Debt to Cinema 095: Detention (2011)

Its not everyday that a piece of media aims to de(con)struct the genre/subcategory it falls into, but of the last 20 years, most of the best satire has come from films of that ilk. Scream, Last Action Hero, Cabin in the Woods, Scott Pilgrim, and now Joseph Kahn’s crazy, fast, smorgasbord of the milennial high school experience cements weird is good and 90s nostalgia is better! #IdBuyThatForADollar

Debt to Cinema 061: Detroit Rock City

Remember those teen films from your childhood you couldn’t seem to get enough of? Just the title on the TV guide would get you excited. It didn’t matter where you tuned in, just being in the presence of the characters made you feel a certain way. Well, despite how awesome the journey is here, this sadly is one of those films, but one however, that lost its luster along the nostalgia highway.
