Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween (film review by Frank Ochieng)

For those so-called devoted Tyler Perry fans out there wondering why it took so long to bring back their favorite sassy gun-toting grandma after a two-plus year absence from the big screen can feel some relief that America’s acerbically gray-haired Queen of Quirkiness has arrived for her latest holiday-themed shtick (following the humbug dud known […]

A Haunted House 2 (film review by Frank Ochieng).

We needed the insipid horror-comedy ‘A Haunted House 2′ much like a porcupine needs an insulin needle to poke somebody in the gut. Nevertheless, this flaccid frightfest of so-called cheap chuckles is the sequel to the inexplicably modest successful ‘A Haunted House’ where the throwaway satire made for tired silliness and shock.

Garant and Lennon, known for their cockeyed collaboration on the consistently amusing ‘Reno 911!’ (along with its film counterpart), arbitrarily mesh together the ingredients of gore and […]

Scary Movie 5 (Frank’s Take) (film review).

Quite honestly, we needed another ‘Scary Movie installment much like an aging shaggy dog needs to open up his own flea-infested hotel. Still, it did not stop the powers-that-be to cram another random and pointless sequel down the throats of moviegoers at the box office. Sure, one can make an argument that the reason behind […]
