The Frustrating Glow Of ‘Wonder Wheel’ (Movie Review)

I’ve had a tough time processing Wonder Wheel. It has nothing to do with writer/director Woody Allen as a person or even the idea of analyzing multiple “awards season” movies at the same time. It has a lot more to do with the familiarity of Allen’s ideas matched to his choices as a visual filmmaker. […]

Trolls (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Ahhh, the treasure trolls.  They’ve been around forever.  Everyone grew up with one, knows what they are, sold a lot of items based on different colors of hair.  Popular damn things.  Are they still?  Not sure.  However, wow, it has taken a REALLY long time for them to get a movie off the ground, right?

‘Trolls’ Sparkles And Glitters Its Way Through A Stock Animated Adventure (Movie Review)

Sometimes it is necessary to expect a level entertainment that simply does not work for you. Trolls is essentially fine in providing an assortment of colors and music to keep its intended audience (younglings) thrilled for a majority of the screentime. There is a message at its core, the voice actors all seem game, the […]

Inside Llewyn Davis (Criterion Collection)

So few directors can infuse the story of a struggling, down on his luck musician with so much unapologetic dark humor and persistent optimism. The Coen Brothers achieve just that with Inside Llewyn Davis. Oscar Isaac delivers an incredibly stirring performance, delivering deep soulful ballads that will leave the viewer entranced. Living a squanderous life of some […]

INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS arrives on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital This March

One of my favorite films of 2013 and another great film from Joel and Ethan Coen, Inside Llewyn Davis is a fantastic film about the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961.  That premise may not automatically interest everyone, but the joy of a Coen brothers film is the way they find ways to make brilliant films […]

Runner Runner (Blu-ray Review)

I remember when this film first came out.  I never heard of it until a few months before it’s release date.  I thought that was odd.  Then a star’s name in the billing credits caught my eye and that’s all it took.  I didn’t care anymore as to how this film managed to sneak under […]

Brandon’s Rendition Of The Top 10 Films Of 2013

It started off kind of weak and had a slightly mediocre summer (for mainstream movies), but overall 2013 was a really great year for movies.  I say that because this Top 10 list was an incredibly difficult task to put together.  One of the most challenging things every year is we are so hyped up […]

Hold Onto Your Potatoes…Laney Loves Her Time ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ (Movie Review)

Once again and without disappointment, the Coen brothers showcase their talent for delivering an impeccably honest journey of life affirmation as told by Inside Llewyn Davis. Just as important, and equally as impressive, is T Bone Burnett’s contribution to the soundtrack. The film travels the same avenue as O Brother, Where Art Thou in that […]

‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ There Is A Man, A Guitar, And A Cat (Movie Review)

At times it can be hard to elaborate on why regard can be put so high on certain films.  Without tip-toeing around it, I think Inside Llewyn Davis is an incredibly well-made, well-acted, fantastically strange film that receives the highest rating from me, because I do not know what could be made different to have […]

‘Runner Runner’ Chicken Blunder (Movie Review)

Runner Runner is the kind of trashy B-movie that doesn’t aspires to build a whole lot of expectation for the viewer.  It simply wants to be seen as watchable.  The film is harmless in what it presents, but it is a shame that no one really seems to care how effective this film turned out […]

Gemma, Gemma! Err…I Mean ‘Runner, Runner’ (Movie Review)

Up until a few months ago, I never heard of this film.  Then a star’s name in the billing credits caught my eye and that’s all it took.  Hook…line…and sinker!  Yeah, baby!  That’s right!  My Gemma’s in the house again and it’s time to get this party started!  So needless to say when I received […]

Grumpy Old Clint Finds ‘Trouble With The Curve’

So Clint Eastwood has returned to the big screen for a movie that does not require a whole lot of effort from him.  Trouble with the Curve is a fairly slight film about a number of old American chestnuts, such as baseball, getting older, trusting your instincts, and the father-daughter relationship.  It is not necessarily […]
