Once Upon a Time in Venice – Never Mess with a Man’s Dog!

In the last couple of years Bruce Willis has made about a half-a-dozen films that could be considered B-movies – most of which were fair-to-awful.

Once Upon a Time in Venice – the Blu-ray is in stores now –  leans into the better than average zone. It’s a slight bit of noir-ish fun that finds the only licensed detective in Venice Beach trying to get his dog back – which is much harder (and more convoluted than you’d think).

97_PreciousCargo_LA

If you need a thief, Jack is the best. Crime boss Eddie needs a thief, but isn’t one to ask politely – so he kidnaps Karen, Eddie’s still much beloved ex. Jack is not cool with that, so he plans to save Karen and keep Eddie’s loot for himself and his crew.

Probably not the best idea.

Precious Cargo stars Bruce Willis (Eddie), Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Jack) and Claire Forlani (Karen). Check out the trailer after the break. Precious Cargo will be in theaters and On Demond on April 22nd.

Extraction: Convoluted Spy Movie Never Quite Takes Off!

Extraction-2015

Extraction is a short but not quite sweet spy tale in which a super-hacking device called the Condor is the McGuffin. Basically, it can hack any government’s communications and/or anything that relies on computers – which is pretty much everything these days.

The Condor is actually a device to allow an over the hill CIA agent to extract vengeance for the betrayal that cost his wife’s death.

Icy Cool, Fiery Hot Trailer: Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For!

05

When Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City came out, it was hailed as innovative, a work of genius. For the follow-up, the two have collaborated to adapt the Sin City graphic novel, A Dame To Kill For – and Miller’s name has been added to the title, hence: Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The trailer has the same black-and-white-with-splashes-of-color noir look of the original film and is cool as all get out.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is Infinitely Superior to Rise of the Cobra!

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION

G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra was one of the worst films of 2009 so almost anything would have been an improvement. G.I. Joe: Retaliation may have been constrained by plot devices set up in the first film – a Cobra operative in the White House, for example – but it plays off them with agility, charm and even a little wit. It takes the franchise from Bottom Feeder to better than average in less than two hours.

It’s a Good Day to Kill a Franchise!

diehard

As a fan of even the fourth entry in the Die Hard franchise, which introduced John McClane’s estranged daughter Lucy, it is my sad duty to announce that A Good Day to Die Hard is not just the worst entry in the series, but one of the worst movies I’ve seen over the last few years – and seeing a bad movie in IMAX only makes it worse.
