Fury (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Seems like forever ago, but director David Ayer actually stocked himself up some well reviewed movies before the back-to-back nosedive of Suicide Squad and Bright. While critical praise isn’t there, Suicide Squad did made oodles of money and Bright was a pretty sizeable success for Netflix. Fury was the film prior to those, that had […]

SDCC 2017: Bright looks awesome

Bright was the panel I was honestly most interested in. From the moment it was announced, I’ve been following the production. Anything with director David Ayer has my interest. He’s an absolutely insane director, and when he’s not being held back by studio restrictions, he always delivers something that’s compelling and worth discussing after. I […]

Suicide Squad (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Suicide Squad is one of those movies where you just have to get that first screening under your belt.  It’s like being on a Southwest Airlines airplane.  You know how you hear that ding and the captain says you’re now free to move around the cabin?  It’s sort of the same principle with David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.  […]

Suicide Squad Saves The World With Disappointment (Movie Review)

Suicide Squad needs no further word of mouth to market this one.  Warner Bros. made plenty sure of that with all the various trailers and TV spots.  Heck, Margot Robbie is practically the poster child of this one.  Who needs the Joker and Batman?  She sells the film herself as Harley Quinn, but seriously.  The […]

The Messy Guns: From The Files Of ‘Suicide Squad’ (Movie Review)

There’s a scene at the end of the second act of Suicide Squad where Task Force X, a group of supervillains brought together to fight fire with fire (sometimes literally), hang out in a bar. The idea is to have the group relate to each other and come to the conclusion that the world may […]

New Suicide Squad “Blitz” Trailer!

I have to admit, I wasn’t the biggest fan of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad when it was announced and especially after seeing stills of the Killer Croc or whatever his name is.  However, everything started to shift emotionally within me when the first trailer dropped.  Then came the next and so on and they just get […]

The SUICIDE SQUAD Trailer Has Dropped!

I have to admit I may have been losing faith in the DC side of comic book movies. Don’t get me wrong, the Dark Knight trilogy was fantastic, but it ended, and what else was inspiring? Not Green Lantern. Not Man of Steel. So there I was wishing for DC to get in the game, […]

Comic-Con 2015: Suicide Squad Trailer

I’m not sure this trailer first shown at Comic-Con really needs no introduction?  The verbiage in this first paragraph should just say click and watch me!  Haha!  Of course I’m talking about David Ayer’s much-anticipated Suicide Squad which hits theaters August 5, 2016 and stars  Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Viola Davis.  The film takes place obviously […]

Top Ten: Aaron’s Most Disappointing Films & The Worst Of 2014

Never a post of joy, but every year does see the release of films that are not very good.  I never seek out films with the purpose of hating them and a majority of these are not without redeemable elements, but if I have at least 10 films on a list that I consider better […]

A Tough Drive And the ‘Fury’ Five (Movie Review)

World War II has been the source of a lot of great war movies, let alone movies in general.  It seems to have a near endless supply of material, when it comes to developing new ideas for screenplays.  Fury may not be the first film about a tank crew, but it does seem like a […]

‘Sabotage’ Has Been Breached (Movie Review)

Sabotage is a nasty little thriller from writer/director David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch), which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger in another leading action movie role, following his term as Governor.  The film is getting its share of notice for having a plot that feels akin to an Agatha Christie-styled whodunit, as it revolves around Arnold’s […]

I’m Tellin’ y’all it’s ‘Sabotage’ (Movie Review)

So Sabotage!  Yeah!  I’m at a loss for words, truly.  I really wanted nothing to do with this one, but since it was a pretty lifeless week for press screeners in the Austin, TX area and there’s not a single one slated for Noah I thought why not?  I have been pleasantly surprised before and […]

Two Good Cops Work Until The ‘End Of Watch’

Talk about surprises!  End of Watch is maybe the best cop drama I have seen since The Departed, let alone the best cop film I have seen in quite some time that does not involve corrupt or undercover officers who get in too deep.  This seems like a film that could have been incredibly generic, […]
