Wrath of the Titans (Blu-ray Review)

I guess the world didn’t have enough with the 2010 redux of Clash of the Titans.  That’s a good thing in my opinion.  In many ways, especially in the visual effects category, I thoroughly enjoyed the remake much more than the 80’s odyssey.  I was young and naïve back then.  Heck, back then I thought […]

Those Wrathing, Clashing ‘Titans’ Are At It Again

I think there is a certain amount of humor in the fact that Wrath of the Titans is essentially a take-two on this movie series.  Wrath was certainly felt in regards to the 2010 film (which was in no way helped by the 3D that was then used as the key example of bad usage […]

Not “Empire”: ‘Wrath of the Titans’ (Movie Review)

Did they really need a sequel to 2010’s remake of the classic Clash of the Titans?  Of course they didn’t.  But if the success of 2011’s Insidious taught us anything, it’s that any movie that meekly survives to cultivate a profit in this tumulus day and age…well…deserves a sequel.  And rightfully so.  Why not?!  I […]

G-Force 3D / 2D (Blu-ray Review)

Buckle up for thrilling edge-of-your-seat action and laugh-out-loud fun in Disney’s G-Force as this elite team of highly trained guinea pigs leaps off the screen and right into your living room.  Just as the G-Force is about to save the world, the F.B.I. shuts the secret unit down.  But these next-generation action heroes won’t be […]

Rango (Blu-ray Review)

I was very curious about Rango when it hit theaters, but for whatever reason, I was not able to catch it on the big screen.  People kept telling me that since I’m a big western film buff that I would love it, because it in fact IS a western.  So far, so good!  The theatrical […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I (Blu-ray Review)

I was really hoping that I would be getting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I to review on Blu-ray because not being the biggest advocate of the franchise these past ten years, I wanted to see whether I still liked the film or if it was an off night for me when I […]

RANGO is Fun for the Whole Family!

Not often can I recommend a movie for the entire family to see together.   Many movies are niched to a specific audience and age demographic, and many times parents struggle to find something everyone can enjoy.  RANGO fits this bill nicely.   Gore Verbinski has assembled a winning team of voices for the animated […]

A Fistful of ‘Rango’

I’m gonna start off big with this one partner – Rango is the best film I have seen so far this year.  I absolutely loved watching this movie.  It is incredibly well crafted, scored, gorgeously animated, funny, and handled wonderfully in its action.  It is also quite weird, in a good way. For a major […]

Glorious 39 (Blu-ray Review)

When I first heard of this movie I wanted to see it just for the cast alone.  Glorious 39 has Bill Nighy, Julie Christie, Christopher Lee, Jeremy Northam, David Tennant, and that’s a pretty good combination.  Plus, it was marketed as a thriller that takes place right before World War II, so between the two […]

Wild Target (Blu-ray Review)

I had first seen the trailer for Wild Target almost a year ago as it played in front of my UK import copy of Solomon Kane. It got a laugh out of me, because I liked everyone that was in it.  Flash forward almost a year later and I am now reviewing the domestic Blu-ray […]

Hit the ‘Wild Target’ on Blu-ray Next Week!

I don’t know.  I think I may becoming an Emily Blunt fan after seeing the trailer for the newest film she is going to be in with Matt Damon, The Adjustment Bureau.  Anyway, that’s not the reason we are here.  There’s less than one week before you are able to join a star-studded cast in […]

Harry Potter and the Ominous Mood and Intriguing Setup: Part 1

In a game such as Chess, the player progresses through by strategically moving their pieces into specific locations, one by one, hoping to reach a particular attack point.  Once all of the pieces are set, a series of actions could take place leading to the end of the game.  For this chapter in the Harry […]

Voldemort Leaves Nowhere to Run in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I

Well, I guess I should preface this entire review by saying first and foremost that I am not a Harry Potter fan.  I have never read the books, but many have told me that they are fantastic.  And no, I have not taken very well to the films so far (#1 and #2 are sure […]
