Super Pals In Conflict (Batman V Superman:Dawn of Justice, 2016)

This film has been both hotly anticipated and less than interesting depending on who you ask.  In fact, the talk at the beginning of the week was that people had seen the movie and loved it.  It was starting to look like Deadpool all… Continue Reading “Super Pals In Conflict (Batman V Superman:Dawn of Justice, 2016)”

Baked Goods Part 8 (American Reunion, 2012)

And the franchise came full circle with the first theatrical release since American Wedding.

Baked Goods Part 7 (American Pie Presents tBook of Love, 2009)

Baked Goods Part 6 (American Pie Presents Beta House, 2007)

This continues the story of Erik Stifler.  And the Stifler-centric nature of things continues to not favor the franchise.  This film hammers home what crappy people the Stifler Family Tree is…it appears almost every branch is rotten.  Erik’s biggest struggle in life is not… Continue Reading “Baked Goods Part 6 (American Pie Presents Beta House, 2007)”

Baked Goods Part 5 (American Pie Presents the Naked Mile, 2006)

Baked Goods Part 3 (American Wedding, 2003)

American Wedding focuses heavily on the next step for Jim and Michelle, which was a wise move.  It’s secondary focus is on Stifler, which dominates the beginning of the film.  That is a very rough start. The scenes with Jim and Michelle work well. … Continue Reading “Baked Goods Part 3 (American Wedding, 2003)”

The first film was a big enough hit that we got a sequel.  This time there is no pact, the guys are back from their first year of college and get a summer house so they can party hard.  Pretty much all the girls… Continue Reading “Baked Goods Part 2 (American Pie 2, 2001)”

Baked Goods Part 1 (American Pie, 1999)

American Pie was a movie released promising to bring back the spirit of films Like Porky’s, Hot Dog, Ski School and Revenge of the Nerds.  They were going to push the boundaries, starting with the plot.  The plot is real simple.  Four buddies make… Continue Reading “Baked Goods Part 1 (American Pie, 1999)”

Bustin’ Up

  So, the Ghostbusters Trailer has hit.  And there were responses.  I initially saw plenty of “I’m in” responses.  Suddenly I started to see a lot of “blah” reactions.  Some were super aggressively angry that the trailer was a disappointment. And, I agree to… Continue Reading “Bustin’ Up”
