REVIEW: Terminator Genisys

REVIEW: Terminator GenisysTerminator is arguably one of the best known and highest grossing franchises ever. It spans thirty years and over a billion dollars. Half of that has been in a tail spin though. Since James Cameron stopped being involved (T3), the last two films have made less money and been much more poorly received critically. And...

REVIEW: Ted 2

REVIEW: Ted 2In the sequel to 2012’s smash hit Ted, can Seth MacFarlane make up for the lackluster success of A Million Ways To Die In The West (Although I thought it was OK and it did make a little money)? Originally, Ted 2 was going to be a Smokey And The Bandit homage about John and... Read More »

REVIEW: Jurassic World

REVIEW: Jurassic WorldAt the earliest drawings of the fractal curve, few clues to the underlying mathematical structure will be seen. This movie has been in development for over a decade. Steven Spielberg got the ball rolling with a new idea. At one point Sam Neil, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Richard Attenborough all said they were attached... Read More »

REVIEW: Entourage

REVIEW: EntourageEntourage ran for eight seasons on HBO. It was well received critically and was well liked by the majority of people that watched it. Popular consensus on the series finale was that it was disappointing though. But to be able to go back and have a second chance… isn’t that what most of us wish... Read More »

REVIEW: Tomorrowland

REVIEW: TomorrowlandThis is one of the most confusing reviews I will probably ever have to write. I’ve kind of been experimenting with my movie going experiences this year. I went and saw Ex Machina despite the fact that I hadn’t seen a trailer for it and didn’t know what it was about. I went and saw... Read More »

REVIEW: Daredevil Episodes 10, 11, 12

REVIEW: Daredevil Episodes 10, 11, 12Episode 10: Nelson v. Murdock opens with Foggy confronting Matt about his nocturnal activities. The flashback to them meeting in college is good. Foggy listening to God damn Drops Of Jupiter is perfect. Foggy’s above average acting maintains through this episode. The second flashback of them is particularly endearing. I’ve gotta say though, I feel... Read More »

REVIEW: Daredevil Episodes 5, 6, 7

REVIEW: Daredevil Episodes 5, 6, 7Again, these will be general episode reviews and therefore not so spoileriffic. Episode 5:World On Fire begins with a battered Claire waking up at Matt’s apartment. They have a very candid scene where Matt reveals how his powers work. The acting and writing are great but I’m not sure how I feel about the way... Read More »

REVIEW: Daredevil Episode 2, 3, 4

REVIEW: Daredevil Episode 2, 3, 4In the interest of getting some sleep before work and also not wanting to spoil everything, I’ll be doing a much more succinct review of these episodes. Episode 2:Cut Man starts out engagingly enough with a man finding Daredevil’s near unconscious body in a dumpster and running away. He goes and brings Claire Temple (Played... Read More »

REVIEW: Daredevil Episode One

REVIEW: Daredevil Episode OneNetflix is still making dreams come true. Following on the success of shows like House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black, they’ve finally teamed up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (And yes, it references the films). I’ve always thought Daredevil was an underrated hero. He mostly works in the Hell’s Kitchen section of... Read More »

REVIEW: The Gunman

REVIEW: The GunmanAs previously discussed in my TAK3N review, Luc Besson and company have been on my shit list lately. Maybe all of France has. I don’t know. So this director (Pierre Morel) was the cinematographer on The Transporter (Written by Besson), then he directed District B-13 (Written by Besson), then he did camera work on Transporter...
