BOOOO! Brandon’s Top 10 Modern Horror Remakes

Take the “Booo!” in the title as either the ghostly scare sound or the hoards of fanboys’ reactions when something gets remade.  Over the last 15 years or so we’ve seen plenty of reboots, reimaginings and remakes come to fruition throughout each film going year.  The horror genre has certainly been the genre the most […]

Hitchcock (Blu-ray Review)

The idea of a movie revolving around the making of Psycho is certainly an intriguing one, made better by the fantastic cast that was involved, with a wonderful looking Anthony Hopkins in the guise of the Master of Suspense.  That is not exactly what I got, but what I liked about this movie, is how […]

Dial H For ‘Hitchcock’ (Movie Review)

Among the people that I would offhand list as my favorite directors, Alfred Hitchcock would be one of them.  The movie I regard as my favorite horror movie (let alone a favorite movie of mine in general) is Psycho.  The idea of a movie revolving around the making of Psycho is certainly an intriguing one, […]

For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be […]

Watching ‘Total Recall’ Makes Me Want To Forget (Movie Review)

Be as it may, I tried to sit down this past weekend and for the first time ever watch the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Total Recall.   Needless to say, I did not make it all the way through.  I know.  Boo!  I became extremely bored and restless half way through. Like my experience with Serenity, […]

‘Total Recall’ Has An Identity Crisis

Get your ass to…London?  It seemed like it would be easy to constantly compare this remake to Paul Verhoven’s excessive, but entertaining Arnold Schwarzeneggar sci-fi/action flick, Total Recall, but the film has lifted so many different elements from an assortment of other action and sci-fi films that comparing it to just one movie would not […]

The A-Team (Blu-ray Review)

Seeing the trailers for The A-Team earlier this year filled me with dread.  It looked like another treasured television show from the 80’s was to be transformed into an atrocious full feature film.  All of that changed after I saw a new trailer for The A-Team in front of the Predators blu-ray.  It actually looked […]

Though it underperformed in American theaters, here’s hoping the public doesn’t miss the boat again when A-Team comes out on Blu-ray this December.  The film brought together a few of Hollywood’s heavy hitters along with some new arrivals as director Joe Carnahan entertainingly modernized the 80’s television series into a 2010 action movie.  The film […]

The Illusionist (Blu-ray Review)

I’ve always loved movies about magic so I was looking forward to reviewing The Illusionist which I missed in the theaters.  I remember this movie came out around the same time as The Prestige so there were dueling magician movies just like volcano, Wyatt Earp and asteroid movies, which usually ends with the first movie […]

Grade A for The A-Team

Love or hate the 80’s, it became a pop culture mecca, spitting out one frame of success after another.  As a kid, the The A-Team was one of my favorite television shows.  I didn’t know anything about melding as a group back then or what good acting or bad acting was.  I did know that […]

Valentine’s Day (Blu-ray Review)

What can be more indicative of a romantic comedy than the title of Valentine’s Day?  Sure it’s sappy, and sure it’s formulaic as hell, but I just can’t shake the minority feeling that when I say compared to the handful of lackluster films I have seen theatrically these first five months of 2010, Valentine’s Day […]
