Short crop of indie features dissected below (covering those film festivals takes time folks!), but this week I’ve also included something extra.  So alongside a trio of flicks given their review due, there’s also a short film too to give the ardent movie lover a little more.  Docs on card jockeys, stories involving family turbulence […]

The Year of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” Continues In Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Movie Review)

First there was Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass in 2010 and then there was Kingsman: The Secret Service (Aaron Neuwirth’s review of it all here and mine) in 2014.  Needless to say I’m a big fan of both.   Now we have a September 22nd sequel titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  This is one film I can’t say […]

Kingsman Royale (Movie Review)

2015’s Kingsman: The Secret Service was a sleeper hit that reveled in being a Roger Moore-era Bond flick wrapped in modern sensibilities and kinetic, R-rated violence. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is less successful because it feels more like an attempt to hold onto what emotional strengths worked the first time around. Perhaps if this movie […]

SDCC 2017: Kingsman The Golden Circle

An Archer-Kingsman crossover was something that never really crossed my mind, but it makes perfect sense, especially after seeing it in action. The opening clip began with Eggsy running on rooftops and leaping from building to building, only it was in animated form. Very similar to the style of Archer. Eggsy finally arrives at Kingsman, but […]

Gregg’s Best and Worst Films of 2016

It was certainly a turbulent year in the entertainment business as 2016 saw the passing of numerous stars. Bowie left us, then Alan Rickman and the list went on with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds passing just days apart. While they have moved on to whatever the next stage may bring, we will always have […]

Aaron’s Terrific Top Ten Films of 2016

The end of 2016 means an end to another year of great cinema. I had a tough time putting together this final list of films, as there was a strong selection to go through. Having watched over 175 films theatrically this year, it was fun to narrow things down to a final list of ten […]

Top 10 Films Of 2016: A Brandon Peters Story

As always when I do these “Best” lists, I ask two things of you, the reader.  Take the words best or top and replace it with “favorite”.  And importantly, number or ranking doesn’t matter, what is included does.  2016 was an interesting year for me, in that I feel a hair underqualified, but still, this […]

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 […]

Hell Or High Water (Blu-ray Review)

The neo-western has been an interesting genre to keep an eye on. Many of these films take the staples of classic westerns, but are heavily informed by so much that has come before. Brilliant films such as No Country For Old Men or (a personal favorite) The Way of the Gun even get away with […]

Seventh Son Is An Epic Mess (Movie Review)

Seventh Son is a mess of familiar ideas, talented actors, and competent (but mostly ugly) visual effects; all brought together into one horrible movie.  There are various ways to approach a review for a movie like this, most of which involve making fun of it, and honestly, this is the kind of movie that has […]

Received Lightweight Entertainment From ‘The Giver’ (Movie Review)

The Giver is the story of a young hero living in a futuristic society where a governing system has seemingly made everything perfect and free of chaos, with ruminating thoughts on possible corruption lurking just beneath the surface.  This seems like an interesting idea, were one not to realize how often it seems to come […]
