The BFG (Blu-ray Review)

The BFG, a big time collaborative effort to bring Roald Dahl’s classic story to the big screen in live action form seems like it would be a big deal, but maybe it was just past the time for excitement.  Maybe its not something for this current generation.  Its got a lot going for it with […]

Rio 2 (Blu-ray Review)

All I knew about the first Rio going into this was that it was the film that topped the box office the weekend Scream 4 was released.  It was a huge hit, taking almost half a billion dollars worldwide.  In order to properly review Rio 2, I had to watch Rio before this and wow…I’m […]

In Men in Black III, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time.  J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner.  But when K’s life and the fate of the […]
