I want to see a parody of Mission Impossible with Ralph Wiggum… Mission Unpossible

I don’t hate Tom Cruise. I like him a lot. I think the whole Scientology, jumping up and down on Oprah’s couch, Matt Lauer argument didn’t do him an favors as far as his image goes, but I’m supremely capable of divorcing that persona from what I see on the screen. Plus, I don’t really […]

Reflecting on J. Edgar… it’s quite delicious.

I didn’t know a lot about J. Edgar Hoover apart from the top-line stuff. I knew he was instrumental in forming the FBI as we know it today. He was involved with the gang busting of the 1930s.

My Number is Disappointed

DUDES! If you haven’t had this conversation with your significant other and you don’t want to have this conversation with your girl, then don’t go to see What’s Your Number. It’s bound to come up when you stop for a pumpkin spiced latte at Starbucks after the movie. And, there’s no answer you can give […]

Hipsters Remade ‘The Bucket List’ or Somewhat Less ‘Funny People’

Have you had enough of Seth Rogen? I think I have. He’s a one trick pony and he’s done that trick in a lot of movies lately. Basically, each role is a variation on the same theme. And that theme is “ball jokes.” 50/50 is not without smatterings of that same theme, but Rogen isn’t […]
