Looking away from "A Series of Unfortunate Events" is the last thing anyone should do when watching this hilariously bizarre and witty adaptation of Daniel Handler's (also known as Lemony Snicket's) book series.
Each week on the SCOback Movie of the Week, we'll feature and review one must-watch throwback film. Stay up to date with the selected film every week to be immersed in some awesome old movies.
Much like the Boss's (Bruce Springsteen's) famous concerts, his new autobiography Born to Run runs a little over time. The book serves as a guide to the prolific singer/songwriter's life, and is a must-read for any Springsteen fan or 20th century music aficionado, but the lengthy descriptions of his inspiration and medical health are a bit much.
Hidden Figures, the story of three African American women that helped put the first man on the moon, is a powerful movie that shows the strength of many African Americans in the face of the adversity. It's a beautifully done, emotional movie that tells a story that everyone should know.
Will Smith fans may have been eager to hear that he would be acting in a new movie, Collateral Beauty. However, half an hour into the film and Collateral Beauty seemed like a never-ending story heading nowhere.Collateral Beauty is a modern-day "Christmas Carol" without the feeling of wanting to watch it over again.
In this age of tired remakes and reboots, it's easy to be cynical. Popular franchises (I'm looking at you, The Hobbit) release low-quality, uninspired hogwash to trick dedicated viewers into paying money for movies they don't need.But, Rogue One proved to be different.
This week on SCO Yummy, we're talking all about bread.
J.K. Rowling has done it again with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.This cinematically breathtaking film has impressive special effects, a consistently visually appealing color scheme, imaginatively detailed beasts and a multitude of magical landscapes.
The Disney princess franchise hits the mark again with "Moana", the story of a chief's daughter (not a princess), Moana (Auli'i Cravalho), who takes an adventure on the sea with the company of a shape-shifting demigod, Maui (Dwayne Johnson), and an irritating but lovably dim witted rooster to save the world from complete ecological destruction (pretty standard, as Disney films go). Though the plot may drag a little, "Moana" is a heartfelt and exciting movie for all.
Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg's new VH1 cooking show "Potluck Dinner" premiered Monday, inciting laughter and hunger in viewers. Their numerous celebrity guests employ overt marijuana innuendos, references to one another's checkered pasts, and hysterical contrasts between different cultures to keep the show funny and fresh.
Doctor Strange takes the very familiar story line of foolish pride, followed by the inevitable action that brings his success to a sad end, that you don't have to know the Dr. Strange comics to be able to figure out. However, this film provides enough mind-bending effects, humor, and good acting to keep this movie fresh in a time of formulaic, "tried and true" superhero movies.
With October 31 lurking just around the corner, it is now time to prepare for my favorite holiday. Although decorating houses, carving pumpkins, following people around at night dressed like a clown and choosing which candy to give out are all fun, the best activity is a Halloween movie marathon.
In The Magnificent Coloring World Tour, Chance the Rapper took the audience on an emotional journey through his music by featuring songs from all three of his mixtapes, as well as his joint album with The Social Experiment in a concert experience that can't be forgotten.
Despite a talented cast and a compelling premise, The Infiltrator is an overall let-down. With too little exposition and too many moving parts, the movie is difficult to follow. A strong lead performance by Bryan Cranston, who plays undercover agent Robert Mazur, is not enough to overcome the vague plot and the many seemingly repetitive scenes.
With heart-stopping suspense and an intriguing climax, "The Shallows" brings many beachgoers' fear of sharks alive. The survival film includes many action-packed moments and is a modern-day 'Jaws,' woman versus nature (in the form of a gargantuan great white shark) thriller that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats with its riveting plot and detailed graphics.
Announced in 2013, Finding Dory truly lived up to the high expectations set by the well-lovedFinding Nemo, with central themes of familial love and never giving up. Childish humor, suspenseful moments and tear-jerking scenes make this movie a must see for audiences young and old.
We all love Chipotle's burrito bowls, Santucci's artisan sandwiches and Subway's fresh footlongs, but there are some places across the street that stay hidden in the shadows of those Four Corners staples. We pass by Four Corners every day before school, after school, and during school (just kidding, because we have closed lunch, of course!), yet somehow we ignore the independent eateries just a short walk away.
