Kick Ass 2 (2013) Movie Review “Kick Ass 2…Still Kicking Ass! (forgive the pun please)”

When the first “Kick Ass” (2010) came out, I really didn’t think much of it. The trailers certainly looked good and I read great things about the comics, which it was based off of.

Translating books into film hasn’t always been met with success. Some have been made into masterpieces such as “Lord of the Rings” and some have been great (Harry Potter and Hunger Games), while others have been solid but not incredible movies (Narnia). Then there have been some films that have been pretty bad. Percy Jackson… Read More Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013) Movie Review “Lots of flaws, and Never Delivers on It’s Potential but at the End of the Day, Entertainment”

The Hangover Part II (2011) Movie Review “Revisiting these Great Characters and a Good Dose of Laughs Saves this Lazy and Predictable Sequel”

Comedy is a genre where in most cases, sequels fail. More than any other genre, comedy sequels have been incredibly hard to pull off. Even horror films have had better success with sequels.

The Hangover (2009) Movie Review “A Great Fresh Comedy With Fun, Likeable, and Hilarious Characters”

With the genre of comedy, it seems increasingly difficult to come up with something that feels “new”.

The Wolverine (2013) Movie Review “Even with an Awful Final Act, This is the Wolverine Film We Wanted, One with Surprising Depth”

The “X-Men” series has certainly shared its ups and downs. It cannot be underestimated how important the first “X-Men” (2000) movie was. That was the film that really started “The Golden Age” of comic book movies that we are still presently in today.
