Man of Steel (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

When I first found out they were attempting to go down the road of reinventing, re-branding and rebooting the legendary Superman franchise I just flat out laughed.  Then I found out Watchmen’s Zack Snyder was directing the project.  I have absolutely nothing against the looks and visual style of his films.  I know Snyder has […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Before I begin with my review here I just want to take a moment to reflect upon the fact that when you think about it, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition is the biggest 4K UHD Blu-ray title to hit the infant format since its debut earlier this year.  Did that monumental […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition (Blu-ray Review)

It seems like forever since the mighty Aaron Neuwirth wrote of the manic news that broke at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 here, which surprised the six thousand plus fans in attendance with news that the direct follow-up to the very divided Man of Steel entry would not necessarily be a solo outing, but also would include the infamous […]

Darkness, Camera, Action! ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ (Movie Review)

‘Batman v Superman’ Is Gorgeous And Grim, With Little Room For Fun (Movie Review)

At its very best, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice depicts sequences ripped straight out of an Alex Ross comic book. When at its worst, this is a cold, muscled-up film that has the feel of something written by Frank Miller, minus the irony. There is far too much on display for me to call […]

Every Secret Thing (DVD Review)

An incredible ensemble women’s cast with a very well written script makes this DVD a keeper! Dakota Fanning continues to provide the most powerful performances, every time she’s on the screen.  She has always been a favorite of mine and still continues to amaze me.  But in this film, the one to really watch is […]

Man of Steel (Blu-ray Review)

When I first found out they were attempting to go down the road of reinventing, rebranding and rebooting the legendary Superman franchise I just flat out laughed.  However, if you think that was rude, you should have heard the expletives I said when I found out that Watchmen’s Zack Snyder was helming the project.  I […]

‘Man Of Steel’ Strives For Greatness, Settles On Good (Movie Review)

We’ll always have Superman: The Movie.  While Superman has arguably been the most recognizable superhero since his creation in 1938 and has remained a national icon, the 1978 film from Richard Donner seems to be the only time cinema had truly done its best to do him justice, let alone be the film that created […]

The ‘Man of Steel’ Takes His First Test Flight (Movie Review)

The day is finally upon us.  They said it couldn’t be done.  They said it was impossible.  They said not in your wildest imagination.  Okay.  I admit it.  I said all of this when I first found out they were attempting to go down the road of reinventing, rebranding and rebooting the legendary Superman franchise.  […]

Cinema Verite (Blu-ray Review)

Believing that the lives of an everyday family would be relatable to Americans in a way that existing TV shows were not, filmmakers set out to chronicle the life of the Louds, a seemingly “perfect family.” Once filming began though, the strain in the Loud’s marriage, the ups and downs of raising five children, as […]

Judge Dredd (Blu-ray Review German Import)

It’s been over fifteen years since Judge Dredd graced the big screen and brought Sylvester Stallone’s career to a screeching halt.  Up to that point, Judge Dredd was Stallone’s biggest film in terms of scope and budget and it bombed hard in the U.S.  Was it really that bad?  It all depends on who you […]

Secretariat (Blu-ray Review)

This story about a legendary horse and the family that owned him is a perfect fit for the big screen but unfortunately, this is one race that Secretariat lost due to following Seabiscuit who stole a lot of his thunder. Secretariat has a great cast (Diane Lane, John Malkovitch, Scott Glenn, James Cromwell and a […]

‘Secretariat’ Wins the Triple Crown for Mediocre Disney Sports Films

The best way I can describe this film is “very Disney.”  It follows all the rules of the inspiring, Disney-produced, sports film, based on a true story.  You have a few underdogs, characters with determination, the wild card mentor character, the skeptical stand by characters, the arrogant former champions, and even a “magical negro character.”  […]
