The Year of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” Continues In Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Movie Review)

First there was Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass in 2010 and then there was Kingsman: The Secret Service (Aaron Neuwirth’s review of it all here and mine) in 2014.  Needless to say I’m a big fan of both.   Now we have a September 22nd sequel titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  This is one film I can’t say […]

Kingsman Royale (Movie Review)

2015’s Kingsman: The Secret Service was a sleeper hit that reveled in being a Roger Moore-era Bond flick wrapped in modern sensibilities and kinetic, R-rated violence. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is less successful because it feels more like an attempt to hold onto what emotional strengths worked the first time around. Perhaps if this movie […]

Lots To Like In ‘Logan Lucky’ (Movie Review)

There was honestly never much of a chance I wasn’t going to enjoy another ensemble heist comedy from director Steven Soderbergh. Logan Lucky is the hillbilly cousin of Soderbergh’s Ocean film series (reminder: Ocean’s 12 is underrated), and it’s just as fun. And of course, only Soderbergh, who retired due to resentment towards the Hollywood […]

SDCC 2017: Kingsman The Golden Circle

An Archer-Kingsman crossover was something that never really crossed my mind, but it makes perfect sense, especially after seeing it in action. The opening clip began with Eggsy running on rooftops and leaping from building to building, only it was in animated form. Very similar to the style of Archer. Eggsy finally arrives at Kingsman, but […]

The LEGO Batman Movie (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Two years ago, one of the dumber, bad ideas came to fruition: The LEGO Movie. Sure, really young kids would go and enjoy, yeah. But, they can deserve better. Low and behold, it was BETTER and one of the best films of the year and animated films of the last ten years. Everything was awesome! […]

Jupiter Ascending (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Jupiter Ascending, quite the despised film that I guess won’t go away thanks to a new home video format.  My average film score on the Blu-ray and kind thoughts on the merits it did bring to the table were met with plenty of disdain when I posted the review and shared it to social media.  The […]

Hail, Caesar! (Blu-ray Review)

While they are among the most acclaimed modern filmmakers of today, one of the criticisms leveled at Joel and Ethan Coen is how mean they are to their characters. There may be truth in that, but Hail, Caesar! certainly says a lot about their love for the movies. Set in the 1950s, the Golden Age […]

JUPITER ASCENDING Ascends To Blu-ray June 2nd!

Jupiter Ascending is likely the most polarizing film of 2015’s first quarter.  Nobody went to see it and a lot of those that did, didn’t really care for it.  Personally, as a fan of the Wachowskis, it was one I was anticipating regardless of whether or not it was delayed.  Was it a good or […]

Foxcatcher (Blu-ray Review)

Make no mistake about it.  I wanted to see Foxcatcher for one main reason.  Never mind all the Academy Awards nominations it got.  We’ll talk about those in a minute.  I wanted to see it because for the first time ever that man I saw in the film’s trailer was not Steve Carell, but someone […]

I Wish ‘Jupiter’ Was More Than Just A Planet Full Of Promise (Movie Review)

After months of speculation and curiosity, countered by delays and implied bad buzz, things have unfortunately not tipped in favor of Jupiter Ascending, the new, original sci-fi/fantasy film from the Wachowskis.  I really wanted to like this movie and all of the right elements are certainly there, given the fairly game cast, the production design, […]
