Grandma's Boy
Grandma's Boy (2006)
14 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.

It Follows
It Follows (2015)

½

A slow-burning and self-aware horror feature that is a breath of fresh air to the jump-scare fodder that infests theatres and Netflix queues today. While not totally exempt from cliche horror tropes, "It Follows" brilliantly paces itself to allow the proper amount of confusion and fear needed to break the audience, instead of overloading on graphic violence or jumps that trick ones into being scared.
