{TB Talks TV} True Detective Review: “Church In Ruins”

true-detectiveseason-2It’s fair to say that, for those of us who haven’t given up watching, this past episode of True Detective was the best so far. The reason for this was that finally the main story line clashed with genuine character moments, upping the ante for the audience in a way that it previously hadn’t.

{Reel Reviews} Pixels Film Review: Pac-Man Eats A Firetruck

pixels2Pixels may be met with a collective dread from both critics and Adam Sandler non-apologists worldwide, but I can say this in its defense: At no point during this movie does a deer urinate on Adam Sandler’s face. That alone qualifies Pixels as not the worst movie Adam Sandler has ever starred in.

{TB Talks TV} Under The Dome: “Caged”

under-the-domeIn this week’s episode of Under The Dome, we get to see just how much it has become Invasion of the Body Snatchers. This episode mostly seems to be about showing the viewer who is and who not a pod person. We get to see vignettes from all of the freethinking citizens of Chester’s Mill and how they react to being the minority in town.

{REEL REVIEWS} Ant-Man Film Review: Making Marvels Out Of Anthills

ant-man-ant-man-marvel-pictures-release-michael Up until now, Marvel’s cinematic heroes have been all about growing bigger. Whether it’s turning green and hulking out, or a serum giving Steve Rogers a muscled Captain America body, or Tony Stark upgrading to a giant Iron Man suit, there seems to be only one direction superhero movies goes. Not anymore. Ant-Man gives us our first look at a hero who grows smaller, and the results could not be more refreshing…

{REEL REVIEWS} Minions Film Review: Of Bananas And Bananas

minions
Post-apocalyptic and world-disaster movies have it all wrong. The end of the world isn’t going to come from nuclear warfare, or gas shortages, and it’s definitely not going to be taken over by Skynet. No, the most likely culprits to bring us to our doom will be the squishy, yellow, gibberish-speaking creatures known as Minions.

{REEL REVIEWS} Ted 2 Film Review: Bear-Able

ted2
As hilarious as the juxtaposition of a child’s teddy bear that curses and smokes pot is, one feature-length movie pushed the limits of substance in Ted’s stuffing. But it was a financial success, which may explain the existence of the sequel the world wasn’t exactly clamoring for. Or at least, a sequel anyone needed.

{REEL REVIEWS} Inside Out Film Review: Rollercoaster Of Emotions

Inside Out works spectacularly as not only a movie that kids will enjoy, but adults as well. And that is the best kind of kids’ movie there is: children can enjoy the movie as is now, but as they grow older the movie will continue to cement itself in their hearts.

{REEL REVIEWS} Jurassic World Film Review: More Teeth Than A Dentist’s Wastebasket

There’s plenty of satisfying mayhem and chomping on display in this newest attraction called Jurassic World, and not quite enough interesting story or character. Still, it should provide enough entertainment to the average dinosaur-interested viewer.
