  • The Sweet Sweet Nicky Chocolate Review of Kick Ass (Nerds Girls and Violence It's like a dream only better)

    I had promised myself that I wasn't going to see this movie based on two things. First being Nick Cage, second being that it looked like a bunch of nonsense. However, I just had to go out and read the graphic novel because I was told that it far surpasses... More

    I've had this burning question in my mind for a number of years. How many years, I'm not sure... things get foggy around High School. But I regress. (yeah, I know the word is digress. lame attempt at a joke.) The question is which was the better... More
