Desperado Review

Desperado is the sequel to the independent critical darling “El Mariachi” and a prequel to the epic “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”. Of the three movies this one is by far my favorite, even though I know Mariachi is the one I am probably supposed to like the most. I do respect it immensely… Continue reading Desperado Review

Reindeer Games Review

This is one of my favorite horrible movies. It has every bad movie cliché in the book, a ton of gnarly character actors, questionable acting, awful writing, pointless plot twists galore etc, and is centered around a bunch of guys dressed like Santa trying to rob a casino. What’s not to like? To attempt to… Continue reading Reindeer Games Review

50 Shades of Grey Review

The young impressionable English lit major (note: only female authors who type with one hand down their pants normally have the audacity to make their heroine an English lit major) Anastasia Steele begins a tortured romance with reclusive millionaire Christian Grey in a movie bad enough to make me reconsider my stance on eugenics. In… Continue reading 50 Shades of Grey Review

Death Wish V: The Face of Fear Review

Paul Kersey had the worst damn luck of perhaps any movie character in history. I would say tied with John McLane, but all McLane had to worry about was getting trapped in the occasional building. Kersey repeatedly has loved ones mowed down in gruesome life scarring ways. At the time of this movie he is… Continue reading Death Wish V: The Face of Fear Review

Death Wish 4: The Crackdown Review

Paul Kersey is headed west, again for the fourth installment of the Death Wish series. This time around there is a bit more plot, but still just as much action including what is admittedly a pretty awesome finale involving a bazooka. That said, Bronson really started looking to old and worn out for the part… Continue reading Death Wish 4: The Crackdown Review

Death Wish 3 Review

Death Wish 3 is as perfect a bad movie as I can imagine. It is completely over the top and makes absolutely no pretenses as to what it is about. Paul Kersey is far removed from the meek and mild architect from the first movie and has now become a professional “neighborhood population control expert”.… Continue reading Death Wish 3 Review

Death Wish 2 Review

Death Wish goes west is probably a more appropriate title to this sequel. As a kid in love with macho badasses Charles Bronson was, of course, one of my heroes. And in retrospect it is Bronson’s presence alone that saves this one from being a nearly complete dud, that and cheesy lines every now and… Continue reading Death Wish 2 Review

Death Wish Review

This is unapologetic male revenge fantasy, made all the more powerful and terrifying by how gritty and realistic it is portrayed. The character of Paul Kersey is not the sort of man you expect to see played by Charles Bronson, at first that is. He’s a quiet architect whose politics definitely lean toward the anti-gun… Continue reading Death Wish Review
