The Kid Who Would Be King (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

King Arthur has a had a rough go of it at the box office in recent years time. Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword came out two years ago and bombed pretty hard (Having seen it, I’d say rightfully so). The Kid Who Would Be King takes a newer approach on the overdone […]

The Kid Who Would Be King (Blu-ray Review)

It has become something of a joke to see new cinematic takes on characters such as King Arthur and Robin Hood, and yet studios keep trying and failing to set up new franchises around them. Now, along comes Joe Cornish, director of 2011’s brilliant Attack the Block, with a vision for a kid-centric take on Arthurian legend, […]

Love, Brandon: Top 10 Films Of 2018

I’m not last, but posting the day after Aaron Neuwirth is a tough act to follow. He’s the most informed of us here and is able to see an impressive amount of films released in a given year. For me personally, 2018 felt like I didn’t see as much as I would have liked to […]

Brian’s Top 10 “Brian” Films of 2018!

Every year this Top 10 movie list gets harder and harder to write.  As the years go by I get the chance to see fewer and fewer movies theatrically.  Because of work, life and other commitments I feel like I’m constantly trying to play catch up and/or seeing most films some 3-4 months after they […]

Hello. My Name Is Brandon Peters. This Is My Top Blu-rays List. Prepare To Read!

One of my favorite and most frustrating times of the movie writing season is the end of the year “TOP X” lists. They are a lot of fun, but also hurt the brain when trying to weed through all the releases and then put them in a specific order. When it came to 2018, the […]

Mission: Impossible Fallout (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Having revisited the Mission: Impossible franchise this summer on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format (our reviews here, here, here, here and my favorite one here) I was pumped to theatrically take in the latest one dubbed Fallout.  My giddy excitement for this latest installment was further fueled by the early reports of reviewer peers of […]

‘Mission: Impossible Fallout’ Is ‘The Dark Knight’ Of The Franchise (Movie Review)

Having been revisiting the Mission: Impossible franchise as of late on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format (our reviews here, here, here, here and my favorite one here) I was pumped to take in the latest one dubbed Fallout.  My giddy excitement for this latest installment was further fueled by the early reports of reviewer peers […]

The Greatest Showman (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I don’t know what it is about me.  I’m a red-blooded American male who craves carnage, gore and action in every movie going experience I partake in, but I also have a huge soft spot in my heart when it comes to moving, engaging and rousing musicals.  The latter is exactly how I felt after […]

‘The Greatest Showman’ And His Limited Acts (Movie Review)

By all accounts, I would be happy to lavish praise on The Greatest Showman, a musical passion project for Hugh Jackman. He may not have written or produced the film, but Jackman is a Tony Award-winning song and dance man at heart, and he’s been attached to this movie since 2009. If anything, The Greatest […]

‘The Snowman’ Melts Quickly (Movie Review)

I know.  Say no more.  I already know what you’re thinking.  The Snowman is a ridiculous title for a crime thriller movie.  I concur with you.  However, even if it should melt after the First Act there’s always Rebecca Ferguson in it.  I have nothing but rave things to say about her.  So why not.

Life (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Despite loving all things sci-fi and horror Life is a movie I had been against ever since I saw the very first trailer on television last year.  I felt like it was such a ripoff of Alien that it did not even warrant my attention.  However, the one thing I could not deny was what an […]

Yet another genre spanning hodgepodge of flicks this week satisfying the movie geek need for smaller film fare.  Romance and espionage in the midst of the Cold War, zombies in a strip club, docs on damned jazz trumpeters and terror tales with a demonic slant all make up the films in this weeks edition of […]

‘Life’ Is As Tension Filled As My Own (Movie Review)

‘Life’ Can Be Harsh (Movie Review)

A couple weeks before seeing man tackle Life, I was able to witness the man versus nature in Kong: Skull Island. Both films feel similar in terms of their approach and inspiration. The situations presented are not unfamiliar and the filmmakers seem happier taking advantage of the means afforded to them in playing out their […]

The Girl on the Train (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review)

Before I begin this 4K Ultra HD review I wanted to give a big shout out to all my new Facebook friends on the 4K Ultra HD Home Cinema Group (join all the conversations here) for their support.  So let’s get down to business now.  The Girl on the Train instantly had two things going for […]

The Girl On The Train (Blu-ray Review)

The Girl on the Train instantly had two things going for it within my brain.  It features two actresses that will get me in the theater no matter what the film’s subject matter is about.  I’m respectfully talking Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson.  Ever since Edge of Tomorrow, Sicario and Mission Impossible Rogue Nation I’m a sucker for both of them.

The Girl On The Train Rides On Blu-ray & 4K Ultra HD This January

Here’s one I saw in the theaters and I liked quite a bit.  So this is what it’s all about.  Questioning everything she knows, a woman must face her terrifying past in the wake of a darkly mysterious event to piece together the truth in the provocative thriller, The Girl on the Train.  Based on USA TODAY’s 2015 […]
