Reviews

nightcrawler-featured

Go see Nightcrawler.

The first of many reviews this week, Nightcrawler is an incredibly entertaining descent into madness that Jake Gyllenhaal portrays masterfully.

What week would be complete without The Walking Dead? Read last week’s recap/review before tonight’s episode as we finally saw what happened to Beth with a nice side episode that introduced a whole new group of survivors and their love of lollipops.

This week’s South Park was the definition of playing it safe by choosing a topic that everyone agrees with then doing nothing interesting with it.

What do you do when you’ve recorded yourself having sex, only to find out it backed up to the cloud? Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz find out in the hilarious movie Sex Tape.
