Movie Review: ‘Hunter Killer’ Starring Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman, Common

Posted: October 26, 2018 at 7:01 am   /   Movie Reviews

Russia, United States, submarines, Sean Connery…whoops, wrong movie. It’s hard not to draw at least some parallels between Hunter Killer and The Hunt for Red October, which, alongside Das Boot, is the submarine movie to which all others are compared. On the surface (no pun intended), there are at least a few superficial connections between […]

Movie Review: ‘Dawn of The Planet of The Apes’ Starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman

As far as reboots of well established franchises go, Rise of the Planet of the Apes certainly ranked among the ones that was (or is, if you still haven’t seen it) very well worth your time. I certainly wish more sequels would turn out like this one. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes leads off […]

33: ‘RoboCop’ Starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson

It was Valentine’s Day Weekend and love was in the air. So, of course, this week on the show we tackle Robocop. Well, ok, nobody “tackles” Robocop. Although…ED-209? No, they don’t really “tackle” things. They just shoot them. So, um, anyway…this week’s podcast is about Robocop. Did it recapture the dark-comedy heights of the original? […]

Movie Review: ‘RoboCop’ Starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel Jackson

Posted: February 12, 2014 at 12:19 pm   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

In 1987, RoboCop blew moviegoers away (no pun intended) with its blend of over the top violence, revolutionary special effects, and biting social commentary (it was the 80’s after all), all wrapped into a perfect storm of an 80’s action movie. To me, the original source material was so unique and timeless that it never needed […]

For some time now, there has been word of a RoboCop remake.

In March of 2012 we found out that Joel Kinneman would play Alex Murphy / RoboCop. And finally, as […]
