Sucker Punch – A story about Schizophrenia and escapism

In the unnamed 1960s, the doll-faced Babydoll, played by Emily Browning (The Uninvited), accidentally shoots and wounds her evil, molesting step father. No problem; she acts in self-defense. But a stray bullet also offs her little sister. Ooops. Off Babydoll goes to Victorian, thunderstorm-swept Lennox House for the Mentally Insane, hilariously located in Brattleboro, Vermont….

Dragged across concrete or the story of a cop-out

I was pretty excited to see “Dragged across concrete” with Mel Gibson. I had it on my watch list for about a month and tonight I decided to see it along with “Red Joan”. I go in and when the warning screen greets me I giggle with enthusiasm not felt since The Purge first came… Read more »

Why Atomic Blonde was not the Bomb

I wanted to see a chick John Wick and I was sooo disappointed! Charlize Theron does a mediocre accent in whatever language she is speaking in (German and British English too)! The movie is not the, “Hyper Retro 80’s Stylized Jane Wick” that the advertisement pitches. That’s about 10% of the movie. That part was… Read more »

The Dark Tower Movie * The Beams still stand, barely

I just got back from the 19:19 showing of The Dark Tower. Guess what, folks? It didn’t suck. I loved it. (Even though it scored a meagre 19% on Rotten Tomatoes) For those of you who are determined to not go for whatever reasons, I pity you. You are missing another turn of the wheel…. Read more »
