I’m not last, but posting the day after Aaron Neuwirth is a tough act to follow. He’s the most informed of us here and is able to see an impressive amount of films released in a given year. For me personally, 2018 felt like I didn’t see as much as I would have liked to […]

Brian’s Top 10 “Brian” Films of 2018!

Every year this Top 10 movie list gets harder and harder to write.  As the years go by I get the chance to see fewer and fewer movies theatrically.  Because of work, life and other commitments I feel like I’m constantly trying to play catch up and/or seeing most films some 3-4 months after they […]

School Daze – 30th Anniversary (Blu-ray Review)

Director Spike Lee is having a great 2018, even if it means putting a spotlight on the same issues he’s been tackling since he began as a filmmaker. With BlacKkKlansman on its way to (hopefully) earning its fair share of awards, the director’s previous joins continue to make their way to HD formats slowly. A […]

Touched with Fire (Blu-ray Review)

I’m not really big on movies that focus on mental illness.  Most of them usually end up being cripplingly sad or fraught with turmoil throughout the entire film.  When I go to a movie I like to be lifted up in some way.  Another thing is that this film focuses on the lives of two […]

THE SPIKE LEE JOINT COLLECTION Coming To Blu-ray!

This doesn’t make up for Oldboy, but alas someone is finally digging into Spike Lee’s back catalog of films.  And, funny enough, I now need to write a new piece for next week’s ‘Wishlist’ article as it was going to be for The 25th Hour which now sees a release date of June 10!  It also […]

Oldboy – 2013 (Blu-ray Review)

Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy from 2003 is one of my favorite films of all time.  It came highly recommended to me by my good friend John Rocha.  He refused to tell me as much as possible about the plot and didn’t want to discuss anything aside from it being “terrific” until I saw it.  And when […]

Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’ Is About As Flavorless As Bad Dumplings (Movie Review)

It can be hard to try and critique a film, when it comes to addressing one that uses the basis of another film that one already loves.  It is hard to critique a film at any time really, as it requires a certain amount of consideration that really drags in all of what it going […]

Spike Lee’s OLDBOY Red-Band Trailer Debut

Here’s a film that I have been very curious about.  Spike Lee putting his own spin on the Oldboy story is certainly something I would not have suspected to come along initially (although more likely than the supposed idea of Will Smith and Steven Spielberg joining forces to provide their take).  As a huge fan […]
