The Lazarus Effect (Blu-ray Review)

I purposely chose to tackle the Blu-ray review of The Lazarus Effect for two main reasons.  First, I love stories about mad scientists.  There’s something about them playing God in the real world that just wildly appeals to me and curdles my blood.  Secondly, I feel like Anakin Skywalker at times.  I truly do want […]

Her (Blu-ray Review)

He Likes ‘Her’ A Lot (Movie Review)

If anything, I should be mad at Her for upsetting my list of best films of 2013.  Here is a film that I was excited for, as Spike Jonze is a force to be reckoned with, when it comes to directors of wildly imaginative original films (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation), and it turned out to […]

Fasten Your Seatbelt And ‘Rush’ To The Theater (Movie Review)

Rush is an incredibly solid drama that features fine film craftsmanship on display, solid performances from the lead actors, and a well-oiled story that respects its audience.  While the film is based on facts, it rarely dips into dramatized scenes that lessen the entertainment value to be found in the film.  It is the kind […]

‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’: Illusionist Or One-Trick Pony? (Movie Review)

Here is a movie that has a promising premise that could have been better pulled off if it was either structured differently or came out a decade earlier.

‘People Like Us’ Is Sentimental Stuff

I really don’t have anything against this movie for what it tries to be.  Given that someone already went ahead and called pull quote credit by proclaiming People Like Us as “The feel good movie of the summer,” I get the feeling that anyone that is going into this movie will probably have a good […]
