Kick-Ass (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

To say that I was not looking forward to the original April 16th theatrical release date of Kick-Ass would be like saying that I would rather watch a SD DVD of my favorite film over its superior HD counterpart.  It’s just not going to happen.  My obsession with this film happened way back on the […]

Trolls (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Ahhh, the treasure trolls.  They’ve been around forever.  Everyone grew up with one, knows what they are, sold a lot of items based on different colors of hair.  Popular damn things.  Are they still?  Not sure.  However, wow, it has taken a REALLY long time for them to get a movie off the ground, right?

‘Trolls’ Sparkles And Glitters Its Way Through A Stock Animated Adventure (Movie Review)

Sometimes it is necessary to expect a level entertainment that simply does not work for you. Trolls is essentially fine in providing an assortment of colors and music to keep its intended audience (younglings) thrilled for a majority of the screentime. There is a message at its core, the voice actors all seem game, the […]

Fly High And Soar Through The Heavens With ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ (Movie Review)

While I tend to be a very impatient fellow who’s always wanting something else as fast as it can be handed to me, there are some things worth the wait.  There are such things as the perfect film.  Lightning can surely strike the same place twice.  And for those reasons and so many more, that’s […]

Hidy Ho! ‘Neighbors’ (Movie Review)

In lesser hands, Neighbors could have been an easily forgettable mess of a film, with talented comedic performers simply going through the motions of a ‘versus’-type comedy.  The thing that separates a film like this from whatever junk a company like Happy Madison Productions tends to put out in theaters these days is the attempt […]

Kick-Ass 2 Brings Out The Superhero In All Of Us (Movie Review)

The day is finally upon us.  A day that feels like it took forever to come.  Honestly, I was unsure if this day would ever happen, but the sequel to 2010’s Kick-Ass is finally here!!!  And it’s aptly named…Kick-Ass 2.  Well, let’s be honest.  They could have been a little more creative with that title, […]

‘Kick-Ass 2’ Not Quite As Hard Hitting (Movie Review)

Maybe one of the more unlikely comic properties to get a sequel, Kick-Ass was produced almost completely as an independent film, only to have its distribution rights bought and successfully turned into a big screen event.  Unfortunately, while the Comic Con and geek crowd showed up for Kick-Ass, the film did not turn into the […]

Get On That ‘To Do List’ (Movie Review)

I should start by saying I liked this movie.  The To Do List is a fun summer comedy that mixes absurd raunchiness and some sincere qualities in terms of what the journey means to the lead character, when all is said and done.  It also happens to be another coming-of-age film, which will be in […]

Comic-Con 2013: Universal Releases New Red-Band Trailers For Riddick And Kick Ass 2

Hey there!  You will have to bare with me, as there are plenty of exciting things going on at this year’s San Diego Comic Con and I only have so much time to cover certain aspects of it.  This post is simple:  I have two new R-rated trailers for upcoming films Riddick and Kick Ass […]

My Shocking ‘This Is The End’ Didn’t Completely Suck Movie Review

This is the End is an apocalyptic comedy film where James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson all portray fictional characters of themselves as they are forced to face the true meaning of friendship and redemption as the world ends around them.  Does that sound stupid to you or […]

‘ParaNorman’ Raises the Dead And Puts Them To Sleep (Movie Review)

ParaNorman was first introduced to me by a former co-worker whose family’s business (Peak Solutions LLC) just so happened to be directly involved in the production of this 3D stop-motion animated adventure film. How you say? Well they supplied/sold the many 3D rendering color printers the studio/production team used to create thousands of models that […]

‘ParaNorman’ Sees Dead People And The Film Delivers A Lively, Good Time

First and foremost, I should say that I really dug ParaNorman.  The film has quietly stood as one of my most anticipated films of the year, as it fell into the realm of having so many different things that called out to wanting me to like it, and it completely delivered.  A stop-motion animated zombie […]

Go Forth And Have The ‘Fright Night’ Of Your Life

I am happy when my optimism is met with pleasing results.  The idea of remaking the 1985 vampire horror/comedy Fright Night seemed like fairly solid idea in my eyes.  There’s a structure to that story that could easily serve as a template for a modern update.  I can’t say that I was initially sold on […]

‘Fright Night’ Scares Up Frights

Let me start out by saying that films are out of my expertise, I am an in your face gamer.  However, I was fortunate enough to attend an advance screening of the film in 3-D.  I would much rather see a film the regular way not only do I think 3-D is stupid but it’s […]

SDCC 2011: DreamWorks: Fright Night

It is funny how two Hall H panels in a row featured films that have vampires in the lead roles, during a sunny Friday afternoon at San Diego Comic Con.  Following the Screen Gems panel that featured Attack the Block and Underworld Awakening, next up was DreamWorks presentation of Fright Night, a remake of the […]

Kick-Ass Lives Up To Its Name

…for the most part, but we’ll get to that in a moment.  Spawned originally from writer Mark Millar and Marvel artist John Romita Jr., Kick-Ass made its presence known to the mainstream as a comic book in February of 2008.  Going under the label of Icon Comics, Kick-Ass secured a cult-following to a loyal fanbase, […]
