Thor: Ragnarok (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

While some have this illusion of some sort of fatigue (Black Panther is laughing HARD about that right now), 2017 was a pretty terrific year for the comic book super hero movies across the board.  Marvel’s three offerings all ramped up the fun factor and were as successful with their comedic chops as they were […]

‘Peter Rabbit’ Has Fun, Big Screen Mischief (Movie Review)

Well, it’s clear the American trailers have done a disservice to Peter Rabbit. Based on the classic children’s stories created by Beatrix Potter, this 2018 cinematic interpretation has the appearance of…well, something like Smurfs. The actual film is much better. It’s no Paddington 2, which came out first and could bury this movie any day […]

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 […]

It’s something of a shame that live-action adventure movies intended for a family audience are relegated to being the talk of film festivals, rather than something in demand by studios these days.

Let’s face it.  Escape Plan is the tag team hardcore action moviegoers of my generation have been dying to see happen on the big screen ever since the big guns of the 80’s.  With the exception of Arnold’s brief scenes in The Expendables series, Escape Plan truly marks the first time Sylvester Stallone and Arnold […]

Jurassic Park 3D (Movie Review)

I was sitting with a pretty, young lady some 21 years ago,  waiting to watch Indecent Proposal, when a preview came on for Jurassic Park.  I can still see the raptor’s eye peering into the kitchen window just before it fogged from the dinosaurs breath.  My date grabbed my arm tight and said, “we are definitely coming […]

Daybreakers Breaks the Mold

True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, Twilight and a forthcoming Underworld film.  Vampires are indeed hip again.  It takes me back to the not so distant days of the 90’s when vampire stories and the occasional production were all the rage.  History certainly does repeat itself.  Here we are in a very young 2010 and brothers […]
