Kick-Ass 2: Chan’s Movie Review

Let me preface this by saying the last time I saw Kick-Ass was when it was in theaters… which was in April 2010.  I wasn’t 100% on all the details (read: maybe ~5%) but I did remember I enjoyed it greatly, so I wanted to see Kick-Ass 2. The way this movie starts off makes […]

MTV Movie Awards = Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer

Hello lovelies!  While I don’t have cable and even when I did rarely watched MTV, one good point of tonight’s MTV Movie Awards was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer!  It’s definitely phenomenal, but I was a little disappointed by the scenes they showed. Hopefully we’ll see more since we have until November 22nd until […]

The Amazing Spider-Man: Chan’s Movie Review

I was lucky enough to snag private screening tickets to this movie tonight, and I am glad for every single minute I waited in line to see it. The Amazing Spider-Man is an attempt to rejuvenate the franchise while also using a different universe in order to capture an alternate view of Spider-Man.  The main […]

Thor’s Day (aka Nikki catches up on superhero movies)

I know, I know – fans across the Internet are saying Nikki, Thor’s Day is Thursday! and believe me, I’m well aware. But today was when I decided to sit down with my very first Redbox movie rental and continue catching up on my superheroes. I’ll be joining the masses and seeing the Avengers in the coming […]

John Carter: Chan’s Review

The Disney-produced John Carter, based on “A Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs written in 1917 (yowza), did not fare as well as expected in the box office this weekend ($30.6 mil domestically on a $250 mil budget) and seems to be getting mediocre (at best) reviews from a lot of other places, but […]

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance … why did I fall for it?

The first Ghost Rider was subpar at best, but I figured why not give it a second chance, after all it’s by different writers and different directors. This was a mistake. There was no continuity; it felt like fast forward, rewinding, then stopping randomly and watching a scene, rinse and repeat.  The monologs to explain […]

Already Excited for May! – The Avengers Movie

Marvel movies are abundant these days and I couldn’t be happier about it: some come out bad, some good, some AWESOME, and some you pretend you never heard about (cough cough… Wolverine: Origins).  Personally I am biting my nails over the upcoming Avengers.  Robert Downey Jr. was badass as Iron Man, and Chris Evans was […]

At first it is a… what??  Then it is an hmmm?  And lastly: yea let’s do this!  This is on my “to watch list.”  The graphics look good, the concept definitely twisted, and who can resist slave-freeing Lincoln? Give it a looky-loo at GeeksAreSexy.Net: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Keep in mind the movie is based […]

Chronicle – Movie Review

First off, I have to mention the unique style this movie was shot in: starting in the first person and moving to a mix of third and first towards the climax and end.  This has been attempted before with horror movies (The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield), action movies (The Bourne Ultimatum), and many more […]

Conan the Barbarian 3D – Movie Review

With a stroke of luck I was able to attend a special screening of Conan the Barbarian in 3D before the movie hits theaters this Friday, 8/19/11.  To be completely honest, I have no recollection of the original Conan story.  My girlfriend Calais that went with me remembered bits and pieces but both of us […]
