Wahlberg Goes All In With ‘The Gambler’ (Movie Review)

In a film about high stakes gambling and the crushing weight an addiction (or whatever Mark Wahlberg’s character wants to call it), knowing how to balance the tension and frustration of someone constantly risking it all with cinematic skill is very important.  Rupert Wyatt’s directorial follow-up to Rise of the Planet of the Apes is […]

‘The Gambler’ Gambled With My Time (Movie Review)

The Gambler is just what Hollywood needs, another remake.  The American crime drama, directed by Rupert Wyatt, is simply that, a remake of the 1974 film of the same name (nothing to do with Kenny Rogers).  This time out, it stars Mark Wahlberg as the gambler with contributions by big name stars such as John […]

Transformers Age of Extinction (Blu-ray Review)

Transformers Age of Extinction, the fourth film in the Michael Bay Transformers franchise, is both a theatrical movie and a Blu-ray that I wanted nothing to do with.  The last two, minus seeing Megan Fox and her sexy thumbs in the second film, were absolute bowel movements in motion.  How many times can we see the same story repeated […]

Trans4mers: Continental Drift (Movie Review)

How does one approach reviewing a movie like Transformers: Age of Extinction?  It ultimately does not matter too much, as this Michael “Boom Boom” Bay-directed franchise has no real problem turning a profit, even while critics and a certain percentage of audiences chuck nothing but garbage its way.  This is the fourth installment of the […]

Transformers: Age of Extinction – The Bowel Movement (Movie Review)

Let it be known before we get started here that I wanted nothing to do with this fourth film in the Michael Bay Transformers franchise.  The last two, minus seeing Megan Fox and her clubbed thumbs in the second film, were absolute crud.  How many times can we see the same story repeated over and […]

Transformers: Age of Extinction – The Big Game Spot

Not being much of a fan of all these “trailers for the trailers” that has become a “thing” these days, I was pretty happy to be looking forward to the first teaser for the new Transformers trailer of all things, during the Super Bowl, given how it didn’t resort to a “5-second look at the […]

‘Lone Survivor’ Wants To Make Every Bullet Count (Movie Review)

Devotion can be a tricky thing.  Lone Survivor is ostensibly an action film, but because of its source material and the man who lived the experience, the effort that went into making this film seems to have been heavily concentrated on making it have the feel of an “important” story, just as much as a […]

You ever have those moments in life where you first see a film’s theatrical trailer, having never known anything about it beforehand, and instantly “know” that it’s a film you want to see upon its release with no hesitations or second guessing?  Well, that’s exactly how I felt about the film we are all gathered […]

Prisoners Escapes Onto Blu-ray This December

I’m sorry, but Wolverine has nothing on Hugh Jackman’s character here in Prisoners.  Whether or not you believe in his twisted form of justice or not is your problem.  I just know that this guy is an animal in this film and I’m looking forward to re-visiting this one on Blu-ray when it  arrives December […]

Pain & Gain (Blu-ray Review)

Pain & Gain is another one of those films in 2013 where try as I might, I just never made it to in the theater and therefore I have been waiting ever since its April theatrical release to check it out on the Blu-ray format.  Obviously, that day has finally come!  Hooray!  Thank you Paramount!  […]

2 stars, ‘2 Guns’, Too Fun? Maybe… (Movie Review)

2 Guns is a lot of things, but calling it ‘good’ is something I am having trouble trying to do.  Given that the film is based on a comic series, which I assume is very pulpy and full of dark humor, I could give it the benefit of the doubt that it is supposed to […]
