Why Him? Spreads The F-ing Holiday Cheer (Movie 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 has the very irresistible and hilarious trailers on its side.   That Red-band one is insane.  Although I’m hoping all the funny parts […]

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. (And that’s just an average day in the work of diverse actor Bryan Cranston!)  We’re filling the Encapsulated Movie Reviews today with a trio that includes the comedy CHARACTERz, the drama The Infiltrator and […]

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 […]

He’s ‘Godzilla’, Hear Him Roar (Movie 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) has 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, […]

BREAKING BAD: THE COMPLETE SERIES arrives on Blu-ray and DVD 6/3

The who knocks returns.  One of my favorite television series of all time is coming home to Blu-ray in full this June.  This may sound confusing to those who are already aware of the elaborate box set placed inside a container shaped like one of the barrels seen so often throughout Breaking Bad, but if […]

Cold Comes the Night (Blu-ray Review)

Cold Comes the Night is a fairly straightforward thriller that is basically a showcase for Bryan Cranston’s Russian criminal character.  The film may lack much to really set it apart, but for what it is, the film is fine with moving at a quick pace to tell a fairly pulpy crime story, which happens to […]

THE NEW GODZILLA TRAILER HAS ARRIVED!

Godzilla just looks great.  I do not know how else to say it.  We now have a second trailer for the newest take on the legendary creature (which is being produced by Legendary) and it continues to look like a stunning achievement.  The cast is solid, the effects will obviously be amazing, and I am […]

‘Cold Comes The Night’ on Blu-ray March 4th!

They are calling this one of Bryan Cranston’s most disturbing performances.  Hmm.  That’s hard to top Mr. White in Breaking Bad, isn’t it?  But wait!  It’s not all about Bryan Cranston in this one, is it?  It also contains the beautiful Alice Eve from the latest Star Trek flick.  You remember that necessary scene she […]

WB Debuts New Trailers For Godzilla, Jupiter Ascending, and Edge of Tomorrow

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug is a big release for this time of year, with a likely gross ending up north of a billion dollars worldwide.  Given the nature of this release, it only makes sense for Warner Brothers to debut trailers for a few of their potential blockbusters for next year around the same […]

‘Argo’ F*&k Yourself This December With An Extended Edition

Y’all (my Texas accent is starting to protrude) start right here if you’re ever going to figure out where Batman got his mad detective skills from.  That’s right y’all.  Look no further than Argo, a cute little movie that won a few awards.  And best of all, Warner Bros. has your best interest at heart […]
