Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Five New Indie Titles

A handful of indie flicks counter the big budget Guardian weekend to varying results.  (There’s yet another five-star flick this week – no great cinema!)  Artists who push the creative line, bad guys gone good, fancy meals complete with a side of guilt, military men leading multiple lives and an ode to all things mom […]

The Town (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I didn’t use to be the biggest Ben Affleck fan around, but The Town was definitely one of the movies I could not wait to see after viewing its initial theatrical trailer.  Maybe it was those devilish looking bank robbing masks (click here to see what I am talking about) that reminded me so much of  Point Break‘s creepy presidential masks or maybe it […]

The BFG (Blu-ray Review)

The BFG, a big time collaborative effort to bring Roald Dahl’s classic story to the big screen in live action form seems like it would be a big deal, but maybe it was just past the time for excitement.  Maybe its not something for this current generation.  Its got a lot going for it with […]

The Gift (Blu-ray Review)

It’s going to take me awhile, but I’m sorry.  Every time I hear the movie title The Gift my mind instantly thinks of Sam Raimi’s 2001 film featuring the likes of Cate Blanchett, Katie Holmes, Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi and Greg Kinnear.  I keep having to tell myself it’s 2015 and movie titles are allowed to have the same name as others […]

Unwrap ‘The Gift’ To Subvert Your Thriller Expectations (Movie Review)

It’s going to take me awhile, but I’m sorry.  Every time I hear the movie title The Gift my mind instantly thinks of Sam Raimi’s 2001 film featuring the likes of Cate Blanchett, Katie Holmes, Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi and Greg Kinnear.  I keep having to tell myself it’s 2015 and movie titles are allowed to have the same name […]

Transcendence (Blu-ray Review)

Going into 2014, Transcendence was on my “movies to check out” list.  I didn’t really know all too much about it.  Mainly, it was the prospect of seeing longtime Christopher Nolan collaborator Wally Pfister make his directorial debut.  It was the notion of seeing someone from the Nolan tree branch out was attractive enough to […]

Own Transcendence On Blu-ray Combo Pack July 22nd!

Here’s a movie I was really looking forward to in 2014 and then I wound up not even seeing it in theaters.  I figured being something coming from a person off of the Nolan tree it had a chance.  I still can’t pass a judgement the film as I’ve not seen it myself, but I […]

‘Transcendence’ Exceeds No Limits (Movie Review)

For a techno-thriller about artificial intelligence, it actually seems to make sense that Transcendence does not have a whole lot of emotion to back up its big ideas, aside from  Paul Bettany’s cry face, which makes its appearance now and again.  This is a film that could have worked as a cheesy B-movie with the […]

Strap On Your Powdered Wig And Get Ready For ‘Closed Circuit’ (Movie Review)

I have to wonder sometimes how much time and consideration is put into the little details, before sending off the finished product and then being tackled by criticisms.  Closed Circuit has plenty going for it at first glance.  The film features a top notch cast, who are all putting forth reasonably good work as the […]

The Latest ‘Iron Man’ Is Back With Black (Movie Review)

Following the fever dream of comic geekery meets worldwide appeal that was 2012’s The Avengers, Marvel Studios is now back to producing a standalone feature for the star that kicked it all off – Iron Man.  Taking a step away from his super friends, Iron Man 3 is refreshing in how it does not need […]

The Town: Ultimate Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

The Town is a very fun bank heist/cops and robbers movie.  The film is Ben Affleck’s second time in the director’s chair, a follow up to the excellent Gone Baby Gone, and this film continues to prove that he is quite capable behind the camera.  The film is well made, wonderfully entertaining, and backed by […]

Everything Must Go (Blu-ray Review)

Over the past decade, Will Ferrell’s taken a spin on the same ride that Eddie Murphy, Mike Meyers, and Chevy Chase took before him:  he came out of nowhere to become an MVP on NBC’s SNL (whoa, that was a whole bunch of acronyms), appeared in a handful of smallish roles in other people’s comedies […]
