Review – The Raid 2

Take The Raid: Redemption, possibly the greatest action movie ever made, and add in a plot that is part The Godfather and part The Departed and you’ve got The Raid 2, without question the undisputed best action movie sequel ever. Well, until The Raid 3 arrives… For now, fans of the first installment can […]

Review – Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Combining the humor and wall to wall action of Marvel’s The Avengers with a plot that is both a throwback to a 70s spy thriller and a modern commentary on government privacy invasions, Captain America: The Winter Soldier emerges as the best Marvel Studios film to date. Marvel Studios films have stayed on the side […]

Review – Noah

NOAH Director: Darren Aronofsky Cast: Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, Douglas Booth, Anthony Hopkins, Leo McHugh Carroll, Nick Nolte Genre: Drama, Adventure Run Time: 140 mins “Survival at sea” movies seem to be making a comeback: over the last two years, we’ve seen Life of Pi and All is Lost, with Unbroken due later this […]

Review – Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher

For the continued excellence that is the Marvel Studios films, the animated movie wing is similarly consistent in its mediocrity. Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher easily maintains that not so proud tradition with another weak, uninspired effort that once again proves that if you want fun, exciting adventures featuring The Avengers your local theater […]

Review – Captain America: The Winter Soldier

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Director:Anthony & Joe Russo Cast:Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan Genre:Action, Thriller Run Time:136 mins He’s the star-spangled man, the embodiment of “the best generation”, the scrawny lad-turned brawny superhero, and he’s back to face the complicated modern age head on. Steve Rogers/Captain […]

Review – Sabotage

The trailers for Sabotage may just be the most misleading of the year since it leads you to believe this is just another Expendables-style shoot’em-up starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not that there’s anything wrong with an occasional brainless distraction, but Sabotage is much more than that thanks to its stellar cast, witty script and David Ayer’s […]

Review – Muppets Most Wanted

While it may not be the groundbreaking entry in the franchise, Muppets Most Wanted offers up another welcome slice of everything Muppets fans could ask for with an adventure guaranteed to please audiences of all ages. After getting the band back together in The Muppets, the 2011 outing that successfully revived the franchise, two-thirds of […]

Review – Divergent

It doesn’t take long while watching Divergent to get the sense that the filmmakers desperately want this young adult book adaptation to be the next Twilight, Harry Potter or Hunger Games instead of aiming higher and simply trying to be the first Divergent. In yet another dystopia (since teens could apparently care less about sunny, […]

Review – Veronica Mars

Longtime fans of Veronica Mars, the TV show version, will find Veronica Mars, the movie, a glorious homecoming chock full of winking references and nods celebrating the cult series’ successful transition to the big screen. Newcomers to the franchise will find the experience a bit less enjoyable — somewhat like joining a new school your […]

Review – 300: Rise of an Empire

300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE   Director: Noam Murro Cast: Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro, Hans Matheson, Jamie Blackley, Jack O’Connell, Andrew Tiernan, Callan Mulvey, David Wenham, Mark Killee Genre: Action, Fantasy Run Time: 103 mins The comedians at Rifftrax theorised that a sequel to 2007’s 300 would be named 300 2: 301.
