John Wick: Chapter 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

In the fall of 2015, everyone was taken by surprise by the popularity of the Keanu Reeves pure action film, John Wick. The Keanu Reeves-led film featured what seemed like a silly premise, but played into becoming an all timer thanks to some fresh, innovative and game changing action choreography that felt a bit of […]

Forgotten Friday Flick – “Apocalypse Now”

Been sharing some quality adult movie time with my ever-growing son (who is of course named after a movie character himself!) and decided to highlight one of our recently viewed selections here for the uninitiated…and those who need a firm film reminder – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!  Today we delve right into “the horror” […]

Passengers (4K UHD & 3D Blu-ray Review)

Passengers is a film that I have a lot of history with personally speaking.  The original script for Passengers was written by Jon Spaihts way back in 2007, and had been in development hell for years now.  I mention this because not only have my own projects been in development hell, but this very script was my first read in a […]

‘John Wick’ Reloaded (Movie Review)

A good thing happened back in 2014. Not only did the assassin world learn John Wick was back, but audiences found out Keanu Reeves was back as well. While not exactly slumming (Reeves has starred, produced and directed many films over the last decade alone), John Wick became the first notable action film for the former […]

Forgotten Friday Flick – “King Of New York”

Having recently reviewed and torn apart the lame duck slasher outing The Driller Killer, I felt like I should make amends to Director Abel Ferrara, whom I’m actually a fan of, by recommending one of his five-star masterworks as a critical counterbalance to the condemnation – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!  This week I’m going […]

Man of Steel (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

When I first found out they were attempting to go down the road of reinventing, re-branding and rebooting the legendary Superman franchise I just flat out laughed.  Then I found out Watchmen’s Zack Snyder was directing the project.  I have absolutely nothing against the looks and visual style of his films.  I know Snyder has […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Before I begin with my review here I just want to take a moment to reflect upon the fact that when you think about it, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition is the biggest 4K UHD Blu-ray title to hit the infant format since its debut earlier this year.  Did that monumental […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition (Blu-ray Review)

It seems like forever since the mighty Aaron Neuwirth wrote of the manic news that broke at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 here, which surprised the six thousand plus fans in attendance with news that the direct follow-up to the very divided Man of Steel entry would not necessarily be a solo outing, but also would include the infamous […]

Darkness, Camera, Action! ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ (Movie Review)

‘Batman v Superman’ Is Gorgeous And Grim, With Little Room For Fun (Movie Review)

At its very best, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice depicts sequences ripped straight out of an Alex Ross comic book. When at its worst, this is a cold, muscled-up film that has the feel of something written by Frank Miller, minus the irony. There is far too much on display for me to call […]

Top 20: Aaron’s Odds & Ends of 2014

I enjoy putting together different year end lists, as they tend to function as a way for me to put emphasis on a lot of film that I would hope people check out at some point (or avoid, in the case of the ‘Worst of’ list).  This year, given how I have ranked a large […]

Pee-wee’s Playhouse – The Complete Series (Blu-ray Review)

Pee-wee’s Playhouse was very much an integral part of my childhood viewing.  I was the prime audience back in the day.  Every Saturday morning I would get up, have my marshmallow-y cereal and watch my cartoons.  Pee-wee’s Playhouse was always the very last show on in the morning.  The networks usually transitioned by having some live […]

Hannibal – Season 2 (Blu-ray Review)

Friday nights are not the most popular time you think of when it comes to “must see” television.  When a show moves to the end of the week its know as getting put in a “Friday Death Slot” where its assumed the next step for the show is cancellation.  However, few shows can do well […]

HANNIBAL Serves Up Its Second Season Sept 16 On Blu-ray

Network television’s best show of the last two years, Hannibal, is coming to Blu-ray.  The show’s second season continued its mythology building based off the Thomas Harris novels and deepened its lore.  Every frame, every breath of dialogue is so carefully constructed and it shows.  This show is so good, they’re bringing in elements from […]

Tap Into ‘The Signal’ (Movie Review)

The Signal is the kind of movie I want to support, despite finding some issues with it.  It is an original science fiction story with mysterious aspects that unfold as the film goes along in ways that I found consistently engaging.  The film ends up biting off a bit more than it can chew, but […]

Man of Steel (Blu-ray Review)

When I first found out they were attempting to go down the road of reinventing, rebranding and rebooting the legendary Superman franchise I just flat out laughed.  However, if you think that was rude, you should have heard the expletives I said when I found out that Watchmen’s Zack Snyder was helming the project.  I […]
