Welcome Back To The Cartoonishly Grim World Of ‘Sin City’ (Movie Review)

In 2005 I fell in love with Sin City.  While the worst thing that film may have given since us was the directional ambitions of the graphic novel’s creator Frank Miller (see don’t see: The Spirit), it had plenty else to offer.  Director Robert Rodriguez delivered an ambitious and visually stunning adaptation of a few books from the […]

Immortals (Blu-ray Review)

The beauty of director Tarsem Singh’s Greek Myth 3D action film, Immortals, is definitely the most interesting thing about it.  At 2011’s San Diego Comic Con, Tarsem, known for his work in music videos as well as his two previous films, The Cell and The Fall, made a point of noting that story comes after […]

Once Upon A Time In Mexico (Blu-ray Review)

In our previous adventures with our famed guitarista we had several revenge and closure story arcs to abide by.  With Once Upon A Time In Mexico we have come full circle.  Robert Rodriguez pulled a Sergio Leone.  This was to be Rodriguez’s The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Johnny Handsome (Blu-ray Review)

When this movie was released in 1989 it I don’t remember hearing about it and I’d never seen it until now.  At the time of this movie’s release, Mickey Rourke was near the beginning of his career freefall after a decade of hits.  After this movie failed, his rollercoaster career began which is a shame […]
