Thank the podcast gods for Dan Savage's Lovecast. He welcomed Abbi and Ilana from Broad City on his raucous March 15 episode and introduced me to a new television series! I am on the dusty side of youth and wasn't sure I'd relate to Abbi and Ilana's New York City shenanigans but after...

The 100-Year Old Man who Climbed Out a Window and Disappeared is the highest grossing Swedish film of all time and an absolute delight to watch. I don't want to reveal too much of the plot because part of the delight of the film is watching each bizarre turn of events unfold. It is hilarious and...

   I will be honest. I watch movies based on who is on the cover of the dvd case. Somehow I suspect I am not the only one who does so. When I saw Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Firth on the case I said wow, gotta see this. I was not disappointed.  Samuel L Jackson is hilarious as a...

Melissa McCarthy did not disappoint in this movie. The details of the storyline are pretty vague when it comes to the trailer and I think that was great because there were so many more surprises in the movie. It's definitely full of laughs. There are some heart felt moments as well, but the...

This is definitely not the typical western movie. The storyline is a bit predictable, but I think this movie was an attempt to parody the western movies. I did love that throughout the movie, the main character highlights the many ways you could die in the west. In that aspect it can be...
