Cabin in the Woods (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Cabin in the Woods is one of those films that proves you should never judge any book by its cover or so to speak.  This is one of those stories for me that’s so much deeper than what appears on the surface.  What’s on the surface you ask?  Well in regards to this movie […]

Bone Tomahawk (Blu-ray Review)

Bone Tomahawk is a little horror-western that arrived in limited release this past year and serves as a nice display of technique from debut writer/director S. Craig Zahler.

Turbo (Blu-ray Review)

The Indianapolis 500 hasn’t had a film with it as the subject in over 40 years.  The last time was the Paul Newman film Winning.  And even that one was the first film about the Indy 500 in 15 years.  Its one of the biggest events in the world and racing creates a whole lot […]

White House Down Raises The Roof On Blu-ray This November

It was unfortunate that White House Down did not connect with a bigger audience this past summer.  While by no means perfect, it was easily everything one could ask for in a good time at the movies, during the summer movie season.  It is filled with action, has a great cast, and a lot of […]

‘Turbo’ Allows Us To Watch A Speedy Escargot (Movie Review)

Turbo presents the idea of a snail racing in the Indy 500.  There are reasons why this happens and the fact that the film is animated and intended for children allows for an obvious amount of suspension of disbelief, but let me reiterate that this is a film that presents the idea of a Snail […]

Jack Reacher (Blu-ray Review)

I’m not sure where I’ve been since 1997, but I’ve never heard of the name Jack Reacher until I heard news of the film being developed some years back.  Turns out Jack is quite the popular character from literary author Lee Child’s wildly “popular” series of novels.  Heck, this August will see the released of […]

‘Killing Them Softly’ Is A Sly, Satirical, Mob Vehicle Driven By Pitt (Movie Review)

So here is a movie about wiseguys dealing with a mob heist, presidential politics, and the American financial crisis.  I have a feeling that some people are going to be upset with this film for not being what they expected.  Regardless, Killing Them Softly is a sly, dark comedy-drama, with Brad Pitt in a wonderfully […]
