My Dino Bone Christmas Gift: 20 Mini-Reviews Of All The Junk I’ve Seen Lately

christmas 2015 00 header

I like to give back to our readers here, so I thought I’d give you the gift of 20 mini reviews of all of the movies from 2015 that I’ve seen over the last few months, but haven’t reviewed yet.  I got majorly backlogged with movies to write reviews for, and if I don’t do it now all at once, I know I’ll never do it.

So if your Uncle Tony starts to get a little *too* opinionated on Muslim refugees while you’re waiting for Christmas dinner; pull out this list, zone out, and ignore the (now) screaming match that he and your dad have surely gotten into while your grandma begs them to “Stop it, boys!  It’s Christmaaaaaaas!“.

Who’s More Desperate For Your Laughs: Pixels vs. Trainwreck


I’ve seen two comedies in theaters recently, Pixels and Trainwreck, both with pretty different ‘tudes of comedy style.  Since you probably don’t want to pay $37 TWICE for you and your loved one to see a movie with $10 popcorn and a half-gallon of soda (that’s just the medium size, full gallon upgrade for $0.50 more), I’ll try to answer as many questions from this bold, ominous voice as I can in order to help you pick between the two.

Movie Review:: Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

anchorman2 1

It’s kind of hard to write a fleshed-out review of Anchorman 2, as comedy is subjective, and that’s especially the case with a comedy sequel.  More so, this is also a film that isn’t so hysterically funny that I’m struggling to type correctly because my stomach is still convulsing with laughter, nor is it a bad comedy that is so terrible that I want to belittle the writers and actors for doing such a horrible job.

Lazy Movie Review:: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug


Premise:  Bilbo and the dwarves are back for another adventure!  Woo hoo!  This time they try to answer the important question: What has Orlando Bloom been up to since the last time we saw him?  My guess was that he’s was in Lord of the Rings 10 years ago, then he was in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies after that, and somewhere in the middle he was in that one movie with a terrible name that no one saw, Elizabethtown.  The real answer to that question (after looking him up on Wikipedia) is he’s been in almost twenty movies since Return of the King, 90% of which I’ve never heard of.  I don’t know why I decided to bring down Orlando Bloom to start this off, I wasn’t planning on it, it just sort of happened.  Anyway, it’s nice to see Legolas again.
