Machete Kills
When I did my review of the first Machete film, I thought it would be cute to use an online translator and make the title of the review in Spanish.  This time I didn't even bother since if Robert …

'Skyfall' Starring Daniel Craig and Directed By Sam Mendes
It really is funny when you think about it.  In 1995 when James Bond was reinvented for modern times with Goldeneye and had of all people, M tell Bond that he was, if I'm not mistaken a "Sexist …

As I said before, the character of The Incredible Hulk is like instant pudding: impossible to screw up.  There can't be anything too difficult about a man who rages out into a giant green monster …

reviewed Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned. December 22, 2010
Show your rivals who's boss.
The Ballad of Gay Tony was a great add on for the Grand Theft Auto IV series.  It was fun and bright with big nights of glitz and action.  The Lost and the Damned replaces many of those aspects …

For a while I've gotten tired of the "new" guard of action movies.  Usually too stylized with little guys running around.  Too much bullet time and taking themselves so seriously.  …

Hulk (Widescreen 2-Disc Special Edition) (2003)
You know, screwing up the Hulk is like messing up instant pudding.  With pudding, pour mix into a bowl, add milk, stir, let cool and then eat.  Hulk is a guy who when he gets mad, grows into …
