D2: The Mighty Ducks’ D25th Anniversary

When D2: The Mighty Ducks opened 25 years ago, I didn’t see it because I was any big fan of The Mighty Ducks. I thought it had been an average underdog sports movie where Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez...

Shazam! Movie Review: Super Friends

Yes, folks, this is the first live-action Shazam! movie ever. I know a lot of you think Sinbad was in a genie movie, and it’s funny that this Shazam! briefly addresses the concept of mass hysteria lik...

Naked Gun 33 1/3’s 25.00th Anniversary

TCA: Meet the Doom Patrol

Doom Patrol is a new superhero team on the DC Universe streaming service. Perhaps even lesser known than the Suicide Squad, Doom Patrol will introduce viewers to Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), Larry T...

Sundance 2019: The Blair Witch Project 20th Anniversary – I Like It Now

I did not like The Blair Witch Project when it came out in the summer of 1999. I even called it The Blair Shit Project because I was clever. Like, nice job selling a pile of rocks and a bundle of stic...
