Wild Card (2015) Review

July 20, 2019 // 0 Comments

Nick Wild is a Las Vegas bodyguard with a gambling addiction, and an action movie hero addiction as well. Dreaming of escaping this seedy world so he can sail a yacht around Corsica, he earns money through cutesy side jobs like helping losers get laid by letting them beat him up in front of their girlfriends, while serving as the “Mike” Jason [...]

Backfire (2017) Review

April 25, 2019 // 0 Comments

I’ve seen plenty of movies which required its audience to turn off their brain. ‘Backfire’ (2017) is one of a select few that also requires them to turn off their souls. Note: their brains should still be turned off as well. I had moderate hopes for a mid-level shoot em’ up based on a promising premise that hooked me in the Netflix [...]

Run All Night Review

April 4, 2019 // 2 Comments

Liam Neeson, as I have stated before, is my jam. If Robert Mitchum or Charles Bronson were still around I would have a harder choice, but since they’re not, Liam is the undisputed king of my favorite hard asses. Ed Harris is also up there, and this movie brings the two of them together as an aging gangster and hitman, both of with grown up [...]

It’s hard to believe it’s only been a month since BioWare and EA released the heavily hyped Anthem on PC, Xbox One and PS4. It’s a game that had a lot of fanfare behind it and was poised to be the next big thing from BioWare. It’s an open-world looter shooter stepping in to compete against the likes of Destiny, The Division [...]

The Starving Games Review

November 24, 2018 // 0 Comments

It is a futile endeavor to review a movie directed/produced by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the duo responsible for such “classics” as Epic Movie, Date Movie, Vampires Suck, Meet the Spartans, and the Scary Movie franchise. This movie is what it is. Nothing I say will discourage those who like this sort of thing to knock it off, [...]
