Pete’s Dragon (Blu-ray Review)

There were a lot of disappointments and film that tended to underwhelm many this summer at the movie theater.  A couple biggies happened to show up here and there that both hit big with the money and the critical success, but not a whole lot of them did much of both.  But then, there was […]

Star Trek Beyond (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Star Trek Beyond promises us one thing going in, a departure from J. J. Abrams’ direction.  It of course delivers more, but my main concern was what kind of adventure are we in store for?  For too long now I hear complaints from longtime Trekkies upset over the direction of the first two films.  Most notably, […]

Pete’s Dragon Is All Joy And Wonder Covered In Fur (Movie Review)

Following the success of The Jungle Book and Cinderella, Pete’s Dragon may not be the film people expected Disney to remake next.  Mistakenly seen by some as a classic, that 1977 film came and went with little regard, but co-writer/director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) has swooped in with a low-key character drama that […]

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Crashes In Third Place (Movie Review)

Star Trek Beyond promises us one thing going in, a departure from J. J.

Teamwork & Visuals Push ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Just Another Day In Space (Movie Review)

This new series of Star Trek films should ideally have been my gateway into getting a better feel for the series. The J.J. Abrams films were not without merit, but even with a changing of hands to director Justin Lin, I seem to still be largely unmoved by what this franchise has to offer. The […]

Star Trek Into Darkness (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I will kind of start this review by echoing what I said over here in my first 4K UHD review of Star Trek.  It was two months ago when Paramount Home Media Distribution announced that director J.J. Abrams’ global blockbusters Star Trek and the reason why we are all here, Star Trek Into Darkness, would […]

Walking With Dinosaurs: The Movie (Blu-ray Review)

Walking With Dinosaurs was a pretty big disappointment for Fox this past winter.  The $80 million budgeted film only took back $36 million in the United States.  When added, the overseas totals take it to $125.5 million overall.  But, Fox claims that the intake globally is still very lackluster.  The film featured computer generated dinosaurs […]

Open The Door, Get On The Floor, Everybody’s WALKING WITH DINOSAURS On Blu-ray March 25!

Walking With Dinosaurs was a release this Christmas that failed to catch on with audiences in the US.  Some might not have even heard of it.  This was a big project that opened with a whimper a midst all the Oscar buzzed film and popcorn flicks.  It did manage to recoup the budget overseas without […]

Star Trek Into Darkness (Blu-ray Review)

Being a huge Star Wars fan all my life, who has more times than I care to admit called Star Trek boring, dull and lifeless with the exception of The Next Generation episodes Ashley Judd breathes life and beauty into, I was astonished by how much fun I had with J.J. Abrams fresh take on […]

Abram’s worldwide sic-fi blockbuster, Star Trek Into Darkness, sets a course for Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and DVD September 10th.  I don’t know about you, but this is actually the first Star Trek release I’m really looking forward to owning!  2009’s entry was a step in the right direction, but this one just literally […]

Star Trek Into Indifference (Movie Review)

I have honestly not tried to make a big deal out of this more publicly, but my interest in Star Trek as a franchise is almost non-existent.  Do I respect what it has brought to the world?  Sure.  Do I enjoy the work of many involved in the making of this newest entry?  Of course.  […]

Dredd Is The Law, And He Brings Proper Judgment

For a movie that is about brutal violence and maintaining a dark and nihilistic tone throughout, Dredd sure was a pretty film.  This second attempt on a theatrical feature about the futuristic cop who serves as judge, jury, and executioner is an exercise in grit and violence, with just a hint of self-satire to keep […]
