Geeky movie reviews.
The movie Red follows the story of Frank Moses (Bruce Willis), an ex-CIA agent who retired and was tagged “RED” (Retired Extremely Dangerous). Along with trying to figure out why he is being hunted, Frank protects and courts Sarah Ross (Mary-Louise Parker), a young woman who only knows Moses through their phone conversations about his military pension. Here is my review of “Red”. More >
“The Social Network” follows the creation of the popular social network site, Facebook. The story also follows law suits between the main character, Mark Zuckerberg and other characters in the story. This is a tale full of betrayal, lost love, and manipulation. Here is my review of “The Social Network”. More >
I am reminded about the storyline from the comics as I watch this film right off the bat by the animation. The artwork in the comics, titled “The Supergirl from Krypton,” was done by the late Michael Turner and the team of artists did a fantastic job adapting it. Turner’s art style consists of beautiful women with eyes expressing a wide range of emotions accompanied with long flowing hair. It was a wonderful attempt that I believe succeed in bringing Michael Turner’s art to life, the perfect example is in Supergirl herself. Another is the elongated ears Turner would always give Batman when drawing him. Overall the animation was excellent when compared to the detailed artwork it came from. I can only wonder how much input Michael Turner would have had if he were still alive. More >
“The Town” follows the story of Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck), a bank robber, whose group takes a hostage, Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall) during a bank robbery. They let her go as soon as they know they aren’t being followed and they take her ID and find out she lives near them. Doug is put in charge of making sure she doesn’t know anything. Through doing this he falls in love with her and she is now thrown into his crazy world of robberies and gang bosses. Here’s my review of “The Town”. More >
I was very mixed about this movie going into the theater. On one hand, there is the fact that James Cameron’s fantastic quality 3D camera system is integrated into this film, but on the other hand, this is a Resident Evil movie. Here’s my review of Resident Evil: Afterlife. More >
Most audiences’ first experience with this movie was a few years ago when Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez made their Grindhouse double feature. Between showings of the two movies, Rodriguez made a real trailer for a fake movie (or so we thought) called Machete. This trailer gained such a following that Rodriguez decided to turn this one-shot comical trailer into a full blown film.
Machete follows Machete Cortez (Danny Trejo), an immigrant and former Mexican Federale who is commissioned for an assassination plot to earn some money this side of the border. But things take a turn in this action-packed movie filled with corruption, greed, drugs, and lots of blood. Here’s my review of Machete. More >
