Road Trip
Teen sex farce meets teen gross-out comedy, which I suppose makes this a sexy movie for gross teens, or vice versa. All I know is that guys are strongly advised...

Film Review  May 19, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...All I know is that guys are strongly advised to avoid this on a first date. Road Trip gleefully combines the cruder elements of the Farrelly Brothers films with an almost surreal dose of testosterone; it's an film with a serious case of arrested development..."

Toros Rugged Road Trip
DAILY Sports  March 20, 2008, by Matt Moore
"...And the road trip started so well, too. After a promising 2-0 start to their six-game road trip, including an impressive 105-102 win over the D-League-leading Idaho Stampede, the Toros promptly decided they'd had enough of that comfy lead atop their division, and have dropped four straight. The players had expressed concern to me over heading to Albuquerque for a four-game stretch..."

Film Review  February 16, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...Ostensibly a road movie, the highway that Vernon's film travels is much closer to Michael Landon's heaven-bound one than the more traditional Hollywood variety, and, despite its wacky-mobster trappings (co-star Rossi will be recognized by fans of that other recent mob comedy Analyze This), the film's blatantly non-secular tone is almost certain to turn off anyone who arrives in search of a De Niro-esque pastiche. “It's a trip! Buckle your seatbelt!” advises the film's tagline, and in some respects, it's right -- it is a trip, though the chipper tone and heartstring-yanking premise are unlikely to require any sort of emotional shoulder harness..."

The Merry Hempsters Hit the Road
In 2001, actor and activist Woody Harrelson rang friend and filmmaker Ron Mann up and invited him to tag along on an environmental whistle-stop trip in a hemp-fueled bus -- "The Organic Living Tour." Two years later, Mann's digital video-shot doc Go Further is all but in the can.
Screens Story  March 7, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...Toronto-based documentary filmmaker Ron Mann was in the midst of a project on Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, the Cali car-culture king and granddaddy of the outlaw surf-and-hot-rod scene, when his old pal Woody Harrelson rang him up and invited him to tag along on an environmental whistle-stop bus trip from Seattle on down California's pristine Pacific Coast Highway in a hemp-fueled bus -- "The Organic Living Tour." That was in 2001. Two years later, Mann's digital video-shot doc Go Further is all but in the can ("I'm literally working 20-hour days to get it ready for the South by Southwest screening," he sighs)...."

Mad Max: Fury Road
Glorious action cinema abounds on Fury Road
starstarstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  May 15, 2015, by Marc Savlov
"...There’s damage aplenty: metal damage, brain damage, and enough practical, non-CGI, vehicular and pyro gags to make Stunt Rock feel like Goodnight Moon. Miller and his editors Jason Ballentine and Margaret Sixel continue the series’ editorial aesthetic of under-cranking specific shots, making the most viciously hyperstylized moments appear stuttery and surreal, like a glorious bad dream, or a trip down the bad-acid rabbit hole..."

Man on a Mission: Richard Garriott's Road to the Stars
This film is a behind-the-scenes document of Richard Garriott's quest to be the first second-generation astronaut in space and the actual journey.
starstarstar
Film Review  January 20, 2012, by Kimberley Jones
"...But while Man on a Mission doesn’t precisely neuter Garriott’s weirder ways, it does push them aside for a more boilerplate message of the father/son bond. (Curiously, the film includes a clip from The Colbert Report in which Stephen Colbert signs off from the interview with “good luck getting my DNA to space" – a cryptic aside for anyone not already in the know that the comedian was referencing a Garriott campaign for which he gathered DNA material to take on the trip with him..."

Eurotrip
A kinder, gentler teen sex comedy?
starstar
Film Review  February 20, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Scott Mechlowicz, Jacob Pitts, Michelle Trachtenberg, Vinnie Jones, Jessica Boehrs and Travis Wester. Does Jam/Style Council frontman Paul Weller know that his classic ode to British mod malaise "In the City" is being used as a musical cue in a giddy American teen sex romp? And wouldn’t a tune by Oasis’ Gallagher brothers have been more appropriate? ("Fuckin’ in the Bushes" would’ve been aces, had not Guy Ritchie already nailed it to the climactic fight scene in Snatch.) Eurotrip, from the producing team who brought us 2000’s Road Trip, or as I like to call it Tom Green’s 14th Minute and 59th Second, mines much of the same material as its predecessor, with one major difference: Whereas the Todd Phillips-directed prequel (of sorts) was lewd, crude, and occasionally as comically nasty as discovering a stray pubic hair in your grandmother’s mouth – yeah, that nasty – Eurotrip is helmed by fledgling director Schaffer, who opts for a little sweetness and light instead of the usual fart jokes and rutting..."

"...Still, the film feels withdrawn in places where it might have been most engaged, and merely dramatic where it could have been conclusively devastating.
