AFI Fest 2016: Miss Sloane (Movie Review)

Miss Sloane is the kind of film that can be championed, but called into question at the same time. On the whole, the film is a well-acted political drama that leans heavy on some pulp qualities. The film does away with overt statements arguing for specific causes, with the exception of calling out accountability and […]

The Huntsman: Winter’s War (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Who out there was a fan of Snow White and the Huntsman?  I have to admit, I initially was going into the theatrical screening.  It looked dark and broody and I was looking forward to seeing Charlize Theron as the evil queen of the famous fairy tale “Snow White.”  However, I just don’t know.  In […]

‘The Huntsman’ Tells The Fantasy Tale You Never Wanted (Movie Review)

The worst fears have been realized, as The Huntsman: Winter’s War is The Return of Jafar of big studio fairy tale movies. Armed with a $115 million budget, this attempt at a spin-off/prequel/sequel fails miserably in its attempt to have any more worth than a direct-to-video sequel that no one expects much from. It would […]

Crimson Peak Haunts With Lavish Production Design (Movie Review)

It doesn’t take long to put two and two together when watching the trailers for Crimson Peak.  The onscreen visuals scream unmistakably of Guillermo del Toro.  So much so that I couldn’t see anybody else directing this one, neither could Universal according to the history of this production.  At least Johnny Depp isn’t in this […]

‘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 […]

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (Blu-ray Review)

Reviewing The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby on Blu-ray makes for a somewhat difficult situation, because there are two versions of this film (thankfully both available on this release).  The first has something of a subtitle known as “Them”.  This version takes the story of a married couple that separates and follows both of their lives […]
