Short crop of indie features dissected below (covering those film festivals takes time folks!), but this week I’ve also included something extra.  So alongside a trio of flicks given their review due, there’s also a short film too to give the ardent movie lover a little more.  Docs on card jockeys, stories involving family turbulence […]

Underworld Blood Wars (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

It wasn’t until I completed my Christmas Eve review of Underworld on 4K Blu-ray (here) that I realized how hated the franchise was in my inner circle of confidants.  I felt like a minority for the first time in my life.  However, that’s not to say there aren’t fans out there because there totally are.  All you […]

‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ Sucks The Final Blood Out of the Franchise (Movie Review)

It wasn’t until I completed my Christmas Eve review of Underworld on 4K Blu-ray (here) that I realized how hated the franchise was in my inner circle of confidants.  I felt like a minority for the first time in my life.  However, that’s not to say there aren’t fans out there because there totally are.

Underworld (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Underworld is one of those films that I’ll never forget where in life I was when I saw it.  I’ll spare you the details, but I  remember that evening vividly as it was a good one.  It also came out at just the right time when the vampire craze was just ramping up and ironically was […]

Stonehearst Asylum (Blu-ray Review)

Call me crazy (no pun intended), but every time I look at the title of this film, its poster art and the fact that it stars Ben Kingsley, I just get Shutter Island on the brain.  Is that fair to typecast this film instantly like that?  I don’t think it is, but I can’t help the […]

Gerard’s Worst Films of 2012

This worst-of list will not be as long as my other Top 10 lists due to the fact that some films that were downright unwatchable weren’t even watched all the way through. I decided not to subject myself to them, so some of these selections will probably just get “honorable worst-of” mentions instead, or a […]

The Last Days of Disco: Criterion Collection (Blu-ray Review)

The Last Days of Disco, from director Whit Stillman, is a cleverly comic look at the early 1980’s Manhattan party scene from the vantage point of the late nineties. At the center of the film’s roundelay of revelers are the icy Charlotte (Kate Bekinsale) and the demure Alice (Chloe Sevigny), by day toiling as publishing […]

Total Recall (Movie Review)

Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be […]

Watching ‘Total Recall’ Makes Me Want To Forget (Movie Review)

Be as it may, I tried to sit down this past weekend and for the first time ever watch the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Total Recall.   Needless to say, I did not make it all the way through.  I know.  Boo!  I became extremely bored and restless half way through. Like my experience with Serenity, […]

‘Total Recall’ Has An Identity Crisis

Get your ass to…London?  It seemed like it would be easy to constantly compare this remake to Paul Verhoven’s excessive, but entertaining Arnold Schwarzeneggar sci-fi/action flick, Total Recall, but the film has lifted so many different elements from an assortment of other action and sci-fi films that comparing it to just one movie would not […]

Underworld: Awakening (Blu-ray Review)

The world needed another Underworld film, right?  Of course it did!  Don’t kid yourself for one single minute that Kate Beckinsale’s tight, formfitting black leather outfit doesn’t fill theater seats.  Of course it/she does!  And don’t fret!  Sony Pictures didn’t let us down.  Not by a long shot, in my opinion.  There’s plenty of Kate […]

UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING Rises on Blu-ray May 8th

Okay.  This one can go either way.  I know some people that hated this film and some people that loved it.  Put me down for pleasantly surprised.  I went into the theatrical screening of this one with very low expectations and I came out liking it.  Why?  Because it was a hot, skin tight black […]

‘Underworld 4’ a Rude Awakening (Movie Review)

I remember a handful of years back when word got out that a third Underworld movie was in production. Then word arrived that series star Kate Beckinsale would not be a part of the film. I, along with many other fans, felt the unfortunate sting. Thankfully, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans was a great-fitting prequel […]
