December 11th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Director: Lexi Alexander
Starring: Ray Stevenson, Dominic West, Julie Benz, Wayne Knight

Plot: The Punisher has to kill 74% of the bad people in New York. This is no small task, so Frank Castle (a.k.a. The Punisher, played perfectly by Ray Stevenson) has to get creative and use every part of his body, every gun, every sharp weapon, and every random object near him to shoot, stab, decapitate, dismember, explode, and burn away the criminals.

December 4th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Director: Oliver Megaton
Starring: Jason Statham, Francois Berleand, Robert Knepper, some stupid girl with an accent who should not have been part of this movie

What Should Have Been the Plot: Near carbon copy of the first two Transporter films – this involves a really cool, disciplined dude named Frank Martin (Jason Statham) who has to take something to a certain place. Things aren’t as easy as expected, so aforementioned dude has to kick dozens of people in the face and jump cars over shit.

Roberto Suave’s Best Ever…Quantum of Solace

November 19th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Studio: Sony Pictures
Director: Marc Foster
Starring: Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Olga Kurylenko, Mathieu Amalric, Giancarlo Giannini

Plot: Taking place literally minutes after the events of Casino Royale (best 007 movie ever), Quantum of Solace leads James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a path of revenge against those who wronged him and those he cared about. Along the way, Bond discovers a secret organization that is bigger and deeper than he’d ever imagined. This is terrible for him, but great for the audience, as it opens up endless lines of cannon fodder henchmen for 007 to lay the smack down on.
