Written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore who wrote the first (and the good) Hangover film, it follows three old high school friends…

Evil Dead

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceBXUyuv4Q0 The thought of a re-make of a beloved horror classic is itself getting tired and old.

Iron Man 3

  Tony Stark is back in the third instalment in the Iron Man series and being the first film to follow The Avengers (still leaving out the Assemble) in the Marvel franchise, it better not drop the ball. What is even more important to me, is that this is the new Shane Black movie. The…

Olympus Has Fallen

  God I miss the 90’s. Remember when action films where straight up, unapologetic action films rather than über serious  Bourne like spy thrillers or another superhero/comic book movies.

Spring Breakers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVvn9T6bqls   The new film by Harmony Korine doesn’t hold back on its exploitative themes with the the sight of young adults partying hard on a beach flashing breasts, leering into the camera pouring beer over one another in a slow motion to a head thumping Skrillex music. Taking a hard look at the culture of spring break, watching college kids go on a…
