' We Reflect on Liam Neeson and the Way We Cannot Hate Him Ever

'Tis the season for love, actually, with Hugh Grant as Prime Minister, more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus Christ, and innumerable subplots. Or at least, the three subplots Ursa thinks are most interesting.
This time in Movie Recommendations, Sofie looks at another movie she really enjoys. Darkman is a relatively older movie, but still a goodie, and one that could be called Sam Raimi's missing link between Evil Dead and Spider-Man.
On this episode of Movie Madhouse, Josh examines Taken 2, the follow-up to that one movie you remember from a few years ago with that one scene. Back for a pointless, ever-so-slightly xenophobic sequel, Liam Neeson is... the Taken guy.
In 2010, a great action movie adaptation of a hit 1980s action TV show was panned by critics for a crime it didn't commit. It promptly went to DVD, where it remained mostly forgotten. Today, still disliked by a majority of major film "critics", it survives as a movie loved by true fans of action-adventure and comedy. If you never saw it, if you had only heard bad things, and if you didn't know any better than to blindly trust the critics, maybe you should watch: The Cinema Slob's review of The A-Team!
It's Ursa's Five Fave Fings (she's a trained alliterationist--don't try this at home) about Batman Begins! And Batman, according to this movie, begins with Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes' lack of undergarments, themes of idealism and fear, and Christian Bale's abs.
“Last summer saw the release of the big budget adaptation of the ‘80s cheese ball television classic The A-Team. Given the rather underwhelming reception it received at the box office, I think we can safely say there won’t be a sequel, so this is as good a time as any to examine what the filmmakers got right and what they got wrong.”
