Steampunk Movie Review: The Warrior’s Way

This is probably one of the coolest movies you have never heard of. It only ended up in my possession because The Mister was digging through a DVD bargain bin and came across something he thought I’d like. So we saddled up our whiskey 7’s and had ourselves a movie night.

“Dr. Strange” Movie Review

I just got back from seeing Dr. Strange with my lovely wife, and overall typical Marvel style movie that somehow manages to almost top others in some ways, and a decent date movie. I’d rate it 4 / 5 Pentacles.

Stixen Stones Takes on Suicide Squad!

Stixen’s Spoiler-free summary: Do you enjoy DC failing miserably? Or are you used to it by now? Because this movie is no exception! Because, cast, crew and director be damned- sometimes, no matter how good the set-up is, that’s just not enough to save a shaky plot. Warning! Many spoilers lurk below this point!

Movie Review: Odd Thomas (2013)

This film has been coming up on my Netflix recommendations for what feels like forever, and I finally clicked on it last night. OMG it was AWESOME. I found out afterward that it was based on a book by Dean Koontz by the same name.

“The City of Ember” – Film Review

Like The Golden Compass, City of Ember skirts the edge of “true” Steampunk, but I have seen it on several Steampunk movie countdowns so I thought I’d check it out and snoop for Steampunkishness.

“Treasure Planet” – Film Review

Have you ever been watching a pirate movie and said to yourself, “Gee, what this really needs is some aliens!” Then Disney’s 2002 animated feature Treasure Planet is the movie for you!
