Screener Squad: Unfrosted

Unfrosted Movie Review

UNFROSTED MOVIE REVIEW

Jerry Seinfeld presents Unfrosted, his feature length directorial debut that offers a fictionalized account of 1963 Michigan business rivals Kellogg’s and Post competing to create a crusted fruit pastry that could change breakfast forever. This is the origin of the Pop Tart. Told as though it were as important and as dramatic as the space race, this absurdist comedy features dozens of cameos from Seinfeld’s comedic friends, several of his vintage cars, and even several true facts about the legendary breakfast tart. Kimberly, Mike, and T.C. discuss their cereal allegiances, appreciation for Jerry’s comedic sensibilities, and his career obsession with cereal. And as dramatic the rift is between Kellogg’s and Post, it turns out there may be a growing rift among the Screener Squad on which cereal brand is best. Spoons have been drawn. A line of milk separates the trio. Where will you land on this battlefield?

Kimberly Brown (Highly Suspect Reviews)

Kimberly wants to live in a world filled with blue telephone boxes, speedsters, and ice dragons but through an ironic twist of fate, she’s stuck in this reality where these wondrous things only exist on page or film. Kim’s perpetual desire to consume sci-fi and fantasy media as a teen led her to the study of illustration/design at university to better understand its creation. Currently an Austin transplant, when she’s not wearing her critic hat you can find her pretending to like hiking, fielding questions about her hair or maybe even enjoying a local brew at the nearest dive bar.

 

 

Mike J. McAllister (Screener Squad, Staff Writer, Head Video Editor)

Mike J. McAllister is a filmmaker, editor, writer and animator. He is also a film junkie, dog lover and Surge-aholic (Hi, Mike). He grew up in a small town in Western Pennsylvania, where he earned the reputation as the “human IMDb” and was on a first-name basis with every video store clerk in town. He later studied film in Pittsburgh. He has since written several unproduced screenplays and TV pilots. He has also produced a number of short films, some of which have appeared in festivals across the country. He is a ninja with Final Cut Pro and is armed with a mind full of mostly useless pop-culture trivia. He also enjoys animation, MST3K, classic video games and being the “music geek” among his friends (which really just means he buys vinyl and listens to music that doesn’t come from an anime soundtrack). He resides in Austin, Texas, and can be followed on the Instamagrams at @ohheyitsmikejm.
