Once in a while, there are movies that break the mold of your typical action genre and define the next few years of action films. In the 1980's, it was Die Hard; in the 1990's, it was the Matrix; in the new millennium, it is Wanted (well I thought it was).Wanted is based upon Mark Millar's explosive graphic novel series and helmed by stunning visua...

Ever since The Crow was released in 1994 and refined the superhero genre, it seems Hollywood cannot get enough of superheroes.  This year is no exception with last month's Iron Man, next month's The Dark Knight, and this month's superhero, The Incredible Hulk. The Hulk has a lot of ground to cover, and Marvel is taking a large chance "reb... Read More

Japan has had a lot of imports over the years and the latest is in remakes of their often-startling horror movies. Japanese horror is visceral and disturbing to most westerners with its bleak sensibilities, spooky little girls, and often complete lack of what we've come to expect by way of rational explanation.It's also amazingly technologically hi...

Transformers, the highly anticipated movie that this reviewer has been waiting for many years was finally released this week. The questions are does it live up to all its hype? Does it live up to the 1980's cartoon? Does it bring back those childhood memories? The answer, for this reviewer, is well...not really. But let's start at the beginning of ... Read More
