Arsenal (Blu-ray Review)

It sounds very silly to have expectations for or to be really looking forward to a film like Arsenal.  A primarily straight to Blu-ray and DVD (I think it played a couple festivals) release where the leads are Adrien Grenier and Johnathon Schaech.  And John Cusack, has been less of the kicker than ever in […]

Cronenberg Draws Up Satirical ‘Maps To The Stars’ (Movie Review)

Leave it to director David Cronenberg (The Fly, A History of Violence) to spend decades making studio films outside of Hollywood, only to finally shoot a film in Hollywood that looks to take it down.  Of course, it would help if this acerbic, satirical take on Hollywood culture was a little more attuned to the […]

Top 20: Aaron’s Odds & Ends of 2014

I enjoy putting together different year end lists, as they tend to function as a way for me to put emphasis on a lot of film that I would hope people check out at some point (or avoid, in the case of the ‘Worst of’ list).  This year, given how I have ranked a large […]

Reclaim (Blu-ray Review)

Reclaim, which stars Ryan Phillipe, Rachelle Lefevre and John Cusack, was primarily a Video OnDemand release back in September.  It did see release in a very limited fashion theatrically.  This is the second film of this kind of ilk that I’ve caught to review recently that had John Cusack.  The other was The Prince, which […]

The Prince (Blu-ray Review)

The Prince is brought to us from producers behind last year’s films Lone Survivor and Escape Plan.  That’s a weird balance as I really enjoyed one of those quite a bit and sort of despised the other.  And if you want a clue as to which, lets just say its the one that wasn’t based […]

Grand Piano (Blu-ray Review)

It’s funny how film genres, trends, styles and such tend to come and go.  A film like Grand Piano would have possibly or even likely been an A-List title in the 90s.  It definitely would have been tops in the Hitchcock era of thrillers as well.  Now, this high concept thriller film is best suited […]
