Where Should Mike Banning Destroy Next?

Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen were both hugely enjoyable old-school action movies and Gerard Butler’s Mike Banning is one of the few action hero characters left in modern action cinema. I don’t want to see the se...

Does Terminator Genisys Deserve a Sequel?

Terminator Genisys has now reached over $300 million worldwide which is actually a pretty decent haul considering the lukewarm reception it’s received from so many people. Personally I quite enjoyed it; it wasn’t a classic ...

To Sequel or Not to Sequel: RoboCop (2014)

It was the reboot nobody really asked for but it was inevitable in this day and age; RoboCop was a reinvention of the Paul Verhoeven classic which came and went with little fanfare but it wasn’t a total failure. The 2014 movi...
