Zombieland 2 – Doubletap

Well 10 years have gone by Columbus and Wichita are a couple, Tallahassee’s still an a-hole and Little Rock is not so little anymore. Welcome back, to the United States of Zombieland! Z0mbieland one was of my favorites when it released in Oct. 2009. I love almost anything Zombie so a movie with some of my favorite actors was a definite must-see when it came out. Now 10 years later we're getting the sequel to it, but how will it compare to the original? Well, let’s check it out, shall we?

THE BOTTOM LINE: Anna is serviceable, but isn’t quite unique

Anna will remind you of many other “female spy” films, including some of Luc Besson’s classics. That's not a bad thing at all. While it isn’t quite original, it is...

THE BOTTOM LINE: Daybreakers is a unique and entertaining entry in the vampire genre

It isn’t the definitive vampire film, but Daybreakers will surprise you with its approach. There are themes of conservationism and class warfare, but there is also plenty of blood and...

THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘Lock Up’ is 80s Stallone at his cliche-laden best

The plot is predictable, and you’ll get every prison-movie trope ever conceived, but Stallone somehow makes it all watchable. The 4K transfer shows significant improvement to the video over previous...

THE BOTTOM LINE: Stallone delivers one of the best action films in years

At a time when action films have become neutered, PG-13 shells of their former selves, Stallone delivers a brutal, brilliant film that reminds us what the genre can be. The...

THE BOTTOM LINE: Season Nine is a Welcome Return to Form

Season nine, in many ways, reclaims the fundamentals that made the series so great. Despite the loss of a number of leading actors, the season rarely disappoints. The video transfer...

THE BOTTOM LINE: The Doors is a trippy musical biopic - and Oliver Stone at his best

It may not be the most accurate portrayal of Jim Morrison and The Doors, but Stone perfectly captures their essence. The social upheaval in the music of the late 1960s...

THE BOTTOM LINE: Hellboy stumbles badly in a disappointing reboot

It looks great, and David Harbour is excellent in the title role, but Hellboy is a disappointing mess of gothic horror that drowns in its own gore. The 4K technical...

THE BOTTOM LINE: 'Dead Trigger' Will Leave You Cheering for the Zombies

Inept filmmaking sinks what could have been a decent indie zombie flick. Dolph Lundgren is solid, and he has some notable actors around him, but they are squandered in a...

THE BOTTOM LINE: Replicas Is A Bad Clone of Better Sci-Fi Films

Replicas will remind you of some classic sci-fi and horror, from Frankenstein to Minority Report to I, Robot. It doesn’t make the film great, as it fails to realize its...
