NBFF 2017 Review: The Hero

One of the advantages of seeing smaller films touring around festivals is having a chance to see character actors in lead roles. The Hero provides the great Sam Elliot this chance and it’s a joy to watch. No stranger to cinema, Elliot has been a stable presence in many films and TV shows for over […]

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, […]

Sing (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio most known for those darn Minions.  Actually, I enjoy the Despicable Me films, its just the one that focused on the little side characters was a giant waste of time (Though, I’m sure those seven and under probably loved it).  While that’s the flagship, they’ve actually carved quite a remarkable […]

The Good, The Meh, and The Messy Films of SXSW (SXSW Review)

When a person watches 23 films over 9 days, it can be difficult to find the time to write enough about all of them. Also, with over 150 different films to choose from, it is nearly impossible to pick all winners. I have tried to cover the bigger films of the festival this year and […]

‘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 […]

Ice Age: Collision Course (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Confession time.  I’ve never seen any of the Ice Age films before.  The saga began back in 2002 when I was still a wee lad in college.  At that age, they looked too kiddie for my refined early 20s taste and certainly weren’t even looking the slightest Pixar-esque.  Now, its 14 years since that first film […]

Drunk History: Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD Review)

Drunk History is the brain child of Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner.  Apparently inspired by drunk ramblings of New Girl star Jake Johnson during a night out.  It originally was produced and air on the comedy website Funny Or Die.  In 2013, the web show was brought to the television format on Comedy Central.  It […]

22 Jump Street (Blu-ray Review)

It should be no surprise to anyone that the dynamic duo, hilarious tag team of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are back  reprising their respective roles from 2012 in the appropriately titled 22 Jump Street (I’ll expand upon that more down below).  I last talked about 21 Jump Street in my Blu-ray review over here in 2012 and I’m happy to […]

22 Jump Street Addresses The Blu-ray Format November 18th

22 Jump Street sees Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum back in action in Columbia Pictures’/Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ outrageously explosive comedy, debuting on Digital HD on Oct. 28th, and on Blu-ray and DVD Nov. 18th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.  After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) when […]

Ernest & Celestine (Blu-ray Review)

For the past several years, the Oscars hand out nominations to a handful of animated films and while Pixar and DreamWorks tend to be shoe-ins for nominations, there are also a few films that tend to sneak in, despite not being big blockbusters.  Ernest & Celestine is just one of those films.  This French feature, […]

The LEGO Movie: Everything Is Awesome Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Let’s get one thing straight from the start.  When I went into the press screening earlier this year I was completely against this movie.  While it looked unique and looked like it could be fun, I just did not want to invest the time in it and regret it later because you know life’s too short, yada, […]

‘The Lego Movie’ Has Been Built Into Something Awesome (Movie Review)

This is one of those “expectations exceeded” situations.  I was already plenty happy to go into The Lego Movie, given the lively and fun marketing presented for this film, along with my knowledge that it has come from the directors or both Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, films I very […]

Everything Is Awesome In ‘The Lego Movie’ (Movie Review)

Let’s get one thing straight from the start.  Even going into the press screening this past Saturday I was against this movie.  While it looked unique and looked like it could be fun, I just did not want to invest the time in it and regret it later because you know life’s too short, yada, […]

We’re The Millers (Blu-ray Review)

Come on!  Let’s be serious here!  I initially only saw this movie for two main reasons.  First, I had to check out Jennifer Aniston’s banging stripper body (tell me who didn’t) and second, when that boy starts singing “Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls” in the RV at the end of the film’s theatrical trailer, he had […]

Home Entertainment has set a November 19th Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download release date for the hilarious We’re The Millers starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis and many more.  The Blu-ray Combo Pack […]

‘In A World’ Where Voice-Over Artists Get Their Own Film… (Movie Review)

It is almost strange to get that feeling where everything about a film you are watching clicks together.  Regardless of how open I try to be when seeing a movie, sometimes you just don’t expect certain films to hit you in a certain way.  I like actress Lake Bell, who also served as writer, director, […]
