  • Miami Connection 1987

    Watched 09 Apr, 2014 2

    Director and star Y.K. Kim made a film that perfectly captures America in the 1980's and it's bad fashion, love of karate, cheesy pop music, and homoeroticism.

The storyline is very intriguing and leads to some entertaining thrills and an action packed finale but you can tell that the two leads are too old and too short for their roles and probably would have benefited to have two younger, 30ish actors in their parts.

    Also, why hasn't Vinnie Jones been in any of the Expendables movies????

Actually the whole family feels extremely real and that's what I loved most about. Even Will…

    I am a big fan of all of director Darren Aronofsky's work so I was a little bit hesitant to see what will happen when he tackled big budget, religious subject matter and surprisingly I loved it a lot more than I anticipated to. I was constantly entertained, wow'd by many of the visuals and found the story to be thoroughly engaging and a great artistic interpretation of the bible story instead of a literal adaptation.

    It bothers me that…
