There was a script review of this a while back which made it sound like "Heat 2: Miami." A crime epic like Heat, jammed with detail, but with the focus on the drug trade. It seemed to imply there...

In the first comparison picture set, the new transfer looks brighter. But overall, it still looks very close.

The first action scene is fantastic. Crazy SWAT intense machine gunfire madness. The rest of the film is excessive melodrama and the action scenes turn into sub-John-Woo slow-mo cheese. But the...

I googled it a bit, and it turns out the town is an amalgamation of several towns, but a lot of it is based straight off of the port town of Visby in the Baltic Sea. If you look at the photos, it...

If it's got space marines, dark sci-fi/horror atmosphere and monsters that look like they do in the game, then it could still feel like the game even without a specific satan angle. But PG-13 and...

They want to stop you from re-selling your game once you're bored with it? WTF? Is this 1980's Japan or something? That's un-American. To hell with 'em. Time to hit up the NG service.

Why would it have to be a right before they could sue? Would the case even be a rights issue? Can't they say the jammers endangered them or something?

Yeah, Sarah Jessica Parker wasn't bad 10+ years ago. She's just got that really hard, gritty look now from what must be excessive aerobicizing. Plus, the messy hair absolutely doesn't help.

It's almost insulting to hear to OUATIC 2 dismissed as another cheesy, no-story kung fu film. It's clearly got a lot more on its mind than getting to the next fight. The film is highly ambitious...
