REVIEW: That’s My Boy [2012]

“Secret tickle time” Just when you thought Adam Sandler had hit bottom and could only improve upon a lackluster string of film’s that have to make you question the quality of his earlier gems, he proves it can always get worse. From Sean Anders (the director of Sex Drive) and David Caspe (creator of “Happy […]

FILM MARATHON: Schrembs’ Spotlight Series #1: Armed and Dangerous [1986]

The Schrembs’ Spotlight Series Premise: In recent years, I have made a conscious effort to try and improve upon the quality of movies I watch on a week-to-week basis.

REVIEW: Reign Over Me [2007]

“Can we get Chinese now?” Love hurts. That, I think, is the main message Mike Binder’s newest film Reign Over Me brings across. Whether that love has caused your relationship to become stagnant, or has brought anger from the one you love cheating for years, or has broken your heart to the point of being […]
