Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time (2010) From the producer, Jerry Bruckheimer.  I guess you can see where this is going already.  I wish I could say this film had substance, but unfortunately it fizzles, becoming just another summer blockbuster.  “Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time” has some great action but not much else. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Dastan, an adopted Prince in Persia.  He is headstrong, but has the ability to be a true leader.  He gets along with his two brothers to a degree, but their father holds a special place in his heart for his adopted son.  This drives the brothers to question each other.  The film is really about trusted your heart and doing what is right despite orders. The film falls into all the predictable patterns of a summer blockbuster.  It gives away answers too quickly to questions that should remain mysteries for ...

Book Of Eli, The (2010) I'm just going to come right out and say it.  "The Book Of Eli" is the best movie I have seen come out in years.  I am trying to figure out whether it was really that good of a movie or whether I have just been bombarded with tons of junk.  It is so hard to distinguish.  I would have to say that despite the plethora of subpar films of recent years "The Book of Eli" still holds its own as a good film.  It is not going to become a classic, but let me put it this way.  This is the first film that I actually considered watching again. The film unique in that it doesn't lay it all out there in the open.  It makes you pay attention.  You try to guess what is going on, but not in ...

Darkman (1990) "Darkman" is pretty much a cult classic and Raimi fan favorite.  However, the film will likely strike a chord out there with some and leave some others just shaking their head.  There is a lot of thematic elements and drama in this superhero/villain adaptation.  However, much of it is overlooked due to the campy nature of the film. Sam Raimi, who is most known for his work on "Spider-Man" shows his roots in this film.  Like "Evil Dead" and "Army of Darkness" before it, "Darkman" is simply cheesy and brilliant at the same time.  The film combines elements from all genres, particularly horror and crime.  It is uncertain whether we should be rooting for or against Darkman, due to his split personality.  Some of the driving forces in the film are obscured by less likeable characters and plots, which is what ...

Elektra (Director's Cut) (2005) After the moderate success of "Daredevil" in 2003, Fox decided to create a spin-off, "Elektra" in 2005.  Unfortunately, the film failed to gain any type of success.  It was one of the biggest letdowns in a long line of comic book superhero film adaptations. Despite the film being panned by critics, it still has a quality that makes it watchable.  The film is entertaining if you are not looking for sophisticated plot lines.  This is typical blockbuster spin-off that really only has the presence of Jennifer Garner going for it. In the "Daredevil" spin-off, Garner reprises her role as Elektra, motherless, and now fatherless, daughter that was killed, but not really, at the end of "Daredevil."  That is the only element that is needed from "Daredevil," otherwise "Elektra" is a standalone movie.  In "Elektra" The Hand is an evil association that longs ...

Armageddon (1998) Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer get a bad rap.  I have a theory that it is because viewers are jealous of their talent.  They have produced and created some of the best action blockbusters in the past couple decades.  I think that audiences are afraid to admit that their films are guilty pleasures.  "Armageddon" is one of those films. Beside the film holding some sentimental meaning for myself, it is one the best of the apocalypse movies from the 90s.  Around the time of these destruction blockbusters, things seemed to be released in twos.  Just prior to "Armageddon" came "Deep Impact."  In my honest opinion, the former bests the latter by leaps and bounds. Released just a few years after "Apollo 13," "Armageddon" uses some of the same CG effects for the shuttle launches and space sequences.  They hold up fairly well ...
