xXx: Return Of Xander Cage (2017)

★★ Xander Cage is left for dead after an incident, though he secretly returns to action for a new, tough assignment with his handler Augustus Gibbons. I really can’t tell if this film set out to purposefully poke fun at itself or not.  If it did then I have to give kudos to the writers […]

xXx2: The Next Level (2005)

★½ Darius Stone, a new agent in the xXx program, is sent to Washington, D.C. to stop a coup attempt against the President of the United States. Why does this film exist?   Why?!  I would’ve stopped watching it long before the end if only my OCD self which likes to watch a series in order […]

Darkest Hour (2017)

★★★½ During the early days of World War II, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler, or fight on against incredible odds. Can you believe this has been the first time I’ve been to the cinema since 2016?!  My Dad […]

xXx (2002)

★★★ An extreme sports athlete, Xander Cage, is recruited by the government on a special mission. Think James Bond and Ethan Hunt but with less hair and more tattoos and attitude and you’d get Xander Cage.  He even has a geek to supply him with some ridiculously handy gadgets. So far no problem, after all, what […]

Finding Santa (2017)

🌟🌟 ❤ Grace is thrilled to be taking over the town’s Christmas parade, but when the man playing St. Nick breaks his arm, she needs to find a replacement, even if the replacement is unwilling.
