Take On ‘Life Itself’ Even After The Balcony Has Closed (Movie Review)

Roger Ebert was a force to be reckoned with when it came to film criticism, and I was very saddened by his death in April, 2013.  The documentary film Life Itself, an adaptation of the late film critic’s memoir and a look at the last few months of his life, puts his story front and […]

The Wolf of Wall Street (Blu-ray Review)

At last, after months of waiting since last Christmas, I was able to view my favorite movie of last year, Wolf of Wall Street, in the privacy of my own home.  As expected, once again, it did not let me down.  I re-experienced 3 hours of pure enjoyment. That’s right, I said 3 hours of enjoyment […]

Laugh out loud when “The King of Comedy, The 30th Anniversary” arrives on Blu-ray This March

Martin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy is one of his films that people love, but does not seemed to get mention nearly as much as his other classics and more “popular” films.  I would easily put it in his top 10, if not his top 5.  It features another terrific performance by Robert De Niro, […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2013 And Other Odds & Ends

It was a big year, but somehow I managed to put together a list of my favorite films of 2013.  I have to say that this was once again not the easiest list to put together.  Theatrically, I have seen 150+ films this year, so there were a lot of films to consider and figure […]

Brandon’s Rendition Of The Top 10 Films Of 2013

It started off kind of weak and had a slightly mediocre summer (for mainstream movies), but overall 2013 was a really great year for movies.  I say that because this Top 10 list was an incredibly difficult task to put together.  One of the most challenging things every year is we are so hyped up […]

Brian White’s Indisputable Heavyweight ‘Top 10 Films of 2013’

The calendar year of 2013 was a tough one for me in the film department.  However, unlike my recent Top 10 Blu-ray list over here, where I struggled to even find ten Blu-rays that I really really liked in 2013 (only leaving off Cloud Atlas), I find myself faced with a smorgasbord of films that […]

Catch ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ (Movie Review)

Real life can be a funny thing, mainly because it happens differently to everyone and all you can really do is react to the different stories you here.  I haven’t read the memoir by Jordan Belfort, but the movie based upon it features a lot craziness that can seemingly only be matched by Roman orgies.  […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2011 & Other Yearly Wrap-Up Stuff

To me, 2011 was a pretty unusual year.  I say that because I found there to be an unusual amount of great films that came out in both the realm of mainstream feature films and the realm of art house and independent features.  This year, like any year, had its share of duds as well, […]
