by Jayden Leggett, Editor In the mood for a Korean movie with soft core sex scenes, quirky Asian comedy and science fiction overtones? Didn’t think so. Nevertheless, those looking to take a walk on the bizarre side of cinema could do a lot worse than The 33D Invader. Here’s the lowdown on the story. In [...]
by Jayden Leggett, Assistant Editor A somewhat dark and bizarre Australian comedy series that has recently been adapted into an American release, Wilfred isn’t the sort of show that just anybody can enjoy. However for those whose minds are open to the possibility that a man can communicate with his girlfriend’s dog, Wilfred might just [...]

First things first, since no one had a better name for this I’m keeping Shock Value as the title for this venture into opiniondom. I’d also like to say hi to everyone that read my first article (I’ll call this weekend mom). So it appears that my big criteria for judging movies is the “entertain [...]
by Jayden Leggett, Assistant Editor What do you get when you combine a satirical look at multiculturalism in Australia with over-the-top comedic racial stereotypes, crass humor and offensive language? That would be the SBS series Swift & Shift Couriers, without a doubt a television show that is sure to have a 50/50 split of adoring [...]
by Chuck Lindas, Reporter Those of us who really enjoyed films such as Cyrus and Jeff Who Lives at Home, both written and directed by the brothers Duplass Jay and Mark, may have been very excited when we saw the trailer for Safety Not Guaranteed.

A mere year after the release of the critically panned Vampires Suck, director Craig Moss (Bad Ass, The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It) weighs in with his direct-to-DVD spoof of the Twilight saga, Breaking Wind. This film struck me as being a celluloid version of that knock-knock joke. You know the one that goes knock-knock (who’s there?) I eat mop (I eat mop who?) HA HA! Yeah, Breaking Wind is a little like that joke: moronic, scatological, and kinda funny!
“YOU’RE MY BOY BLUE!”
The hilarious 2003 comedy Old School is now available on Blu-ray for the first time ever! Now you can enjoy the “unrated” comedic story starring Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn and more in high definition.
It was 1996, and Michael J. Fox had left television for movies. His career was waning, and it seemed like he was going to be relegated to lesser, direct-to-video releases. In comes Gary Goldberg and DreamWorks with a new television series. This series was Spin City, and it aired on ABC Tuesday nights. Spin City: The Complete First Season was recently released on DVD and collects the entire first season, including the pilot onto DVD.
Spin City was about the deputy mayor of New York City, and his day to day life where he practically ran the city under a pretty much incompetent mayor, and wacky staff.
“Prototype”: Pilot – City Hall has to deal with a garbage strike going on, and an insensitive comment that the mayor makes toward gay people.
Baywatch was popular, but not funny. Son of the Beach was funny, but not popular. Ok, it wasn’t really funny, but it was produced by Howard Stern when he had his massive legion of fans. Son of the beach aired from 2000 to 2002 on FX, and garnered an audience large enough to keep it on the air on a cable network. Son of the Beach: Volume Two is out now on DVD.
Son of the Beach is a Baywatch parody that deals with the day to day life of Notch Johnson, the head lifeguard of the beaches of Malibu Adjacent, and his staff.
”Grand Prix”: Head Lifeguard Notch Johnson must uphold the honor of all of America by defeating
”Witness for the Prostitution”: Notch Johnson is being honored by having a building named after him at the local University, but he senses that something is of at the university’s sorority house.
The Foot Fist Way is a 2008 low-budget comedy film directed by Jody Hill and starring Danny R. McBride. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s production company, Gary Sanchez Productions, picked up distribution rights to the film and hoped for it to achieve a Napoleon Dynamite-like success. It premiered in 2006 at The Los Angeles Film Festival and was screened at Sundance that same year.
