You’re Doing It Wrong — TRON: Legacy Film Review

Make no bones about it, TRON: Legacy is not a good film. It’s not even that entertaining of a movie. But it’s hard to pinpoint just exactly why there’s such disappointment with this franchise cash-in. There have been worse, less intelligent attempts at nostalgia milking.

Wu-Tang Saga (2010) Film Review

Bodyguards and Assassins (2009) Film Review

Director: Teddy Chen Hong Kong, 2009 Bodyguards and Assassins is a long film. Too long. It’s about 45 minutes too long. It’s also overwrought. There’s a lot of grown men crying about pride and integrity. Things that matter to a lot of people, but not stuff we as the audience particularly care about. In the...Read...
