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 […]

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (Blu-ray Review)

I’ve always been a pretty solid fan of the Jack Ryan franchise.  The first one I saw was Clear And Present Danger, where some friends and I just randomly went to a movie on an afternoon and saw it.  It was like my first super adult type movie I think I saw in the theater […]

‘Jack Ryan’: Plain Recruit (Movie Review)

Does the world need another Jack Ryan?  The character, created by writer Tom Clancy, has never quite taken off, despite their now being five films that feature him.  The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger are solid spy thrillers/procedurals, but are not 90s films that many seem to single out […]

Gregg’s Top 10 Films of 2013

What an interesting year we had as it presented us with plenty of ammo at both ends of the quality spectrum. We had the horridness known as Machete Kills, as well as the brilliance of films such as J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel. It was also another year of super heroes. Some arrived from the pages […]
