9 Years of Sin: The Failure of “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) Movie Review “There Are More Sins than Virtues Committed in this Film”

I re-watched the first “Sin City” twice before seeing this new one. The original is still a very well made albeit violent comic book thriller that had a few flaws but still was an overall good movie. With plenty more stories to adapt from Frank Miller’s works of “Sin City” a sequel would be an… Read More Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) Movie Review “There Are More Sins than Virtues Committed in this Film”

The Expendables 3 (2014) Movie Review “The Series is Starting to Run Out of Ammo”

Who doesn’t love a good 1980s action movie? With the cheesy one liners and glorious glamorized bloody violence, the 80s was the time pure masculine testosterone filled excitement.

First it was going to get made, then it wasn’t. Audiences got dealt the subpar CGI animated film “TMNT” in 2007.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001) Movie Review “A Magical Adventure”

There are so many young adult book to movie adaptation out there that it’s easy to forget where it all started. . Now “Divergent” has come out on Blu-Ray and “The Giver” just got released this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to go back to where it all started. “Harry Potter”… Read More Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001) Movie Review “A Magical Adventure”

The Purge: Anarchy (2014) Movie Review “A Refinement Over It’s Predecessor”

I said in my “Dawn of the Planet of Apes” review that quote, “In the great history of sequels it is shown that it can be difficult to be as good as if not better than your predecessor .” I proceeded to name off a number of classic sequels that could be included on that… Read More The Purge: Anarchy (2014) Movie Review “A Refinement Over It’s Predecessor”
