Allied (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I’m a big fan of the spy/espionage subgenre of dramas, thrillers and action films.  Whether it be James Bond, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, Jason Bourne or Bridge of Spies, I’m down for some those deceitful antics.  While 2015 was the year of the spy film (Or return, there were a lot), […]

It’s Love And War Between The ‘Allied’ (Movie Review)

It seems as if there is something to praise for making the kind of movie that suggests the phrase, “They don’t make ‘em like this anymore.” Allied seems to be gunning for that reaction. The Robert Zemeckis-directed suspense drama is the sort of old-fashioned war/romance story that assumes you can enjoy it based on the […]

The Big Short (Blu-ray Review)

Adam McKay, the director of Anchorman and Step Brothers, has now won an Oscar for making a film that works tremendously well as a scathingly funny indictment of America’s most recent financial crisis. Here is a movie that eschews proper characters arcs in favor of being a terrifying lecture about how things went so wrong […]

Reilly’s drum set, you now have the film that awarded him an Oscar nomination for Best Director and more. Based on the best-selling book by Michael Lewis, THE BIG SHORT details the true story of four outsiders who […]

A Tough Drive And the ‘Fury’ Five (Movie Review)

World War II has been the source of a lot of great war movies, let alone movies in general.  It seems to have a near endless supply of material, when it comes to developing new ideas for screenplays.  Fury may not be the first film about a tank crew, but it does seem like a […]

12 Years A Slave (Blu-ray Review)

12 Years A Slave is a truly gripping story that most certainly serves as an unflinching look at a horrible period of a man’s life, within a time period where injustice against man may have been at its peak in America, but does so with a mood that seems to distinguish itself from other period […]

The Counselor: Unrated Extended Cut (Blu-ray Review)

For film lovers, the idea of putting director Ridley Scott and author Cormac McCarthy together for a film seemed like a grand idea.  Between Scott’s abilities to provide thrilling atmosphere and a compelling depiction of process in his films and McCarthy’s skill for writing about the darkest sides of humanity, while sometimes adding a slight […]

Catch Ridley Scott’s Edge-of-Your-Seat Thriller, “The Counselor,” on February 11!

To be fair, I did not come up with the title of this post nor would I have wanted to write that, that was on the press release e-mail.  That said, while I was initially disappointed in theaters by Ridley Scott’s The Counselor, I am one to pay attention to his extended/director cuts of his […]

Brian White’s Indisputable Heavyweight ‘Top 10 Films of 2013’

The calendar year of 2013 was a tough one for me in the film department.  However, unlike my recent Top 10 Blu-ray list over here, where I struggled to even find ten Blu-rays that I really really liked in 2013 (only leaving off Cloud Atlas), I find myself faced with a smorgasbord of films that […]

‘12 Years A Slave,’ A Powerful Memoir Skillfully Brought To Life (Movie Review)

It can be a challenge to express why certain dramas work on a viewer more than others.  A film like 12 Years A Slave, which is based on the true life chronicle of man kidnapped and forced into slavery, could function on a level that dwells purely on misery and offers little beyond sadness for […]

World War Z (Blu-ray Review)

It felt like this movie had been in production for so long that it would take the second coming for it to be any good.  However, before we get into whether or not God’s son came back or not let’s examine the ways World War Z has suffered from setbacks.  First thing first, Brad Pitt’s […]
