Quote Review: Rock of Ages (2012)

“This place is about to become a sea of sweat, ear-shattering music and puke.”

Here’s a film so shamelessly cheesy that it makes one of those gargantuan pizzas you find in a city like Orlando seem nutritious by comparison.  Never mind leave standards and plausibility at the door, this is the type of movie you enjoy after too many drinks on a Saturday night.  But if you need your 80’s music fix with some sort of a story attached, then step forward!

Quote Review: Stardust Memories (1980)

“What is it the comedian says when his jokes are going well? ‘I murdered that audience’…’I killed ’em’…’They screamed’…’I broke ’em up.'”

Though viewers apparently appreciate Stardust Memories most for its similarities and references to other works (whether by Allen or not), going into the movie blind doesn’t mean enjoyment will be absent. Truth be told, it’s a bit of a commentary on how any director can imagine or actually see things; giving us the serious and silly points back and forth. It’s not the most investing film out there, but still well worth checking out even if you’re barely familiar with Allen’s other works.

Quick Impressions: Episode 226 (Faith Hilling)

Season 16 of South Park continues to become forgettable and little more than a toss-away in the meme-focused episode Faith Hilling.  The pop culture satire has hit an overbearing note that really says all it needs to in the first few minutes.  It’s still nonsensical like always, but anyone who missed out needn’t worry about hunting down this week’s offering.
