I have really been putting off writing this review, even more so than normal. Why? Simply because I was so misled by the theatrical, and television advertising of Adventureland, and to be quite honest I am feeling rather ripped off. You see, I was under the impression that Adventureland was going to fall into the same scene as Greg Mottola’s previous film, Superbad. Boy was I wrong.
You’ll find nothing new in Big Stan. It doesn’t take any risks, it doesn’t try anything edgy or different. The movie itself follows the same generic formula that so many comedies before it has followed. But there is something special in this ridiculous prison comedy.
I Love You Man, what an annoying title. I say this because I can remember my theater days and can just imagine how many times I would here people trying to make a joke out of it when purchasing a ticket. I actually arrived at the theater a little early and was talking with the lady at the box office, and in the short time I was was there three different people tried to make this joke.

Lars and the Real Girl is a quirky, bizarre, and heatwarming tale of acceptance. Like it or not, this is a film you will not soon forget. Starring Ryan Gosling as one of the most bizarre characters I have ever seen!

Yeah, that’s right, I watched Pink Panther 2. I know, it isn’t even close to my normal genre, but it seems that I have a soft spot for Steve Martin. I was really torn on even giving Pink Panther 2 a chance though, seeing as how the first one was such a disaster.
My Name is Bruce is the latest film from cult hero and “B” movie icon Bruce Campbell. Campbell is known for his roles in campy, cheesy sci-fi films, and in My Name is Bruce he displays exactly why he has become a cult hero. The film itself is one giant spoof of his movie career. It doesn’t…
What stands out about this film is the surreal music, style and authenticity the band totally pulls off as a grindhouse spaghetti western. The film really captures the 60’s genre look and themes right down to the psychedelic pot smoking, and classic western rock music. It took me a few minutes to adjust myself to this film, but once I did it felt like I was truly watching an old 60’s style grindhouse movie…
