Maleficent or Meh-leficent: Gurl Carries a Grudge

X-MEN: Richard Nixon Looks Really WEIRD

There’s a moment when Magneto circa 1974 flies an entire baseball stadium (presumably the Baltimore Orioles, I don’t think Washington DC had a team at that time), and smashes it around the White House which is hosting a bunch of reporters and President Richard Nixon.

Neighbors: Hysterical, Bro

I think Neighbors will be remembered as the high point of Seth Rogen’s career – I was scared to watch this, since I was afraid all the funny parts were in the trailer. I was pleasantly surprised to be laughing out loud, especially at some of the throw away one-liners by Sydney-born actress Rose Byrne…

MUPPETS MOST WANTED: Kind of Awesome

I don’t watch childrens’ movies, but Tina Fey with The Muppets sounded too good to resist, so I sheepishly bought a ticket for 1 to see the movie. Will people think I’m creepy? Some 36 year old gay guy alone at Muppets Most Wanted might freak some people out, I thought. Thankfully, there was no…

POMPEII Movie Review: Why Are the Roman Slaves So HUNKY?

I had been looking forward to Pompeii 3-D, since I’ll visit the ruins in Italy someday. Pompeii’s archaeological findings allow people to peek into Roman daily life, with many fascinating relics preserved millenia under a volcanic cascade that covered the city with 4 meters of ash and pumice in 79 AD. I really wanted an earnest…
