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 […]

SXSW Review: Sausage Party (Work-in-Progress)

Sausage Party is the worst, least funny comedy I have ever seen. It is full to the brim with lazily written, stereotyping, racist, sexist, homophobic, reference-heavy, swear-ridden “jokes” that try way too hard to seem either controversial or profound and just end up being nothing. There is nothing to like about this film. I chuckled […]

A Quick Look At The Best Casino Movies Now on Blu-ray

Before Ocean’s trilogy, 21 and the disappointing remake of The Gambler, the casino genre consisted of great films like The Cincinnati Kid and The Sting.  Movies released in the past decade haven’t all been bad, but IMDB’s list of top casino films demonstrate that there are very few that are just as stellar as the […]

Birdman (Blu-ray Review)

Birdman is an ambitious and unpredictable ball of energy that just so happens to be a spectacular film to watch.  Currently nominated for 9 Academy Awards, appearing on over 100 Top Ten lists, this was one of the defining films of 2014.  I was hugely anticipating the film before its release and was blown away […]

‘Birdman’ Forever (Movie Review)

As if I needed more reasons to want to love Michael Keaton as a performer, director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has given the actor a fantastic role that puts him back in the spotlight, in a film that puts heavy emphasis on what it is to mean something to many, only to want to redefine one’s […]

The Grand Budapest Hotel (Blu-ray Review)

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a film not only packed with characters, sets, costumes, and all the things that tend to typify writer/director Wes Anderson’s style, it is also packed with story.  It is becoming more and more clear to me how much Anderson enjoys having films that are about stories being told to an […]

The ‘Bourne’ Renner

I remember hearing how The Bourne Identity was not an easy movie to make, with various production issues that caused the film to go over budget and be pushed back several months, before finally hitting theaters.  Before that film became a success, it was also stated that a sequel seemed unlikely, due to the difficulty […]

Behold The Outdoor Majesty Of ‘Moonrise Kingdom’

Just to get it out of the way, I am a big fan of writer/director Wes Anderson’s work (Rushmore, The Royal Tenembaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, etc.) and was already inclined to enjoy his latest film.  The fact that I really enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom does not come from a bias however; it comes from recognizing a […]
