Deerskin review

Have you ever loved a jacket? I mean really loved a jacket? Ruined your life for a coat? Destroyed your marriage and your finances for cool-looking cool-weather clothing? Have the fringes on your outfit caused you to live a fringe existence, evaporating your sanity, and driving you to a rampage? And was your outfit made out of Deerskin?

Director Quentin Dupieux’s new film will certainly speak to anyone with a dash of fashionphilia, or even a simple desire to rid the world out of outerwear. It’s a completely bonkers exercise in lunacy and cold, calculated obsession, all revolving around a really groovy suede outfit. Read More »

Tammy and the T-Rex Review

Tammy And The T-Rex is a tale as old as prehistoric time. Boy meets girl. Girl falls in love with boy. Girl’s punk ex-boyfriend kidnaps her new crush and leaves him to be mauled by lions in a wildlife park. Wounded boy is stolen by a crazed genius, has his brain removed, then implanted into an animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex. Boy, now a Jurassic Park prop, goes on a deadly rampage in order to win back his lover and reclaim a new body. Shakespear meets Mary Shelley meets 90s slapstick comedy.

Zombieland is all about making new friends and killing the old zombie. That seems to be the case with Zombieland: Double Tap, which follows much of the same zombie-slaying and family-bickering ways of the original film, but with more star-studded supporting actors and more awards to trade between main cast members Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Emma Stone. But the more the merrier, promises the latest Zombieland Double Tap featurette released by Sony. Watch the new featurette below.

Between Two Ferns The Movie Review

As surreal in its own way as the faux talk-show that became a viral sensation on its way to the big screen, Between Two Ferns: The Movie defies description. On the surface, the Netflix film may seem like an unnecessary expansion of a bite-sized idea, a post-modern version of the kinds of movies churned out in the 1990s based on Saturday Night Live sketches. But that post-modern sensibility means that even the streaming film’s shoestring plot is itself a deadpan gag, one more part of the Mobius strip of ultra-dry humor that star Zach Galifianakis and writer/director Scott Aukerman are known for. This movie won’t land on everyone’s wavelength, but for those who fit its style, it’s a delight.
