Transporter 3 makes its predecessors look like masterpieces. Do you know why? Because they weren't directed by Olivier Megaton. Jason Statham is an action star, he performs excellent stunts and the fight choreography was good. Robert Knepper was a... Read the full review »

Misery (1990)

Misery (1990)

9 / 10
Misery showcases one of the best villains in movie history. Annie Wilkes is a complex character full of depth. She's portrayed as a psychopath who believes she is caring for her idol, but deep down I felt sympathy for her. As her past life is reve... Read the full review »
