Dumb And Dumber To

Why We’re Hyped: The Farrelly Brothers, Jim Carey, and Jeff Daniels would only do the film if everyone was involved.

Why We’re Worried: When’s the last time the Farrelly Brothers made a good movie? Will Jim Carrey alienate half of his audience on Twitter – again?

The Expendables 3

Why We’re Hyped: Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Kelsey Grammer join the ridiculous cast for another go at...

'Kick-Ass 2': Not As Good As The Original

August 19th, 2013 11:15pm EDT
Kick-Ass 2
DIY real-world teen crime fighter Kick-Ass is back in Kick-Ass 2 and though fans of the first film may line up around the block to see this film, chances are they will be disappointed. Directed by newcomer Jeff Wadlow, the sequel brings in star power from Jim Carrey this time around as opposed to Nicolas Cage and doubles down on the violence with an unexpected streak of nastiness. Yes, Chloe Grace Moretz is still the scene stealer, Mindy Macready’s Hit-Girl, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson is Kick-Ass, but the film suffers from a case of sequelitis. A lot of familiar faces are back along with chea...

Review: Second Helping Of 'Kick-Ass 2' Satisfies

August 15th, 2013 3:00pm EDT
Kick-Ass 2
Sequels are always tough sell, but follow-ups to cult flicks might as well have a bull’s eye attached.  In the case of the new "Kick-Ass 2" there is such a target but fortunately most of the characters, story and action hit the mark just right.  The result is a flick that stays right on par with its predecessor in terms of tone and entertainment value and gives fans of the original exactly what they crave – more of the same.

Young Dave Lizewski aka Kick-Ass is at a crossroads.  He’s been missing in the crime-fighting superhero scene, so he decides to get back in the game by enlisting the h...
