Now You See Me 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Now You See Me 2 won’t get any points for originality in the title department.  There’s also the absence of one of the Fourth Horseman, Isla Fisher’s character, to explain.  However, what I was at least hoping for here was some fun magic, deception and illusion tricks.  That much the first film managed to provide.  […]

‘Now You See Me 2’ Brings More Magic Tricks And Shenanigans To The Table (Movie Review)

The core concept behind these Now You See Me films is making heist movies with magicians. That sounds incredibly fun to me and apparently many others, as the first film was a sleeper hit, paving the way for this sequel. Now You See Me 2 takes the ‘bigger is better’ route seen with most sequels […]

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Blu-ray Review)

Joe: The Rise of Cobra, aptly titled G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  Now I may be in the minority here, but I don’t feel […]

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Explodes onto Blu-ray – Officially This July!

I was so against this movie when I heard there was not going to be any sign of the Baroness or Scarlett.  They were the best parts of the first film, right?  Well reluctantly I dragged my sorry butt to the theater months ago on a rainy Sunday afternoon and well…I actually really liked what […]

‘G.I. Joe’ 2: Cobra Strikes Back! (Movie Review)

2009 saw the release of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.  While that film was a financial success and has its fans, it did not quite set the world on fire in the same way that Transformers, the other Hasbro toy-based movie franchise did.  The consensus seems to be that it was too campy for […]

Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (Blu-ray Review)

So this is an interesting situation to be in.  I feel like I am both in the best position to review the concert film/documentary about pop sensation Justin Bieber, as well as one who does not have any business to be doing so.  Similar to something like the ever-so-popular Twilight series, Justin Bieber is not […]

The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers: Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD Review)

I think there is something that is important to address in regards to this web series and the person involved in its creation – Jon M. Chu.  I am a fan of this writer/producer/director.  The name may not be familiar as of now to many, but I think he is quite talented when it comes […]
