Time spent watching films, even crappy ones, is time well-spent.

    These aren't comments on ALL of the movies through which I've cried, yawned, laughed, and rolled my eyes, but just about everything I've seen since early 2002 is here plus a few from earlier. Post dates reflect my screening & parenthetical dates are the year of US release (aka Oscar eligibility).
    Yeah, a movie review blog isn't very original. But originality is overrated. Just ask Michael Bay.

Sausage Party (2016)

The food in the grocery store live in anticipation of being chosen by the gods (shoppers) to be taken to paradise (home to be devoured). Only when a jar of honey mustard is returned because it was bought in error do the products find out the truth: carnage awaits them on the other side of the glass doors.

It’s silly and fast-moving, but also pretty profane. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it makes the film a hard “R” which is bordering on insane for a film starring animated food.
