Fighting…

I’m always in the movie for a good brawler movie. Not just a marital arts movie, but a brawler. Not as polished, just raw and in your face. So when Fighting came out, I certainly took notice of it. Not enough notice to go see it in the theater, but…

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard…

The Goods is the latest comedy of the summer. It serves its purpose to make you laugh, but fails in being memorable. The movie’s bread and butter is the outrageous, however when not outrageous the Goods ain’t so good. It’s more acceptably decent than good. In fact the only scene…

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra…

G.I. Joe has a fond place in my heart. Growing up I loved the toys and loved the cartoon. G.I Joe, Transformers, and M.A.S.K were the three cartoon staples of my childhood. So it was with jaded and skeptic anticipation as I waited for the release of G.I. Joe: Rise…

The Hurt Locker…

I can not think of movie in recent memory that simultaneously glamorizes and repulses the viewer about its subject matter more than The Hurt Locker. But The Hurt Locker does just that with it's portrayal of US Army Bomb Technician Staff Sergeant William James. At first glance it's all the…

What I learned from The International?

1) Banks are evil They do not care who they do business with, as long as they can controll the debt. That includes organized crime, established first world governments, dictators, rebel forces, or whoever. 2) Interpol is powerless Clive Owen never carried a gun and was never allowed to arrest…

DOA: Dead or Alive…

Based off of the video game series, DOA is another so so video game movie. I have played many iterations of the game, but have never payed attention to the story line, but really how complicated can it be? The movie has the DOA tournament commencing, all the fighters get…

Star Trek…

This was the movie I was most looking forward too this summer season. But it didn’t start out that way; the marketing campaign was straight up phenomenal. I have watched that third trailer over 100 times. I almost skipped work on Friday to go see a morning showing, even though…

Adventureland…

Finally getting around to writing this review, I saw it when it original came out in the beginning of April. Adventure land is the coming of age based on the life Greg Mottola, the director of this little film. The Mottal based character, James (Jesse Eisenberg), is a recent college…

X-Men Origins: Wolverine…

I’ll keep this short. The movie sucked. It’s somewhat enjoyable while watching, but afterwards it’s utterly forgettable. It feels like the fisher price version of Wolverine. The writers seem to have removed his balls, as he is a complete pussy here. Reportedly it cost 140 million; I have no idea…
