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 […]

Find Woody Allen Not Working Too Hard With ‘Café Society’ (Movie Review)

As far as the visual design goes for a Woody Allen film, Café Society is among his best. Going over budget for the sake of this 1930s-set farce, Allen manages to put a well-cast ensemble in a number of great costumes, as they interact within well-designed sets and beautiful locations to evoke a level of […]

‘Savages’ Is a B-Movie With Only So Much Bite

In theory, I should have been fairly excited about a gritty, R-rated thriller from director Oliver Stone.  After Stone’s last set of films, which includes Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, W., and World Trade Center, Savages seems like the kind of film that would bring him back to the edgy kind of filmmaking once utilized […]

The Town: Ultimate Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

The Town is a very fun bank heist/cops and robbers movie.  The film is Ben Affleck’s second time in the director’s chair, a follow up to the excellent Gone Baby Gone, and this film continues to prove that he is quite capable behind the camera.  The film is well made, wonderfully entertaining, and backed by […]

Green Lantern (Blu-ray Review)

And now it’s time to review a Blu-ray title that I know everyone out there is probably jealous and envious of me for.   Eat your hearts out because today we’re tackling a motion picture that took the box office by storm earlier this year.   No one could have ever predicted that this little superhero flick […]

A Little Brightest Day, A Little Blackest Night, ‘Green Lantern’ Doesn’t Quite Get It Right

It is sad when a movie, capable of being better than its actual results, goes down the inevitable path of disappointment.  Initial footage of Green Lantern was met with lukewarm reactions.  The completely computer generated costume never seemed to click with the masses.  Only the power of Ryan Reynolds’ charisma and the intrigue that stems […]

Green Lantern Flickers Between Boredom & Excitement

I remember last year sitting outside the 6,000-seat capacity Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center. It was a cool, gray-skyed morning as the line of pedestrian traffic snaked around the dewy grass.  We all shared a common eagerness to experience the discussion panel of the Green Lantern. The almost-year since then has passed quickly and the […]

Stop Into ‘The Town’ This Weekend

Although I’m certainly not biggest Ben Affleck fan around, The Town is definitely one of the movies I have been looking forward to all summer long since seeing its trailer.  Maybe it’s those devilish looking bank robbing masks that just remind me so much of  Point Break or maybe it’s the simple fact that this […]
