Coffee And Cigarettes (Blu-ray Review)

Jim Jarmusch’s Coffee and Cigarettes was a film that came out of making three short films sharing that title.  The feature film doesn’t stray too far and really is a series of eleven short films or vignettes.  What they all carry in common are the fact that the whole movie is just about different people […]

RZA Stars in ‘The Man with the Iron Fists 2’ Hitting Blu-ray/DVD April 14

I guess I should not be too surprised that we are getting a sequel to a kung-fu movie that practically lends itself to having further installments.  I mean, if we got a Smokin Aces 2 then why not, right?  So here we are with another dip into the world of martial arts, filtered through the […]

The Protector 2 (Blu-ray Review)

If you’ll remember last weekend I reviewed Tony Jaa’s Ong Bak franchise in its entirety from the box set.  And after how much of a disappointment those sequels wound up being, you can imagine my hesitancy going into the sequel to another Tony Jaa film, The Protector 2.  Would we actually get a sequel this […]

The Explosive Brick Mansions Hits Blu-ray This September

I very purposefully avoided catching Brick Mansions in theaters, as I am a huge fan of the original version of this film, the french action flick District B13.  That said, this is one of the late Paul Walker’s final films, let alone another reason to see what it looks like when RZA commits to a major acting role.

THE PROTECTOR 2 Delivers Muay Of What You Want On Blu-ray July 29

I dig Tony Jaa’s style quite a bit.  I’m looking really forward to him joining in on Fast & Furious 7 when that drops next April.  When I saw his breakout film Ong-Bak, I was pretty blown away by his furious Muay Thai style and many of the fresh action sequences that beheld before my […]

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Blu-ray Review)

“They” say that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is coined the savior of franchises as of late with his propelling inclusion in the almighty, righteous Fast Five and now the sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, aptly titled G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  Now I may be in the minority here, but I don’t feel […]

‘The Man With The Iron Fists’ Is A Fitting Tribute From RZA

The Man with the Iron Fists is the movie that The RZA (pronounced Rih-Zah) has always wanted to make and a film that people would likely expect from him.  It is a martial arts epic infused with hip-hop that pays loving tribute to the Shaw Brothers era of Kung Fu movies, with a mix of […]

Due Date (Blu-ray Review)

I suppose it can be construed that Director Todd Phillips took on this project to give himself some much needed distance from his previous surprise hit (The Hangover) before tackling his next project, The Hangover 2 (currently in production).  I could completely understand if this was true and in all honesty, I would not blame […]

You Can Dig a Lot of Holes ‘The Next Three Days’

I hope some comments answer the question I am going to start this off with.  Why this film is called The Next Three Days?  After sitting through this silly thriller, which consists of a lot of empty entertainment that can easily fall apart for the viewer if they try to step back and think about […]

Don’t Miss The ‘Due Date’
