The Secret Life of Pets (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Secret Life of Pets was a film we never made it to theatrically this year.  It wasn’t because we did not want to see it, quite the contrary, but it was just a bad timing thing.  Time is our enemy in life.   Then came news of the fact that this title was coming to the superior […]

Taxi Driver – 40th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray Review)

So it seems that every five years we will be getting a new edition of Taxi Driver on whatever home format is available.

Finding Dory (Blu-ray Review)

As most probably expected, Finding Dory became the year’s biggest film this summer.  Following one of Disney/Pixar’s most successful, beloved and heralded films of all time was sort of a no-brainer in the wondering of who’s going to go see it.  This time they would focus on the fish with the short term memory loss, […]

A Dog’s Story Highlights ‘The Secret Life Of Pets’ (Movie Review)

It seems like a movie like this requires a reviewer to be upfront about their pet situation. I take care of a tarantula and teaching him to fetch has been tough. With that out of the way, The Secret Life of Pets is certainly a film that will tap into many things pet owners can […]

‘Finding Dory’ Just Keeps Swimming And Entertaining Audiences (Movie Review)

Sink or swim, many studios like to test audiences on whether or not they can get too much of a good thing. While Pixar had made quite a name for itself already, Finding Nemo came along in 2003 and really cemented the studio as the best in the business at that time. Thirteen years later […]
