Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Six Studio Films Past, Present & Future

I’ve been away on a vacation these last couple of weeks so the indie factor has gotten a tad harder to keep up with (nobody does smaller films in volume like LA!), but I have seen some studio fare and wanted to share some cinematical views.  For this particular article I’m delving into big budget […]

Brian Takes A Vacation With Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets (Movie Review)

Make no mistake about it two of my most treasured 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray releases, The Fifth Element and Lucy, are Luc Besson movies.  Therefore, it should come as no surprise when I tell  how excited I am to finally have seen his newest body of work, the sci-fiction feature Valerian And The City Of […]

‘Valerian’ Packs An Incredible World Into One Big, Visual Rollercoaster (Movie Review)

About halfway through writer/director Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, my main thought was how I just wanted more of this. The film had not even concluded, but I had already bought so much into this sci-fi/fantasy world that I was ready to see further adventures of Valerian and Laureline. Fortunately, […]

A Cure For Wellness (Blu-ray Review)

As proven this past February, A Cure for Wellness has few tricks up its sleeves that audiences have not seen before. I believe director Gore Verbinski knew this going in but still wanted to go all in. Fitting in the same league as gorgeously designed, but narratively challenged films such as Shutter Island and Crimson […]

The ‘Cure For Wellness’ Is A Big-Budget Oddity (Movie Review)

I would like to propose something.  Many will argue how A Cure for Wellness has few tricks up its sleeves that audiences have not seen before. What if director Gore Verbinski knows that as well? Fitting in the same league as gorgeously designed, but narratively challenged films such as Shutter Island and Crimson Peak, A […]

Life After Beth (Blu-ray Review)

Life After Beth was a zombie romantic comedy in competition this past year at the Sundance Film Festival.  The film was later release in a limited capacity in theaters in the United States back on August 15 (No, it did not topple the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Guardians Of The Galaxy).  It stars up […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Blu-ray Review)

When I moved to Austin, TX over a year ago from Cleveland, OH I expected my change of scenery to be quite stimulating and invigorating, but you all know that whole grass is always greener on the other side thing, right?  While the skies may not be grey all the time like in Cleveland, I […]

Academy Award® winners Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, 2010) and Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line, 2005) lead an all-star cast in this gripping, heart-wrenching true story that shocked the nation. May 5, 1993. West Memphis, Arkansas. Three young boys playing in the nearby woods never come home for dinner. In the rush to find and […]

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Forever (Movie Review)

I am a Batman fan. People who know me well enough are pretty clear on that. With that said, while Batman and the characters in his universe provide more for me to think about, I also grew up reading and watching Spider-Man (and occasionally his amazing friends). I may find something more inherently interesting in […]

Metallica: Through The Never (DVD Review)

The ‘tallica boys are back and they’re bringing gigantic props! Filmmaker Nimrod Antal (Predators, Vacancy, Kontroll) has teamed up with the heavy metal rock act to bring a concert-feature film experience that has never quite happened like this before. The budget is huge, the theatrics are on overload, and Metallica does what they do like […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Enemies Unite Sizzle

Here’s the last trailer I plan on posting for now.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had a Super Bowl spot, but rather than post that, I went for the 4-minute extended trailer, which basically highlights that this big summer sequel is going to be all about Oscorp throwing everything they’ve got at Peter Parker.  Will it […]

Boroughs – unfolds when Sony Pictures Classics’ KILL YOUR DARLINGS […]

Rhinos, Goblins, and Electro, oh my!  Certainly plenty of threats coming Spider-Man’s way in the upcoming sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  Arriving May 2, 2014, we now have a trailer to behold, which certainly emphasizes the kinds of things you see in trailers to sequels in big franchises.  I had previously written a post regarding […]

Metallica Through The Never Thrashes Onto Blu-ray In January

Here’s one of those titles where I was just so busy in life at the time that I was regrettably not able to check out theatrically despite wanting to over the many positive reviews out there.  I do pride myself in the fact that I own the soundtrack, which in my opinion is pretty killer […]

‘Metallica’ Attempts A Live-Action Metalocalypse (Movie Review)

First thing first, while this heavy metal concert film shares its title with the name of one of Metallica’s albums, the actual song, “Through the Never” does not appear in this film.  It does not matter much, because that is not the band’s best song and film features an awesome greatest hits collection for any […]

Comic-Con 2013: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

This is a big jump to way towards the end of Friday’s activities in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con this year, but I figure Spider-man is popular enough to have more people curious about what went on here than other panels I was able to witness. Here is the official description of what […]
