Strangerland (Blu-ray Review)

Nicole Kidman, for obvious reasons, has always reminded me of Tom Cruise.  I’m not referring to the fact that they were once married, birthed children together or even starred in the same motion pictures.  I’m referring to the apparent fact that just like Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman (with makeup on of course) appears to suffer […]

‘The Hobbit: The Battle’ of Kill Kill, Stab Stab (Movie Review)

The second cinematic Middle-Earth trilogy has ended and now we are back where we started in 2002.  I am happy for those who are excited to rewatch The Lord of the Rings trilogy, following this ‘defining chapter,’ but I am left with other curiosities.  Having never read J.R.R Tolkien’s The Hobbit, I am curious about […]

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Did the world really need this?  Is the world even ready for this?  Wasn’t 10+ hours of theatrical cuts (and even more with the extended editions) enough to sit through back in the day and again on Blu-ray?  Are we ready for three more consecutive years of a tale that’s mainly self-contained in one book […]

Cloud Atlas (Blu-ray Review)

Ever see something so confusing that looks so mind-bending that you just had to see it with your own eyes despite what your better judgment and gut told you?  Well, that’s exactly how I felt about Cloud Atlas and its many bizarre, but very bold and ambitious trailers out there.  Much like the story within […]

‘The Hobbit’ Brings Back Jackson, Dwarves, And Epic Length (Movie Review)

And so it begins; another tale of perilous, fantastical traveling.  I think it is funny that I went into The Hobbit knowing incredibly little about the actual plot, only to find that there was not a whole lot to learn.  I have not read any of J.R.R. Tolkien’s books and have only seen trailers for […]

‘Cloud Atlas’ Presents A Sextet Like No Other

For all the sequels and blockbuster we have gotten this year, an ambitious, high-budgeted, semi-independent film has certainly tried to push itself to the top as well.  Cloud Atlas is one of the more unique films I have seen this year, as it not only swaps between six different storylines, but six different time periods, […]
