Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde

| November 14, 2017

If you love action movies and you missed Atomic Blonde (2017) in the theater, you owe it to yourself to check it out immediately! From John Wick-director David Leitch, Atomic Blonde delivers much the same sort of brutal action as John Wick. Granted, there’s probably less of that action in Atomic Blonde than in John […]

Lethal Weapon: Season 1

Lethal Weapon: Season 1

| September 19, 2017

I’ve become as enamored as anyone else with this trend of turning a movie or movie series into a television series.  Fargo is terrific, Hannibal is amazing, West World isn’t really my cup of tea but it’s obviously very popular.  When I heard they were turning Lethal Weapon into a series, like many my first […]

Timebomb

| September 1, 2017

Eddie Kay (Michael Biehn, The Terminator) is your average, no phone-owning, Caesar salad-eating, single watchmaker, which is to say he’s a pretty boring guy. Or rather, he was, until he ran into a burning building like a goddamn superhero, kicked through a wall to save a woman and her baby, and got himself recognized as […]

John Frankenheimer established himself as a director of considerable note early on with films like Birdman of Alcatraz (1962) and the classic thriller The Manchurian Candidate (1962). Unfortunately, prominent titles in the later part of his career were met with understandable derision, including the epic disaster The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996) and the meandering […]

The Belko Experiment

The Belko Experiment

| June 30, 2017

While the world waited for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) to drop, another Gunn project low-key hit theaters in March of this year. Stepping away from Marvel for a hot minute, Gunn penned and produced a small, bloody, action, survival horror film in The Belko Experiment with Greg McLean (Wolf Creek […]

Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne

| December 2, 2016

I’m not sure why I insist on continuing to watch every Jason Bourne movie that comes along.  Part of me hopes that one of the sequels will eventually manage to recapture the magic of the original Bourne Identity.  I had high hopes for this latest chapter in the life of Jason Bourne (Matt Damon; The […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Ridiculous Action Movie Scenes

The Countdown: Top Ten Ridiculous Action Movie Scenes

| September 6, 2016

On my podcast, I try to always see the good in things, except for on rare, very fun occasions.  One thing I really like about The Countdown is most of the time they stay very positive.  Their top ten last ten episodes usually feature some movies they really dislike, and occasionally they do lists like […]

Supernatural: Season 11

| September 5, 2016

To be honest, I’d never seen an episode of CW’s hit paranormal thriller Supernatural until I got the eleventh season in the mail to review.  My brother is a longtime fan of the series and has admitted to me that he only has kept watching out of morbid curiosity to see how things wrap up.  […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Kick-ass Female TV Characters

| August 30, 2016

There’s nothing quite like a strong, intelligent, empowered female character who doesn’t need to be rescued and isn’t defined solely by her need to get a boyfriend.  Someone who not only will keep up with the boys but put them in their place with grace and civility.  Someone who is part of the media world […]

Those of us who love action movies have long understood that, when you want to watch some bonkers 1980s action, Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus’ The Cannon Group is where the action is. I mean, we’re talking the studio here that put out the Death Wish sequels, the Missing in Action movies, Cobra (1986), Over […]
