Life Itself: It's Just Good
I think everyone can agree that Life Itself is a damn fine film. Life Itself is the 2014 Roger Ebert documentary that, so aptly named, covers his entire life and miraculously gets you in and out in two hours. That's a lot of information to cover in such a s...

Let's Talk About Get On Up
I had always intended to catch Get On Up, the 2014 James Brown docudrama, in its first weeks of release. But as I worked through the opening weekend and heard little worth repeating on the film, I pretty much just let it go. Was this the wrong thing to do? ...

Wetlands Is Pretty Gross
I know I'm late to the vomit orgy on this one, but damn... If you're a queasy personality, you should probably stop reading now, and forget this movie even exists. Wetlands is the story of Helen, an 18-year-old girl who's been suffering from hemorrhoids her...

So I Watched The Interview...
Man, this was a weird movie. If you don't know by now (where have you been??), The Interview is the comedy about the attempted assassination of current North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. It embodies a very common American sentiment of late, and one that no on...

What We Do In The Shadows Works!!
If you haven't had a chance to catch the new mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows, you've been missing out. The film by Jemaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords fame) and Taika Waititi recalls memories of old Christopher Guest comedies... the kind you ...
