To Sequel or Not to Sequel: Bad Boys 3

Remember when Michael Bay actually made good action movies? No? Well he did, so there. The Rock and the Bad Boys movies I consider his best and I’m surprised we’ve never seen a third entry in the Bad Boys series. The second...

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...

To Sequel or Not to Sequel: Crank 3

The first two Crank movies are the most batshit crazy movies you’ll ever see with outrageous action, public sex scenes and Jason Statham on fine wise-cracking form. Part 1 is arguably the superior movie as the second one ...
