Atomic Blonde (SXSW Review)

Where David Leitch’s first film, John Wick seemed to come out of nowhere, delight the senses, and spend time blending its style and substance into a heart-filled tale of revenge and bulletplay that continuously wows, his second film Atomic Blonde is highly anticipated, remains cool and distant, and heavily favors style to compensate for a […]

Top 10 Films Of 2016: A Brandon Peters Story

As always when I do these “Best” lists, I ask two things of you, the reader.  Take the words best or top and replace it with “favorite”.  And importantly, number or ranking doesn’t matter, what is included does.  2016 was an interesting year for me, in that I feel a hair underqualified, but still, this […]

Experience The Craft And Adventure In ‘Kubo And The Two Strings’ (Movie Review)

Laika is currently the studio I have the utmost respect for.

There latest film, Kubo and the Two Strings, is another amazing accomplishment. It […]

The Huntsman: Winter’s War (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Who out there was a fan of Snow White and the Huntsman?  I have to admit, I initially was going into the theatrical screening.  It looked dark and broody and I was looking forward to seeing Charlize Theron as the evil queen of the famous fairy tale “Snow White.”  However, I just don’t know.  In […]

‘The Huntsman’ Tells The Fantasy Tale You Never Wanted (Movie Review)

The worst fears have been realized, as The Huntsman: Winter’s War is The Return of Jafar of big studio fairy tale movies. Armed with a $115 million budget, this attempt at a spin-off/prequel/sequel fails miserably in its attempt to have any more worth than a direct-to-video sequel that no one expects much from. It would […]

Mad Max Fury Road (Blu-ray Review)

I have to be honest with y’all.  I’ve been anxiously waiting for this day to come ever since I first saw Mad Max Fury Road this past May.  I’ve seen it not once, not twice, not even three times, but five triumphant times in the theater with one of them being a gigantic IMAX screen […]

‘A Million Ways’ To Seem Like A Western…Not Enough To Be Hilarious (Movie Review)

The surprising thing about Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West is how devoted to the genre it actually is. While I can only think of so many western comedies offhand, there are plenty of ways to turn the genre on its head and have a lot of fun with it. MacFarlane […]

This April Do ‘That Thing You Do’ On Blu

Well it’s about time!  As much as I like getting to see big blockbusters on Blu-ray for their awesome sound and video quality, and as much as I like to see old classics get their restored treatment on Blu-ray, there are still a good number of more modern films that have yet to make their […]

Gerard’s Worst Films of 2012

This worst-of list will not be as long as my other Top 10 lists due to the fact that some films that were downright unwatchable weren’t even watched all the way through. I decided not to subject myself to them, so some of these selections will probably just get “honorable worst-of” mentions instead, or a […]

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 […]
