REview: Jiu Jitsu (2020) | Not Terrible, Which Is Damning With Faint Praise

If you’ve never seen a martial arts movie – or anything starring either Arnold Schwarzenegger or Danny Glover – Jiu Jitsu might blow your mind. If you have – and that likely includes most of us – you’re assured to be unimpressed because Jiu Jitsu is too derivative of much better movies like Predator (1987), […]

My Two Cents | Is “The Boys” A Children’s Show?

This article contains mild spoilers for the most recent season of Amazon’s The Boys.

Kevin Tancharoen’s ‘Mortal Combat’ Reboot Is A Go!

Kevin Tancharoen, the director of 2009’s “Fame” reboot–perhaps one of the most unnecessary remakes that I can recall–was so impressed with “Mortal Combat” that he directed a series of short films, four of which I have included below, that reinvented the series in a more realistic, gritty fashion than Paul W.S. Anderson’ s original film. […]
