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 […]

Ice Age 5: The Mysterious Asteroid (Movie Review)

The Ice Age film series is about a strange a beast as Sid the sloth. While sequels and diminishing returns can often go hand in hand, this is the rare big-budget animated series that lost its way quickly, yet still manages to find success. Ice Age: Collision Course is not a very good film, as […]

Ice Age: Continental Drift (Blu-ray Review)

The arrival of a new Ice Age film is not something that initially thrilled me.  I enjoyed the first film in the series, but was let down by the sequel, which led to me not even bothering with the third entry in the franchise.  Still, given the opportunity to see this latest entry, ‘Continental Drift’, […]

Scary Movie 3 (Blu-ray Review)

There are countless reasons why I should think of this movie as low-brow, stupid, and idiotic attempt at a spoof film. However, I found myself laughing out loud throughout the entire movie, from the side-splittingly hilarious opening titles to the “twist” ending. Along with being a major improvement over the painful Scary Movie and Scary […]

Valentine’s Day (Blu-ray Review)

What can be more indicative of a romantic comedy than the title of Valentine’s Day?  Sure it’s sappy, and sure it’s formulaic as hell, but I just can’t shake the minority feeling that when I say compared to the handful of lackluster films I have seen theatrically these first five months of 2010, Valentine’s Day […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What’s more indicative of a romantic comedy than the title Valentine’s Day?  Sure it’s sappy, and sure it’s formulaic as hell, but I just can’t shake the minority feeling that when I say compared to the handful of lackluster films I have seen theatrically these first two months of 2010, Valentine’s Day was one of […]
