Review: Get Hard

The worst criticism a film can get is "harmless." When a film is just "harmless," it's stale, voiceless, and generally fails to make a lasting impression. A harmless film exists, takes 90-100 minutes of your life, and then yo...

Get Hard trailer with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart is... actually funny

Both Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart can be really funny guys, but the second I heard about Get Hard I figured I'd be driving the other way. It looked like a dumb film playing on all the wrong racial stereotypes just pull l...

Will Ferrell gets hard in the first trailer for Get Hard

So folks still like Kevin Hart? I'm not going to fault him for making money off a bunch of cheap comedies, but there's something particularly troublesome about his latest project with Will Ferrell, Get Hard. This first trail...

Anchorman 2 getting R-rated re-release

It appears that when we all went out to the theaters to see Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues we weren't getting the legit version of the film. You know the one that was rated R and had all the bad words in it. That movi...

Review: Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues photo
Review: Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
by Nick Valdez

There's a lot riding on Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Years of home video releases and endless quoting have transformed the first Anchorman into an unyielding comedic juggernaut. When Anchorman 2 was first announced, I was surprised by how much I had been looking forward to it. Seriously, I honestly had no idea I'd be chomping at the bit for this. I've always tried to be as level headed as I can when a movie gets a sequel, but for some reason, I was trapped in a glass case of emotion. 

With most comedy sequels failing to grasp at why its predecessor was successful, it's natural to assume Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues would crash and burn as it loses the uniqueness that made it a cult classic (I'm sure the relentless, seemingly desperate advertisement tirade Ferrell has been on didn't help matters). You can argue how necessary or not this sequel is all day, but you'd be missing something important. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is damn funny. You'd be hard pressed to find a more hilarious film this year.

Nick's Flixmas: Elf

Now it may be to early to call Elf a Christmas classic, but it's still has been ten years. I figure that's a good enough wait period. Elf is one of those films that you have to watch at least once every year like I do. Now it...

Paramount interested in a PG Anchorman spin-off

I am utterly gobsmacked that someone is planning a family-friendly Anchorman spin-off. No, really! Your calendar isn't wrong! It is not April 1st. It is the middle of November, and yet I can't help but feel someone decided to...
