Charming spokesperson, Major William Cage, though not a “real” soldier, according to him, is sent to the front line in the war against an invading alien race on a suicide mission. Once there he is swiftly killed in battle by an unusual looking alien. However, he awakens to find that he is repeating the same day… over and over. He meets Vrataski, who seems to understand what happened to him and helps him train to hopefully defeat the alien invasion. Continue reading →
Our favorite billionaire, genius, playboy, hero, Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.), a.k.a., Iron Man, returns and discovers, that sometimes, mistakes from the past can come back to haunt us. In this case, in the form of Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), leader of Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM) and The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), an outspoken villain targeting the U.S. and Iron Man with his evilly twisted homage and lessons in history.

Now that Phase 3 has begun with the release of Captain America: Civil War, I decided it’s time to revisit the movies which were chosen to spearhead this huge and hugely ambitious project. Continue reading →
Picking up right where the first movie left off, Melitis, Marina, Jenny, and Vakirtzis manage to escape the stadium and meet up with another small group of survivors. Not only must they face the zombie horde, they also face a band of men who indiscriminately kill both the infected and those not simply for sport. Meanwhile, a messenger, looking for the one with the knowledge of how to defeat the evil, finds this most unexpected hero. Continue reading →
Oh what wonderful silliness! It is exactly what I expected from The Asylum, and starring Caspar Van Dien. Queen Snow White and princesses, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Rapunzel, along with Red Riding Hood, are the Avengers, who must fight Rumpelstiltskin and the Big Bad Wolf, after they’ve been transported to the modern world, in this “suspend your disbelief and just go with it” flick. It’s not overly memorable, but has some decent make up, gore effects, and in general isn’t too bad for an Asylum movie. If you decide to check this out, Lou Ferrigno, as Iron John, is the best part.
This Canadian/New Zealand indie film was a lot of fun. Featuring the iconic Michael Ironside, doing what he does best. A movie that was written and filmed to seem as if it were shot in the 80’s and set in post apocalyptic late 1997. What a great concept! For the most part, really well done. Would have been better had they stuck to all practical effects. Though I did enjoy the “sploosh” when The Kid used the glove. Apple is an awesome character. “This is my Gnome Stick!”
This is totally worth watching, especially if you’re a fan of cheesy 80’s flicks. It’s currently available on Amazon.
During the zombie apocalypse, survivors, Barry and Benny, band together in search of Barry’s sister, Brooke, who has been kidnapped, to fight not only against the undead but also against mysterious gas-mask wearing soldiers. Continue reading →
Our heroes: Cole (the troubled leader), Kyle (pretty sure his special power is his foul language), Aaron (ninja extraordinaire), and Alex (with all new super mind powers), have continued the fight against evil. Now, in the face of their greatest foes, they must team up with former villain, Eric, and his brother Randall (who, if you recall, was the magician in the first film that created our favorite Ninjas). Together, they must battle the Old Ones, the original immortal monsters from which all others descended.
Eric, who died mysteriously after dabbling in magic, is accidentally resurrected by his brother, Randall, after he discovered The Book. Eric begins consuming souls and turning people into zombies. Randall consults The Book, and gives their friends, Cole, Kyle, and Fitz, the power of Ninja. Now only they can stop the zombie menace. Continue reading →
After “salvaging” a mysterious orb, Peter Quill finds himself being pursued by Ronan the Accuser, a member of the Kree Empire. To save the universe, Quill joins forces with Rocket, the machine gun wielding cyber-enhanced, mechanical genius, raccoon; Groot, a Flora Colossus; Gamora, former ally of Ronan, adopted daughter of Thanos; and Drax, the overly muscled, overly literal, revenge seeking, Destroyer.
