Ancient History: Jurassic Park vs The Mummy (1999)

Jurassic Park vs The Mummy

When it comes to people going too far in their pursuit of knowledge (and money) leading to ancient predators being unleashed upon the world that they need to then stop, Jurassic Park is nowhere near as good as The Mummy (1999, obviously). I tear into Jurassic Park much how a dinosaur should have torn into Dr. Hammond's awful grandchildren.

All in the Family: August: Osage County vs Home for the Holidays

August Osage County vs Home for the Holidays

Instead of fighting with someone in your own family, watch fake families fight each other for your entertainment this holiday season! I get into the highly dysfunctional families of August: Osage County and Home for the Holidays and explain why I watch Queen Holly Hunter in Home for the Holidays every single Thanksgiving.

May-December: The Graduate vs Adore

The Graduate vs Adore

This week’s episode features two movies focusing on a May-December romance with hot older ladies and whiny young boys — it’s The Graduate vs Adore. I have a LOT to say about both and if I can get even one person to watch Adore, I’ll feel I’ve done my part.

The Nice Guys: Forrest Gump vs Blast from the Past

Toil and Trouble: Hocus Pocus vs Halloweentown

Hocus Pocus vs Halloweentown

In honor of Halloween, I’m talking about two groups of PG Disney witches — it’s Hocus Pocus vs Halloweentown. I’m hoping all the Halloweentown fans come out of the woodwork to talk to me about Debbie Reynolds, Judith Hoag’s denim jacket, and why we can all still remember Sophie’s spell. I also defend Sarah Jessica Parker and explain why Vinessa Shaw is the best part of Hocus Pocus.

Price of Fame: A Star is Born vs Country Strong

A Star is Born 2018 vs Country Strong

Enjoy my rageful comparison of 2 movies about aging country singers with substance abuse problems, the hot young star they take under their wing, and the price of fame — it’s A Star is Born vs Country Strong. Spoiler alert: I HATED A Star is Born. I love the legend known as Gwyneth Paltrow. I welcome arguments about my opinions, I’m ready and raring to go in defending my Bradley Cooper rage.

Peer Pressure: A Clockwork Orange vs The Stepford Wives

A Clockwork Orange vs The Stepford Wives 2004

This week’s comparison features two movies that reflect on the state of society and free will - it’s A Clockwork Orange vs The Stepford Wives (2004). Stanley Kubrick’s 80 hour so-called masterpiece is a dark future world of ultraviolence, while The Stepford Wives is a hilarious satire that follows Nicole Kidman’s entry into an idyllic town straight out of Leave It To Beaver. These movies are shockingly similar in how they deal with conformity, control, and what it means to be a human.
