RYAN: This is a modern western movie. There are cops and robbers, cowboys and indians but in present day. It’s a bank heist action film without much action. It’s slow moving, boring… there’s a lot of space between good moments. I felt impatient watching this. It’s a good case of mismanaging expectations because I went ..
RYAN: This is an R-rated, animated film for adults, courtesy of one Seth Rogen and company. And I was hoping that, going in, it potentially could be as great as This is the End was but this time animated. And It’s basically The Secret Life of Groceries, only not as good as the Pets variety. It should be so wrong ..
RYAN: The Angry Birds Movie… Really? CHUCK: (laughs) RYAN: I had zero interest in this film so went in with very low expectations going into this film. Of course I’ve played Angry Birds. Who hasn’t? But I never got into it as much as Candy Crush, Tetris, Unblock Me… Some app games are addictive and apparently they can ..
RYAN: This movie is pretty much summed up by the title and really isn’t much more than that. I think it wanted to come across as one of those “too wacky to be true/you can’t make this stuff up” stories but I wasn’t very entertained by it. It’s mostly boring. KEVIN: I agree. I wasn’t ..
RYAN: I was so excited when I heard there would be a new Pee-wee movie. Unlike My Big Fat Greek Wedding, I actually wanted another Pee-wee movie. This Big Holiday comes 31 years after the classic Big Adventure and 28 years after Big Top. It’s exclusively available on Netflix where we just watched it. You don’t care how many years later it ..
RYAN: This is the new Hank Williams biopic starring Tom Hiddleston, most popularly known as Loki from Thor and The Avengers. Elizabeth Olsen costars and I was really looking forward to this because these biopics tend to be very good and are usually Oscar bait. And I love Tom. I was hoping this would be similarly entrapping like Walk the ..
RYAN: Sometimes you go into a movie with high expectations and the movie exceeds them – but what’s it called when you go with with low expectations and it’s even worse than you expected? CHUCK: (laughs) Submarining low expectations? RYAN: This movie is horrible. One of the worst I’ve seen in years. CHUCK: It’s one of ..
RYAN: This is a spoof comedy by Marlon Wayans along the lines of Scary Movie but it’s not even a little bit palatable. This is one of those movies where you’d be more entertained having a root canal than sitting through it. CAROLINE: (laughs) That’s horrible, honey. I’m so sorry, though I’m not surprised. RYAN: I can ..
RYAN: This is the drama that’s getting an incredible amount of awards buzz – already garnering wins and nominations for leading ladies Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. We were both excited to see this; especially since it’s our first movie together in over a year! But it’s really not what we expected. CAROLINE: The Weinstein ..
