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.

The Last Exorcism Review

I can’t remember the last film I saw that was really good until about the last six minutes.  Oh, wait, THIS one.  Yes, really.  I was hoping for sort of an Exorcist for this generation, what I got was a cliched verse from a Satanic Metal song.  But not as rocking.  And it’s a real shame this time, because The Last Exorcism had a lot going for it.

Machete Review

Robert Rodriguez’s Machete might be the best thing to happen to Mexicans in film in a long time.  Or the worst thing, depending on your sense of humor.  It is, however, one of the summer’s most fun movies without a doubt.  No, I still liked Piranha 3-D better, but this is still up there.  With its’ over the top violence, retro 70’s flavor, and all star cast that plays along; for my pesos, it’s hard to go wrong.
