I love Pompeii. It’s a fascinating place where the past comes to life; where all one imagines of the Roman Empire is made tangible. It’s amazing to walk through ancient homes surrounded by frescoes, mosaics, restaurants, a bathhouse, a grand theater…and one need only look upward to see the cause of both Pompeii’s destruction and preservation. That vast, once fearsome volcano. Still, it is worth but a glance; the city and her ghosts will forever remain the focus of Pompeii. In his latest film, Paul W.S. Anderson gives us the opposite: a cursory glance at the people and the detailed wrath of top-billed Mount Vesuvius.
Hi, Bryan Here…..
We all knew with the success of Sylvester Stallone’s ‘The Expendables‘ films, that there was eventually going to be a female version. It was only a matter of time. We’ve even talked about it on this site before. Well, we aren’t too far off from some big news regarding this project. Millennium Films chief Avi Lerner, who has released the past ‘Expendable‘ films, is making ‘The ExpendaBelles‘, which again is virtually the same film as Stallone’s, but with females.
Hi, Bryan Here….
If two films weren’t enough, there will be a third movie to laugh at. That’s right, ‘The Expendables 3‘ has a release date of August 15, 2014, which Lionsgate is proud to get behind. And why shouldn’t they be proud, the first two made over $575 million worldwide, which is the biggest franchise for Millennium Films. This time around, Patrick Hughes will be in the director’s chair, which his only feature credit is for a movie called ‘Red Hill‘, so she has his work cut out for him.
I had some help writing this article with writer, Lisa S. Lisa hails from netherworld of the Northwest and is not above watching zombie movies for 24 hours straight. She loves all kinds of scary movies and is an avid music fan. You might even find her perusing the used DVD bin at your local movie store looking for old Ernest movies and Sifl and Olly discs. Lisa helped quite a bit with this article and you can expect her read many more of her articles on this site from this point forward. Give her a warm welcome and visit her online book and record store HERE.
Now let’s get to the list. Here are Boomstick’s Top 20 Female Badasses in film and television. I tried to keep it in the horror/sci-fi genre, but a couple of action star made it in there. These females are the most hardcore we feel, by how much ass they kick, their courage, and their sex appeal. We dare you to find better role models and badasses than this. Enjoy the list.
Hi, Bryan Here…..

I know every year, we here at Boomstick HQ broil tons of Crawfish and watch loads of zombie movies. Here is a list of some you might enjoy.
Hi, Bryan Here….
This version of ‘The Three Musketeers’ is extremely bittersweet for me. More on the bitter side than the sweet side. I’m not a fan of the director by any means, but the casting was great. I love the story of the ‘The Three Musketeers’, and I don’t really think it was done well this time. However, the actual video and audio quality of the disc is very much demo worthy. It looks and sounds fantastic. But other than that, this ‘The Three Musketeers’ is forgettable.
Hi Bryan Here….
Another year, another ‘Resident Evil’ film. What number are they on now?? 5000? Well this one is called ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’. And Paul W.S. Anderson is back in the director’s chair, this time with the unkillable Milla Jovovich and badass Michelle Rodriguez running around stomping zombies. I must say, that this trailer looks a bit decent compared to the last couple of films. You be the judge.
Hi Bryan Here….
Criterion rolls out the red carpet yet again with the re-release of the instant cult classic ‘Dazed and Confused’. This time it is on glorious blu-ray. This movie will live on forever. There really isn’t another movie like it. The characters, the music, the dialogue are all quoted and duplicated today. This film started the careers of tons of big named actors including: Parker Posey, Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Milla Jovovich, Joey Lauren Adams, and a few others. This re-release is virtually the same as the previous criterion release, but in blu-ray. And let me just say, it is worth the upgrade. The picture and sound are top notch.

Hi Bryan Here….
Here is the trailer for the brand new “Three Musketeers” film directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (The Resident Evil Films/Alien Vs. Predator) and will star Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom, and Christopher Waltz.
Hi Bryan Here…
Some pretty great classic titles this week, but a fairly weak new release week. But I love the heavy classic title weeks. It gives me a chance to watch some excellent filmmaking and remember all the films I saw when I was younger. And the best is, that most of them have the HI-DEF treatment, so it is like watching the movie for the first time. Some great titles. Classic Titles.

I would like you all to welcome Boomstick’s newest writer and contributor, CrescentFresh_22. He hangs his hat in the great city of Wichita and enjoys a good cigar and glass of scotch. He is one of two people I know who has seen Adam Sandler’s first movie, “Going Overboard” twice in a row and was one of the first people to get their hands on a copy of Boondock Saints over 10 years ago. He can be found at any point during the day watching a Troma movie marathon and writing letters to his personal hero, Billy Mitchell. Please make him feel welcome. I know this review is a little late, but the movie hasn’t been out for very long, and is still making money, so if you have not seen the new Resident Evil movie yet, maybe this review will get you in that theater seat. Enjoy.
I finally got down to my local theater to see a movie, and of all the options available I choose to see the latest edition in the Resident Evil franchise. I’ll be honest with you, it was the 3D that sold me on this movie and if the third dimension wasn’t available, I likely would have watched something different. I had not seen or heard anything about this movie, so I was really going in fresh. In that light, I am going to do my best to make sure that there are is as little spoilers here as possible.
Let’s start at the beginning… Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D uses the same team that was responsible for Avatar, and it shows. The opening shot has a scene in the rain, and rain in 3D shows depth and layers that immerse the viewer right away. The director must have loved how it looked in the rain as well because later in the movie there is another scene that takes place indoors and yet has rain effects… but who cares because it looks great! The 3D is truly stunning, and I will say now that it is worth the price of admission.
I will also let you know now that there may be a slight bias because this movie has two actresses that were crushes of mine throughout my 20’s. Milla Jovovich looks as good as ever, and the movie constantly reminded me of why I was so fond of her ever since The Fifth Element. Then there’s Ali Larter, who had my full attention from the moment she wore the whip cream bikini in Varsity Blues,. Let’s just say that both of these two lovely ladies helped the younger me out through the lonelier days of my past, and I am eternally grateful.
There are also a couple actors that I think are worth the mention. Wentworth Miller is in this movie… or as I like to call him, that guy from Prison Break with the tattoos. And guess what, he’s stuck in a prison and knows how to break out. Although in this movie he can’t escape without help, and I’m guessing it’s because he doesn’t have the tattoos. There’s also some guy named Shawn Roberts in this movie that plays the bad guy. This movie is shot in stunning 3D, and yet all the technology in the world doesn’t seem to save the one dimensional performances of these guys.
The first installment of the series directed by Paul W.S. Anderson was (and still is) my favorite chapter in this series. While the second and third installments of this series were directed by someone else, Paul W.S. Anderson has returned to direct this film, and I think I know why. While 3D has been around for some time, it is utilizing new technology and has really advanced a great deal since its first uses. To that extent, there is a race to have movies presented in 3D. I think this movie was attempting to gain as many “firsts” as possible, such as the first Real D film shot in the rain, underwater, etc.
You aren’t going to a Resident Evil movie for a powerful character study, but for a video game on film. This movie succeeds in that. You get plenty of action sequences, and great special effects. If you are still reading this, you are likely a fan of the series in some form, so find a 3D showing and go see it.
There needs to be more 3-D rain and 3-D under water sequences.
Star of the movie Milla Jovovich told a New York magazine, ““This new Resident Evil is the first one to ever open at No. 1 worldwide. It’s the biggest movie in the franchise, So we’re definitely going to make another one,” she said, adding that director Paul W.S. Anderson, her husband, already has some ideas for the fifth Resident Evil installment, and this time he wants the audience’s ideas, too.”
It seems that the powers that be are taking to Resident Evil fans via Twitter and Facebook to see what the fans want to see in the fifth installment.
