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 […]

Kong: Skull Island (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I’m sorry but try as I might I’m just not a fan at all of 2014’s Godzilla reboot.  That’s not a slam to director Gareth Edwards because I love his work in Rogue One, but rather a multitude of things I felt were wrong with the effort.  I gave it many chances too as I even […]

Juice – 25th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray Review)

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Juice, one of the few notable “hood” movies to come out during a time when Spike Lee had made a name for himself and opened up a path for other directors to make films about black culture in LA and NY. Fittingly, Juice was written and directed by Lee’s frequent cinematographer at […]

xXx: Return of Xander Cage (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

While I have been completely disgusted by what has been transpiring with the divided American public this year (rioting, violence, demonstrations, destruction, etc) since the Presidential Inauguration there’s no doubt about it, the women very much have the power in xXx: Return of Xander Cage.  Feminists and enemies of President Trump cannot argue that.  Without […]

JUICE, Starring Tupac Shakur, Debuts on Blu-ray June 6th for its 25th Anniversary

A powerful morality tale steeped in 90s urban culture, JUICE marked the feature directorial debut of Spike Lee’s acclaimed cinematographer Ernest R. Dickerson and the first starring roles for Omar Epps and an electrifying Tupac Shakur.  25 years later, the gritty and influential film continues to be celebrated for its realistic portrayal of Harlem life, […]

Welcome To ‘Kong’s Jungle (Movie Review)

Deep in the jungles of blockbuster cinema is a beast, or hero if you will, but he doesn’t wear a cape or much of anything. No, this hero simply stands 100 feet tall to fight off other monsters and delivers the kind of joy you want in a rip-roaring adventure that doesn’t forget to have […]

Feminists Rejoice! Xander Cage Returns! (Movie Review)

That’s right.  I said it.  While I have been completely disgusted by what has been transpiring with the American public these past couple days (rioting, violence, destruction) since the Inauguration there’s no doubt about it, the women very much have the power in XXX: Return of Xander Cage.  Feminists cannot argue that.  Without the many […]

‘xXx’: Reports Of Xander Cage’s Death Were Greatly Exaggerated (Movie Review)

There is a point in xXx: Return of Xander Cage where Vin Diesel starts wearing a giant fur coat, as if to suggest this 49-year old skater/adrenaline junkie/tattoo harvester/former spy was not cool enough for audiences already.  The coat is not a huge part of the film (and thinking about it now, I’m curious if […]

The Exorcist III – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

The Exorcist II: The Heretic proved that even the worst of sequels cannot effectively kill a franchise.  One of the most reviled follow ups of all time, the John Boorman film hardly sees a unironic form of praise anywhere across the criticism community.  But, it always finds its place in bizarre or worst sequel lists.

The Legend of Tarzan (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Legend of Tarzan feels like a film that was set up to fail from the very start.  How much interest is there really with a modern day telling of Tarzan where your leading man sports blonde locks?  The trailers were personally satisfying, but something about it just reeked of stay away to me.  That’s […]

Tim Burton Seems At Home With ‘Peculiar Children’ (Movie Review)

Perhaps it was just a matter of time until we saw director Tim Burton make a YA novel adaptation. It makes plenty of sense, as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children allows Burton to explore an entire household filled with loners, outcasts and “freaks”, as opposed to focusing on just one. Instead of following just […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar “X-Men” Children (Movie Review)

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a “peculiar” name in its own right, don’t you think?  So here’s the deal.  There’s a guy I know in my work/personal life that has been talking about this film for over a year now.  He seems to be quite the movie connoisseur, but here’s the kicker.  He […]

‘The Legend Of Tarzan’ Fails To Swing To Great Heights (Movie Review)

For all The Legend of Tarzan has going for it, which includes big stars, big budget effects and a proven director, the resulting film is a bland misfire. Attempting to create new interest in a 100+ year old pulp hero is not a terrible idea, but this film has seemingly no ambition to do much […]
