Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Three New Indie Titles

With recent back to back film fest coverage it’s been quite a task keeping up with the weekly indie releases (have no fear – quantity in smaller cinema will return to full force film fans!), so this week we’re hitting a couple missed flicks and one new one.  Unconventional childhood stories, tales of survival in […]

Dumb And Dumber To (Blu-ray Review)

One of my favorite comedies from the 1990s was Dumb And Dumber.  I laughed my tail off when I first saw the film in the theater.  Being a huge Jim Carrey fan since his In Living Color days, I was there opening weekend.  The film also introduced us to the Farrelly brothers who would rock […]

Top Ten: Aaron’s Most Disappointing Films & The Worst Of 2014

Never a post of joy, but every year does see the release of films that are not very good.  I never seek out films with the purpose of hating them and a majority of these are not without redeemable elements, but if I have at least 10 films on a list that I consider better […]

‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Too Much (Movie Review)

So I didn’t laugh all that much.  It is irritating to have to be on the defensive for an opinion of a film that really does not need critical weight to determine if someone wants to see it or not.  If I was not writing film reviews, I would have still no doubt seen Dumb […]

‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Takes Us Down To Many Familiar Rodes (Movie Review)

I honestly cannot believe it’s been twenty years since Dumb and Dumber almost made me piss my pants from laughter when I first saw it in the theater.  I still remember it like it was only yesterday.  My friend Bryan and I ventured out on opening night in Ohio to see this one theatrically and […]

Kick-Ass 2 Brings Out The Superhero In All Of Us (Movie Review)

The day is finally upon us.  A day that feels like it took forever to come.  Honestly, I was unsure if this day would ever happen, but the sequel to 2010’s Kick-Ass is finally here!!!  And it’s aptly named…Kick-Ass 2.  Well, let’s be honest.  They could have been a little more creative with that title, […]

‘Kick-Ass 2’ Not Quite As Hard Hitting (Movie Review)

Maybe one of the more unlikely comic properties to get a sequel, Kick-Ass was produced almost completely as an independent film, only to have its distribution rights bought and successfully turned into a big screen event.  Unfortunately, while the Comic Con and geek crowd showed up for Kick-Ass, the film did not turn into the […]

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (Blu-ray Review)

Magicians, or Illusionists, have sort of become a dying breed in modern times.  In the 80s and 90s they were a pretty big deal.  There were television specials, tours and merchandising.  Growing up, one of my favorite celebrities was David Copperfield.  I taped his television specials and went and saw him when his tour came […]

‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’: Illusionist Or One-Trick Pony? (Movie Review)

Here is a movie that has a promising premise that could have been better pulled off if it was either structured differently or came out a decade earlier. The idea of competing magicians in Las Vegas is a good one, but The Incredible Burt Wonderstone does not quite have a script to really pull off […]

I Love You Phillip Morris (Blu-ray Review)

I Love You Phillip Morris may be one of the most unconventional love stories of all time.  It could also be considered one of Jim Carrey’s most daring career moves of all time as well.  You know, with the whole “gay” stigma out there in the world,  a role like this taken by any other […]

‘I Love You Phillip Morris’ Is a Fun Time Away From Lockdown

To be very matter-of-fact, I Love You Phillip Morris is based on a true story about a gay con artist who managed to escape prison many times and also fell in love with one of his fellow inmates, Phillip Morris. Despite its seemingly unique premise and presence of Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor in lead roles, the film has been bouncing around for a couple years, trying to find a U.S. distributor.
