Ricki and the Flash

Ricki and the Flash

Meryl Streep leads an artist’s life as the titular character in Ricki and the Flash. Perpetually stuck in the ’80s, I’m going to agree with a blogger who wrote that Meryl Streep appears to be dressing in “Melissa Etheridge Drag” (I think someone said that on Dlisted). I totally agree, because it looks like Meryl Streep…

Amy Winehouse

“Amy” – A Beautiful Soul and an Amazing Talent

Watching the documentary Amy reminded me how much time has passed since Amy Winehouse left us. Remember Amy Winehouse? For me she symbolized this golden moment in celebrity gossip culture where there was always something funny happening in the tabloids. In fact, the first time I heard her song “Rehab” was when it was posted on Perez…

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…

Depp in Transcendence

Not everyone likes this idea, and some cyber terrorists shoot him with radioactive bullets. He doesn’t quite die, but his wife decides the…

Movie Review: Oculus or Ocul-ASS?

I like a good scare pic, and I think Oculus had high aspirations. You could tell the director wanted it to be all artistical and shit. Kaylie and her brother Tim were children when a spooooky mirror got the small boy to shoot his father. The spooooky mirror possesses people’s minds and gets them to…

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…
