The Great Gatsby (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Before visiting The Great Gatsby theatrically, I strongly held the opinion that this was either going to be one of those films you’d love or you’d hate with absolutely no middle ground in the equation.  I know I found myself seriously conflicted in how I felt about it for months before I saw it.  The first trailer did […]

Inside Llewyn Davis (Criterion Collection)

So few directors can infuse the story of a struggling, down on his luck musician with so much unapologetic dark humor and persistent optimism. The Coen Brothers achieve just that with Inside Llewyn Davis. Oscar Isaac delivers an incredibly stirring performance, delivering deep soulful ballads that will leave the viewer entranced. Living a squanderous life of some […]

Far From The Madding Crowd (Blu-ray Review)

It was nice to revisit Far From The Madding Crowd, as it is one of my early favorites of the year. The film may seem like a traditional period drama, but it does well for the genre by working as a very watchable one. Thanks to strong performances, tight editing that appears to cut away […]

INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS arrives on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital This March

One of my favorite films of 2013 and another great film from Joel and Ethan Coen, Inside Llewyn Davis is a fantastic film about the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961.  That premise may not automatically interest everyone, but the joy of a Coen brothers film is the way they find ways to make brilliant films […]

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 […]

Hold Onto Your Potatoes…Laney Loves Her Time ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ (Movie Review)

Once again and without disappointment, the Coen brothers showcase their talent for delivering an impeccably honest journey of life affirmation as told by Inside Llewyn Davis. Just as important, and equally as impressive, is T Bone Burnett’s contribution to the soundtrack. The film travels the same avenue as O Brother, Where Art Thou in that […]

‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ There Is A Man, A Guitar, And A Cat (Movie Review)

At times it can be hard to elaborate on why regard can be put so high on certain films.  Without tip-toeing around it, I think Inside Llewyn Davis is an incredibly well-made, well-acted, fantastically strange film that receives the highest rating from me, because I do not know what could be made different to have […]

The Great Gatsby (Blu-ray Review)

Before visiting The Great Gatsby theatrically this spring, I strongly held the opinion that this was either going to be one of those films you’d love or you’d hate with uncompromising passion, no middle ground in the equation.  I know I found myself seriously conflicted in how I felt about it for months before I saw […]

Brian White’s Top 5 Films of 2013 So Far…And A Quick Look Ahead

I’ve never really wrote a piece like this before on the site so early in the year as its usually something I step aside and graciously hand the reigns over to our “Godfather” of theatrical movie reviews, Mr. Aaron Neuwirth, to cover.  However, most recently I’ve become very concerned after I compiled and examined the […]

The Great Production Values Highlight ‘The Great Gatsby’ (Movie Review)

A Baz Luhrmann-directed adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s acclaimed novel “The Great Gatsby” is either the summer blockbuster for everyone else or the obscure one that joins the fold of all the others.  Everyone that has gotten their fill of superheroes, disaster films, alien invasions, and other high concept ideas, now has the option of […]

Gerard’s Top 10 Bad Ass Blu-rays of 2012

It’s that not-so-dreaded time of the year where I unleash my Top 10 Blu-rays of 2012. This year I thought I’d go against the grain the best that I could and just limit myself on picking Blu-rays that actually made a statement in terms of video, audio, and special features, instead of films that were […]

Brian White’s Top 10 Most Righteous Blu-rays of 2012

While this was a huge year for long-awaited, big catalog title Blu-ray releases such as Finding Nemo, E.T., Jaws, Titanic, Chinatown and Indiana Jones, we also saw monstrous box sets take the High-Definition world by storm like Bond: 50, the Universal Monster collection, Hitchcock and more!  And yes, finally…we got all caught up with all […]

Drive (Blu-ray Review)

Every once in awhile, a film comes around that’s so hard to classify and/or nail down to a specific genre.  One can argue that 2011’s Drive just might be one of these movies.  Is it a mainstream picture?  Is it art house?  Is it an independent film?  Is it film noir?  Is it a thriller?  […]

No ‘Shame’ In Witnessing Bold Performances On Display

I would like to think that actor Michael Fassbender and director Steve McQueen have fun personalities when they are not on the set of their respective films.  Given the intense natures of characters that Fassbender has portrayed, particularly in regards to the two films he and McQueen have collaborated on thus far, it would be […]
