Nocturnal Animals (Blu-ray Review)

Nocturnal Animals is a flick I knew nothing about prior to seeing theatrically last year.  I had never heard of it before so when the press screening invite arrived in my inbox it was very much a surprise to me.  I saw that Amy Adams was in it and decided to give the trailer a spin. […]

Brian White’s ‘Sin’sational TOP 10 Films of 2016

It’s that time of the year again, and I’m not referring to the expensive Holiday season.  I’m talking about the dreaded TOP 10 Favorite Films lists us reviewers annually face.  While some of us love putting these lists together others I know absolutely dread it.  It could be the notion of the extra work involved […]

‘Nocturnal Animals’ Show Its Stylish Teeth (Movie Review)

Writer/director/fashion designer Tom Ford has certainly proven he knows how to dress up a scene and his characters. Nocturnal Animals presents multiple scenarios, be it characters at home or in the middle of something out of a Cormac McCarthy novel, which feel lovingly crafted for one to observe every detail, as if reading an intense description from […]

Everest (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Make no mistake about it, Everest is not going to win any feel good movie-of-the-year awards on the new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format.  It’s a very cold and brutal experience to behold especially now that it’s crystal clear and more pronounced than ever on the new home media format.  The extra clarity of the […]

Demolition (DVD Review)

This past spring, Demolition came and went through theaters. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and is the latest from director Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club, Wild). Centering on a tragic story and the comedy and drama that comes out of it, the film involves a man who literally becomes a part of a self-destructive pattern […]

Everest (Blu-ray Review)

Generally speaking these types of survival films don’t really interest me.  But considering the amount of next level talent involved such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Keira Knightley, and Jason Clarke I figured that it might be worth checking out.  And I’m really glad that I did!  When I saw this movie in the theaters […]

Climb ‘Everest’ on Blu-ray This January!

I saw this one theatrically and it did not make me miss my hometown of Cleveland, OH one bit.  In fact, if I never saw snow again, I’d be alright.  With that being said this is a very cold movie.  Brr.  So here’s the deal.  Unbridled ambition, a ferocious storm, and the limits of human […]

Southpaw (Blu-ray Review)

Southpaw is defined in the sport of boxing as the stance where the boxer has his right hand and right foot forward, leading with right jabs, and following with a left cross right hook.  Southpaw is the normal stance for a left-handed boxer.  Fictional boxer Rocky Balboa, for example, was a southpaw.  Therefore, I think you can pretty much conjure up that Jake Gyllenhaal’s […]

Brandon’s Top 14 Films Of The Year That Was 2014

All right, its my turn.  Up front, there’s a few movies I didn’t get to.  I haven’t been able to get out and see Whiplash yet.  Selma and Inherent Vice don’t open here in my fair city until the year reads 2015.  In 2014, my little bundle of wonderful daughter was born, so like 2012 […]

TOP 10: Brian White’s Favorite Heavy Hitting Films of 2014

It’s that time of the year again.  My how time flies by, huh?  I generally hate this time of the year not because of the holidays, but because it means nothing but cold and deadness outside and in a reviewer’s world, the dreaded TOP 10 lists as well.  Ugh!  I’m not going to lie.  I […]

Beyond Fest 2014: Nightcrawler (Movie Review)

I find there to be a lot of beauty in Los Angeles at night.  It is a bit odd, as I find most films that portray LA primarily at night tend to be centered on crime.  Something about the way this city is illuminated by its street lights, cars, and various other forms of activity […]

Enemy (Blu-ray Review)

Last year, mainstream audiences were given the chance to check out Prisoners, a kidnapping drama from director Denis Villeneuve.  Many gave praise to Hugh Jackman taking his Wolverine rage and putting it into an average guy who just wanted to find his daughter.  I liked Jackman, but it was Jake Gyllenhaal’s turn as Det. Loki […]

Here’s a movie that I most regret missing, while it was in theaters.  From everything I have heard, Enemy will likely be a film I end up loving, but I just could not make any of the screening dates, or catch it while it was in theaters or on VOD.  Now I will have the […]
