Aaron’s Terrific Top Ten Films of 2016

The end of 2016 means an end to another year of great cinema. I had a tough time putting together this final list of films, as there was a strong selection to go through. Having watched over 175 films theatrically this year, it was fun to narrow things down to a final list of ten […]

Top 10 Films Of 2016: A Brandon Peters Story

As always when I do these “Best” lists, I ask two things of you, the reader.  Take the words best or top and replace it with “favorite”.  And importantly, number or ranking doesn’t matter, what is included does.  2016 was an interesting year for me, in that I feel a hair underqualified, but still, this […]

A Terrific Look At The City Of Stars In ‘La La Land’ (Movie Review)

Out in the world is someone with an idea that will turn into a great film. Filmmaker Damien Chazelle is proof that these people exist. Managing to do this twice is not easy accomplishment. So seeing Chazelle follow up on the intense joy that was Whiplash with La La Land, a 50s-style musical set in […]

Keeping in touch with the indie flicks of the week amidst a sea of year-end movies, there are more movies being watched than at ten film festivals combined.  But bound and determined to give our readers the skinny on cinema, I still managed to check out four smaller films this week and the subjects are […]

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 Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Blu-ray Review)

When I moved to Austin, TX over a year ago from Cleveland, OH I expected my change of scenery to be quite stimulating and invigorating, but you all know that whole grass is always greener on the other side thing, right?  While the skies may not be grey all the time like in Cleveland, I […]

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Forever (Movie Review)

I am a Batman fan. People who know me well enough are pretty clear on that. With that said, while Batman and the characters in his universe provide more for me to think about, I also grew up reading and watching Spider-Man (and occasionally his amazing friends). I may find something more inherently interesting in […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Enemies Unite Sizzle

Here’s the last trailer I plan on posting for now.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had a Super Bowl spot, but rather than post that, I went for the 4-minute extended trailer, which basically highlights that this big summer sequel is going to be all about Oscorp throwing everything they’ve got at Peter Parker.  Will it […]

Rhinos, Goblins, and Electro, oh my!  Certainly plenty of threats coming Spider-Man’s way in the upcoming sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  Arriving May 2, 2014, we now have a trailer to behold, which certainly emphasizes the kinds of things you see in trailers to sequels in big franchises.  I had previously written a post regarding […]

The Croods (Blu-ray Review)

So the time has now come where I can say that I have seen The Croods.  Sure, this is not the most epic pronouncement, but the film was a big hit, potentially establishing a new animated franchise for DreamWorks Animation and it had enough regard to make me curious.  It helps that the film is […]

DUN DUN DAHHH! Dreamworks’ The Croods Arrives on Blu-ray This October

Here’s an animated film that I never got around to seeing, but heard enough good things to make me kind of regret not doing so.  Maybe it has to do with curiosity surrounding Nic Cage playing a caveman in an animated film (though not being animated would make me more curious) or maybe it has […]

Comic-Con 2013: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

This is a big jump to way towards the end of Friday’s activities in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con this year, but I figure Spider-man is popular enough to have more people curious about what went on here than other panels I was able to witness. Here is the official description of what […]
