Turning Red (2022) Review

Pixar can do no wrong. They changed how I view storytelling. How is it possible to make film for everyone? This is what family entertainment looks like! Turning Red is the cutest and darnedest thing. Meilin is a 13-year-old girl that transforms into a giant red panda. This proves to be an inconvenience as she is very emotional and rightfully so. The filmmakers did a great job making me … Continue reading Turning Red (2022) Review

Will Smith Unleashes “New Form” on Chris Rock

Hi, I’m Jeremy and I’m an asshole in recovery. I hold no position of moral authority. It is my sentiment Will Smith should have pulled Chris Rock aside and had a conversation backstage. There are a ton of opinions online about what transpired, some of which I find problematic. Let me be clear, I indulge in the buffoonery by sharing memes and telling jokes. This is … Continue reading Will Smith Unleashes “New Form” on Chris Rock

A Haunted House (2013) Review

I haven’t seen slapstick like this since Scary Movie. Marlon Wayans is a writer and producer as well as the star. He played the role of Malcolm, who moved into a new home with his wife. A couple of days later, supernatural things started happening. It’s parody of movies like Paranormal Activity and The Exorcist. I hollered every five minutes at the bizarre humor in … Continue reading A Haunted House (2013) Review

Jingle All The Way (1996) Review

He is the combination of 90s Sentai shows and Marvel’s Ironman. December is gone but I’m still in the holiday spirit. One Christmas film that stands the test of time is Jingle All The Way, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad. The film has a special place in my heart and you don’t have to wait until next year to watch it. Howard (Schwarzenegger), a father … Continue reading Jingle All The Way (1996) Review

8-Bit Christmas (2021) Review

The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) is a pioneer in the game industry. As a child, my mother gifted me a Super NES. It helped shape who I am today. I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy and have six of their consoles in my home. My fiancée and I happened upon the trailer while on HBO Max. We were hyped to see the laugh fest it … Continue reading 8-Bit Christmas (2021) Review

Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) Review

The Ghostbusters franchise is one I hold in high regard. A ritual of my childhood revolved around viewing VHS tapes on repeat and stalking the TV guide for upcoming programs. To this day, I can’t tell you how many times I have seen the first two. Rumors of a third movie with the original cast floated around for over thirty years. I’m happy to say … Continue reading Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) Review

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 (2021) Review

The story picked up exactly where the last one left off. The director, Bartosz M. Kowalski, retconned the final scene to make this (the sequel) possible. Immediately turned me off. How the hell he thought it was a good idea to ruin the protagonists from the previous film astonished me. In this installment, the mutant cannibalistic twins literally did nothing but sit on their asses. … Continue reading Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 (2021) Review

Free Guy (2021) Review

I saw the trailer for this film over a year ago. It showed such promise as a parody of video game culture. The movie stars Ryan Reynolds as an NPC (non-playable character) that becomes self-aware. It’s one of the most original ideas I’ve seen in a while. Sadly, it turned out to be a convoluted mess with no real message. At one point, I found … Continue reading Free Guy (2021) Review

Ernest Scared Stupid (1991) Review

Before I found out who Jim Carrey was, Jim Varney was one of the funniest guys on TV. Every weekend I saw a movie titled under his comedic moniker, Ernest. However, there is one film that stood out from all the rest and that is Ernest Scared Stupid. Released in October 1991, it is about a foolish man and his dog Rimshot, fighting to save … Continue reading Ernest Scared Stupid (1991) Review

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 12: Chris Margetis of The Manson Bros Midnight Zombie Massacre

Do you like wrestling? I sure as hell do. However, there is one thing I love just as much, horror movies. So, when I tell you this is the perfect lovechild of the two, believe me. This movie is fuckin’ hilarious! The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre is over-the-top (pun intended) and insanely entertaining. I couldn’t stop laughing. Certain jokes stayed with me, even after … Continue reading The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 12: Chris Margetis of The Manson Bros Midnight Zombie Massacre
