Cars 3 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Live By Night (Blu-ray Review)

In terms of his directorial output, Ben Affleck has had a perfect track record with me.  Gone Baby Gone was one hell of a debut for him and surprisingly his least talked about film in his director catalog (It shouldn’t be, its fantastic).  That film was based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, which is […]

The Town (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I didn’t use to be the biggest Ben Affleck fan around, but The Town was definitely one of the movies I could not wait to see after viewing its initial theatrical trailer.  Maybe it was those devilish looking bank robbing masks (click here to see what I am talking about) that reminded me so much of  Point Break‘s creepy presidential masks or maybe it […]

Dysfunctional Family Fun, Minus The Fun In ‘August: Osage County’ (Movie Review)

This matters very little in terms of my thoughts on the film, but I do not much care for the way this film is being marketed.  August: Osage County is a lot of things.  It is a well-acted drama, with some comedic moments.  It is based on an award-winning play by Tracy Letts.  It involves […]

The Town: Ultimate Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

The Town is a very fun bank heist/cops and robbers movie.  The film is Ben Affleck’s second time in the director’s chair, a follow up to the excellent Gone Baby Gone, and this film continues to prove that he is quite capable behind the camera.  The film is well made, wonderfully entertaining, and backed by […]

It is not often that I try to put so many hopes into one specific film, but I was dead set on wanting to love The Muppets.  Besides being pleased with who was involved in the production and the cast, I just get a great joy out of these characters every time I see them.  […]

Stop Into ‘The Town’ This Weekend

Although I’m certainly not biggest Ben Affleck fan around, The Town is definitely one of the movies I have been looking forward to all summer long since seeing its trailer.  Maybe it’s those devilish looking bank robbing masks that just remind me so much of  Point Break or maybe it’s the simple fact that this […]
