Since last week saw such few releases, I held onto the reviews plus added some already out selections to make this weeks crop truly a hodgepodge movie assortment.  Not to mention that there are a massive nine films covered – seven indie titles and two big budget studio flicks.  (I see the big titles too, […]

‘Alien: Covenant’ Plays By Fassbender’s Rules (Movie Review)

Six years ago I fell in love with the Alien franchise when I was forced to tackle the Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set in my complete review of it all here.  I had never seen the third or fourth flicks before then.  Two years later I became of a bonafide disciple of Ridley Scott’s franchise […]

‘Alien: Covenant’ Presents A New Ship But A Familiar Story (Movie Review)

Director Ridley Scott is 79-years old and excited to keep making Alien movies. He first jumped back into the universe he helped create with 2012’s Prometheus. While I was among those who embraced the mix of intriguing (and sometimes puzzling) ideas and technical wizardry, the film certainly received mixed reactions overall. Prequels always tend to […]

Underworld (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Underworld is one of those films that I’ll never forget where in life I was when I saw it.  I’ll spare you the details, but I  remember that evening vividly as it was a good one.  It also came out at just the right time when the vampire craze was just ramping up and ironically was […]

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 […]

‘The Angry Birds Movie’ Wastes More Of Your Time Than The Game (Movie Review)

It was about as frustrating to watch The Angry Birds Movie as it is to play the game and merely get one out of three stars on a given level. As harmless as a movie like this is, I am not all about giving something colorful and goofy a pass, simply because the young kids […]

SDCC 2015: Open Road Panel HALL H

Hall H began with a bang with Bill Murray sauntering down the middle aisle to the tune of “Smoke on the Water.” Of course he received a standing ovation, not only because he’s Bill Murray, but also because it was his first Comic-Con appearance. Joined by “Rock the Kasbah” screenwriter Mitch Glazer, they were comfortable, […]

Eastbound & Down: The Complete Fourth & Final Season (Blu-ray Review)

I have been a huge fan of HBO’s comedy series Eastbound & Down and the ridiculous, foul-mouthed anti-hero character that is Kenny Powers since the beginning.  I know some people are not big fans of Danny McBride, but I find him hilarious and this show, which he is heavily involved in the production of, was […]

Brandon’s Blu-ray Wishlist – June 20, 2014

Today’s wishlist was actually one of my most anticipated to see titles in the summer of 2008, believe it or not.  This cult classic comedy also was the start of one of today’s bigger comedy stars.  I still don’t think a lot of people are familiar with it. . . . .

Whether or not you knew this already, modern renaissance man/seemingly always squinting actor James Franco has not only been starring in films, but he has also tried his hand at directing several times.  One of his latest efforts is an adaptation of the William Faulkner novel As I Lay Dying, which is considered to be […]

‘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 […]
