Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

Sorry, folks -- the star of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li is not the mouth-drippingly voluptuous lead actress Kristin Kreuk. It's actually supporting actor Chris Klein, who may very well be our next Keanu...

Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Get in a discussion about comic-book movies and someone will indubitably bring up this theory: Part one of a comic-book movie anthology is always just OK; the series peaks with part two; and in part...

Hancock

Hancock

It doesn't happen in many movies, but there's something I like to call the "drop-off point" to describe when a movie turns bad very suddenly. The drop-off point of Hancock occurs at the beginning of...

Batman: Gotham Knight

Batman: Gotham Knight

Admit it: You love to see Batman bleed. It's his vulnerability that makes him so much more interesting than the Man of Steel. But we don't see quite enough blood in the Batman movies or...

The Machine Girl

The Machine Girl

The Machine Girl is one of those movies that is successful only because it tries to be bad. (Remember Snakes on a Plane?) Of course, that doesn't make it good. Ninjas, flying guillotines, drill bras,...

Bigger, Stronger, Faster*

Drugs are bad, mmmkay? Well, not all of them, argues Chris Bell in his documentary Bigger Stronger Faster. And no, this isn't an argument for pot, but rather a drug that we just don't think...

The Strangers

The Strangers

The strangest, most intriguing thing about The Strangers is that the two main characters are already dead -- before the masked psychopaths even show up outside their door. (Don't worry, that's not a spoiler.)Kristen (Liv...
