REVIEW: Filmage: The Story of Descendents/All

Leave a comment

FILMAGE_movie_coverOne of my personally most anticipated documentaries of all time, Filmage: The Story of Descendents/All. If you haven’t guessed by the title it’s the story of the bands Descendents and ALL. Deedle Lacour and Matt Riggle decided this was something that needed to be documented, and it seems everyone has agreed with them. It’s got a great cast of interviewees including Bill Stevenson, Milo Auckerman, Karl Alvarez, Stephen Egerton, Tony Lombardo, Frank Navetta, Doug Carrion, Ray Cooper, Dave Smalley, Scott Reynolds, Chad Price, David Grohl, Keith Morris, Greg Graffin, and Joey Cape just to name a few. It goes pretty in depth with everything, it covers before the bands were formed, how they were formed, the different eras and into present day. It also focuses on each member for a good amount of time. Even if you know a lot about both of these bands you’re still going to come out of this having learned much more. This is a brilliantly done documentary that covers just about everything you could want it to. This is one of the best music documentaries I’ve ever seen. If you’re a fan of the Descendents, ALL or just punk rock or music in general Filmage needs to be on your ‘to see’ list.

REVIEW: Necessary Evil Super-Villains of DC Comics

1 Comment

Necessarry Evil DocDC comics made a documentary about the Super-Villains of the DC universe. It was narrated by Christopher Lee and had a lot of good people in it. The documentary covers a lot of DC Villains ground but still falls short. They kind of paint brush the villains they cover or just breeze by some of them. I was really hoping they’d go more in depth with the history and the creation of these villains. Overall it was a pretty good comic documentary but could have been so much better. Still recommended viewing for comic book fans.

REVIEW: The Wolf of Wall Street

Leave a comment

WolfofWallStreetNewposterNovrlsfull1Sometimes a movie will come by and you’ll notice it’s the performance of someone’s career. It doesn’t happen too often but sometimes you just get blown away and you know it as it happens. With Martin Scorsese’s latest film, The Wolf of Wall Street it happened twice. This is both Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill at the top of their fucking games. This movie has it all, a great story, lots of great jokes, super fun stuff like insane drug use and tons of nudity, compelling acting and perfect directing. This is a hundred and eighty minutes and you don’t even notice. I’ll even go as far as to say this is Scorsese’s best film since Casino. If you have somehow missed the previews this is based on the true story of Jordan Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), the man is a stockbroker, one that seems to have an incredible gift of talking and selling. It doesn’t take him long to come up with a few creative ways to make money, not all of it is legal. It’s a nice time while it lasts, a very nice time. People getting rich, doing drugs, having fun, but eventually the FBI comes around and well, you know how it goes from there. Just do yourself a favor and go see this fucking movie, it’s incredible.

REVIEW: You’re Next

Leave a comment

4-youre-next-watermarkedYou’re Next was a pretty good attempt at a horror movie. It got some high praise from a lot of people, but a lot of that was just hype. You’ve got a family get together in their house that’s pretty much in the middle of nowhere, soon a gang of killers comes to the house and starts taking out people. Not the most original plot, but it’s a horror movie so I excuse that. Some of the kills were pretty decent, but nothing amazing. And the twist, the movie tried to have a twist; it was alright but far from great as far as movie twists go. Overall the movie was a mix of standard horror and boring. It started out really good and just went downhill from there until the final yawn. I’d say if you’re interested in seeing this movie do it for free when you’ve got some time to kill.

REVIEW: The To Do List

Leave a comment

to_do_list_xlgThe To Do List, written and directed by Maggie Carey, her first time directing, staring Aubrey Plaza with Bill Hader, Donald Glover, Sarah Steele and Alia Shawkat. Basically it’s a teen sex comedy, a category of movies that is overflowing with terrible movies and a few great ones. This one isn’t quite in the terrible category but it’s not even close to being on the list of greats. Brandy Klark (Aubrey Plaza) is an honor student that has graduated high school and is off to collage soon. She does have a problem though, she has no sexual experience. Her friends and sister tell her that this is not the way to start her collage life so she sets out to correct that. She makes a sex list and sets out to check everything off of it before she starts school. It’s far from the worst of these movies I’ve seen, though I think that’s mostly due to the cast but it’s far from great. There were a few parts that had a laugh here and there but I wouldn’t call it a hilarious movie by any means. This is the type of movie that you’re going to watch for free somewhere when you’re home sick one day.

REVIEW: This Is the End

Leave a comment

this_is_the_end_xlgOne of my most anticipated movies in a long time and one of the oddest movies that have been made in quite a while. So we’ve got a giant cast including James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera and Emma Watson (plus many more) all playing themselves in this movie. James Franco throws a party at his new house, Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel come over, while at the party shit goes crazy and apocalyptic situation breaks out, now they’re all trapped in Franco’s house attempting to stay safe. Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen wrote and directed this, and it does not disappoint in anyway. It is the funniest movie I’ve seen this year and I don’t see that changing. I’ve seen it a handful of times at this point and it’s still hilarious each time. This one is highly recommended.
