Dark Phoenix Soars Above My Low Expectations (Movie Review)

Dark Phoenix, the end of Fox’s X-Men franchise, can’t come and go quick enough in my opinion.  The longevity of Fox’s X-Men pictures produced some outstanding entries like Logan, The Wolverine, Day’s of Future Past, First Class and the very first two releases.  However, it also produced some serious stinkers like the third one (Last […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Six New Indie Titles

A half-dozen Indie outings up for critical dissection this week, some new, some not so new (got swamped with flicks from BHFF 2018 last week – but I’m catching up!), but all get their movie review day in the sun.  Tales of love found and lost, inheriting a family, the effective of a passionate woman, […]

Atomic Blonde (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Atomic Blonde finally sees the light of day on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray after debuting all the way back this past March at SXSW (originally covered here by Bron Anderson).  So other than a woman, Charlize Theron, kicking ass John Wick style, what’s it all about?  You’re in the right place to get that question […]

Comic-Con 2017: Charlize Theron & ‘Atomic Blonde’ (Movie Review)

I guess for the past couple of years now Entertainment Weekly has put on a Women Who Kick-Ass Panel at Comic-Con International.  This year’s panel featured a single woman, Charlize Theron, showcasing her most recent work Atomic Blonde, which dropped in theaters this week finally and her involvement in Fate of the Furious and one of […]

‘Atomic Blonde’ Is A Cool Killer With Too Much Filler (Movie Review)

Here’s an action film that I couldn’t help but be underwhelmed by, given its potential. Atomic Blonde features Charlize Theron as a top-level spy in an action movie from David Leitch, co-director of John Wick. The film oozes with style (neon glow and an 80s new wave soundtrack) and features an array of solid actors […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Six Studio Films Past, Present & Future

I’ve been away on a vacation these last couple of weeks so the indie factor has gotten a tad harder to keep up with (nobody does smaller films in volume like LA!), but I have seen some studio fare and wanted to share some cinematical views.  For this particular article I’m delving into big budget […]

Atomic Blonde (SXSW Review)

Where David Leitch’s first film, John Wick seemed to come out of nowhere, delight the senses, and spend time blending its style and substance into a heart-filled tale of revenge and bulletplay that continuously wows, his second film Atomic Blonde is highly anticipated, remains cool and distant, and heavily favors style to compensate for a […]

AFI Fest 2016: Split (Movie Review)

It is irritating to see a filmmaker get close to putting something great out there, but still be ultimately undone by script issues. Split has the makings of a very clever and tense psychological thriller. A terrific turn from star James McAvoy certainly deserves plenty of praise. Still, for every new layer and reveal, there […]

X-Men: Apocalypse (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

X-Men (along with Blade) is credited with giving launch to the 2nd wave of comic book superhero movies.  Its also, cleverly, still going along within its own continuity.  Two years ago, Bryan Singer returned to the franchise he gave life with the fun and exciting Days Of Future Past.  That film melded together the original […]

X-Men: First Class (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I have to admit, even with the ridiculous latest entry in the family, X-Men: Apocalypse, I’m ecstatic to be tackling X-Men: First Class here.  Ask me why.  I dare you!  Well, since you asked, I suppose the only nice thing to do would be to divulge.  I’m “ultra” excited for this one simply because ever since they […]

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Is A Bland Look At The End Of The World (Movie Review)

Imagine a rich comic universe with plenty of potential to be found in simply taking a piece of it, rather than cramming so much into one feature film. That has been the struggle of X-Men films over the years and while some have managed to balance this assemblage of characters better than others, there is […]

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE – The NEW and FINAL Trailer Released!

20th Century Fox has released a brand NEW and I am told FINAL trailer for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE! The story of the film goes a little something like this.  As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men […]

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (Blu-ray Review)

Reviewing The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby on Blu-ray makes for a somewhat difficult situation, because there are two versions of this film (thankfully both available on this release).  The first has something of a subtitle known as “Them”.  This version takes the story of a married couple that separates and follows both of their lives […]
