Robin Hood Review

You remember that movie the Ridley Scott Directed that had Russell Crowe in it?  That movie Gladiator?  Well, if you don’t, go see Robin Hood.  You’ll get the idea.  Ok, it’s not that it’s so bad, becuase it isn’t.  It’s just that Robin Hood is the same kind of movie.  It’s a big, Hollywood period epic with all the same kind of ingredients just put together in a slightly different way.

Survival of the Dead Review

You’d think that the guy who pretty much invented the zombie genre as we know it today would make a decent zombie film, especially since it is part of his own series of films.  Yeah, not so much.  Survival of the Dead may actually be referring to the people in the audience.  Brain dead with boredom.

Splice Review

It’s been a while since we had a smart sci-fi horror film.  You know, one that isn’t just a hack n’slash gore film in the guise of a science fiction premise.  The last great science fiction film I saw was Moon, last summer.  Now, although I think that is better, Splice is definitely a smart sci-fi film made for an adult audience.  No, please don’t take your kids to this one. 

Jonah Hex Review

You know, this movie has plenty of style, production value, and relevance for a comic book movie…IF IT WERE 1995.  Unfortunately, for 2010, it is cheesy, and not in the ironic way, full of bad one-liners and a completely uninteresting script.  Does anyone even know who Jonah Hex is?  What could the percentage be of comic book nerds that not only know this character, but are also big fans champing at the bit for a movie version?

Cyrus Review

Who could properly handle a script about a divorced man that falls for a woman who has a 21 year old son that is WAY to close to her?  You know, one of those mother/son relationships where she breast fed him until he was, like, five?  Weird, right?  And the son doesn’t want this guy getting to his mom; he wants to drive him away.

Inception Review

Christopher Nolan is a genius.  There, I said it.  If The Dark Knight wasn’t enough proof, then his new film, Inception, will certainly confirm it.  They’ll be no tip-toeing around in this review, this movie is literally mind-blowing.  I’m guessing there are a lot of directors in Hollywood cursing Christopher Nolan right now.  They have an awful lot to live up to.

Valhalla Rising Review

Vikings are cool.  They kick lots of ass and they wear those awesome metal helmets with the horns on them.  I’d say it’s about time we had a good Viking movie, don’t you? I just don’t know if this is the one.  This is sort of a Viking movie that drops acid and it kicks in at the third act.

To Boldly Go: My First Star Trek Convention

Yeah, that’s right.  I’m a self-professed Nerd, Dork, whatever you wish to call it, and I’ve NEVER been to a Star Trek Convention – EVER.  Sure, I’ve been to ComiCon once; I got that under my belt, but this is the convention that supposedly has the Nerdiest of all Nerds.  The ones that live the show and movies in their everyday lives; the ones that even William Shatner himself told to “get a life!”  Yeah, he apologized later, but you get my point.

The Expendables Review

Hey, I’m a nice guy.  Ask anybody, they’ll tell you.  No, seriously, I’m the nicest guy I know – to a fault.  But I’m still a guy.  I like to hunker down with some beer and chips and watch stuff blow up real good.  This movie appeals to every single thing that makes a man, nice or not, a man.  What about this movie seemed bad?  I mean, really, this thing has some of the greatest action stars of the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s so far.
