‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Is Like Christmas Morning As A Kid (Movie Review)

I have a new modern day definition of the word fun.  When I think of “fun” now I am reminded of the fantastic Thor: Ragnarok film trailers.  In a world full of so much seriousness, hate protests and whatnot it’s totally awesome to think how a two minute plus movie trailer can put a smile on […]

Red (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

We have a sorta fascination with older, aged action heroes nowadays without really knowing it. People have flocked to Liam Neeson movies and there seems to be some interest still there when Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger do a movie. Its come a long way since an aged Roger Moore was vine swinging in India […]

Comic-Con 2017: Marvel’s Hall H Panel

I’m a tad biased since I’m completely smitten by the DCEU movie universe as evident over here, but that doesn’t mean I have blinders on either.  Marvel’s Hall H Comic-Con panel may not have been as energetic, technology embracing or even as fun as the presentation put on by Warner Bros. that same day, but […]

The Movies That Got Away – How the Films We Missed Would’ve Changed Our Past Top 10’s

“There are only so many hours in the day.” That’s a statement we have all heard and probably even used ourselves. The same thing applies to movie watching and then some. There are only so many hours in a day and only so many movies we can get to in a year. Every year at […]

Dredd (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

One of the biggest cult films of the modern era has to be Lionsgate’s Dredd. The film surprised many and was well liked by those who saw it. It’s a comic and revival property that didn’t really take the world by storm though at the box office. It pretty much wound up breaking even at […]

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)

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 […]
