Sausage Party (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Sausage Party, which sort of made its premiere at SXSW this year, is one film I purposely missed out on theatrically this year.  I know I’m not alone in my way of thinking.  The overall consensus is very split on this one too.  Either people seem to love it or others outright hate it like […]

Morris From America (Blu-ray Review)

It’s great to hear a lot of positive things about a small film you have some interest in and find that it delivers. Morris from America is the kind of film that would have had to be sought out to find it in theaters this past summer, despite its success at the Sundance Film Festival.  […]

‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2’ Was Not A Relaxing Second Dip (Movie Review)

In 2010, I was excited to see a film that sold me on Craig Robinson looking into the camera and spouting the words “Hot Tub Time Machine.”  Given that the film had such a ludicrous title to begin with, the cast going the extra mile to make something so silly it came back to being […]

Get On Up (Blu-ray Review)

Given the strength of the lead performance and some other aspects, at this point, I am pretty fine with saying Get On Up was one of the more underrated films from 2014.  I am a big fan of James Brown and was happy to go in to this film pretty open-minded (as I generally do).  […]

Get On Up Is Out Of Sight (Movie Review)

There is a level of familiarity to musician biopics at this point that tends to keep me from becoming too excited about the prospect of a new one.  With varying degrees of separation, they mostly tend to follow a formula, much like any film that hits similar beats as its predecessors within the same sub-genres […]

THIS IS THE END Comes to Blu-ray This October

On October 1st, everyone will be able to pick up a copy of one of the funniest films of the year.  This Is The End is a comedy that I was very much looking forward to and it really delivered (Review HERE).  The film pits James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, […]

‘This Is The End’, Though The Laughter Doesn’t Stop (Movie Review)

The apocalypse has been quite a popular topic for film in recent years.  It has also been handled in various forms; from disaster drama (2012, Knowing), to the various zombie films (the upcoming World War Z), to romantic dramas (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, a film I will continue to go […]

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 […]

ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH CRASH LANDS ON BLU-RAY THIS JUNE

On June 4th Escape from Planet Earth makes its Blu-ray debut.  I did not catch this film in theaters and I do not believe I have actually seen a recent animated film in theaters so far this year. It is still early, of course, with Monster’s University and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 […]

WonderCon 2013: This Is The End

Recently, we have seen films like 2012, Melancholia, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and even Children of Men, to an extent, depict what it would be like to see the world come to an end.  Just to round things out, I guess, we now have the version of that story in […]

Eastbound and Down: The Complete Third Season (Blu-ray Review)

After fleeing his North Carolina hometown, washed-up major-league pitcher Kenny Powers spent a soul-searching season in Mexico as “La Flama Blanca” – and ended up returning to the States a changed man.  Powers, whose boorish behavior and fading fastball led to a spectacular career flame-out now finds himself back on the mound in the USA.

Hot Tub Time Machine (Blu-ray Review)

I think most people have at some point wondered “what if” whether it’s about a girl or boy in your past or a decision you made long ago that still keeps you awake at night on occasion.  I think if everyone (myself included) were given the opportunity to find out how things could have been […]

Hot Tub Time Machine: The Music Video!

This press release came across my desk last Friday.  It was just too funny to ignore.  To coincide with the release of Hot Tub Time Machine on Blu-ray June 29th, Fox wants you to see the brand new and insanely funny content starring Rob Cordry, Craig Robinson, John Cusack and Clark Duke.  This movie looks hilarious […]

Soak in Blu-ray’s Hot Tub Time Machine

Here’s a title I owe it to myself to see.  I have heard so many good things about it.  Gregg Senko gave an excellent review of it here and I have heard from many people how it was just as funny as last year’s The Hangover  (although I don’t see how that could be possible), […]

Hot Tub Time Machine An Unexpected Blast

There hasn’t been much promotion for John Cusack’s latest work, Hot Tub Time Machine.  If you are expecting an incredibly ludicrous premise for this film based on that title, then your expectations will be met.  The story focuses on four guys; Adam (John Cusack), Nick (Craig Robinson), Lou (Rob Corddry), and Adam’s nephew, Jacob (Clark […]
