Get Him To The Greek (2010) “Get Him To The Greek” is a spin-off of “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”  While the film doesn’t star Jason Segel, the movie based on characters that he created and that appeared in FSM.  And unlike FSM, “Get Him To The Greek” succeeds on a number of levels. What makes this film work is that it didn’t try to turn itself into a serious romantic comedy.  It stuck with what it was, a silly comedy.  Only at the very end is there a bit of seriousness.  The film brings back Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) as the lead singer for Infant Sorrow.  After a disastrous album, Snow is ostracized and falls off the wagon.  His life turns upside down and he becomes another musician that disappears from the limelight. Jonah Hill portrays Aaron Green, an A&R rep for Pinnacle.  With the decline of the music ...

MacGruber (2010) Here we go again.  Here we have this year's college dorm movie that we spawn endless quotes.  Yikes.  There have been great movies of the past that have inspired numerous everyday quotes including “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” to “Austin Powers.”  I have a strong feeling that “MacGruber” doesn’t deserve to be part of that list. Anyone that remembers the short-lived previews of this movie already know that it is a spoof-comedy type film.  “MacGruber.”  “MacGyver.”  See where I’m going with this.  The film starting out trying to be a spoof on MacGyer’s ability to fashion ordinary objects into escape objects and explosives.  Sadly, the film didn’t succeed on that level, nor does it manage to find its own foothold. MacGruber (Will Forte) is a retired military expert that is called back to duty to find a nuclear warhead and VonCunth (Val Kilmer), ...

$5 A Day (2008) “$5 A Day” is your typical independent film filled with a great cast.  The plot is standard, always trying to keep you on your toes.  I stress “trying.”  Like most all films that use an overdone primary plot, this film tries to add in little twists and turns that don’t add up in the end. Christopher Walken and Alessandro Nivola star as a father and son con team.  The son, Flynn, has disowned his father and is trying to get his life back on track after a year in prison.  Unfortunately, his life starts to fall apart when he loses his job and his girlfriend moves out. When Flynn learns that his father, Nat, is dying he struggles to accept whether it is the truth or not.  With all the cons his father pulled in the past, and continues to do so ...

Breakfast Club, The (25th Anniversary Edition) (1985) John Hughes is a legend when it comes to 1980s cinema.  They speak to the members of Generation Y, more specially those born in the late 70s and early to mid 80s.  Hughes' films were coming of age tales that are without a doubt considered dated in today's cinematic society.  In fact, those born beyond the late 80s rarely see the attraction of the film and its characters. I am one of the lucky ones to have been born in the timeframe in which this film is appreciated.  While I can definitely see the age of the film sticking out like a sore thumb, the film always draws me back in.  These Hughes' films are a perfect definition of nostalgia. "The Breakfast Club" is probably one of Hughes more notable 80s flicks.  It tops the list with "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Sixteen ...

Showgirls (1995) "Showgirls" as you have never seen before, or might not want to see.  In glorious, high-definition, sparkling 1080p Blu-ray video.  I'm sure many of you out there are asking yourself the same question I am.  How can this title come to Blu-ray so soon before other more deserving titles?  Well, we are going to have to table that question and just go with the flow. "Showgirls" is presented here as a 15th anniversary, Sinsational Edition.  However, there isn't anything new here in terms of what the film reveals.  That is probably because the film already revealed everything possible, both in terms of some sort of a resemblance of a story and every girl's body part imaginable. Paul Verhoeven has had an illustrious career.  He has spread himself throughout the genres of the filmmaking.  "Total Recall," "Basic Instinct, "Hollow Man," and a Sarah ...
