The Night Of (Blu-ray Review)

Vanity Fair called HBO’s limited series, The Night Of, “The best TV you’ll see this summer.”  Who am I to argue with that claim?  I learned about the show from all the buzz it was experiencing online before the series even premiered.  Because of its early release online I made my girlfriend watch it with […]

‘Exodus’ Commands Visual Grandeur, But Is Plagued By A Lack Of Emotion (Movie Review)

Exodus: Gods and Kings is an epic.  There is no way around that.  Regardless of my thoughts on the film as a whole, director Ridley Scott has made a film that is grand in scale, fully realized in its depiction of an ancient time, and littered with extras, sets, props, and obvious visual effects in […]

Fading Gigolo (Blu-ray Review)

It can be interesting to watch veteran actors continue to try their hand at directing.  Fading Gigolo is John Turturro’s fifth effort as a director and while he builds a very non-flashy film out of a fairly silly premise, it is not without merits.  While the film owes a lot to one of its main […]

Fed up with crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill (Clooney) busts loose…except that he’s still shackled to two misfits from his chain gang: bad tempered Pete (Turturro) and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelsen).  With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain, the three embark on […]

Rounders (Blu-ray Review)

Wow, looks like it’s time to party like it’s 1999, I mean 1998, up in here!  Time really flies when you’re having fun.  It seems like yesterday when I was watching these two up-and-comers tackle the screen with an industry veteran.  The newbies were Matt Damon and some kid named Edward Norton.  The veteran was […]

Transformers 3: Boom Boom Bay

Throughout time, as far as Autobots are concerned, it has always been important to fight for what is right.  I think Michael Bay believes in what is right, I really do.  His more is more approach has proven to be poison from a critical standpoint, but I truly believe that he enjoys being able to […]

‘Cars 2’: Cruise Control

Last year I made the incorrect assumption of thinking Toy Story 3 would be Pixar’s way of easing back into simple comedy territory, after delving into more complex emotional territory with Up and Wall-E.  I was wrong, as Toy Story 3 not only turned out to be a powerhouse adventure/comedy, it also managed to pack […]
