‘First Man’ Is An Emotionally Satisfying Rocket Ride (Movie Review)

If I didn’t know any better, I’d think this was a movie about the first “caveman” given its title.  I know that’s a complete stretch, but for some reason First Man came as a surprise to me.  I knew nothing about it, but given the success and my adoration of 2016’s Hidden Figures I was instantly […]

Want a little five-star foreign film avant-garde experience for the couch crowd with added controversial kick – then welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!  Can there actually be a film that captures colors and visuals that scream stunning, but is also immersed in some of the most explicit, disgusting, vile and downright jaw-drop shocking moments ever […]

Why I Give Justice League 2 F’s! (Movie Review)

I didn’t think this glorious day would ever come, but alas it has.  Heaven on Earth is here.  That could only mean ONE thing for sure in life.  The Justice League motion picture has finally arrived on the big screen!  As far as 2017 feature films go I have thought of nothing else except Justice […]

‘Justice League’ Keeps The World And Itself Safe (Movie Review)

In a different part of the multiverse, I’m sure there’s a time where a Justice League movie would be the most anticipated movie event of the year. Not having dealt with bad reviews for previous films, internet backlash, and furious debates among comic book fans, this alternate timeline would see director Zack Snyder and co-writer […]

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (Blu-ray Review)

Reviewing The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby on Blu-ray makes for a somewhat difficult situation, because there are two versions of this film (thankfully both available on this release).  The first has something of a subtitle known as “Them”.  This version takes the story of a married couple that separates and follows both of their lives […]

I am not only excited for this release, but for the fact that it includes both versions of the film.  Check it:  Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company are proud to announce the home entertainment release of Ned Benson’s emotionally thrilling film, THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY.  Audiences can own this inspired example of […]

‘Frozen’ Is Solid Work From Disney (Movie Review)

I will get this out of the way:  I really liked the fact that Frozen was an animated Disney film that did not rely on the death of a parent as a major plot point and that it did not end with a big wedding.  Not all Disney films have this, but Frozen stuck out […]

Strap On Your Powdered Wig And Get Ready For ‘Closed Circuit’ (Movie Review)

I have to wonder sometimes how much time and consideration is put into the little details, before sending off the finished product and then being tackled by criticisms.  Closed Circuit has plenty going for it at first glance.  The film features a top notch cast, who are all putting forth reasonably good work as the […]

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (Blu-ray Review)

If at first you don’t succeed try again, right? Wait a minute, the first Ghost Rider film grossed almost 230 million dollars worldwide, what do you mean try again? It was a box-office success even though it was garbage. Well, there are forces out there that deemed there be a sequel to the film, or […]

‘John Carter’ – Get Your Ass To Mars

Well I had fun with this space jam.  It must be tough for guys like James Cameron, George Lucas, or in this case – director Andrew Stanton, who work years on end to deliver a passion project of theirs, but have so much negative thought put into whether it will succeed or not based on […]

John Carter 3D (Movie Review)

From Academy Award–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes John Carter – a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). John Carter is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of […]

‘Ghost Rider’ Blazes Through A Frenetic Sequel

Let’s start off with an obscure reference – The tagline for the mid-90s comic book film, The Phantom was “Slam Evil”.  In Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Johnny Blaze, aka The Rider, doesn’t just slam evil, he literally sucks it in, chews on it, spits it out, then gives you the finger, as he drives […]

Harry Potter And ‘The Woman In Black’

I kid around in my title, but really, when you are the lead in one of the most popular film franchises of all time and now star in a completely different film, it is hard not to call attention to this fact.  Daniel Radcliffe stars in an old fashioned horror film (actually produced by Hammer […]

Methodical Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Thrills

Along with having one of my favorite titles to say out loud of the year (the other being Martha Marcy May Marlene), Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy also boasts one of the best ensemble casts of the year.  It is very delightful to report that the cast is certainly not wasted either, as everyone in this […]

‘The Debt’ Is A Decent, Late Summer Distraction

After a year long delay, The Debt has now arrived in theaters.  While at one time thought to be a possible Oscar contender, it now seems that it has been dumped into the end of summer release period.  While this is not something that necessarily matters in relation to my thoughts on the film, the […]
