I recently watched Vacation, the sequel/remake to...National Lampoon’s Vacation. I didn’t like it. I can count on one hand the number of times I laughed out loud. If you’re sitting there for a whopping 90 minutes, you should be laughing at more than four moments in the movie.

And after reviewing Spy and deciding that Comedy movies aren’t movies I think I want to review anymore, I’m just gonna give a short list of Comedy films that I love that make most people say “Oh, you actually like that movie?” if they know what I’m talking about at all. Continue reading

This is it. I’m doing it. Don’t try and stop me.

While I sit here typing with Man of Steel in the background, I have to think through all the guys that didn’t make this list. Surely a character like Superman would have, right? His strength, speed, and abilities are immeasurable and he fits to a point because, hey, he’s in a movie, so he counts right?

WRONG.

Click here to see what puts these movie guys on the list and who made it. Continue reading

SPOILERS, B!TC#!

Breaking Bad is full of huge moments. The start of it all, the first death, the one liners; it’s what makes Breaking Bad so good.

But there are also the times that only seem to matter at the time you’re watching it and then it becomes forgotten in lieu of such scenes as “Say my name.” It’s understandable.

So what we’re talking about are the artistic details that may as well have not been in the show, but were there anyway. And we’re better off for it, as far as the show is concerned. While everything in any good story should be

But it’s moments like the following that make it personally, one of the greatest shows of all time. Don’t expect me to get’em all. There’s just too many. Continue reading

The Top 5 Worst Movies of 2014

It’s almost too easy to be negative so this short list wasn’t going to happen. But I mean…c’mon. There were some bad movies out last year and some of them didn’t get the respect they deserved. Some were so bad, I just didn’t even review’em because it would have wasted your time and mine.

But now it’s time to given them proper credit. Also, I’m putting the trailers up because a few of the following will be things people have no doubt forgotten about. Continue reading

My TOP 5 Movies of 2014

I wasn’t going to put one of these up seeing as how we’re halfway into the first month of 2015, but the Oscars aren’t even on until next month, right? So who cares?

Unlike the past couple years, there were a lot of great films to come out this year. And if they weren’t great, they were entertaining at the very least and that’s more than I can say for the years prior. My Top 5 of 2012 was more of a collection of films that I thought were just better than the others, but didn’t really blow me away.

2014, however, was the balls.

The Top 5 Worst X-Men (Ever)

We’ve all wondered what it would be like to have superpowers. Some guys turn these daydreams into careers and then many of them turn out like I am. But that’s a different story.

One of the greatest reasons to ever have superpowers, to just be born with them, has some positives and some drawbacks, as X-Men has shown us. While some guys are born with claws and a healing factor, some are born as actual freaks. Like Squid-boy. Yes, that’s a real character.

And though the Top Five Greatest X-Men of all time would be quite a list (That you could probably guess off the top of your head), the worst is something to behold in its own right. Losers even among losers! Continue reading

5 Properties that Deserve Movies (But Aren’t Gonna Get It)

This article serves as something of a sequel to my 2012 article 5 Properties that Should Never be Made into Movies. Or maybe its Bizarro brother.

We’re all fans of those things that will never be made into movies. As great as it is to know Hollywood isn’t going to pillage some of our favorite things because they’re too obscure or the budget would be huge, there are some things that would just be cool if they could just nail it.

But alas, for one reason of another, it just doesn’t seem likely for the following entries. Maybe its better this way. At least, that’s what I tell myself. Continue reading

5 Actors Who Just ARE Their Comic-Book Character

Everybody loves it when a character is played just right. When every nuance and whim made by the decision of whoever, be it the actor, writer, or director- when it comes together, it’s just fits.

Then there’s the actors who just are their character. Sure, they’re a superhero or exorcist or whatever, but everything they do is the actor themselves pretending to be a genius scientist, rather than fully becoming the character.

And while guys like Denzel Washington have made a career out of doing this, making a major character from a pre-existing franchise your own is something to be proud of, and it’s fun to watch. Continue reading

5 Reasons George Lucas Needed to Make the Prequels Regardless of How Much They Sucked

With the new Star Wars films in production, it’s only natural to be excited. Or to not care altogether. Whichever.

Though much of the excitement seemed to come from the fact that they’d be taken from George Lucas and put into the hands of capable film makers that love the material even more. We’d all seen what Lucas does with his decades-old properties and it’s been time for a change.

But even with Lucas’ plan for the prequels becoming glorified mannequin positioning, is there anything to salvage from them? Are they three films with nothing for us to take away? Maybe, but here are some ideas on why they needed to be made for one reason or another, whether or not they sucked.

And man, did they suck. Continue reading

600 “Tweets!”, 500 posts, and twenty-five podcasts! With this milestone, we thought we’d celebrate with our top five villains of all time. Personal favorites, of course. Otherwise we’d have to keep naming the same ones always mentioned in any villains list. And we’re not about the that life.

Not now. Not ever. Continue reading
