Suicide Squad (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Suicide Squad is one of those movies where you just have to get that first screening under your belt.  It’s like being on a Southwest Airlines airplane.  You know how you hear that ding and the captain says you’re now free to move around the cabin?  It’s sort of the same principle with David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.  […]

Suicide Squad Saves The World With Disappointment (Movie Review)

Suicide Squad needs no further word of mouth to market this one.  Warner Bros. made plenty sure of that with all the various trailers and TV spots.  Heck, Margot Robbie is practically the poster child of this one.  Who needs the Joker and Batman?  She sells the film herself as Harley Quinn, but seriously.  The […]

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 […]

RoboCop – 2014 (Blu-ray Review)

It’s the reboot that seemed an interesting but dangerous venture.  The original Paul Verhoven classic is damn near as perfect a movie as you can get.  As unnecessary as the reboot sounded, interesting names kept popping into it.  At the outset, this was a Darren Aronofsky project, but he exited.  Even the eventual director Jose […]

‘Robocop’ Fails Its Prime Directive (Movie Review)

There is a reason why robots, cyborgs, and similar devices have gotten a lot of attention in science fiction over the years.  The idea of man creating a machine and what that could mean for life is an intriguing concept that can play on both the positives and negatives of the scenario.  Taking it further […]

Good Cop, Bad Cop(s), Robocop (Movie Review)

Going into this screening last night I was fearful of only one thing.  Please God!  Don’t let this be a horrible remake like 2012’s Total Recall.  Despite the beauty of Kate Beckinsale in it, life is too precious and short for something of that immeasurable quality.  So here we are and there’s really no way […]

Lola Versus (Blu-ray Review)

It can be stated as an “art house romantic comedy,” but it is still a regular romantic comedy.  Lola Versus may play out in its own sort of way, but it very much follows a lot of the same patterns that these types of films tend to have.  That does not make it bad, as […]
