Comic-Con 2017: Charlize Theron & ‘Atomic Blonde’ (Movie Review)

I guess for the past couple of years now Entertainment Weekly has put on a Women Who Kick-Ass Panel at Comic-Con International.  This year’s panel featured a single woman, Charlize Theron, showcasing her most recent work Atomic Blonde, which dropped in theaters this week finally and her involvement in Fate of the Furious and one of […]

‘Atomic Blonde’ Is A Cool Killer With Too Much Filler (Movie Review)

Here’s an action film that I couldn’t help but be underwhelmed by, given its potential. Atomic Blonde features Charlize Theron as a top-level spy in an action movie from David Leitch, co-director of John Wick. The film oozes with style (neon glow and an 80s new wave soundtrack) and features an array of solid actors […]

The Fate of the Furious (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

When I first sat down to work on this movie review prior to seeing the actual movie itself this spring I thought to myself what a wonderful world.  LOL.  I am kidding.  I pondered about what they can do in this outing that hasn’t been done in the previous seven ones.  I must admit I was a […]

No ‘F8te’ But What We Make ‘Furious’ (Movie Review)

Franchise evolution is what keeps gas in the tank for a blockbuster film series. Superhero movies can ideally rely on a diverse set of characters that lend themselves to other subgenres, while James Bond generally works with what’s most popular in action cinema. Fast & Furious, a franchise I’ve unabashedly enjoyed and stuck by during the […]

The Fate of the Furious IS SERIOUS F-U-N! (Movie Review)

As I sit down to work on this movie review prior to seeing the actual movie itself I think to myself what a wonderful world.  LOL.  I am kidding.  I ponder about what they can do in this outing that hasn’t been done in the previous seven ones.  While watching the trailers for The Fate […]

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 […]

Mad Max Fury Road BLACK & CHROME Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Here’s a true fact for you.  Never in a million, zillion years would I ever have believed that I could experience unhappiness while watching my favorite film of 2015, Mad Max Fury Road.  Before we go there I want to take a step back.  Last year the rumor was that the Blu-ray release of Mad Max […]

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 […]
