There is no Secret Ingredient


I’ve had enough of these found footage films. The Blair Witch project came out a decade and a half ago, and it doesn’t really hold up. So why are we still riding the trend it started? I’m not a horror fan, so correct me if I don’t understand the horror community, but I can’t imagine that they are still excited about this genre.

That last Paranormal Activity was the most underwhelming in the series, and recent movies like The Conjuring and The Purge, which are decidedly not found footage, ...

Marv: "That right there is a dame to kill for". Okay this movie was hated by the critics and it floped at the box office, and I don't see why to be honest. Some of the new stories were good and some of the new stories were pretty dull. Eva Green story was pretty forgettable and the movie ended not on a strong note. The Visual's this time are a lot better and it's good to see the characters from the first movie make a small return. Joseph Gordon-Levitt story was short but I still enjoyed it, eve...

Part Three is 'Expendable'


'The Expendables' series has begun to show wear. With the strong improvement of the second film, it was a disappointment to witness the decline in this third outing. It offers the least exciting bang, thus far. Most of the action isn't all that stimulating. It opens with a couple of decent short bouts and leaves the few cool moments for a so-so finale, with a long stretch of slight boredom in-between. There's a strong sense of going through the usual motions this time around. It has a non...

More 'Sin' to Be Had


Stylistically, 'A Dame To Kill For' is every bit similar to the first 'Sin City'. To say that you are getting more of the same is true. The visuals, violence, and heavy noir are still strongly at play. I enjoyed most all the actors. Rourke steals the show as Marv, again. Gordon-Levitt, Boothe, and Green are the other standouts. The film is brought down by it's slow pace and collection of stories that aren't as entertaining as the ones in the previous film. Part of that is due to writer/c...

'What If' is a formidable, and very formulaic, romantic comedy. Radcliffe and Kazan are wonderful together. That's the main positive here. Their bonding is believable. It has random dialogue and slapstick situations worth some laughs. It's an easygoing, pleasant watch. I have few qualms with the film, as a whole. I only wish it wasn't so schmaltzy and predictable.

Good, but definitely overrated movie is too goofy to be taken seriously and not funny enough to be an all out classic comedy. The tone issues run throughout the movie, with the comedy winning out most of the time. This leaves decent, but nothing special action sequences enhanced by excellent state of the art special effects. The characters are fun, but a talking raccoon, genetically altered or not, makes this more for kids and teenagers than adults.

Matthew Brady - wrote on 08/24/14

"Dude we f''king cops". The story is about a pair of friends dress up as cops for a costume party - and soon unintentionally become the hit of the neighborhood. But when these fake cops finds themselves against a very real threat, they will have to decide how far they are willing to go to uphold their law. When I first saw the trailer to this movie I thought it look pretty funny. After seeing the movie I thought it was okay. The story is new and interesting and seeing these two have m...

A Wonderment of Silliness


Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is a wonderment of silly; A Grand Canyon of silliness if you will. How can a movie that’s tone is so serious be so deeply dumb? I laughed more during this flick then I did at some comedies I saw this year.

Not that I’m complaining, not really. I think the silliness is less a fault and more a feature. Michael Rodriguez, one of the directors, has often tried to recapture the ridiculous fun of classic Hollywood b-movies, often with mixed results, and I think tha...

"We're just like Kevin Bacon."


Going into this movie, I had no idea what to expect. I had never heard of these heroes before, and I had little to no expertise based on the trailers and footage I have seen. I saw these footages, and I thought to myself, "This is either the greatest idea ever put to film, or the stupidest thing I've ever seen". However, I decided to turn my analytical brain off, and I give the benefit of the doubt.

In many respects, “Guardians,” directed and co-written by James Gunn, and starring...

Well done. Good action scenes. Classic love story. Some unbelievable parts, 2 rather outrageous scenarios. But overall entertaining, a good message for young adults.
