I’m not sure where to start about 10 Cloverfield Lane in this Blu-ray review. Do I talk about how much I love this film or do I explore the veil of secrecy it was literally made under? I mean we all knew J.J. Abrams was busy far, far away in another galaxy making The Force Awakens, but how […]

I’m very excited about this news today! Acclaimed producer J.J. Abrams and up-and-coming director Dan Trachtenberg deliver a new masterpiece that critics are calling “riveting, gripping and loaded with tension” (Scott Mantz, “Access Hollywood”) when 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE debuts on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand June 14, 2016 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. […]
Putting aside the marketing and whatever connections made to another monster movie, 10 Cloverfield Lane is a nifty little thriller that delivers on tension and performances. Shrouding a film like this in secrecy works as an interesting experiment, but what matters is how effective it is. As a result, regardless of where this flick came […]
Hi, I’m Brandon Peters and I am not an A.C.O.D. My wife is also not a member of the Adult Children Of Divorce. So, I really don’t know what that whole thing is like, even though growing up I’ve had friends and dated women that have had divorced parents. I’ve only witnessed things as an […]
Just so I can get this out of the way, A.C.O.D. stands for ‘Adult Children of Divorce’. That actually makes the title of the movie sound less important than it is, but it will be tough to predict how often I plan on calling back to the full title of this movie. Regardless, as both […]
When it comes to teenager-focused comedy dramas, based around high school life, I tend to look at Cameron Crowe’s Say Anything as my favorite of that bunch. The Spectacular Now is a film adaptation of an acclaimed novel by Tim Tharp and it has come very close to giving me the same vibe that I […]
SMASHED, the powerful and gripping drama starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and two-time Emmy Award®-winner Aaron Paul (TV’s “Breaking Bad,” Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, 2012; 2010), arrives on Blu-ray™and DVD March 12th from Sony Pictures Classics and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The star-studded supporting cast includes Nick Offerman (TV’s “Parks & Recreation”), […]
This past summer, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter came and went through theaters without much of an impact. It was not really a colossal failure, but it also did not do much to win over fans of a genre mash-up. I read the book based on recommendations and obvious intrigue, due to the fact that it’s […]
The election season is about to get a whole lot bloodier as a historical legend throws his hat into the ring in ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, arriving on Blu-ray™3D, Blu-ray™ and DVD October 23 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. A citizen by day and a hunter by night, this action-packed film with cutting-edge visual […]
The wait is FINALLY over! One of my favorite fictional books of 2010 has been adapted and now for very first time…officially presented on the big screen in eye-popping 3-D, if you so choose. Hip, hip hooray! Of course, I’m talking about none other than Seth Grahame-Smith’s mashup novel, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a combination […]
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history’s greatest hunter of the undead.
There is a certain level of expectancy when seeing a movie like this. I was first made aware of this bizarre sounding mash-up idea a little over a year ago. The film is based on a book by Seth Grahame-Smith (who also served as the film’s screenwriter), which became a bestseller. I read the book […]
A pointless retread, cleverly disguised as a prequel to John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic. Sure it is set before the events of the previous ‘Thing’, but this film so wishes to be just like its predecessor, it’s just too bad no one wanted to concentrate on a decent script or finding what it takes to […]
Let’s face it; every movie idea has been done. So what does that leave? Remakes….and prequels. Case in point: The Thing (Strike Entertainment). While it leads one to believe it’s a remake, it in actuality is a prequel to the John Carpenter film of the same name. We all know that John Carpenter’s The Thing […]
On Monday, November 1, 2010, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World was screened at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood and followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), its star Michael Cera (Superbad, Arrested Development), and the creator of the original comic book series, Bryan Lee O’Malley. This […]
On Monday, November 1, 2010, director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) moderated a question and answer session with director Edgar Wright, actor Michael Cera, and comic author and illustrator Bryan Lee O’Malley about Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, which is to be released on Blu-Ray and DVD November 9, 2010.
The comic-con sensation is now on Blu-ray and although it may not have done great business at the box office, I predict that over time more audiences will discover this movie much like they did director Edgar Wright’s earlier movies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Also like those previous films, Scott Pilgrim is […]
Alright, it’s time for me to confess. As much as I said I hated the trailers for this film and as much as I bashed it every time I saw the trailers, I really want to watch Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and see what all the hype is about. There I said it. Hopefully […]
