Look Who’s ‘Taken’ Now (Movie Review)

My favorite scene in A Walk Among the Tombstones, the previous Liam Neeson thriller that found the 62-year-old actor facing up against a number of deadly foes, involved Neeson’s character talking a knife-wielding man out of fighting, because they both knew how it would end.  It showed how much of an intimidating force Neeson can […]

Lord Of Illusions – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Its no wonder that after the back to back experiences of Nightbreed and Lord Of Illusions, that horror maestro Clive Barker hasn’t take the director’s chair since.  It wasn’t as much an extreme case with Lord Of Illusions, but once again the studio did not seem to understand Barker’s vision for the film.  And during […]

The Wolverine (Blu-ray Review)

I feel like this film and I have a lot in connection whereas this flick had setback after setback getting made, I had nothing but difficulties trying to see this one theatrically.  Fellow WSB reviewer Aaron Neuwirth can attest to the fact that I did get to catch the first twenty minutes of the feature […]

Hansel & Gretel Slay The Blu-ray Format on June 11th

Honestly, I’m not sure what to expect with Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.  And to be completely honest, I’m only wanting to see it for one exclusive reason…the beautiful Tamara Drewe…oops I mean Gemma Arterton is in it.  Basically…you put her in anything and I will want to watch it.  Even Evil Dead!  Heck…even Famke […]

Hansel & Gretel Need to Hunt Writer, Not Witches

A co-worker first told me about this film some months back, of which I thought he was joking. When he persisted that there really was a Hansel & Gretel movie coming out, I made a mad dash to my phone and checked out the trailer. My initial thought was, “What’s this? The latest trend on […]

Rounders (Blu-ray Review)

Wow, looks like it’s time to party like it’s 1999, I mean 1998, up in here!  Time really flies when you’re having fun.  It seems like yesterday when I was watching these two up-and-comers tackle the screen with an industry veteran.  The newbies were Matt Damon and some kid named Edward Norton.  The veteran was […]
