Ted 2 (2015)

Ted 2 (2015)
Seth McFarlane honestly frustrates me. He’s proven time and again that he is more than capable of being funny, whether it’s with American Dad, the first Ted movie or the early days of Family Guy. But more recently, he has severely fallen by the wayside with stuff like The Cleveland Show, A Million Ways To Die In The West and the current days of Family Guy… Continue reading “Ted 2 (2015)”

Inside Out (2015)

Inside Out (2015)
These emotional-beings (Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Fear and Anger) are our main characters, a combination tech-crew/board-of-directors guiding the day-to-day responses of young Riley in a manner that literalizes and mechanizes the concept of emotional development: The crew takes turns dealing out reactions… Continue reading “Inside Out (2015)”

Ted (2012)

Ted (2012)
Seth MacFarlane’s directorial debut is akin to his hit animated television series Family Guy. In other words, it is hit and miss. After wishing his teddy bear would come to life, John Bennett (Wahlberg) grows up with a talking bear called Ted (voiced by MacFarlane)… Continue reading “Ted (2012)”

Minions (2015)

Minions (2015)
A prequel/spin-off to the Despicable Me franchise will take you at the beginning of time and you’ll see Minions evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who exist only to serve history’s most villainous masters. By 1968, the lack of a master to serve drives them into depression, so Kevin, Stuart and Bob go on a long journey to find their new supervillain boss… Continue reading “Minions (2015)”

Deadpool (2016)

Deadpool (2016)
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the vulgar and ultra violent Deadpool slashes its way into theaters with resounding success. I’m not willing to call it an “anti superhero movie”, but much like its main character–it’s sarcastic, self-aware and it relentlessly pokes fun at pop superhero tropes. Continue reading “Deadpool (2016)”

Finding Dory (2016)

Finding Dory (2016)
This sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo acts as an origins story for everyone’s favorite absent-minded fish, Dory. It shows her as a cute little baby, stumbling over her words and innocently gazing into her parents’ eyes. Then, one day, her short-term memory loss gets the best of her and she loses her family, unable to remember how… Continue reading “Finding Dory (2016)”

Masterminds (2016)

Masterminds (2016)
David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) is stuck in the monotony of driving an armored truck day in and day out, so when his work crush lures him into the heist of a lifetime, David’s all in. Despite a pack of harebrained bandits and an absurdly flawed plan, David manages to steal $17 million… Continue reading “Masterminds (2016)”
