‘Geostorm’ Has Fallen (Movie Review)

Much like The Perfect Storm, sometimes a cog in the Hollywood moviemaking machine comes up with a decision to have two reasonably entertaining ideas collide. In the case of Geostorm, to freshen up the idea of a massive storm destroying cities, a convoluted plot to assonate the president by controlling the weather was developed. This […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Seven New Indie Titles

This is quite a wonderful week for indie flicks indeed.  Not only are there films across all genres, but there are TWO five-star films on the list that are also in full contention for my Top Ten Films of 2017.  (Viva the lush The Lure and cool Catfight!)  Mermaids with mayhem in mind, gals with […]

RoboCop – 2014 (Blu-ray Review)

It’s the reboot that seemed an interesting but dangerous venture.  The original Paul Verhoven classic is damn near as perfect a movie as you can get.  As unnecessary as the reboot sounded, interesting names kept popping into it.  At the outset, this was a Darren Aronofsky project, but he exited.  Even the eventual director Jose […]

‘Robocop’ Fails Its Prime Directive (Movie Review)

There is a reason why robots, cyborgs, and similar devices have gotten a lot of attention in science fiction over the years.  The idea of man creating a machine and what that could mean for life is an intriguing concept that can play on both the positives and negatives of the scenario.  Taking it further […]

Good Cop, Bad Cop(s), Robocop (Movie Review)

Going into this screening last night I was fearful of only one thing.  Please God!  Don’t let this be a horrible remake like 2012’s Total Recall.  Despite the beauty of Kate Beckinsale in it, life is too precious and short for something of that immeasurable quality.  So here we are and there’s really no way […]

Comic-Con 2013: Sony & Screen Gems Panel

Sony Pictures had a big day on Friday at San Diego Comic Con this year, mainly due to the debut of footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the panel that went along with it (an article on that can be found HERE).  With that said, there were plenty of other exciting things going on […]

Seven Psychopaths Don’t Take Any Shih Tzu on Blu-ray

Wow!  What can I say about this flick that hasn’t been said before?  It was as the Boss would put it a “Brilliant Disguise.”  More importantly, this is the screenwriting flick for all ambitious writers out there to learn, live and study from for all eternity.  I really can’t say enough good things about this […]

A Snow White Shih Tzu And The ‘Seven Psychopaths’

There is no way around this, so I am just going to get it out of the way now.  One, I loved Seven Psychopaths and I believe it to be one of the best films of the year.  Two, I can easily see how not everyone will love this movie the same way I do.  […]

And on the Seventh Day God Created ‘Seven Psychopaths’ (Movie Review)

Wow!  What can I possibly say that fellow staffer Aaron Neuwirth is not going to mention in his extensive review of Seven Psychopaths?  Well, for starters, this film is brilliant.  Pull away the many layers and what you obviously have is a masterfully crafted screenplay by the film’s co-producer and director, Martin McDonagh.  I guess […]

Sucker Punch (Blu-ray Review)

Since the film’s theatrical release, it has been very interesting to hear everyone’s thoughts on Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.  I have people in my life that very much opposed the film, going as far to say its subject matter is an abomination of the screenplay format, and others like me who can’t wait to view […]

Don’t Get “Sucker Punched” Into Buying a Ticket!

Leading up to the film’s release it has been very interesting to hear everyone’s thoughts on Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.  I have people in my life that very much oppose the film, going as far to say its subject matter is an abomination of the screenplay format, and others like me who can’t wait to […]

‘Sucker Punch’ Aims High, But Is Really A Low Blow

So this movie was a big sandbox of ideas, ambition, and disappointment.  In terms of editing, style, and structure, watching Sucker Punch was like watching a day’s worth of programming on MTV, crammed into a long, two hour movie.  It begins early with a couple music videos; it then gives us shallow, underdeveloped, yet beautiful […]

Trashy Thriller Plot Narrows ‘Limitless’ Potential

Limitless is based around the notion of a myth and a “what if” question.  The myth involves the idea that people only use about 10% of their brains.  This film asks the question – what if you could take a pill that would open up the rest of your mind.  What follows is a story […]

I’m A “Sucker” For These Girls

Warner Brothers has released a bounty of  really cool theatrical posters of their big budget picture Sucker Punch which is due in theaters on March 25th.  What’s to say that hasn’t already been said?  The film is directed by Zach Snyder of Watchmen and 300 fame and stars a bevy of hot chicks whose name(s) […]

Comic-Con 2010: Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch, the title of Watchmen‘s Zack Snyder’s newest upcoming film, was a surprise hit in my Comic-Con 2010 itinerary diary.  I immensely enjoyed the trailer, which was played two times for us.  It looked like a cross between a mythical/fantasy adventure and 300, with women in the starring role.  And what would Sucker Punch […]
