I really had high hopes for this.  The trailer looked really cool, I like Bruce Willis a lot, and so I went into this completely sold.  Unfortunately, the movie refused to meet me half way and give me something somewhat unique or interesting that I could latch onto. The story is simple enough, though it […]

Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Silver Warrior

Power Rangers Super Megaforce: The Silver Warrior

Lionsgate’s second home video release of Power Rangers Super Megaforce collects the 5th through 8th episodes of Power Rangers’ 21st season (including “Samurai Surprise,” “Soul of the Tiger,” “Silver Lining” and “Silver Lining, Part Two”). Like the Super Megaforce release before it, the Silver Warrior DVD is presented barebones, entirely bereft of special features. However, the […]

Kingsman: The Secret Service

If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that good movies do not come out in February.  That being said, Kingsman: The Secret Service, which opens on February 13 is awesome.  I know; I’m surprised too.  I managed to catch a free early screening of the movie last night at the Alamo Drafthouse here […]

Ragnarok

Ragnarok

“Ragnarok” is an unique film out of Norway. While I enjoyed the initial viewing, I found I liked it even more with the second go- round. While this may be standard for a typical action/ adventure film, “Ragnarok” is different as I’d classify it as an adventure with a suspenseful air. Average suspense films may […]

Since Taken was released in 2006, Liam Neeson has been accused of playing the same role over again.  As an action star, his movies are thought to blend together into an indiscernible series of images narrated by a well-graveled voice.  There is some truth to these claims: Taken 2 was a little dull, Unknown was […]

The Expendables 3

They’re back! The gang’s all here, and they are like a fine wine: they get better with age. They are the Expendables. And considering the number of cast additions in the third installment, the name of the crew might as well be the Expandables. With a whopping 17 (!) action stars in one movie, you’d […]

Toriko: Collection Two

By this point, if you’ve been following our coverage of FUNimation’s Toriko releases, you’ve no doubt given the series the five or six episodes of viewing that’s required to really get into it, as I recommended in my review of Collection One. If that’s the case, you’re no doubt curious about whether or not the […]

Attack on Titan Vol.2

Attack on Titan Vol.2

| October 7, 2014 | 0 Comments

After watching the first episode of Attack on Titan, I knew that it was something special. It had tons of great action, intense pacing, but above all, a premise that anyone could get into. It was a no brainer that it would be a sensation and the fact that its somewhat crossed over and shown […]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I try to avoid Michael Bay’s attempts to profit through the rape and pillage of my childhood, but a morbid curiosity left me on the fence about seeing the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie until my brother convinced me that it wasn’t that bad and that he actually really enjoyed it.  I now assume […]

Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons

| May 31, 2014 | 0 Comments

The latest action-comedy from Chinese writer/director Stephen Chow is a loose reworking of the classic Chinese novel, Journey to the West. The film tells the tale of an unshaven Buddhist monk named Xuanzhang struggling to master his humane style of demon slaying whereby he attempts to reform the monsters with nursery rhymes. In the process, […]
