Movie Review: 21 Jump Street

Posted March 26, 2012 by Capt. Tristan Hinderliter

Fly Over: ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’, ‘Rise of the Guardians’

Posted December 14, 2012 by Jayson Burns

On DVD: ‘Starship Troopers: Invasion’ It’s never fun being a fan of a series that constantly disappoints, as I’m sure most fans of the “Starship Trooper” films will confess.

Fly Over: ‘End of Watch’, and ‘Pacific Rim’

Posted July 19, 2013 by Jayson Burns and Tristan Hinderliter

‘Pacific Rim’ Let me start by making this very clear: anyone who does not care about watching giant, computer-generated robots punching giant, computer-generated monsters should lower my rating down a point or two. That is what Guillermo Del Toro set out to do with “Pacific Rim,” and this movie has it. Other aspects of filmmaking…
