When in Rome

Released 01/29/2010                              Rated: PG-13 If I had rewatched the trailer beforehand, I probably wouldn’t have picked up this DVD from the library. I guess I was on a Kristen Bell kick after taking a chance on the gem that is … Continue reading

Friends with Benefits

Released 07/22/2011                              Rated: R Every now and again, two movie studios will *coincidentally* release similar movies within the same year. In 1998 we had A Bug’s Life, and Antz. In 2013 we had Olympus Has Fallen, and White House Down. … Continue reading

The Nanny Diaries

Released 08/24/2007                              Rated: PG-13 I saw this movie once, probably right after it came out on DVD. All I remember is not being that impressed by it; I was probably expecting more of a comedy. I recently found the book … Continue reading

Elf

Released 11/07/2003                              Rated: PG I think this is one of Will Ferrell’s better comedies. Most of his films I just can’t get into, I find them too dumb, but this one works for me. It’s a decent blend of comedy, … Continue reading

Crimson Peak

Released 10/16/2015                              Rated: R I enjoyed this film. I enjoyed it a lot, up until the twist, which resulted in the ending. It’s not a bad twist, and I certainly didn’t see it coming, but I guess I was just … Continue reading
