Comic-Con 2013: 20th Century Fox Panel

Although Fox never listed what was going to be covered during their Comic-Con panel this year, I knew I had to be there because I was pretty sure that The Wolverine would be included and I had a sneaky suspicion that we might get to see some X-Men: Days of Future Past footage.  I was […]

‘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.

The Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King Theatrical (Blu-ray Review)

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke At last, we sadly come to the end.  Third acts in movie franchises have historically been weaker than the movies that preceded them.  There are rare exceptions to that but if you think about movies like […]

The Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers Theatrical (Blu-ray Review)

After the critical and commercial success of The Fellowship of the Ring, the expectations were higher for The Two Towers.  For Peter Jackson and crew, The Two Towers was the hardest movie to make out of the three because when their script was changed from two movies (as originally intended) to three, some major changes […]

The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring (Blu-ray Review)

The greatest and most ambitious series of fantasy movies has finally come to Blu-ray!  The Lord of the Rings trilogy represents one of the biggest gambles in modern film history as all three films were filmed at once with a director who was better known for small horror movies, not to mention the fact that […]
