Angelwolf

”Ever looked out at the city, the night embraced her like a lost friend, below the silent gray mist rises like a ghost, her refuge, a 30th floor apartment, her lover nameless, dying on the floor behind her, as she walks to the end of the balcony, dangling her toes off the edge, ”men,” she cries as she pours the last few drops of wine, into a glass…”

The Good: Here we have a new take on the age old Werewolf and Vampire story. In Angelwolf, there are well, angelwolves. These are angelic versions of werewolves, saved by God himself. We have a head vampire determined to destroy them and any/all remaining werewolves on the planet. It’s a new take on an old war. Don’t worry, for those Twilight scoffers, nobody sparkles and everyone is pretty kick butt.

The Bad: I’m not sure tha...

Looper

Walking into this movie I was kind of thinking “hmm now self needs to kill future self, can’t do it”. However this movie is eerily INCEPTION-ESQUE, mind bending, genius on top of “I have the biggest gun on the planet action”. I have always been a fan of Bruce Willis, but in this film he takes it to a whole new level opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt (the man with abundant last names).

Resident Evil: Retribution

Of all the RESIDENT EVIL movies this one is by far the most inventive and genius (and I guess that confused some critics). Milla is just a great as usual and seeing Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory) in an extended role again pretty much makes this a must see. If you watched them all recently there are few let downs including the casting of the red queen and unfortunately, Bingbing Li as Ada Wong who both deliver sub par performances. Having said that, attention to detail is evident if you saw AFTERLIFE, and just a tid bit on the casting – a secondary role of Becky was given to Aryana Engineer (lead in the Orphan)...
