  • Lucy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Jul, 2014

    Let's get the obvious out of the way: yes, the 10% brain usage thing is a fallacy. It's a myth that has been disproven many times and conclusively. That being said, there are also not thunder gods who team up with men in flying metal suits and irradiated rage-monsters who battle alien invaders from another dimension. We also are not actually living in a computer-simulated fantasy where we're actually human batteries for sentient machines who conquered us hundreds of years…

  • Sabotage 2014

    ★★★ Watched 27 Jul, 2014

    Robin Hood: Men in Tights is easily the most dated of Mel Brooks' parodies, but there's still a lot to entertain and amuse here. The film works by having fun with some of the best tropes and amidst all the Arsenio Hall Woof-Chants, tomahawk chops, Fox/fax jokes and such there is some original and funny material. The cast really shines, particularly Cary Elwes as Robin and Roger Rees as the Sheriff of Rottingham. Good old-fashioned goofball laughs; nothing wrong with that.

  • 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…
