All the Way (Blu-ray Review)

All the Way exists in a strange space for films where it is packed on with talent and amazing performances, but was made for HBO to be shown on the premium channel instead of in theaters, where its message, cast, writing, and brilliance would have a greater chance to be celebrated by a larger audience.

‘London Has Fallen’ Down A Deep Hole (Movie Review)

I did not see this coming, but London Has Fallen proves to be the movie that shows what nuance Michael Bay can bring to his films by comparison. This generic and borderline offensive sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen is downright schlocky in the way it proposes to back up its $100 million budget with […]

The Equalizer (Blu-ray Review)

Truth be told I wanted nothing to do with The Equalizer when it came out theatrically.  I even went as far as to not make any plans to attend the press screening of it when it dropped in my area.  What kind of reviewer does that?  I can tell you.  It’s a bad one.  I guess […]

The Equalizer Brings Balance To The Blu-ray Format This December

Here’s another title that slipped past me theatrically this year at the movies, but I have heard enough good word of mouth about The Equalizer, starring Academy Award Winner Denzel Washington, that I want to take the next step on the Blu-ray format and give it a chance.  Looks like I’ll get my cake and eat it […]

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn (Blu-ray Review)

Another month, another remake, director Phil Alden Robinson’s The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is a remake of a 1997 Israeli film The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum.  Both films deal with the idea of anger and mortality.   The new version has a recognizable cast of Robin Williams, Mila Kunis (who is also an Executive Producer), Melissa Leo, and […]

Prisoners (Blu-ray Review)

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 […]

The Unnecessary Film About ‘Charlie Countryman’ (Movie Review)

If there is one thing that Charlie Countryman was able to do, it was remind me to express how much love I have for the film Run Lola Run, which is a fast-paced, off-beat, flurry of an action film, supporting themes of love, chance, and inevitability vs. free will; all while being fueled by a […]

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 […]

‘Prisoners’ Sets Its Sights On Terrifying Parents (Movie Review)

Prisoners does such a great job at providing many spooky possibilities for what could have happened to two innocent, little girls that it is a shame the ending does not quite pack more of a wallop.  While certainly a dark and heavy kidnapping drama to get through, it is only able to accomplish so much […]

An Ashley Judd Sighting Amplifies ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ on Blu-ray!

Stop the press!  I don’t care if it’s only a brief moment…word has it that Ashley Judd makes an appearance in Olympus Has Fallen and that’s good enough for me!  It warms my heart that she’s actually in a movie that’s critically reviewed as being okay because God I swear she has made more bad […]
