Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

One of the biggest surprises for summer 2003 was the original Pirates of the Caribbean film. There was a lot of goodwill with that movie and its sequels that would form a trilogy were very highly anticipated. Then came that fourth one, whatever you want to call it. I’m still a big fan of the […]

The Vague Dramatic Expression That Is ‘Collateral Beauty’ (Movie Review)

It’s strange how Collateral Beauty is almost a novel idea for a film. Somehow packing a bunch of talented actors into a film set during the December holiday season that isn’t a comedy has become a rare commodity. The film is a straight drama that holds its sincerity close to its heart, even if that […]

Everest (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Make no mistake about it, Everest is not going to win any feel good movie-of-the-year awards on the new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format.  It’s a very cold and brutal experience to behold especially now that it’s crystal clear and more pronounced than ever on the new home media format.  The extra clarity of the […]

Everest (Blu-ray Review)

Generally speaking these types of survival films don’t really interest me.  But considering the amount of next level talent involved such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Keira Knightley, and Jason Clarke I figured that it might be worth checking out.  And I’m really glad that I did!  When I saw this movie in the theaters […]

Climb ‘Everest’ on Blu-ray This January!

I saw this one theatrically and it did not make me miss my hometown of Cleveland, OH one bit.  In fact, if I never saw snow again, I’d be alright.  With that being said this is a very cold movie.  Brr.  So here’s the deal.  Unbridled ambition, a ferocious storm, and the limits of human […]

Laggies (Blu-ray Review)

Laggies is a mix of typical rom-com material with typical coming-of-age story material fit inside of the shell of an indie comedy.  However, this ‘indie’ effort from director Lynn Shelton has far more mainstream appeal than her previous features, Humpday and Your Sister’s Sister, given the presence of big Hollywood actors Keira Knightley, Chloe Grace […]

‘The Imitation Game’ Is An Entertaining One (Movie Review)

I am a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch.  I even like to refer to him by his full name, Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch, because I enjoy celebrating just how British he is.  It is clear to me that I am not alone in my appreciation for BTCC, but I do enjoy that it is coming from […]

Begin Again (Blu-ray Review)

Back in 2oo6, I was a big big fan of the sort of musical film Once.  Love the movie, loved the soundtrack even more.  It was a daring film, because above all else, that music had to be excellent in order for the film to truly work, and it did.  Then, it wound up winning […]

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (Blu-ray Review)

I’ve always been a pretty solid fan of the Jack Ryan franchise.  The first one I saw was Clear And Present Danger, where some friends and I just randomly went to a movie on an afternoon and saw it.  It was like my first super adult type movie I think I saw in the theater […]
