Comic Con 2014: Comedy Central First Look: Moonbeam City

I was happy to sit in on the Comedy Central panel at Comic Con and following a hilarious panel for the hit sketch show Key & Peele (I reviewed the Blu-ray for the first two seasons HERE), a special look at a new animated series took place.  Here’s the official word:  Today at San Diego […]

The LEGO Movie: Everything Is Awesome Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Let’s get one thing straight from the start.  When I went into the press screening earlier this year I was completely against this movie.  While it looked unique and looked like it could be fun, I just did not want to invest the time in it and regret it later because you know life’s too short, yada, […]

‘The Lego Movie’ Has Been Built Into Something Awesome (Movie Review)

This is one of those “expectations exceeded” situations.  I was already plenty happy to go into The Lego Movie, given the lively and fun marketing presented for this film, along with my knowledge that it has come from the directors or both Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, films I very […]

Everything Is Awesome In ‘The Lego Movie’ (Movie Review)

Let’s get one thing straight from the start.  Even going into the press screening this past Saturday I was against this movie.  While it looked unique and looked like it could be fun, I just did not want to invest the time in it and regret it later because you know life’s too short, yada, […]

Catch The Fire of The Hunger Games on Blu-ray This March!

Wow!  I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally get the official word that Hunger Games: Catching Fire is just around the corner on the Blu-ray format with a release date of March 7th!  I can’t even recount all the times I tried to catch this one theatrically after missing the press screening in […]

Comedy Bang Bang: The Complete First Season (DVD Review)

I am a big fan of Comedy Bang Bang and the comedic sensibilities of its creator and star Scott Aukerman.  I have to follow that statement by saying Comedy Bang Bang can be very divisive, as it presents a type of absurdist humor that not everyone can go along with.  Yes, the show features a […]

‘Catching Fire’ Burns Down The Competition (Movie Review)

With Twilight having ended and The Hobbit being something of a different beast, there is little that The Hunger Games franchise currently has to compete with, in terms of popular book series being adapted into films.  Several others have come out recently (The Host, Beautiful Creatures, The Mortal Instruments, etc.), but none have found the […]

‘Pitch Perfect’ Is Aca-Okay

I may be a guy, in his 20s, who writes about movies and Blu-rays, and plays video games, and would have seemingly no reason to want to see a film about competitive a capella groups, but I found the trailer to be slight, but enjoyable, and who can say no to a smile from Anna […]

‘People Like Us’ Is Sentimental Stuff

I really don’t have anything against this movie for what it tries to be.  Given that someone already went ahead and called pull quote credit by proclaiming People Like Us as “The feel good movie of the summer,” I get the feeling that anyone that is going into this movie will probably have a good […]

Man On A Ledge (Blu-ray Review)

Man on a Ledge is a silly film about a man perching himself outside of a building, with a heist-like situation occurring at the same time.  It has a fairly strong cast and seemed like a film more fit for early autumn, rather than in the middle of January this past winter.  After seeing it, […]

The Hunger Games Are On Like Donkey Kong

It seems like The Hunger Games could have easily been a huge disaster waiting to happen, regardless of the monetary success it becomes in its opening weekend.  The film is based on another popular book series, geared more towards a teenage audience, featuring a familiar narrative, with a romantic angle added on to boot.  We […]

‘Man On A Ledge’ Jumps To Ridiculous Conclusions

There is a great film out there that seems to be about one thing, but is actually a lot more like another thing entirely.  It involves a man who must place himself in a precariously high position on a building, with a plan to accomplish a certain task.  Despite having this task in mind however, […]

‘Our Idiot Brother’ Is A Pretty Nice Guy

In Our Idiot Brother, Paul Rudd is able to do something few actors can in the opening minutes of the film.  He makes us instantly like him.  His character’s hippy-ish, Dude-like persona is non-grating and adorable, despite the fact that his character, Ned, makes some poor choices.  It is just too bad he has to […]

You Can Dig a Lot of Holes ‘The Next Three Days’

I hope some comments answer the question I am going to start this off with.  Why this film is called The Next Three Days?  After sitting through this silly thriller, which consists of a lot of empty entertainment that can easily fall apart for the viewer if they try to step back and think about […]
