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 […]

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

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 […]

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

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 […]

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Following in the footsteps of its contemporaries, Harry Potter and Edward Cullen, Katniss Everdeen had the final book in her series split into to.  For the fans of the novel, it brought some head scratching, that of the three books, Mockingjay would get split and not one that could have been more detailed in Catching […]

The Neon Demon (Blu-ray Review)

Nicolas Winding Refn is one of the most visionary and abstract directors we have in the current mold.  He’s a filmmaker whose films will probably age a lot better in critical circles than they are received in present day.  They polarize and split audiences.  His films feature an equal amount of boos and standing ovations […]

Inherent Vice (Blu-ray Review)

Former flames, big time real estate moguls, something called the Golden Fang, and of course, lots of drugs; it looks like Doc might be getting in over his head.  Following There Will Be Blood and The Master it is nice to see writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson lighten up with Inherent Vice, an adaptation of Thomas […]

Since the film’s theatrical release, it has been very interesting to hear everyone’s thoughts on Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.  I have people in my life that very much opposed the film, going as far to say its subject matter is an abomination of the screenplay format, and others like me who can’t wait to view […]

‘Sucker Punch’ Aims High, But Is Really A Low Blow

So this movie was a big sandbox of ideas, ambition, and disappointment.  In terms of editing, style, and structure, watching Sucker Punch was like watching a day’s worth of programming on MTV, crammed into a long, two hour movie.  It begins early with a couple music videos; it then gives us shallow, underdeveloped, yet beautiful […]

Comic-Con 2010: Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch, the title of Watchmen‘s Zack Snyder’s newest upcoming film, was a surprise hit in my Comic-Con 2010 itinerary diary.  I immensely enjoyed the trailer, which was played two times for us.  It looked like a cross between a mythical/fantasy adventure and 300, with women in the starring role.  And what would Sucker Punch […]
