Under Review: ‘Puss in Boots’

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — Any fan of the “Shrek” franchise will probably admit the Puss in Boots character practically stole every scene he was in. So that said, a spin-off starring the boot wearing furball was a no-brainer. Set before the Shrek films, “Boots” delves into[...]

On the Set: ‘The Hangover Part II’

— by ALEXA MILAN — When I first saw “The Hangover” its opening weekend in 2009, I think I laughed harder than I’ve ever laughed in a movie theater. There were few moments in that film when I wasn’t at least smiling — the gang’s adventures with Mike Tys[...]

The Cure to ‘The Hangover’ — Join the Movement

— by MARIUSZ ZUBROWSKI — I, for one, am sick of hearing people quote “The Hangover” (i.e. “there’s a tiger in the bathroom”) and drone on about how incredibly “epic” it was. Although it may have been the most successful rated-R comedy in the history of man, the Todd Phillip[...]
