Ghostbusters: Answer The Call (4K UHD, 3D & Blu-ray Review)

Back in the days I used to fashion myself as a pretty big Ghostbusters fan.  I lost count how many times I seen the original back in the 80’s, but I can honestly attest to only seeing the second film once.  We all know how bad that film is so I won’t even go there.  Needless to […]

Don’t Slime Me, ‘Ghostbusters’ Is A Fun Update (Movie Review)

The prospect of putting together a new Ghostbusters is a daunting one, yet an interesting challenge. While the 1984 fantasy-comedy is regarded by many (including myself) as a classic, the concept of a group of scientists in the business of catching ghosts opens up a world of possibilities. Despite the many people (including the original […]

‘The Boss’ Gave Me A Raise In Spirit (Movie Review)

It is great to be surprisingly entertained by something. I am never seeing a movie with hopes to not enjoy it, but I have been decidedly mixed on the films of Melissa McCarthy. This is why I am so happy to say that I not only enjoyed another movie featuring her in a starring role, […]

Tammy (Blu-ray Review)

If there is one film that deservingly has the right and proudly should be able to give the middle finger write at box office pundits (that don’t write for Forbes), its Tammy.  This $20 million budgeted “one for me” film opening with a good $21 million opening weekend over 4th of July and because it […]

At its best, St. Vincent is a solid comedy-drama that features Bill Murray working at the best of his abilities as an actor to convey the sadness behind the guise of a smartass who has had a rough decline in later life.  When the film does not work as well, it is because writer/director Theodore […]

Tammy Is Sad, Messy, and Occasionally Endearing (Movie Review)

It is unfortunate that Tammy does not quite work overall.  Here we have a character-based, R-rated comedy, featuring a large number of female characters, with ideas that extend beyond big-budgeted set pieces, and it is arriving in theaters just in time for the Fourth of July.  Melissa McCarthy fans may certainly enjoy the opportunity given […]

What an interesting year we had as it presented us with plenty of ammo at both ends of the quality spectrum.
