Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Review

  A movie about which the best thing that can be said is that it wasn’t as bad as expected, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not offensively bad but it is not much good either.  Taking a cue from the gross misunderstanding found in the Transformers movies, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles focuses on intrepid cub […]

Somehow longer than the last installment, Transformers: Age of Extinction is absolutely interminable and mind numbing with very little to engage or recommend.

Eschewing typical super hero movie formula Amazing Spider-man 2 delivers an experience much more authentic of comics and offers the most character accurate take of Spider-man yet.

Upping the ante in every way possible, the Raid 2 is easily the best martial arts/action movie I have ever seen.

A near perfect love letter to fans of the series, Veronica Mars is also a compelling enough story and mystery to stand on its own. On the cusp of landing a big lawyer job in New York at a prestigious firm, Veronica Mars (Kristin Bell) is drawn back home to Neptune, CA when ex-boyfriend Logan […]

Pompeii Movie Review

A poor man’s amalgamation of several other movies, Pomepeii is poorly written mess that feels almost entirely pointless. Writing a plot summary seems redundant because before you walk in you’ve seen this movie several times before but Pompeii tells the story of Milo the Celt (Kit Harington), a slave turned Gladiator, whose entire village was […]

RoboCop (2014) Movie Review

Even with  story problems, poorly executed effects, lack of a compelling villain and lackluster action, the worst sin committed by the remake of RoboCop is that is very, very boring. In the year 2028, Omnicorp has robot peace keeping drones deployed in strife ridden areas of the world but the one market they cannot crack […]
