Review: Tammy

PLOT: After her entire life ruined in the span of a few hours, former fast food employee Tammy decides on a whim to leave her town, and entire life, behind. However, she's forced to take her alcoholic grandmother along for the ride. REVIEW: I'm genuinely unsure how to feel about Melissa McCarthy at this point. For a little while there, I thought her over-the-top pratfalls...

Melissa McCarthy is living in a Gangsta's Paradise in the trailer for Tammy

As soon as I saw the teaser for TAMMY, I knew that somewhere out there in the movie blogsphere that someone would reference “ Shia LaBeouf ”. You’ll understand why after you see it.

If you're like me, then you're still playing catch up on a lot of the Oscar contenders that you may have missed in theaters (I'm down to LES MISERABLES and LIFE OF PI).  Since the studios jam pack the Oscar contenders in the Fall/Winter in order to capitalize on the Academy Awards, most viewers end up short on catching them all.  Now, two of the better nominated films are hitting...

JFK assassination film 'Parkland' adds Rory Cochrane to its giant cast

The assassination of John F. Kennedy was an incredibly tragic event and I don't think you can properly understand the impact it had on the people of America (and the rest of the world) unless you were alive during that period.
