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, […]

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Is Wonderfully…AWFUL! (Movie Review)

If I was completely ignorant and judged Jupiter Ascending by its cover, I’d be staying the hell away from it even though I love science fiction.  The trailers for the movie looked absolutely horrible.  When they pulled it from its former release schedule last year I have to be honest with y’all, I was hoping […]

The Book Of Life (Blu-ray Review)

The Nightmare Before Christmas has become a widely loved kids film, when it comes to celebrating Halloween.  If things go the way they should, The Book of Life is in a nice position to become the film that represents Dia de los Muertos for kids, let alone brings it further into mainstream prominence.  Director Jorge […]

‘Foxcatcher’ Catches The Blu-ray Fever This March

Foxcatcher is yet another film I so missed out on as it sadly didn’t come to a theater near me last year.  However, that’s all about to change very soon!  The Winner of 2014’s Cannes Film Festival for Best Director & Special Distinction Award at 2015’s Film Independent Spirit Awards will be coming home to the Blu-ray format on […]

Bring Home the Most Breathtaking Animation Family Adventure when “The Book of Life” Arrives on Blu-ray This January

The Book of Life was a wonderfully different animated adventure produced by Guillermo del Toro and written and directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez.  The film was a celebration of the day of the dead through a neat fantasy tale involving two friends voiced by Channing Tatum and Diego Luna, vying for the affections of their best […]

‘Foxcatcher’ Has Strong Performances, But A Loose Grasp (Movie Review)

It is funny when you have next to no reaction to a film, despite easily acknowledging so many great things about it.  Foxcatcher is incredibly well acted, effectively directed in a chilling sort of manner as a sort of powder keg of tension, and likely worthy of even more praise, when one considers the level […]

22 Jump Street (Blu-ray Review)

It should be no surprise to anyone that the dynamic duo, hilarious tag team of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are back  reprising their respective roles from 2012 in the appropriately titled 22 Jump Street (I’ll expand upon that more down below).  I last talked about 21 Jump Street in my Blu-ray review over here in 2012 and I’m happy to […]

22 Jump Street Addresses The Blu-ray Format November 18th

22 Jump Street sees Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum back in action in Columbia Pictures’/Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ outrageously explosive comedy, debuting on Digital HD on Oct. 28th, and on Blu-ray and DVD Nov. 18th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.  After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) when […]

Similar, But Across The Road We Have ‘22 Jump Street’ (Movie Review)

The boys are back, but not up to a whole lot that is new.  Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum made good the first time around, as their unlikely pairing made for an even more unlikely success with their comedic take on the 80s undercover cop series, 21 Jump Street.  Now we have the sequel, fittingly […]

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 […]

White House Down Raises The Roof On Blu-ray This November

It was unfortunate that White House Down did not connect with a bigger audience this past summer.  While by no means perfect, it was easily everything one could ask for in a good time at the movies, during the summer movie season.  It is filled with action, has a great cast, and a lot of […]

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Blu-ray Review)

“They” say that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is coined the savior of franchises as of late with his propelling inclusion in the almighty, righteous Fast Five and now the sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, aptly titled G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  Now I may be in the minority here, but I don’t feel […]

Roland Emmerich Brings The ‘White House Down’ (Movie Review)

So far we have had three ‘Die Hard’ movies and I have been entertained by two of them; neither of which starred Bruce Willis.  White House Down is the second film this year, following Olympus Has Fallen, to feature the White House being held hostage by terrorists.  While the films are somewhat different in what […]

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Explodes onto Blu-ray – Officially This July!

I was so against this movie when I heard there was not going to be any sign of the Baroness or Scarlett.  They were the best parts of the first film, right?  Well reluctantly I dragged my sorry butt to the theater months ago on a rainy Sunday afternoon and well…I actually really liked what […]

‘G.I. Joe’ 2: Cobra Strikes Back! (Movie Review)

2009 saw the release of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.  While that film was a financial success and has its fans, it did not quite set the world on fire in the same way that Transformers, the other Hasbro toy-based movie franchise did.  The consensus seems to be that it was too campy for […]
