Top of the Pops: Bridesmaids – The summer comedy that finally let women dominate the funny spotlight. It’s no surprise this was going to happen, nor that it was done by SNL writers/actresses. Possibly the funniest thing I’ve seen this year. I a…

Top of the Pops: Thor – The worst of the Avenger lead-in films, yet still worth seeing in anticipation of (our Geek Lord and Master) Joss Whedon’s upcoming feature. It is also available in nauseating 3D, and in the Best Buy exclusive packaging…

Top of the Pops [Contender #1]: X-Men: First Class – Most home movie dollars this week will be spent with this movie. It’s not bad, particularly for comic book fan-boys — although considering my huge crush on Jennifer Lawrence, my judgement is …

Top of the Pops: Madea’s Big Happy Family – Next time someone says Hollywood doesn’t respect Tyler Perry, show them today’s release list. There’s no recent big theatrical release on today’s schedule other than this. Much like African Amer…

Top of the Pops: The Beaver – Entertainment Weekly has an interesting article about re-watching old Mel Gibson movies cast in the light of his more recent tabloid life. What happens when a complete asshole makes a movie that may actually be good, b…

Top of the Pops: Paul – This is not the last part of a Pegg/Frost comedy nerd triple feature. It is funny enough, but it won’t meet the expectation of Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz fans. Without Edgar Wright’s touch, you can see where a gre…

Top of the Pops: Rio – If Dreamworks is always playing second fiddle to Pixar, what is Fox Animation? I love the Angry Birds Rio game on my iPhone.
Classic Re-Issue: Better off Dead – John Cusack was on a roll in the mid-80s, and this was the be…

Top of the Pops: Source Code – One of the first movies that played the prime venue at SXSW this year was also one of my favorite of the festival. It’s not the most complex mystery, but it is done well. I would think offering a Source Code/Knowin…

Top of the Pops: Limitless – How did I miss an action movie starring my wife’s not-so-secret boyfriend, Bradley Cooyer, that rated a decent 70% at RT? Now’s the time to remedy that miss.
Classic Re-Issue: Amélie – Enterprising collectors ha…

Top of the Pops: The Lincoln Lawyer – The best thing I can say about this is how funny the episode of 30 Rock titled “The Rural Juror” is. This movie, however, is by-the-numbers, giving very little reason to be watched.
Classic Re-Issue: Brazi…

Top of the Pops: Hobo with a Shotgun – I’m not a fan of exploitation cinema in general, and most contemporary attempts at reliving the glory days of the 1970s and 1980s golden age of exploitation fall flat. Not so with this spot-on homage starr…

Feeling lazy lately…so this week and last week’s releases come without comment…if I can help myself.

Top of the Pops: Battle: Los Angeles – I didn’t catch this in the theaters because of its abysmal reviews. Hollywood won’t be stopped, though, since this tripled its budget in ticket sales and will probably top the DVD/Blu-Ray charts this weeke…

Top of the Pops: True Grit – One of my favorite films from last year. Nearly perfect in every way, it was robbed of several deserving Oscar awards especially Hailee Steinfeld for Best Supporting Actress.
Critical Mention: Rubber – Remember when…

Top of the Pops: Drive Angry – This movie was stupid absurd fun, and you can recognize the Shreveport-surrounding countryside where I grew up. It’s a shame, though, that the studio didn’t release a 2D/3D combo since this is one of the least off…
