Many questions race through one’s mind upon watching Robin Hood: Ghosts of Sherwood. Questions such as “Why?”, “Who thought this was a good idea?” and “Did I lose a bet?”




REVIEW: “Star Trek”

I admit, Star Trek was one of the few bandwagons that I did not board. Sure, I watched Star Trek, never the original but several of the later series, never regularly. Thanks to “Star Trek” of the nondescript name, I am now willing to go back and watch them all today. No spoilers this time,  (that means its good enough for me to go out of my way to avoid ruining it)! -v

Once again, lured into theaters by the promise of action stars of my youth taking a good thrashing on screen, I bring you the fourth movie in the Indiana Jones series. My general rule is that I try to avoid spoilers on movies still in theaters and that I would recommend seeing, but this is a film that is difficult to review without giving at least something away. Therefore, there may be spoilers ahead. Hint: just look at the poster.)

he gonna jump you!


REVIEW: “Speed Racer”

(“Speed Racer”, simultaneously a great icon of 60s animation, while a not-so-great icon of quality in animation history. For a movie based on a cartoon made in the sixties about a boy who races cars to change the world and save his family, I’d say this film adaptation is damn good. Given the original material, “Speed Racer” far exceeded expectations. I saw it twice. -v)

(This is a movie that stars Jet Li and Jackie Chan. The two biggest martial arts movie stars to come out of the orient in the last 30 years. Together. Does it honestly matter what the movie is about? Please, people, let us all admit that we’re all here to see one thing — SHOWDOWN! -v)
