Retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device.

‘Red 2’: Those Wacky Elderly Are At It Again (Movie Review)

A few years ago audiences were treated to RED, a film based off a not-very-well-known comic, which centered on the idea of a retired CIA agent getting back into action.  While the film was nothing like its comic counterpart, it got by on its playful sense of humor, fun cast, and the fact that it […]

Aaron, Brenna and Guest Reviewer Aaron Neuwirth take on this highly unusual romantic comedy. After a zombie epidemic, R recues Julie from a zombie attack. Seeing he is different, they become unlikely friends. But falling in love appears to transform R.

‘Warm Bodies’, Slow Corpses, Fun Movie (Movie Review)

It would seem highly unlikely that I would like a romantic comedy with a regular human girl and a hipster zombie as the romantic leads that are supposed to fall in love, but here we are.  Based on description alone, this seemed like a bad idea, but rather than dwell on being a sappy love […]

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Blu-ray Review)

Summer 2011 came and went like a thief in the night.  It is the Fall season (at least it’s approaching the Fall season), and one of Summer 2011’s flagship films is here on the Blu-ray format!  That film is Transformers: Dark of the Moon.  If you’re  a a fan of the first two films, then […]

Rounders (Blu-ray Review)

Wow, looks like it’s time to party like it’s 1999, I mean 1998, up in here!  Time really flies when you’re having fun.  It seems like yesterday when I was watching these two up-and-comers tackle the screen with an industry veteran.  The newbies were Matt Damon and some kid named Edward Norton.  The veteran was […]

Summer Officially Begins with Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Clear the theater, the heavyweight champ has arrived!  Transformers: Dark of the Moon returns just in time to remind us just what a Hollywood Blockbuster looks like after a summer of mediocrity.  Transformers: DOTM arrives in a tour de force, staying true to its cheesy comic relief, PG-13 language and sensuality, but delivering on action, […]

RED – Reasonable Elderly Delight

A decent action comedy that I feel is going to get more love from general audiences than I had for it.  I certainly enjoyed the movie overall, thanks to its casting and a couple of fun action scenes, but something about this film’s energy just did not hold up well throughout.  While based on a […]

‘Secretariat’ Wins the Triple Crown for Mediocre Disney Sports Films

The best way I can describe this film is “very Disney.”  It follows all the rules of the inspiring, Disney-produced, sports film, based on a true story.  You have a few underdogs, characters with determination, the wild card mentor character, the skeptical stand by characters, the arrogant former champions, and even a “magical negro character.”  […]

Comic-Con 2010: Summit Entertainment’s RED

In case you are in the dark like I was, RED stands for “Retired Extremely Dangerous.”  It’s kind of a fitting title for this coming of age ex-CIA action comedy vehicle.  The panel of actors, consisting of Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds), Helen Mirren and Karl Urban (Star Trek), sat down with writer Warren Ellis […]

Jonah Hex One Hot Mess

As special effects progressed and stories got more creative, the western became an increasingly difficult genre to sell to the general public.  Compared to 40 and 50 years ago, the days of cowboys and Indians on the big screen is pretty much non-existent.  How does one revive the category or even get one good film […]

Jonah Hex Gets Ugly in Ghost Rider 2

I first became interested in Jonah Hex last summer after seeing a sneak peak of several scenes at Warner Brothers’ Comic-Con panel (see here).  I have to admit; I have never read a single page of the DC Comics’ title.  So I guess you can say that I am a Jonah Hex virgin.  Sometimes that’s […]
