The film turned Will Smith into a superstar, provided Irwin Allen disaster movie-like thrills on a grand scale, and delivered a fun sci-fi alien invasion flick. It was also earnest, heartfelt and audacious. 20 years later we have Independence Day: Resurgence, which […]

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 […]
