Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Eight New Indie Titles

Making up for last week’s small cinema windfall, I’m pounding the movie pavement and taking on a massive eight indie flicks for full film examination for the fans.  Via online screeners, sample home product and even shelling bucks out of pocket (I’m a film freak who puts his movie dissection money where his mouth is!), […]

Oblivion (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Oblivion is one of those extra special theatrical experiences that I’ll never forget in life.  I owe it all to Aaron Neuwirth.  The year was 2013 and my significant other and I had just moved down to Austin, TX from Cleveland, OH.  This was before Cleveland was a championship town.  We were both lost down […]

Game of Thrones: The Complete Fifth Season (Blu-ray Review)

Game of Thrones is bigger than ever in Season 5.  Don’t believe me?  Try this on for size.  It’s the winner of 12 Emmy Awards (the most of any series in one year) and a Guinness World Record holder for the largest simultaneous broadcast of a TV drama (in 173 countries and territories worldwide).  I […]

‘Gods Of Egypt’ Goes All In On Goofiness (Movie Review)

To say Gods of Egypt is in a league of its own would be an understatement. This fantasy adventure, functioning as a combination of space opera an Ancient Egyptian mythology brought to life, is gloriously stupid in a way that should be fun-bad, but sadly becomes too repetitive to hold onto even that sort of […]

Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season (Blu-ray Review)

Game of Thrones Blu-ray reviews are very intimidating to write about.  Let’s be honest, there’s a lot of ground to cover here.  Do you take the high road and skim over everything without spoilers in fear or ruining it for anyone reading that has not seen the fourth season yet, or do you grow a pair […]

The Other Women…I mean ‘The Other Woman’ (Movie Review)

Three grown woman find out they are sharing the same guy and become friends with a mission to have their silly revenge.  Admittedly I do not have a whole lot of tolerance for these kinds of movies.  I am not talking about ‘chick flicks’, as there are plenty of ‘chick flicks’ that I enjoy and […]

Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season (Blu-ray Review)

I’m sorry, but whenever I think of the title Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season, I can’t help the imagery conjured up in my mind of one of television’s most shocking episodes of all time, “The Rains of Castamere.”  Wow!  I never saw that coming and rightfully so because I’ve never read George R.R.

Mama (iTunes HD Digital Download Review)

Universal’s Mama was a film I purposely missed when I had a chance to attend the press screening for it up in Cleveland.  The movie’s trailer did not sell me and quite frankly, it looked God awful to me.  I had already suffered through a Guillermo del Toro produced film before and I did not […]

Here’s probably one of the only movies this year I am upset about that I missed out in the theater and I’m looking forward with much anticipation to checking this one out in the privacy of my own home this May courtesy of Universal Studios Home Entertainment (one of my favorite Blu-ray studios BTW).  Mama […]

NBFF Review: Headhunters

Monday night, April 30, 2012, at the Newport Beach Film Festival proved to be fairly worthwhile, as I was able to see a fairly entertaining thriller.  This was the Norwegian film Headhunters, which felt, in a lot of ways, like a nice follow up to other recent trashy thrillers such as Limitless or even The […]
