With 2012’s American Mary and the “T is for Torture Porn” segment of ABCs of Death 2 (2014) the directing duo of the Soska Sisters made a name for themselves as a pair who loves to bring the sick and twisted to the screen. That they pretty much immediately thereafter went to work for WWE […]

Joe’s Mission: Impossible Ranking

I thought that instead of just doing a review of Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation, I’d take the opportunity to offer my opinion for how the five movies in the franchise rate against each other.  I’ve been hearing a lot of people on the podcasts I listen to rank the espionage thrillers, and I wanted a […]

For years, two Native American tribes have lived peacefully after a war that nearly wiped them both out.  But now, the son of one of the cheifs wishes to reignite the conflict and wipe out his enemies by framing the son of their chief for desecrating a burial ground.  Armed with his deception, Wirepa (Te […]

Barely Lethal

Barely Lethal

Early into this movie I became convinced that it must have been written by Easy A screenwriter Bert V. Royal, who in an interview once said that he had other ideas for adaptations for classic pieces of literature set in modern day high schools.  I was so convinced that Barely Lethal was one of these […]

I did something new before going to see this latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: I actually went back and read old Ant-Man comic books.  Not that I’ve been opposed to doing this before other movies, but now I have a great means of doing so: I signed up for Marvel Unlimited, which provides […]

The best of the best pilots in the world are called upon to take out America’s enemies.  No, we’re not talking about Top Gun, but rather the 1990 action movie Fire Birds.  The primary difference between the two?  In Top Gun they fly jets, and in Fire Birds they fly helicopters.  Granted, I haven’t seen […]

In his 1970 film Ned Kelly, Academy Award-winning director Tony Richardson (Tom Jones (1963)) cast Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger in the role of the titular Australian outlaw. Presented here as something of an iconic counterculture rebel, the life of crime that eventually found Kelly on the gallows (which is how the film opens) is […]

Bulletproof: Tough Guys of Action Collection

Collecting 8 iconic action movies starring 8 different iconic action stars, this 2 disc set is overflowing with testosterone, gun powder, fire, and blood.  I for one was excited to sink my teeth into this.  I’m a huge fan of the genre because like horror movies, a bad action movie is usually a pretty great […]

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline

| June 26, 2015 | 0 Comments

I was listening to the new episode of The Marvel Cinematic Universe Podcast yesterday and the topic of the MCU chronology came up.  It’s interesting to examine as Marvel so far has consistently maintained ambiguity concerning when certain chapters of their universe take place in relation to others.  Below is the order as I see […]

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Earth’s mightiest heroes are back for another round, trying once again to save the Earth from certain destruction.  This time, their adversary is not an alien force from a distant galaxy but instead a disturbingly terrestrial foe: an artificially intelligent robot named Ultron (James Spader; The Black List). After the events of The Avengers, our […]
