Warrior Review: A New And Updated Version Of “Rocky”

Warrior is a new and updated version of “Rocky” that gives you three underdogs to cheer for and will make you feel that nothing is impossible. Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton, and Nick Nolte play the parts of a family that has been torn apart by divorce. Nolte, who plays Paddy Conlon, is the perfect “Father with Demons”. Hardy, who plays Tommy Hardin, is a “war hero” who didn’t get recognition for his bravery and goes AWOL. Edgerton, who plays Brendon Conlon, is a mild mannered school teacher who fights part time.

Colombiana Review: Mediocre Action With One Hot Babe

Colombiana is a typical “revenge” themed action film that has only one true saving grace, which is Zoe Saldana and her smokin’ hot body. The plot is simple. Cataleya, played by Saldana, watches as her parents are murdered by a mobster. She grows up and becomes a hit man herself who is just waiting for the right time to avenge her parents death.

Saldana makes…

Conan The Barbarian Review: WOW! Finally A Great Sequel!

Conan the Barbarian is a movie I was waiting to see as I am a big fan of the original. I was ready with my “critic” hat on because I figured this would be just another Hollywood remake. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This new Conan takes us on a little darker path. Of course, Conan still sees his family slaughtered but instead of going out for just revenge, this new Conan is not just a slave who has no master. The new Conan goes off on an adventure that includes a little “lawlessness”. Conan is shot in sensational…
