Trolls (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Ahhh, the treasure trolls.  They’ve been around forever.  Everyone grew up with one, knows what they are, sold a lot of items based on different colors of hair.  Popular damn things.  Are they still?  Not sure.  However, wow, it has taken a REALLY long time for them to get a movie off the ground, right?

‘Trolls’ Sparkles And Glitters Its Way Through A Stock Animated Adventure (Movie Review)

Sometimes it is necessary to expect a level entertainment that simply does not work for you. Trolls is essentially fine in providing an assortment of colors and music to keep its intended audience (younglings) thrilled for a majority of the screentime. There is a message at its core, the voice actors all seem game, the […]

Despicable Me 2: Attack Of The Minions (Movie Review)

It would appear that the Despicable Me films are not for me.  Despite having a love for animated films, wacky humor, and films that have original songs and themes by Pharrell Williams, I remained unattached to what should be entertaining me quite easily.  The concept of pulling a reverse-Incredibles and having us follow a reformed […]

‘Rock of Ages’ Rocks it Out

What do you do with a successful off-Broadway musical from 2005?  You take it to Broadway.  What happens after it’s a hit there?  Why, make it a movie, of course! In its live production form, Rock of Ages debuted 7 years ago in Los Angeles and after eventually transitioning to Broadway, the much-heralded concept hit the big screen this past […]

Gregg’s Top 10 Cinema Films of 2011 (and some duds too)

I was kind of worried throughout the first half of the year that it wasn’t going to be a pleasant 2011 as far as theater viewings went. There were more than a few flops at the cinema by the time June came to a close with a sparse picking of films that had some ‘wow’ factor. […]

Arthur (Blu-ray Review)

Finally, the much delayed Why So Blu review of the Arthur Blu-ray is here!  One of the best things I can say about Arthur is that a lot of people laughed really hard when I saw it in theaters, and that does not make them wrong.  However, the percentage of those people who had seen […]

Have A Drunken Laugh Or Two With ‘Arthur’

Arthur puts itself in a difficult place when it comes to evaluating it.  One of the best things I can say about Arthur is that a lot of people laughed really hard in my theater, and that does not make them wrong.  However, the percentage of those people who had seen the original 1981 Arthur […]

Get Him to the Greek …and You to the Theater!

With the Blackhawks throwing away game 3 in the Stanley Cup Finals, and also game 4 as I write this, I needed a definite pick-me-up this week.  MacGruber was recommended to me by a co-worker a few days ago, but honestly, I cannot bring myself to anything more than a rental for that film.  Was […]
