I have been chomping at the bit to get this review done because I couldn’t wait to tell the world how rad G.I. Joe Retaliation was. Especially considering just how long we’ve been waiting for this film to come out. Originally slated to come out last summer, it was then pulled and re-scheduled for Spring. [...]
You have reached the Film Reviews page. Here you’ll find reviews of films new and old that you can see on screens big and small. You’ll soon learn that I’ll watch pretty much anything. Hollywood blockbusters, science fiction, indie films, drama, action… you name it. If I see it I’ll write about it and you can read about it here.

The road to getting the latest Bourne film on the big screen was definitely a bumpy one. First, it was going to be another film centered around Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne, with Paul Greengrass on board to direct.
