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 […]

‘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.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Forever (Movie Review)

I am a Batman fan. People who know me well enough are pretty clear on that. With that said, while Batman and the characters in his universe provide more for me to think about, I also grew up reading and watching Spider-Man (and occasionally his amazing friends). I may find something more inherently interesting in […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Enemies Unite Sizzle

Here’s the last trailer I plan on posting for now.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had a Super Bowl spot, but rather than post that, I went for the 4-minute extended trailer, which basically highlights that this big summer sequel is going to be all about Oscorp throwing everything they’ve got at Peter Parker.  Will it […]

Comic-Con 2013: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

This is a big jump to way towards the end of Friday’s activities in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con this year, but I figure Spider-man is popular enough to have more people curious about what went on here than other panels I was able to witness. Here is the official description of what […]

The Amazing Spider-Man (Blu-ray Review)

I guess I’ll just get this over right from the get go.  You may proceed to throw proverbial stones if you want.  I know I’m in the minority here.  Spider-Man 3 was my favorite flick of the Raimi trilogy.  Ouch!  Ooh!  Ah!  That hurts.  But hey!  I have my reasons for liking it, and regardless […]
