Ghost in the Shell (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I have to get the following off my chest first before we move along.  I have never seen nor do I have any interest in ever seeing the classic anime film Ghost in the Shell.  It doesn’t even intrigue me in the slightest.  I was such a big fan of The Transformers: The Movie was […]

The Visually Stunning ‘Ghost In The Shell’ Has A Major Problem (Movie Review)

For a new potential blockbuster so rich with ideas and visual imagination, it’s a shame to be left feeling so little for those involved in this story. Problematic casting issues aside (more on that later), this adaptation of the Japanese manga and anime film certainly felt like it was striving to deliver an intelligent look […]

Sing (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio most known for those darn Minions.  Actually, I enjoy the Despicable Me films, its just the one that focused on the little side characters was a giant waste of time (Though, I’m sure those seven and under probably loved it).  While that’s the flagship, they’ve actually carved quite a remarkable […]

Lucy (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Lucy was one of those in-home viewing experiences you can’t take back.  It was a religious experience, one of the best of my life.  After being slightly disappointed by the quality of my sci-fi fave Oblivion on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (review here) and the story in The Huntsman: Winter’s War (4K review forthcoming) I […]

Hail, Caesar! (Blu-ray Review)

While they are among the most acclaimed modern filmmakers of today, one of the criticisms leveled at Joel and Ethan Coen is how mean they are to their characters.
