When John Waters first brought this movie to the silver screen, it was groundbreaking at the time. When it came back to the silver screen in 2007, one had to wonder... why? The first movie was quite good and more than enough. The acting from Ricki Lake and Divine, were more than enough to say the film was unique. So what's the need for re-doing it? Let's see if we can answer that.
It has been six months since the last time this editor has reviewed a title, please forgive me if I’m a bit rusty.
Movie licensed games. Need I say more?
I don’t pride myself in being overly critical of gaming companies. I also understand the purpose of a movie license and how far that actually goes when it’s translated to a game. But, with that said, it truly is unacceptable to see a perfectly good opportunity go to waste.That’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in a nutshell.
I had so much hope for this film. I really did. It had been long overdue to be made into a live-action film. The 1986 movie (which was animated) really did the series justice and even brought about new tales in the different renditions of the overall storyline. When there was a gigantic truck at Comicon a few years back with the movie release date, I was giddy. When Steven Spielberg’s name came u...[Read More]
What happens when a child is left in a jungle? Well only the most obvious thing! Animals raise him, accept him and then try to get rid of him.
Why in the world did people not like this film? After watching it nearly six times, I have come to realize that the one true answer to the above question is quite simply… it’s not childish as the others.
The fifth movie from the fifth book of Harry Potter may be the best one yet. Let me explain further.
I never knew that such a show could survive so long. On and off from the beginning of the show itself, Family seemed to get more and more offensive as the seasons grew on. In volume five of Family Guy, you get even more crude humor and, for the most part, it’s very welcomed.
I just couldn't really understand why Disney would want to take a perfectly good cartoon and ruin it. And ruin it in High-Def no doubt. But you know what happened after viewing this film on Blu-ray? I realized that "Underdog" is actually quite good. Not Academy Award good, but good on a family level.
So many years, so much material, so many characters... so how did it do? D'OH! The Simpsons Movie! When Springfield needs an overhaul due to major pollution, the government steps in to help. The mayor builds a giant concrete wall around the main water supply, which is being polluted, to help keep the pollutants out. When Homer saves a pig from a terrible fate at the hands of Krusty, he soon finds ...[Read More]
Yes, there are people like this in the P.E. world. No kidding. Is this a good movie? That's a rhetorical question John Farley had a rough life. He was young and fat, as most people in high school are, and was constantly harassed. He wasn't harassed by students though, he was harassed by Mr. Woodcock, the P.E. teacher. Having been mentally scarred by his high school trauma, he finds himself growing...[Read More]
