Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Four New Indie Titles

A fewer array of indies dissected as end of year mandatory viewing duties begin to take hold of my precious movie watching schedule (so many films, so little time!), but there are some surprises here nevertheless.  Tales involving deadly relationship intrigue, a hot widow who gets her dates via the occult, an examination of the […]

Central Intelligence (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Central Intelligence is a movie that came and went theatrically that I cared nothing about.  It wasn’t that I didn’t want to see it, but I just didn’t want to see it theatrically if that makes any sense.  I believed Central Intelligence to just be one of those throwaway films that we merely deem mediocre or passable.  I […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Five New Indie Titles

There’s no shortage of lessor known film fare this week, though not all the movie news is good.  But frankly scouring the smaller cinema is a lot like gambling – even though the house has the advantage there’s always hope for that rare big payday.  (Aka gems and duds will get reviewed!)  Going from high […]

‘Eye In The Sky’ Targets Tricky Subject Matter (Movie Review)

In an age where drone warfare has become a go-to topic for many action blockbusters dabbling in societal commentary, Eye in the Sky pauses everything to go over what it means to carry out one drone mission. With a fine cast in place, director Gavin Hood manages to build plenty of tension over the course […]

Top Ten: Aaron’s Most Disappointing Films & The Worst Of 2014

Never a post of joy, but every year does see the release of films that are not very good.  I never seek out films with the purpose of hating them and a majority of these are not without redeemable elements, but if I have at least 10 films on a list that I consider better […]

‘Exodus’ Commands Visual Grandeur, But Is Plagued By A Lack Of Emotion (Movie Review)

Exodus: Gods and Kings is an epic.  There is no way around that.  Regardless of my thoughts on the film as a whole, director Ridley Scott has made a film that is grand in scale, fully realized in its depiction of an ancient time, and littered with extras, sets, props, and obvious visual effects in […]

BOOOO! Brandon’s Top 10 Modern Horror Remakes

Take the “Booo!” in the title as either the ghostly scare sound or the hoards of fanboys’ reactions when something gets remade.  Over the last 15 years or so we’ve seen plenty of reboots, reimaginings and remakes come to fruition throughout each film going year.  The horror genre has certainly been the genre the most […]

Need For Speed (Blu-ray Review)

Video game movies have yet to really “take off” like the comic book ones.  There’s many attempts, but aside from the Resident Evil franchise, none have really taken off.  They don’t usually dominate the box office and are usually met with mixed critical reviews at best.  However, fans will tell you, these games have such […]

BREAKING BAD: THE COMPLETE SERIES arrives on Blu-ray and DVD 6/3

The who knocks returns.  One of my favorite television series of all time is coming home to Blu-ray in full this June.  This may sound confusing to those who are already aware of the elaborate box set placed inside a container shaped like one of the barrels seen so often throughout Breaking Bad, but if […]

How Much Need Was There For ‘Need For Speed’? (Movie Review)

Need for Speed is a lot like a shady used car salesman.  The film presents the viewer with the shininess of something new; in this case a video game movie that relies on a heavy use of practical effects to show off fancy cars driving fast.  However, beneath this kinetic frosting are a lot of […]

Jesse’s Braking Just Fine In ‘Need For Speed’ (Movie Review)

Alright, let’s set the record straight.  I like Aaron Paul.  I like his work in Breaking Bad and the remake of The Last House on the Left, but I have my reservations going into Need For Speed last Thursday evening.  For starters, it’s based off of a video game.  Now let’s all be honest with […]
