The Wolf of Wall Street – Jordan Belfort’s a Dick

The Wolf Of Wall Street (2013)

It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted a movie review here on the site.  That’s not to say that I’m not watching movies… far from it.  It’s just that I’ve been watching primarily horror flicks which I review over at ScareTissue.com. That said, Wife and kids were out of town recently and I had the opportunity to watch a non-horror flick in the theater: The Wolf of Wall Street.  I’d been interested in this … Continue reading

Man of Steel (2013) – Not Your Father’s Superman

Man Of Steel (2013)

Man of Steel is a 2013 reboot of the Superman franchise directed by Zack Snyder, produced by Christopher Nolan, and scripted by David S. Goyer.  Once again we’re given the origin of the character which was originally told in the 1978 classic Superman.  Early indications are that Man of Steel is to launch a shared movie universe similar to how Marvel has created a shared universe for Iron Man, Thor and the other Avengers.  This … Continue reading

Iron Man 3 (2013) – Robert Downey Jr. Says Goodbye?

Iron Man 3 North American Release Poster (2013)

I went to see Iron Man 3 the other night.  It’s been a couple of weeks since the flick came out so I figured going to a 10:20 PM show on a Wednesday night I wouldn’t have much trouble getting tickets.  Boy was I right… I was quite literally the only person in the theater.  As I get going here I’ll talk openly about the film so this post WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS.  If you’ve not … Continue reading

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) – Worth The Wait?

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is the the sequel to the 2009 G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra…. sort of.  Before I get into this I wanted to mention two things.  First, this review will contain spoilers.  If you haven’t watched the movie yet and you don’t want to know the plot stop reading and come back when you’ve seen it.  Second, I’m a HUGE G.I. Joe fan.  Not only of the live action stuff, but more … Continue reading

The Dark Knight Rises – Nolan’s Trilogy Complete

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Four years ago, Christopher Nolan gave us a cinematic masterpiece called The Dark Knight that was much more than just a comic book movie… it was a brilliant piece of film making.  Last week, he brought us the follow up… The Dark Knight Rises.  Would it live up to the hype?  Could it possibly be an appropriate sequel to such a critically acclaimed movie?  I went this week to find out. I can’t launch into any sort of discussion without … Continue reading

Freddy’s Back… Sort Of… “A Nightmare On Elm Street”

A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)

The wife isn’t a huge horror movie fan, but she’ll indulge me once a year on Halloween.  Last year we watched Psycho and the previous year we checked out the original Halloween.  I’d had the remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street sitting on my shelf for quite a few months now and I figured Halloween night was a good opportunity to check it out. In a word… meh. First off, the flick starts in … Continue reading

Harry Potter, The Empire And… Corn?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (2011)

It’s been some time since I’ve done a movie review so rather than create a post for each of the movies I’ve seen recently I figured I’d put one of these compilation posts together.  I don’t go to the movies all that often, but after I’d seen Dark Of The Moon not once, but TWICE it was rather strange for me to be back in the theater.  That said, when Harry Potter comes calling I … Continue reading

A Rewatch In 3D

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon (2011)

I recently reviewed the Michael Bay flick Transformers: Dark of the Moon after seeing it on opening night.  In that review I stated that I’d seen the flick in 2D and didn’t really see the value in 3D (or words to that effect).  A good friend of mine Stan commented on the blog and said that I should definitely see the flick in 3D… so that’s what I did. I loved the flick the first … Continue reading

Dark Of The Moon – The Final Transformers?

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon (2011)

The newest (and perhaps last) entry into the Michael Bay version of the Transformers franchise came out last night – Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.  This review WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS.  If you don’t want to know the story come back after you’ve watched the flick. Before we get started I want to remind readers that I’m a big Transformers geek so this may be a bit biased.  If you want to get a historical perspective … Continue reading

11 Years And We’re Still Screaming For Scream 4

Scream 4 (2011)

I don’t go to the movies all that often these days but when it comes to a good horror franchise I just can’t pass it up.  I consider the Scream franchise one of the best in horror over the last couple of decades so Marko and I headed to the theater on opening weekend to check this one out. I was not a huge fan of the third entrance into this series (that’s the one … Continue reading
