I don’t mean to steal anyone’s thunder so please don’t think that of me here.  However, what I want to do is call attention to a quote on the cover of this 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Warrior.  I typically hate these unimaginative one-liners, but this one stands out to me because it’s more […]

It Comes At Night (Blu-ray Review)

When It Comes At Night released this past summer it was met with much approval upon the critical reviews. However, once those pesky general audiences got their hands on it, it was seen as all of a sudden being divisive and controversial. They hated it. Using the Tomato meter, the critics wound up giving it […]

Looking back through 2017’s Summer movie season, it is hard not to see it as a success.

SDCC 2017: Bright looks awesome

Bright was the panel I was honestly most interested in. From the moment it was announced, I’ve been following the production. Anything with director David Ayer has my interest. He’s an absolutely insane director, and when he’s not being held back by studio restrictions, he always delivers something that’s compelling and worth discussing after. I […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Three New Indie Titles

‘It Comes At Night’ And Brings Dread (Movie Review)

The use of space, darkness and an ominous red door are all great assets for It Comes at Night. This is the second film from director Trey Edward Shults, who arrived on the scene with 2015’s Krisha, another film dealing with family-related intensity. With It Comes at Night, that intensity is structured around a thriller […]

Loving (Blu-ray Review)

With Loving there comes a certain expectation that writer/director Jeff Nichols is not out to provide. The historical drama surrounds an event that led to the invalidation of state laws prohibiting interracial marriage. This seems like the typical kind of film to automatically receive awards consideration. Regardless of if it does or doesn’t, Nichols is […]

The Great Gatsby (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Before visiting The Great Gatsby theatrically, I strongly held the opinion that this was either going to be one of those films you’d love or you’d hate with absolutely no middle ground in the equation.  I know I found myself seriously conflicted in how I felt about it for months before I saw it.  The first trailer did […]

There’s something pretty cool about seeing an indie director with a knack for human drama take on a genre film. Okay, so that applies to almost any newbie director handed the keys to a franchise, but how about one who has developed the story himself and is allowed by a studio to make such a […]
