4K UHD has been impressing me along the way this year.  One thing I really want to see more of on the format are classic films.  I know new films are going to look shiny, new and vibrant.  But, what I really want to see is how the vintage stuff is going to look and […]

Welcome Back To The Cartoonishly Grim World Of ‘Sin City’ (Movie Review)

In 2005 I fell in love with Sin City.  While the worst thing that film may have given since us was the directional ambitions of the graphic novel’s creator Frank Miller (see don’t see: The Spirit), it had plenty else to offer.  Director Robert Rodriguez delivered an ambitious and visually stunning adaptation of a few books from the […]

Muppets Most Wanted (Blu-ray Review)

The Muppets was a ceremonious return of our Jim Henson puppeteered crew of Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzy Bear, Gonzo and all our Muppet pals.  It was also a pretty sweeping success, so of course with there was going to be a sequel.  However, Jason Segel made it clear he was one-and-done so he […]

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Proves A Worthy “Sequel” (Movie Review)

I really did not know what to expect with this one having not seen anything Muppets on television or in the movies since my childhood.  I’m not entirely sure why I went that long with a Muppet-like drought, but nevertheless I did.  However, much to my surprise, Muppets Most Wanted was like a family reunion […]

The Devil’s In The Details (Blu-ray Review)

Film is a visual medium in which to craft visual tales.  Unlike programming on radio airwaves before it, a movie is able to let you see what is going on and keep you engaged primarily with what you are seeing with your eyes.  Someone never conveyed this to director Waymon Boone.  The Devil’s In The […]

Pawn (Blu-ray Review)

Twisting and turning its way onto Blu-ray is Anchor Bay’s Pawn.  It’s a film that lives on the plot twist, double cross and connectivity between characters.  With so many new revelations and turns through the film’s runtime, this film should be a mess.  However, it’s not clumsily handled, not expertly either, but well enough to […]

NBFF Reviews: The Iceman and Ghost Team One

I have already reviewed the Closing Night film of the 2013 Newport Beach Film Festival (the very entertaining The Way Way Back), but this is my final article in regards to the films I saw on Thursday night, closing out my time covering the festival.  It has been an exciting and exhausting experience, but I […]

‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ Presents A Sweeping Story Of Crime, Corruption, And Motorcycles! (Movie Review)

I recently watched Blue Valentine for the first time.  This was the 2010 anti-romance/drama that first brought together writer/director Derek Cianfrance and star Ryan Gosling.  There was a lot of good to be found in that film, particularly from co-star Michelle Williams, but the film was not without its issues.  That said, Cianfrance left a […]
