The Jesus Rolls

The Jesus Bombs, rather.  So I’ve been anticipating this character spinoff from The Big Lebowski for AGES now, and Liz being out one night provided the perfect opportunity – and, casting the film’s 4.3 IMDB stars to one side, in I went.  If there was ONE takeaway from Pirates Of …

The Proposal

Agreeing to marry your ball-bustin’ boss to keep your job because her visa’s expired and she doesn’t want to leave the country? Yep – perfectly reasonable premise there. The stupidity unfolds as we discover that Ryan Reynolds’ character’s heir to an Alaskan business empire & is trying to claw his …

Masterminds

Frigging silly film – definitely earned all of it’s 5.8 IMDB stars. Frequently treading the wrong side of the border with “too stupid”, there was something loveable about this. I really can’t put my finger on why I didn’t hate it. Zach Galifianakis is conspicuously absurd, and the one thing …

Palm Springs

Described to me as “The Groundhog Day remake that nobody asked for” – am I just getting too old/cynical, or is it fair to describe this as Groundhog Day mashed up with a “best friend’s wedding” trope? I thought Cristin Milioti did a genuinely believable job of holding the story …

Thunder Force

Thunder Farce. I reckon they came up with one implausible scenario/joke for this, then built a film around it.  I could never understand the opprobrium out there aimed at Melissa McCarthy, however after seeing this and Life Of The Party the picture’s starting to become a little clearer.

Moxie

I love a good “girls strike back” film, only it genuinely pisses me off that this kind of female empowerment has to come as a result of guys being complete dicks. Why can’t we have a story where the alpha-jock types are supportive and respectful of women from the get-go? …

The Three Stooges

I put this on late one night out of morbid curiosity, expecting VERY LITTLE but at the same time looking forward to seeing the performance of Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe… and was actually quite pleasantly surprised!  When you consider how 2-bit an original Three Stooges film was, I feel like …

The Night Before

Utterly ridiculous Christmas film where 3 dickheads action a pact and try to find the most amazing party of the year, parallelled by an “A Christmas Carol”-style subplot, and – surprise, surprise – Seth Rogen getting absolutely off his tits on a variety of drugs.  I’ll be honest and say …
