‘Anchorman 2′ Review

There are a handful of extremely funny, laugh-out-loud moments in 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.' One happens early – the reveal that David Koechner now runs a cut-rate fast-food joint that saves money by serving fried bats (or, as he calls it, “chicken of the cave"). Another is a retread from the first film – a battle royale of news teams from various networks, but this time even more extreme. There's also great humor in what I suppose passes for “the point” of this movie – that lowest common denominator attitudes like those of Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy are what inadvertently invented the cesspool of modern cable news.

Of course, what you will find funny is entirely dependent on your own taste, but these highlighted scenes (and several others, I must point out) really landed with me. It struck me later, as I was trying to piece together why the movie felt about six hours long, that these moments were all dependent on gags that could not have been ad-libbed. Ferrell, Koechner, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and the rest of the gang are deservedly respected for their quick-thinking comedy chops. When they get together and riff, few can top them. The problem is that 'Anchorman 2' relies on this far, far too much. It's like a a dessert plate where mounds of fluffy whipped cream obscures the fact that, underneath, there's only a tiny bite of pie.

Batman: Arkham Origins Review

Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham games have been celebrated for finally giving gamers the one thing that eluded them for years: a good Batman game. After the success of Arkham City, Rocksteady moved on to other projects, leaving WB Montreal to take up the mantle. Instead of trying to solve the puzzle of where to take the Arkham series next, WB Montreal went back to the beginning. With Batman: Arkham Origins, we get to see a younger, unproven Batman take on many of his famous rogues for the very first time. It might have been a good idea if everything about Origins didn't feel so familiar.

It’s here, it’s really here! Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ has at long last premiered its pilot episode, bringing Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) back from his ‘Avengers’ fate to lead an entirely new team through weird and wonderful cases of the Marvel universe. We’ve spoken at length about measuring our expectations, as well as how the series will integrate with the larger Marvel movies, but how does the premiere ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot finally stack up? Is Marvel’s first live-action series a hit or miss?

The year 2013 has proven to be a very, very busy one for Metallica. From playing sold-out shows all across the globe to just a few nights ago rocking a packed house at the intimate and legendary Apollo Theater in New York City, the legendary metal band is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. This is most obvious in the simple fact that within the same week, they are celebrating the release of their first ever full-length feature film and its official soundtrack.

‘We’re the Millers’ Review

'We're the Millers' is a vexing film. It's just funny enough to keep from being truly bad, but too preposterous and predictable to be anything close to good. For every laugh there's something that will make you want to hurl an object at the screen. When it flubs, it flubs hard, allowing each of the four main characters a chance to embarrass themselves. And yet, if you wait 'til the next scene, there's the possibility that whoever just served up a would-be joke in a humiliating fashion will do something inspired. As such, 'We're the Millers' wins some respect for at least being a very odd moviegoing experience.
