Atomic Blonde

This movie is so ridiculously my jam that it’s, well, ridiculous. I already had high hopes for it after hearing good stuff when it was released in theaters and loving the trailer, and my expectations were surpassed. I got all the brilliant action I was expecting — including that truly brilliant chaotic/messy fight scene in […]

Fall 2017 Anime Season

Following a couple of seasons that left me with pretty much nothing I wanted to watch, I’m excited for the start of the fall anime season because there are a few things that I’m at least interested in checking out. Based on what I saw listed on AniChart, here’s what looks interesting to me. Inuyashiki […]

The Defenders

And so I thought it was… OK. I liked it enough to binge it over the weekend, but I can’t say it’s really great. It started off with a godawful boring episode that had me at a point where I didn’t know if I even wanted to continue. It did get better, but it also acted […]

Highlander

I loved this movie so much back in the day, and watched it countless times. Watching it again now, it’s still pretty great, and features some really nicely shot fighting sequences — like the showdown at the end in front of blue-lit windows, with shadowy figures in combat, sorta like what we see in that […]

Sunday Morning Cartoon Cavalcade Vol. 2

Well, it didn’t take long for my plans to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings to switch over to Sunday mornings, and that’s because the new season of Samurai Jack airs on Saturday nights, and so it’s what I want to watch first thing on Sunday. This past Sunday I again kicked things off with Samurai […]

Iron Fist

Let me start by stating how I feel about the Marvel Netflix series so far: I thought the first season of Daredevil was fantastic, and I was especially wowed by Fisk and the great fight choreography; season 2 of Daredevil was a disappointment, and although I liked the portrayal of The Punisher, I felt that sticking him […]

Kung Fu Killer

My rekindled love for kung fu flicks – thanks to seeing Donnie Yen in Rogue One – continues with yet another Yen film (after watching the Ip Man trilogy), this time Kung Fu Killer. I guess the best way to describe this would be to say that it’s like the movie Seven, but with kung […]

Ip Man 3

I definitely liked this, but it’s wasn’t as good as the first two films – it doesn’t have as many classic fight scenes, although the blade fight at the end was pretty great (and the best fight of the series is still the one between Yen and Sammo Hung on the table in Ip Man […]

Rogue One

I loved Rogue One so damn much, that I can honestly say it’s my new favorite Star Wars movie. I loved it on so many levels, from the story, to the new cast of characters, to just, well, so many things. It’s the only Star Wars movie to make me well up a few times, […]
