‘London Has Fallen’ Down A Deep Hole (Movie Review)

I did not see this coming, but London Has Fallen proves to be the movie that shows what nuance Michael Bay can bring to his films by comparison. This generic and borderline offensive sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen is downright schlocky in the way it proposes to back up its $100 million budget with […]

‘Gods Of Egypt’ Goes All In On Goofiness (Movie Review)

To say Gods of Egypt is in a league of its own would be an understatement. This fantasy adventure, functioning as a combination of space opera an Ancient Egyptian mythology brought to life, is gloriously stupid in a way that should be fun-bad, but sadly becomes too repetitive to hold onto even that sort of […]

300: Rise of an Empire (Blu-ray Review)

It’s been way too long between the amount of time that has passed since 2007 when Warner Bros. brought Roman soldiers with unbelievably chiseled pecs and abs into our living rooms on our early adoption HDTV sets during the Red vs. Blu Wars (HD-DVD vs. Blu-ray).  Can you believe it has been that long and for […]

‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ Take You To The Theater Immediately (Movie Review)

It is amazing how things work sometimes. How To Train Your Dragon gets credit for being a sleeper success, as many were not thrilled by the marketing, but it ended up making big bucks and spawning a whole franchise (sequels, TV shows, etc.). I was actually quite intrigued by the trailers for the first film […]

Fly High And Soar Through The Heavens With ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ (Movie Review)

While I tend to be a very impatient fellow who’s always wanting something else as fast as it can be handed to me, there are some things worth the wait.  There are such things as the perfect film.  Lightning can surely strike the same place twice.  And for those reasons and so many more, that’s […]

‘300: Rise of an Empire’ Marches Onto Blu-ray June 24th

To say I had fun with 300: Rise of an Empire in the theater this past March is like saying gas prices used to be cheaper.  Hell yeah I had fun with this action baddie!  From Eva Green showing us her goods to the bloody battles we all come to love and adorn in the genre, this […]

300: Rise of an Empire – ‘300’ SUPER-SIZED! (Movie Review)

Thinking about this today, it’s been way too long hasn’t it?  I’m talking about of course the amount of time that has passed since 2007 when Warner Bros. brought Roman soldiers with unbelievably chiseled pecs and abs into our living rooms on our early adoption HDTV sets during the Red vs. Blu Wars (HD-DVD vs. […]

Stop the press!  I don’t care if it’s only a brief moment…word has it that Ashley Judd makes an appearance in Olympus Has Fallen and that’s good enough for me!  It warms my heart that she’s actually in a movie that’s critically reviewed as being okay because God I swear she has made more bad […]

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ And A 90s Action Movie Rises (Movie Review)

It is funny how some movies strike me differently than others, despite their similarities.  Olympus Has Fallen has all the jingoism, xenophobia, and silliness to match awful films like Red Dawn or Red Tails.  It is also cheap and ugly enough at times to match an awful film like A Good Day To Die Hard.  […]

This is not really a post of joy, but every year does see the release of films that are just not good.  I do not try to seek out these films, with the majority being ones that I did think could have redeemable elements, but that just wasn’t the case here.  This list contains what […]

Gerard Butler Rides Giants and Chases ‘Mavericks’

Chasing Mavericks is the kind of film that clearly has its heart in the right place.  I would not say that the story crashes like a wave onto the beach, because of its devotion to making its lead character a saint that can do no wrong, but it does suffer because it is so willing […]

Ralph Fiennes’ ‘Coriolanus’ + Modern Warfare

I am a fan of actor Ralph Fiennes.  I enjoy stories involving Greek tragedies.  And I tend to like films that reappropriate the works of Shakespeare in interesting ways.  I found the concept of having Ralph Fiennes star in his directorial debut of the Shakespeare tragedy Coriolanus, which has been set in modern times, despite […]

Lock And Load With ‘Machine Gun Preacher’

When I first heard the title and saw a poster for Machine Gun Preacher, I certainly got the wrong impression.  In the wake of films like Machete and Hobo with a Shotgun, I was definitely caught off guard by the very “grindhouse” nature of the film’s title.  Machine Gun Preacher is actually a fairly intense […]
