Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Six Studio Films Past, Present & Future

I’ve been away on a vacation these last couple of weeks so the indie factor has gotten a tad harder to keep up with (nobody does smaller films in volume like LA!), but I have seen some studio fare and wanted to share some cinematical views.  For this particular article I’m delving into big budget […]

The Perks Of Being A ‘Spider-Man’ (Movie Review)

There’s a sequence in the very enjoyable Spider-Man: Homecoming where Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is in pursuit of a van and taking shortcuts through the backyards of a neighborhood. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off so clearly inspired the scene that director Jon Watts (Cop Car) even shows a clip from that film playing on a TV in […]

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Mixes Things Up & Spins A Fresh, New Web of Tales (Movie Review)

I think I’m one of the few people in the world who liked the third Sam Raimi Spider-Man film and you better believe it that I was bummed when the fourth in the series was nixed.  However, I did also adore Andrew Garfield as the next incarnation of Spider-Man and had high hopes for how […]

The Founder (Blu-ray Review)

Food, folks and now a film. I’m lovin’ it. Okay, I’ll stop with the silly McDonald’s puns. Like the fast food empire it became, everyone pretty much knows the name Ray Kroc when you hear it. You know him just like you know Colonel Sanders in association with KFC. He’s someone studied in the history, […]

‘The Founder’ Has A Well Done Screenplay Served With Undercooked Direction (Movie Review)

The story behind McDonald’s is almost as fascinating as the world’s obsession with the McRib. The Founder is a straightforward attempt to tell that story (of the history, not the pork sandwich), with a focus on Ray Kroc, the man who turned McDonald’s into what it would come be today, for better or worse. Given […]

Aaron’s Most Anticipated Films Of 2017 – A Month By Month Look

Given the research and only having so much to work with, this is always a tough list to put together. I see over a hundred movies a year theatrically and a lot of those films are ones I’ve been anticipating to some degree, while many others are smaller films that randomly arrive on the calendar […]

2015 has come to an end and now I get to post my favorite films of the year. This is never an easy list to put together and having seen 150+ films theatrically this past year, it was a challenge, but it is always fun to do and I’ve come up with a ranked list […]

‘Minions’ Is Just Colorful Noise (Movie Review)

It has happened. The Minions now have their own film. Admittedly I am not a Minions fan. I have seen both Despicable Me films and have not been fond of their antics. A whole film about them is not exactly something that was going to rock my world, but I am happy to give everything […]

Birdman (Blu-ray Review)

Birdman is an ambitious and unpredictable ball of energy that just so happens to be a spectacular film to watch.  Currently nominated for 9 Academy Awards, appearing on over 100 Top Ten lists, this was one of the defining films of 2014.  I was hugely anticipating the film before its release and was blown away […]

Porco Rosso (Blu-ray Review)

Porco Rosso was a bit of step in a different direction for Hayao Miyazaki.  This film would take a more adult tone and presence than his previous ventures.  Its still very accessible for children and in the “all ages” arena for viewing, but if its going to skew to one side of the fence, the […]

Brandon’s Top 14 Films Of The Year That Was 2014

All right, its my turn.  Up front, there’s a few movies I didn’t get to.  I haven’t been able to get out and see Whiplash yet.  Selma and Inherent Vice don’t open here in my fair city until the year reads 2015.  In 2014, my little bundle of wonderful daughter was born, so like 2012 […]

TOP 10: Brian White’s Favorite Heavy Hitting Films of 2014

It’s that time of the year again.  My how time flies by, huh?  I generally hate this time of the year not because of the holidays, but because it means nothing but cold and deadness outside and in a reviewer’s world, the dreaded TOP 10 lists as well.  Ugh!  I’m not going to lie.  I […]

Top Ten: Aaron’s Most Disappointing Films & The Worst Of 2014

Never a post of joy, but every year does see the release of films that are not very good.  I never seek out films with the purpose of hating them and a majority of these are not without redeemable elements, but if I have at least 10 films on a list that I consider better […]

‘Birdman’ Forever (Movie Review)

As if I needed more reasons to want to love Michael Keaton as a performer, director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has given the actor a fantastic role that puts him back in the spotlight, in a film that puts heavy emphasis on what it is to mean something to many, only to want to redefine one’s […]
