Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Seven New Indie Titles

An interesting mix of smaller movie notables this time out (T2-3D aside!) with a few films from previous weeks that I just saw in my humble effort to keep the all ardent cinefiles up to date.  (Plus the empty month of August sure has some slim pickins!)  Killer robots from the future now in 4K […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Eight New Indie Titles

Making up for last week’s small cinema windfall, I’m pounding the movie pavement and taking on a massive eight indie flicks for full film examination for the fans.  Via online screeners, sample home product and even shelling bucks out of pocket (I’m a film freak who puts his movie dissection money where his mouth is!), […]

The Secret Life of Pets (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Secret Life of Pets was a film we never made it to theatrically this year.  It wasn’t because we did not want to see it, quite the contrary, but it was just a bad timing thing.  Time is our enemy in life.   Then came news of the fact that this title was coming to the superior […]

A Dog’s Story Highlights ‘The Secret Life Of Pets’ (Movie Review)

It seems like a movie like this requires a reviewer to be upfront about their pet situation. I take care of a tarantula and teaching him to fetch has been tough. With that out of the way, The Secret Life of Pets is certainly a film that will tap into many things pet owners can […]

No Escape (Blu-ray Review)

The movie title No Escape (not the 1994 one) sounds so familiar, doesn’t it?  At least to me it does.  It sounds like it could easily be a name of a KISS song from the 1980s or something when they were struggling to find their sound during the Killers era, but I digress.  Perhaps what shocked me even more […]

There’s ‘No Escape’-ing The Intensity Here (Movie Review)

‘Million Dollar Arm’ Fouls Out (Movie Review)

It is easy to see the main issue with Million Dollar Arm, as it is all over the poster. I like Jon Hamm, I look forward to seeing what he does, once Mad Men ends and he can really delve into some much better film roles, which he is more than able to handle, but […]

A Duo From Way Back, ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’ Has Been Reimagined (Movie Review)

While I was never a big fan of The Smurfs, among other older cartoons that have since been turned into animated features, Peabody’s Improbable History, which was a part of The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show, was a series of skits that I always found entertaining.  I haven’t watched Peabody in years, but seeing this new […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2013 And Other Odds & Ends

It was a big year, but somehow I managed to put together a list of my favorite films of 2013.  I have to say that this was once again not the easiest list to put together.  Theatrically, I have seen 150+ films this year, so there were a lot of films to consider and figure […]

‘In A World’ Where Voice-Over Artists Get Their Own Film… (Movie Review)

It is almost strange to get that feeling where everything about a film you are watching clicks together.  Regardless of how open I try to be when seeing a movie, sometimes you just don’t expect certain films to hit you in a certain way.  I like actress Lake Bell, who also served as writer, director, […]

The Ladies Of ‘Black Rock’ Fight For Survival (Movie Review)

Black Rock is an incredibly simplistic thriller, which finds three women fighting for their lives after circumstances lead to them to dealing with some deadly individuals.  The film is not terribly deep, as it is basically an extended period of setup, followed by standard chase thriller plot machinations, but it does reach points of effective, […]

Friday at San Diego Comic Con, within the Hilton’s Indigo Ballroom, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim had a block of its biggest shows all present panels at Comic Con, including a look at their newest series, the animated TV adaptation of Black Dynamite.  I was only able to see the first three Adult Swim panels, which […]

How To Make It In America: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray Review)

“From the creators of Entourage…” Okay, I’m in!  Yes, I’m shallow, but you love it.  I got the word that I would be reviewing How To Make It In America, and got real excited.  Granted the title is a bit peculiar due to having the Entourage cloud hanging over it.  People may start talking and […]
