Movie Review: Pixels (2015)

Critics (and others I suppose) have been gunning for this film, Pixels, long before it hit the big screen and not without good reason. First of all, anything with the name “Adam Sandler” attached to it pretty much means movie disaster. Recent examples include “Just Go With It,” “Bedtime Stories,” “Jack and Jill” and the…

Movie Review: What We Do in the Shadows (2014)

Vampires ain’t cool no more. They used to be so and, as happens to everything trendy, they kind of got old. Then came the whole teenage-sexy-cheesy “Twilight” saga (with every twitched creature it spawned, monstrosities such as “Vampire Academy”) and sucked the genre dry.

Movie Review: Minions (2015)

I don’t mind telling you, when I hear the words, “spin-off,” regarding film or television, I don’t get the best of feelings. The history of the term (which I will not go into here) conjures up as many negative thoughts as does the phrase, “third movie in a film franchise series.” Still, being the profession…

Movie Review: Frank (2014)

Frank is a man of many walls. He’s been building them for as long as he can remember, but it was only during his early teens that he actually got his first one made by his dad for a costume party that never was. Frank wears a big papier-mâché head over his mask — a…
