Happy Marijuana Legalization Day, Canada!

Home Entertainment Review: Neighbors (2014)

Neighbors (Nick Stoller, 2014) – If nothing else, you’ve gotta give Seth Rogen credit for acknowledging his age. Sure, in his latest movie he plays a stoner with a heart of gold who feuds with frat kids, but at least this time he’s playing a thirty-something stoner with a heart of gold feuding with frat kids.

Neighbors Review

Nicholas Stoller’s Neighbors has all of the trappings of a crowd pleasing, bad taste classic in the making, but at least there’s no question that the filmmakers are laughing directly at their subjects rather than with them.

Parkland Review

As a depiction of the events on the day of American President John F.

Parkland Gala Director: Peter Landesman As a depiction of the events on the day of American President John F. Kennedy’s assassination on November 22nd 1963 – as well as the three days in the wake of the killing – Parkland doesn’t cover any historical or narrative ground that hasn’t been touched on before, nor does […]

At Any Price Review

At Any Price is a gloomy parable that speaks to the woes of life in small town America. Director and co-writer Ramin Bahrani’s delivers a picturesque rendering of golden-glimmering wheat fields and comforts of country living. Yet, there is a general air of melancholy that floats through this film in which stories of lust, teenage angst and midlife crisis become implausibly intermittent.

The Paperboy Review

Fleetingly campy and sleazy at the opening and closing, The Paperboy is ultimately too boring during the middle hour of the film to leave any sort of lasting impression outside of the film's most bizarre moments.
