Neighbors

FAMILY VS. FRAT. When a fraternity moves into the house next door, a married couple (Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne) try to get on their good side… but they’re soon bitter enemies. A huge box-office success that doesn’t challenge any formulas but takes good advantage of its suburban setting, with a conflict between two types of … Continue reading Neighbors

Sausage Party

A HERO WILL RISE.  A hot dog sausage and his bun girlfriend realize that their existence at the Shopwell’s supermarket is based on a lie – those groceries that humans bring out of the store are not saved, but eaten. A 3D animated comedy targeted at adult audiences, a very raunchy, foul-mouthed spoof of Disney/Pixar … Continue reading Sausage Party

Hollywood Stars in Super Bowl Ads 2016

This year’s crop of Super Bowl ads was truly star-studded. We had the expected amount of new trailers (where most movies seemed to focus on the end of the world as we know it), but let’s take a look at what brands Hollywood stars supported. The following line-up of ads is courtesy of The Hollywood … Continue reading Hollywood Stars in Super Bowl Ads 2016

The Night Before

THREE WISE MEN. ONE WILD CHRISTMAS.  Three best friends (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie) are going out on Christmas Eve in New York City as they always do… but a fourteen-year long tradition is about to end. The director and stars of 50/50 (2011) are reunited for a comedy that looks like they usually … Continue reading The Night Before

The Interview

FROM THE WESTERN CAPITALIST PIGS WHO BROUGHT YOU NEIGHBORS AND THIS IS THE END.

Just Release The Interview on VOD

On November 24, a group of grammatically challenged hackers calling themselves Guardians of Peace released a first batch of e-mails between people working at or who are in other ways associated with Sony Pictures. It’s been followed by several new batches and messages from the group that is apparently targeting Sony for making The Interview, a … Continue reading Just Release The Interview on VOD

The Guilt Trip

GET READY FOR ONE MOTHER OF A ROAD TRIP. Inventor Andrew Brewster (Seth Rogen) goes on a cross-country tour of sales pitches and brings his overbearing mother (Barbra Streisand) along; there’s obviously an ulterior motive… Streisand’s first leading-lady vehicle in decades thankfully never turns raunchy like so many other contemporary comedies, but preserves its star’s … Continue reading The Guilt Trip

22 Jump Street

THEY’RE NOT 21 ANYMORE. Schmidt and Jenko (Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum) are back undercover, this time at a college where they’re looking for a dealer who’s been supplying students with a deadly new drug. The sequel to 21 Jump Street (2012) has such a loose attitude that it’s a wonder the two stars even remember … Continue reading 22 Jump Street

This Is the End

NOTHING RUINS A PARTY LIKE THE END OF THE WORLD. Jay Baruchel comes to visit Seth Rogen in Beverly Hills for the weekend; they end up at a party at James Franco’s house, which is interrupted by the end of the Earth. Longtime writing partners Rogen and Evan Goldberg made their directing debut with this … Continue reading This Is the End

The Green Hornet

PROTECT THE LAW BY BREAKING IT. When a newspaper tycoon (Tom Wilkinson) dies, his slacker son (Seth Rogen) rises to the occasion… and accidentally becomes a masked crimefighter. Michel Gondry’s foray into comedic superhero movies was heavily panned by critics; it doesn’t live up to its promise as a visually playful romp (not even in … Continue reading The Green Hornet

Hollywood Stars in Super Bowl Ads

Anybody who knows me knows that I’m not a sports fan. I love to exercise and I’ve recently started skiing… but sports is something I want to experience. To me, watching a game on TV is not entertainment. I couldn’t care less who won Super Bowl this year, and actually I’d have to Google it … Continue reading Hollywood Stars in Super Bowl Ads
