Movie Review - Bad Teacher

Movie Review - Bad Teacher
Timberlake and Diaz by David Schuster Remember the movie “Bad Santa” with Billy Bob Thornton? That movie was hilarious and good. “Bad Teacher” on the other hand is neither. In fact it was just the opposite. Incredibly non funny and plain junk. “Bad Teacher” stars Cameron Diaz who still has that kick ass hot body but... Read more »

Movie Review - Bridesmaids

Movie Review - Bridesmaids
by David Schuster Finally a movie that you truly can laugh at and I mean… really loud. “Hangover 2″ was a complete dud and “Pirates of the Caribbean” was plain stupid. Added to that the Bulls elimination and nothing but mediocre (at best) baseball for the next four months and I needed my humor bone touched. And touched... Read more »

Movie Review - The Hangover Part 2

Movie Review - The Hangover Part 2
by David Schuster While nursing my own hangover from the quick end of the Bulls season I opted to see “Hangover 2.” Now I will tell you up front that I was in the minority in thinking that the original was not all that funny. Silly with some embarrassing moments for sure but no where... Read more »

Movie Review - "Arthur" with Russell Brand

by David Schuster It might have been telling that of the two movies that featured Russell Brand that came out last weekend it was the animated movie that garnered more money. Yes it was “Hop” that pulled in more cash then “Arthur”. But since many consider Brand to be a cartoon like character maybe it... Read more »

Movie Review - Your Highness

The evil wizard Leezar.
One critic wrote of “Your Highness,” “What if you wrote a comedy and nobody laughed?”  Granted, there were only half a dozen others in the theater, but they were laughing along with me.  He also wrote “McBride is dull. Franco does his best to invoke ridiculous overacting.”  Some people just don’t get it.  That’s the... Read more »

DVD Review - Scott Pilgrim vs the World

Every so often a movie comes along that you know will become a cult classic.  A perfect example is “The Big Lebowski.” It had an assortment of quirky, yet loveable characters, a crazy, but fascinating plot, and some compelling action. Scott Pilgrim vs the World will probably be another one of those kinds of movies. ... Read more »

Movie Review - "Paul"

This is hardly your typical “fish out of water” story, when the two fish are a pair of Brits on holiday in the US, and the “normal” person is an alien who crash landed here in the late 1940′s. Paul, the alien has been a “guest” of the government all this time, but now fears... Read more »

Movie Review - "Take Me Home" with Topher Grace

by David Schuster In my last review (“The Adjustment Bureau”) I said that I took in a double feature paying for one and sneaking into a second movie. That movie was “Take Me Home Tonight” and since I didn’t pay for it I don’t feel as ripped off as I would have if I shelled... Read more »

Movie Review - Hall Pass

by David Schuster Sudeikis and Wilson After watching the absolute worst broadcast ever of the Academy Awards I felt the need to cleanse the stench of that show out of my mouth and went in search of a comedy. Why a comedy? Because I didn’t laugh even once while watching the Oscars. Not a laugh,... Read more »
