Passengers (4K UHD & 3D Blu-ray Review)

Passengers is a film that I have a lot of history with personally speaking.  The original script for Passengers was written by Jon Spaihts way back in 2007, and had been in development hell for years now.  I mention this because not only have my own projects been in development hell, but this very script was my first read in a […]

Nocturnal Animals (Blu-ray Review)

Nocturnal Animals is a flick I knew nothing about prior to seeing theatrically last year.  I had never heard of it before so when the press screening invite arrived in my inbox it was very much a surprise to me.  I saw that Amy Adams was in it and decided to give the trailer a spin. […]

Underworld (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Underworld is one of those films that I’ll never forget where in life I was when I saw it.  I’ll spare you the details, but I  remember that evening vividly as it was a good one.  It also came out at just the right time when the vampire craze was just ramping up and ironically was […]

Pratt And Lawrence Are Romantic ‘Passengers’…In Spaaaace! (Movie Review)

It’s taken nearly 10 years to bring Passengers to the big screen and I’m not quite sure why. The film feels like an easy sell. Get two A-list stars together for a romantic science fiction film, set on a spaceship. It calls to mind a great bit from Thank You For Smoking, where Rob Lowe’s […]

Far From The Madding Crowd (Blu-ray Review)

It was nice to revisit Far From The Madding Crowd, as it is one of my early favorites of the year. The film may seem like a traditional period drama, but it does well for the genre by working as a very watchable one. Thanks to strong performances, tight editing that appears to cut away […]

Consider Your Options Before Accepting ‘Admission’ (Movie Review)

Admission is a film that I do not have anything against, for what it is, but I also do not have a whole lot to say about it, as the film is pretty bland.  At this point, I saw the film a few weeks ago and it really did not make much of a lasting […]

Spend An Enjoyable ‘Midnight In Paris’ At Any Time

There is a great, classic scene in Woody Allen’s Annie Hall, which has Allen’s character literally pull philosopher/literary critic Marshall McLuhan onto the frame, in order to have him directly tell another character why he is misinformed in his opinions, giving Allen the ultimate form of satisfaction.  In Allen’s latest film, Midnight in Paris, the […]

‘TRON: Legacy’ Fights for the Users and the Audience

In 1982, Disney released an original science fiction film known as TRON. Despite its unique concept and the presence of Jeff Bridges, the film was only met with moderate success, developing a cult following over the years. TRON’s most notable aspect, at the time, was in regards to the way it pioneered the use of computer technology to create its special effects. Despite this notable quality, the film was disqualified from Oscar consideration regarding the special effects, because it was deemed to have cheated. Now, 28 years later, due to the power young geeks who grew up watching TRON and are now working for Disney, a sequel has been made.

Tron: Legacy – The Functional and The Faulty

This past summer at San Diego’s Comic-Con, I had the very rare opportunity to speak with Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges regarding his role in the revival of the Tron franchise.  I had asked the seasoned screen vet what his reaction was when he was approached to do a sequel since the first film came out nearly […]

My family and I are big Disney fans.  We go to Disneyland whenever we can, we watch the Disney Channel, and we also enjoy all of the Disney/Pixar movies too.  My two year old especially loves all things Disney so we watch a lot of it in our household.  He seems fascinated by Tinker Bell […]

Comic-Con 2010: Tron Legacy Press Event

It was nearly 30 years ago when Disney released a science fiction film that altered the landscape of special effects.  Known simply as Tron, the film included the likes of the now Oscar winner Jeff Bridges.  The story was simple; a guy gets warped into a computer and has to find his way out.  Little […]
