Shaun of the Dead Movie Review
What would a modern-day zombie apocalypse look like from the average Joe’s perspective? Turns out, it’s a bit less heroic and a bit more practical than other movies would have you think. This new Giggleween classic is a relentless blend of humor and gore, and is worth seeing at least twice.
Hocus Pocus Movie Review
The year is 1693 The Sanderson sisters, having nothing better to do other than whatever people did back then, have decided to become witches. When they’re caught and murdered, they vow in the form of a curse. it takes 300 years, but they’re reincarnated… in the 90s. Maybe they were better off dead.
Thank You For Smoking Movie Review
Satire is break dancing of humor: everyone thinks they can do it, but only a few do it well. Thankfully, for all the “satire” movie equivalents of drunk white dudes trying to do the robot, we have movies like Thank You for Smoking, which serve those poser films with its funky fresh moves.
Movie Review - Clue
How do you know when a particular board game is popular? Not when Parker Brothers buys it. Not when it sells millions of copies. Not when the game has been around for decades. No, it’s when the director of The Blues Brothers and Animal House co-writes a flop movie about it.
Murder By Death Movie Review
Neil Simon's send-up of murder mystery movies and novels is corny and bitingly funny at the same time. An all-star cast including Peter Falk, Peter Sellers, and Maggie Smith makes for a fun time for anyone wanting a little escape from the heaviness of other genres.
Spaceballs Movie Review
The biggest-grossing box office hit Mel Brooks has had to date is, surprisingly enough, not his best. However, it co-starred Joan Rivers in a rather hilarious performance, and deserves to be mentioned regardless. Take a look at what happens when the master of satire goes Sci-Fi.
The Birdcage Movie Review
A classic of the mid-90s, The Birdcage is the tale of an engagement bringing about ridiculous circumstances when two families with completely opposed beliefs and values meet each other for the first time. A hilarious addition to any movie night, just use discretion when involving the kids.
Mrs. Doubtfire Movie Review
I’ve decided to switch gears and make this remembrance of Robin Williams go a bit longer. Today I review a classic of his, and certainly one of my favorite movies growing up as a kid. What happens when a man-child voice actor gets a divorce? Let’s just say it gets old before it gets better.
Death To Smoochy Movie Review
To honor the passing of Robin Williams, I take a look back at the role I most fondly remember him in. This film flopped at the box office, its dark plot clashing a bit too garishly with its characters, but it remains a prime example of why Robin was one of the all-time greats.
Sharknado Movie Review (Yep.)
Picture this: the biggest hurricane in existence is coming to Los Angeles (for some reason that defies meteorological logic). On its own, it will cause untold damage. But in its trip across the Pacific, it has sucked up an untold amount of deadly sharks (???) on the way. I wish I was kidding.
