The Movies That Got Away – How the Films We Missed Would’ve Changed Our Past Top 10’s

“There are only so many hours in the day.” That’s a statement we have all heard and probably even used ourselves. The same thing applies to movie watching and then some. There are only so many hours in a day and only so many movies we can get to in a year. Every year at […]

SDCC 2017: Blade Runner 2049

The Hall H 180 screens continued today with Blade Runner 2049. After a run down of what happened with Deckard and what has happened to society since 2019 (I won’t spoil it), Jared Leto came onstage and began discussing the future and what Blade Runner means to him. After he was done, he disappeared, revealing that we […]

Song To Song (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Terrence Malick has been on a tear in this current decade (Do we call it “the tens” or whatever?). It once took the man thirty eight years to put out five films, now he’s put out five works in the last six or seven years (One of said films is a documentary). I actually still […]

La La Land (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Who would have thought the innocent and just plain enjoyable La La Land from Damien Chazelle would have drawn up so much drama and controversy after being loved upon its launch.  But that’s Oscar season for you.

The Full Modern Malick Effect Continues In ‘Song To Song’ (Movie Review)

It can be mean, alienating and condescending to tell something they don’t “get” a movie. Terrence Malick, a filmmaker who has gone from reclusive and rarely making films to prolific, yet still reclusive as a person, seems to be making a conscious effort to challenge the notion of understanding cinema. His recent output has maintained […]

Why ‘La La Land’ is Overrated

Finally. I finally saw La La Land this past weekend. I took my seat, and though I’m not a fan of musicals, went in with an open mind. After all, I have grown quite fond of An American in Paris, Nine and of course Singing’ in the Rain. These were all great works with the […]

Aaron’s Most Anticipated Films Of 2017 – A Month By Month Look

Given the research and only having so much to work with, this is always a tough list to put together. I see over a hundred movies a year theatrically and a lot of those films are ones I’ve been anticipating to some degree, while many others are smaller films that randomly arrive on the calendar […]

Aaron’s Terrific Top Ten Films of 2016

The end of 2016 means an end to another year of great cinema. I had a tough time putting together this final list of films, as there was a strong selection to go through. Having watched over 175 films theatrically this year, it was fun to narrow things down to a final list of ten […]

Top 10 Films Of 2016: A Brandon Peters Story

As always when I do these “Best” lists, I ask two things of you, the reader.  Take the words best or top and replace it with “favorite”.  And importantly, number or ranking doesn’t matter, what is included does.  2016 was an interesting year for me, in that I feel a hair underqualified, but still, this […]

A Terrific Look At The City Of Stars In ‘La La Land’ (Movie Review)

Out in the world is someone with an idea that will turn into a great film. Filmmaker Damien Chazelle is proof that these people exist. Managing to do this twice is not easy accomplishment. So seeing Chazelle follow up on the intense joy that was Whiplash with La La Land, a 50s-style musical set in […]

Keeping in touch with the indie flicks of the week amidst a sea of year-end movies, there are more movies being watched than at ten film festivals combined.  But bound and determined to give our readers the skinny on cinema, I still managed to check out four smaller films this week and the subjects are […]

The Nice Guys (Blu-ray Review)

As a writer, Shane Black made a name for himself by scripting many successful mismatched buddy movies. Over time and after stepping into the director’s chair, Black has more evidently become a master of going against what’s expected to the tune of comedic and often times violent irony. The Nice Guys is a perfect embodiment […]

This case might raise a few eyebrows when “The Nice Guys” arrives onto Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD.

The Big Short (Blu-ray Review)

Adam McKay, the director of Anchorman and Step Brothers, has now won an Oscar for making a film that works tremendously well as a scathingly funny indictment of America’s most recent financial crisis. Here is a movie that eschews proper characters arcs in favor of being a terrifying lecture about how things went so wrong […]

Reilly’s drum set, you now have the film that awarded him an Oscar nomination for Best Director and more. Based on the best-selling book by Michael Lewis, THE BIG SHORT details the true story of four outsiders who […]
