Divergent / Insurgent / Allegiant (Blu-ray Reviews)

Being a Divergent virgin, when I was recently asked about covering the Blu-ray release of the third film in the series Allegiant (out on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on July 12 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment) my immediate thought was to pass.  How could I review the third installment when […]

‘Allegiant’ Fights Against Tired Ideas (Movie Review)

There is something to be said for the third film in a franchise (based on three books) that can essentially reboot itself with the same characters. While the Divergent series wasn’t over, Insurgent did leave things in a curious position. Now we are getting more answers, but while Allegiant may be an improvement over the […]

‘The Martian’ Cultivates A Rich Extraplanetary Film Experience (Movie Review)

The Martian is one of those rare moments where I went into the movie knowing full well what was going to happen.  No, I’m not clairvoyant.  I read the book written by Andy Weir.  However, what makes the headlines even more interesting besides me reading a book is the fact that Andy’s novel was first self […]

‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Too Much (Movie Review)

So I didn’t laugh all that much.  It is irritating to have to be on the defensive for an opinion of a film that really does not need critical weight to determine if someone wants to see it or not.  If I was not writing film reviews, I would have still no doubt seen Dumb […]

Looper (Blu-ray Review)

Although I’m a big Joseph Gordon-Levitt (JGL) fan and who can deny the charisma of Bruce Willis, I gotta say…I wasn’t really looking forward to this one back in September.  The trailers looked intriguing, but they never completely sold it and hooked me in.  But I thought…hey….why not?  If the movie’s terrible, there’s always going […]

‘Looper’ Bends Time And Breaks Convention

Time travel movies can often be tricky.  I am a big fan of films that attempt to utilize the subject, as I like to spend plenty of time thinking about the logic involved.  In many cases, regardless of how much fun or how good the film is, the logic is not really sound.  Some time […]
