  • World War Z

    World War Z

    This movie has no idea what it is about. Probably one of the most disjointed films I've seen.
    Anyone sick of Zombies yet?

  • Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

    Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

    It has always struck me as odd how the public succumbs to the marketing around movies like Borat and Bad Grandpa. The only explanation for why movies like this are widely praised while their lesser brethren go mostly ignores is beyond me. It can only be the run up and marketing. Where the Jackass movies are sublime examinations of Gen X-Gen Y video tape culture, this staged cringefest ends as a sad attempt at one last money grab.

  • Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

    Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

    You remember that one scene in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, the one where you laughed and laughed. Then you left the theater and your friends quoted it to each other over beers that same night? Good. Hold on to that feeling, because this movie doesn't have any of those scenes. None.
    This movie made me like Paul Rudd a whole lot less, and I tend to like Paul Rudd.

  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

    Sometimes you think Hollywood cannot outdo itself with it's own sense of self-entitlement and hubris. Then you see a movie like this and you are reminded you are wrong.
    It could have been worse, it could have been better too. Sean Penn, what in the hell are you doing? I only hope that paycheck went to Haiti or something.
