Suspension of Disbelief: Once Upon a Time

I like a good fantasy. Especially if it involves swashbuckling sword fights. And curses. And dragons. There isn’t a lot of good fantasy on television. At least the television I have access to. That’s why I was intrigued when ABC premiered Once Upon a Time last year. Title: Once Upon …

With very few downfalls this movie was freaking aaaamazing. Title: Looper Director: Rian Johnson Actors: …

Suspension of Disbelief: The Awakening

While my fiancé was in China I went to the movies alone a LOT. It got to the point where I was going to see stuff… just to see it. The Awakening was one of those movies. It is set in 1921 England and is a horrible disappointment. Title: The …

Suspension of Disbelief: Resident Evil: Retribution

Generally speaking, all of the Resident Evil movies have been pretty great. Even if you’re not a fan of the video games or if you haven’t seen all of the movies that come before one… you were likely to enjoy any one of the films. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said …
