I recognize that I am not exactly the target audience for Magic Mike XXL. As a straight male, I’m probably the last person the producers want reviewing this movie.

When Ted came out in 2012, I went to see it in theatres twice. A practice I normally reserve for only the best movies I see, I felt as if I needed a second glimpse at Seth MacFarlane’s R-Rated teddy just to catch all the jokes jam-packed in the film. I would easily consider Ted... Read more »

When I grow up I want to be a T-Rex. "Why Eddie?" you might ask. "Why do you all of a sudden want to drop out of college and pursue a career as a dinosaur?" Because I just saw Jurassic World, that’s why. I feel like a complete child again. It has been a long time since I’ve watched... Read more »

It has been about a year since we last saw Melissa McCarthy helm a movie in the disastrously unfunny Tammy. To say that movie was a wreck might be an understatement, and if we’re being completely truthful, it put me off of Melissa McCarthy a little. Before her go as Tammy I would have said... Read more »

We are less than a week away from the 2015 Oscars. We know the host. We know the nominees. We know the presenters. The only thing we don’t know is who will be leaving Sunday night as winners, and who as losers. That’s where I come in. I’ve locked myself in solidarity, spending hours of my life... Read more »
