McGinley, James Pickens Jr. Writer: Brian Helgeland Director: Brian Helgeland Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: April 12, 2013 Most sports films have to reach a little if they want to be more than character and/or game studies. Many of them are successful, even inspirational, stories of team spirit or friendship or romance or competitiveness, but even a film like INVICTUS, which wove the World Cup football game into the end of apartheid inSouth […]Read On »

Movie Review: WRECK-IT RALPH

Wreck it Ralph | (c) 2012 Walt Disney

Rating: PG Stars (voices): John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk Writers: Phil Johnston and Jennifer Lee, story by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston Director: Rich Moore Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures Release Date: November 2, 2012 TOY STORY was far from the first tale of playthings coming to life once humans were out of sight. The movie’s success owed everything to its execution and details. WRECK-IT RALPH likewise starts with this notion – although in this case, the “toys” are the video characters in arcade games – and goes to wonderful, funny, touching places. Less briefly, […]Read On »

TV Review: GOOD VIBES – Season 1 premiere – “Pilot”

Mondo and Lonnie in GOOD VIBES - Season 1 | ©2011 MTV

Network: MTV, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 27, 2011 With so many animated series vying for audience attention on network and cable television, GOOD VIBES feels like it’s come a little too late to the party. It’s MTV’s companion piece of the return of BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD and it’s a nice fit – it has  similar scatological humor, but it also doesn’t break any new ground either. The premiere episode introduces us to the overweight Mondo (voice of Josh Gad). He’s just moved to the Sunny California beach town of Playa Del Toro with his hot mom Babs (Debi […]Read On »

Movie Review: TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL

Rating: R Stars: Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk, Katrina Bowden, Jesse Moss, Brandon Jay McLaren, Christie Laing, Chelan Simmons Writers: Eli Craig & Morgan Jurgenson Director: Eli Craig Distributor: Magnet Releasing Release Date: September 30, 2011 TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL is an oddity. We can conceptually appreciate its plentiful jokes as they fly past, yet we don’t find ourselves laughing much. It’s not that the movie is unfunny in that awful way of comedies that fall flat, it’s just that, despite all the extreme gore, its quizzical tone doesn’t match the outrageousness it aims for but seldom achieves. Unless one […]Read On »

Stars: Jane Levy, Jeremy Sisto, Cheryl Hines, Carly Chaikin, Alan Tudyk, Allie Grant Writer: Emily Kapnek Director: Michael Fresco Network: ABC, Wednesdays @ 8:30 PM Original Telecast: September 28, 2011 If you’ve read books aimed at teens and tweens (the main characters are teenagers, but the readers are sometimes a little younger), you know the tone of SUBURGATORY – wry and snarky but not mean-spirited, watching peers in a new territory as though they’re aliens and viewing adults as though they are from another dimension altogether. In SUBURGATORY’s pilot, our narrator, fifteen-year-old Tessa Altman (Jane Levy), is uprooted from her […]Read On »
