DVD Review: Dumb and Dumber To

Bring Harry and Lloyd home. Review by Brandon Wolfe Comedy sequels are a juice rarely worth the squeeze. You could count on one hand the number of comedic sequels that have matched or surpassed their predecessors with fingers left to spare. For whatever reason, recreating the unique magic of a successful comedy has proven historically difficult for Hollywood. At their worst, such sequels are carbon-copied exercises in laziness like the Hangover sequels, limply retracing the steps of what worked in the original film to vastly diminished success. Generally the best one can hope for from a comedy sequel is something like 22 Jump Street , which lacks the freshness and inspiration of the first film, but has just enough energy and new jokes to at least justify its existence. Given the disappointment-strewn battlefield of comedy sequelization, there was every reason in the world to be wary of, if not outright terrified by, the prospect of Dumb and Dumber To . After all, this isn’t j

Dumb and Dumber To Review: All Hail the Second Dumbing

November 2014 Movies on Our Radar

A fun-filled October leads us right into Oscar season, with several satisfying submissions. October 2014 offered a full plate of candy to those who knocked on its door, mixing bonified Oscar candidates with a few downright enjoyable releases. But it also kicked Hollywood out of its complacent August/September disasters with a collection of entertaining films like Gone Girl , Fury , and the very surprising John Wick . November arrives ready to erase the mistakes of months past, but it has a lot of weight to carry. Receipts for the year are down only 3.7% (according to our friends at BoxOfficeMojo.com), and with a few solid blockbusters this month, we think the year's mostly red-inked is about to turn decidedly favorable. Some of these appeared on our MOST ANTICIPATED LIST OF 2014 back in January, and we're certainly excited for their arrival. The month features militant penguins, an interstellar space traveler, two dumbasses, and three boss haters, all ready to gob
