Release: Friday, March 9, 2012 [Redbox] I expected a little more out of Alec Trevelyan in this new Bond-like outing. Unfortunately, there were no clever quips about how they are about to destroy their targets in this one. A British Secret Service agent finds himself on a questionable, albeit dangerous assignment: stopping the men (man?) responsibleContinue reading “Cleanskin”

Spring Breakers

Release: Friday, March 22, 2013 [Theater] Spring Break forever, b*tches… This being the mantra of Harmony Korine’s new movie, Spring Breakers begs but just one question: is it hot — or not?

Too bad the end result didn’t comeContinue reading “Oz, The Great and Powerful”
