The Mcconaissance. A term coined for the career comeback of Matthew McConaughey. A multi-year film run that resulted in the Academy Award winning performance for The Dallas Buyers’ Club.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Mixes Things Up & Spins A Fresh, New Web of Tales (Movie Review)

I think I’m one of the few people in the world who liked the third Sam Raimi Spider-Man film and you better believe it that I was bummed when the fourth in the series was nixed.  However, I did also adore Andrew Garfield as the next incarnation of Spider-Man and had high hopes for how […]

Love Is Strange (Blu-ray Review)

I tend to enjoy seeing process be put on display in film.  A lot of times that applies to crime dramas or heist films, where you see the way things play out in a wordless manner, involving a lot of the inner workings of certain activities.  Love Is Strange, a film that is not remotely close to […]

Don’t Beware, But Instead Welcome “The Ides Of March”

In reviewing a film that would be described as a political thriller, the question of how that person leans versus how the film is deciding to lean can easily come up.  This is the same as associating any personal view towards a film, come time for its evaluation.  Being subjective while holding back personal views […]

The Lincoln Lawyer (Blu-ray Review)

I am thrilled that a new Matthew McConaughey movie has arrived at my door.  While I love Matthew McConaughey in a completely superficial way (he’s hot), I’m glad to see that this isn’t the millionth Matthew McConaughey romantic comedy.  While he does a great job as a romantic comedy lead, most of those movies are […]
