Sully (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Who didn’t know the story of Captain Chesley Sullenberger?  His courageous landing on the Hudson River was one of the biggest stories when the year flipped over to 2009.  Its crazy to think that its going to be eight years ago next month.  Its almost like its fresh on the brain.  As with all things […]

‘Sully’ Is A Non-Essential Look At Heroism (Movie Review)

It can be tough to imagine why Sully is a film that needs to be seen. Working as a dramatization of an event that took place not too long ago, it would appear as if audiences already have a good handle on what took place with the “Miracle on the Hudson”. However, it appears director […]

‘London Has Fallen’ Down A Deep Hole (Movie Review)

I did not see this coming, but London Has Fallen proves to be the movie that shows what nuance Michael Bay can bring to his films by comparison. This generic and borderline offensive sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen is downright schlocky in the way it proposes to back up its $100 million budget with […]

I, Frankenstein (Blu-ray Review)

From the producers and creators of the Underworld franchise comes the next step in monster evolution: I, Frankenstein. I missed this one at the show but was looking forward to the Blu-ray just for the fact that it’s been severely bashed since those first awful looking trailers debuted months ago. I usually don’t judge a film by a trailer […]

An Ashley Judd Sighting Amplifies ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ on Blu-ray!

Stop the press!  I don’t care if it’s only a brief moment…word has it that Ashley Judd makes an appearance in Olympus Has Fallen and that’s good enough for me!  It warms my heart that she’s actually in a movie that’s critically reviewed as being okay because God I swear she has made more bad […]

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ And A 90s Action Movie Rises (Movie Review)

It is funny how some movies strike me differently than others, despite their similarities.  Olympus Has Fallen has all the jingoism, xenophobia, and silliness to match awful films like Red Dawn or Red Tails.  It is also cheap and ugly enough at times to match an awful film like A Good Day To Die Hard.  […]

Go Gonzo With ‘The Rum Diary’

In the 1998 Terry Gilliam film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which has Johnny Depp playing one of the various incarnations of writer Hunter S. Thompson, you could use many different adjectives and phrases to describe it, but a decidedly fun romp is not the one I would immediately jump to.  With The Rum […]

Battle: Los Angeles (Blu-ray Review)

Much like my Blu-ray review of last year’s Burlesque (see here), I know I’m going to get bashed here.  For some reason, the critics didn’t receive Battle: Los Angeles too well.  Well la deed da.  What the f#$k do they know?  I guess they are all dead inside and truly don’t know how to have […]

Dive Into Blu-ray’s ‘Rabbit Hole’

Living in Cleveland, sometimes you miss the best films of the year in the theater.  It’s very easy to do.  The little indie films, if they come here, only last for about a week or two and play  in obscure theater locations.  So with that being said, Rabbit Hole is a film I’m truly looking forward […]

Make Sure To Bring A Game Controller To Play ‘Battle: Los Angeles’

Along with many people with similar interests to me, I am a big video game player.  Recently, I have played the latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise, which I have joked around with my friends about how over-the-top all of the action and story moments are.  While watching Battle: Los Angeles, I could […]
