The Hunter’s Prayer (Blu-ray Review)

Saban Films is one of the recent distributors that have attempted to provide a home for more moderately-budgeted films, but the problem with something like The Hunter’s Prayer is the lack of any awareness. Sure, years ago seeing Sam Worthington in a bland action film would have made for an easy mid-September/January release, but the […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Six New Indie Titles

Balancing two films festivals plus the weekly haul of indie flicks recently has proved taxing to say the least, but I’m all about seeking out great films, hailing those that surpass expectations and letting readers who are interested what to watch for.  (And what not to of course!)  So going beyond the sites featured Blu-ray’s […]

Everest (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Make no mistake about it, Everest is not going to win any feel good movie-of-the-year awards on the new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format.  It’s a very cold and brutal experience to behold especially now that it’s crystal clear and more pronounced than ever on the new home media format.  The extra clarity of the […]

Climb ‘Everest’ on Blu-ray This January!

I saw this one theatrically and it did not make me miss my hometown of Cleveland, OH one bit.  In fact, if I never saw snow again, I’d be alright.  With that being said this is a very cold movie.  Brr.  So here’s the deal.  Unbridled ambition, a ferocious storm, and the limits of human […]

Everest is Definitely Worth The Climb (Movie Review)

So let me first start off by saying that I am NOT a fan of 3D in movies.  I’ve found that 3D actually tends to make the picture darker than it should be and less defined.  Outside of the classic Michael Jackson short “Captain Eno,” I’ve yet to see an instance where it didn’t annoy […]

Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (Blu-ray Review)

In 1983, a group of childhood friends pulled off the crime of the century: kidnapping one of the richest men in the world, the heir of the Heineken beer empire (Anthony Hopkins). The shocking capture –by gunpoint in broad daylight on the streets of Amsterdam–resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for a kidnapped individual. […]

Cake (Blu-ray Review)

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment invites Blu-ray audiences to be inspired as they take a raw and emotional journey with a woman trying to navigate her way through personal redemption in Cake. Pete Hammond of  Deadline writes “JENNIFER ANISTON IS HEARTBREAKINGLY GOOD” as the star of this life-affirming, dark comedy.  She’s an “odd, funny, powerful central metaphor: […]

‘Sabotage’ Has Been Breached (Movie Review)

Sabotage is a nasty little thriller from writer/director David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch), which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger in another leading action movie role, following his term as Governor.  The film is getting its share of notice for having a plot that feels akin to an Agatha Christie-styled whodunit, as it revolves around Arnold’s […]

I’m Tellin’ y’all it’s ‘Sabotage’ (Movie Review)

So Sabotage!  Yeah!  I’m at a loss for words, truly.  I really wanted nothing to do with this one, but since it was a pretty lifeless week for press screeners in the Austin, TX area and there’s not a single one slated for Noah I thought why not?  I have been pleasantly surprised before and […]

‘Avatar’ Limited 3D Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Avatar is finally available for all of those who wanted to purchase a 3D version of the film.  James Cameron’s groundbreaking film has obviously had an effect on how people now view movies (for better or worse), given the onslaught of 3D releases, but now anyone with the proper capabilities will be able to experience […]

Wrath of the Titans (Blu-ray Review)

I guess the world didn’t have enough with the 2010 redux of Clash of the Titans.  That’s a good thing in my opinion.  In many ways, especially in the visual effects category, I thoroughly enjoyed the remake much more than the 80’s odyssey.  I was young and naïve back then.  Heck, back then I thought […]

Man On A Ledge (Blu-ray Review)

Man on a Ledge is a silly film about a man perching himself outside of a building, with a heist-like situation occurring at the same time.  It has a fairly strong cast and seemed like a film more fit for early autumn, rather than in the middle of January this past winter.  After seeing it, […]

MAN ON A LEDGE Blu-ray Prize Pack Giveaway Contest!

Here’s another one I missed in the theaters.  Dammit!  But I did hear good things about it.  Nevertheless, the action-thriller Man on a Ledge features an all star cast, led by Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans, Terminator: Salvation) as an ex-cop who escapes from prison to plan the ultimate heist: steal a $40 million […]

Those Wrathing, Clashing ‘Titans’ Are At It Again

I think there is a certain amount of humor in the fact that Wrath of the Titans is essentially a take-two on this movie series.  Wrath was certainly felt in regards to the 2010 film (which was in no way helped by the 3D that was then used as the key example of bad usage […]

Not “Empire”: ‘Wrath of the Titans’ (Movie Review)

Did they really need a sequel to 2010’s remake of the classic Clash of the Titans?  Of course they didn’t.  But if the success of 2011’s Insidious taught us anything, it’s that any movie that meekly survives to cultivate a profit in this tumulus day and age…well…deserves a sequel.  And rightfully so.  Why not?!  I […]

‘Man On A Ledge’ Jumps To Ridiculous Conclusions

There is a great film out there that seems to be about one thing, but is actually a lot more like another thing entirely.  It involves a man who must place himself in a precariously high position on a building, with a plan to accomplish a certain task.  Despite having this task in mind however, […]
