Film Review: As Title Implies, ‘The Expendables 3’ Totally Expendable

Film Review: Surprises Can’t Save ‘Sabotage’ From Bloody Carnage

CHICAGO – The crime thriller “Sabotage” is the least predictable and most intense of the handful of post Governator action movies Arnold Schwarzenegger has starred in.

The Last Stand Blu-ray

CHICAGO – “The Last Stand” may mark the first time Arnold Schwarzenegger fulfilled his iconic promise, “I’ll be back,” and the general public replied, “Who cares?” Designed as a comeback vehicle for the actor-turned-governor-turned-wannabe actor, this competently made yet instantly forgettable flick has already gained notoriety as one of the year’s biggest bombs.

Blu-ray Review: Beautifully Restored Edition of James Cameron’s ‘The Terminator’

The Terminator

CHICAGO – I have to admit that I greeted the new Blu-ray edition of James Cameron’s wildly-influential “The Terminator” with a raised eyebrow and heavy dose of skepticism.
