FIrst sequel to The Girl WIth The Dragon Tattoo has Mikael investigating human traffiking and sex slavery while trying to help Lisbeth clear her name for the murder of individuals involved in his investigation. A great story and an opening up of Lisbeths past make up for it's dull spots and gimmicks.
I must have watched this film 100 times now, the more you watch it, the funnier it gets. Full of subtle human and not for the fainr of heart, its a film you definately have to sit down and pay attention to.
Even though I already posted a review for this extremely overrated shitfest of a movie, I feel like talking about it more. Equilibrium is one of the worst sci-fi/action movies ever made. It's an extremely uninspired amalgamation of The Matrix, 1984, and THX 1138. Plagued with horrendously ridiculous action scenes with ZERO tension … more
You might think the contrast between the early gangster movies of the 1930's might be a stark contrast to today's swear-and-blood festivals. You would be quite right about that, too. Yet, going back and watching some of those early gangster movies shows that there isn't all that much of a difference between the classics of Lon Chaney and James Cagney as you might think. There is, after all, a reason … more
This was a good chamber event over all since most matches were good. I always enjoy these events and the chamber matches in particular. You get some good special features with the DVD so that is always a plus.
WWE ELIMINATION CHAMBER 2010 1.[ELIMINATION CHAMBER WWE TITLE]SHEAMUS VS JOHN CENA VS TRIPLE H VS KOFI KINGSTON VS RANDY ORTON VS TED DIBIASE-excellent opener right here that was also the first time all six participants made it into the match without an elimination. There is of course many great moments in the match but the big story here … more
This was a good event that had some good matches on it. Not everything was great and some matches were cut short but overall it was a good event. There were at least two really good to great matches here. Plus we get a bonus match in which Bret Hart wins the US title.

With all the historical baseball films out there this is one of the best! During WW II there was a dearth of "male" players to fill the minor league rosters. As a result there was an interest in having something to take the place of these games. Someone came up with the idea of selling a women's baseball league. This film uses an all-star cast to magically show … more
For all of my childhood, Who Framed Roger Rabbit has been one of my favorite movies. Thankfully, it's another one of those movies that still holds up really well as an adult. 1988 was quite a year for animation. Out in Japan, Grave of the Fireflies, My Neighbor Totoro, and Akira were released in theaters and were all superbly animated films that in scales from good to masterful, delivered storylines … more
RabidChihuahua posted a Quick Tip about Taken (2008).
Taken is good as a popcorn flick, but my main beef with this movie lies in the fact that for this type of movie, a PG-13 rating held back a lot of potential carnage that would be right at home with it. Even with that taken into account, it was fun to see Liam Neeson kick a ton of ass and kill tons of heinous people. As stated earlier, this is good popcorn entertainment, … more
Unlike industry moguls Pixar and DreamWorks, Blue Sky Studios hasn’t been quite as versatile in their subject-matter when it comes to pumping out computer generated animated feature films. Most people are aware of their ever-growing Ice Age franchise but do keep in mind that these are the guys behind Robots, Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who, the forthcoming Epic and Charles M Shultz’s … more
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is thankfully, another one of those favorite movies from my childhood that still holds up really well as an adult. While the story itself is a little conventional, what made this movie such a joy to watch was its masterful fusion of live-action and 2D animation (which despite being 25 years-old as of writing this, still looks amazing today), hilarious gags, and … more
I know I'll be loathed for not giving Schindler's List a perfect rating, but here's my stance on it. While the overall story was presented in a really good fashion, what I thought hindered this movie a little was the black-and-white cinematography and the use of English-speaking actors speaking in German accents. The former in that … more
Of all the computer animated talking animals out there these days, penguins have certainly enjoyed the limelight. Happy Feet, Penguins of Madagascar, Surfs Up, The Jungle Bunch- these are just a few of the CG films in the past few years to focus on the flightless birds of the colder climes. Believe it or not, I was on the fence about viewing Happy Feet ever since … more
This is a funny movie although not a laugh out loud constantly flick but it is funny. The group here and the people they cast make for a charismatic cast. In the Pauly Shore flicks this may be my third favorite or something like that. "In the Army Now" is one of those flicks that are good for a day you have with nothing to do, stupid funny sometimes hits the mark.
IN THE ARMY NOW I will admit it right here and now, I am a Pauly Shore fan. I think a lot of people who read this will ask me why or something but half of them are probably closet fans. Plus I am sure most would admit to liking at least one of his movies. These are those types of guilty pleasures for people but I have to … more
When it comes to Disney, Pixar has been a behind-the-scenes factor far before their official merger in 2006. 2007’s Meet the Robinsons boasts John Lasseter’s influence as the fusion between Disney and Pixar occurred during the production of the film (when Lasseter became the chief creative officer for the Walt Disney Company). Coming in at a runtime of 95-minutes … more
