Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

SPECIAL GUEST REVIEWER: I am Groot. Much like our guest reviewer, I was delighted with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It balances action, humor, character dynamics and stunning effects both visual and practical with multiple plot strands and explorations of family, regret and reconciliation. It is all the more impressive considering what it has…

Movie Trailer: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

Well, in case you were wondering, Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is still a big buffoon who doesn’t understand nuance. Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) still has the hots for Gamora (Zoe Saldana) who may finally be enjoying the attention. Rocket (Bradley Cooper) still has a hard-on for blowing things up, but mostly on display in…

Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Marvel Studios can do no wrong. Their properties — Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and Hulk — have generated billions in worldwide merchandising and ticket sales. Interestingly, during this superhero renaissance, they’ve only had one team-up (2012’s “The Avengers,” which itself made $1.5 billion) though.

Movie Trailer #2: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Comedy meets science-fiction action would be a good description to Marvel’s latest, Guardians of the Galaxy for which a second trailer is now available for.

Instead of inundating the screen with explosion after explosion, the five so-called “Guardians” — Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer — are introduced by their rap sheets…

Movie Review: Movie 43 (2013)

Movie 43 is basically the first new comedy of 2013 (“A Haunted House” does not count). It’s not, however, a comedy in the normal sense. 12 directors — Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, Peter Farrelly, Patrik Forsberg, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner, and Jonathan van Tulleken —…

Movie Trailer: Movie 43 (2013)

A more politically correct trailer for Movie 43, the mother of all ensemble comedies (12 directors, 50+ A/B level actors, 8 writers), has been made available on the web by Relativity Media. Of course, when I say more politically correct, I just mean it’s just not nearly as offensive as the red-band trailer was (we…
