Ghost in the Shell
48 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

All style and little substance as scribes Jonathan Herman and Jamie Moss strip down and neuter their source material, going from the high concept, philosophical cult narrative to a more familiar and boring plot. While it's viscerally impressive with solid direction and performances, anyone looking for a honorable live action send up of the 1995 anime will be sorely disappointed.

Grandma's Boy
Grandma's Boy (2006)
20 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Where some low-brow comedies attempt to thinly plaster emotion over a wall of crude humor, "Grandma's Boy" gently applies it to create a wonderful mural of contrasting tones (Stoner-shit talking goofs and the unconditional love of family). Is this a ridiculous flick with sophomoric humor that's heavy on cheap laughs? Absolutely, but it is one with plenty of genuine heart in their characters (especially from Alex, Samantha, and Lilly) to have a little of everything in a viewing experience.
