Review: “Storks”

What do you get when you cross an animator with a director who specializes in raunchy adult humor? Not “Sausage Party”, believe it or not, but Warner Animation’s “Storks”, a kid-friendly yarn that is also funny enough to engage the grown-ups.

We’re the Millers

I remember early on in the year, trailers for We’re the Millers played before almost every screening I attended, and I always looked forward to hearing Billy Squier’s single “The Stroke” (or, rather, Mickey Avalon sampling the song) raging out through the theater speakers. Yes, I’m old enough to remember that as a hit for […]
