Maggie’s Plan (Blu-ray Review)

Maggie’s Plan is a modern screwball romantic comedy that deals with another neurotic Greta Gerwig character. Gerwig is the central character of the film and this comedy directed and written by Rebecca Miller certainly wants you to invest in her. It plays as a film about intellectuals, but does nothing but show how incapable these […]

‘The Angry Birds Movie’ Wastes More Of Your Time Than The Game (Movie Review)

It was about as frustrating to watch The Angry Birds Movie as it is to play the game and merely get one out of three stars on a given level. As harmless as a movie like this is, I am not all about giving something colorful and goofy a pass, simply because the young kids […]

Inherent Vice (Blu-ray Review)

Former flames, big time real estate moguls, something called the Golden Fang, and of course, lots of drugs; it looks like Doc might be getting in over his head.  Following There Will Be Blood and The Master it is nice to see writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson lighten up with Inherent Vice, an adaptation of Thomas […]

‘Feast’ Your Eyes on ‘Big Hero 6’and Their Big Hearts (Movie Review)

So today’s history lesson focuses on Disney’s acquisition of Marvel Entertainment way back in 2009.  Honestly, I can’t believe it has been that long, but I digress because I’m making money off their acquisition regardless in my stock portfolio.  However, getting back to our history lesson, back then Disney wanted something new and exciting so […]

Get your head out of the gutter, pervert!  This is a kids movie!  The Nut Job was a little animated feature that came out in the behemoth of “soon to be classics” release month of January.  It hopped over its budget but didn’t really make a massive intake like a lot of animated gems do […]

Turbo (Blu-ray Review)

The Indianapolis 500 hasn’t had a film with it as the subject in over 40 years.  The last time was the Paul Newman film Winning.  And even that one was the first film about the Indy 500 in 15 years.  Its one of the biggest events in the world and racing creates a whole lot […]

‘Turbo’ Allows Us To Watch A Speedy Escargot (Movie Review)

Turbo presents the idea of a snail racing in the Indy 500.  There are reasons why this happens and the fact that the film is animated and intended for children allows for an obvious amount of suspension of disbelief, but let me reiterate that this is a film that presents the idea of a Snail […]
