Review in a Nutshell:  An Indonesian martial arts movie written and directed by a Welsh man, The Raid: Redemption is not just a typical action movie.  It blends drama and suspense with some of the most breath-taking and technically accomplished fight choreography in recent cinema history to create a tight, tense, thoroughly engrossing experience.

Hold onto your hatchets, because Deep Red is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  A suspenseful film with beautiful composition but a somewhat surreal plot, Deep Red is considered by many to be the pinnacle of the giallo subgenre.

Cage Rage: Deadfall

Hold onto your wallets, because Deadfall is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Zac Lowe of the “Cult It or Can It” Podcast.

Review in a Nutshell:  A stunning example of nepotism gone horribly wrong, Deadfall features Nicolas Cage at the very extreme of his lunacy.

This movie contains:

The Cage abides.

The Cage parties hard.

The Cage…

…completely…

…freaks out.

The Cage approves.

FINAL THOUGHT:

Deadfall in Five Seconds or Less.  Viewer Discretion Advised, Explicit Language ahoy!

Cage Rage: Kiss of Death

Get ready to bench-press some strippers, because Kiss of Death is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film.

Review in a Nutshell: Kiss of Death is a shockingly well-made crime drama full of character and suspense. Look for fine performances by a host of skilled actors, including but not limited to Stanley Tucci and Samuel L. Jackson. (Also Nicolas Cage.)

This film contains:

Infinite Sunglasses?

THE CAGE IS DISPLEASED.

Some upper-middle class jerk and his glass of wine.

Orphanages and Bullies Don’t Really Exist.

Don’t drink the amber rum, because The Devil’s Backbone is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: The Devil’s Backbone is a Gothic tale of injustice and inevitability set during the Spanish Civil War. Think of it as a primer for Pan’s Labyrinth, with less magic, more realism, and no Doug Jones.

This movie contains:

Inappropriate Relationships.

Friendly Ghosts.

Burn Victims.

Savage Children.

COMING SOON!

Mom and I take a crack at The Beast Must Die. Watch for the Werewolf Break!
