Frozen is a bit childish, but that's OK

'Frozen' is purposeful

By Ryan Syrek
There’s a joke about how a dude will like his new “sled” because “it’s got cupholders.” Oh, Frozen, you so hawt.

You say you want a revolution?

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' strikes back

By Ryan Syrek
With a female protagonist, overt racial themes and a wonderfully literal “poor versus the poor while the rich look on” centerpiece, Catching Fire is the best science-fiction sequel since The Empire Strikes Back and is far more important.

Bad advice

'The Counselor' is Cormac-whacked

By Ryan Syrek
Featuring an all-star cast of irreproachable actors ... and also Cameron Diaz, The Counselor had Ridley Scott at the helm and an original screenplay written by Cormac McCarthy.

WikiDribbles

Grindhouse ground out

'Machete Kills' and no one cares

By Ryan Syrek
Before we go further, you should know I gave Ticked-Off Trannies with Knives a positive review, so I “get” grind-schlock. This isn’t that, this is someone doing a bad impression of that.
