Kick-Ass (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

To say that I was not looking forward to the original April 16th theatrical release date of Kick-Ass would be like saying that I would rather watch a SD DVD of my favorite film over its superior HD counterpart.  It’s just not going to happen.  My obsession with this film happened way back on the […]

The Year of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” Continues In Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Movie Review)

First there was Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass in 2010 and then there was Kingsman: The Secret Service (Aaron Neuwirth’s review of it all here and mine) in 2014.  Needless to say I’m a big fan of both.   Now we have a September 22nd sequel titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  This is one film I can’t say […]

Kingsman The Secret Service Thrills and Titillates (Movie Review)

After last week’s dismal screening of Jupiter Ascending I was just about ready to write the remainder of this month off from both attending and reviewing movies.  My experience with that film was that bad.  I was embarrassed by that $175 million dollar effort, even though I really had nothing to do with it.  However, […]

Kick-Ass 2 Brings Out The Superhero In All Of Us (Movie Review)

The day is finally upon us.  A day that feels like it took forever to come.  Honestly, I was unsure if this day would ever happen, but the sequel to 2010’s Kick-Ass is finally here!!!  And it’s aptly named…Kick-Ass 2.  Well, let’s be honest.  They could have been a little more creative with that title, […]

‘Kick-Ass 2’ Not Quite As Hard Hitting (Movie Review)

Maybe one of the more unlikely comic properties to get a sequel, Kick-Ass was produced almost completely as an independent film, only to have its distribution rights bought and successfully turned into a big screen event.  Unfortunately, while the Comic Con and geek crowd showed up for Kick-Ass, the film did not turn into the […]

This April is Going to KICK-ASS!

Can you believe it?  We are now almost 3 months away from one of the biggest movies that will drop this year…KICK-ASS!  Yes, Avatar and Iron Man 2 may have been the talk of the town during Comic-Con 2009, but the real hidden gem that made it’s presence known with ferocity and comedic genius was […]

Comic-Con 2009 Update #16 – Kick Ass

The 6,000 seat capacity Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center was the location for the Kick-Ass discussion panel.  Yes I’m being serious and if the ‘me’ from two weeks ago is like most people out there, then we are on the same page in not having a clue what the rather blunt title […]
