Atomic Blonde (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Atomic Blonde finally sees the light of day on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray after debuting all the way back this past March at SXSW (originally covered here by Bron Anderson).  So other than a woman, Charlize Theron, kicking ass John Wick style, what’s it all about?  You’re in the right place to get that question […]

The Mummy (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Despite loving Sofia Boutella in Kingsman: The Secret Service I must admit I wasn’t too keen on this newest monster tale reboot when I saw the first theatrical trailer.  Yawn!  I thought to myself another modern day movie that feels like it has to insert a woman into a leading role normally occupied by a man.  I […]

Comic-Con 2017: Charlize Theron & ‘Atomic Blonde’ (Movie Review)

I guess for the past couple of years now Entertainment Weekly has put on a Women Who Kick-Ass Panel at Comic-Con International.  This year’s panel featured a single woman, Charlize Theron, showcasing her most recent work Atomic Blonde, which dropped in theaters this week finally and her involvement in Fate of the Furious and one of […]

‘Atomic Blonde’ Is A Cool Killer With Too Much Filler (Movie Review)

Here’s an action film that I couldn’t help but be underwhelmed by, given its potential. Atomic Blonde features Charlize Theron as a top-level spy in an action movie from David Leitch, co-director of John Wick. The film oozes with style (neon glow and an 80s new wave soundtrack) and features an array of solid actors […]

The Mummy Unwraps The Bandages of a Dark Monster Universe (Movie Review)

Cruise ‘Mummy’ Threatens Dark Universe (Movie Review)

Everyone was where they need to be and all of the objects were in place, and yet, when attempting to conjure up success, The Mummy did not rise. While I was wrapped up in anticipation for a new take on The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, everything seemed to unravel rather quickly as the film shambled […]

We are just a few weeks away from the release of The Mummy (AKA Cruise Mummy), starring Tom Cruise and serving as the introduction to the newly dubbed “Dark Universe“.

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, […]

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Crashes In Third Place (Movie Review)

Star Trek Beyond promises us one thing going in, a departure from J. J.

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 […]

Kingsman: The Secret Service (Blu-ray Review)

The Spy Who Loved Me is one of my favorite James Bond movies.  It is easily the best of the Roger Moore entries, but also a fine example of how strong the more cinematically over-the-top versions of the world famous British spy can be.  Kingsman: The Secret Service essentially functions as one of the more […]

Kingsman The Secret Service Thrills and Titillates (Movie Review)

After last week’s dismal screening of Jupiter Ascending I was just about ready to write the remainder of this month off from both attending and reviewing movies.  My experience with that film was that bad.  I was embarrassed by that $175 million dollar effort, even though I really had nothing to do with it.  However, […]
