Movie Review: Doctor Strange

This movie was a cross between a kung fu flick and an M. C. Escher nightmare, plus a touch of Groundhog Day. Doctor Steven Strange is a brilliant surgeon who loses the use of his hands after a car accident. When modern medicine fails to give him back his hands, he resorts to finding an

Movie Review: Terminator Genisys

I loved the original Terminator and several of the sequels. This one though, I wasn’t sure what to expect. This one had the same flavor as the originals, but more of a romance theme and quite a bit more humor than the originals. I did get some good laughs out of it. Watching Arnold fight his

Movie Review: John Wick

I was told to watch this movie and being the obedient person that I am…I put it off. Saturday I finally watched it while doing laundry, because I needed something to do that didn’t involve working. It’s a 2014 release, so I don’t want to hear any complaints about spoilers. You’ve had more than enough

Movie Review: Voiceless

Victor Frankenstein (2015) was one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. The story strays from the original, but adds an interesting moral component. The attention to detail in the costuming and setting was phenomenal. As was the casting. After having watched Radcliffe as Harry Potter, I was worried that he wouldn’t be

Movie Review: Iron Man

You may remember that when I was out in New York City, Declan Finn tried to get me to watch this movie. I, of course, fell asleep within 5 minutes of the start. Completely on accident, I discovered that my local library had a copy. So, I finally watched Iron Man and I liked it.

Movie Review: The Last Witch Hunter

On the surface, this movie looked promising. I loved Vin Diesel in Riddick and Triple X. It looked like it might be dark fantasy along the lines of The Brothers Grimm (2005) or Van Helsing (2004). So, I finally took the time to watch it. I am sorry to say, I am sadly disappointed. The
