Black Adam: Don’t even bother

Can you smell what the Rock is cooking? If it’s an anti-hero superhero movie for the struggling DC Universe? Then it’s a steaming turd burger covered in cliché sauce and too much exposition! Johnson wants to be the next Ahnold … Continue reading

Why Gestapo NPH for this month?

It’s a nod to one of the best Satires made in the Nineties…Starship Troopers which hit theaters 25 years ago. Like most movie goers, I saw it the first time and thought, “Hmm, pretty decent Sci-Fi/Action flick. Not sure it … Continue reading

The King’s Man

Since Taron Egerton decided play Elton John and passed on being Gary for a third time in the pretty clever Kingsman flicks, the people running this possible rival to James Bond decided to go the lazy, en vogue direction…a prequel. As if … Continue reading

Lucky Logan

Currently, the laziest and most popular screed we’re subjected to is either “the MCU is played out” or Star Wars, take your pick if you think it will make you sound smarter than you really are. One such critic is Martin … Continue reading

The Exchange

Prez Grampa’ Brunch may have declared the Pandemic over and told us to just live with it, once again proving the Leftists’ point in how there is NO MEANINGFUL DIFFERENCE between the modern Democrats (really the NeoLiberal Party) and psycho … Continue reading

RIP Louise Fletcher

Louise had two big major roles she’ll be remembered for with the public. With Boomers, she was the evil Nurse Ratched in the film adaptation of Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The villain who is supposed to be … Continue reading

Your Highness

Here’s a dud that didn’t age well after 11 years with James Franco being revealed as a creep adding insult to the injury my eyes endured for almost two hours. I definitely need to see Danny McBride in The Righteous Gemstones … Continue reading

1997: L.A. Confidential debuts in theaters

Somebody brought this up on Twitter which got me to thinking, did I review this movie when it came out during the days Maggi Picayune was exclusively in print? No and Yes. No, not really in much depth as other Nineties’ … Continue reading

Villains

Villains isn’t a terribly original film about two robbers on the lam who break into the house of two psychopaths while hiding out from Johnny Law. Tarantino built a whole act around this with his poorly aged and overrated Pulp Fiction. … Continue reading

A great Princess Bride joke!

Someone at my job did this. As soon as I spotted it, I knew the reference instantly because it’s only one of my favorite movies of all time! Good thing I wasn’t riding by on horseback.

Ingrid Goes West

Ingrid is a stupendous Dark Comedy that’s more than Aubrey Plaza doing her trademark psycho character long perfected with Parks & Rec and The Little Hours. To me it’s also a dig on how lame and shallow the “Instagram Famous” are. It’s what this movie … Continue reading

Permanent

This really cute Coming-of-Age movie set in the Eighties helped solidify how much I enjoy seeing Rainn Wilson in about anything. Before you ask, I’ve barely watched the American version of The Office. I have no opinion of it, thus, I … Continue reading

RIP Olivia Newton John

Olivia was a huge artist in the soundtrack of my grade school days. Even before every other kid at St. Matthew’s got the Grease soundtrack as a gift, she was a staple of AM radio via WLS (Chicago) with her Soft … Continue reading

Charlie Says

I decided to revive this sub-category of movie reviews/discussion for several reasons: I just don’t go to the movie theaters as often due to my need to save money, the theatrical choices remain lame and the Pandemic isn’t really over. … Continue reading

RIP Paul Sorvino

Another great actor who played villains and not just gangsters as per Goodfellas; he was Kissinger in Oliver Stone’s Nixon, head of the Capulet family in the horrible 1996 take on Romeo & Juliet, The Stuff and The Rocketeer. He even did cartoon voice work via Duckman and Hey … Continue reading
