Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

'Movies Like Bad Grandpa': 'Awful Role Models' Comedy Movies

Movies in the vein of 'School of Rock': featuring less than adequately equipped, typically uncertified adults placed in positions of authority over groups of children. Well, that makes it sound a bit grimmer than it is. Of course they all have hearts of gold really!

'Movies like Perks of Being a Wallflower': Indie Kids Growing Up

Modern movies in the vein of 'Charlie Bartlett' or 'Rushmore': coming-of-age comedies with an independent feel to them. Watch these quirky youths becoming quirky young adults (who will, we can only assume, eventually become quirky senior-citizens)!

'New York, New York': An Allen-Esque View of NYC

A bunch of 21st century, Allen-esque indies that follow neurotic, aimless, and verbose New Yorkers, as they chase equally neurotic (inevitably white) love interests around the tree-lined streets of Brooklyn. Quite a different picture than you'd get from a Spike Lee.

'Movies Like The Heat': Melissa McCarthy Comedy

In the headlines once again for recent release 'The Boss', Melissa McCarthy never fails to amuse. Enjoy this collection of her leading comedic roles. A rising comedienne to watch for!

Bill Murray Comedy

Bill Murray got his start on Saturday Night Live, but really made a name for himself in the 80s with slapstick comedies like 'Meatballs', 'Caddyshack', 'Ghostbusters', and, of course, 'Groundhog Day'. For something a little more recent make sure to check out 2014 dramedy 'St. Vincent', co-starring Melissa McCarthy and Naomi Watts!

'Bitterest of the Sweet': Best Modern Dramedy

For those not familiar with the term, this collection offers the very best dramatic comedy modern cinema has to offer: including Paul Giamatti in 'Sideways', Paul Giamatii in 'Win Win', Paul Giamatti in 'American Splendor'... wait a minute

Bill Murray Movies

Murray has been a comedic fixture in Hollywood from the 1970s, and with recent hit 'St. Vincent' he doesn't show any signs of stopping. Make sure you have a bottle of water handy because humor doesn't get drier than Murray, particularly if Wes Anderson gets involved.

Best Comedy Movies 2014

2014: probably best remembered as the year a comedy movie nearly started nuclear war with North Korea, but there was so much more! Make sure to check out 'They Came Together' for a hilarious spoof on the RomCom genre!

Best Drama Movies 2014

From cynical Irish social dramedy 'Calvary' to frankly stressful character study 'Whiplash', 2014 was a great year for drama. Feel free to use this list as a springboard for why you loved/ hated 'Boyhood'!
