At this point, almost major actor will either be in the mix for or star in a franchise movie, and more often than not comic book characters. Where it was once dangerous to be associated with a superhero as it might define your career, now it just means you're likely to sign a nine picture contract. Which is what makes the trailer for Birdman so intriguing.

President Barack Obama appeared on Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns, and reminded us, once again, that you can be the coolest guy on earth and still do the hardest job there is to do. He wasn't there just for fun though. Officially he went on to plug his the Affordable Healthcare Plan, and he chose an interesting platform, but also a funny and sort of strange one. Still,...

The Hangover Part III: Movie Review

THE HANGOVER PART III
When The Hangover hit screens in 2009, it was a breath of fresh air after Judd Apatow and his consortium took over American comedies.  This was no feel-good comedy about people learning lessons, it was about guys doing dumb things they couldn't remember while in Vegas. It also launched Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper as movie stars. The second film,...

The Hangover franchise has all the rigidity of a slasher movie series—you know exactly what’s going to happen each time you go in.  The “wolf pack” will be brought together via some kind of narrative contrivance.  Then, something will go awry, and the group of friends will be sent to some semi-exotic vacation locale and go on a series of wacky misadventures...

The Campaign: Movie Review

The Campaign
    The Campaign unites Will Ferrell with Zach Galifianakis, and the way comedy works these days, it's a surprise they haven't work together sooner. They play opposing candidates in a local election that gets ramped up by petty rivalries and the influence of big money, and turns two reasonable guys into monsters. And it's funny.

Puss in Boots
The Shrek franchise drove itself into the ground after three sequels, so perhaps the only way to go forward was a spin-off. And it's true that one of the best things about Puss in Boots - the fifth film in the franchise - is that it never feels like a Shrek movie. The film follows the feline character (voiced by...

Bored to Death’s season premier had it all: Oedipus, oysters and over-aged boyfriends. The quirky comedy noir hit its stride straight from the opening and kept up the laugh-a-minute pace to the credits.
