Righteous Kill – Movie Review

        Good acting and OK story, slow at times. The story is about a cop who takes the law in his own hands (a “Dexter” if you watch HBO, but without the slice and dice…), with twists and turns. Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are being and acting exactly as you … Read more

Cage, cage.   I wanted to start with a witty “Mr. Cage, you are very cagy”, but it doesn’t mean anything, so I’ll skip it. Nicolas Cage just always has that sad expression on his face, and he can’t get very exciting…. Gloomy expression continually? Come on… The movie has some reasonably good action scenes … Read more
