Fantasia 2022: "Accion Mutante" (1993) Review

Severin Films will be releasing Alex de la Iglesia's, "Accion Mutante," on 4K Blu-ray sometime in 2022. The 4K transfer of the film debuted at this year's Fantasia International Film Festival.

Fantasia 2022: "The Roundup" Review

Don Lee and Son Sukku star in the The Roundup. This is 100 straight minutes of some of the best action you'll see in any film, foreign or not, this year. Well written, exceptional acting, and breakneck fight sequences that take your breath away, The Roundup should not be missed.

the-gray-man-2022-the-yawn-ultimatum

"The Gray Man" (2022) - The Yawn Ultimatum

The latest action thriller from Anthony and Joe Russo is a total snooze fest. The action is decent at times, but most of the fight scenes are indecipherable, the screenplay is overwhelmingly bland, and the cast is ultimately wasted in what is otherwise an entirely forgettable film.

"Thor: Love and Thunder" (2022) Review: Taika Waititi Overload

Natalie Portman returns as Jane Foster in Thor: Love and Thunder. As the only fourth film of any franchise in the MCU, Love and Thunder is ridiculous, laugh out loud funny, sloppy, and kind of fun all rolled into a colors-so-bright aesthetic that will make you barf.

"Jurassic World Dominion" (2022) Review: You Can't Squeeze Gold From a Dried Up Fossil

The conclusion to the Jurassic World trilogy is more or less a waste of your time. The film seems to purposely try to distract the fact there simply isn't enough dinosaur action while focusing on the grizzled veterans of Jurassic Park and a parenting storyline that is as dumb as it sounds.

The Doctor Strange sequel sees Sam Raimi in the director's chair for the first time in nearly ten years. "In the Multiverse of Madness" is the first film to introduce horror to the beloved MCU. It probably isn't as dark as you'd like it to be, but it is certainly fun when it wants to be.

Nic Cage tries his hardest to make "Prisoners of the Ghostland" worthwhile, but it just isn't. It has a lot of influences, but fails to provide its own narrative. Apart from taking away that it's a super bizarre film experience, it is otherwise mediocrity constructed around an insane concept.

Storytelling Through Violence: "Rurouni Kenshin: The Final" and the Battle Between Kenshin and Enishi

In the West, sword fights and Japan are usually synonymous. Yet they often communicate an unspoken story within a story. A subtlety that many Western action movies lack because of an over-emphasis on appearance. One of the best examples of this art is from the movie, "Rurouni Kenshin: The Final."
