Tickled is a documentary on the surreal practice of professional tickling uncovered by David Farrier and Dylan Reeve. Imagine receiving an unsolicited email inviting you to participate in competitive, endurance tickling with the promise of free flights, five-star accommodation, and thousands of dollars.

★★★★½ Director: Drew Goddard   Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: a group of college kids decide to go on a fun getaway to a cabin in the woods except horrific, violent, and fatal events ensue. Of course the answer is yes, because it’s a premise that has been done a million times […]

★★★★★ Director: David Lynch   If Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Interstellar, and The Shining all went to a pre-school together, Mulholland Dr. would steal all their crayons and send the lot home in tears.

You do need a strong stomach for violence and a predictable plotline. The film follows the exploits of Mike Banning […]

★★★★ Directors: Anthony Russo & Joe Russo   While not as impressive or gripping as Captain America: Winter Soldier, the Russo brothers deliver a satisfying and fun followup to their first film. Filled with amazing action, mostly impressive characters, and thought provoking ideas, the brothers have made a film that balances out a plethora of […]

★★★★★ Director: Jon Favreau   We’ll start by saying that we grew up watching Walt Disney’s 1967 The Jungle Book every other week, so Jon Favreau had some big shoes to fill. The film follows the narrative of Rudyard Kipling’s 1894 novel, but breathes new life into the series, turning it into a fun, thoughtful, […]
