Brick Mansions Movie Review

Coming to watch Brick Mansions I had high expectations, not because of the film itself but because it was Paul Walkers last film he ever shot. From the get go it looked like it was something that was actually worth my while, seeing Lino jump around all over the place showing what he can do. Unfortunately right than something horrible happened, the local Chef aka the self proclaimed gangster RZA showed up.

Divergent Movie Review

I will have to admit, I didn't really want to see Divergent. From the trailer I got a feeling that this is going to be some cheap copy of the Hunger Games molded into freaking Twilight, only without the vampires. Like most readers of this blog remember I really hated Twilight. I guess from this point my expectations were not really high for this film, only after a couple of friends of my asked me if I saw Divergent? My immediate reaction was no, why would I watch it. Divergent just didn’t look appealing enough. But I was in minority and they convinced me to check it out because it was pretty good and those guys rarely like the movies this days. So I had no choice, I needed to see what’s all the fuss was all about.

In The Blood Movie Review

In The Blood is one of the most irregular films that are out there today. This style of a female rough, tough and uncompromising hero character is not something you see every day. Sure there was one girl in the 80's and 90's who raised hell, that was Cynthia Rothrock. But ever since she disappeared (I know that Cynthia keeps on doing movies but they are irrelevant) we didn't get to see a female action star that could fight the in this kind of a style and bring it to the toughest guys on the block, well until now.
You can't go tougher Gina Carano, this former MMA professional fighter burst into the movie scene with appearances in movies like Haywire and Fast & Furious 6 but only in In The Blood she got to be the soul star of her own film.

The Last Ship Pilot Review

Finally yesterday I got to check out The Last Ship pilot after I had the episode for a while. the reason I had it and didn't watch it was because I had little faith in the show of becoming something more than 1 season flop. the trailer was not really promising and beside Rhona Mitra there was nothing in this show I wanted to see. The trailer was weak at best and was the main reason for my "excitement".

The Rogue Prince, or, the King's Brother Review

The Rogue Prince, or, the King's Brother by George R. R. Martin

it took me a long time to put my hands on this considerably new graphic novel by George R. R. Martin but now when I got it. I finished reading The Rogue Prince, or, the King's Brother in one night and I can review this graphic novel like I did with the Dunk and Egg tales.

The Rogue Prince, or, the King's Brother graphic novel just like The Tales of Dunk and Egg is completely different than the ASOIAF books, on the other hand it doesn't really resemble any of the 3 Dunk and Egg tales either. The Tales of Dunk and Egg focused mostly on the two main characters from the title itself with minimal contact to the royal Targaryen family every once in a while. There was a significant presence of the Targaryens in The Hedge Knight and a small attendance in The Mystery Knight but it was nothing compared to what we got to read about in the Rogues.

3 Days to Kill Movie Review

Amber Heard 3 Days to Kill
Amber Heard as Vivi
In the last few years Kevin Costner's career was in a pickle. Costner disappeared from the mainstream movie scenery for a long time, doing small and unimportant films in the last decade. The middle aged actor struggled to find roles that fitted his age, until last year (appearing in Man of Steel 2013). in 3 Days to Kill we saw the glorified actor finally find a character that fitted him like a glove.

In 3 Days to Kill Costner is a middle aged CIA agent who is diagnosed with cancer. After the deadly decease strikes at the most inappropriate time and causes Costner's character to fail the important mission to take out the bad guy - The Wolf: Ethan Renner (Costner) gets hit passes out in a critical moment screws up the entire operation and is forced to retire from the CIA. Ethan Renner decides to get his last things in order prior to leaving this world, he decides that he needs to make things right with his teenage daughter whom he sees rarely, achieving this goal would be a lot more difficult than he initially imagined.
