So, as most Comedy Film Nerds fans know…I LOVE horror movies! I try to see almost every one that comes out (unless they have truly horrible word of mouth) and as we get closer to October, that need for cinematic scares grows even more urgent. So why have I been avoiding seeing the new James Wan frightfest Insidious: Chapter 2?Details
Ok, I’m not a parent, but for those of your that are, imagine your kid goes out to play and when you expect them back, they aren’t there. In fact, they are no where to be found. Gone. No idea where they are, how long they’ve been missing, not a trace….How would you feel? What lengths would you go to in order to get answers?Details
If you haven’t seen the first Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs don’t worry, the opening of this sequel gives a full run-down of it. Wow. How lazy can writers be? I’m surprised a voice-over didn’t start the segment with, “Previously on Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs…”Details
Everybody likes to be pleasantly surprised. And these days, with the horror genre, it’s especially enjoyable. That sounds weird, to be really happy when a movie that involves bloody gruesome deaths is involved. Well, weird for those that don’t like horror movies, anyway.

The Way, Way Back... is way way awesome!
Groundbreaking? Not exactly, but there’s a reason that certain stories are well-trodden: Because we want to see them again and again. Meatballs is one of my favorite movies. Vintage Bill Murray from 1979. The Way, Way Back is basically the same story: Awkward boy, who nobody appreciates, comes-of-age one summer when he meets the coolest guy in the world, who inexplicably sees something great in him, and brings it out.Details
