Movie Review: The Purge

Movie Review: The Purge

This yearly event is a way to keep crime and unemployment at an all time low. The Purge takes place on an annual basis and lasts from 7pm to 7am and in these 12 hours, there is no prosecution for any crime committed within this time frame. Now, not all people partake in this outrageous event; James Sandin played by Ethan Hawk, a well off security system salesman is one of these people. He heads home to prepare for the […]

Movie Review: After Earth

Movie Review: After Earth

  There are a few things that I come to expect from director M. Night Shyamalan: spectacular camera angles, technically precise editing and of course a twist/turn when the audience least expects it. Unfortunately, After Earth, Shyamalan’s latetest film doesn’t deliver as I was hoping it would. When you take the storyline of Ferngully, mix it with a slightly less awesome level of Avatar visuals and add in the action of Battle LA, you basically get After Earth. Read the […]

Movie Review: Fast & Furious 6

Movie Review: Fast & Furious 6

Do you like explosions, car chases, witty one-liners and pulse racing action scenes? Well then you will LOVE the latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise; Fast & Furious 6. We begin this movie following Toretto (Vin Diesel) and O’conner (Paul Walker) as they wind their way along the Caymen Island coastline taking every curve at the highest possible speed until they stop at what is now the home of O’Conner, his wife Mia (Jordana Brewster) and their newborn […]

Movie Review: Star Trek: Into Darkness

Movie Review: Star Trek: Into Darkness

J.J. Abrams returns with the all-star cast of the 2009 reboot of ‘Star Trek’ for this inevitable second act. So how was it? Was it as good as the last movie? How did it compare to the original series, etc? Let’s first get one thing clear – as these more recent iterations of the Star Trek universe exist within an alternate timeline to that of the original(s), expect there to be some moments of hesitation in feeling satisfied with how […]

Movie Review: Oblivion

Movie Review: Oblivion

Kicking off a summer of visionary science-fiction movies, is ‘Oblivion’.  Known primarily for for his work on the recent ‘Tron’ remake (and upcoming sequel), director Joseph Kosinski also helped to write and produce ‘Oblivion’; which was originally realized as a comic book upon which the movie is based.  Bringing sci-fi ‘out of the darkness of spaceship hulls’, the majority of the story takes place on earth.  The juxtaposition of clean, futuristic technology surrounded by a post-nuclear apocalyptic landscape allows for […]

Movie Review: Jurassic Park 3D

Movie Review: Jurassic Park 3D

Back when Jurassic Park first came out, audiences were stunned at the unbelievable effects that were unheard of at the time.  Spielberg did more than just make a movie; Spielberg brought dinosaurs back to life.  I remember first watching it in theatres when I was just a wee lad and getting so excited to see the massive T-Rex for the first time.  Now years later with special effects having evolved so rapidly, the question is does Jurassic Park hold up […]

Move Review: Evil Dead 2013

Move Review: Evil Dead 2013

Unleashing bloody love, the remake of the 1981 cult horror classic Evil Dead promises to bring an updated storyline to a new generation of nerds. And boy, are we glad for that… If you are one of the few who holds Evil Dead close to your heart, you will be happy to know that director Fede Alvarez took the time to make this just right. This is not a shot-by-shot remake of the original but it plays very close to […]
