Year: 2007

The Bourne Ultimatum

Two words pretty much sum up this movie: Holy sh*t. I went in that theater half-forgetting what the first two in the series were about. I spent half the time during the previews recollecting the memories and the other half regretting not doing a 4-hour Bourne marathon on the day before… it doesn’t matter though……


300

The movie for which testosterone-dripping males from around the world were anxiously waiting for and drooling at is finally unleashed. Even the 300 trailers left countless unsatisfied wives and girlfriends lying in their cold beds waiting for a radiance of warm touch. Men were absent then and will still be for several more weeks.

Indirectly and slightly resembling the visuals of the futuristic apocalypse of the Half-Life universe and inspired by Hitchcockian masterful filmmaking, Children of Men is sure to…


Casino Royale

This period of the year is a commemoration of an aging tradition and a world-renowned symbol. No, it’s not Christmas. It’s the release of another James Bond flick. No matter how disgustingly unbelievable the elements those films incorporate, one sequel after another, men are never bored by the non-stop action, and the dripping sexuality and…
