Live By Night (Blu-ray Review)

In terms of his directorial output, Ben Affleck has had a perfect track record with me.  Gone Baby Gone was one hell of a debut for him and surprisingly his least talked about film in his director catalog (It shouldn’t be, its fantastic).  That film was based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, which is […]

Witness the price of the American Dream when “Live By Night” arrives onto Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.

The Accountant (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Accountant makes for a stupid film title in my opinion.  I don’t care how good the movie is, I still hate the name given.  I probably couldn’t come up with anything better, but that’s why I am writing Blu-ray movie reviews and not films themselves.  However, you can’t say it doesn’t grab your attention.  Come […]

Gregg’s Best and Worst Films of 2016

It was certainly a turbulent year in the entertainment business as 2016 saw the passing of numerous stars. Bowie left us, then Alan Rickman and the list went on with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds passing just days apart. While they have moved on to whatever the next stage may bring, we will always have […]

Gregg’s Top 10 Blu-rays of 2016

It’s been a while since I amassed a favorite Blu-rays of the the year list. There was one final title I wanted to check out before concocting my ten favorites. I enjoyed Suicide Squad in the theater earlier this year, but just in case I enjoyed it even more after a second viewing, I had […]

Argo (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Ben Affleck’s directorial catalog has been nothing short of a perfect batting average.  Despite your thoughts on his films, none of them are terrible and at worst you can’t say any of them aren’t pretty damn entertaining.  There were no clumsy steps or learning curves, he started right out with some prestige.  His second film […]

The Town (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I didn’t use to be the biggest Ben Affleck fan around, but The Town was definitely one of the movies I could not wait to see after viewing its initial theatrical trailer.  Maybe it was those devilish looking bank robbing masks (click here to see what I am talking about) that reminded me so much of  Point Break‘s creepy presidential masks or maybe it […]

Too Many Variables Complicate ‘The Accountant’ (Movie Review)

Right away it should be said that while The Accountant is not quite “good” it did impress me due to its existence. It was of little surprise to find that the film was once on the Hollywood Blacklist (a list of the most liked unmade scripts), as it clearly tries to accomplish a lot and […]

It’s A Great Time to Be Alive Part 1: Justice League Special Comic-Con Footage!

While I’m holding up the home front here in Austin, TX while my peers are living it up at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 today in Hall H, videos like this that Warner Bros. just released online make it a good time to be alive.  After all, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is my favorite […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Before I begin with my review here I just want to take a moment to reflect upon the fact that when you think about it, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition is the biggest 4K UHD Blu-ray title to hit the infant format since its debut earlier this year.  Did that monumental […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition (Blu-ray Review)

It seems like forever since the mighty Aaron Neuwirth wrote of the manic news that broke at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 here, which surprised the six thousand plus fans in attendance with news that the direct follow-up to the very divided Man of Steel entry would not necessarily be a solo outing, but also would include the infamous […]

‘Batman v Superman’ Is Gorgeous And Grim, With Little Room For Fun (Movie Review)

At its very best, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice depicts sequences ripped straight out of an Alex Ross comic book. When at its worst, this is a cold, muscled-up film that has the feel of something written by Frank Miller, minus the irony. There is far too much on display for me to call […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Official Trailer 2

So here’s what went down last night in case you’re not in the know.  Ben Affleck appeared on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night to premiere the latest trailer for the highly anticipated 2016 film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  The three minute long trailer included an all-out brawl between Henry Cavill’s Superman and Affleck’s […]

SDCC 2015: Batman! Superman! Wonder Woman! wowowowow!

Nothing but spectacular doom and gloom.  Watching this in Hall H was one hell of an experience. The cast came out, all bright smiles except for Affleck. His parents were killed when he was a child, after all. Can you blame him? Or maybe it’s the divorce. When discussing the great actors who have played Batman, […]
