Girls: The Final Season (Blu-ray Review)

When Lena Dunham’s Girls debuted, I gave it a watch. I didn’t make it past the pilot. It turned me off big time and I hated pretty much every character. Sometime during season 3, I was unemployed and binging some HBO stuff I hadn’t seen and decided on giving Girls another shot. The problem I […]

Silence (Blu-ray Review)

This past winter gave us the latest film from Martin Scorsese. Silence garnered strong reviews and made a number of top ten lists, but was not able to find much of an audience in theaters or score any major awards, beyond an Oscar nomination for Best Cinematography. That’s not necessarily unexpected, but I do expect […]

Martin Scorsese’s ‘SILENCE’ is Broken on Blu-ray this March

Here’s one that gets better every time I think about it: Hailed by critics as “brilliant” (Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times), “powerful” (Brian Truitt, USA Today), “stunning” (Helen O Hara, GQ), and “gorgeous” (Stephanie Zacharek, Time), visionary director Martin Scorsese’s entrancing epic SILENCE makes its home entertainment debut on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand March […]

Girls: The Complete Fifth Season (Blu-ray Review)

Its crazy to think that Lena Dunhams’ talked about and controversial (is it?) show Girls is already coming to its end this year (and soon mind you).  It feels like just yesterday I was testing it out and turning my nose up to it.  Luckily after Season 2, I decided to suck it up and […]

Aaron’s Terrific Top Ten Films of 2016

The end of 2016 means an end to another year of great cinema. I had a tough time putting together this final list of films, as there was a strong selection to go through. Having watched over 175 films theatrically this year, it was fun to narrow things down to a final list of ten […]

‘Silence’ Probes The Depths Of Scorsese’s Religious Thoughts (Movie Review)

Martin Scorsese has never backed away from involving religion in his films. We’ve seen overt attempts to tackle his perception of certain topics like in The Last Temptation of Christ. There have also been instances where his characters are given extra dimensions based on their religion, like with Mean Streets. Silence is a strong push […]

AFI Fest 2016: Paterson (Movie Review)

It would be interesting to account for the number of big moments found in all of Jim Jarmusch’s films. Paterson is the 12th feature film from the acclaimed indie director and it continues to show Jarmusch’s focus on existential drama, with an absence of much in the way of impactful moments. Give or take some […]

‘Midnight Special’ Provides A Stunning Close Encounter With Complete Filmmaker Freedom (Movie Review)

There’s something pretty cool about seeing an indie director with a knack for human drama take on a genre film. Okay, so that applies to almost any newbie director handed the keys to a franchise, but how about one who has developed the story himself and is allowed by a studio to make such a […]

The Coen Brothers achieve just that with Inside Llewyn Davis. Oscar Isaac delivers an incredibly stirring performance, delivering deep soulful ballads that will leave the viewer entranced. Living a squanderous life of some […]
