They did a superb job redoing The Hulk from 2003.  Completely ignoring Ang Lee's version, this one makes one smashing and exciting movie!    The first action scene set the pace …

Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return
The first novel in this series succeeded because its childlike graphics and gee-whiz storytelling matched perfectly with this subject matter. We could imagine the infant/child author telling her story …

Iron Man
It has been a long time since I left a theater feeling truly satisfied! I really enjoyed Iron Man for so many reasons- great acting, directing and special effects!     I was really …

Persepolis 1 & 2
Before the movie and before the Cannes Films Festival ravings, Persepolis was an acclaimed comic book and a great story about family loyalty, youthful courage, culture shock and repressive government. …

30 Days of Night (2007 movie)
`30 Days of Night' starts with an admirable idea: How about a vampire story in Northern Alaska during the dead of winter when there is no sunlight for about a month? There's so much you can do with cold …

30 Days of Night (2007 movie)

30 Days of Night (2007 movie)
Creepy, eerie, scary and dark, this movie was surprisingly different from most Vampire movies; there are still sharp teeth involved and loss of blood but also many more heart stopping intense moments …

Batman: The Killing Joke
Blurbs on a cover always tell you that whatever book you're holding in your hands is better than the best, that you'd probably die if you'd put it back to where it came from, and more of that kind of …

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume One
Great literary characters have a tendency to outlive their mortal creators, by finding second and third lives in cultures far removed from those which created them. Here, in the first volume of a collection …

30 Days of Night (2007 movie)
Another vampire movie, yes. But, a damn good one. The sun will not come out for 30 days in the town of Barrow, Alaska. The residents are trapped as a hoarde of vampires makes their way in. They have nowhere …

Special Edition DVD (front)
Visually impressive, this film captures the comic book elements of its source brilliantly. But as a tale of the Spartan stand against the Persians it is woefully unhistoric and overwrought. The Spartans …

Stardust (Widescreen Edition) (2007)
I picked up this DVD not expecting much, having not heard anything about it. I was pleasantly surprised and entertained throughout! Some of the comedy of the film seemed to be right out of Monty Python.    …

Stardust (Widescreen Edition) (2007)
Films that depend heavily on special effects as created by computer generated graphics have never been too interesting for this viewer - and that, of late, covers a lot of territory from the Harry Potter …
