Profile: When I first started writing this column, I did so knowing that I would have to watch many films. I had a head start with the first three (Schwarzeneggar, Willis and Stallone), but with Jason Statham and now Milla Jovovich, and other profiles in the future, I have created a task bigger than I expected. A process consisting of sifting through films, choosing the ones that were must-sees and ones that would be good supplements, queue-ing them up, and waiting impatiently at the mailbox. Then to strengthen the blow, I sat through films that no one should ever have to watch, films with little to no redeeming qualities. This is an action star column, and I am aware of the odious amounts of cinematic fluff that would come my way, but I always expected decent action at the very least. Something that provoked me on at least a visceral level, that made whoop and holler, and instilled me with the confidence to crush my enemies under my boot heel. Alas, I have been thwarted, and after doing my research on Milla Jovovich, I have come away with very few positive things to say. (more…)

Trailer Review:
[Reviewed by: Alex Miller]

UPDATE: Full Movie Review

I give the first half of this trailer a 0, and the second half a 5. Somehow that averages out into a 4, don’t ask me how. What is this movie about?! I mean, I know it’s probably something lame and stupid, but still this marketing is genius. This movie looks horrible, yet, I really want to know what happens. I mean is this chick actually dead? Is it all a big practical joke? Is this all staged? I’d bet money on it. I find it hard to believe that something genuinely bizarre (whatever it is) just “happened” to happen while they were shooting a lame documentary about finding a chick on Facebook. Movies about online-dating are nothing new. They at least go as far back as 1998 with AOL’s feature-length commercial “You’ve Got Mail”, if not further. This looks more like “The Social Network” mixed with “The Blair Witch Project”. I also don’t like this apparent trend of amateurish looking movies that pretend to be documentaries. In any case, their marketing stunt worked. I’m (cautiously) interested, but my gut tells me it’s gonna suck. Still an interesting trailer, regardless.
