Welcome to the Third Annual Groucho Awards! This is my own platform to nominate and award the movies of my choosing, because it seems that far too often, the movies with the biggest campaigns get Oscar nominations and the little guys are left out in the cold. This year Read more

I was not going to write about The Bachelor, but then...

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith

Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises

Posted on by The Wise Guise in Faith, Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 3 Comments

Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises. Even though we do not talk at length or detail about many of the plot twists and turns, we do discuss the ultimate conclusion of the story. If you want to read thoughts from us BEFORE we saw the movie, you’ll want to go here.

We just haven’t known what to write yet.  To some extent, we still don’t.  We both absolutely loved the movie. Although we weren’t together at the midnight premiere like we were for The Dark Knight, we chatted before while waiting in our seats and we chatted at 3:15 a.m. as we each drove home in Memphis and Nashville.  We decided we needed to process it more before attempting to write a review.

Movie Review: The Intouchables

Posted on by Warner Russell in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | Leave a comment

Not many people are going to see this movie, and that makes me sad. Sure it’s already the 3rd most viewed movie of all time in France, but your average American is not going to see it on their Flixster app and think that a French dramedy with English subtitles sounds like a film worthy of two of their summer hours. And chances are, since it’s a French film, they won’t see it on their Flixster app at all. Instead they will see the typical summer blockbusters unless they routinely check the movies playing at their local art house cinema.

But they should see this movie. I say this with 100% confidence.

Movie Review: Rock of Ages

Posted on by Warner Russell in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 1 Comment

Musicals are supposed to be hokey, right?

Rock of Ages is hokey. But I went in knowing that it would be, so I prepared myself accordingly. I can’t say that I wasn’t entertained by the film or that there weren’t moments that were heartwarming and/or made me smile. Read more
