Baby Driver “Excel”erates From Start to Glorious Finish (Movie Review)

Okay so I’m very much late to this Baby Driver party.  Sue me.  I rectified that problem today once and for all.  When our staff’s Top 5 of the year thus far in 2017 posted here yesterday I realized something.  Pretty much everyone had Baby Driver on their lists (two even had it as their top […]

‘Baby Driver’ And The Beats (Movie Review)

There was really no world where I wasn’t going to enjoy Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver. As a filmmaker, Wright speaks a cinematic language that I quickly picked up back with Spaced and Shaun of the Dead. Like his other films, Baby Driver takes a central concept, strips other movies for parts, and builds a Frankenstein […]

Baby Driver (SXSW Review)

Baby Driver stands out as a truly unique cinematic experience. One that pretty much could only be brought to life by its director, Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim Vs The World). The gentleman known for films with superb editing with inventive and fluid scene transitions and a liberal use of music appears to have outdone himself […]

Forgotten Friday Flick – “Glengarry Glen Ross”

The current theme of stage to screen provides a vast amount of cinematic selections so let’s get back at it with a biting flick that proudly sports saucy slang and pitch perfect performances – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!  Today we’re heading back into David Mamet (we’ve already explored House of Games film fans!) land […]

‘Elvis & Nixon’ And The Delightful Badge Quest (Movie Review)

Casting really is everything sometimes. Whether playing an original creation or a fictional character, getting the right actor in the role will lead to an ultimate response from the audiences watching. I’m not sure Michael Shannon would have ever crossed my mind when it comes to casting Elvis Presley, but along with a game Kevin […]

Horrible Bosses 2 (Blu-ray Review)

We have all had our share of “horrible bosses” haven’t we?  Maybe we don’t care to admit it, but I believe I’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t have at least own horrible boss story.  Let’s look at example from a chapter in my own life.  In my current position and prior place of […]

Working Girl (Blu-ray Review)

Truth be told, I had never seen Working Girl before.  However, one look at the Blu-ray’s cover is all it took for me to get that warm and fuzzy feeling that I was about to watch something special simply because of the very young now everyday household names on it.  And after coming off an Alien binge […]

Margin Call (Blu-ray Review)

While watching Margin Call, a movie that I overall enjoyed, mainly due to the ensemble cast, I felt like wishing I could appreciate it more, given the subject matter.  It is based around the events leading up to the start of the 2007-2008 financial crisis and feels like a film that could be easily watched […]

Horrible Bosses (Blu-ray Review)

We have all had our share of “horrible bosses” at one point or another during our career, haven’t we?   Well I guess I should probably be addressing the 30-something year old crowd like myself, but I truly think this topic transcends the ages, if you ask me.  Don’t pretend like you don’t know what I’m […]

‘Horrible Bosses’, Great Cast, Funny Movie

It has been a solid year so far for original, R-rated comedies.  While not every film has been a homerun, I do enjoy the fact that we are being treated to a lot of good, raunchy fun, as opposed to watered-down versions of films followed by the inevitable “unrated” edition 3-4 months later.  Horrible Bosses […]

And You Thought You Had a “Horrible Boss”

We have all had “horrible bosses” at one point or another during our career, haven’t we?   Well I guess I should probably be addressing the 30-something year old crowd, but I truly think this topic transcends the ages, if you ask me.  And why wouldn’t you?   I’m kind of the authority around here, am I […]

The Usual Suspects (Blu-ray Review)

The Usual Suspects was released May 10th as a Blu-ray Book. I haven’t yet made up my mind about this new case, which is basically a book with a slot in the back to stick the Blu-ray disc in. As our movies shelves are beyond capacity I like the idea that these digibooks are thinner […]

Casino Jack (Blu-ray Review)

Casino Jack was a 2010 film that may have had a chance to bring some more good graces to the already very accomplished Kevin Spacey.  His portrayal of lobbyist Jack Abramoff was a very good turn that played well off of his talents as an actor.  The film ended up being largely dismissed; however, I […]
