  • Fifty Shades of Black

    Fifty Shades of Black 2015

    Watched 07 Feb, 2016

    Quick Hits: It's amazing that Fifty Shades of Black is actually less funny than the film it's trying to parody. And Fifty Shades of Grey's comedy is unintentional, whereas Marlon Wayans and company are actually trying to be funny here. Almost no joke lands and it's poorly paced; even at ninety-two minutes, it feels way too long. I know these films are cheap cash grabs for Wayans and his distributors, but enough is enough already.

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Jan, 2016

    The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Apr, 2012 1

    Being that I am an entertainment reporter, it is very rare that I can go into a film knowing almost nothing about it. Before 2012, the last time I was able to do so was Cloverfield; with Cabin in the Woods however I was determined to do so. I had heard much about the struggle to get the film released, of course--filmed by Drew Goddard based on a script by Joss Whedon and himself, delayed to do 3D post-conversion and…
