Reviews of movies from my giant DVD tower, and more.

The Big Year (2011)

Owen Wilson, Steve Martin, and Jack Black have themselves a big year…but what exactly is a big year? And why do they need binoculars to see it?

Fun with Buckaroo Banzai

Jump in your Ford jet car and travel back with me to 1984, and have some fun with one of the screwiest sci-fi comedies you’ll ever see.

It All Came True (1940)

Ann Sheridan and Humphrey Bogart star in this combination of comedy, romance, crime, and musical, directed by Lewis Seiler and co-starring Fanto the Hopping Dog.

Cavegirl (1985)

What happens when a high school schmuck travels back in time and hooks up with the prettiest girl the Stone Age has to offer? Seriously, you don’t want to know.

That Man from Rio (1964)

A fun adventure-comedy from France starring Jean-Paul Belmondo as a man searching for his kidnapped fiancé and a trio of valuable figurines.

The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942)

Merry Christmas, Monolithians! And to make your holiday weekend a bit brighter, I’ve placed this witty and fast-paced comedy gem in your stocking! Ho Ho Ho!

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai (1984)

One of my favorite comedies of all time, an irreverent and demented sci-fi adventure starring Peter Weller as Banzai and John Lithgow as the evil Lord Whorfin.
