Vacation: Deftly Executed and Genuinely Funny [Review]

Vacation: Deftly Executed and Genuinely Funny [Review]

It’s been 20 years or so since I saw the original Vacation and I have to admit, I wasn’t a fan.  I just didn’t find Chevy Chase funny (still don’t).  But movies have changed a lot since then and so have I.  Seeing this Vacation makes me want to go back and see it again in case I missed something.   I went into this just for the Chris Hemsworth scene (you know the one I mean) but I ended up liking the whole thing.

Lamb of God – VII: Sturm und Drang: How a Prison Stint Helped to Inspire The Band’s Strongest Album in Years [Review]

Lamb of God are back with a vengeance on their seventh studio album under that moniker. It’s technically eight if you’re feeling awesome and include their true debut as Burn The Priest (a wicked record that still holds up by the way). Fuelled lyrically by singer Randy Blythe’s 2012 arrest and stay in a lovely Czech Republic prison while he faced manslaughter charges: VII: Sturm und Drang is appropriately the most in depth and emotionally charged offering that Lamb of God has ever produced.

Pixels: A Tortuously Contrived but Colourful Homage to Video Game Nostalgia [Review]

Pixels: A Tortuously Contrived but Colourful Homage to Video Game Nostalgia [Review]

I don’t get Adam Sandler.  I didn’t like Billy Madison or Happy Gilmore and I haven’t seen anything else of his.  I just don’t think he’s funny.  So I fully acknowledge that I might be the wrong person to be reviewing (and indeed watching) this film.  If you’re an Adam Sandler fan, you should skip my review and just go see the movie; I’m sure you’ll like it.
