The Legend of Tarzan (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Legend of Tarzan feels like a film that was set up to fail from the very start.  How much interest is there really with a modern day telling of Tarzan where your leading man sports blonde locks?  The trailers were personally satisfying, but something about it just reeked of stay away to me.  That’s […]

‘The Legend Of Tarzan’ Fails To Swing To Great Heights (Movie Review)

For all The Legend of Tarzan has going for it, which includes big stars, big budget effects and a proven director, the resulting film is a bland misfire. Attempting to create new interest in a 100+ year old pulp hero is not a terrible idea, but this film has seemingly no ambition to do much […]

‘The East’ Points You Towards Freegan Eco-Terrorists (Movie Review)

The East is a low-budget thriller about espionage and eco-terrorism.  It comes from writer/director Zal Batmanglij and co-writer/star Brit Marling, who previously collaborated together on 2012’s The Sound of My Voice.  With that film, along with 2011’s Another Earth, I have been quite impressed with Marling’s work in features thus far, and The East continues […]

Sink Your Teeth Into True Blood:The Complete Fifth Season On Blu-ray!

I actually fell off the True Blood band wagon early last June.  After being a devoted fan for 4 seasons I kind of felt let down by the weak fairy story lines, but I’m willing to give it another chance.  I’m willing to extend the olive branch and see what I missed out on.  All […]

Battleship (Movie Review): Iron Man Meets John Carter in the Navy

When I first heard they were making a live adaptation of the infamous Parker Bros. (now owned by Hasbro since 1991) game, Battleship, I thought oh my, what a huge naval epic it could be.  The possibilities were endless, in my opinion.  A grand scale naval adventure hasn’t seen success on the silver screen in […]

‘Battleship’: The Most Explosive Board Game Of The Year

The trickiest thing about writing a review for Battleship, the film based on the popular board game, which now pits Tim Riggins of Mars against a fleet of aliens that challenge the Navy to deadly war games…or something, is capturing why I did not really care for the film as much as I did other, […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2011 & Other Yearly Wrap-Up Stuff

To me, 2011 was a pretty unusual year.  I say that because I found there to be an unusual amount of great films that came out in both the realm of mainstream feature films and the realm of art house and independent features.  This year, like any year, had its share of duds as well, […]

‘Melancholia’ Is A Beautiful Portrait Of Depression And The End

Based on the peppy title I have given to this review, audiences should know they should be bracing themselves for doom; although I could be misleading you, were you not to look further.  Earlier in 2011, Terrence Malick arose from the depths of wherever he goes in the many years in between his films to […]
