The Critical Movie Critics

I'm an old, miserable fart set in his ways. Some of the things that bring a smile to my face are (in no particular order): Teenage back acne, the rain on my face, long walks on the beach and redneck women named Francis. Oh yeah, I like to watch and criticize movies.


Movie Review: A Long Way Down (2014)

Suicide is no laughing matter. Neither is A Long Way Down, a movie that uses it as a jumping off point to bring together four people whose individual plights are supposed to draw sympathy and whose differences when combined are supposed to create laughable conflict. Of course, it’s not a comedy in the strictest sense,…

Movie Review: Neighbors (2014)

I’m not quite sure how it works but I get a distinct feeling fraternities don’t just up and buy a house in the middle of quiet neighborhoods and setup shop. Especially one known for hosting extravagant, panty-dropping parties and on some sort of super, double secret probation. That, you see, would be a recipe for…

Movie Review: Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

It’s not easy being mean, err, I mean green. Actually, I can’t imagine either of them being particularly easy, even though both Constantine and Kermit the Frog carry both of them off as they were.

Movie Review: Need for Speed (2014)

“The Fast and the Furious” is a great movie. When compared to the latest fast car drama, Need for Speed, that is.

That last one is a bit of stretch, however; there really are…

Movie Review: Veronica Mars (2014)

If you were to travel back to the nondescript year of 2004 in your time machine (hopefully of the hot tub variety) and tune into one of those crappy upstart TV stations (the CW in this case) you’d find a little show about a girl detective who, while solving campy mysteries, also has to deal…

Movie Review: Nurse 3D (2013)

The plot of Nurse 3D is clearly spelled out in the beginning of the movie when a sluttily dressed woman named Abigail Russell seduces a married man at a bar, slices open his femoral artery and pushes him over a roof ledge while saucily confessing to the audience she does things like this to cleanse…
