Scream Queens: The Complete First Season (DVD Review)

Because writer/director/producer Ryan Murphy was not busy enough with American Horror Story and American Crime Story, he also decided to follow up Fox’s Glee with another over-the-top series that takes on the horror genre to a lighter degree with Scream Queens. Packed with both veteran and younger stars, the concept is fun enough, with this […]

Maggie (Blu-ray Review)

They bill Arnold Schwarzenegger as being back, better than ever in the post-apocalyptic story, Maggie, arriving on Blu-ray July 7th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.  What do you think of that statement?  Do you believe there is any validity to that?  I don’t know about you, but that’s why I was most curious to tackle this one.  Sure it will […]

Maggie Walks On Blu-ray This Summer

I almost rented this flick on iTunes over the weekend, but time was not my friend.  Low and behold, this press release just dropped.  Someone up there must be looking out for me.  Haha.   After all, I would love my first time with this film I am hearing so much praise about to be on […]

Ender’s Game (Blu-ray Review)

It was unfortunate to not see this film take off big, theatrically.  I was quite impressed by what I saw in theaters, given my adoration for the book, but the film could not quite connect with the masses in the same way that something like The Hunger Games has proven to do.  Based on the […]

Dysfunctional Family Fun, Minus The Fun In ‘August: Osage County’ (Movie Review)

This matters very little in terms of my thoughts on the film, but I do not much care for the way this film is being marketed.  August: Osage County is a lot of things.  It is a well-acted drama, with some comedic moments.  It is based on an award-winning play by Tracy Letts.  It involves […]

‘Ender’s Game’ Is A Fine Speaker For The Book (Movie Review)

Ender’s Game, the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card, is one of my favorite books of all time.  The concept of a film adaptation has always been an intriguing one to me, but something I had long put off as ever actually happening.  These feelings came from a younger me, but I […]

Ender’s Game Teaser Trailer Has Arrived

Ender’s Game has continued to seem like one of those things that would just never happen.  I am a huge fan of the award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card, but given the challenge that the story represents in creating a film that could really work, I can see why the film has remained in development […]

Take ‘The Call’ on Blu-ray This June

As much as I had my reservations about seeing this film in the theaters, I actually enjoyed it for what it was.  It never took itself too seriously and it had a little something special at the end that put a grin on my face.  Say what you want about The Call…it just ain’t that […]

Rango (Blu-ray Review)

I was very curious about Rango when it hit theaters, but for whatever reason, I was not able to catch it on the big screen.  People kept telling me that since I’m a big western film buff that I would love it, because it in fact IS a western.  So far, so good!  The theatrical […]

RANGO is Fun for the Whole Family!

Not often can I recommend a movie for the entire family to see together.   Many movies are niched to a specific audience and age demographic, and many times parents struggle to find something everyone can enjoy.  RANGO fits this bill nicely.   Gore Verbinski has assembled a winning team of voices for the animated […]

A Fistful of ‘Rango’

I’m gonna start off big with this one partner – Rango is the best film I have seen so far this year.  I absolutely loved watching this movie.  It is incredibly well crafted, scored, gorgeously animated, funny, and handled wonderfully in its action.  It is also quite weird, in a good way. For a major […]
