Patriots Day (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

In 2016, director Peter Berg and star Mark Wahlberg teamed for a pair of action-oriented films base on real life big headline stories trying to display American heroism.  The first was Deepwater Horizon, focusing on the 2010 oil spill and the other was Patriots Day that was about the bombing  at the 2013 Boston Marathon and […]

The Accountant (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Accountant makes for a stupid film title in my opinion.  I don’t care how good the movie is, I still hate the name given.  I probably couldn’t come up with anything better, but that’s why I am writing Blu-ray movie reviews and not films themselves.  However, you can’t say it doesn’t grab your attention.  Come […]

‘Patriots Day’ Skillfully Portrays A Successful Manhunt (Movie Review)

If Deepwater Horizon was a solid warm up for director Peter Berg earlier this year, then Patriots Day is the hit he was going for. Working to portray an intense, real life situation without exploiting it, Berg carefully balances tragedy with heroics spread through a variety of characters simply doing their job. Minus some final […]

Too Many Variables Complicate ‘The Accountant’ (Movie Review)

Right away it should be said that while The Accountant is not quite “good” it did impress me due to its existence. It was of little surprise to find that the film was once on the Hollywood Blacklist (a list of the most liked unmade scripts), as it clearly tries to accomplish a lot and […]

Zootopia (Blu-ray Review)

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ (WDAS) comedy-adventure, “Zootopia” has broken records worldwide earning more than $900 million at the global box office to date. The best reviewed movie of 2016, critics and audiences around the world have fallen in love with the wonderfully innovative animal metropolis of “Zootopia” and the comedic chemistry of rookie rabbit officer […]

‘Zootopia’ Presents Profound Discourse In A Fun Family Film (Movie Review)

Here’s a simple claim right off the bat – Zootopia is a true triumph for Disney. The animation studio has had something of a resurgence in recent years with films such as Frozen and Big Hero 6, but Zootopia feels like an actual classic. That is high praise for the Mouse House, but the balance […]

‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Completes A Trilogy Of Awesomeness (Movie Review)

After a fairly lengthy wait, especially considering today’s handling of sequel schedules, Po and the Furious Five are back for more Kung Fu Panda fun. This third entry in DreamWorks Animation’s solid martial arts action-comedy franchise does not quite reach the great heights of the prior two installments, but that doesn’t mean this film is […]

Super-Sized Top Ten: Aaron’s Killer Blu-ray Picks For 2015

I have gone and done it again with this Blu-ray list. Much like last year, I have decided to tackle every aspect of what I enjoyed about this year in Blu-ray. This best-of list consists of what I consider to be the best 2015 had to offer for the Blu-ray format, with a few rules […]

Terminator Genisys (Blu-ray Review)

To say the Terminator franchise has been a troubled one these past two entries would be like saying there’s a distinctive taste difference between vanilla and chocolate ice cream.  It’s simply that apparent.  Just when you thought Terminator Salvation was going to reinvigorate the franchise, production of a fifth film went right down the toilet slapped with bankruptcy forcing […]

‘Whiplash’ Rat-a-Tat-Tats Its Way Onto Blu-ray Next Month

If there’s one thing I know for certain in my life, it’s that I have to check out Whiplash next February 24th when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment brings it home on the Blu-ray format.  I feel like I am the only person in the movie reviewing biz that hasn’t seen this one and all my peers […]

Pom Poko (Blu-ray Review)

Pom Poko is the seventh film from the animation house Studio Ghibli.  It is also their first film in the canon to use computer animation in the film.  I couldn’t tell you where exactly or how it was used, as its not very evident upon watching the movie as it all looks two dimensionally hand […]

‘Whiplash’ Most Certainly Hit The Tempo I Wanted (Movie Review)

Being a great drummer is clearly no easy feat.  One would not think a young jazz musician wanting to play drum at a music school would be the source for a gripping thriller, but then again, writer/director Damien Chazelle was responsible for writing the film Grand Piano, which was a thriller about a man forced […]

Dark Skies (Blu-ray Review)

About three weeks ago I received a weird unmarked postcard in the mail.  It was black with strange red symbols and the only text to be found on it were the words “Were You Chosen?”  I snapped a photo of it and texted it to my girlfriend and Gerard Iribe.  Neither one knew what it […]
