Have We Witnessed The Fall Of Spoof Films?

Remember when spoof films where great; when they were of good quality and brought much needed humor and wit to the genres they were satirizing? The spoof films of Mel Brooks are what made spoof films popular. “Airplane!” is not only a prime example of a funny spoof film, but also one of the best comedies of it’s generation. Hollywood Shuffle and “I’m Gonna Get You Sucka!” are films tha...

The Greatest Comedy Cult Classics On Crackle

Here’s a list of the best old comedy gold currently playing for free over on Crackle. Compiled, critiqued, and approved by: me, the only person who’s opinion really matters. Beverley Hills Ninja starring Chris Farley and Chris Rock is one of the most magnificent achievements in the history of film. No, it’s not. But it is really, really ridiculous. Farley at his finest. Oh yes, t...

Hail, Caesar! – The Coens’ Funniest Movie in Years

I like to talk to people I meet in daily life about upcoming movies. It gives me an idea of how much people know about coming attractions, that is, people that don’t spend most of their day surfing movie forums and writing about movies.  So what do people have to say about Hail, Caesar! you ask? Well, even those that have seen the trailer can’t really tell you what it’s about. Ma...

A Look At The Coen Brothers’ Weakest Link: The Ladykillers

Hail, Caesar! comes out this week, the latest film in a long, eclectic, and impressive career by Joel and Ethan Coen. Their last film, Inside Llewyn Davis, came out rather quietly in 2013 and nabbed a couple of Oscar nominations. While it was reminiscent of their more toned down films, a la Fargo, there was still plenty of dry humor to enjoy as well as one of the year’s best performances by one of...

Why Avatar’s Box Office Record Will Probably Never Be Broken

It’s been almost 6 years since James Cameron’s Avatar ended its theater run and firmly established itself as the highest grossing film of all time.  With an enormous total just shy of $2.8 billion, Avatar overcame the decade old record that Titanic had set, and remained a distant milestone as films like The Avengers, The Dark Knight, and Jurassic World failed to even come close.  This ...

The Top 10 Most Anticipated Non-Blockbuster Films of 2016

Are you all caught up on 2015’s big releases?  Well you better be, because 2016 is here and it looks to be one of the biggest years in film history.  The yearly box office record was broken last year with the force of such films as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, Furious 7, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it doesn’t seem like that record will stand for much longer…...

Do We Really Need BET?

Stacey Dash has been taking a lot of heat this week for comments she made about  black history month and BET while speaking on Fox and Friends. Even though most of the black community will disagree with me, I can understand and appreciate her point. The statement that caused the most backlash was “If we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET, and the BET A...

Creed: The Unsung Hero of 2015

Sequel. Reboot. Remake. Prequel. These words have become so commonplace in the current movie market. It’s not like it has gone unnoticed. Every studio knows that it now lives and dies by the franchises it holds and the ability to keep pumping out movies. Marvel went from being a fun idea to one of the highest grossing franchises in film history in less than a decade while DC trips over itsel...

6 Titles to Watch on Netflix During January’s Movie Drought

It’s January, and if you haven’t noticed over the years this month has become synonymous with shameless cash grabs and poorly put together ‘movies’ that often find themselves on various bottom 10 lists.  2016 has decided to uphold the grand tradition, and does so with the grace of a twerking polar bear. This January’s wide-release film slate features such jems as Ride Along 2; the latest failed at...

Anomalisa, Tiny and Intimate

    Over the years I’ve seen a lot of my favorite filmmakers rise and dip in quality, but among the list of names I follow few of them are as steady in quality as Charlie Kaufman and his endlessly meta writing. Kaufman’s films have been some of my favorite since my early teens. From the mentally invasive Being John Malkovich to the self reflective and self aware Adaptation an...
