On Monster-in-Law

When I first saw Monster-in-Law, featuring Jane Fonda, Elaine Stritch, Wanda Sykes, and Jennifer Lopez – I loved it. It’s just freaking hilarious, particularly Fonda, Sykes, and Stritch. According to the CinemaBlend review: After a fifteen year absence from theaters Jane Fonda returns, inexplicably choosing a Jennifer Lopez vehicle as her means of re-entry. Her … Continue reading

On The Breakfast Club

On The Breakfast Club

After watching the travesty of Sixteen Candles, I watched The Breakfast Club, also directed by John Hughes, which both feature Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall.

On Man of Steel

On Man of Steel

Man of Steel is just not a good film. Certainly, I enjoyed Smallville even when the stories depicted were far away from the comic origins (i.e. Chloe Sullivan).
