Do you have to be high in order to laugh here? No, but for a whole lot of this movie it sure feels that way. It’s really too bad MacFarlane relies so much on the weed breaks he slots so often in this movie. Not only do they slow the fun, they feel repetitive and lazy. And, as we have seen in so much of his work, when MacFarlane tries, he really can deliver some very funny and, as is his signature, topically targeted stuff.
There’s no real way to prepare yourself for the flat out marvel of Inside Out, the Pixar release that not only revives the studio’s legacy, but the whole concept of family entertainment. Yes, this gorgeously animated story is based on the lives of the innermost emotions of an 11 year old girl, but its keen perceptions, astonishing concept and goofy humor make this a movie that will dazzle viewers of any age.
Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
You sure get your bang for the buck with this one. Tom Cruise, as durable on screen as any movie star could be, and his team deliver an action packed espionage thriller that’s so eye popping you hardly notice you have no idea of why they’re really doing all that stuff.
Perhaps the funniest thing about this silly sequel is the shock and horror some are expressing in its wake. I’m not saying I didn’t cringe watching some of the stuff that happens in this movie; I’m also not saying I didn’t laugh out loud a few times, too.

This week we review "Kingsman: The Secret Service" directed by Matthew Vaughn, starring Colin Firth, Samuel Jackson and relative newcomer Taron Egerton. So here we are, the first movie of the year based on a comic book. Action, adventure, comedy and Colin Firth kicking some major arse. Tune in this Sunday as we review the film Matthew Vaughn turned down X-Men Days of Future Past to direct.
From IMDB:A spy organization recruits an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.
Boys will be boys. You were expecting Shakespeare, maybe? Melissa McCarthy in the role she and we have been waiting for.
