Miami Vice: The Complete Series (DVD Review)

Nothing represents the best of the 80’s better than Miami Vice.  From the pastel colors to the sock free loafers, from the fast Ferrari’s to the sizzling speed boats, the adventures of Vice Detectives James “Sonny” Crockett and Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs were not only influential to an entire decade, but also a huge part of […]

Alice Through The Looking Glass (Blu-ray Review)

Following Sweeney Todd, I was very excited for Tim Burton to be taking on Alice In Wonderland.  It looked like not only would it have the Burton stamp, but it would be sort of a follow up to the original tale.  However, the film came out the same weekend in 2010 that I got married. […]

Alice: Through the Looking Glass, Almost (Movie Review)

Hey guys, Ken here, and today’s Underdog is Alice: Through the Looking Glass. If you’ve seen the first movie, Alice in Wonderland, which released in 2010, you’ll understand why Brian didn’t feel like going to this one (hence why I used the word “underdog”).  The first movie wasn’t bad, but it certainly wasn’t worth paying $20.00 […]

‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ Reflects An Improved Installment (Movie Review)

Perhaps it is the bitter taste still left in my mouth after having watched Tim Burton’s blockbuster that was Alice in Wonderland, but I have much warmer feelings towards this sequel, directed by James Bobin. Alice Through the Looking Glass may not be improving much on a sense of substance, but the level of design […]

‘Cinderella’ Is All Dressed Up And Ready To Go (Movie Review)

I was not sure what to expect from Disney’s new Cinderella. The track record has not been great for the recent crop of live-action remakes of classic Disney animated features. Alice in Wonderland was elaborate, but bland; Snow White and The Huntsman (not Disney) went the forgettable “dark and gritty” route; and last year’s Maleficent […]

‘The Lone Ranger’ Trades A Pile Of Silver For An Overblown Adventure (Movie Review)

In 2002, audiences were able to see what came of a failed film that would have starred Johnny Depp.  This film was Lost in La Mancha, a documentary that chronicled the attempt by director Terry Gilliam to make a film about Don Quixote, only to be undone by production and budget problems, forcing the film […]

Johnny Depp’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ Show (Movie Review)

When I first learned that Disney was bringing back The Lone Ranger to the big screen I have to admit, I got rather excited.  Despite not being a huge fan of Westerns, I have fond childhood memories of the masked fighter of injustice and his white stallion, Silver.  Hi-ho Silver!  Away!  However, I had to […]

Les Misérables (iTunes HD Digital Download Review)

Being the Blu-ray snob I have been ever since the fall of 2006, I’d never thought I would ever hear myself mutter the following words.  It didn’t dawn on me until my move from Cleveland, OH to Austin, TX just how much cheaper it would have been to transport my 500 HD movies in the […]

‘Les Miserables’ Is Bombastic, But Sure To Please Audiences (Movie Review)

Right off the bat, I should say that between the novel by Victor Hugo, the stage play, and previous film adaptations, I am quite familiar with the story of Les Miserables.  The idea of a big-budget film musical, with an A-list set of actors, and an Oscar-winning director certainly sounds like a success story in […]
