"Camp Fred": Juvenile. Irritating. Plagiaristic. Mediocre.

11 December 2012 2:00 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

“Iwanappeepee on you, Iwanapeepee on you, Iwanapeepee on all of you.”

Fred (Lucas Cruikshank) is a character that is so annoying that when Fred’s dad (John Cena) inevitably throws him through a table it’s like somebody is scratching an itch. Fred’s got a helium-based voice and the most offensive campy performance outside the 1980’s. Fred wants to go to Camp Superior, but his mom (Siobhan Fallon) signs him up to Camp Iwanapeepee run by Floyd Spunkmeyer (Tom Arnold). It’s a crappy camp that serves gruel and bug juice (made from bugs). Spunkmeyer really wants to win a competition of some kind which they haven’t been able to win in the past years of existence. And, possibly, there’s something weird going on. You know, besides everything.

Review: We Need to Talk About Kevin (Blu-ray)

21 June 2012 8:00 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Director Lynne Ramsay’s last film was 2002’s Morvern Callar and involved a woman’s psychological struggle with her life. Her new film, We Need to Talk About Kevin, is an equally troubling portrait of a mother struggling with a hateful child and a husband who refuses to see the light.

Eva and Franklin (Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly) are a happy young couple in New York City with thriving careers and a cozy apartment. This is soon upended when they welcome a baby boy named Kevin. As an infant, he screams and cries in the company of his mother, only to quiet down and coo around his father.

Kevin is an unhealthy child psychologically, as he has no friends or interest in knowing anyone, including his parents. He quickly draws a line in the sand between his parents, manipulating and pitting them against each other as the he gets older. »

Blu-ray Review: Tilda Swinton Captivates in ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’

1 June 2012 6:22 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Many critics failed to take Lynne Ramsay’s “We Need to Talk About Kevin” seriously, dismissing it as an art house retread of “The Omen.” Such a simplistic label fails to take into account the film’s carefully textured portrait of a deeply fractured mother-son relationship. Though the film takes its premise to melodramatic extremes, it does harbor considerable insight into the repercussions of a disconnect between parent and child.

Eva (Tilda Swinton) is the sort of mother who causes strangers to wince while passing her in the supermarket. She can barely contain the intense dislike that she feels for her child. Motherhood is a form of entrapment in her eyes, and her attempts to care for her young son lack any sense of genuine compassion. When she snaps on a hollow smile to calm her crying son, the moment is both chilling and darkly funny. It only gets »

Meet Edgar in This Scene We Love from ‘Men in Black’

27 May 2012 2:26 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s Sunday afternoon, time to celebrate another scene we love in our weekly column, Scenes We Love. With the release of Men in Black III – a threequel that turned out to be far more fun than anyone expected — we thought it appropriate to take a look back at the franchise from whence it has come. But as we watched Men in Black II, we didn’t exactly find any scenes worth sharing. Lets all just agree that the second film was no good and skip right back to the beginning, to the birth of the series’ first (and still most entertaining) villain, Edgar. In what is, in the opinion of this writer, his most odd but entrancing contemporary performance, Vincent D’Onofrio shows up as the domestically abusive country bumpkin who is sucked into a whole by a big alien bug and spit out anew nothing but a hilarious meat suit.

DVD Review: ‘Another Happy Day’ Plunges Headfirst Into Familial Hellhole

9 February 2012 7:18 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Another Happy Day” is essentially the inverse of “Rachel Getting Married.” Instead of an unstable, self-pitying girl wreaking havoc on an otherwise pleasant wedding, we have a sensitive, otherwise pleasant woman driven mad by her unstable, self-pitying family…at a wedding, no less. I’ve seen war enemies with less animosity than this group of miserable basket cases.

Of course, weddings have routinely been a hotbed of family dysfunction typified by Robert Altman’s flawed yet woefully underrated 1978 satire, “A Wedding.” “Happy Day” is closer in spirit to Noah Baumbach’s caustic and somewhat repellant 2007 effort, “Margot at the Wedding,” albeit without the handheld photography. There’s a lot of talent on display that’s worth admiring, but the film is more depressing and drab than it is funny or insightful.

DVD Rating: 2.5/5.0

It’s the directorial debut of Sam Levinson (son of Barry), and it’s clear that »
