There is no reason for Red Dawn to exist.

For 50 years James Bond’s thrilling escapades have stirred imaginations and kept audiences glued to the edge of their theater seats eager to discover what was going to happen next. Based on Skyfall, it wouldn’t surprise me if the British spy keeps on doing it better than anyone else for 50 more.

Alex Cross is a bad film, and that’s all there is to say on the matter.
Tai Chi Zero is a bad movie, and I honestly don’t think there’s anything left for me to say.
Taken 2 is a total hoot. Problem is, it’s not meant to be one.
Looper is Grade A sci-fi entertainment. Johnson’s film works, and like all great time travel epics, this is one adventure we’re all going to be thinking about far into the unknowable future.
