There was a lot of good reason to be excited about the first season of Gotham. The show is a crime-drama developed by Rome’s Bruno Heller, based on characters appearing in and published by DC Comics from the Batman universe. All of that was certainly enough to get this Batman fan excited and the mix of actor choices I was confident in and new faces that seemed to be representing the show proper, there was enough reason to want to check out a show like this. Whether or not it delivered is what we are here for now, so check out the official review of the first season of the hit series and what this Blu-ray set has to offer.
Furious 7 is the little engine that could in my opinion. Not even the untimely and tragic death of one of the franchise’s main stars, Paul Walker, was able to completely derail this speeding train from moving forward and becoming an unstoppable global phenomenon grossing over $1.5 billion dollars worldwide at the box office. Make no doubt about it. The Fast and the Furious franchise has been quite the global exploit in the past two entries, but the nagging question still remained for me going into this last April. Does the seemingly unstoppable train ride lose any speed or momentum with James Wan helming the project and the loss of Walker, or does it continue on in the quick, speedy and high-octane fashion we’re all accustomed to? These questions and many more will be addressed down below. So men, women and children, I need to ask you to buckle your seat belts please, put all your appendages inside the car and enjoy the ride as it’s about to get very fast and furious in this post. Vroom! Continue reading ‘Furious 7: Extended Edition (Blu-ray Review)’

In a year that has featured many entertaining spy films, Barely Lethal is a spy comedy for teens, with an ideal to have fun with the genre and serve as its own clever entry into it. With a cast featuring both hip young stars like Hailee Steinfeld and Sophie Turner, along with veteran Samuel L. Jackson, there was certainly enough effort put in to add quality to the simple premise. But does this film serve as something truly worthwhile, or is it just another disposable teen comedy with some fun action beats? The Blu-ray is now here for you to find out.

When the Blu-ray includes trailers for The Condemned, See No Evil, See No Evil 2, and Leprechaun: Origins, you know you’re about to see the finest film of the year. Lo and behold, those rascals at WWE have done it again. I don’t follow wrestling, so I have no clue who The Big Show is, but with a name like that, how can you go wrong? Vendetta offers enough goofiness to sustain ten films, with acting so over the top and action so brutal and bloody, I have to ask myself, “is this possibly my new favorite film?” (No.) Continue reading ‘Vendetta (Blu-ray Review)’
I have a fascination with Nicolas Cage that is paramount to most things in my life. I googled bio-sonar once because I was on a walk in the dead of the night on the hem of a field of straw far from existence and I thought I heard Nicolas Cage’s voice from Adaptation and immediately jumped to the conclusion that we must have a secret way of communicating, a harmonic composition if I may. Then I thought to myself, “that must be my new cochlear implant malfunctioning.” And then I thought — “I don’t have a cochlear implant” — and then I thought, “I am a microbat bat and Nicolas Cage is a horseshoe bat and we can communicate through echolocation.” I had this friend who was telling me a story once about how he’d met Nicolas Cage, after the conversation I thought about what an imaginative yarn my friend was spinning, yet I found myself jogging and soon running to said location and their I saw an Owl. It looked me in the eye and I knew it was him. I chased after it but it soon left me to the light of the moon and there I did the same hand gesture that they do in Mad Max when someone dies — in a state of displeasure I comforted myself by walking home and watching a crowd pleaser,The Runner.
