… Go see this movie. I’m not joking! Go see this movie! You have to see this shit! This is 127 minutes of pure beautiful insanity on screen and I enjoyed every glorious second. Oh the movie is not good. It definitely is not good on a technical level. But my God, the fact that it is so bad makes it even more glorious. This is the A Winter’s Tale of 2015, After Earth of 2015, this movie is pure insanity!
Maybe I am being a little too harsh though by comparing it to A Winter’s Tale or After Earth. After all, those movies were inept but so damn inept that you had no choice but to laugh at it. This movie does have some rather artistic merit to it. Not only does it look pretty, there is amazement in every scene. I’m not even going to hide the fact that I had a blast watching this movie for all the right and the wrong reasons. This movie is the culmination of watching a good bad movie that still has enough tact behind it to not make you feel dirty after sitting through it. It is the kind of good bad movie that everyone can enjoy. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Jupiter Ascending”
A week back, when I was finishing my cheesy romance month, Free App Maven critic Shaila Meeker, my co-host of the Nerdiest Talk Show on Earth Brandon Lias, and soon to be frat bro/little brother to Shaila, DJ Meeker sat me down and together we ‘watched’ three movies. One of which was Just Go With It which I reviewed last week starring one person I cannot stand Adam Sandler and the second was The Ugly Truth starring Gerard Butler another not-favorite of mine (and one we will get to later). The third is the movie we will be talking about today. It is a movie I said I would never see, Channing Tatum’s ode to his late teenage years, Magic Mike. That night wasn’t fun for me, but let’s talk about Magic Mike. At the time of its release, I wrote this movie off as something that just wasn’t for me. A fun, romantic comedy centered around some machismo eye candy. Not my style, but I can see the appeal. After nearly a year of people claiming the movie to be well done, I gave in and sat down to give it a watch. After it was all over, it was surprisingly the best movie of the night.

I return back to my regular reviewing schedule and I return to it with one of the most irregular movies I have seen in recent years. Based off the short film Jay and Seth versus the Apocalypse, This is the End is one of the most surprisingly bizarrely amazing movies that I have ever seen. I do not know how else to put it. It is a movie about a group comprised of Seth Rogan, Jay Baruchal, and several A-List actors portraying themselves as they meet face to face with the actual Biblical Apocalypse. How else can I describe this movie other than ‘surprisingly bizarrely amazing’? Continue reading “Tanner Reviews This is the End”
