Home Alone Movie Review
A movie that introduced John Hughes to the 1990s and its children, directed by a guy who would make his name known to a generation of children in the 2000s by directing the Harry Potter films, who also wrote The Goonies. But does the film encourage violence against hobos? Maybe.
The Muppet Christmas Carol Movie Review
How do you take a classic Christmas tale that has some really screwed up imagery which we keep telling to our children and make it overly kid-friendly? You add the greatest comedy troupe in the world. Not the Monty Python. Not Broken Lizard. You add in Jim Henson’s Muppets. And they slay it.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas Movie Review
This was a perfectly serviceable live-action tribute to the works of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss that started an idea.

Trading Places Movie Review
Where John Hughes was the master of the PG-13 comedy in the 80s, John Landis owned the R-rated comedy category back then. This classic starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd amidst the high-stakes world of commodities training is a hilarious and surprisingly well-researched dive into the other side.
