JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND: The Thunder Cookie

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012) – Directed by Brad Peyton – Starring Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine, Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens, Luis Guzman, and Kristin Davis. Maybe it’s just a consequence of getting older, but it’s nice, on occasion, to watch a family friendly movie that is incredibly simple, straightforward, and likable. There’s nothing cool…

WRESTLEMANIA 29: I’m Gonna Get Involved In a Three-Way If I Can

WrestleMania 29 (2013) – MetLife Stadium (East Rutherford, NJ) – Main Event: WWE Championship: Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson vs. John Cena.

TRANSFORMERS: PRIME – DARKNESS RISING: Maximum Overdrive

Transformers: Prime – Darkness Rising (2010) – Starring Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Steven Blum, Jeffrey Combs, Ernie Hudson, Sumalee Montano, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Dwayne Johnson. I haven’t seen the TRANSFORMERS: PRIME cartoon before. Heck, since I don’t have cable, I hadn’t even heard of it before the DVD release of DARKNESS RISING, the 5-episode…

FASTER: Where’s the Exit?

Faster (2010) – Directed by George Tillman, Jr. – Starring Dwayne Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Gugino, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Moon Bloodgood, Xander Berkeley, Maggie Grace, Mike Epps, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ,and Tom Berenger. I’m not going to research this but I have a feeling that FASTER wasn’t on too many Top Ten Films of 2010 lists.…
