Underworld: Awakening – The Return of Selene

If you have to choose between seeing Haywire and Underworld: Awakening, you should see Haywire. If you don’t have to choose, see both. Two action films headlined by women opening in one weekend. WHY DOESN’T THIS HAPPEN MORE OFTEN?! I have big love for Selene, the vampire Death Dealer from the first and second Underworld films. The second film was… Read more »

Haywire: Start 2012 Off Right, Y’all

If Haywire is opening in your city on Friday, please cancel any other plans you have and buy tickets immediately.

But on this one, he almost refused. “It’s going to be horrible,” he said. “I mean, I want to spend time with my wife, but…” The… Read more »

Wing Chun: Why, oh why did I watch this movie again?

Trigger warning on this film for rape by deception and an attempted gang rape. It’s mentioned in the review but not discussed in detail. I saw Wing Chun years ago in a theater in Austin. If I’d been asked to describe it from memory, I would have said something like “Michelle Yeoh totally kicks a bunch of guys’ backsides with… Read more »
