Movie Review: Blockers (2018)

While the teen sex comedy Blockers brings on the typical roller-coaster of raunchiness, it somehow registers devilishly with an offbeat, uproarious take on the trials and tribulations of stress-induced parenting and safeguarding the so-called virtues of impressionable daughters from predatory prom dates. With a deft hand, director Kay Cannon (screenwriter for the “Pitch Perfect” trilogy…

Movie Review: The Disaster Artist (2017)

The Coen Brothers. Paul Thomas Anderson. Quentin Tarantino. When you think of great American directors who defined the first decade of the new millennium, these are a few of the usual suspects. When we reflect upon the current decade, it would be unwise to neglect the rise of an unusual directorial talent: James Franco. No…

Movie Review: The House (2017)

The craps-shooting, comedy caper, The House, is a bad gamble for former “Saturday Night Live” alums Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler. The betting windows tell a tepid tale of strained, transparent chuckles in this limp-minded, suburban satire that rolls the so-called humor dice to no avail. The mixture of collegiate financial desperation, spoof-inspired small-time mobsters,…

Movie Review: Don’t Breathe (2016)

Don’t Breathe opens with a floating aerial shot over a picturesque neighborhood street. Birds chirp happily as the sun warms the trees and houses with a golden glow.

Movie Review: The Night Before (2015)

I suppose it’s a generational thing that a lot of younger critics seem to adore the newest film by Jonathan Levine (“50/50,” “Warm Bodies”), The Night Before. I mean when I think of harmless Christmas comedies, my mind conjures up movies like “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” or “Home Alone,” among others. So when did foul…

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 Trailer: Neighbors (2014)

If Seth Rogen can land Katherine Heigl in “Knocked Up,” then it is at least a possibility he can land Rose Byrne, right? Either way, he’s married to her in Universal Pictures’ upcoming comedy Neighbors and together they butt heads with the party-til-you-puke frat house that has moved in next door. Crude stupidity, as it…
