The Disaster Artist Movie Review

Now using one of the most unintentionally funny films of all time as fodder for a film about a film has yielded comic gold. James Franco nails the role of The Room’s creator Tommy Wiseau (minus the middle age creepiness) and has never been more fearless or funny. It’s also a family affair and features his brother Dave as a co-lead actor.   //   The Room was beyond bad and feels as if it was alien in origin while The Disaster Artist feels Hollywood through and through. From its ...

The Night Before Movie Review

We have a tradition around these parts in putting a concentrated effort into scaring off our guests with warped movie playlists, eggnog with only booze and no nog and a black and yellow Christmas tree (a left over cinema display from Seinfeld’s grand folly, Bee Movie). Every year we add to the Kringle cruel collection but it’s been years since a movie this f&$%ed up has joined the mad menagerie. The Night Before has just about everything to guaranty holiday good cheer, drugs, ...

Your Highness Movie Review

Your Highness is the kind of ride where they throw so many jokes at you that a few are bound to strike the bullseye and when they do, laughter can be found. It also has one of the highest percentages of groan worthy moments of any film in recent memory. It’s like the writers got really herbalized, wrote a scrip that threw every stupid joke they could think of in that altered state, passed out and then later forgot to go back and edit their altered musings. Setting the film in a fantasy ...
