Review – Kermit On Crack (“The Happytime Murders”)

What. The. Hell. This is one seriously messed-up movie starring Melissa McCarthy, whose career has now officially hit rock bottom with this film that has her playing a cop against F-bomb dropping R-rated Muppets. OMG! Remember what happened to Whoopi Goldberg and Theodore Rex? * * Somewhere between Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Theodore Rex lies…

Review – Not Quite Going the Extra Mile (“Mile 22”)

Review – Unbearably Cute (“Christopher Robin”)

Not to be confused with last year’s forgettable, Goodbye Christopher Robin, this is Disney’s version of what happens when stuffed animals come to life and try to run your pathetic life. Actually, that sounds more like a nightmare to me, but this movie has Obi-Wan Kenobi & Agent Carter to put them in their place!  …
