Oliver Stone Exposes ‘Snowden’ Pretty Plainly (Movie Review)

Putting acclaimed and occasionally controversial writer/director Oliver Stone behind the lens for a movie about Edward Snowden seemed like an intriguing proposition. It could be a film to take him out of the funk he’s been in for quite some time now. At 69 years of age, Stone’s intentions can certainly be interesting, but why […]

The Night Before (Blu-ray Review)

Here’s the holiday comedy that could have been a nice counter to the normal fall blockbusters. The Night Before tries really hard to be something fun and different, yet fit for the crowd that loved This Is The End and Neighbors. To its credit, there are some good laughs to be had, but it feels […]

‘The Walk’ Thrills With “High-Tension” Moments (Movie Review)

Ever since I saw the trailer for The Walk in IMAX at a screen of Mad Max: Fury Road I have been enthralled about seeing it.  The weird thing though is I hate heights.  However, I’m oddly drawn to that vertigo feeling seeing a film such as The Walk on a large IMAX screen can […]

Halloween: The Complete Collection – 10 Disc Edition (Blu-ray Review)

What seems to be little known is that there were actually two versions of Halloween: The Complete Collection back on September 23rd.  Most every bit of press and excitement wen toward the Deluxe Limited Edition that came with 15 discs.  And rightfully so.  There was another, more basic edition, released as well.  That one is […]

Welcome Back To The Cartoonishly Grim World Of ‘Sin City’ (Movie Review)

In 2005 I fell in love with Sin City.  While the worst thing that film may have given since us was the directional ambitions of the graphic novel’s creator Frank Miller (see don’t see: The Spirit), it had plenty else to offer.  Director Robert Rodriguez delivered an ambitious and visually stunning adaptation of a few books from the […]

Can you believe it was 9 years ago since we last saw Sin City on the big screen?  To be honest with you, I can’t believe that much time has gone by.  And now there’s an announcement that possibly a third film has been green lit.  All I can do is hope and pray that […]

Frank Miller’s ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ New 60 Second Trailer

I guess I’ll go on record by saying Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is probably one of my most anticipated flick’s of the year.  I don’t know whether it’s going to be good or bad, but what I have seen thus far has not disappointed me.  Quite the contrary!  All the footage I […]

Don Jon (Blu-ray Review)

I remembered when Don Jon rolled out theatrically this past September I was very nervous going in and partaking in it not because the trailers or television spots looked bad, but because they neglected to screen it for us members of the Austin press.  Usually, nine times out of ten, when there’s no screener that’s […]

Brian White’s Indisputable Heavyweight ‘Top 10 Films of 2013’

The calendar year of 2013 was a tough one for me in the film department.  However, unlike my recent Top 10 Blu-ray list over here, where I struggled to even find ten Blu-rays that I really really liked in 2013 (only leaving off Cloud Atlas), I find myself faced with a smorgasbord of films that […]

Don Jon Opens His Heart on Blu-ray This December

Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a handsome, good old-fashioned guy known as Don Jon for his ability to bed beautiful women at will. But ironically, even the finest fling doesn’t compare to the bliss Jon finds alone—watching porn on his computer.  Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a gorgeous, good old-fashioned girl raised on romantic movies, […]

Inspired by the true-life events confronting Abraham Lincoln and his monumental moral and political challenge to amend the United States Constitution to permanently abolish slavery, Lincoln is a rich and compelling historical and human drama that has been hailed as one of the best film of the year.

Looper (Blu-ray Review)

Although I’m a big Joseph Gordon-Levitt (JGL) fan and who can deny the charisma of Bruce Willis, I gotta say…I wasn’t really looking forward to this one back in September.  The trailers looked intriguing, but they never completely sold it and hooked me in.  But I thought…hey….why not?  If the movie’s terrible, there’s always going […]
