The original Vacation is a classic. The new Vacation is definitely not a classic, but it’s actually not bad either. Believe me; I’m as surprised as you are. Staring Ed Helms as grown up Rusty Griswold and Christina Applegate as his wife, Debbie, the new Vacation aims... Read more »

I’ve used the word ridiculous to describe the last two movies I reviewed. For the sake of continuity, I’m making the word ridiculous the theme of this article as well. In Adam Sandler’s latest starring role, he play a nerd named Brenner, a former video-game prodigy turned washed up loser who... Read more »

Last week I saw the Minions movie, and it was absolutely ridiculous. This week, I saw Ant-Man, and while this movie is ridiculous too, it is ridiculous in all the right ways. Based off the Marvel comic of the same name, Ant-Man plays out as the story of ex-con Scott Lang’s... Read more »

If you were wondering, “Did they really make an entire movie out of the sidekicks from Despicable Me?” The answer is an unbelievable and unfortunate yes.   Minions is a movie all about those annoying little yellow creatures that, for some reason, people seem to be obsessed with.... Read more »

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. Nonetheless I did my duty as any good movie critic would and sat through two hours of men without shirts dancing, rubbing and... Read more »

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 »
