By: Bill Leon (Three Beers) - The other day, I paid about 17 dollars (shipping and handling included) for a live concert VHS tape of Prince & The Revolution performing in 1985, a concert where they perform every track from the Purple Rain ‘soundtrack’ album. Purple Rain makes my dick ROCK. HARD. I am a Prince fan
By: Kingsley Crabtree (A Toast) - Let me preface this review by saying that I’m not religious. At all. Yet movies involving religion absolutely fascinate me. I’m talking cat-with-a-shiny-ball transfixed. Now… Get thee to a nunnery! More specifically, get thee to St. Katherine’s Roman Catholic Church in San Diego. Sister Act made me a believer; in badass nuns and lounge
By: Henry J. Fromage (Three Beers) – Greta Gerwig’s a fast-rising fresh face on the indie scene with impeccable delivery, while Whit Stillman crafted a reputation in the 90s as a writer/director who produced some of the wittiest scripts out there. Sounds like a match made in heaven, right?
By: The Cinephiliac (Four Beers) - As its title suggests, which translates into “The Miserable’s,” Les Misérables is the gloomy story of a group of unfortunate people introduced to audiences during a turbulent time, then killed off as if they were characters in a campy soap opera.

I tried to deny the immense awesomeness of the dancers, particularly the males, for as long as I could. Eventually my manly impulses failed me and in the end I proved Gloria Estefan right: the rhythm

Our hero (and I’ll explain why I call him this) is Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of the town of Halloween. Jack becomes bored of celebrating the dark, spooky, scary holiday of Halloween
By: Frankie B. (Two Beers) - This is a movie that I was pumped for from the first time that I was the trailer. I am a huge Workaholics fan, and it was awesome to see Adam DeVine from Workaholics getting a shot at the big screen. I also for whatever reason tend to
By: Jake Peroni (A Toast) - Once upon a time, cocaine and fashion walked hand in hand, ankles rang like churchbells in cascading bell bottoms, condoms were as scarce as unicorns, and most importantly, musicals were enjoyed by both girls AND boys alike. I’m talking of course about the 70′s.
By: BabyRuth (Three Beers) - Sparkle is the big-screen acting debut of an American Idol winner with clichéd dialogue and forgettable musical performances.
By: David Lynch’s Dog (Six Pack) - Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to 1988. There’s no musical spin-off, no movie spin-off of the musical spin-off, no Zac Efron with Elvis Presley hair (damn shame, ladies… am I right?), no John Travolta in a fat suit. We’re talking the original Hairspray that started it all. A Toast Hairspray
