Review: Female Fight Flick 'Raze' Forgets The Fun

1/10/2014 12:01am EST
Let me preface this review by saying I’m a big fan of fight flicks.  Whether it be tales of charismatic underdogs like "Rocky" or used as a primal device to show the dismay of disenchanted youth ala "Fight Club" there’s always room for a good dukes up ditty.  Unfortunately in the case of the new girl-on-girl fight to the death picture titled "Raze" there are neither cool heroes nor underlying meanings.  It’s a movie that simply exists to show captive ladies bare-knuckle beating the ever-loving tar out of each other void of any thrills, excitement or glee – a female fight flick that forgets ...

12/26/2011 1:30pm EST
Actress Rachel Nichols has learned to book her flights home well in advance of the holidays after once celebrating Christmas Eve alone in an airport.

The Hollywood star lives in Los Angeles throughout much of the year, but when the holidays approach she always heads back east to be with her family in Maine.

However, the Star Trek beauty now allots herself more travel time after missing out on her favorite traditions last December when her plane was grounded due to poor weather conditions.

She tells WENN, "I'm from Maine. I eat apple pie for breakfast. I was trying to fly home from L.A. b...

Black Swan
I hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving filled with good food and excellent company. As part of a tradition in my family, we watched the movie “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” starring John Candy and Steve Martin. This road trip comedy which no doubt influenced this year’s “Due Date,” tells the story of a man (Martin) racing home to Chicago for Thanksgiving with his family.

His journey is terrorized by an obnoxious stranger (Candy) he can’t seem to shake. The odd couple is forced to travel together, enduring a comical series of catastrophes, while unwittingly forming a frien...

Review: 'G.I. Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra' Is Pretty Damn Entertaining

8/7/2009 2:23pm EDT
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
When comparing "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" to that awful fellow Hasbro monstrosity "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "Joe" plays out like a goddamn Federico Fellini film. Coherent plot, well established characters, discernible action sequences (Also: no racist robot caricatures, so there's that). It's always kind of fun to write a negative review - especially when the studio doesn't screen it for said writer, early. Unfortunately, for those purposes, "G.I. Joe" is kinda, sorta ... good (!?) This wasn't the way it was supposed to be. THIS WASN'T THE WAY IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE!
