In 2005 my friend and I went to a theater, bought tickets to a movie (probably Fever Pitch or something) and opened every door until we found Sin City. I had been obsessing over the trailer and knew, with its more-than-unique style and incredible cast, that I had to see it on the big screen. It did not disappoint.
Three years later (in 2008) me and that same friend when to the same theater, excited to see Frank Miller's newest…
Emmet the LEGO as Peter Quill an outlaw cowboy space pirate ladies man with a code name who leads a group of misfits known as the Guardians of the Galaxy against an evil guy who will stop at nothing to destroy the universe. This group of misfits includes a sexy green chic, a tree creature, a talking raccoon, a WWE wrestler, and the best part is they turn the MCU world upside down in one of the best summer blockbusters…
John Carpenter's "Big Trouble in Little China" is one of the best comic book movies ever made. The fact that the film is actually not based on a comic book is beside the point, because, with its square-jawed hero, heightened dialogue, and characters with names like Gracie Law and Egg Shen, "Big Trouble in Little China" feels comic book-inspired. Its energy, memorable characters and dialogue, and abundance of adventure resemble something born on colorful, two-dimensional, paneled pages. Regardless of where…
There are some movies that are so "cult" that even regular film fans wouldn't have even heard of them. That's exactly how I felt last year when I saw Vanishing Point for the very first time. It was a bolt from the blue, a true revelation, a stunningly cool and subversive movie that I simply loved. Richard C Sarafian also turned a 1970 Dodge Challenger into another of those cars to purchase when that lottery win arrives.

Priests say their prayers
Doctors do their jobs
people live their lives
And one poor Ellen Burstyn is hanging around the city
from hospitals to churches
with her sunglasses on
searching for a solution
for her poor girl's problem
daughter's body is Satan's home now
nothing is safe to this woman and people around her
Not much time left for them
Still , this creepy thing is happening on a day like all the other days .
Not that I…
This is pretty much exactly what I needed to see after the continuously more and more generic zombie flicks coming out nowadays. Despite it's extraordinarily low-budget, lack of Walking Dead-quality make-up effects and the usual zombie-related deaths, I thought that The Battery still managed to be awesome. I love that it was about the two lead characters dealing with the apocalypse (and each other) rather than the focus being on crazy amounts of zombie carnage (which, don't get me wrong,…
Wow! Forget everything else for now, this was a non-stop thrill-ride packed with fast-paced martial arts, gunfights and pure adrenaline. I'll admit, there's not a whole lot of plot or character development here, but you could care less in a film such as this. Gareth Evans has crafted what may be one of the best (and most violent) action flicks in years.
Set in a crime-ridden housing project in Jakarta, Indonesia, a police squad arrives in a van to take…
I don't know what to say about Riki-Oh. Words can't do it justice. Look, there's a scene where Ricky cuts a dude's stomach open, and the dude pulls out his own intestines and strangles Ricky with them. This is some next level shit.
The whole thing is like a cartoon. But a cartoon set in a prison with the most insanely graphic violence you'll ever see. But the violence is all meted out via rubber appendages and dodgy mannequins and…
Blood Simple may very well be the most powerful and confidant debut film of the last 50 years. It's a paranoid stunner: a film full of paranoia as a terrific means of suspense building. But also it's a film that is so good that it seems to have been made by a paranoid director and writer who feared that they would only be able to make only one film, so they made that one film the best representation of their…
