‘Sponge Out of Water’ makes a splash

New ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ movie surprisingly fun

I have never made any secret of my affinity for movies aimed at kids. While I might try to argue that the level of sophistication for these films has increased significantly in recent years, the truth is that I’m ultimately just a kid at heart.

‘Get In Trouble’ is superb short fiction

Collection features nine outstanding stories

The blurring of lines in fiction has led to many such discoveries for me in recent years. The subversion of standard genre tropes in the service of literary fiction has proven fascinating as it has picked up steam; slipstream fiction and magical realism and the like have gone far in erasing much of the stigma attached to so-called genre fiction.

Failure to launch - ‘Jupiter Ascending’

Wachowskis’ space opera a narrative mess

Filmmakers Andy and Lana Wachowski have become polarizing figures in the film industry ever since the massive breakout success of “The Matrix” back in 1999. In the eyes of many, the work the duo has been producing over the subsequent decade-plus has been a sequence of ever-diminishing returns.

‘This Is What You Just Put in Your Mouth’

New book takes a look at the listed ingredients

Once upon a time, it was fairly easy to keep track of just what we were putting into our bodies. The things that we ate and drank and used on an everyday basis tended to be locally sourced, coming from fairly close to home. So we knew what was what.

Angry Quaid

Over the years, this space has spent time discussing hundreds of different celebrities. We’ve had a lot of fun at their expense, sharing the myriad weird and ridiculous things that famous people say and do.

However, there are a few celebs that hold a particularly special place in our Celebrity Slamming hearts. For whatever reason, they consistently behave in a manner that makes them ripe for the picking, hence bringing joy to us all.

‘The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins’ a visceral satire

Since he first shot to literary fame with his 1993 novel “Trainspotting,” Irvine Welsh has been shining a light on the weird and wayward. Outsiders and outliers populate his pages, serving to comment on the state of contemporary society through their uniquely cracked lenses.

‘Project Almanac’ can’t find its way

Found-footage time travel film lacks consistency
