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

Bend Some Bullets With ‘Wanted’

Wanted (2008)

Being that I’m a comic nerd and a fan of assassin movies I’m pissed that it took me so long to get to this one.  I’ve never read the comic that this flick is based on but I figured that wouldn’t be a problem as it’s “loosely” based on the book from what I hear. Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) is stuck in dead end job that he hates.  His world changes when he’s told that … Continue reading

The Unsolved ‘Zodiac’

Zodiac (2007)

I’ve been enthralled for years by the story of the Zodiac killer so I was very much looking forward to seeing this flick – not sure why it took me so long but I’m happy that I’ve finally gotten around to seeing it.  For those that don’t know, Zodiac tells the story of a serial killer in the San Francisco area in the late 60’s and early 70’s.  The Zodiac killer murdered 5 people, sent … Continue reading

Slow Start Awesome Resolution “Just One Look”

Just One Look (2004)

Harlan Coben is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.  He’s got a couple of recurring characters and also writes stand alone novels that simply blow your socks off and Just One Look is no exception. Suburban mother Grace’s world is turned upside down when she picks up some family photos and notices one that should be there.  A photo of her husband that’s twenty years old has been magically inserted into her pack.  Her … Continue reading

Jason Is Back On ‘Friday The 13th’

Friday The 13th (2009)

In 1980 the face of horror movies changed.  We were introduced to Camp Crystal Lake and a killer named Jason Voorhees (yes, I know that Jason’s mother was the killer in the original… stick with me).  From 1980 to 2003, we were given 11 sequels that took Jason from Crystal Lake to deep space,  New York City and even to Hell.  After nearly 30 years it was time for this franchise to get rebooted… apparently. … Continue reading

Gaming System To Big Screen – “Hitman”

Hitman (2007)

When this movie (directed by Xavier Gens) was announced I was so pumped.  For those of you that don’t know, Hitman is based on a video game franchise.  If you’re a fan of the game series then you’ll probably like the film (though many things have changed from the games to the movie).  That said, you certainly don’t need to have experience with the game to watch the movie. The main character is Agent 47 … Continue reading

A Great Movie With A Terrible Ending – ‘No Country For Old Men’

No Country For Old Men

Before I start this review, I need to inform you that I’m a bit biased… I’m a person that needs the END of a movie to be good in order for me to deem the movie a success.  I’m not saying it needs to be a happy ending by any stretch, but the ending needs to tie the movie up. That being said, this movie was great (so great in fact that it won an … Continue reading
