A United Kingdom (Blu-ray Review)

Not that all similar films need to be mentioned together, but 2016 offered two films that dealt with important interracial relationships that helped shape history. One was the Oscar-nominated Loving from director Jeff Nichols, which focused on an American couple. The other is A United Kingdom, from director Amma Asante (Belle). While having received good notices at various film festivals […]

‘Gone Girl’ Is Sick, Twisted Fun To Be Had (Movie Review)

While I have never read the novel of the same name, and despite this movie being directed by one of my favorites, Gone Girl simply looks on the cover like a movie I would eat up and relish every bite of it.  I mean let’s examine everything it has going for it.  It stars Ben […]

GONE GIRL Teaser Trailer, The Latest From Director David Fincher

Those keeping up with the news may have heard today that David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en, Zodiac) will likely not be directing a Steve Jobs biopic, scripted by Aaron Sorkin.  Given my love for their previous collaboration, The Social Network, that is unfortunate news, but with that said, the day was also met with a […]

The World’s End is the third part in the so-called Cornetto or Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, which includes 2004’s Shaun of the Dead and 2007’s Hot Fuzz.  The British comedy (although one could say it’s a little more than just this) is directed by Edgar Wright, who also co-writes the screenplay with actor Simon […]

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 […]

Here’s the thing about Jack Reacher – You have to accept a few things in order to get into the film.  For fans of the book series, you will have to accept the physical stature of Tom Cruise.  For people who are iffy on Tom Cruise in general, you will have to believe that he […]

Wrath of the Titans (Blu-ray Review)

I guess the world didn’t have enough with the 2010 redux of Clash of the Titans.  That’s a good thing in my opinion.  In many ways, especially in the visual effects category, I thoroughly enjoyed the remake much more than the 80’s odyssey.  I was young and naïve back then.  Heck, back then I thought […]

Those Wrathing, Clashing ‘Titans’ Are At It Again

I think there is a certain amount of humor in the fact that Wrath of the Titans is essentially a take-two on this movie series.  Wrath was certainly felt in regards to the 2010 film (which was in no way helped by the 3D that was then used as the key example of bad usage […]

Not “Empire”: ‘Wrath of the Titans’ (Movie Review)

Did they really need a sequel to 2010’s remake of the classic Clash of the Titans?  Of course they didn’t.  But if the success of 2011’s Insidious taught us anything, it’s that any movie that meekly survives to cultivate a profit in this tumulus day and age…well…deserves a sequel.  And rightfully so.  Why not?!  I […]
