Villainess Review: Cynthia Walker (Exploited)
So I was combing Redbox and decided to watch a film on their On Demand list; something I hadn't done in a while. After combing through a number of trailers, my film of choice was Exploited, and this was quite a movie that I picked out. The film centers on main protagonist Brian and his first day in college, but the beginning of his freshman year sees in the center of the world of webcam, voyeurism, dark secrets, sex, drugs, rock and roll, and yes, even murder.
Comic Book Movie Rewind
Next up on comic book movie rewind we have the original X-Men. Now this poor team has been through a lot as far as adaptations go, the original films as I recall were not truly terrible unlike their shifted timeline counterparts. The first of the trilogy was released in 2000 and was a phenomenally casted film. The acting was never anyone's issue with these films. However it has been almost a decade since I’ve watched these so let’s see how these hold up.
My Review of "Inception"
Inception is a totally wild movie that came out back in 2010. I saw it back when it first came out but I wasn't too sure how it would translate to opinion today. Originally I loved this movie. I thought it was fascinating and absurdly creative back in the day. The concept of the show is still wildly creative but I wanted to see if I could still get into it. It is after all a very long movie.
