‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Features The Miniature Hero We Deserve (Movie Review)

In another world, it would not be too surprising to say this latest cinematic Batman adventure is a homerun. However, given how troubling things have been for the Dark Knight just last year, I am even happier to say just how enjoyable The LEGO Batman Movie really is. Given how awesome and surprisingly insightful 2014’s […]

Good news! There is a very good chance Ratchet & Clank could turn out to be the very best video game adaptation ever. It’s not a high bar to clear, but there does seem to be a lot here that shows a fun movie that easily captures the spirit of the game. A lot of that […]

Top Five (Blu-ray Review)

Top Five is Chris Rock’s third go-around as writer/director of a feature film. His first film(s) were Head of State, and I Think I Love My Wife.  I have not seen those two but was really anxious to see his latest film Top Five. The buzz surrounding Top Five was favorable and the trailers and promotional materials were pretty funny, so it […]

‘Top Five’ Made Me Laugh My Pants Off (Movie Review)

I am a fan of seeing live standup comedy.  Something I have observed in that setting is what people can get away with.  Something about the standup environment allows comedians and audiences (within reason) to joke and laugh about things they would otherwise consider too much of a taboo.  With Top Five, Chris Rock has […]

Welcome Back To The Cartoonishly Grim World Of ‘Sin City’ (Movie Review)

In 2005 I fell in love with Sin City.  While the worst thing that film may have given since us was the directional ambitions of the graphic novel’s creator Frank Miller (see don’t see: The Spirit), it had plenty else to offer.  Director Robert Rodriguez delivered an ambitious and visually stunning adaptation of a few books from the […]

Gimme Shelter (Blu-ray Review)

Maybe the most disappointing thing about this film is that it has nothing to do with The Rolling Stones.  Gimme Shelter is actually a small scale drama, based on a true story that details a time in the life of a troubled, pregnant teenager, after she ran away from her abusive mother, in an effort […]
