God’s lonely men

We need to talk about ‘Taxi Driver’

By Michael J. Casey
For most, Taxi Driver is summed up by one of the most famous lines in cinema: “You talking to me?” Conveying masculinity and bravado, it readies angry men for battle. But it is misleading. It is an act, a fašade. The truth is found in the line that follows: “Well, I’m the only one here.”

On her own terms

Amy Schumer sets Hollywood in her sights with ‘Trainwreck’

By Michael J. Casey
Amy Schumer is not your average anything by a long shot. The 34-year-old stand-up comic turned TV show writer, director and lead actress is now making her way to the big screen as screenwriter and star in Trainwreck, opening everywhere July 17. The entertainment business is anything but easy or kind, but Schumer is tackling it on her own terms and to quote Charlie Kane, “Those are the only terms anybody every knows.”

Hocus poking

‘Magic Mike XXL’ is an ode to the dry hump

By Ryan Syrek
The film then becomes a road trip movie without any adversity at all. They crash a car, but then immediately wind up at the mansion of a kind divorcee (Andie MacDowell) who loans them a ridiculously expensive convertible. They lose their announcing MC, Tobias (Gabriel Iglesias), but pick up an even better one, Rome (Jada Pinkett Smith).

Emotion motion

‘Inside Out’ is busy, breezy and (kinda) blah

By Ryan Syrek
My second set of questions: So logic doesn’t exist in this world? I understand this is a kid’s movie but “you are a creature ruled solely by your basic emotions” is a horrifying message. Why go to school if you never apply knowledge and you just emotionally react to stuff?.

Hot dino-on-dino action

‘Jurassic World’ is what you wanted

By Ryan Syrek
Hand a kid two dinosaur toys. Said kid will not use them to contemplate evolutionary biology. Said kid will smash the two of them together, simulating an epic dino-smackdown while emitting a likely annoying reptilian howl. Jurassic World is that but with a $150 million budget. Director Colin Trevorrow went from quirky indie Safety Not Guaranteed to blockbuster franchise revival faster than you can ask, “How many zeroes are on that check again?” Those hoping Trevorrow managed to retain the light, whimsical, creative tone of his former effort should remember this is a movie about dinosaurs eating people. When it comes to people eating, Jurassic World does it better than most.
