Lots of movies hitting store shelves today, and in my opinion, lots of movies that would be good rentals rather than a good addition to your at home collection.  You may disagree.  I know a couple of people headed out to pick up the first sci-fi epic on the list today, and others may just […]

“We create our heaven and hell.” Perhaps the most sagacious words ever uttered by a heroin addict shooting up in her bathroom. Much like her, anyone who goes and sees “Faster” will create their own heaven and hell, depending on whether they watch the entire movie. I’m a guy. I like action movies. I’ll relentlessly […]
