Hot Fuzz: Shaun of the Dead Remix?

Now that the Cornetto trilogy has come to an end, it is a little saddening to watch the trio of  films. Starting with Shaun of the Dead, moving to Hot Fuzz and ending with The World’s End the latter two can be seen as  remixes of the first yet, despite that lump in the throat,… Read More ›

May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose…

I used to sing this song to my daughter when she was little. Although my version was a little more comically oriented than even the original of this comedy song. I made ripping noises for the “hose” bit, an elephant trumpeting noise for the “caress you with it’s toes” part, and a sneeze always accompanied… Read More ›

The Interview: Taken Out of Terrorist Oblivion…And It Is Funny

The Interview has been taken out of terrorist oblivion and is now streaming for your viewing enjoyment. Sony decided to take the extra step of having the film available on Xbox, Google Play, YouTube and the Sony website.

Tammy Surprisingly Good Despite Contrived Plot (Review/Trailer)

Tammy Surprisingly Good Despite Contrived Plot (Review/Trailer) Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates, is surprisingly good, despite its contrived plot. The film is classed as a comedy and it is funny, but it is also quite touching. For this reason alone perhaps a label of “dramedy” would be a better fit.

The Other Woman Just a Remake of John Tucker Must Die?

The Other Woman Just a Remake of John Tucker Must Die? Admittedly, the trailers and teasers for The Other Woman looked pretty funny until it became apparent that it was a remake of the 2006 teen comedy John Tucker Must Die, sans Jesse Metcalfe.

It’s the Big Four-OH-OH!

Wow! I woke up this morning and after a long debate on whether I really wanted to get up or not, I finally rolled out of bed. The first thing I do in the mornings is pop the old kettle on for my caffeine fix (aka getting my heart started) and the second thing is to… Read More ›

And yes before you point it out, I’m not that young. But having a daughter who has a fairly successful channel on the old “Tube” introduced me to another… Read More ›
