Everest (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Make no mistake about it, Everest is not going to win any feel good movie-of-the-year awards on the new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format.  It’s a very cold and brutal experience to behold especially now that it’s crystal clear and more pronounced than ever on the new home media format.  The extra clarity of the […]

Climb ‘Everest’ on Blu-ray This January!

I saw this one theatrically and it did not make me miss my hometown of Cleveland, OH one bit.  In fact, if I never saw snow again, I’d be alright.  With that being said this is a very cold movie.  Brr.  So here’s the deal.  Unbridled ambition, a ferocious storm, and the limits of human […]

Brandon’s Top 14 Films Of The Year That Was 2014

All right, its my turn.  Up front, there’s a few movies I didn’t get to.  I haven’t been able to get out and see Whiplash yet.  Selma and Inherent Vice don’t open here in my fair city until the year reads 2015.  In 2014, my little bundle of wonderful daughter was born, so like 2012 […]

A Most Wanted Man (Blu-ray Review)

“The author behind Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and the director of The American have joined forces to seemingly put together the most deliberately paced, convoluted spy thriller since those two films I just mentioned for A Most Wanted Man.”  That is one way to sum up this espionage-drama based on John le Carre’s novel, but […]

‘The Congress’ Features The Wright Ambition (Movie Review)

I saw writer/director’s Ari Folman’s 2008 film Waltz with Bashir and was very intrigued by where he would go next.  That film revolved around a character searching for his lost memories as an Israeli soldier and was made using unique animation techniques.  Folman’s new film, The Congress, is similarly about finding one’s self in a […]

Adore (Blu-ray Review)

To be honest with you all, I’m not really sure what I was expecting here.  I really wanted something juicy, gross and full of controversy and taboo.  However, I’m not quite sure I received quite everything on my wish list.  Make no mistake about it, things that happen in this film are completely wrong, gross […]

‘Adore’ Naomi Watts on Blu-ray This December

I remember when our Paramount PR peson first sent me the trailer to this film, I checked it out instantly and my curiosity was elevated immediately.  It had such a twisted and convoluting plot line that I thought this just has to be interesting.  I resisted reading any reviews or checking it out On Demand […]

Rampart (Movie Review)

If you’re going to make a movie about cops, you’ve got a few templates to choose from:  you can do the “Rookie Story”, where you follow an up-and-comer through the ranks as he achieves his goal of becoming a decorated police officer;  you can go the “Grizzled Detective” route, and put an embittered, brilliant detective […]

‘The Conspirator’ Has Been Found Accurate, But Average

The Conspirator means well, despite only measuring up to being decent.  I majored in History, I am a fan of the subject matter being presented, and I am a fan of director Robert Redford and his cast of very talented individuals.  It is unfortunate that this film could not bring all of these elements together […]
