Knight Of Cups (Blu-ray Review)

This Hollywood-based effort from writer/director Terrence Malick seemed to only leave a small impact in the year of its release, but Knight of Cups certainly feels like the director continuing to challenge himself. At the risk of repeating himself to the point of self-parody, one of the most elusive auteur directors made a Los Angeles […]

Fight Evil With Feedback In The ‘Green Room’ (Movie Review)

The Green Room is one of those films that you’ll hear your colleagues in the business say you have to see, especially if you loved the raw, natural brutality that was the revenge flick Blue Ruin (see our Blu-ray review of it here) a few years back.  That’s because the Blue Ruin director, Jeremy Saulnier […]

‘Knight Of Cups’ Is An Auteur In Overdrive (Movie Review)

It may be more worthwhile to examine the ‘what if’ scenario of what a superhero film directed by Terrence Malick would be like, rather than try to decipher his latest feature, Knight of Cups, but I’m going for it anyway. At the risk of repeating himself to the point of self-parody, one of the most […]

BOOOO! Brandon’s Top 10 Modern Horror Remakes

Take the “Booo!” in the title as either the ghostly scare sound or the hoards of fanboys’ reactions when something gets remade.  Over the last 15 years or so we’ve seen plenty of reboots, reimaginings and remakes come to fruition throughout each film going year.  The horror genre has certainly been the genre the most […]

Need For Speed (Blu-ray Review)

Video game movies have yet to really “take off” like the comic book ones.  There’s many attempts, but aside from the Resident Evil franchise, none have really taken off.  They don’t usually dominate the box office and are usually met with mixed critical reviews at best.  However, fans will tell you, these games have such […]

How Much Need Was There For ‘Need For Speed’? (Movie Review)

Need for Speed is a lot like a shady used car salesman.  The film presents the viewer with the shininess of something new; in this case a video game movie that relies on a heavy use of practical effects to show off fancy cars driving fast.  However, beneath this kinetic frosting are a lot of […]

NEED FOR SPEED Behind The Scenes Featurette “The Guys” Now Available!

DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” marks an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when the authenticity of the world brought a new level of intensity to the action on-screen. Tapping into what makes the American myth of the open road so appealing, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country […]

‘That Awkward Moment’…Indeed (Movie Review)

A few days ago I was discussing the HBO series Entourage with some friends and going over how it began as a fairly entertaining series, but eventually amounted to some conflict that could be extinguished with the simple mantra of, “Vince and the gang are going to be alright.”  The show mainly relied on the […]

NBFF Review: Greetings From Tim Buckley, Isolated, And Welcome To The Jungle

Saturday at the 2013 Newport Beach Film Festival was a busy day.  I specifically planned it that way, as I wanted my Sunday to be more relaxed.  So I ended up seeing 4 different films, none of which were similar in any way.  It was a full schedule and I have thoughts on three of […]

Go Forth And Have The ‘Fright Night’ Of Your Life

I am happy when my optimism is met with pleasing results.  The idea of remaking the 1985 vampire horror/comedy Fright Night seemed like fairly solid idea in my eyes.  There’s a structure to that story that could easily serve as a template for a modern update.  I can’t say that I was initially sold on […]

‘Fright Night’ Scares Up Frights

Let me start out by saying that films are out of my expertise, I am an in your face gamer.  However, I was fortunate enough to attend an advance screening of the film in 3-D.  I would much rather see a film the regular way not only do I think 3-D is stupid but it’s […]
