Tim Burton Seems At Home With ‘Peculiar Children’ (Movie Review)

Perhaps it was just a matter of time until we saw director Tim Burton make a YA novel adaptation. It makes plenty of sense, as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children allows Burton to explore an entire household filled with loners, outcasts and “freaks”, as opposed to focusing on just one. Instead of following just […]

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 […]

Ender’s Game (Blu-ray Review)

It was unfortunate to not see this film take off big, theatrically.  I was quite impressed by what I saw in theaters, given my adoration for the book, but the film could not quite connect with the masses in the same way that something like The Hunger Games has proven to do.  Based on the […]

Ender’s Game Teaser Trailer Has Arrived

Ender’s Game has continued to seem like one of those things that would just never happen.  I am a huge fan of the award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card, but given the challenge that the story represents in creating a film that could really work, I can see why the film has remained in development […]

Hugo (Blu-ray Review)

So the Oscars came and went and Hugo won like 23 of them or so along with The Artist. I jest, but Hugo did get nominated for 11 Oscars including Best Picture and ended the night with 5 statuettes. That’s a great ratio. Hugo won 5 technical awards – it won for Best Cinematography, Art […]

Whimsical Charm Runs Through Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’ Like Clockwork

I feel that there are two ways to really delve into Martin Scorsese’s 3D adventure/drama Hugo.  On the one hand, I could address the fact that this is less a film for children, as the marketing would imply, and more a loving tribute to the creation of magic via the film format during the early […]
