Movie Review - "Shade"

... is a movie with Sylvester Stallone as a card shark. Three con artist attempt to hustle him in a card game.

With over $2 Million at stake, the pressure to succeed is high. What happens?

Check it out sometime. The story drags at times but overall I consider it a good movie.

Consider it a first date movie. Your date won't leave wondering if you are a nutcase.

Movie Review - "Gangs of New York"

... movie with Daniel Day Lewis and Leonardo DiCaprio with a cameo from Liam Neeson.

Gangs run rampant in the city. Daniel and Liam are two key gang leaders. There is a fierce battle that leaves Daniel's gang the victor. Liam is killed and leaves an orphan son, Leonardo.

Years later, Leonardo returns to avenge his father. The remainder of the movie focuses on Leonardo's actions.

Long movie, wait till a rainy day and consider it a "non-first date movie".

Movie Review - "Starship Troopers 2"

... is a sequel to "Starship Trooper". The bugs are still attacking in force, but they have taken a different route to destroy humans.

The blood and gore is rampant, but the movie does not have the same feel as the first movie.

Wait for a rainy day to rent this one and don't consider it a first date movie.

Movie Review - "Paycheck"

... is a movie starring Ben Affleck as a "reverse engineering" Engineer. He is hired by companies to purchase a product, take it apart, then rebuild it into something better.

However, there is a catch. His memory is erased at the conclusion of an assignment which is not a big deal when the pay is good.

Unfortunately, one assignment goes too far.

Good movie with enough suspense to keep you interested. Check it out, it is a first date movie.
