Wrath of the Titans - Movie Review


Thanks to the unbelievable success of "Avatar", which came out in December of 2009 and crushed box office records, the "Clash of the Titans" remake that was set to be released just a couple months later was rushed through a 3D post conversion so the movie studio could capitalize on the sudden popularity of the technology.

When the movie was released in early 2010, it opened to huge success, but audiences quickly turned on it due to a really bad 3D transfer that gave people headaches more than it wow'd them. For "Wrath of the Titans" to succeed, this problem would have to be eliminated.

Avatar - Movie Review



Easily the most hyped movie of any 2009 release partly due to the fact that this film and world was created by Mr. “King of the World” himself, James Cameron. He seems to carry a lot of baggage and expectation to everything he does although after making the highest grossing movie of all time in Titanic, you can’t really blame people for the reaction.

Aside from all of that, Cameron continues to put his heart and soul in to every film that he releases dating back to such great films as The Abyss, Aliens, Terminator 2, and even the Dark Angel TV series which starred a young and still unknown Jessica Alba.

Man on a Ledge - Movie Review


Once upon a time there was an actor named Sam Worthington who, despite playing major roles in some serious blockbusters (Avatar) and performing admirably in more dramatic and complex roles (The Debt), never seems to get any respect from movie critics. With 'Man on a Ledge', this will most likely continue even though he, along with a great supporting cast, delivers a top notch thriller that was most unexpected.

The Debt - Movie Review



The debt is a classic tale of espionage and intrigue set primarily in 1960's Berlin and is full of suspense along with several surprising twists and turns. You have three reluctant but extremely dedicated heroes and their brilliantly mad adversary who is at times on the level of Hannibal Lechter when it comes to creepy villainy. I enjoyed watching this movie as it doesn't try to force feed the story to the audience and also does a great job of weaving through plot lines that are revealed over two different time lines.
