Truly a Sin: 'A Dame to Kill For' Is a Tedious Experience

Truly a Sin: 'A Dame to Kill For' Is a Tedious Experience

Thursday, August 28, 2014  |  Bob Grimm

It feels like writer-director Robert Rodriguez delivered the first Sin City a million years ago.

However, it was just nine years ago, back in 2005. Rodriguez was reaching the apex of his creative strengths, making good movies for relatively small budgets and doing much of the work himself. Sin City was t...

Blu-Ray Review: Tom Hardy's 'Locke' Is One of the Year's Most Overrated Films

Friday, August 22, 2014  |  Bob Grimm
