   OK, let's get this out of the way right up front. Superman is 80 years old. (Not the character, the franchise.) That means there are 80 years of history and tradition surrounding the …

Let me first say that I've always believed that Superman as a whole is somewhat dull. Supes is bogged down by the fact that he ignited the Golden Age of Comics. He's an almighty being with few, …

Those of you who remember Christopher Reeve's "campy" Superman films of the 1970's can forget anything you saw in those films.  There is nothing "campy" in this film and …

Much better than expected, but totally unnecessary. The series started off sort of weak as well, but became quite impressive as the seasons came and went.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2010)
It's always hard to hear that when an American company is adapting a foreign film.  The general opinion is that it will often suck.  David Fincher's adaption though two years after this …

Ryan Gosling in this film is so perfect. He barely says a word yet all the emotions that come from him are awesome. Such a good, tense movie. Carey Mulligan was in it, who I HATE, but not even she could …

Taken
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 …

While this movie is a little uneven, hence the +3 rating, there are some moments in this that made me laugh my ass off.  The early parts of this movie are the most satisfying, since when Major Payne …

Mr. Bean - The Whole Bean (Complete Set) (1994)
Mr. Bean is certainly a highlight in early 90's British comedy.  While Mr. Bean can be compared to Pee Wee Herman in that they're both "children trapped in men's bodies," I …
