Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Ten New Indie Titles

Since those top lists of ten are always popular columns, why not attach such a number to my weekly indie roundup?  Yup, I’m tenaciously tackling a triumphant ten smaller cinematic flicks to give smaller film fare lovers a much needed critical head’s up.  Tales of angry moms and their big billboards, curious teen gals with […]

Warrior (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I don’t mean to steal anyone’s thunder so please don’t think that of me here.  However, what I want to do is call attention to a quote on the cover of this 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Warrior.  I typically hate these unimaginative one-liners, but this one stands out to me because it’s more […]

It’s Your God Given Right To ‘Purge’ This ‘Election Year’ (Movie Review)

Something weird happened in 2014.  My girlfriend made me take her to see The Purge: Anarchy in the theater.  Why is this newsworthy?  Hold on!  I’m getting to it.  I like a slow burn.  Haha.  It’s remarkable because of my  disdain of the first entry in this Purge franchise.  I initially absolutely hated the concept […]

‘The Purge’ Finds A Winning Vote In Aptly-Titled ‘Election Year’ (Movie Review)

There is something to admire in The Purge franchise that has stemmed from a singular voice, writer/director James DeMonaco. This twisted franchise has not been my favorite, but it has been influenced by topical subject matter that now pushes this latest entry, The Purge: Election Year, to a point that almost feels plausible. Some audiences […]

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Thrills Divisionally (Movie Review)

I guess you could say with the exception of Rogue One and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War is amongst my most anticipated films of the year.  Many of my peers tell me that’s pretty sad being a critic and a screenwriter by night trying to be taken seriously, but I […]

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Gets A Trailer!

Below is the trailer, but here’s the synopsis too if you’re into words (but you know you really want to see that trailer).  Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, […]

TOP 10: Brian White’s Most Obsessed Over Blu-rays of 2014

Unlike recent years, I really didn’t acquire as many Blu-ray titles in 2014 as I typically do in a 12-month calendar.  Sure there are Blu-ray titles that I reviewed and held onto, but the others made their way into my collection when they were either priced exceptionally well (mostly horror sets I never grabbed before) or “Day 1” titles that […]

Brian White Ranks His Top 3 Horror Films of All-Time Plus 1!

Growing up as a child in the early 80s I fell in love with the old black-and-white Universal Monsters films that my dad would leave playing carelessly on the tube.  For some reason, even as a young child, I just wasn’t scared of Lon Chaney as the Wolf Man or Boris Karloff as Frankenstein.  Instead, […]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Blu-ray Review)

It’s a rare occurrence when a movie drops a trailer that looks incredible, has expectations set very high and then delivers.  Captain America: The Winter Soldier did just that.  The film also opted to be a Spring movie and in turn wound up being the highest grossing film domestically until just a week ago.  Pretty […]

The Purge: Catching Fire & Rescue (Movie Review)

One of the more impressive aspects of The Purge: Anarchy is not really the movie itself, but the fact that how it was sold managed to get me excited, despite the first ‘Purge’ from a year ago finding its way to my ‘Worst of 2013’ list.  Fast-tracked sequel or not, ‘Anarchy’ seemed set out to […]

Winter Is Coming For ‘Captain America’ (Movie Review)

Captain America really has his work cut out for him.  Along with being a man who now lives in modern times after being frozen for several decades, he is also an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. performing intense field work, a devotee to untangling a web of international conspiracies if it means keeping his country safe, and […]

Captain America and Winter Soldier Kick it in Cleveland (Movie Review)

Let’s be honest with each other.  Both Marvel and DC have their hands filled with tackling tricky properties on the big screen and showing off big, bold and ambitious new worlds to us all.  You would think on paper Captain America would be an easy property to formulaically develop proper, but you’d be wrong.  Captain […]

Statham And Franco Face Off In ‘Homefront’ (Movie Review)

I love it when a movie really delivers on its promise.  Make no mistake, Homefront is a B-movie, but it is a damn good one.  It is the kind of action film that roots itself in the actions of characters and only feels gratuitous in the presentation of certain action scenes, but not in the […]

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Trailer Debuts

With Iron Man 3 sitting as the highest grossing film of the year and Thor: The Dark World just around the corner and building some great buzz, Marvel’s Phase 2 is certainly off an running.  Now we have the first trailer for Captain America:  The Winter Soldier, which looks to be just as exciting and in […]

Two Good Cops Work Until The ‘End Of Watch’

Talk about surprises!  End of Watch is maybe the best cop drama I have seen since The Departed, let alone the best cop film I have seen in quite some time that does not involve corrupt or undercover officers who get in too deep.  This seems like a film that could have been incredibly generic, […]
