‘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. . . . .

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

As I Lay Dying (DVD Review)

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

30 Minutes or Less (Blu-ray Review)

I was a little apprehensive about going in and reviewing the Blu-ray of 30 Minutes or Less, because I never cared for the trailer or marketing materials that were released for it. It looked like a try-hard comedy film. Hey, but you gotta do what you gotta do when reviewing films, right? That’s what I […]

“30 Minutes Or Less” Will Be Delivered This November

This past summer saw the release of 30 Minutes or Less, director Ruben Fleischer’s follow up to the smash hit Zombieland.  While I can’t say that I personally loved the film (review HERE), it certainly had a lot going for it and I’m willing to give it a second shot on Blu-ray, come its release […]

’30 Minutes Or Less’ Wasn’t Quite A Speedy Delivery

Maybe I should have been eating pizza while watching the movie.  For a breezy “action-comedy” that only lasts 83 minutes, I really don’t think there should have been as much down time as there was.  30 Minutes or Less has the kind of high concept premise that seemed good for a fun flick.  It is […]

Eastbound and Down – The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)

Kenny Powers, the washed up former Major League pitcher, is back with more of his self-destructive behavior and penchant for profanity in Eastbound & Down: The Complete Second Season. Outrageous and irreverent, Powers (Danny McBride) finds himself heading south of the border after a humiliating letdown that would have put him back in baseball changes […]

‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ Serves Up Another Bowl of Awesomeness

The Dragon Warrior, a panda bear named Po, is back with his team of martial arts animal warrior friends known as the Furious Five in this gorgeous sequel to Kung Fu Panda.  I emphasize gorgeous, as the animation (which includes different animation styles), use of color, and martial arts choreography are all wonderfully executed (it […]
