Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Three New Indie Titles

With recent back to back film fest coverage it’s been quite a task keeping up with the weekly indie releases (have no fear – quantity in smaller cinema will return to full force film fans!), so this week we’re hitting a couple missed flicks and one new one.  Unconventional childhood stories, tales of survival in […]

Ted 2 (Movie Review)

I haven’t wanted to walk out a movie so badly since last summer’s “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” also written/directed/starring Seth MacFarlane. If “Ted 2” doesn’t make my top 5 Worst Films of the Year in December, I’m going to be horrified. Lazy, pandering, boring, unbearably long, and excruciatingly unfunny, “Ted 2” […]

‘Selma’ Is Incredible, Inspiring, and Important (Movie Review)

I have been told I have something of a knack for impressions.  Not particularly in how I look or even sound, but in finding the cadence in whatever humorous display I may be attempting to put on.  David Oyelowo does not really look like Martin Luther King, Jr., but he does more than just get […]

SELMA – Watch the First Trailer For The New Film About Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

We have had announcements about Star Wars, Hobbit, Toy Story 4, and more today, but this post certainly does not seem to pale in comparison, as it is about the trailer for a new film about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., which is looking to garner a lot of attention this awards season. David Oyelowow stars […]

The Wonder Years – The Complete Series (DVD Review)

Since the advent of television on DVD, one series has had a vocal push to get it out and available for purchase.  The Wonder Years, the 1960s/early 70s coming of age television show was beloved and still cherished to this day.  Many years went by and there were never any plans for it.  Then it […]

‘A Million Ways’ To Seem Like A Western…Not Enough To Be Hilarious (Movie Review)

The surprising thing about Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West is how devoted to the genre it actually is. While I can only think of so many western comedies offhand, there are plenty of ways to turn the genre on its head and have a lot of fun with it. MacFarlane […]

That Thing You Do! (Blu-ray Review)

That Thing You Do! was the directorial debut of Tom Hanks from back in 1996 and it is still a joy to watch.  The film is a light-hearted look at a fictional band that became a one-hit wonder sensation during a summer in the 60s.  The film features a simple, but very accessible story, fun […]

This April Do ‘That Thing You Do’ On Blu

Well it’s about time!  As much as I like getting to see big blockbusters on Blu-ray for their awesome sound and video quality, and as much as I like to see old classics get their restored treatment on Blu-ray, there are still a good number of more modern films that have yet to make their […]

Crazy, Stupid, ‘Gangster Squad’ (Movie Review)

Gangster Squad is the R-rated, spiritual successor to Dick Tracy that nobody wanted.  The film is a stylish exercise in action sequences, featuring a bunch of good actors that have decided not to do much acting, aside from Sean Penn, who attempts to devour every scene he is in and hopes to stop short of […]

‘Avatar’ Limited 3D Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Avatar is finally available for all of those who wanted to purchase a 3D version of the film.  James Cameron’s groundbreaking film has obviously had an effect on how people now view movies (for better or worse), given the onslaught of 3D releases, but now anyone with the proper capabilities will be able to experience […]

‘Ted’ Is A Pretty Fuzzin’ Funny Movie

I laughed a lot during Ted.  It sits next to 21 Jumps Street for me, currently, as the best pure comedy of 2012.  It is a high-concept comedy that could have easily worn itself out, coming off more as an extended Saturday Night Live sketch, but it doesn’t.  Ted, while profane and raunchy at times, […]

Go Gonzo With ‘The Rum Diary’

In the 1998 Terry Gilliam film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which has Johnny Depp playing one of the various incarnations of writer Hunter S. Thompson, you could use many different adjectives and phrases to describe it, but a decidedly fun romp is not the one I would immediately jump to.  With The Rum […]
