I rented the Chronicles of Riddick Assault on Dark Athena game and while playing it I remembered how much I love the character of Riddick and decided to stay up until 4 A.M. watching Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick. I forgot how much this movie rocks, there are so many greate scenes and fantastic special effects. I just now had to look up how the shoulder dislocation scene was done because of how real it looks, apparently it’s because Vin Diesel actually did it for the crew while holding…read more
The Spirit is another Frank Miller screenplay (300, Sin City) that is shot in a visually different way (mostly black and white with hyper reds and brilliants whites in unusual places).

Some of the names that take me out of the movie immediately are Sand Serif (Eva Mendes, who apparently has a perfect…read more
I have actually seen all the Punisher movies they have made, and they are all pretty bad (although I liked the last Punisher movie).

It’s a little bit of the old ultra-violence, and really nothing I feel I needed to…read more
Bomb It is a documentary about the rise of graffiti artists in Philidelphia, New York, and around the world. It was very interesting to see the roots and some of the amazing art that people can put on a wall overnight. I think it’s unfortunate that some of them feel it’s not proper art, and others that feel it’s not right unless it’s done illegally, also the violence that has surrounded this art seems completely unnecessary. Summary: If you are interested in graffiti then find this movie, it’s pretty interesting.
Bangkok Dangerous stars Nicolas Cage as an assassin who is about to give up the job but wants to do 4 more kills all in Bangkok before he does. At the very beginning of the movie he says you need to know when to get out, as soon as you think about getting out, you get out. Then he proceeds to think about getting out and instead takes on 4 more kills. Cage tries (I don’t think he has a choice really) to play the most wooden, uncaring assassin he…read more
