    Mother's Day

    ½

    For nearly sixteen years "Riding in Cars With Boys" held the title of "Worst Movie I've Ever Seen." NO MORE! "Mother's Day" came strong for the throne and took that shit down.

    Lazy, inept, nonsensical, un-funny, downright fucking racist, misogynist, and homophobic. And who the fuck picked that hair for Julia Roberts? Good god. Fucking hell.

    FairyTale: A True Story

    ★★★½

    Published in The Charlotte Observer's KidFlix column on October 31, 1997. I was 13 years old.

    "FAIRYTALE" SMART, HEARTWARMING

    From the trailers, "Fairytale - A True Story" looked to be the typical, comedic, silly, live-action movie. But, as I found out Sunday night, this film is very good.

    It was produced by Mel Gibson's movie company, Icon Productions, and is very deep and touching to both the child and adult soul. I am happy to finally see a kids' movie…

    ★½

    At least filmmakers can all take solace that even Kubrick had to deal with boring corporate clients.

    The Big Short

    ★★★★½

    McKay’s dissection of the financial crisis plays out with such energy and life and humor that you’re doubly gutted when you stop to think about the despicable evil on display.
