‘London Has Fallen’ Down A Deep Hole (Movie Review)

I did not see this coming, but London Has Fallen proves to be the movie that shows what nuance Michael Bay can bring to his films by comparison. This generic and borderline offensive sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen is downright schlocky in the way it proposes to back up its $100 million budget with […]

Supernova (Blu-ray Review)

When Scream Factory announced they were releasing Supernova many moons ago, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the distributor’s most celebrated announcement of all time.  The film came out back in 2000, wasn’t liked at all and bombed at the box office pretty hard.  Director Walter Hill allowed it to have some sort of historical significance […]

Automata (Blu-ray Review)

Isn’t it funny to think that Alex Proyas’ 2004 sci-fi action-thriller I, Robot is already ten years old?  It doesn’t seem that long.  The CG effects don’t look aged.  The actors, save for a young Shia LaBeouf, don’t look like they’ve aged all that much, either.  The story hasn’t aged, as is evidenced by the […]

Scream Factory Presents SUPERNOVA January 13, 2015!

Supernova turns 15 years old next year.  After blowing out that 15th candle on its cake, it’ll be able to, like most of us probably, give it another look.  This film was a pretty massive failure at the box office, too.  Also of note, its the first film to use the “Thomas Lee” pseudonym instead […]

An Ashley Judd Sighting Amplifies ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ on Blu-ray!

Stop the press!  I don’t care if it’s only a brief moment…word has it that Ashley Judd makes an appearance in Olympus Has Fallen and that’s good enough for me!  It warms my heart that she’s actually in a movie that’s critically reviewed as being okay because God I swear she has made more bad […]

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ And A 90s Action Movie Rises (Movie Review)

It is funny how some movies strike me differently than others, despite their similarities.  Olympus Has Fallen has all the jingoism, xenophobia, and silliness to match awful films like Red Dawn or Red Tails.  It is also cheap and ugly enough at times to match an awful film like A Good Day To Die Hard.  […]

‘The Descendants’ Is Set In Hawaii, But It’s Not All Sunshine And Rainbows

I was starting to wonder where Alexander Payne went.  Following the large success of 2004’s Sideways, I was hoping to see more films from him sooner.  Payne has made success out of strong comedy-dramas, with some dark and satiric edges to them and I have been a fan of his films.  Now he has finally […]
