Boy Wonder

This is a brilliant Indy psychological thriller. One of those movies that you can't say to much about with out ruining anything. So I'm going to keep this short. As a kid Sean witnesses his mother brutally murdered right in front of him. He grows up obsessed with finding out who his mother's killer is.

There is really something wrong with the entertainment industry when a movie like this doesn't get a wide theater release. I wasn't sure what to expect with title and was more then surprised. This was just great all around. The story is gripping it pulled me in from the beginning and just wouldn't let go. It keeps you thinking through out the movie just wondering and itching to find out what is going to happen next.The cast was excellent some great acting from every one in this. Caleb Steinmeyer's role as Sean was just flawless and powerful. The fight scenes were also well done and very believable. I really can't say enough to give this movie the justice it deserves. This is a must see for anyone who enjoys good movies!

Sherlock Holmes A Game Of Shadows

A bloody good time! This is a rare case where the sequel out does the  original. Sherlock Holmes is use to being the smartest being able to easily out wit his adversaries. But this time he might have found his match with the evil genius of Professor James Moriarty. Holmes and Watson must once again team up to stop the criminal master mind's plan by trying to rewrite history.

This was a clever mix of action and comedy that results into a really fun ride. Lots of laughs while I was on the edge of my seat for most of the movie. Just like the first Sherlock Holmes movie this has a great dark over all feel to it. Which nicely balances the use of comedy in the movie. The fight scenes are really well choreographed and really fun to watch. I also enjoyed the great use of slow motion special effects in this. I really thought it added to the movie. The cast in this was excellent! Robert Downey Jr. is really amazing as Sherlock Holmes it is easily my favorite role he has ever done. Once again I was totally impressed by Noomi Rapace as an actress. She was a great addition to the cast and after only seeing her in two movies I'm looking forward to seeing much more of her in the future. This is just a really well done movie over all. I highly recommend checking this out!

John Carter

Another theatrical bomb that turns out to be a better movie then most the blockbuster hits. Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs book A Prince of Mars Disney's John Carter is a fun ride. In 1868 a Civil War veteran John Carter is asked to rejoin the army. When he refuses to do so he finds him self imprisoned. Breaking out of jail Carter is chased by the army and then Native Americans. Finding refuge in a cave he runs into a strange man who attacks him. Killing his attacker he finds a medallion. Grabbing the medallion Carter is transported to a strange new world only to find himself in the middle of a war with it's strange inhabitants.
This was a really fun Sci-fi movie to watch. It has a really cool story and some amazing special effects. I also loved the great cast in this and it has some really good acting. It was cool seeing a ton of people I enjoyed from other movies and TV shows. I only wish they would have given Brian Cranston(Breaking Bad) a larger role in this. This movie was well worth checking out and a fun ride from beginning to end. It's a shame this bombed in it's theatre run I would love to see a sequel to this one. I definitely recommend checking this movie out!

God Bless America

Way more then I ever expected from this movie! Frank is fed up with the stupidity of American culture. Fired from his job and diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor he just doesn't care anymore. Joined by an unlikely accomplice who shares his views. They go on a killing spree taking out reality T.V. stars and any one they find repugnant in society today.
  This is a hilarious dark comedy with a point. It had me laughing and really thinking about life in general. It speaks to you the viewer and you can relate to every thing that happens in this movie with our society today. This has a really great story, cast, and acting. Joel Murray gives an amazing and powerful performance as Frank. Tara Lynne Barr is also amazing in her role as Roxy. I am truly impressed with Bobcat Goldthwait as a writer and director and look forward to seeing more movies from him soon.This is a definite must see movie!

Underworld Awakening

The worst Underworld movie yet. Same basic story as all the other Underworld movies Vampires vs. Lycan. Except this one is set in the future where the humans know both exist and are experimenting on them. From the beginning scene where Selene breaks out of her frozen chamber in the future I could just tell this was going to be bad.Why would you try and contain a dangerous Vampire in something entirely made out of glass? Why would Selene even bother to try and hack the lock for the door when she can just burst through the floor to get out in the first place. This movie was so badly written it's laughable. It just keeps getting worse as the movie goes on. The CGI is so over used nothing in this movie looks real.They should just save money hiring actors and animate the whole thing. It would probably look better over all. The effects are also so bad it looks like a slightly better version of something you would see on the Syfy channel. I struggled to finish watching this if it was any longer then the 89 minute run time I don't think I would have made it. The only redeeming thing in this is Kate Beckinsale looking hot in her skin tight leather suit and even that's getting old. I wouldn't recommend watching this unless you are a die hard Underworld fan and even then I'm not so sure.

I grew up on the Alien movies and they are a huge favorite of mine. With that being said I went into this a little worried about what I was going to see. But I couldn't have asked for anything more. The story in this is complex so I'm going to keep explaining it short. I don't want to ruin any thing for those who haven't seen it. A group of scientists discover a cave painting with a constellation in it. The same constellation appeared on different paintings from different civilizations through out history. None of the civilizations were ever in contact with each other. The scientists believe the constellation is a invitation or a map to the origin of human life. It's found that the constellation actually lines up to a group of planets which the people who painted them would have no way of actually seeing it with the technology available at those times. A few years after the discovery a group of scientists are put together on space ship Prometheus to travel through space to investigate the theory and search for the origin human race. They then discover one of these planets could actually support life and might just find more then they bargain for.

 I was blown away by what I saw. The story was great and very complex. The movie kept me thinking from beginning to end. The cast was just awesome and the acting was great. Especially Noomi Rapace I've never seen her in anything before and she really got my attention in this with a great performance. The visuals and special effects in this were so amazing a good mix of practical effects and CGI. As a fan of the original Alien I loved this. Even if you aren't a fan of the original this is a great sci-fi movie on it's own. I highly recommend seeing this one in the theater! It's one of those movies if you don't see it on the big screen you will regret it later.

Piranha 3DD

One hell of a bloody good time! Prehistoric piranha come back to terrorize a small town again. Except this time they get into the public water system. Just like Piranha 3D don't go into this looking for a serious movie. It's meant to be goofy fun and that's just what it is. I laughed hysterically through out this movie. The cast was freaking great in this. I never thought I'd ever say this but I actually liked David Hasselhoff in something. He was so damn funny and kind of stole the show here. This had tons of blood and boobs and some really cool kill scenes so what's not to like here. Definitely check this movie out it's a damn good time!

The Return of Doctor X

This is the suppose to be sequel to Doctor X starring Humphrey Bogart in his first and only role in a horror film. It really has nothing to do with the first Doctor X. So if you are planning on viewing these it really doesn't matter what order you watch them. A newspaper reporter Walter Barnett lands a interview with actress Angela Merrova. He arrives to the interview only to find her dead . After reporting the incident to the paper the actress then arrives the next day threatening to sue the paper.Barnett then looses his job over the matter. Determined to find out more about the strange happenings he teams up with a doctor and  decides to investigate. Only to find a connection between the actress and a strange doctor, and a group of murders in which the victims are drained of all there blood.

 I went into this movie not knowing to much about it which is why I'm trying not to give to much away about the plot. I think it helped me to enjoy it more. I loved the original story in this and the acting was just great. I heard Bogart never personally liked his role in this movie. But I thought he was very effective and creepy in his role in this. It made me wish he did more horror films in his time. I enjoyed this a little more then the first Doctor X but both of them were very enjoyable. I definitely recommend checking this out.
