Sausage Party is yet another dumb stoner comedy from Rogen and his idiot friends. Don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing at all wrong with a good stoner animated comedy. We need these, I get it. But this feels like something these boys would have done years ago. Aren’t they past this phase in their careers yet?
Now that it’s out on Blu-ray, ‘Steve Jobs’ can be seen and appreciated by a wider audience for the engaging biopic that it is.
Aaron Sorkin returns to Silicon Valley this time with director Danny Boyle for Steve Jobs, a movie that is less a biopic and more a collection of three one-act plays that are less concerned with the man and more concerned with perpetuating the legend of the magnetic, charismatic, dreamer who founded Apple and revolutionized computing.
Today we celebrate every toker, smoker, and joker who ever had the mantle of responsibility thrust upon them in film, and rank them based on the success they experienced navigating their various situations.
This week sees the wide release of director Clint Eastwood’s newest film, American Sniper, which concerns itself with the story of real-life U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Hollywood has showcased the Navy’s premiere Special Forces squad in dozens of films throughout the years, yet a few portrayals have stood out as particularly memorable. Today’s list is a celebration of the movies that took the time to feature Navy SEALS in a badass fashion.
We’re back this week with guest host Aaron Weber from DadsBigPlan.com. Trevan reviews Neighbors and Trey hits Only Lovers Left Alive. Then all three go into a discussion about comic book movies, the future of summer film, the inherent terribleness of Zach Snyder and much, much more. It’s a loose, chatty podcast. We hope you like it. [...]
Everything you need to know about Neighbors, the new comedy co-produced and starring Seth Rogen, along with a supporting cast that includes Rose Byrne, Dave Franco and Zac Efron, is in the trailer. A happy couple with a newborn settles into suburban life until a frat house moves in next door and all hell breaks loose. [...]
Seth Rogen is one of those actors who who seems like he might have sprouted fully formed from a movie like Slacker. He’s actually Canadian, but his comedic tendencies seem to have evolved from a similar worldview as the Austin fringe thinkers.
After a week off, Trevan, Eric and Trey are back with three movies for your listening pleasure.
Because This is the End has transplanted the egotistical and childish behavior normally reserved for Team Apatow’s lovable manchild characters onto the actors themselves, it feels dangerous.
As someone who felt sentenced to high school, the series reminds me of why I hated it and how my decision making wasn’t that great back then. I won’t say that you’ll see yourself in Freaks and Geeks because everyone’s high school experience is different. Instead, I’ll say the world in the series is consistently dynamic and believable as 1980 Detroit.
A pair of tongue-in-cheek movies about aliens are new on Blu-ray and DVD this week and neither of them involve Men in Black.
Can the film help but force us to recall the Trayvon Martin case, and if it can’t, does that keep us from being able to laugh? No. The Watch doesn’t have that problem, but that doesn’t mean it’s loaded to the gills with gold-star jokes to begin with.
Movie review of “50/50,” where Seth Rogen plays the best friend of Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
