Hard Boiled Neeson Takes ‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’ (Movie Review)

A Walk Among the Tombstones is a nice change of pace as far Liam Neeson’s career as a B-movie action star goes.  While the film may be sold as another chance to see Neeson use a particular set of skills to beat up some bad guys, it is really more of a detective story that […]

‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’ Mostly Thrills (Movie Review)

A Walk Among The Tombstones movie trailer could initially fool someone into thinking they should be expecting Taken 3.  The trailer for A Walk Among The Tombstones shares some of the similar DNA to Taken with the same leading man, Liam Neeson, as well as familiar plot devices such as a tape recorder.  However, the cover of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole […]

The LEGO Movie: Everything Is Awesome Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Let’s get one thing straight from the start.  When I went into the press screening earlier this year I was completely against this movie.  While it looked unique and looked like it could be fun, I just did not want to invest the time in it and regret it later because you know life’s too short, yada, […]

‘A Million Ways’ To Seem Like A Western…Not Enough To Be Hilarious (Movie Review)

The surprising thing about Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West is how devoted to the genre it actually is. While I can only think of so many western comedies offhand, there are plenty of ways to turn the genre on its head and have a lot of fun with it. MacFarlane […]

The Nut Job (Blu-ray Review)

Get your head out of the gutter, pervert!  This is a kids movie!  The Nut Job was a little animated feature that came out in the behemoth of “soon to be classics” release month of January.  It hopped over its budget but didn’t really make a massive intake like a lot of animated gems do […]

What About ‘Non-Stop’ Though? (Movie Review)

It is fun to see how much credibility an actor with gravitas can bring to a really silly film.  Liam Neeson has returned to the action/thriller realm once again to star in an airplane-hijacking film, with twists and turns that go way too far in terms of being plausible.  It matters little though, as the […]

‘The Lego Movie’ Has Been Built Into Something Awesome (Movie Review)

This is one of those “expectations exceeded” situations.  I was already plenty happy to go into The Lego Movie, given the lively and fun marketing presented for this film, along with my knowledge that it has come from the directors or both Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, films I very […]

Darkman – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Originally slated for December, Scream Factory’s Collector’s Edition of Sam Raimi’s Darkman finally arrives on Blu-ray.  For good reason, too.  They got Liam “I will find you and I will kill you” Neeson to sit down for an interview exclusive to this release.  And, to be honest, this release was PACKED before they even cherry […]

Taken 2 (Blu-ray Review)

So Taken 2, huh?  You think they could have came up with a “better” name like Taken Again, Retook, Taken Aback, Retake or whatever else you’re clever enough to come up with.  But regardless, when I first sat down in the theater to “take” in Taken 2, I was just overjoyed to have Liam Neeson […]
