The Girl on the Train (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review)

Before I begin this 4K Ultra HD review I wanted to give a big shout out to all my new Facebook friends on the 4K Ultra HD Home Cinema Group (join all the conversations here) for their support.  So let’s get down to business now.  The Girl on the Train instantly had two things going for […]

The Girl On The Train (Blu-ray Review)

The Girl on the Train instantly had two things going for it within my brain.  It features two actresses that will get me in the theater no matter what the film’s subject matter is about.  I’m respectfully talking Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson.  Ever since Edge of Tomorrow, Sicario and Mission Impossible Rogue Nation I’m a sucker for both of them.

The Magnificent Seven (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Try as I might, I just could not get to Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven (The original, a Western re-imagining of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai) in the theater.  I had a free ticket from The Magnificent Seven collection Blu-ray set I picked up at Best Buy to revisit it before this new one.

The Girl On The Train Rides On Blu-ray & 4K Ultra HD This January

Here’s one I saw in the theaters and I liked quite a bit.  So this is what it’s all about.  Questioning everything she knows, a woman must face her terrifying past in the wake of a darkly mysterious event to piece together the truth in the provocative thriller, The Girl on the Train.  Based on USA TODAY’s 2015 […]

‘The Girl On The Train’ Goes Nowhere Special (Movie Review)

Part of me would like to think The Girl on the Train is in on the joke. Here’s a film that no doubt understands how silly its story is, but happily lets the three main female cast members channel plenty of energy to provide strong performances. It manages to feature men these women obsess over, […]

Buy A Ticket To Ride With ‘The Girl On The Train’ (Movie Review)

The Girl on the Train instantly has two things going for it.  It features two actresses that will get me in the theater no matter what the film’s subject matter is about.  I’m respectfully talking Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson.  Ever since Edge of Tomorrow, Sicario and Mission Impossible Rogue Nation I’m a sucker for both […]

‘The Magnificent Seven’ Ride Into An Average Sunset (Movie Review)

It seems funny calling The Magnificent Seven a remake. Beyond knowing that 1960’s Magnificent Seven was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, this basic story of innocent people recruiting a ragtag group to help them stop an evil threat has been seen many times over the decades. Even Pixar has used this formula with […]

‘Hardcore Henry’ – Combat Evolved (Movie Review)

At its very best, Hardcore Henry has a lot in common with 2006’s Crank, starring Jason Statham. Both films have the sort of logic you would find in a video game and rarely take their foot off the gas to deliver anything all that deep. The difference is getting a personality you enjoy from Statham, […]

The Equalizer (Blu-ray Review)

Truth be told I wanted nothing to do with The Equalizer when it came out theatrically.  I even went as far as to not make any plans to attend the press screening of it when it dropped in my area.  What kind of reviewer does that?  I can tell you.  It’s a bad one.  I guess […]

The Equalizer Brings Balance To The Blu-ray Format This December

Here’s another title that slipped past me theatrically this year at the movies, but I have heard enough good word of mouth about The Equalizer, starring Academy Award Winner Denzel Washington, that I want to take the next step on the Blu-ray format and give it a chance.  Looks like I’ll get my cake and eat it […]

Sundance Selects presents KABOOM!

From independent film maker Gregg Araki (The Doom Generation and Nowhere) comes his most ambitious film yet.  KABOOM! If that title isn’t catchy then I don’t know what is.  From just looking at the trailer, one would think it’s a comedy, which did have me laughing, but then switches gears and borders on being a […]
