‘Colossal’: Destroy All Inner-Monsters (Movie Review)

The problems that come from losing control can be intense. Substance abuse, namely alcohol in the case of Colossal, can both lead to problems and unmask deeper issues from within. That sounds pretty heavy, but fortunately for genre director Nacho Vigalondo, he’s embedded these themes within one of the more creative giant monster movies to […]

Alice Through The Looking Glass (Blu-ray Review)

Following Sweeney Todd, I was very excited for Tim Burton to be taking on Alice In Wonderland.  It looked like not only would it have the Burton stamp, but it would be sort of a follow up to the original tale.  However, the film came out the same weekend in 2010 that I got married. […]

Perhaps it is the bitter taste still left in my mouth after having watched Tim Burton’s blockbuster that was Alice in Wonderland, but I have much warmer feelings towards this sequel, directed by James Bobin. Alice Through the Looking Glass may not be improving much on a sense of substance, but the level of design […]

In my belief, most salesmen, prophets, religious establishments and even motivational speakers will tell you life is full of second chances.  And like the fictional character of Jordan Chase in Season 5 of Showtime’s Dexter, if you want something badly enough in life, you just have to “Take It.”  Quite honestly, I have always lived […]

There was never a question as to whether or not I was going to see Interstellar theatrically.  On that same topic, there was also never even a question as to whether my first time checking it out would be in IMAX either.  The only question I had unanswered throughout this whole year up until a […]

All I knew about the first Rio going into this was that it was the film that topped the box office the weekend Scream 4 was released.  It was a huge hit, taking almost half a billion dollars worldwide.  In order to properly review Rio 2, I had to watch Rio before this and wow…I’m […]
