Writing a review for a film of this magnitude can be difficult. Being the third film in a trilogy, the final piece of the ongoing story and having two fantastic films before it makes it hard to NOT have expectations going in. With all of the clips, TV spots, photos, trailers, teasers and anything else [...]
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.
When I first read about the Roger Corman produced, SyFy Saturday night original film, Piranhaconda, the first thing that popped in my head was “UGH!

Action? Check. Science fiction? Check. Space setting? Check. Hot guy carrying a gun, blowing stuff up / blasting caps in people? Double check. Call me easy, but when I go to the movies for sheer mindless entertainment, that’s my check list. Don’t feed me any of that girlie-chic-flick-gooey-lovey-dovey stuff. No siree. I want my mindless [...]

There isn’t much mention of Io, his wife, aside from the fact that she [...]
There is something really cool about watching a movie where military operators infiltrate the enemies backyard and takes care of business. This normally involves explosions, hand to hand combat scenes, high-tech gear, cool hand signals to their teammates, and guns. Lots and lots of guns. As far as I’m concerned, movies with hot guys blowing [...]
