MOVIE REVIEW: “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” FINALLY!

I have seen SO MANY stupid female stereotypes in movies lately. There’s the marriage-obsessed woman and the career obsessed woman, who inevitably morphs into the baby-obsessed woman. If an onscreen female doesn’t fall into one of those categories, she’s probably the perpetually drunk and sex-obsessed female. Honestly, I pulled all of those from just ONE MOVIE (thank you How To Be Single for proving my point). That’s probably why I skipped out of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, smiling and wishing I had a Rip Taylor confetti-cannon.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot not only breaks free from those dumb, old stereotypes. It’s also funny as hell in the process. FINALLY! Continue reading →

Movies to Get Excited About in 2016

The holidays are over and it’s honestly kind of depressing, isn’t it? There’s nothing to look forward to, except that one glass of wine you get Saturday night because you’re going to lose this holiday weight, dammit!
Well, some great movies are coming out in the upcoming months. OK, I don’t know if they’re GREAT yet, but there’s enough to get mildly excited about during these snowless winter days.

The Revenant- 1/8
People have asked me if this movie is violent. Well, I reviewed The Revenant for WCSX in Detroit and used the words puckered bunghole to describe it. In fact, there’s a bear-attack scene that’s so intense, some people thought the bear was actually raping Leonardo DiCaprio. The Revenant is CRAZY VIOLENT, but it’s also strangely beautiful and will definitely be nominated for something. Hopefully, DiCaprio will even win an Oscar for letting that bear have its way with him.

Kung Fu Panda 3- 1/29
I liked Kung Fu Panda, but I LOVED Kung Fu Panda 2. I wasn’t expecting much from it, and the hint that Po might find his family had me openly weeping as I left the theater. I also CAN’T WAIT to see what happens to the budding relationship between Po & Tigress! Don’t judge me. Continue reading →
