The Despicable Me franchise has devoted a feature length film to the goggle wearing, banana loving yellow blobs, better known as Minions.

Xenophobia Alive and Well at the 87th Academy Awards
The recent salary leak of Sony Pictures Entertainment demonstrated the inequality between gender and race; as fifteen of the seventeen executives appear to be Caucasian males. Wall Street banking is more diversified than a major film studio. It should be of little surprise that Hollywood itself is grappling with the lack of diversity, and white privilege dominated the 87th annual Oscars. [ Read Full ]

Originality at its finest
In the last week or so I have been trying to catch up on some of the new releases. I watched Hansel and Gretel: The Witch Hunters, more so because my kid wanted me to (I am a good mom) and her boyfriend refused. That should have been my first clue, if a boyfriend won't watch the movie, it must be bad. I sit down to watch this movie and the premise is not bad.... a brother and sister are bounty hunters during the witch hunting era. However, they have modern weapons.... Yes, that is right.... a cap and ball revolver, a double automatic crossbow, a pump action shotgun and many others that just make you go WOW... REALLY. This movie was so terrible the actors even knew it and were "like fuck, can a witch just kill me now so I can leave". It could have been good, or even great if they would have kept the modern day guns out of it and maybe the ogre.... Yeah somewhere along the lines an ogre comes along. Not sure if this movie was a fairytale, a blow em up action or a historical mocumentary. I was actually yelling at the TV because of its stupidity... and I only do that during coach couching on Rider Game days. [ Read Full ]
