Suicide Squad Movie Review

I saw various warnings about this movie. There was quite a bit of anticipation for it as the DC universe with Hollywood seemed to want to redeem itself after the heavily panned Superman vs Batman flick. And even with the criticisms towards this movie, I did read that a few performances were well handled. So how did Suicide Squad fare in the Keith rating system?

Working Girl Movie Review

This movie popped up on Netflix and having both Harrison Ford and Sigourney Weaver (as well as a brief showing by my favorite actor, Kevin Spacey), it pretty much became a must-see movie for me. I did read a few summaries and the general consensus made it seem as though this movie would be fairly interesting. However, I have other feelings for this movie that I would like to share.

Shaw Brothers Blood Brothers Kung Fu Movie Review

This movie pretty much is the power trio of David Chiang, Chen Kuan-Tai and Ti Lung in their prime with Chang Cheh really coming into his own. It’s a historical/period piece focused on the rise and fall of Ma Hsin I, played by Ti Lung. It’s done as a retrospective where Chang Wen Hsiang, David Chiang goes to court on his own to confess his crime of slaying Ma Hsin I.

Shaw Brothers Vengeance Kung Fu Movie Review

As a young child, I often watched the old Black Belt theater on channel 11 out here. At the time, I didn’t know them by name, but I would watch Shaw Brothers martial arts movies on Saturday afternoons and later switch to Kung Fu theater on channel 9 later in the evening. However, the Shaw Brothers movies always felt crisper and better produced. Before that though, I remember seeing a very old movie that I did not know the name at the time in which my parents rented. It was very memorable as a child for a single scene that was embedded into my memory for years. Only the other day, I was able to re-discover the exact movie we rented: Vengeance.

X-Men: Why The Movie Franchise is Failing

Although I haven’t seen the new X-Men movie yet, I don’t have an incredible desire at this point. From most reviews, it’s pretty much a meh movie. I wasn’t impressed with most of the cast choices when they were on the previous year’s Comic Con panel (Jubilee and Cyclops by far were the worst). But for the most part as long as Bryan Singer is in charge, I feel that this movie will continue to strike out as nothing more than a popcorn flick and a failure as a franchise in the hearts of X-Men fans.

Why Jem the Movie Failed

Jem the Movie wasn’t an anticipated movie. In fact, there were a lot of hesitation about how it would be cast, knowing how Hollywood tends to bungle reboots and live action versions of much beloved cartoon series. Yet despite all the warnings against the movie, the producers still went ahead and produced a film that did atrociously at the box office to no ones surprise. Yet why did this movie perform so poorly compared to an equally atrocious handling of GI Joe and Transformers?
