‘Despicable Me 3’ Finds The Right Zany Balance (Movie Review)

I’ve been somewhat harsh on Illumination Entertainment over the years. With no real affinity for minions, in particular, it’s been hard to jive with their Looney Tunes-inspired antics. It’s a shame, as I like the premise for the first Despicable Me and really would have liked to have taken to it. Well, perhaps I’ve been […]

Sausage Party (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Sausage Party, which sort of made its premiere at SXSW this year, is one film I purposely missed out on theatrically this year.  I know I’m not alone in my way of thinking.  The overall consensus is very split on this one too.  Either people seem to love it or others outright hate it like […]

Ghostbusters: Answer The Call (4K UHD, 3D & Blu-ray Review)

Back in the days I used to fashion myself as a pretty big Ghostbusters fan.  I lost count how many times I seen the original back in the 80’s, but I can honestly attest to only seeing the second film once.  We all know how bad that film is so I won’t even go there.  Needless to […]

Don’t Slime Me, ‘Ghostbusters’ Is A Fun Update (Movie Review)

The prospect of putting together a new Ghostbusters is a daunting one, yet an interesting challenge. While the 1984 fantasy-comedy is regarded by many (including myself) as a classic, the concept of a group of scientists in the business of catching ghosts opens up a world of possibilities. Despite the many people (including the original […]

Ghostbusters Mildly Pleases, But The Credits Thrill (Movie Review)

‘Zoolander 2’ Doubles Down On The Dumb (Movie Review)

Another year, another sequel to a cult-favorite comedy. 15 years after Zoolander served as a light and silly comedy to help people laugh again, following the 9/11 tragedy that occurred weeks earlier, we now have Zoolander 2, which is severely lacking in laughs. The film is full of cameos and gags, but the idea of […]

‘The Martian’ Cultivates A Rich Extraplanetary Film Experience (Movie Review)

The Martian is one of those rare moments where I went into the movie knowing full well what was going to happen.  No, I’m not clairvoyant.  I read the book written by Andy Weir.  However, what makes the headlines even more interesting besides me reading a book is the fact that Andy’s novel was first self […]

The Skeleton Twins (Blu-ray Review)

The Skeleton Twins is the kind of film that features a few actors giving the kind of performances that make it look easy.  Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig are best known for their work on Saturday Night Live, but clearly have aspirations to delve into more dramatic work, better showing off their range as performers.  It is […]

‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ Take You To The Theater Immediately (Movie Review)

It is amazing how things work sometimes. How To Train Your Dragon gets credit for being a sleeper success, as many were not thrilled by the marketing, but it ended up making big bucks and spawning a whole franchise (sequels, TV shows, etc.). I was actually quite intrigued by the trailers for the first film […]

Fly High And Soar Through The Heavens With ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ (Movie Review)

While I tend to be a very impatient fellow who’s always wanting something else as fast as it can be handed to me, there are some things worth the wait.  There are such things as the perfect film.  Lightning can surely strike the same place twice.  And for those reasons and so many more, that’s […]

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Blu-ray Review)

An assumption about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is that it appears to be a light-hearted adventure comedy made for a trendy crowd, due to the use of various elements in its trailers.  I would not necessarily agree, but that seems to have inspired a lot of ire in the film from some, for […]
