Cutting Room for February 8

  • If you’re a child of the 1990s, the phrase “Snootchie bootchies” doesn’t necessarily sound like the demented ramblings of a man with a massive head wound. The signature catch phrase of Jay from the beloved/loathed duo of Jay and Silent Bob will be uttered once more, as their creator, Kevin Smith, intends on resurrecting them for Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie. Of course, the...

Snow Action Movie

The Grey

Like a giant, shovel-nosed Irish caterpillar, Liam Neeson has emerged from his late-career cocoon as a crowd-pleasing, ass-kicking action-movie butterfly.
