Allied (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I’m a big fan of the spy/espionage subgenre of dramas, thrillers and action films.  Whether it be James Bond, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, Jason Bourne or Bridge of Spies, I’m down for some those deceitful antics.  While 2015 was the year of the spy film (Or return, there were a lot), […]

It’s Love And War Between The ‘Allied’ (Movie Review)

It seems as if there is something to praise for making the kind of movie that suggests the phrase, “They don’t make ‘em like this anymore.” Allied seems to be gunning for that reaction. The Robert Zemeckis-directed suspense drama is the sort of old-fashioned war/romance story that assumes you can enjoy it based on the […]

Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

This review is going to be a challenge for me.  You see, I’m not the world’s biggest Watchmen fan by any means.  The limited comic series of the same name bores me.  I also know how devastating that must be to read in the third sentence of a review.  However, let the record show, I’ve […]

‘The Imitation Game’ Is An Entertaining One (Movie Review)

I am a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch.  I even like to refer to him by his full name, Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch, because I enjoy celebrating just how British he is.  It is clear to me that I am not alone in my appreciation for BTCC, but I do enjoy that it is coming from […]

Don’t Miss the Extraordinary True Story of ‘BELLE’, Coming to Blu-ray This August!

Missed this one in theaters, but I heard very good things: Gugu Mbatha-Raw delivers “a breakthrough performance” (Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times) in this “gorgeous must-see film” (Cori Murray, Essence) that’s based on an extraordinary true story. Although Dido Elizabeth Belle (Mbatha-Raw), an 18th century English woman of mixed race, is raised in privilege by her […]

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 […]

Stoker (Blu-ray Review)

Stoker is one of those movies where I had every intention of seeing theatrically, but for whatever unknown reason or another the stars just didn’t align properly in my favor.  Sadly, it came and went and I was forced to wait until now to finally check it out.  In the meantime, I heard so many […]

I’m Stoked to Have Stoker Coming to Blu-ray!

I kind of have this stubborn rule in life where if I don’t see a film within it’s first to second week of being released in theaters, I just wait for its eventual home video release.  Such is the case with Stoker, but let the record show…I wanted to see this one very badly in […]
