The Big Lebowski – 20th Anniversary Edition (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Two decades the Coen Bros followed their heavily acclaimed and Academy beloved film Fargo with the neo-noir comedy The Big Lebowski. The film straight up bombed and the critics didn’t see to care much for it either. Little did we all know, it would became what is probably the biggest cult film of the 1990s […]

10 Cloverfield Lane (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Once again I find myself not sure where to start about 10 Cloverfield Lane in this 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray review.  Do I talk about how much I love this film or do I explore the veil of secrecy it was literally made under?  I mean we all knew J.J. Abrams around this time was busy far, […]

Matinee – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Here’s a title that was both fitting of either the Shout! Factory branded line of Shout Select or Scream Factory: Joe Dante’s Matinee. Ultimately it went to that of the Shout Select line. A loving homage to the kitchy creature-features of the atomic age, the delightful comedy Matinee is a smart and sharp period comedy that captures of […]

Atomic Blonde (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Atomic Blonde finally sees the light of day on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray after debuting all the way back this past March at SXSW (originally covered here by Bron Anderson).  So other than a woman, Charlize Theron, kicking ass John Wick style, what’s it all about?  You’re in the right place to get that question […]

Comic-Con 2017: Charlize Theron & ‘Atomic Blonde’ (Movie Review)

I guess for the past couple of years now Entertainment Weekly has put on a Women Who Kick-Ass Panel at Comic-Con International.  This year’s panel featured a single woman, Charlize Theron, showcasing her most recent work Atomic Blonde, which dropped in theaters this week finally and her involvement in Fate of the Furious and one of […]

‘Atomic Blonde’ Is A Cool Killer With Too Much Filler (Movie Review)

Here’s an action film that I couldn’t help but be underwhelmed by, given its potential. Atomic Blonde features Charlize Theron as a top-level spy in an action movie from David Leitch, co-director of John Wick. The film oozes with style (neon glow and an 80s new wave soundtrack) and features an array of solid actors […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Six Studio Films Past, Present & Future

I’ve been away on a vacation these last couple of weeks so the indie factor has gotten a tad harder to keep up with (nobody does smaller films in volume like LA!), but I have seen some studio fare and wanted to share some cinematical views.  For this particular article I’m delving into big budget […]

Brian Takes A Vacation With Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets (Movie Review)

Make no mistake about it two of my most treasured 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray releases, The Fifth Element and Lucy, are Luc Besson movies.  Therefore, it should come as no surprise when I tell  how excited I am to finally have seen his newest body of work, the sci-fiction feature Valerian And The City Of […]

Kong: Skull Island (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I’m sorry but try as I might I’m just not a fan at all of 2014’s Godzilla reboot.  That’s not a slam to director Gareth Edwards because I love his work in Rogue One, but rather a multitude of things I felt were wrong with the effort.  I gave it many chances too as I even […]

Patriots Day (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

In 2016, director Peter Berg and star Mark Wahlberg teamed for a pair of action-oriented films base on real life big headline stories trying to display American heroism.  The first was Deepwater Horizon, focusing on the 2010 oil spill and the other was Patriots Day that was about the bombing  at the 2013 Boston Marathon and […]

Atomic Blonde (SXSW Review)

Where David Leitch’s first film, John Wick seemed to come out of nowhere, delight the senses, and spend time blending its style and substance into a heart-filled tale of revenge and bulletplay that continuously wows, his second film Atomic Blonde is highly anticipated, remains cool and distant, and heavily favors style to compensate for a […]

Welcome To ‘Kong’s Jungle (Movie Review)

Deep in the jungles of blockbuster cinema is a beast, or hero if you will, but he doesn’t wear a cape or much of anything. No, this hero simply stands 100 feet tall to fight off other monsters and delivers the kind of joy you want in a rip-roaring adventure that doesn’t forget to have […]

‘Patriots Day’ Skillfully Portrays A Successful Manhunt (Movie Review)

If Deepwater Horizon was a solid warm up for director Peter Berg earlier this year, then Patriots Day is the hit he was going for. Working to portray an intense, real life situation without exploiting it, Berg carefully balances tragedy with heroics spread through a variety of characters simply doing their job. Minus some final […]

Argo (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Ben Affleck’s directorial catalog has been nothing short of a perfect batting average.  Despite your thoughts on his films, none of them are terrible and at worst you can’t say any of them aren’t pretty damn entertaining.  There were no clumsy steps or learning curves, he started right out with some prestige.  His second film […]
