The Green Hornet Revisited

I reviewed 2011’s The Green Hornet and while I thought it wasn’t terrible, it wasn’t faithful enough to the television series it was based on (which ran from 1966-1967 and was a spinoff of Batman, which was cancelled a year later). The problem by my reckoning was more due to the writing by Seth Rogen […]

The Hornet’s Sting Returns!

I have been a fan of comics since I learned to read–and in fact they contributed significantly to that happening–though eventually my love for the medium branched off into other adjacent areas fairly quickly. One of my favorite offshoots was old-time radio.  I was an avid listener of the CBS Radio Mystery Theater in the […]

Sausage Party – Red Band Trailer

When a movie comes from Seth Rogen you typically don’t expect it to be terribly  sophisticated–though considering that he, along with producing partner Evan Goldberg, have developed a series based on Vertigo’s Preacher (which is getting rave reviews) it’s not any longer a terribly accurate interpretation–and if that movie were called ‘Sausage Party’ you probably […]

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Official Trailer #1

Do you think when film makers cast Zac Efron in roles where he appears in various states of undress–which seems to happen so often that at this point it might be written into his contract–that they’re aiming for the Gay Male or the Female audience? Then again, if we were to look at it with […]

The Interview – Review

 “The Producers Of The Interview Should Consider The Sony Hacking Fortuitous Because There’s No Other Way Such An Otherwise Middling Movie Would Receive So Much Attention.” When I first learned of all the hullabaloo over Sony Pictures’ The Interview, the first thing that came to mind was that if it weren’t for the hack, there’s no way the […]

‘Neighbors’ Red Band Trailer

There are some good moments in the trailer for Nicholas Stoller’s “Neighbors,” (particularly the airbag incident) but I don’t know…it somehow feels so calculated, as if some studio executive put what they think today’s young people like into a computer, and among various other things out came the names: Seth Rogen, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Zac […]

‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Trailer

Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph” took a while, but it’s finally growing on me.  I like it even more since I learned that John C. Reilly, as opposed to Seth Rogen, (who happens to sound quite a bit like Reilly) is voicing the character. Though truth be told, I would prefer John C. McGinley even more (mainly because […]
