Fast and Furious 6 (2013 film)
Really, film franchises that go past the # 3 sequel are rare and honestly, most of them aren’t that successful. I have to admit that I wasn’t exactly that fond of the first two films in the …

A Good Day to Die Hard (2013 film)
I am very fond of the first two “Die Hard” films. They marked a change in the 80’s action hero, because it featured a very ordinary cop named John McClane who was a cowboy, tough as …

Safe House
There is no question that Denzel Washington is one of the best actors of this generation. The man is enough to draw me out to see a movie in theaters, or at least rent out a movie on Dvd. Washington has …

'Safe' Starring Jason Statham
Honestly, I have been a little sad that despite his acting talent, Jason Statham seems to have been reduced by Hollywood to a typecast that puts him in one mediocre action flick after the next. I know …

Pathfinder (Unrated Edition) (2007)
Pathfinder (Legend of the Ghost warrior) is a film that I have to say would have to be an acquired taste. Loosely based on the Graphic novel published by Dark Hose comics, upon its production, it was …
