Lucy was released July 25 (despite the international released date of July 30 on the poster above), an actiony, sci-fi type movie from our old chum Luc Besson (The Professional, The Fifth Element) and starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, among others. The trailers have promised an action flick a step up from your average Summer action flick, and given the cast and director, who’s to disagree? So is Lucy mind-blowingly awesome, or mind-numbingly stupid?
The Purge: Anarchy is in theatres now, and expands on a lot of the ideas presented in the first film. The first film had some mixed reviews, but as Hollywood would have it, a sequel was made anyway. So how did it do? Is it a good sequel, or should it be hunted in the gardens?
Thanks to Weird Al’s #1 album ‘Mandatory Fun’, Weird Al fever is back, but not in a good way. There’s now a low budget porn parody of the 1989 Weird Al movie, ‘UHF’. Yes, Weird Al is a chick. Yes, it also includes porn parodies of the many shows within UHF such as “Wheel of Fish” and “Raul’s Wild Kingdom”.
