Movie 43

Movie 43

With a handful of funny segments mixed in throughout its lineup of gross-out vignettes, “Movie 43″ isn’t half as bad as I had thought it would be.

Of course, considering that I had expected it to be a sign of the apocalypse, that’s not actually saying much.

Worst Supporting Actor Winner

The MAJOR Awards roll on! This post presents the Worst Supporting Actor winner for 2012!

We had five actors all worthy of being lambasted for their atrociousness in films from last year, but only one can be the winner.

Playing for Keeps

Playing for Keeps

A washed up ex-soccer pro tries to reconnect with his young son by coaching his soccer team. Along the way, he also tries to break into a new line of work (sports casting) and win back his ex-wife.

Standing in his way are an army of poorly written, badly acted, hornier than any person ever soccer moms.

What’s a poor family rom-com hero to do?

The Words

“The Words” tells the story of a successful old writer telling the story of a struggling young writer who steals an old story from an old writer who eventually catches on and confronts him by telling his story.

It waters down the emotional weight, and creates unfortunate periods of time that the audience has to sit through, hoping to get back to what the movie should really be all about.

The 2012 Fall Movie Preview – Part I

With this weekend’s release of “The Expendables 2″ and “ParaNorman”, the summer movie season is pretty much over. One weekend remains in August, and those movies wont have much room to run before school is back in session.

Nope, the season of the big blockbuster is behind us. It’s time to look ahead to the fall.

Not to despair, though, the fall brings sharp movies for the thinking movie fan. Movies which may have more selective box office appeal, but which may be some of the best movies all year.

So click through to take a look at the first part of this year’s fall preview. Today we’ll look at the last week of August, plus September, and then we’ll come back tomorrow with October and the first week of November. Together they’ll take us right up to the start of the Holiday movie season, and the November 9th release of Skyfall!
