The Last American Virgin:

The Last American Virgin by any standard initially comes off as your average 80’s teen movie about high schoolers trying to get laid. In fact the original poster showed the entire cast, all smiling 50’s-style, as they were ensconced in a pair of unzipping jeans. It’s not made clear whether the jeans belong to a guy or a girl, the point is that if you watch this movie jeans are going to be coming down. The poster also boasts songs from such bands as The Cars, Blondie, Devo, Journey, The Police, REO Speedwagon, Tommy Tutone, etc., so simply based on this soundtrack, The Last American Virgin could forever be enshrined in the halls of 80s, teen, moviedom.

However, once you watch the film it becomes apparent that The Last American Virgin is not your garden-variety teen film...

The King of Staten Island

The King of Staten Island

Pete Davidson plays Scott Carlin, a 24-year-old dude living in his mom’s basement in Staten Island. He hangs with his friends all day, has a sexual relationship with a girl named Kelsey (Powley) that he hides from their friends, and uses the people in his boring sphere as physical canvas for his dream of being a tattoo artist. One day, he meets a kid on a bench who asks for some ink. Ignoring his buddy Igor’s (Moises Arias) suggestions that tattooing a nine-year-old might be, well, a really bad idea, Scott ends up putting needle to skin and the kid screams his way home. Later that day, the boy’s father Ray (Burr) comes by to give Scott a piece of his mind and ends up meeting Scott’s mom, Margie (Tomei)...

15 Best Comedy Movies

15 Best Comedy Movies

Comedy films have long been a staple of American cinema. Though they were relevant throughout the early 1900s, they’ve become even more popular today. Because of this, we thought it was time to look at the greatest comedy films to date. To do this, we’ll be turning to the ranking system on Rotten Tomatoes.

The review aggregation website considers multiple factors when stacking up the best comedies: the year in which a film is released, the number of reviews it has, and the Tomatometer Score. The last of these — the Tomatometer Score — is most important; combing all the ratings from a wide range of reviews and criticism into one numeric tally. Combining all these factors earns a film the Adjusted Tomatometer Score, which is what we’ll be using to line up the best.

Braking for Whales

As the film opens, Star (Tammin Sursok, who co-wrote the film with director Sean McEwen) returns to her hometown in Iowa to reunite with younger brother Brandon (Tom Felton) on the occasion of their mother’s death. It doesn’t take very long for old resentments to simmer up between the two—she jabs at him for his unwillingness to admit that he is gay (he’s in the middle of a self-help program allegedly designed to make him heterosexual) and he retorts by bringing up her ramshackle lifestyle and the child that she has all but abandoned—by the time it comes to the reading of the will, they are ready to go their separate ways again, possibly for good...

Space Jam 2 Delayed Again

The coranavirus outbreak in the United States has already led to a barrage of movies getting delayed – and Space Jam 2 could be next. Space Jam 2 had been stuck in development hell for over two decades before it finally got moving last year, with those obstacles dating back to an early version of Space Jam 2 commissioned directly after the original Space Jam‘s 1996 release. That iteration of Space Jam 2 died once Michael Jordan refused to join the project. Other versions of Space Jam 2, including one titled Skate Jam which would’ve starred Tony Hawk, similarly went nowhere.

However, Space Jam 2 got brought back to life once legend LeBron James signed on to star on as himself in the lead role...

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Sonic the Hedgehog‘s release date of February 28 in China is officially delayed by Paramount, due to the mounting concerns over the coronavirus. The 2020 film is based on the extremely popular video game franchise produced by Sega. Sony Pictures tried to develop a film adaptation back in 2014 but was unsuccessful, and Paramount acquired the rights in 2017. The film stars Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as the voice of Sonic, along with James Marsden (Westworld) and Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty) as the villainous Dr. Ivo Robotnik/Dr. Eggman, Sonic’s arch nemesis.

The film got off to a rocky start after the first trailer received supremely negative reactions to Sonic’s design, and the film was delayed three months in order to fully redesign the character...

Beatles Movie: Yesterday

Beatles Movie: Yesterday

Beatles Movie: Yesterday

Danny Boyle’s Yesterday isn’t just about a world where The Beatles never existed. Called “a total joy of a film that cements Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis as master storytellers of our time,” the film explores the pursuit of fame through fresh eyes and a determined heart. Apparently, director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Richard Curtis sent the film to the surviving members of The Beatles. Spoiler alert: They loved it.

Wildly popular from the early 1960s onward, The Beatles is often considered one of the greatest bands of all time (if not the greatest). The band was comprised of four extremely talented, extremely well-known members: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Star (who was recently knighted)...
