Sometimes you are just in the mood for crass, obnoxious and offensive toilet humour with very little redeeming quality than it appealing to the most immature part of your funny bone. When this is the case, you could do a lot … Continue reading Review Bonanza: Sausage Party (2016) Review
Superheroes are ridiculous. The concept is silly, the ideas usually stupid and most ridiculous of them all is The Batman. Not only is he a man dressed as a bat using his wealth to fight crime: he does this very … Continue reading The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Review
A lot of actors try their best to avid being type-cast. They go their whole careers being known for one particular type of role and then find it difficult to do anything else. Actors like Michael Cera, Vince Vaughn and Vin … Continue reading Is being type-cast a bad thing?

Michael Cera is seriously typecast. He is an actor that suffers from his own success. Films like Superbad, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist and Juno, have sealed his fate as the likable, sweet and vulnerable “boy-next-door.” He’s done very little to destroy this image and unfortunately it seems like his career is beginning to suffer because of it.

He does seem to play the usual “Michael Cera” character, hopeless with the girls but sweet and likable, but this time with a Jekyll and … Continue reading Youth in Revolt (2009) Review
