‘The Last Knight’ Bludgeons Audiences With ’Transformers’ Action (Movie Review)

I’ve never been one to shy away from my appreciation for what Michael “Boom Boom” Bay does with the Transformers films. Regardless of how well they may or may not work overall, these wacky blockbusters offer an over-the-top level of spectacle best seen on an IMAX screen. Somehow that all comes to a screeching halt […]

Ballers: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)

Spencer Strasmore and his boys are back to “ball out” in Season 2 of the hit HBO comedy Ballers.  I couldn’t be more excited about this!  Not only am I a fan of NFL football, which this show revolves around, but HBO’s Ballers also brought me closer to The Rock as an actor.  I love him now even […]

Deepwater Horizon (Blu-ray Review)

Director Peter Berg knocked out two films in 2016, both based on true, tragic American events. It could have been tricky to do, but he seems to be more in his element than ever and that brings us to his take on a disaster film.  As you may remember, given all the media coverage, Deepwater […]

If Deepwater Horizon was a solid warm up for director Peter Berg earlier this year, then Patriots Day is the hit he was going for. Working to portray an intense, real life situation without exploiting it, Berg carefully balances tragedy with heroics spread through a variety of characters simply doing their job. Minus some final […]

Ballers: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray Review)

Back in 2005 something odd happened.  There was a science fiction movie that came out named Doom.  That was a first for me because it became the first film adapted from a video game I actually didn’t hate.  Coincidentally it also starred one of the men we’re here to roast today, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.  Back […]

Ted 2 (Movie Review)

I haven’t wanted to walk out a movie so badly since last summer’s “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” also written/directed/starring Seth MacFarlane. If “Ted 2” doesn’t make my top 5 Worst Films of the Year in December, I’m going to be horrified. Lazy, pandering, boring, unbearably long, and excruciatingly unfunny, “Ted 2” […]
