Movie Review: ‘Gods of Egypt’ challenge Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldeau to dazzle audiences

I don’t want to call “Gods of Egypt” kitsch, because that would imply on some level that “Gods of Egypt” is fun. It’s not. In fact, “Gods of Egypt” has to be one of the least fun, joyless slogs you’d never want to sit through. But it is kitsch. Kitschy in the way that pewter […]

Movie Review: Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool is Marvel’s latest instalment of superheros

So, “Deadpool” was number one at the box office two weeks in a row, huh? That’s interesting. Or depressing. One of those.

I’m sure when you shouted, “That was the worst movie I ever saw,” shortly before you gave a very theatrical thumbs down as you made a loud, prolonged fart noise during […]

B Movie: ‘Crafting a Nation’ one micro brew at a time

Documentaries can be very divisive among movie goers as some may find them boring. However, the 2013 documentary “Crafting a Nation” is perfect for all who love craft beer. Often times documentaries relating to beer in any manner take a more cold business minded approach to the subject. The focus tends to end up on […]
