Wes Anderson’s Style Adorns ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ (Movie Review)

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a film not only packed with characters, sets, costumes, and all the things that tend to typify writer/director Wes Anderson’s style, it is also packed with story.  It is becoming more and more clear to me how much Anderson enjoys having films that are about stories being told to an […]

The latest James Bond film, Skyfall, is arriving on Blu-ray this February and I am quite excited for it.  Currently ranking as one of the most successful Bond films of all time, both critically (Great reviews all over and 5 Oscar Nominations) and commercially (One Billion Dollars *holds pinky to lip, Dr. Evil style*), this […]

007 Turns 50 in ‘Skyfall’ (Movie Review)

Please except my sincerest apologies for the delay in getting this online review out to you today.  You see, I had a completely different review that I’d already written in advance and it was going to serve as a lead in here, but I immediately discarded it after my press screening this past Wednesday evening.  […]

Wrath of the Titans (Blu-ray Review)

I guess the world didn’t have enough with the 2010 redux of Clash of the Titans.  That’s a good thing in my opinion.  In many ways, especially in the visual effects category, I thoroughly enjoyed the remake much more than the 80’s odyssey.  I was young and naïve back then.  Heck, back then I thought […]

Those Wrathing, Clashing ‘Titans’ Are At It Again

I think there is a certain amount of humor in the fact that Wrath of the Titans is essentially a take-two on this movie series.  Wrath was certainly felt in regards to the 2010 film (which was in no way helped by the 3D that was then used as the key example of bad usage […]

Not “Empire”: ‘Wrath of the Titans’ (Movie Review)

Did they really need a sequel to 2010’s remake of the classic Clash of the Titans?  Of course they didn’t.  But if the success of 2011’s Insidious taught us anything, it’s that any movie that meekly survives to cultivate a profit in this tumulus day and age…well…deserves a sequel.  And rightfully so.  Why not?!  I […]

Ralph Fiennes’ ‘Coriolanus’ + Modern Warfare

I am a fan of actor Ralph Fiennes.  I enjoy stories involving Greek tragedies.  And I tend to like films that reappropriate the works of Shakespeare in interesting ways.  I found the concept of having Ralph Fiennes star in his directorial debut of the Shakespeare tragedy Coriolanus, which has been set in modern times, despite […]

‘Harry Potter’ 8: Live and Let Die

So finally, after a decade’s worth of film, we have now reached the end of the Harry Potter movie franchise (minus potential spin-offs or whatever).  This is a pretty major event as far as large film series go.  Never has a major motion picture series managed to maintain all of the key actors for every […]

In a game such as Chess, the player progresses through by strategically moving their pieces into specific locations, one by one, hoping to reach a particular attack point.  Once all of the pieces are set, a series of actions could take place leading to the end of the game.  For this chapter in the Harry […]

Clash of the Titans – 2010 (Blu-ray Review)

After recently suffering through the original 1981 Clash of the Titans on Blu-ray (see review here), my apprehension towards this 2010 remake was quickly relinquished after only the first ten minutes into my theatrical press screening.  I was pleasantly surprised, instantly enchanted and obsessively engrossed within the mythical fantasy world brought to life using the […]

Blu-ray Battles with the ‘Clash of the Titans’

The Clash of the Titans will make its High-Definition debut this July.  That’s a long to time to wait to see Gemma Arterton again, but I’m sure I’ll live.  Speaking of Gemma, it gives me a reason to post yet another picture of her on the site.  Yea!  Of course, Clash of Titans also stars […]

Clash of the Titans Not So Titanic

When I discovered late last year that one of my favorite childhood movies was going to be remade, I was jittery with excitement.  Clash of the Titans was a film I enjoyed time and again, but notice I said ‘was’.  Let me preface this; Star Wars is a movie that used, for its time, cutting-edge […]
