Vince Vaughn hasn't had a lot of luck in recent years when it comes to picking good roles. Ever since his smash hit Wedding Crashers in 2005 things have seemed to go down hill. From Fred Claus to The Watch to last year's lackluster The Internship... Read the full review »

2012 saw an unnecessary reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. With a new cast and new director things could have really gone either way for the film. Financially it performed quite well and audiences seemed to like it despite many similarities to th... Read the full review »

Buddy cop films have been a hit or miss genre going all the way back to the 80's where we saw some of the very best of the genre. In recent years there haven't been many, mostly because they end up being quite bad like Kevin Smith's Cop Out. But e... Read the full review »

Neighbors is the latest film to star comedian Seth Rogen. Rogen tends to come out with 2 to 3 comedies a year and for the most part the majority of them I have rather enjoyed. This time around Rogen has teamed up with Zac Efron as they go head to... Read the full review »

Aside from a CGI film in 2007, it has been over 20 years since we've seen a live action film of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. While that film didn't really spark a ton of interest in the property, it did lead to a Nickelodeon series that has b... Read the full review »

Just a few years ago we were introduced to the first Pitch Perfect. From the trailers it looked like it could be the movie version of Glee, which could be a good or bad thing, or it could just be an absolute train wreck. Surprisingly enough the fi... Read the full review »

Another year goes by and here we have another big budget Adam Sandler comedy. Every time I review a Sandler film I always say the same thing, the guy is talented but he continues to make films that are so low brow with their humor that they just a... Read the full review »
