Doctor Strange (Blu-ray Review)

Doctor Strange is a Marvel comics character I was fully aware of, knew what he looked like, kinda understood his powers and the like, but knew not much of and backreading or the details of him.  Couldn’t tell you his villains or allies or big arcs he went through.  I believe I did see that […]

Doctor Strange is Magically Entertaining (Movie Review)

Doctor Strange is actually one Marvel comics movie I was not looking forward to.  Truth be told I’ve never been a fan of the comic book character.  He always reminded me too much of Tony Stark in the looks department.  Coupled with the fact that I’m not a huge Benedict Cumberbatch fan and I’m already […]

‘Doctor Strange’ And The Sorcerer Supreme’s Infinity Stone (Movie Review)

True Detective: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)

They say lightning doesn’t strike twice, but I beg to differ…at least in the world of entertainment.  When we’re talking about Hollywood I can think of many second films in a franchise that are just as good as their predecessors with obvious examples being classics such as The Godfather Part II, Star Wars: The Empire […]

Southpaw (Blu-ray Review)

Southpaw is defined in the sport of boxing as the stance where the boxer has his right hand and right foot forward, leading with right jabs, and following with a left cross right hook.  Southpaw is the normal stance for a left-handed boxer.  Fictional boxer Rocky Balboa, for example, was a southpaw.  Therefore, I think you can pretty much conjure up that Jake Gyllenhaal’s […]

A Most Wanted Man (Blu-ray Review)

“The author behind Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and the director of The American have joined forces to seemingly put together the most deliberately paced, convoluted spy thriller since those two films I just mentioned for A Most Wanted Man.”  That is one way to sum up this espionage-drama based on John le Carre’s novel, but […]

Spend An Enjoyable ‘Midnight In Paris’ At Any Time

There is a great, classic scene in Woody Allen’s Annie Hall, which has Allen’s character literally pull philosopher/literary critic Marshall McLuhan onto the frame, in order to have him directly tell another character why he is misinformed in his opinions, giving Allen the ultimate form of satisfaction.  In Allen’s latest film, Midnight in Paris, the […]

Rise and Shine for ‘Morning Glory’

Something has been gnawing at me about this cutesy, romantic comedy, based around a morning news program.  It has nothing to do with its leads, who are all charming in their own ways, whether it be Rachel McAdams bubbly, yet spunky personality, or Harrison Ford’s ability to play bull-headed and grumpy (yes, he’s “acting”) for […]

Sherlock Holmes (Blu-ray Review)

It still holds true, after my Blu-ray viewing last night, that I generally like movies more the second time around.  So why would last night’s viewing of Sherlock Holmes on Blu-ray be any different?  I’m not going to lie and say that I fell head over heels in love with the film concurrently with my […]
