Bloodrayne (2005) – 27 Second Review

Bloodrayne

Written by: Guinevere Turner, based on the video game
Directed by: Uwe Boll
Starring: Kristanna Loken, Ben Kingsley, Michael Madsen, Michelle Rodriguez, Matthew Davis, Billy Zane

Review: It has Ben Kingsley, so it can’t be all bad, right? Wrong. I have the sneaking suspiscion this movie was made only to show off Loken’s boob job and Madsen’s mullet. “Madsen’s Mullet” should be a grunge rock band.

Time: 12 seconds.

The Fast and the Furious (2001) – Movie Review

The Fast and the Furious (2001) movie poster art

As Brian learns to be a player in this strange new existence, it appears that Dom might be leading a secret double life–because Brian sure as hell is.
