You can pick it up for $20 on Amazon, and that’ll get you the Blu-ray, DVD, and two Digital HD versions of the film (the theatrical cut and the extended director’s cut that is only available [...]

Star Wars Battlefront II Will Deliver Free DLC During Themed Seasons

June 10, 2017 // 0 Comments

EA and DICE caught a lot of flack for the way they handled DLC and the Season Pass for Battlefront. It seems they’ve learned from that criticism and will have a different approach for Battlefront II. They announced at EA Play that Star Wars: Battlefront II will feature free DLC drops during themed seasons. The free content will include [...]

Road House Review

September 24, 2015 // 0 Comments

Road House is one of the best lousy movies of all time. It can be enjoyed on many levels too, such as the “Plan 9 From Outer Space” laugh yourself silly at how lousy it is level, the standard “turn off your brain” action movie level, a time capsule of goofy 1980s clothing and hairstyles level, and even a pseudo philosophical level too! [...]

Spy Review

September 14, 2015 // 0 Comments

Mellisa McCarthy is my wife’s favorite current actress. Her movies are a guilty pleasure for her as much as old Adam Sandler movies were for me back in the day. It’s the cinematic equivalent of comfort food, maybe not good for you, but good nonetheless. I am hit and miss with her movies. I find her shtick to be about as one note as your [...]

Slow West Review

September 6, 2015 // 0 Comments

If the real west were half as violent as depicted in this movie, we would have let the Indians keep it. A bounty hunter with a touch of conscience played with equal parts bravado and grit by Michael Fassbender keeps his true motives a secret from the naïve and gawky Scottish teenager (Kodi Smit-McPhee) for whom he’s offered to serve as [...]

Desperado Review

August 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

Desperado is the sequel to the independent critical darling “El Mariachi” and a prequel to the epic “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”. Of the three movies this one is by far my favorite, even though I know Mariachi is the one I am probably supposed to like the most. I do respect it immensely for what it achieved with such a small budget mind [...]

Terminator Genisys Review

August 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

So I finally have seen the new Terminator movie with the asinine spelling of the word Genesis which I will not dignify for the rest of this review. Anyway, this was not bad for an action movie of the “turn your brain off” variety, but it was more on the level of T3 than the first two movies. Well, maybe better than T3 by a smidge or so but [...]

Reindeer Games Review

July 31, 2015 // 0 Comments

This is one of my favorite horrible movies. It has every bad movie cliché in the book, a ton of gnarly character actors, questionable acting, awful writing, pointless plot twists galore etc, and is centered around a bunch of guys dressed like Santa trying to rob a casino. What’s not to like? To attempt to explain the plot in full with all the [...]

The Gunman Review

July 25, 2015 // 0 Comments

This is strictly a matter of personal taste, but I prefer my shoot em’ up style action flicks to be light on the preachy politics and heavy on the ass kicking suspense. Now, I realize any movie starring Sean Penn is going to be heavy on the former. I found I could mostly ignore that though. Penn here plays a government assassin who has been put [...]

Sniper Elite – Nazi Zombie Army 1 and 2 Review

November 3, 2013 // 2 Comments

If you look over my review of the original game these spins offs came from you can see that I thought very highly of it and even declared it my dark horse game of the year. Since that time the game has found itself the beneficiary of robust support for patches, additional features, and now two quality standalone DLCs. The support has been [...]
