Yours truly originally covered the first season of Westworld, also known as The Maze, on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray over here.  Truth be told it’s a very boring, but also thrilling watch at times.  Admittedly so I fell hard asleep the first time I attempted to watch the first episode of the second season during […]

Westworld Season One: The Maze (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Given the fact that when this series originally aired earlier this year I pretty much had to watch each episode twice due to many slow lulls that put me to sleep like a baby probably doesn’t make me the best suited reviewer to tackle Westworld: Season One. However, that doesn’t mean that I didn’t like […]

Hot on the heels of the original came the obvious sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire.  Since there’s, you know, multiple books in the series, anybody and everybody was expecting regardless of “how big” the first film would do.  With the sequel came a changing of the guard as Gary Ross stepped away from […]

All good things must come to an end and all Mockingjays must have their part 2.  And it all felt like it came and went so quickly.  Just a mere 3 and a half years following the first film, here we were with a fourth (extra film to be honest) and final chapter.  It was […]

Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fifth Season (Blu-ray Review)

Boardwalk Empire is the series that I always felt both audiences and HBO wanted more from.  Make no mistake, this Prohibition era-set crime drama, starring Steve Buscemi, was certainly a handsome production, with many fine performances, and a narrative that made some big turns throughout its 56-episode run, but I never felt like this would […]
