Unforgiven (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Back in my old quality control days for Blu-ray and DVD, it also included the short lived HD-DVD format. Toshiba’s failed high definition discs did beat Blu-ray to market. In the testing world, I’ve mentioned the first two titles were Goodfellas and Million Dollar Baby. Well, the third was Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven. This was the […]

Sully (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Who didn’t know the story of Captain Chesley Sullenberger?  His courageous landing on the Hudson River was one of the biggest stories when the year flipped over to 2009.  Its crazy to think that its going to be eight years ago next month.  Its almost like its fresh on the brain.  As with all things […]

‘Sully’ Is A Non-Essential Look At Heroism (Movie Review)

It can be tough to imagine why Sully is a film that needs to be seen. Working as a dramatization of an event that took place not too long ago, it would appear as if audiences already have a good handle on what took place with the “Miracle on the Hudson”. However, it appears director […]

American Sniper saw a limited release theatrically last year on Christmas Day.  So if you are in the know with my usual rants, then you have already guessed it and hit the nail on the head.  It wasn’t released or screened anywhere near me last Christmas, hence why I did not see this masterpiece until January […]

Eastwood Aims High With ‘American Sniper’ (Movie Review)

So director Clint Eastwood decided to pull a Spielberg and be a double threat in 2014, but while Jersey Boys and American Sniper are no Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List (and perhaps not even a Lost World and Amistad), the latter film is certainly his best effort in some time.  That may not be saying […]

Jersey Boys (Blu-ray Review)

Jersey Boys has been an uber popular music for the last many years.  It travels city to city and wows and pleases audiences across the United States.  The film is a jukebox musical, meaning it features already established pop songs.  But, that’s because its telling the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons so […]

‘Jersey Boys’ Try To Walk Like Men On The Big Screen (Movie Review)

I suppose it comes to no surprise that the soundtrack to Jersey Boys, the Tony Award-winning-jukebox musical-turned movie, is a good one.  Bringing on many involved with the original show led to some solid vocal performances that really let the scenes featuring The Four Seasons and others show off their singing abilities.  I only wish […]

Grumpy Old Clint Finds ‘Trouble With The Curve’

So Clint Eastwood has returned to the big screen for a movie that does not require a whole lot of effort from him.  Trouble with the Curve is a fairly slight film about a number of old American chestnuts, such as baseball, getting older, trusting your instincts, and the father-daughter relationship.  It is not necessarily […]
