Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Truth be told I really have no right reviewing this.  Yes, I’m tackling this one by default because I have two 4K Ultra HD setups at home, but I have never seen the original Jumanji starring Robin Williams.  Is that bad?  I’m told no because I surveyed a lot of my peers and none of […]

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (Blu-ray Review)

The bar wasn’t very high for me when it came to my expectations for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. 1995’s Jumanji is not a good movie, let alone some untouchable classic. The idea of taking Jumanji and putting a new spin on it may have seemed problematic for some and for a good reason, but […]

‘Jumanji’ Delivers A Welcome Return To The Jungle (Movie Review)

Honestly, the bar wasn’t very high for me when it came to my expectations for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. I already feel like my title is misleading, as 1995’s Jumanji is not a good movie, let alone some untouchable classic. As much a fan as I was of Robin Williams, there’s a handful of […]

‘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 […]

Comic Con 2014: Sony Pictures Panel: Pixels and Goosebumps

Either Sony Pictures just could not get enough films together for panels this year or they are still recouping from the expenditures from Spider-Man’s appearance at last year’s Comic Con, but regardless, this was a pretty stripped down affair for a studio that currently has a couple square blocks devoted to a number of their upcoming features […]

Anchorman – The Legend of Ron Burgundy – Unrated Rich Mahogany Edition – (Blu-ray Review)

Anchorman is one of those films I have not visited since its theatrical release way back in the calendar year of 2004.  I cannot believe it has been that long, but I digress.  What looked like a slapstick comical movie back then that I would go for practically fizzled for me when I first saw […]

The Big Year (Blu-ray Review)

There was a time when a new comedy starring Jack Black, Steve Martin, and Owen Wilson would’ve been, well, kind of a big deal.  Sadly, those days seem to have passed.  Somewhere in between Gulliver’s Travels, The Pink Panther 2, and Drillbit Taylor, these formerly reliable comic actors stopped drawing massive crowds and started churning […]
