‘Last Flag Flying’ Has A Theatrical Mission (Movie Review)

After completing his epic (Boyhood) and reliving some glory years (Everybody Wants Some!!), director Richard Linklater has made a step into adult-themed prestige territory. Last Flag Flying is a sorta sequel to Hal Ashby’s 1973 comedy-drama The Last Detail starring Jack Nicholson. Both films are based on author Darryl Ponicsan’s novels, with Last Flag Flying serving […]

The Lincoln Lawyer (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Mcconaissance. A term coined for the career comeback of Matthew McConaughey. A multi-year film run that resulted in the Academy Award winning performance for The Dallas Buyers’ Club. An Oscar win was something many thought was possible in the 1990s, but for most the 2000s, he was just seen as slumming it around in […]

Wakefield (Blu-ray Review)

When it comes to certain actors, there are some you’ll just watch no matter what the hell they do. Bryan Cranston is one of those few who are worth it just for their name involvement. I think post-Breaking Bad, many are now in agreement with that. Shout! Factory has managed to partner up with IFC […]

Why Him? (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Why Him? is ordinarily not the kind of film I would go see in the theaters.  Had it not been for two key factors I don’t think I would have gone.  First it had the very irresistible and hilarious trailers on its side.   That Red-band one was insane.  Although I went in hoping that all the funny […]

‘Power Rangers’ Is A Serious And Silly Reboot With Attitude (Movie Review)

Unsurprisingly, Power Rangers is the best film yet, as far as seeing the cinematic treatment applied to the popular kid’s action TV series. More surprising is how well this film manages to work in spite of itself. There are some terrible choices made in regards to the direction and delivery of plot. However, as a […]

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 […]

All the Way (Blu-ray Review)

All the Way exists in a strange space for films where it is packed on with talent and amazing performances, but was made for HBO to be shown on the premium channel instead of in theaters, where its message, cast, writing, and brilliance would have a greater chance to be celebrated by a larger audience.

There’s an interesting mix of indie fare this week that has everything from theme park furries to wild west gun-toting baddies.

Cranston’s Great Undercover In ‘The Infiltrator’ (Movie Review)

There’s something to be said for how compelling post-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston is. At 60-years old, the actor is about 20 years too old to be playing U.S. Customs agent Robert Mazur, the man who went undercover to infiltrate the money-laundering organization of drug lord Pablo Escobar. Still, his rugged face is one full of […]

‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Completes A Trilogy Of Awesomeness (Movie Review)

After a fairly lengthy wait, especially considering today’s handling of sequel schedules, Po and the Furious Five are back for more Kung Fu Panda fun. This third entry in DreamWorks Animation’s solid martial arts action-comedy franchise does not quite reach the great heights of the prior two installments, but that doesn’t mean this film is […]

Godzilla (Blu-ray Review)

It is great to see a movie like this treated with a level of respect.  While Godzilla can be boiled down to a giant monster causing a rampage in a city, the fact that the film (as well as its marketing) had a level of restraint in how to actually depict the sort of chaos […]

Godzilla’s Bark Is Worse Than Its Bite (Movie Review)

If you were asked where would Hollywood be without another reboot of the famous Japanese film monster, Godzilla, how would you answer?  I guess if someone asked me that, my initial response would be probably making another attempt at Freddy Krueger.  But since things didn’t fair all too well for the slasher’s last go around, […]
