action flicks

Drive Angry (REVIEW)

At this point in his career Nicolas Cage has fallen into the same category at Tom Cruise. There's no doubt he's got talent, movies like "Leaving Las Vegas" are proof enough of that. But at some point he took a hard left and now it's almost impossible to take him seriously. "Drive Angry" is a throw back to the late 80's and early 90's action movies a lot of us grew up watching and if it had been made back then it probably would have been taken a lot more seriously, or at the very least, we'd still be in a Pre-"The Wicker Man" Nic Cage world.

"Gamer" Kind of Turns me On

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not really an action movie guy. Yes, I loved "Star Trek" and "The Dark Night," but I treat most action flicks with the same indifference that I would a romantic comedy staring Dane Cook. The real standouts in the genre to me over the years have been the "Con Air"s of the bunch, who embraced the ridiculousness of the genre and exceeded everyone's standards for entertaining hyperbole. I have a feeling that the upcoming film "Gamer" might provide just the sort of action experience that I've been looking for.
