‘The Snowman’ Melts Quickly (Movie Review)

The SnowmanI know.  Say no more.  I already know what you’re thinking.  The Snowman is a ridiculous title for a crime thriller movie.  I concur with you.  However, even if it should melt after the First Act there’s always Rebecca Ferguson in it.  I have nothing but rave things to say about her.  So why not.  I’ll give her a chance in just about anything she’s in.  There’s also some other star power in this one too, but I digress.  We’ll get to all their names in just a bit.  Before we move on let’s just be honest with ourselves here for a brief moment.  Per the film’s trailer how can you not be moved by a film that uses cute looking snowmen as a killer’s calling card?  I know, right!

Fifty Shades of Grey (Blu-ray Review)

Fifty Shades of GreyOkay.  I am sure that I will probably never hear the end about this, but I really, really enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey.  Now don’t get me wrong – I’m smart enough to say it’s not great, but it’s not terrible either.  To be completely honest, this is exactly what I expected from the film.  Fifty Shades of Grey is based on the EXTREMELY popular and unfortunately poorly-reviewed novel of the same name by E.L.James, but boy did it ever get the housewives talking.  And better yet…it’s on Blu-ray now!

Kori’s Top 10 Films of 2014

Top 10Well another year has come and gone, leaving in its dust quite a year in Hollywood. We had the tragic and shocking deaths of Philip Seymour Hoffman and the beloved Robin Williams. Sony released, pulled and re-released the controversial film, The Interview, due to cyber threats and their systems getting hacked by North Korea. This move by Sony threw us all into a fury, making us as Americans wonder why we are negotiating with such a terrible person (Kim Jong Un). I am sure glad that Sony came to their senses because The Interview was HILARIOUS!! Continue reading ‘Kori’s Top 10 Films of 2014′

Freddy vs. JasonOnce again, the doctors of Broadcast Thought, H. Eric Bender, M.D., Praveen R. Kambam, M.D., andVasilis K.

The Wolf of Wall Street (Blu-ray Review)

At last, after months of waiting since last Christmas, I was able to view my favorite movie of last year, Wolf of Wall Street, in the privacy of my own home.  As expected, once again, it did not let me down.  I re-experienced 3 hours of pure enjoyment. That’s right, I said 3 hours of enjoyment once again!!! Even without popcorn and an Icee! Martin Scorsese has truly outdone himself with this film.  Clocking in at an impressive 179 minutes, Wolf of Wall Street has set a record as Mr. Scorsese’s longest fictional film by beating out Casino by a mere one minute.  Wolf is, in my opinion, by far the director’s most exciting film in years.  Second runner up would be The Departed, but that’s a different story and review all together.  Looking back, how this film did not get a NC-17 rating is beyond me as Scorsese has pushed the boundaries of the R-rating to the absolute limits with a combination of drugs, strippers, sex, depravity and oh so much more.

The Last Day on Mars (Blu-ray Review)

After seeing the trailer a couple months back I will admit that I was really looking forward to this one.  I mean who doesn’t like space exploration movies, right?  I am a huge fan of those myself.  When I found out The Last Days on Mars was on the front doorstep today I couldn’t wait to get home and watch it.  My boyfriend, however, did not share my same level of excitement for the movie after he read so many negative reviews.  In fact, that is to put it mildly.  He was down right upset about having to sit through it, but of course he would sacrifice 90 minutes for me.  So with that being said I should have known from the moment the Blu-ray jammed up our PS4 for the first time ever before we even hit play, causing him to have to reboot the whole system, that this was going to be a disaster.  I guess I am not very good subtle hints, huh?  However, I didn’t let that little mishap damper my spirits.  As of late I have been trying to be a cup half full kinda person.  Okay, lets get into it shall we?

‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Huffs And Puffs And Blows Away Its Competition (Movie Review)

Wolf of Wall Street TNAt last, after months of teasing trailers, I was able to sit in on a pre-screening of my most anticipated movie of the year, Wolf of Wall Street. As expected, it did not let me down. I had 3 hours of pure enjoyment. That’s right, I said 3 hours!!! Even without popcorn! Martin Scorsese has truly outdone himself with this film. Clocking in at an impressive 179 minutes, Wolf of Wall Street has set a record as Mr. Scorsese’s longest fictional film by beating out Casino by a mere one minute. Wolf is, in my opinion, by far the director’s most exciting film in years. Second runner up would be The Departed. How this film did not get a NC-17 rating is beyond me. Scorsese has pushed the boundaries of R rating to the absolute limits with a combination of drugs, strippers, sex, depravity and oh so much more. Not that I am complaining about that, because in no way am I. So do I have your attention yet?? Ok, I cannot wait any longer to dive into this brilliant film.

Join Marley & Friends For An Awesome Day Of Family Fun

It’s events like these that really make me sad that I don’t live on the glorious West Coast.  If I did, I would be here for this.  It’s not because of Marley & Me, but instead for my love of animals.  Although I can never bring myself to ever watch Marley & Me, something tells me I could probably stomach Marley & Me: The Puppy Years.  I think!  Anyway, the Blu-ray comes out on August 16th, but all the fun is to be had on the 13th.  Read the full press release below for more details.
