Happy Gilmore–the first team-up between director Dennis Dugan and star Adam Sandler–is one of the better Sandler comedies. “The price is wrong, bitch!” – Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler) to Bob Barker I meant to watch the film for its 25th anniversary but because of Covid and everything, I didn’t get around to doing so. It’s unfortunate, in this case, that I’m only watching it in tribute to the late Bob Barker. Barker, the former host…"Happy Gilmore: The Price is Wrong!"
Marvel Studios is showing signs of franchise fatigue as espionage thriller Secret Invasion concludes its uneven run on Disney+. The series didn’t do what its comic book counterpart did in changing up Marvel’s status quo. Instead, it killed off Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Talos (Ben Mendelsohn). We barely even had time to mourn Hill’s passing before Fury and Talos figured out a plan. Perhaps most surprisingly, Secret Invasion does not even feature a tag…"Secret Invasion Concludes Uneven Run With “Home”"
Secret Invasion continues to upend the status quo in the MCU as the limited series reaches its halfway point on Disney+. This is the shortest episode so far with a running time of 44 minutes. Regardless, there is still a lot of show and things to unpack as the plot plays its course. The episode deals with yet another Skull plot to take out human leadership. It ends with a very big reveal that will…"Secret Invasion – Episode 3 – Betrayed"
The first two episodes of Secret Invasion leave one wondering just how much this series will change up Marvel’s status quo. I want to get this out of the way first: two episodes are not enough to judge the limited series. Marvel sent out press screeners for the first two episodes but the series is six episodes in length. Basically, I’m only able to offer my thoughts on Secret Invasion‘s first two hours at this…"Secret Invasion Seeks to Change Marvel’s Status Quo"
Marvel Studios released the trailer and key art for the upcoming Secret Invasion series following the trailer airing during Sunday Night Baseball. Fans watching the Philadelphia Phillies play the Texas Rangers were lucky enough to catch the trailer live on TV. If not, you’re in luck because I’ve got you covered below. Even after watching the first trailer for the series, Marvel is smart to not give away too much ahead of the series premiere…"Secret Invasion: Marvel Studios Releases Trailer and Key Art"
The entire basis for Rumor Has It… is that a woman learns that both her mother and grandmother were the basis for 1967’s The Graduate. Following the end of Sundance, I was in the mood for a comedy and decided to rewatch this film for the first time since the theatrical release. The fact of the matter is that this film has a solid amount of laughs and laughs are so desperately needed right now.…"Rumor Has It… Is Still Funny Over 16 Years Later"
One can look at We Can Be Heroes as being a copycat of films like The Avengers (and with children) but this film is so much more. Perhaps what is the most surprising is that this is a stand-alone sequel to The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl. Taylor Lautner does not reprise his role. The film finds a way to hide this, of course. While this may be a stand-alone sequel, the film makes…"We Can Be Heroes: A Superhero Film With Heart"
Despite having an all-star talented cast, Once Upon A Time In Venice doesn’t live up to the action comedies that preceded it despite a talented cast. Directed by Mark Cullen from a script co-written with his brother, Rob Cullen, the film stars Bruce Willis, John Goodman, Jason Momoa, Thomas Middleditch, Famke Janssen, Stephanie Sigman, Adam Goldberg, Kal Penn, Christopher McDonald, and Wood Harris. Bruce Willis may be an action star but even his name alone…"Once Upon A Time In Venice is no Die Hard, pass on it"
