Gone Girl

Leave it to David Fincher to leave you feeling squicky after a movie.

I think this is going to be a running theme of “Movies You Shouldn’t See with Your Family That I Saw with My Family.” A month or so ago I saw The November Man with my dad and nephew, and now we’ve followed that up by seeing David Fincher’s adaptation of Gone Girl, which my dad read as part of a book club.

You know, fun for the…

Mulaney Episode 1: Pilot

Mulaney Episode 1: Pilot

I know Seinfeld. I watched Seinfeld. You, sir, are no Seinfeld.

You ever see something and can’t tell if it’s supposed to be satire or if they’re being serious? I kind of got that with Selfie, though that could go either way. I’m not sure if that’s the case here. I’ve seen John Mulaney’s stand-up, and while I thought it was good, I never got the impression that it would make for a Seinfeld-esque…

The Book of Life

The Book of Life

Quick question: why don’t we have more movies and shows and games and what have you based on Day of the Dead?

I think the last one was Grim Fandango, and that’s going on 15 years now.

Remember how I was saying in my Boxtrollsreview how we’ve had a pretty stale run of animated movies? Well, right after LAIKA’s latest movie, we get probably one of the most spectacular animated movies of all time…

Selfie Episode 1: Pilot

Selfie Episode 1: Pilot

Well, I’ve been putting this off long enough. Time to review Karen Gillan’s next major television series.

Can I just review old episodes of Doctor Who instead? Please?

I want to say right off the bat, whatever I think of the actual episode in terms of quality, whoever decided on using selfie as the title of a major network television series should be smacked upside the head. It might have meant…

The Flash (2014) Episode 1: Pilot

The Flash (2014) Episode 1: Pilot

The Flash pilot came out already? Wow, that was fast.

Get it? Cause he’s fast? Do ya get it?

While I’m not exactly a fan of what DC and Warner Bros are doing with their comic book movies, DC has been doing just fine for itself on TV. Arrow is on its third season, Gotham just premiered, and now we have the fastest man alive (in the DC universe at least), The Flash. I’m not caught up on Arrow, but…

The Boxtrolls

It’s been a long while since we had a really great kids movie in theaters, hasn’t it?

At least since February.

As far as children’s films go, the last few years have had a boom in quality family entertainment. Disney’s been pumping out hits with movies like Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen, DreamWorks brought us Rise of the Guardians and the How to Train Your Dragon series, not to mention smaller…

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Episode 1: Shadows

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Episode 1: Shadows

Ladies and gentlemen, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is back.

I will have to get back to you on whether it is or is not better than ever.

While the first season had a bit of a rocky start, once they didn’t have to tiptoe around MCU spoilers the show really took off the ground. The big question was could the show keep up the momentum they built or would Marvel have to clip their wings again to prevent…

Gotham Episode 1: Pilot

Gotham Episode 1: Pilot

Well, the first batch of those new TV shows I was talking about have started airing, and now that I can take the time sit down and watch them, it’s time to play a little catch up. Up first is FOX’s Gotham, and while I have my issues with the behind-the-scenes network decisions leading into the show, I’ll be sure to look at this series with an open mind.

My first thought on this episode is YOU…

A Walk Among the Tombstones

A Walk Among the Tombstones

Be forewarned, don’t go into this movie expecting the same Liam Neeson we’ve been seeing in Taken and it’s series of copycats.

What about that Liam Neesons, tho???

Much like Pierce Brosnan’s latest movie The November Man, my nephew was given a bit of a bait and switch. Instead of seeing “Liam Neesons,” as Key & Peelehas him refer to the Academy Award winning actor, he basically got to witness…
