Sparks-the-movie-origin-of-ian-sparks-2013-3

SYNOPSIS: A masked vigilante who suddenly discovers the dark side to heroism. Going after the nation’s most notorious super criminal leaves Sparks’ life and reputation in ruins. REVIEW: In this day and age the idea of producing a superhero film for anything less than $150-200 million dollars is laughable. With blockbusters like “The Avengers“, “Man Of Steel” & “Iron Man 3” sporting mega budgets (& making mega profits), it’s hard to imagine anyone trying to … Continue reading

Nothing-Left-to-Fear-2013-Movie-3

SYNOPSIS: A family’s journey toward a better life is interrupted by an unstable man of the cloth. REVIEW: Despite the fact that the iconic name ‘Slash’ (aka from Guns ‘n’ Roses fame) produced this movie, it turned out to be a fairly average horror film which managed to throw in a couple of scares but nothing ground-breaking. I’ve noticed that over the past few years, along with handheld films, religious horror seems to have exploded … Continue reading
