The Magnificent Seven (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Try as I might, I just could not get to Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven (The original, a Western re-imagining of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai) in the theater.  I had a free ticket from The Magnificent Seven collection Blu-ray set I picked up at Best Buy to revisit it before this new one.

‘The Magnificent Seven’ Ride Into An Average Sunset (Movie Review)

It seems funny calling The Magnificent Seven a remake. Beyond knowing that 1960’s Magnificent Seven was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, this basic story of innocent people recruiting a ragtag group to help them stop an evil threat has been seen many times over the decades. Even Pixar has used this formula with […]

This Ain’t Your Daddy’s ‘Southpaw’ (Movie Review)

Southpaw is defined in the sport of boxing as the stance where the boxer has his right hand and right foot forward, leading with right jabs, and following with a left cross right hook.  Southpaw is the normal stance for a left-handed boxer.  Fictional boxer Rocky Balboa, for example, was a southpaw.  Therefore, I think you can pretty much conjure up that Jake Gyllenhaal’s […]

The Equalizer (Blu-ray Review)

Truth be told I wanted nothing to do with The Equalizer when it came out theatrically.  I even went as far as to not make any plans to attend the press screening of it when it dropped in my area.  What kind of reviewer does that?  I can tell you.  It’s a bad one.  I guess […]

The Equalizer Brings Balance To The Blu-ray Format This December

Here’s another title that slipped past me theatrically this year at the movies, but I have heard enough good word of mouth about The Equalizer, starring Academy Award Winner Denzel Washington, that I want to take the next step on the Blu-ray format and give it a chance.  Looks like I’ll get my cake and eat it […]

‘The Equalizer’ Takes Too Long To Find Balance (Movie Review)

What do you see when you look at these older actors taking care of business?  A week after writing about Liam Neeson’s latest foray into the realm of B-movie thrillers, I now get to write about Denzel Washington’s latest action/thriller.  All I can say is The Equalizer certainly takes its time.  By the end of […]

An Ashley Judd Sighting Amplifies ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ on Blu-ray!

Stop the press!  I don’t care if it’s only a brief moment…word has it that Ashley Judd makes an appearance in Olympus Has Fallen and that’s good enough for me!  It warms my heart that she’s actually in a movie that’s critically reviewed as being okay because God I swear she has made more bad […]

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ And A 90s Action Movie Rises (Movie Review)

It is funny how some movies strike me differently than others, despite their similarities.  Olympus Has Fallen has all the jingoism, xenophobia, and silliness to match awful films like Red Dawn or Red Tails.  It is also cheap and ugly enough at times to match an awful film like A Good Day To Die Hard.  […]
