Embrace This Wreck

'Wreck-it Ralph' is a blast [yay!]

Movie Reviews Maybe it’s the 1980s and 1990s nostalgia for vintage video games. Maybe it’s John C Reilly’s and Sarah Silverman’s terrific performances as Ralph and Vanellope.

Wanted: Unknown Singer-Songwriter

'Searching for Sugar Man' is quietly inviting [Yay!]

Movie Reviews It sounds like the idea for a bad movie: Talented musician no one cares about disappears. A small group of overseas fans, knowing nothing of his life, endeavors to find him.
