‘The LEGO Ninjago Movie’ Packs A Punch And Some Laughs (Movie Review)

I’ll say upfront that The LEGO Ninjago Movie is a fun blend of action and comedy. Of the three theatrical films in the LEGO cinematic universe so far, this is the most kid-friendly, as far as the scale of which side a majority of the jokes/visuals lean on. However, it should also be noted that […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Five New Indie Titles

Mr. Right (Blu-ray Review)

This is the kind of movie where you really have to go into it with a sense of lightheartedness and fun.  Mr. Right is by no means something one should take seriously at all.  Now I’m not saying that this is a BAD thing.  I’m simply trying to prepare you for some pretty wack stuff!  […]

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.

Rush Hour (Blu-ray Review)

It was in 1998 when a 29-year old director by the name of Brett Ratner brought together an unlikely pairing of martial arts guru Jackie Chan and fast talker Chris Tucker.

The Karate Kid – No Wax Required!

The Karate Kid is no doubt a re-imagining of the 1984 film, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out why they changed the original title of the film, The Kung Fu Kid.  Other than a very quick reference or two made in dialog, the film has nothing to do with karate.  However, […]
