Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Four New Indie Titles

Only a few indie outings covered this week, but the months ahead promise to be fruitful for smaller films for sure.  But in the meantime tales of war woe, odd ghost stories, revenge plans and strong women with no affinity for the almighty all make up the subjects of the four flicks in this weeks edition of […]

Keep your enemies close and don’t trust anyone when “Black Mass” arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD. Three-time Oscar® nominee Johnny Depp (“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films) stars as notorious mobster James “Whitey” Bulger in the drama “Black Mass,” directed by Scott Cooper […]

‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2’ Was Not A Relaxing Second Dip (Movie Review)

In 2010, I was excited to see a film that sold me on Craig Robinson looking into the camera and spouting the words “Hot Tub Time Machine.”  Given that the film had such a ludicrous title to begin with, the cast going the extra mile to make something so silly it came back to being […]

Drunk History: Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD Review)

Drunk History is the brain child of Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner.  Apparently inspired by drunk ramblings of New Girl star Jake Johnson during a night out.  It originally was produced and air on the comedy website Funny Or Die.  In 2013, the web show was brought to the television format on Comedy Central.  It […]

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Blu-ray Review)

An assumption about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is that it appears to be a light-hearted adventure comedy made for a trendy crowd, due to the use of various elements in its trailers.  I would not necessarily agree, but that seems to have inspired a lot of ire in the film from some, for […]

The Adventure of a Lifetime on Blu-ray, ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’

I have never seen this one before, but I know my fellow WSB staff around here really thought the world of it so paint me curious about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  And best of all…we don’t have too long to wait for what Fox deems the must-own movie of the year on Blu-ray. […]

Comedy Bang Bang: The Complete First Season (DVD Review)

I am a big fan of Comedy Bang Bang and the comedic sensibilities of its creator and star Scott Aukerman.  I have to follow that statement by saying Comedy Bang Bang can be very divisive, as it presents a type of absurdist humor that not everyone can go along with.  Yes, the show features a […]

A.C.O.D. (Blu-ray Review)

Hi, I’m Brandon Peters and I am not an A.C.O.D.  My wife is also not a member of the Adult Children Of Divorce.  So, I really don’t know what that whole thing is like, even though growing up I’ve had friends and dated women that have had divorced parents.  I’ve only witnessed things as an […]

‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ Is Kinda Special (Movie Review)

It feels like I am already in the minority on this one, but I think it has been clear in my writing over the years that I enjoy enjoying films, as opposed to trying to be negative.  Sometimes my enjoyment falls in line with a majority of other folk who watch and write about film […]

‘A.C.O.D.’ Finds Laughs And Some Truths About Divorce (Movie Review)

Just so I can get this out of the way, A.C.O.D. stands for ‘Adult Children of Divorce’.  That actually makes the title of the movie sound less important than it is, but it will be tough to predict how often I plan on calling back to the full title of this movie.  Regardless, as both […]

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty Trailer

Trailers are not posted very often, because we tend to be busy providing the latest coverage in regards to Blu-rays, movie reviews, and most recently – Comic Con.  However, a recent trailer has launched for an upcoming film that puts Ben Stiller back in the director’s chair.  The film is The Secret Life of Walter […]

‘Our Idiot Brother’ Is A Pretty Nice Guy

In Our Idiot Brother, Paul Rudd is able to do something few actors can in the opening minutes of the film.  He makes us instantly like him.  His character’s hippy-ish, Dude-like persona is non-grating and adorable, despite the fact that his character, Ned, makes some poor choices.  It is just too bad he has to […]

Piranha (Blu-ray Review)

I have never seen the original 1978 Piranha film, but much to my surprise, my wife has.  She has seen it many times as she told me.  I don’t know.  It must be a cultural thing.  So anyway, I guess that’s why she was so anxious to check this one out in the theater many […]

Piranha 3D Bites Into Blu-ray This December!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the “Blu” water.   LOL.  The re-imagining of the classic Piranha movie was one I did not think I would enjoy, but after all the positive critic buzz I just had to check it out.  Sure enough, I LOVED every minute of it!  I […]

There’s Nothing Fishy About the Joy of Watching Piranha 3D

There was a time when this film was threatened with the possibility of not being released, only to later be threatened with having a release, but not a 3D release.  Fortunately enough, the powers at be made it possible for this film to be release as intended, thus preserving its artistic integrity.  Anyway, there is […]
