The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story (Blu-ray Review)

In the beginning, the idea of producer Ryan Murphy being involved with a spin-off series of American Horror Story titled American Crime Story, with a focus on the O.J. Simpson murder trial for the first season, seemed risky to say the least. Now you put in a fantastic ensemble cast, use Jeffrey Tobin’s bestselling novel, […]

The Runner (Blu-ray Review)

I have a fascination with Nicolas Cage that is paramount to most things in my life. I googled bio-sonar once because I was on a walk in the dead of the night on the hem of a field of straw far from existence and I thought I heard Nicolas Cage’s voice from Adaptation and immediately […]

12 Years A Slave (Blu-ray Review)

12 Years A Slave is a truly gripping story that most certainly serves as an unflinching look at a horrible period of a man’s life, within a time period where injustice against man may have been at its peak in America, but does so with a mood that seems to distinguish itself from other period […]

‘12 Years A Slave,’ A Powerful Memoir Skillfully Brought To Life (Movie Review)

It can be a challenge to express why certain dramas work on a viewer more than others.  A film like 12 Years A Slave, which is based on the true life chronicle of man kidnapped and forced into slavery, could function on a level that dwells purely on misery and offers little beyond sadness for […]

American Horror Story: Asylum – The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)

American Horror Story: Asylum is the second season of the wildly thrilling FX horror television series American Horror Story.  The interesting thing about this show is that it’s billed as an anthology.  That means none of the events we discussed here in the first season have any relevance at all here.  Odd huh?  I love […]

Mud is the latest film from writer/director Jeff Nichols, who previously made Shotgun Stories and Take Shelter.  It is a nice change of pace, as Mud is the Nichols’ film with the most humor so far.  With Mud, Nichols continues to make wildly different films, despite setting them in the same type of locations with […]

Martha Marcy May Marlene (Blu-ray Review)

It is not rare to see independently made thrillers every so often, but it certainly is satisfying to see one that is well acted and crafted, rich with intrigue, and full of disturbingly quiet tension.  The tongue twistery-titled film Martha Marcy May Marlene is one that unfolds skillfully, telling a story set within two timelines […]
