Nerdland Movie Review 

A struggling actor (Paul Rudd) and his screenwriting roommate (Patton Oswalt) embark on an attention-grabbing journey through Los Angeles to become famous.
I came across the trailer for Nerdland a week ago and decided that it seemed funny enough to rent. Boy, was I right!
Not only is it funny but it’s also pretty weird. The kind of weird that borders on genius.
Make no mistake… this animated movie is NOT for the eyes of children. I repeat… it’s NOT FOR THE EYES OF CHILDREN!
Though, I’m pretty sure a large percentage of kids have already seen this movie.
If you like hilariously weird animated movies then you might enjoy watching Nerdland.

Batman: Assault On Arkham Movie Review 

I was genuinely surprised by this movie! It’s chock-full of DC Comics action!
Deadshot, Harley Quinn, King Shark, Captain Boomerang, Black Spider and Killer Frost make up Amanda Waller’s group of villains known as the Suicide Squad.
They are tasked with breaking into Arkham Asylum to recover vital information stolen by the Riddler. To ensure they do as they’re told, Waller has small explosive chips implanted in their necks. At the slightest hint of rebelliousness she can activate their chips remotely and blow their heads into a million pieces.
While they break into Arkham, Batman is preoccupied with trying to locate a dirty bomb that the Joker hid before being sent to Arkham.
You would think that having so many villains work together would be a terrible idea but for the most part they work well together. I guess the threat of death can be a very powerful motivator.
Once they get inside Arkham and locate the Riddler, they realize Amanda Waller has set them up to take the fall for something far more sinister.
The action sequences are really intricate and well thought out. I also like how accurately each villain is portrayed. I give a big thumbs up to each voice actor! They really gave it their all.

Sausage Party Movie Review 

Sausage Party is… hilarious but definitely not for kids. I think it barely passes as a suitable adult movie.
Seth Rogen voices Frank, a self aware sausage who eventually discovers that all food gets devoured by humans. Don’t worry that’s not a spoiler. The story itself is pretty straight forward but it also invokes themes of oppression and revolution.
Most of the jokes are pretty clever but they’re just a couple of steps above toilet humor. The whole time I was watching I couldn’t help but wonder how high Seth Rogen and his friends were when they wrote the script. Nevertheless, I laughed out loud many times. 
If you like movies that make you question reality and laugh at the same time then I recommend watching Sausage Party.
