Killing Them Softly [2012] ★★

I’m a bit late reviewing this movie, but having seen it a while ago I can safely say that it was one of the most disappointing films of 2012. It isn’t a requirement that you like a movie’s central characters, but it usually helps develop rooting interest. That’s […]

Zero Dark Thirty [2012] ★★

Finally Hollywood has produced a movie that dramatizes the hunt for Osama Bin Laden. Lol as if you didn’t see that coming. In a nutshell, “Zero Dark Thirty” is the most overrated movie of 2012. Overrated because it’s been nominated for a best picture Oscar and everyone is […]

Django Unchained [2012]

Like a crazy motherfucker, Quentin Tarantino lets all his obsessions hang out in “Django Unchained”. Some people may want to kill him for it, but if you’re down with that, head off to the “historically inaccurate” “Django” which should have been called “The Good, the Bad and the Slave” […]

Dredd [2012] ★★½

Since Sylvester Stallone screwed up the  the comic-book character with his 1995 screen version. I dreaded the idea of another “Dredd” movie. Surprise. This version starring Karl Urban is not half bad. The first movie was pure cheese, and it had Rob Schneider in it (yes it was that […]

Skyfall [2012]

There’s only one reason why “Skyfall” is the hippest, highest-octane Bond film in ages, and his name is Daniel Craig. Way before “Casino Royale” was released, the internet buzz killers were already ragging on him for being blond and blue-eyed and too short  for Bond duty. Not only did […]

Stolen [2012] ★½

It’s damn hard to enjoy a thriller when you don’t, won’t, can’t believe a word of it. Case in point: “Stolen”, a truly dreadful movie starring non other than Nicolas Cage. If you loved “Ghost Rider”, “Next”, “Bangkok Dangerous”, “Drive Angry”, “Trespass”, “Season of the Witch” and I […]

Taken 2 [2012] ★★

I think it’s useless to try and figure out why “Taken 2” is so disappointing. The film only exists because, after the huge success of the first movie, its studio demanded a sequel. And if their instincts were correct, people will definitely rush to see it this weekend. Fair […]
