“Pete” from The League, “Nick” from New Girl, and “April” from Parks and Recreation all in one movie. What’s not to love already?? I’m sure the actors would not like reading that I am labeling them as their most popular roles, but let’s be honest, those are some great role predecessors to their characters in […]

Upon seeing the trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s first foray into film writing and directing, “Ted”, a few months ago, I immediately thought to myself, “Oh man, this is going to be great.”  Ladies and gentlemen, let’s give Seth MacFarlane a giant round of applause.  Not only is the man a comical genius in the television […]

‘Magic Mike’: 14- and 40-year-olds will love it

Okay, let me preface this review by saying I did not go into the screening of “Magic Mike” with very high expectations. A movie about male strippers? A movie about male strippers starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey? Something told me not to take this one too seriously. Oddly enough, (I mean, who could have seen this coming?) it was a great idea to not go into the theater expecting much of anything, because boy, oh boy, not much of anything is exactly what I got out of it.

A Dance Through Maroon 5′s ‘Overexposed’

Does anyone else’s idea of perfection consist of dancers waltzing and twirling around a stage set to the background of Adam Levine’s falsetto ringing through the air? Just me? Awkward.
