Now if you’re one of the few people not lining up to see the new Star Wars movie, you do actually have a decent option at the theaters.  In what I consider to be a nice spot of counterprogramming we have the new comedy “Sisters” featuring Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.  There are laughs a plenty and a considerable amount of heart, along with another funny supporting performance by WWE wrestler John Cena that nearly steals the show.  If Jedi or space battles aren’t your thing the “Sisters” just might serve as a viable alternative.  Continue reading

It’s finally here. . .and it doesn’t disappoint!  After the underwhelming response to the prequel trilogy and 32 years after we last encountered Han, Luke, and Leia in a galaxy far, far away,  J.J. Abrams has reinvigorated the most popular space opera in history with a thrilling, emotional, and action packed start of a new trilogy.  Abrams has made a film that can be enjoyed by all fans, new and old alike, and his craftsmanship and attention to drama are wondrous to behold.  Continue reading

Believe it or not, there are actually people out there in the world whose universe does not revolve around the cinematic phenomenon that is “Star Wars.”  (I know, weird right?)  They don’t understand the passion, the history, or the overall cool factor that Star Wars brings to the masses who do get it.  To that end, I will attempt to explain the importance of Star Wars, not just to me but to all those who are going to be spending a couple of hours with roughly a billion of their closest friends this weekend when “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” screens for the first time.  Don’t worry: I’m not trying to convert the unbelievers out there.  I’m just trying to help you folks to understand the phenomenon a little more.

Dog’s Movie House: “In The Heart Of The Sea” Disappointing Effort From Howard And Hemsworth!

Ron Howard is one of our most successful filmmakers and Chris Hemsworth is one of Hollywood’s rising stars, yet the first film they did together, the underseen “Rush” tanked at the box office.  It’s a terrific film but for some reason it failed to connect with audiences.  Now they’ve teamed up again for “In The Heart Of The Sea,” the fact-based tale that inspired Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.”  Now I can’t speak about the box office prospects for the film (although industry analysts say “murky”), but, considering the talent involved, “In The Heart Of The Sea” is a decidedly underwhelming affair.  Continue reading

When I first saw the trailer for “Krampus” the new horror comedy from Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r’ Treat) I wasn’t sure what to think, but I was giving Dougherty the benefit of the doubt because “Trick ‘r’ Treat” is one of my favorite horror films of all time.  After watching the film I’m glad I kept an open mind and if you, dear moviegoer, do the same, you’ll find “Krampus” to be a refreshing bit of demented holiday fun.  Continue reading
