Doucheaholics Review (2016 Indie Comedy Series)

As so eloquently defined by the Urban Dictionary, a “doucheaholic” is a person suffering from extreme douche-ness. The person who cuts you off in traffic and then proceeds to scream at you. The person who talks badly about you to your friends. The person who brags to no end about countless sexual conquests. All clear-cut signs of douchery. Now take all these varying douches and put … Continue reading Doucheaholics Review (2016 Indie Comedy Series)

Young Frankenstein Review

During the month of October, I had the incredible experience of viewing Mel Brook’s 1974 comedy classic Young Frankenstein on the big screen. Sitting in an almost completely empty theater, I watched in admiration as one of my favorite actors played out one of his most famous roles, just as people did in 1974. The story, a comedic spoof based on various film adaptations of … Continue reading Young Frankenstein Review

Game Night Review

A film like Game Night lives for the absurd and unexpected. Pushing the audience to the limits of plausibility, yet somehow avoiding jumping the shark in the process. It does its best to show the audience a good time, all while throwing in laugh out loud plot twists and a variety of comedy styles (including deadpan, dark, situational, and even occasional gross-out comedy). Game Night … Continue reading Game Night Review

Peter Rabbit Review

When I heard Sony was making a live-action/CGI animated film of Peter Rabbit (based on the stories by Beatrix Potter), my mind immediately went to Sony Animation’s The Smurfs. A film so dull and manipulative that it practically invented the term “corporate pandering”, I was sure Peter Rabbit would suffer the same fate. Luckily, in some ways I was wrong. Meaning that Peter Rabbit had some redeeming qualities, … Continue reading Peter Rabbit Review

Daddy’s Home 2: A Ho Ho Horrible Holiday ‘Comedy’

Daddys Home 2 follows the occasionally used formula of turning a comedy sequel into a holiday escapade. An almost always disastrous decision (just look at A Bad Moms Christmas), it will surprise no one to hear that Daddy’s Home 2 is a comedic flop. With the first Daddy’s Home being a mediocre and forgettable comedy, this installment had no intentions whatsoever in surpassing it. Will Ferrell … Continue reading Daddy’s Home 2: A Ho Ho Horrible Holiday ‘Comedy’

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Review

It was obvious from the get-go that The LEGO Ninjago Movie would be the least inspired installment of the continuing LEGO Movie franchise. Based loosely off a children’s cartoon series (which in turn was based off a preexisting toyline), The LEGO Ninjago Movie tells the story of Lloyd Garmadon (Dave Franco), who lives in a metropolitan city constantly threatened by the evil Lord Garmadon (Justin Theroux). Lloyd happens to … Continue reading The LEGO Ninjago Movie Review

The House (2017) Review

If you’ve ever wondered how a film could perfectly squander the acting talents of two A-list movie stars, then look no further than The House. The House stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler as Scott and Kate, two parents trying to send their daughter Alex (Ryan Simpkins) to college. With very little money to do so, Scott and Kate reluctantly decide to open up an illegal … Continue reading The House (2017) Review
