‘American Assassin’ and Other Tired Ideas (Movie Review)

American Assassin is a film so aggressively mediocre that it actually comes off worse as a result. Based off one of the many novels from a series by Vince Flynn, it somehow took four screenwriters to put together this story of a black ops recruit with attitude. Not that the actors involved are not game […]

Now You See Me 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Now You See Me 2 won’t get any points for originality in the title department.  There’s also the absence of one of the Fourth Horseman, Isla Fisher’s character, to explain.  However, what I was at least hoping for here was some fun magic, deception and illusion tricks.  That much the first film managed to provide.  […]

‘Now You See Me 2’ Brings More Magic Tricks And Shenanigans To The Table (Movie Review)

‘BOSS: Season Two’ Arriving And Taking Power On Blu-ray In April

On April 9th, Season 2 of Boss debuts on Blu-ray and I am curious to see more of this strongly acted Starz series, starring Golden Globe winner Kelsey Grammer.  I previously reviewed the first season (review HERE) and was left thinking that the second season could most likely be even better and more confident in […]

Wonderful World (Blu-ray Review)

As far as Matthew Broderick films go, I haven’t found one I don’t like and Wonderful World is no different.  We’ve seen him dance around in The Producers and of course who could forget him as the adorable slacker in Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, but now we see him as a pessimistic career proof-reader and failed children’s folksinger.  It’s an […]
