A Million Ways to Die in the West film review

Let us just say that edgy huckster Seth MacFarlane and his irreverent western romp A Million Ways to Die in the West will not make the legendary Mel Brooks or his iconic Blazing Saddles lose sleep anytime soon. Sure, MacFarlane is not anything to sneeze at given his off-the-cuff wackiness for pop cultural ditties that include television’s naughty animated treats Family Guy and American Dad. Plus, MacFarlane was the warped soul responsible for the R-rated roguish teddy bear with the H…

Blended film review

There are so many guarantees that we count on during our lifetime that we can set our expectations without question. For instance, outrageous national unemployment rates in a fickle economy. The Chicago Cubs not needing any extra battling for the preparation of the post-season playoffs in October. The latest pop culture interruption involving a Kardashian-oriented news-making update. And yes…another excruciating release of an uninspired and off-kilter Adam Sandler vehicle where fratboy fri…
