Fantastic Four (2015)

"Fantastic Four" is an origins story, a genesis account of how the famed four became, well, fantastic. They are all here: Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Johnny Storm (Michael B.

But there is still quite a bit of violence which includes multiple bombings, multiple killings with machine guns, and a guy [...]

Mr. and Mrs. Smith

"Mr. and Mrs. Smith" reminds me a lot of the 1985 film "Prizzi's Honor" starring Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner. It's the same M.O. but with a few different twists and updating. The tagline for "Prizzi's Honor is "Hired killers by day. Devoted lovers by night. Until they found their next [...]

xXx: State of the Union

I was wondering how they came up with the name XXX. After viewing this sequel, I determined that it quite possibly stands for X-tra X-treme X-plosions. The last time I saw that much stuff blow up I was with my buddies on July 4th. This movie was a hundred minutes of explosions, gunfire, and [...]
