Air America (August 10, 1990)

e of Eeee

xXx (August 9, 2002)

This film sucks!

F1/2 of  Ffff

I give this half a star for Vin, half a star for Sam Jackson and half for the good soundtrack - the rest is nonsense. 
I am Groot! and Xander and Dominic T. and Sam Jackson is another spy like handler. 

Juice (January 17, 1992)

Ff1/2 of  Ffff

Has a bit part as a two bit hustla' in NYC. 

The Judge (October 10, 2014)

Ff1/2 of  Ffff

Iron Man vs. the Kingpin - They play brothers in this film however. 

Oldboy (November 27, 2013)

e of Eeee
No, not this Brolin comic book film, though it is a damn shame this didn't turn out better as Jonah Hex is an awesome character!

While this movie is a total fuck up, the cast from the MCU is awesome! Scarlet Witch and Nick Fury vs. Thanos!

Hugo (November 23, 2011)

Ff1/2 of  Ffff

Although the Trevor Slattery plot twist was definitely surprising it was also extremely frustrating that Iron Man's main nemesis apparently has yet to be seen in the MCU. Ben Kingsley's appearance in this film as an early pioneer in film making is a charming tribute to movie making by Scorsese. 

The Illusionist (August 18, 2006)

Ff1/2 of  Ffff

I finally watched this film while paying attention to it - mostly anyway. I still find it somewhat boring and too simple of a plot as the "twist" ending is just a bunch of flashes at the very end. Ultimately it is a decent and entertaining film that is inferior when compared to the Prestige.

It is a damn shame Norton is apparently hard to work with and did not want to commit to the MCU, he was excellent as Bruce. 

Not Safe for Work (May 9, 2014)


Joe Johnston directed this small film as a follow-up to Captain America: the First Avenger. It is an okay flick but I enjoy almost every other entry in his filmography better.

James Montgomery Falsworth, the original Union Jack portrays the killer in this low-budget thriller. I would really like to see more of him and the Howling Commandos in the MCU but doubt it will ever happen since they are not "bankable" characters.

Much Ado About Nothing (June 21, 2013)

#1/2 of ####

It's like a bunch of high school kids reciting a play while video taping it for English class! Joss Whedon is overrated everyone. 

Agent Phil Coulson loves doing plays with Joss Whedon at his house and his other buddies. 

View from the Top (March 21, 2003)

Chef (May 9, 2014)

** of ****

All Is Lost (October 25, 2013)

Ee of Eeee

This movie is about the near death experience of Alexander Pierce. Once he survives this ordeal of silence he decides to go through with his plan to take over the world for security purposes. Hail H.Y.D.R.A.!

Glory Daze (September 27, 1996)

Ff1/2 of  Ffff

Battle of some comic book millionaires Justin Hammer vs. Bruce Wayne.
