Movie Review: Game Night (2018)

Does anyone want to play a game? Shake your head if it’s Max (Jason Bateman, “Office Christmas Party”) and Annie (Rachel McAdams, “Doctor Strange”) asking, unless losing is your thing. In a slickly assembled montage, the couple is revealed to be “all day, every day” champions of trivia, scrabble and charades. But they’re only game-night…

Movie Review: Office Christmas Party (2016)

Ah, what would this time of the season be without another motion picture featuring sex, drugs, rock and roll (and loud, annoying rap, to boot), fights, prostitutes, female pimps, gun threats, corporate layoffs, drunk driving (among other idiotic things committed while intoxicated), psychological disorders, sacrilegious sequences, rampant vulgarity, sexual harassment, child abuse, serious physical and…

Movie Review: Zootopia (2016)

There is something satisfying about five thirty-something men going into an afternoon screening of an animated “children’s” film that features talking animals, and noting other audience members of a similar age.

Movie Review: The Gift (2015)

This is the guy who reminds you…

Or attempting to do it a second time when the first shot misses and escaping blame was by pure luck. Horrible Bosses 2…

Movie Trailer: Horrible Bosses 2 (2014)

Seeing Kevin Spacey back in action is a good thing. Back in action in Warner Bros. Pictures’ Horrible Bosses 2 is up to debate, however, as this is a sequel no one was looking to see happen. In it, instead of trying to eliminate their horrible bosses (which Spacey was one of) with a cockamamie…

Movie Review: Disconnect (2012)

In this world of commercialistic glitz and glamor, it’s hard to come across a truly riveting story these days. But in Disconnect, viewers get just that, and it happens (surprisingly) to revolve around a social criticism of the crazily convoluted, always plugged-in world we live in. The film begins with a glimpse into the life…
