Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch (2018) – Movie Review

Full disclosure: I’m positive my parents and sisters made me watch the 1966 “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” special when I was a kid, but I cannot remember it. Having two children of my own, I’ve been planning on reconnecting with it through them, but as yet, I have not. Also, I never bothered to […]

August: Osage County

Considering she’s garnered seventeen Oscar nods and three wins over the last three decades, it seems kind of cliché to mention Meryl Streep as a Best Actress contender during awards season. Her portrayal of Violet, the manipulative, maniacal Weston family matriarch in “August:Osage County”, makes it pretty difficult not to, though; the pill-popping, bile-spewing, cancer-afflicted […]

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

“All it was was a bunch of people walking. Three movies of people walking to a f**king mountain!” Ever since hearing Randal say that seven years ago in Kevin Smith’s Clerks II, I haven’t quite been able to watch Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy the same way since. While many other things […]
