Robocop Trilogy (1987/1990/1992) The "Robocop" Trilogy wasn't given a glorious announcement.  It wasn't until it showed up in the mail that I even knew it was being released.  Surprisingly it is available at retails stores for less than $30.  What other trilogy boxset on Blu-ray can be had for that price? The first film has already been released on Blu-ray.  To read the solo Blu-ray review click here . The first film was directed by Paul Verhoven, who is better known for his works "Total Recall,"  “Showgirls ” and "Basic Instinct."  The first film gives us the premise that will be expanded in the second and third films.  "Robocop" takes place in Motor City (Detroit) and is rooted in the economic turmoil of the city.  OCP is a corporation that has taken control of the city's police force, privatizing law enforcement. Robocop is a police officer ...

Jonah Hex (2010) My oh my.  What are we supposed to do with this film?  I don’t even think it can really be classified as a film.  It lacks everything that makes cinema, cinema.  There is an attempt at an already clichéd plot, but that fails.  The script is simply terrible.  You have to cringe at the acting that tries to bring the script to the audience.  It could very possibly win a Razzie Award for editing.  The list goes on an on. “Jonah Hex” does not even reach the potential of simply being a blockbuster summer action film.  It seems that everyone making this movie just wanted to rush through everything and move on, realizing that they were never going to make the film work.  With barely an 80-minute runtime, shorter than most animated features, we certainly can’t expect much.  But thankfully it ...

Iron Man 2 (2010) We all know that sequels don’t live up to the original more than 90 percent of the time.  There are the exceptional few like “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Godfather Part II.”  There is usually a third category that is rarely mentioned.  That is one of limbo.  It isn’t really better than the original.  It isn’t worse than the original, but at the same time it really isn’t on the same level as the original.  “Iron Man 2” is one of those sequels. The film doesn’t lack some much as is too extraneous.  There are too many aspects of the film that keep breaking you from the cinematic experience, in particular, Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke.  These two villains are way over the top that it becomes a comical nuisance.  Sure, the first couple times that Hammer (Sam Rockwell) throws ...

Robin Hood (Unrated Director's Cut) (2010) I was really looking forward to a Ridley Scott take on the Robin Hood saga.  Unfortunately, this film falls flat on its face.  We are offered nothing new and the performances are simply average.  Everyone seems to be of the same personality, making it a bit difficult to distinguish one from another. Errol Flynn’s “The Adventures of Robin Hood” still stands as the best Robin Hood film ever made.  Sitting through Scott’s “Robin Hood” made me wish I was watching “Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves.”  In fact, I went back and watched that film right after this one and was so much more enthralled. “Robin Hood” lacks a gripping story.  It is simply the prequel to any actual Robin Hood movie.  The film is centered on Robin Longstride’s return to England after fighting in the Crusades.  Longstride made a promise to Robert ...

Charlie's Angels (2000) Action and looks is everything that this is film is about.  Forget a plot, at least one that isn’t highly predictable.  “Charlie’s Angels” is about wire-work action sequences and more than unbuttoned, or unzipped shirts.  I believe that the creators realized the only way this film would work would be to make fun of itself, which is does. Still, the only things that may keep audiences in their seats are the girls and moments of martial arts action.  The rest of the film is over the top.  The sexual innuendos and humor works for a little while and then just becomes annoying.  The creators bring the Angels into the modern world and don’t give them a scene without them being in underwear, unzipped racing track suits, unzipped scuba gear, or just a sheet.  The girls play their part well.  But the ...
