‘Assassin’s Creed’ Takes A Leap Of Faith Into Video Game Movie Despair (Movie Review)

A colleague of mind constantly claims how studios should have at least been able to accidentally make a great video game movie at this point. Assassin’s Creed is unfortunately not the accident we’ve been waiting for. In those terms, sure there have been films of this ilk that have found success (the Resident Evil films), […]

X-Men: Apocalypse (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

X-Men (along with Blade) is credited with giving launch to the 2nd wave of comic book superhero movies.  Its also, cleverly, still going along within its own continuity.  Two years ago, Bryan Singer returned to the franchise he gave life with the fun and exciting Days Of Future Past.  That film melded together the original […]

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Is A Bland Look At The End Of The World (Movie Review)

Imagine a rich comic universe with plenty of potential to be found in simply taking a piece of it, rather than cramming so much into one feature film.

Macbeth (Blu-ray Review)

There have been more than ten film adaptations of Macbeth and all sorts of media that has taken on the story (or parts of it) in a new way. This version from director Justin Kurzel has a lot of good things, but other factors that take away from a film I really wanted to like. […]

Slow West (Blu-ray Review)

A western starring Michael Fassbender is good enough to get me excited. Slow West was in limited release this past spring. While it was not a huge hit, it did make a big splash with critics and served as something of a nice distraction in between the bigger budgeted westerns that arrive in theaters every […]

A film like Frank is not for everyone, but who cares?  I had a lot of fun with this offbeat comedy that keeps the head of its main character inside a large papier-mâché head.  The film is a comedy, a road movie of sorts, and a look at experimental/indie music culture.  It is also very […]
