Land Of The Dead – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

When Dawn of the Dead (The Snyder version) became a big success, Universal final ponied up for George Romero’s fourth film in his vision for his legendary zombie “Of The Dead” series. Coming in the summer of 2005, the film didn’t really take off like Snyders, but importantly, the thing finally got made.  And I […]

Star Trek Beyond (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Star Trek Beyond promises us one thing going in, a departure from J. J. Abrams’ direction.  It of course delivers more, but my main concern was what kind of adventure are we in store for?  For too long now I hear complaints from longtime Trekkies upset over the direction of the first two films.  Most notably, […]

Ice Age: Collision Course (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Confession time.  I’ve never seen any of the Ice Age films before.  The saga began back in 2002 when I was still a wee lad in college.  At that age, they looked too kiddie for my refined early 20s taste and certainly weren’t even looking the slightest Pixar-esque.  Now, its 14 years since that first film […]

Teamwork & Visuals Push ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Just Another Day In Space (Movie Review)

This new series of Star Trek films should ideally have been my gateway into getting a better feel for the series. The J.J. Abrams films were not without merit, but even with a changing of hands to director Justin Lin, I seem to still be largely unmoved by what this franchise has to offer. The […]

Ice Age 5: The Mysterious Asteroid (Movie Review)

The Ice Age film series is about a strange a beast as Sid the sloth. While sequels and diminishing returns can often go hand in hand, this is the rare big-budget animated series that lost its way quickly, yet still manages to find success. Ice Age: Collision Course is not a very good film, as […]

Star Trek Into Darkness (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I will kind of start this review by echoing what I said over here in my first 4K UHD review of Star Trek.  It was two months ago when Paramount Home Media Distribution announced that director J.J. Abrams’ global blockbusters Star Trek and the reason why we are all here, Star Trek Into Darkness, would […]

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (Blu-ray Review)

There was a brief period of time in my life back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s where I just wasn’t a fan of Tom Cruise.  Maybe it was his relationship with Katie Holmes, or maybe it was all his scientology crap, I don’t know, but I just couldn’t watch his films for awhile (with the […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2013 And Other Odds & Ends

It was a big year, but somehow I managed to put together a list of my favorite films of 2013.  I have to say that this was once again not the easiest list to put together.  Theatrically, I have seen 150+ films this year, so there were a lot of films to consider and figure […]
