Fright Night: Now that's just not fair!

So there's this gal, and there's some danger. It's some really bad danger too, not quite Terminator 2 level, but really, how the hell is she going to get out of the danger? Oh wait, there are TWO gals,...

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Nothing to see here, move along.

I usually include the most widely promoted movie poster when I do a review here. But for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, I'm using the one that best communicates how unsurprising Paula Patton's role is in the film. Unless...

The Three Musketeers: How to Fix This Movie

I didn't expect The Three Musketeers to be a good film. Some guys in 17th century(ish) France fight a lot with swords, check! Milla Jovovich, check! That was all I had on my agenda. I'm also no film scholar....

X-Men: First Class - When "What If?" Fails to Impress

I'm sorry, this is full of spoilers. Can't be helped. X-Men: First Class felt like a big "what If"? What if, instead of the way they told it in the comics, the X-Men had been formed like this? What...

Drive Angry: I cannot honestly recommend this film even though I enjoyed (most of) it

Combining guns, property damage, and a Satanic cult that kidnaps babies isn't likely to get you a good movie, but if you do it right, it can be a lot of fun. The people who made Drive Angry set...

TRON: Legacy - A movie about men doing manly things!

Thus spake the Creator: Listen closely, my son. I will tell you a story that will become the movie known as Tron: Legacy. I was separated from you because I became fascinated by a world beyond our perception. A...

Cyber Wars a.k.a Avatar

According to Netflix, the movie I watched was called Cyber Wars. An incredibly dull and yet somewhat overwrought title, but what can you do? Then I went to get details from IMBD, and it turns out this English language...

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Skye's note: Heroine Content welcomes back guest poster Patrick, who previously shared his take on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. I was quite interested to see someone take on the Lord of the Rings films. My mother...

Predators

What can I say about Predators? Probably nothing terribly coherent, but here goes. The scariest thing about it is probably the poster. I've never seen any other Predator movies so I don't know if these things were more intimidating...

Mortal Kombat / Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

If I actually played video games, the number of video game movies I see would make a lot more sense. Despite my complete lack of playing, I have to admit that I saw both Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat:...

Red Sonja (1985)

I have seen Conan The Barbarian several times, but somehow I had never seen Red Sonja. Now that I have, I'm really not sure how to rate it. My grasp of Arnold Schwarzennegger's acting career is shaky, so I...

Terminator Salvation

We apologize for the delay in issuing this review of Terminator Salvation. You see, after I took one for the team and reviewed Terminator 3, I was kind of hoping that Grace would step up and save me from...

Star Trek

For this review of the new Star Trek film, please welcome BonnieBelle of A Working Title. She called her review "Star Trek: Deconstructed" when she sent it in, and I have to say it's a darn thorough deconstruction! Thanks...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men, men. If you need men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie has men. Men over here, men over there, some more men hanging out over n the corner as backups just in case...

Dragonball Evolution

You may have seen previews or read about Dragonball Evolution and thought "wow, that looks really bad." I did. I had no idea, before seeing this film, just how right I could be. I saw the movie with my...
