Allied (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I’m a big fan of the spy/espionage subgenre of dramas, thrillers and action films.  Whether it be James Bond, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, Jason Bourne or Bridge of Spies, I’m down for some those deceitful antics.  While 2015 was the year of the spy film (Or return, there were a lot), […]

It’s Love And War Between The ‘Allied’ (Movie Review)

It seems as if there is something to praise for making the kind of movie that suggests the phrase, “They don’t make ‘em like this anymore.” Allied seems to be gunning for that reaction. The Robert Zemeckis-directed suspense drama is the sort of old-fashioned war/romance story that assumes you can enjoy it based on the […]

Now You See Me 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Now You See Me 2 won’t get any points for originality in the title department.  There’s also the absence of one of the Fourth Horseman, Isla Fisher’s character, to explain.  However, what I was at least hoping for here was some fun magic, deception and illusion tricks.  That much the first film managed to provide.  […]

‘Now You See Me 2’ Brings More Magic Tricks And Shenanigans To The Table (Movie Review)

The core concept behind these Now You See Me films is making heist movies with magicians. That sounds incredibly fun to me and apparently many others, as the first film was a sleeper hit, paving the way for this sequel. Now You See Me 2 takes the ‘bigger is better’ route seen with most sequels […]

The Night Before (Blu-ray Review)

Here’s the holiday comedy that could have been a nice counter to the normal fall blockbusters. The Night Before tries really hard to be something fun and different, yet fit for the crowd that loved This Is The End and Neighbors. To its credit, there are some good laughs to be had, but it feels […]

The Interview: Freedom Edition (Blu-ray Review)

A small part of the world cried foul, threats were made from various sources, but here we are with the home release of the movie that presents an insane premise and matches it with the same sense of humor and themes that have made successes out of the filmmaking team that is Seth Rogen and […]

Own The “Freedom Edition” of ‘The Interview’ on Blu-ray in February!

Wow!  What can really be said about this title?  I have to be careful as I don’t want any terrorists ransacking my place or else it’s on like Rambo: First Blood!  So I have to choose my words very carefully as I tip toe around egg shells on the very delicate divide of what has […]

‘The Interview’ Is Just A Comedy (Movie Review)

[Note: I had no real desire to dig too far into the controversy surrounding this film, as I have been fascinated, but exhausted with keeping up with what has gone on in this surreal situation leading up to the eventual release of this film.  That said, my friend Scott Mendeslon, over at Forbes, has written […]

NBFF Review: Save The Date

Wrapping up my work at 2012’s Newport Beach Film Festival, the last film I was able to attend was the romantic-themed comedy-drama, Save the Date.  Having just watched Lola Versus the previous night, I felt like I found myself more or less in familiar territory, except that Lola Versus took place amongst a hip bunch […]
