The Birth Of A Nation (Blu-ray Review)

The Birth of a Nation came and went last year. Following its breakout at the Sundance Film Festival, the proceeding months were not kind to writer/director/producer/star Nate Parker, based on a muddy history that was brought back into the news. Still, there is a righteous part of me that sees a film recounting a historical […]

Parker’s ‘Birth Of A Nation’ Strikes Back At History (Movie Review)

The Birth of a Nation is a film designed to challenge various parts of me. There is a righteous part of me that sees a film recounting a historical event tying into relevant topics still affecting America today, as the nation continues to court more and more woke individuals. The other part concerns my role […]

Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

This review is going to be a challenge for me.  You see, I’m not the world’s biggest Watchmen fan by any means.  The limited comic series of the same name bores me.  I also know how devastating that must be to read in the third sentence of a review.  However, let the record show, I’ve […]

‘Robocop’ Fails Its Prime Directive (Movie Review)

There is a reason why robots, cyborgs, and similar devices have gotten a lot of attention in science fiction over the years.  The idea of man creating a machine and what that could mean for life is an intriguing concept that can play on both the positives and negatives of the scenario.  Taking it further […]

Good Cop, Bad Cop(s), Robocop (Movie Review)

Going into this screening last night I was fearful of only one thing.  Please God!  Don’t let this be a horrible remake like 2012’s Total Recall.  Despite the beauty of Kate Beckinsale in it, life is too precious and short for something of that immeasurable quality.  So here we are and there’s really no way […]

Dark Shadows Linger With Mixed Results

Dark Shadows is a movie that has everything it needs to be a lot of fun, but ends up being too hit or miss to fully succeed in the end.  The film has a great cast, some very impressive production values (fitting for a Tim Burton film), and an initial setup for a story that […]

A Nightmare on Elm Street (Blu-ray Review)

I’ve been a big fan of horror movies since I was kid, and I’m not picky about the type. I love zombies, werewolves, vampires, serial killers, creature features – you name it. Good horror movies, and bad – I usually love them all.  One thing I don’t have warm and fuzzy feelings about is the […]

Take the Ferry Over to Shutter Island

I said this before, but this time I mean it.  This may be the hardest movie review I have ever been tasked to write.  That’s not because the movie sucked, quite the contrary, but because I was left with so many questions in regards to what I had just watched.  And that’s a good thing!  […]
