Yoda once said "Size matters not." Read on to see how Independence Day: Resurgence proves him right. 
When the original “Independence Day” blasted into theaters in 1996, it was unlike anything ever seen before. Oh, the story was hackneyed and unoriginal but the visual effects… Wow! The scope was epic, the size was massive and it just felt absolutely HUGE. The trouble is, things have changed since those days and we get a movie the size of “Independence Day” almost every week. And one of the only ways to stand out is to go bigger than the...

Ghostbusters 2016 director Paul Feig is a professional filmmaker, but he's acting like a pouty 5-year-old. And this is why it needs to stop.
Paul Feig, O.k., dude. It’s time to shut your mouth. For weeks now, you’ve been using seemingly every opportunity to blast fans of the original “Ghostbusters” from 1984. You claim that the nerds are the biggest jerks in the world, that the only way we could not be pants-wettingly excited for your “Ghostbusters” remake is because we’re a bunch angry, misogynistic man babies that just can’t handle the idea of a movie starring four strong female Gho...

The new Ninja Turtles movie isn't a piece of genius, but at least it's fun. Read all about it:
For some reason, big summer movies have been growing “darker” and “more gritty”. For some reason, filmmakers equate “dark” and “gritty” with “realism”, when it really means “boring” and “joyless”. But if there was a memo going around Hollywood that all summer movies need to reflect the dark, gritty aesthetic, the makers of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” seem to have missed it. THANK THE MAKER! ”Out of the Shadows” isn’t a grea...

I probably would have seen it anyway, but thanks for the review!

As far as I'm concerned, X-Men: Apocalypse is up there with Civil War. Read all about it:
Comic book movies seem to be overrunning the cinema landscape. This year alone has already seen Deadpool crack a bunch of dirty jokes, Batman try to kill Superman and Iron Man and Captain America throw down. “Suicide Squad” and “Doctor Strange” are also coming to wow audiences later this year. There are so many superheroes on movie screens this year, I practically forgot about “X-Men: Apocalypse”. After seeing “Apocalypse”, however, I’m thinking ...

This week's column. Hope it helps someone who might be suffering.
The first thing I wanted to do when I woke up this morning was go back to bed. You’re probably thinking “Join the club.” Everybody has days when getting out of bed is a struggle. Sometimes it’s because you don’t like your job. Sometimes it’s because you didn’t get to sleep until two or three in the morning. I only wish I had reasons like that for clinging to my bed. Instead, I wanted to stay in in bed because...

In this week's column, I throw around some ideas about how to deal with those who would spoil movies and TV shows for others.
There is a scourge that exists among us. A blight that we have tolerated for too long. Too many have suffered the ill effects of this adversary and it is time to kill it before it poisons more innocents. This affliction of which I speak is known as “spoilers”. You know what I’m talking about. Those people who go about ruining the surprises in a new movie or the big plot points of an ongoing TV series. I’ve dealt with...

I kinda wish Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson would quit doing action flicks and just do comedies. Read on to learn why...
It’s a bit of a shame that Dwayne Johnson, the actor formerly known as “The Rock, is so good at kicking butt and looking tough in action movies. Because the guy has a gift for comedy. The latest evidence of this is “Central Intelligence”, a routine buddy movie co-starring Kevin Hart that Johnson almost single-handedly make this movie worth seeing. The story: Calvin Joyner (Hart) is stuck in life, stuck in his job, and his marriage to Maggie (the ...

Guns n' Bullshit
I have to get this off my chest, and because I think people on both sides of this issue are a bunch of buffoons, I don't really care if I piss anyone off. If I do offend you, please feel free to unfriend me. (Also, I use a lot of bad words in this rant. You...

To be honest, I think the biggest problem with this issue is that it's such an emotional issue. People turn off their brains and react according to their feelings. You present some very thoughtful, valid points that I think the other side should consider. Thoughtfulness, patience, and intelligent discourse is what this issue needs.

In the mood to Netflix a classic film that's packed full of laughs? Here's why you should check out His Girl Friday.
The modern romantic comedy has a pretty set formula. Boy meets girl. Boy and girl can’t stand one another. Boy and girl get to know one another and fall in love. Boy does something incredibly stupid and girl jets. Boy realizes he can’t live without girl and chases her down at an airport or something, where they have a smooch-filled reunion. Boy and girl live happily ever after. Something like that. The modern rom-com’s roots run back to the screw...

May The Ghost of Harold Ramis Grant A Slow, Painful Death
Ok Rant time. (Bad words will follow. Read at your own risk.) The more I think about it, the more convinced I am that, unless my editor puts a gun to my head and demands that I review it, I'll be skipping the Ghostbusters remake. Yeah, I know. My refusal to...

I agree. I makes me angry.

This week's column: It's almost summertime! This is why I'm excited!
You’d be correct in assuming that, as a nerd, I’m kind of an indoor cat. Most of the stuff I love doing is best accomplished indoors, often with the assistance of electricity. I mean, it’s a little hard to play growling metal riffs on electric guitar without electricity. Still, when the sun comes out and the weather warms up, I do enjoy getting out and about. I love the smell of the air this time of year. And as the...

How awesome is Captain America: Civil War? Really, really awesome! Read all about it:
You know that feeling you get before a first date, where your stomach feels like it’s trying to eat itself because you’re worried the date won’t live up to your expectations? That’s what I was experiencing headed into “Captain America: Civil War.” But all the Sturm und Drang was needless because “Civil War” is just about the perfect superhero blockbuster, packed with action, laughs and heart. It’s the antidote to all the joyless tent pole movies ...
