War Dogs (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I wasn’t able to get to War Dogs this past summer when it released to theaters.  And I was interested in checking it out theatrically.  There were a lot of factors that appealed to me.  Miles Teller and Jonah Hill seemed like a natural and exciting team up.  Todd Phillips is also a pretty good […]

Lord Of ‘War Dogs’ (Movie Review)

Director Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Old School) has been angling for a film like War Dogs the same way Oscar winner Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) angled for The Big Short. Both have not been above making goofy bro comedies, but they obviously have other ideas. McKay was met with plenty of acclaim for tackling […]

Divergent / Insurgent / Allegiant (Blu-ray Reviews)

Being a Divergent virgin, when I was recently asked about covering the Blu-ray release of the third film in the series Allegiant (out on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on July 12 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment) my immediate thought was to pass.  How could I review the third installment when […]

‘Allegiant’ Fights Against Tired Ideas (Movie Review)

There is something to be said for the third film in a franchise (based on three books) that can essentially reboot itself with the same characters. While the Divergent series wasn’t over, Insurgent did leave things in a curious position. Now we are getting more answers, but while Allegiant may be an improvement over the […]

Review: FANTASTIC FOUR: Not That Bad! Not That Good!

If the entire running time of Fantastic Four was a mess and a slog, it would be much easier to write about. But because the film gets so much right in it’s first 45 minutes, talking about it becomes extremely frustrating. The film is a clear example of project that tragically derailed and no one knew […]

Fantastic Four Is A “Grimm” Disgrace (Movie Review)

Let’s forget about whether this is a good film or not for a minute.  In my opinion, here’s a motion picture that should have never been made.  I understand all the reasons why it was made, the rights involved, securing the property and what not, but come on, really.  Do the trailers for this new Fantastic […]

Fantastic Four or Fant4stic’s Teaser Trailer Is Out!

In the age we live in, it is unfortunate that getting a mainstream superhero movie’s trailer less than a year (or at least 9 months) in advance is some sign of trouble.  For various reasons, despite the success of director Josh Trank’s Chronicle and the presence of proven acting talents in the form of Miles Teller (Whiplash, […]

‘Whiplash’ Rat-a-Tat-Tats Its Way Onto Blu-ray Next Month

If there’s one thing I know for certain in my life, it’s that I have to check out Whiplash next February 24th when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment brings it home on the Blu-ray format.  I feel like I am the only person in the movie reviewing biz that hasn’t seen this one and all my peers […]

‘Whiplash’ Most Certainly Hit The Tempo I Wanted (Movie Review)

Being a great drummer is clearly no easy feat.  One would not think a young jazz musician wanting to play drum at a music school would be the source for a gripping thriller, but then again, writer/director Damien Chazelle was responsible for writing the film Grand Piano, which was a thriller about a man forced […]

Divergent And The Prisoner Of Dauntless (Movie Review)

Divergent is the first sci-fi/action/coming-of-age film adapted from a young adult novel to be released this year.  For those keeping track, we still have The Giver, The Maze Runner, and The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay – Part 1 to look forward to in 2014.  I say this because these types of films have formed their […]

‘That Awkward Moment’…Indeed (Movie Review)

A few days ago I was discussing the HBO series Entourage with some friends and going over how it began as a fairly entertaining series, but eventually amounted to some conflict that could be extinguished with the simple mantra of, “Vince and the gang are going to be alright.”  The show mainly relied on the […]

Brandon’s Rendition Of The Top 10 Films Of 2013

It started off kind of weak and had a slightly mediocre summer (for mainstream movies), but overall 2013 was a really great year for movies.  I say that because this Top 10 list was an incredibly difficult task to put together.  One of the most challenging things every year is we are so hyped up […]

Head Into ‘The Spectacular Now’ (Movie Review)

When it comes to teenager-focused comedy dramas, based around high school life, I tend to look at Cameron Crowe’s Say Anything as my favorite of that bunch.  The Spectacular Now is a film adaptation of an acclaimed novel by Tim Tharp and it has come very close to giving me the same vibe that I […]

Comic-Con 2013: Summit Presents Divergent And Ender’s Game

Given all of the Star Wars news that didn’t happen at Comic Con this year, I may as well put out an article that has to deal with another movie about Harrison Ford and a war in the stars, so here it is.  Summit Entertainment had a presentation that occurred in a packed Hall H […]

’21 And Over’ Won’t Leave You With a Hangover (Movie Review)

My daughter turned 21 on March 1,  the same day that the movie 21 and Over was released.   In keeping with the theme, I thought it would be fun to celebrate my daughter’s 21st birthday by inviting her to the pre-release screening.  I mean, how bad could it be?  Let’s find out!

Beat For Beat, It’s The Old ‘Footloose’, But In New Boots

So earlier in the week, before seeing the new update of Footloose, I watched the original 1984 Footloose, starring Kevin Bacon, for the very first time.  Upon doing this, I found out something that I was not aware of – Footloose is a legitimately good movie and I was never aware of this fact.  It […]
