Morgan (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Morgan was a film I undeniably didn’t get to theatrically very much so on purpose.  While the trailers and the promise of Ridley Scott producing it initially sucked me in the overall negative critical response kept me far away.  However, I couldn’t help but wonder what really was under the surface here within Morgan.  Is it just some […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Five New Indie Titles

Plenty of indie fare to examine this week – even some denied to yours truly!  (Both Blair Witch and Eddie Murphy’s dramatic turn Mr. Church gave a resounding NO when asked to be seen by little old me!)  But rest assured there’s more than enough to go around including some deep documentaries about everything from […]

‘Ratchet & Clank’ Now Has A Fun Movie In Its Arsenal (Movie Review)

In a year where four video game adaptations will be coming our way, Ratchet & Clank does not exactly win the gold medal for being the best, but it does do enough to be one of the more sufficient ones. The popular Insomniac Games series has made its way to the big screen and has […]

WonderCon 2016: RATCHET & CLANK

Good news! There is a very good chance Ratchet & Clank could turn out to be the very best video game adaptation ever. It’s not a high bar to clear, but there does seem to be a lot here that shows a fun movie that easily captures the spirit of the game. A lot of that […]

Straight Outta Compton: Unrated Director’s Cut (Blu-ray Review)

This is a weird segue into this Blu-ray review and I completely understand that, but rest assured it serves a point.  Just mere weeks ago I was having a Skype meeting with some of the newer faces around here at WSB, Wes, Jerad, Shohan, Bron and Jordan, and I was kind of telling them about […]

Shohan’s Top 10 Movie List for 2015

So concludes this year of movie adventures!  There have definitely been some surprising highs along with a few soul crushing lows, (cough) Fantastic 4 (cough).  But through it all, we have persevered to reach the truly great films of the past year that keep giving us a reason to leave our cozy homes in favor […]

Brian White’s Top 10 Favorite Films of 2015

It’s that time of the year again.  I generally hate this time of the year not because of the holidays, but because it means nothing but cold and deadness outside and in a reviewer’s world, the dreaded TOP 10 Favorite Films lists as well.  Last year there was an influx of good movies released theatrically (IMO) making […]

Straight Outta Compton Gets Dated on Blu-ray w/ Unrated Director’s Cut

This news has me doing cartwheels as this is one of my favorite films of 2015.  It took me by surprise how much I loved it!  So here’s the deal.  Follow the world’s most dangerous group, N.W.A. as they forge their anger and inner-city frustrations into the most potent weapon imaginable: their music.  In Straight Outta […]

San Andreas (Blu-ray Review)

It wouldn’t be another calendar year at the movies without the obligatory disaster film, would it?  No way!  This time out we have the heavyweight Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson leading the pack.  And while the film’s initial trailers, with the exception of the slow, melodic take on “California Dreamin,” didn’t do much to whet my appetite […]

‘Straight Outta Compton’ Is Dope (Movie Review)

For the first time in a very long time I’m honestly not even sure where to start with this review.  I really never had any interest in the hip hop, rap musical group NWA even though I grew up with them during their rise and as a result, many controversies.  I always thought their music […]

San Andreas: Still Fun Despite Not Being 100% Seismic Accurate

It’s almost summer 2015, but it wouldn’t be another year at the movies without the obligatory disaster film, would it?  No way!  This time out we have the heavyweight Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson leading the pack.  And while the trailers, with the exception of the slow, melodic take on “California Dreamin,” didn’t do much to […]

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON – Red Band Trailer w/ Intro from Dr. Dre & Ice Cube

I see a lot of promise here.  Straight Outta Compton reunites Ice Cube and director F. Gary Gray (Friday!) for a film that chronicles the early lives of Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, once known together as N.W.A. I am not usually one to check out red-band trailers (they tend to give away the goods, […]

‘The Congress’ Features The Wright Ambition (Movie Review)

I saw writer/director’s Ari Folman’s 2008 film Waltz with Bashir and was very intrigued by where he would go next.  That film revolved around a character searching for his lost memories as an Israeli soldier and was made using unique animation techniques.  Folman’s new film, The Congress, is similarly about finding one’s self in a […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Blu-ray Review)

When I moved to Austin, TX over a year ago from Cleveland, OH I expected my change of scenery to be quite stimulating and invigorating, but you all know that whole grass is always greener on the other side thing, right?  While the skies may not be grey all the time like in Cleveland, I […]

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, […]
