Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Five New Indie Titles (w/Bonus 5-Star Short Link!)

The year is closing down, but that doesn’t mean the indie film fare train is in anyway starting to cinematically slow down.  (Aka there is life besides end of year Oscar fare film freaks!)  Teen detective stories, road racing outings, wild bio-pics, women in the wasteland and cheaters getting their due all make up the […]

The Girl on the Train (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review)

Before I begin this 4K Ultra HD review I wanted to give a big shout out to all my new Facebook friends on the 4K Ultra HD Home Cinema Group (join all the conversations here) for their support.  So let’s get down to business now.  The Girl on the Train instantly had two things going for […]

The Girl On The Train (Blu-ray Review)

The Girl on the Train instantly had two things going for it within my brain.  It features two actresses that will get me in the theater no matter what the film’s subject matter is about.  I’m respectfully talking Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson.  Ever since Edge of Tomorrow, Sicario and Mission Impossible Rogue Nation I’m a sucker for both of them.

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, […]

‘The Girl On The Train’ Goes Nowhere Special (Movie Review)

Part of me would like to think The Girl on the Train is in on the joke. Here’s a film that no doubt understands how silly its story is, but happily lets the three main female cast members channel plenty of energy to provide strong performances. It manages to feature men these women obsess over, […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar “X-Men” Children (Movie Review)

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a “peculiar” name in its own right, don’t you think?  So here’s the deal.  There’s a guy I know in my work/personal life that has been talking about this film for over a year now.  He seems to be quite the movie connoisseur, but here’s the kicker.  He […]

‘Minions’ Is Just Colorful Noise (Movie Review)

It has happened. The Minions now have their own film. Admittedly I am not a Minions fan. I have seen both Despicable Me films and have not been fond of their antics. A whole film about them is not exactly something that was going to rock my world, but I am happy to give everything […]

Tammy (Blu-ray Review)

If there is one film that deservingly has the right and proudly should be able to give the middle finger write at box office pundits (that don’t write for Forbes), its Tammy.  This $20 million budgeted “one for me” film opening with a good $21 million opening weekend over 4th of July and because it […]

Tammy Is Sad, Messy, and Occasionally Endearing (Movie Review)

It is unfortunate that Tammy does not quite work overall.  Here we have a character-based, R-rated comedy, featuring a large number of female characters, with ideas that extend beyond big-budgeted set pieces, and it is arriving in theaters just in time for the Fourth of July.  Melissa McCarthy fans may certainly enjoy the opportunity given […]

Bateman’s ‘Bad Words’ Is Funny (Movie Review)

Bad Words has a good logline:  A middle-aged man competes in a national spelling bee.  It helps that the film is quite funny.  The humor is certainly of the pitch-black variety, with a good dose of raunchiness thrown in as well, but having the spirit of an indie at least lends Bad Words some distinct […]
