Drop Zone is the typical mid-90s action flick: average script – this one was co-written by, of all people, High School Musical series scribe Peter Barsocchini –, forgettable action sequences, a low budget and a (then) A-list actor willing to take the money to put his name on the poster.

This is, in all seriousness, one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. I watch so many films they tend to blend together, and normally I’m not a fan of these types of flicks, but this is just one of those movies that caught me completely by surprise.

Whip It is another great launching vehicle for Ellen Page who just has success written all over her. While the rest of the cast is pretty lackluster, you’re really watching the film for Bliss and her story.

I will warn you right now: this movie has an inane amount of both male nudity and chicks that should not be getting naked for any reason what so ever. There isn’t any real way of putting the previous statement any more bluntly, so sorry if I seem harsh. I have an incredible stomach and I’ve only gotten sick maybe once in twenty-plus years of seeing movies, but Cabin Fever 2 made me violently ill.

I have some friends who whenever I bring up even the slightest notion of “The Simpsons” they say the same thing “Man, that show jumped the shark years ago, haven’t they done everything already?” To answer the question, yes they pretty much […]

Once more, the series gets a little bit staler. While some of the traps are creative (even making use of some classic ones), it’s all too obvious how the film will end. Granted, there are some surprises in who is related to who but for the most part as the viewer you can see several minutes ahead to the outcome and become bored with the same formula over and over.

I was absolutely enthralled with 2006’s Paris, I Love You as it beautifully showcased the City of Love, Lights, Dreams, Art, et cetera while also giving us stories that made use of each precious minute allotted; and I had high hopes for the follow-up, New York, I Love You where we get to see the City That Never Sleeps. Unfortunately even though the directors try their best to showcase New York, the stories never quite hit the emotional levels (be it for comedy or drama) that I felt with Paris.

The movie wasn’t all bad though, as maybe I’m just being a little too critical. I had fun watching the movie, as usual, since Seagal just runs around for 90 minutes basically killing everyone he meets.

Spinning off a movie into a TV show is not an easy task. Sometimes it works (“MASH”, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), but many times they fail (“Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, “Ferris Bueller” among many others). But here’s the thing – when you opt to try and make a successful movie and turn it into a TV Series it’s best to do so at the height of its fame – and this case it would be 1999/2000.

I don’t even know where to begin with Triangle. The movie’s premise is completely different than what the flick turns out to be, which aggravated me right off the bat. You figure out shortly into the film that the killer is one of the group and then the movie turns out to be nothing of what it really should have been.
