The boys and I took a bite of this feel-good food porn and found it charmingly light but exceedingly bland.
Our viewers are extremely angry about our review of the TMNT reboot, it seems.
“Guardians of the Galaxy” is the cheekiest, wackiest sci-fi blockbuster you’ll see all summer. Great cast, inspired visuals and a blast of a soundtrack of ’70s pop tunes which will be stuck in your head long afterward. Trust me.
Matt, Alonso and I were all shocked at how good “Get on Up” is and how it breathes life into the musical biopic, a genre that’s typically riddled with cliches. (See: “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.” No really, you should see it.) Chadwick Boseman is completely captivating as James Brown and the film as a whole is massively entertaining.
Any sex tape you’d make at home with the partner of your choice would be hotter than this.
Ben and I were stunned that the sequel to “The Purge” is so much better than the original. Writer-director James DeMonaco expands on his clever idea both geographically and emotionally. It’s the best movie in a bad week for movies.
Believe the hype, guys — this movie is bad-ass. Bong Joon-ho’s film has serious things to say about class disparity but it’s also thrilling in its surprises and dazzling in its production design. If it’s not playing near you, please check it out through video on demand.
Machine gun-toting apes barreling on horseback through the fiery streets of San Francisco? Yes, please. Matt Reeves’ movie is pretty bad-ass — thrilling, terrifying and vividly rendered — but it also features some intimate moments of real emotional poignancy. We all dug it, although Alonso was less wowed than Ben and I were.
It’s the fourth ‘Transformers” movie. You know what you’re getting into by now — only worse. Our good friend, LA Weekly critic Amy Nicholson, joins me and Alonso for a fun and lively discussion.
