Killing Season (2013) Review

  The premise here is interesting, the talent is extraordinary, the action and atmosphere is fine, but the end result is one of the most befuddling messes I can long remember. The premise is this; 20 years after the Bosnian war, a retired US soldier now living out in the Appalachian countryside finds a strange… Continue reading Killing Season (2013) Review

Ms. 45 (1981) Review

It is probably not something I should admit to anyone aside a therapist, but I grew up absolutely loving the hell out of late 70s/early 80s hard boiled revenge movies such as Death Wish and the like. Now as an adult, I occasionally stumble across a title I somehow missed during those years. Ms. 45… Continue reading Ms. 45 (1981) Review

Security Review

‘Security’ is a movie that aims low and stays on target. Antonio Banderas, far removed from his days as the guitar case gunslinger in Desperado, plays a two dimensional archetype—a former soldier, struggling to find work to see his family who are forced to live two states away. The soldier finds work as an overnight… Continue reading Security Review

Kill Bill Volume 2 Review

Kill Bill Volume 2 is kind of the yin to Kill Bill Volume 1’s yang (or vice versa). Unlike the first film which was pretty much one action sequence after another with brief moments to set up the next ones, this movie stops occasionally to let the characters---even the villains have their moments of reverence… Continue reading Kill Bill Volume 2 Review

No Country For Old Men Review

I was a little younger when I first saw this movie, and I did not fully appreciate it to the extent I do now. I was watching it expecting a satisfying formulaic action movie, and of course, if you watch No Country For Old Men expecting that, you are going to walk out pissed. In… Continue reading No Country For Old Men Review

While in prison Statham’s character befriends two geniuses who teach him how to win at virtually any kind of confidence game in existence. While… Continue reading Revolver Review

Slow West Review

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… Continue reading Slow West Review
