Movie Reviews: Sucker Punch Directed by Zack Snyder Release Date: March 25, 2011 What can I say about director Zack Snyder? He is a man who goes for a certain style.

Movie Review: ‘What Happens in Vegas’

What Happens in Vegas was a huge surprise to me. I had seen the previews, thought they looked pretty funny, but wasn’t really impressed. I was planning on renting it when it came out.
