Game Night is Fresh & Original – You’ll be Reminded of People You Know (Review)

Game Night is Fresh & Original – You’ll be Reminded of People You Know (Review)

Finally a movie that isn’t a sequel, prequel, reboot or based on a comic book series.  It’s original, it’s fresh.  Thank god.  You know, there haven’t been many straight-up comedies lately, which is a shame.   It’s always been other types of movies that have funny in them – horror movies with funny moments or kids movies that were also funny or Marvel movies.   And Game Night is very very  funny, I even started laughing in the trailer.  So I was a little worried that they just used all the best jokes in the trailer but that’s not the case.  It’s funny throughout.

Ozark: Interesting & Intense But Doesn’t Achieve Greatness (Review)

Ozark: Interesting & Intense But Doesn’t Achieve Greatness (Review)

Netflix has established the reputation of releasing very impressive TV shows and movies. When I first saw that Ozark was a “Breaking Bad” type show, I was immediately all in. Breaking Bad is the greatest TV show of all time. I recently finished Ozark and I’m here to say that it is nowhere near the level of Breaking Bad, but it is still a cool show with some really intense moments and solid performances from Jason Bateman and Laura Linney. I’m interested to see where they go with it from here. Read more

Office Christmas Party: Exactly as Advertised & Also Hilarious [Review]

Office Christmas Party: Exactly as Advertised & Also Hilarious [Review]

Not that many Christmas movies out.  Office Christmas Party is has been the only example I’ve seen so far (though I did miss Almost Christmas last week) and it’s less about the holidays and more about a Big Giant Party.   Just like Halloween, there’s been a dearth of seasonal movies this year but I probably shouldn’t complain too loudly.  Last year this time I’d had my fill of holiday glurge and then some.

Zootopia: Genius, Rich & Inviting with Amazing Character Design [Review]

Zootopia: Genius, Rich & Inviting with Amazing Character Design [Review]

Normally I don’t go in for G-rated films.  I like a little sex and bloodshed in my entertainment, not to mention cussing.  At least there was nudity, which was hilarious.  If you think that’s a spoiler, it’s not.  There were naked animals in the trailer.  But my goodness, how I enjoyed this film.  The world of Zootopia was rich and inviting and the story was well told.
