My Thoughts On Angelina Jolie’s Double Mastectomy

I applaud Angelina Jolie and any other woman for taking the necessary medical steps to live a longer and healthier life for themselves and their family. Cancer is a HUGE deal so don’t think I am making light of it, but if I hear one more person give her kudos for having her breasts removed because she’s considered one of Read More …

Movie Review: Melancholia

Melancholia first came across my radar because of the hoopla surrounding Kirsten Dunst appearing nude in the film. I believe that was a ploy to get people interested in this under the radar film, but the plot is what interested me most. The first time I watched Melancholia the beginning slow motion sequence bored me to death, but as the movie Read More …

Movie Review: Red Tails

Red Tails is a very important film, one that almost never saw the light of day because Hollywood did not know how to market a film with an all Black cast. You market a film with all brown people the same way you would market any other action film. Hollywood is certainly not having a problem shoving a War Horse Read More …

Movie Review: Conan The Barbarian

I’m really not sure why Hollywood felt the need to remake this one because it wasn’t earth shattering or anything very special about it. Lots of killing and blood, of course, but other than that it was just OK. I thought the plot (finding scattered bone pieces) was ridiculous because they should have been destroyed in the first place. Yea, I Read More …

Movie Review: Abduction

Taylor Lautner is hot! He has proven that he will have a career outside of the werewolf in the Twilight series. Taylor is the main reason I wanted to see this film, but that wasn’t enough to make this movie outstanding. It is a good film and action packed, but the acting is corny and the plot sometimes predictable. I Read More …

Movie Review: Apollo 18

Apollo 18 is the latest Hollywood attempt at a truth telling documentary style film. The official description of the film reads: Decades-old found footage from NASA’s abandoned Apollo 18 mission, where two (it’s actually three) American astronauts were sent on a secret expedition, reveals the reason the U.S. has never returned to the moon (Source). Apollo 18 was just OK. Read More …

Movie Review: Sucker Punch

A sucker punch is described as an unexpected blow. Sucker Punch, the film, is all about women giving men unexpected blows (no pun intended. Really!), but the film also seems to be an excuse for women to be sexy badasses. I’m not mad about that fact, but other than that and the exciting visual effects this film doesn’t have much Read More …

Movie Review: Red Riding Hood

Whenever Gary Oldman is in a film, it’s sure to be a little bit odd. Red Riding Hood has unwanted arranged marriages, half-sibling incest, and women lying about their babies daddy mixed in with The Big Bad Wolf and Grandma. Catherine Hardwicke, the director of the Twilight Series is also the director of this film and Leonardo DiCaprio is one Read More …

Satan + Marilyn Monroe = Dangerous Lee?

A Cross Between Satan and Marilyn Monroe? “You’re just wonderful, a Satanic Marilyn Monroe for the new age!” – Act of Dog   This quote comes from a Gothic person and it was meant as a compliment, so I will take it as that. It’s something that I’ve never been told before, so when I first read it I was Read More …
