Jupiter Ascending (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Jupiter Ascending, quite the despised film that I guess won’t go away thanks to a new home video format.  My average film score on the Blu-ray and kind thoughts on the merits it did bring to the table were met with plenty of disdain when I posted the review and shared it to social media.  The […]

‘The Martian’ Cultivates A Rich Extraplanetary Film Experience (Movie Review)

The Martian is one of those rare moments where I went into the movie knowing full well what was going to happen.  No, I’m not clairvoyant.  I read the book written by Andy Weir.  However, what makes the headlines even more interesting besides me reading a book is the fact that Andy’s novel was first self […]

Any Day (DVD Review)

Any Day is an alright movie about faith and perseverance even when things seem at their darkest but it doesn’t beat the viewer over the head with a bible or religion.  It’s slow moving but has a great cast.  And BONUS…Sean Bean does NOT die in this one!

After months of speculation and curiosity, countered by delays and implied bad buzz, things have unfortunately not tipped in favor of Jupiter Ascending, the new, original sci-fi/fantasy film from the Wachowskis.  I really wanted to like this movie and all of the right elements are certainly there, given the fairly game cast, the production design, […]

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Is Wonderfully…AWFUL! (Movie Review)

If I was completely ignorant and judged Jupiter Ascending by its cover, I’d be staying the hell away from it even though I love science fiction.  The trailers for the movie looked absolutely horrible.  When they pulled it from its former release schedule last year I have to be honest with y’all, I was hoping […]

The Island (Blu-ray Review)

The Island was a bit of a surprise, because I wasn’t really expecting it when it arrived.  I’m not complaining, mind you.  The Island is a futuristic science fiction film directed by Michael Bay.  Yes, that Michael Bay.  The guy that directed Bad Boys, Transformers, The Rock, etc.  I missed it in theaters upon release.  […]
