The Hitman’s Bodyguard (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Coming in as a surprise hit at the end of a pretty disappointing August this past summer was Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson buddy comedy, The Hitman’s Bodyguard. It was kind of a surprise, with many thinking Logan Lucky (Review for that 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray release coming soon) would probably do better. But, this […]

Chemistry Helps The Forgettable And Bombastic ‘Hitman’s Bodyguard’ (Movie Review)

There’s a silly, little movie I admire called Money Talks. It’s the pre-Rush Hour action-comedy starring Chris Tucker and directed by Brett Ratner that hit theaters in August 1997. I’ve seen it many times because it plays on TBS a lot and it’s easy to have on in the background. I mention this because The […]

Life (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Despite loving all things sci-fi and horror Life is a movie I had been against ever since I saw the very first trailer on television last year.  I felt like it was such a ripoff of Alien that it did not even warrant my attention.  However, the one thing I could not deny was what an […]

‘Life’ Is As Tension Filled As My Own (Movie Review)

Despite loving all things sci-fi and horror Life is a movie I’ve been against ever since I saw the very first trailer on television last year.  I felt like it was such a ripoff of Alien that it did not even warrant my attention.  The one thing I could not deny was what an absolutely fantastic […]

‘Life’ Can Be Harsh (Movie Review)

A couple weeks before seeing man tackle Life, I was able to witness the man versus nature in Kong: Skull Island. Both films feel similar in terms of their approach and inspiration. The situations presented are not unfamiliar and the filmmakers seem happier taking advantage of the means afforded to them in playing out their […]

Gregg’s Best and Worst Films of 2016

It was certainly a turbulent year in the entertainment business as 2016 saw the passing of numerous stars. Bowie left us, then Alan Rickman and the list went on with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds passing just days apart. While they have moved on to whatever the next stage may bring, we will always have […]

Brian White’s ‘Sin’sational TOP 10 Films of 2016

It’s that time of the year again, and I’m not referring to the expensive Holiday season.  I’m talking about the dreaded TOP 10 Favorite Films lists us reviewers annually face.  While some of us love putting these lists together others I know absolutely dread it.  It could be the notion of the extra work involved […]

Gregg’s Top 10 Blu-rays of 2016

It’s been a while since I amassed a favorite Blu-rays of the the year list. There was one final title I wanted to check out before concocting my ten favorites. I enjoyed Suicide Squad in the theater earlier this year, but just in case I enjoyed it even more after a second viewing, I had […]

Criminal (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

You know how movies come and go from the theater?  There always seems to be  that one a year where you say to yourself  that one got away from me.  You wish you could have made it to the theater to see it.  However, before you knew it you either forgot about it or the […]

DEADPOOL 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Demo Event

A week after the release of Deadpool on Blu-ray (review) and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, I was invited by 20th Century Fox to attend a demo event at the Fox Innovation Lab that would help explain the process of delivering what is currently the best possible home viewing experience for new releases. The result was an interesting […]

Deadpool (Blu-ray Review)

This year features a variety of superhero films and it turns out one of the wildest, offbeat ones will remain one of the year’s biggest hits. Yes, while the world deals with the various universes being created by Marvel Studios and Warner Bros., Fox has been plenty confident in this break from their X-Men films […]

Deadpool Comes to Blu-ray and DVD May 10th with Maximum Effort!

You may not have seen this coming, but Deadpool became one of the most successful superhero movies ever this year. Ryan Reynolds returned to the role he made infamous in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and made everyone much happier thanks to the committed work from everyone involved. The film is ridiculous, irreverent and full of action and comedy […]

Deadpool: Chimichangas For Everyone! (Movie Review)

I’m sure it’s part of my nature, but I think was one of the most pessimistic people going into the Deadpool screening this past Thursday evening.  It’s not because I feared that every funny, ludicrous moment was probably played out in the trailers, but instead overtime I think of Deadpool I think of that terrible X-Men […]

Mississippi Grind (Blu-ray Review)

Movies about people with a compulsion tend to work for me. While it is frustrating to see the lead characters make decisions that you know are going to hurt them in some way, I am compelled to see how they deal with the fallout of their actions. Mississippi Grind is a fine film about two […]

DEADPOOL Trailer: I’m Very Turned on Right Now

It’s here! I wrote about my love for this trailer last month when Director Tim Miller, Ryan Reynolds, and the cast showed up at Comic-Con with the red-band trailer. Of course, this isn’t as long as what they brought, but it’s still great nonetheless. The costume’s great, the jokes are funny, the action is violent, and […]

SDCC 2015: DEADPOOL Trailer is Just as Good as You Hoped

Deadpool took the stage to arguably the loudest reaction yet. Director Tim Miller was there, along with Ryan Reynolds, TJ Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Gina Carano, and everyone’s favorite Transporter, Ed Skrein.  The panel was introduced by a clip of Deadpool in a lounge chair, saying “From the studio that inexplicably sewed his fucking mouth shut.”  When […]
