To Sequel or Not to Sequel: Blood & Bone

Blood & Bone kinda came out of nowhere a few years back and frankly blew us away with its awesome action scenes. The plot is straightforward enough: In Los Angeles, an ex-con Isaiah Bone (Michael Jai White) takes the underg...

To Sequel or Not to Sequel: Kingsman

I saw Kingsman: The Secret Service last week and I have to admit that I haven’t had so much fun at the theatre in a long time. It had the spirit of the old James Bond films but with a modern twist and some ultraviolence throw...
