‘Hell Or High Water’ Serves Cinematic Justice (Movie Review)

The neo-western has been an interesting genre to keep an eye on. Many of these films take the staples of classic westerns, but are heavily informed by so much that has come before. Brilliant films such as No Country For Old Men or (a personal favorite) The Way of the Gun even get away with […]

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Crashes In Third Place (Movie Review)

Star Trek Beyond promises us one thing going in, a departure from J. J. Abrams’ direction.  It of course delivers more, but my main concern was what kind of adventure are we in store for?  For too long now I hear complaints from longtime Trekkies upset over the direction of the first two films.  Most […]

SDCC 2016 – “Hope and Potential for Mankind:” Wonder Woman Movie Panel

Today, during the Warner Bros. panel in H Hall, trailers and upcoming sneak peeks submerged audiences in the DC Comic Universe. From Suicide Squad to Justice League, the audience was mesmerized and dazzled by the good (and bad) guys who fight evil. However one DC superhero definitely stood out from the rest,  none other than […]

It’s A Great Time to Be Alive Part 2: Wonder Woman Trailer at Comic-Con!

While I’m holding up the home front here in Austin, TX while my peers are living it up at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 today in Hall H, videos like this that Warner Bros. just released online make it a good time to be alive.  After all, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is my favorite […]

Teamwork & Visuals Push ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Just Another Day In Space (Movie Review)

This new series of Star Trek films should ideally have been my gateway into getting a better feel for the series. The J.J. Abrams films were not without merit, but even with a changing of hands to director Justin Lin, I seem to still be largely unmoved by what this franchise has to offer. The […]

Star Trek Into Darkness (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I will kind of start this review by echoing what I said over here in my first 4K UHD review of Star Trek.  It was two months ago when Paramount Home Media Distribution announced that director J.J. Abrams’ global blockbusters Star Trek and the reason why we are all here, Star Trek Into Darkness, would […]

‘The Finest Hours’ Is All Predictable Heroics (Movie Review)

Watching The Finest Hours made me think of how commendable it was to see Disney produce a historical disaster drama about a daring Coast Guard rescue. It is just too bad that all the visual effects used to convey a sense of scale were not enough to ever make the stakes feel that high. While […]

Horrible Bosses 2 (Blu-ray Review)

We have all had our share of “horrible bosses” haven’t we?  Maybe we don’t care to admit it, but I believe I’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t have at least own horrible boss story.  Let’s look at example from a chapter in my own life.  In my current position and prior place of […]

Head ‘Into The Woods’ For An Entertaining Diversion (Movie Review)

Given how much they talked/sang about it, I was glad that everyone definitely went into the woods.  Two things:  I was not at all hip to knowing anything about the original Into the Woods stage musical before this film was announced and I enjoy the musical style of Stephen Sondheim.  With that in mind, I […]

Horrible Bosses 2 And The Mild Returns (Movie Review)

There is a point in Horrible Bosses 2 where a character is asked what took place and his response is that he is unsure, because the three lead characters were yammering too much for him to be certain.  Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis have great chemistry, no doubt about it.  Their banter, which […]
