‘Beauty And The Beast’ Has Humans Again, But Only Adds So Much (Movie Review)

With Disney currently raking in enough piles of money to put Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin to shame, it seemed like only a matter of time before audiences would get a live-action re-imagining of one of their modern classics. Beauty and the Beast is special for many and it represents a high water mark for the […]

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Hot on the heels of the original came the obvious sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire.  Since there’s, you know, multiple books in the series, anybody and everybody was expecting regardless of “how big” the first film would do.  With the sequel came a changing of the guard as Gary Ross stepped away from […]

The Hunger Games (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Following on the heels of Harry Potter and the Twilight films, The Hunger Games was the next in line to carry the torch of big time young adult novel adaptations turned blockbuster films.  This first film was expected to do well, but wound up taking in a massive box office haul, which not only was […]

‘Wild Card’ Is A Bust (Movie Review)

Jason Statham has plenty of talent.  Best known as an English tough guy, Statham may not have what some want to call range, but he does know how to direct his energy and inherent charisma into different shades of somewhat similar performances (the dichotomy between The Transporter and Crank is a perfect example).  It is […]

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’ Successfully Sparks The Beginning Of The End (Movie Review)

Here is another critic-proof blockbuster that happens to be an entry in a series I very much enjoy.  With movies that not only have a massive amount of hype, but are also a part of an ongoing franchise, there really is not much to lose when writing about them.  I am not going to focus […]

Transformers Age of Extinction (Blu-ray Review)

Transformers Age of Extinction, the fourth film in the Michael Bay Transformers franchise, is both a theatrical movie and a Blu-ray that I wanted nothing to do with.  The last two, minus seeing Megan Fox and her sexy thumbs in the second film, were absolute bowel movements in motion.  How many times can we see the same story repeated […]

Trans4mers: Continental Drift (Movie Review)

How does one approach reviewing a movie like Transformers: Age of Extinction?  It ultimately does not matter too much, as this Michael “Boom Boom” Bay-directed franchise has no real problem turning a profit, even while critics and a certain percentage of audiences chuck nothing but garbage its way.  This is the fourth installment of the […]

Transformers: Age of Extinction – The Bowel Movement (Movie Review)

Let it be known before we get started here that I wanted nothing to do with this fourth film in the Michael Bay Transformers franchise.  The last two, minus seeing Megan Fox and her clubbed thumbs in the second film, were absolute crud.  How many times can we see the same story repeated over and […]

Transformers 4 Gets A New Trailer, Poster, And More!

As we head closer and closer to what I am sure Michael “Boom Boom” Bay refers to as T-Day, more and more marketing materials are going to pop up to get people excited for yet another giant F-ing robots movie.  It is almost like we haven’t had much of a break, given the arrival of […]

A Duo From Way Back, ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’ Has Been Reimagined (Movie Review)

While I was never a big fan of The Smurfs, among other older cartoons that have since been turned into animated features, Peabody’s Improbable History, which was a part of The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show, was a series of skits that I always found entertaining.  I haven’t watched Peabody in years, but seeing this new […]

Catch The Fire of The Hunger Games on Blu-ray This March!

Wow!  I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally get the official word that Hunger Games: Catching Fire is just around the corner on the Blu-ray format with a release date of March 7th!  I can’t even recount all the times I tried to catch this one theatrically after missing the press screening in […]

‘Catching Fire’ Burns Down The Competition (Movie Review)

With Twilight having ended and The Hobbit being something of a different beast, there is little that The Hunger Games franchise currently has to compete with, in terms of popular book series being adapted into films.  Several others have come out recently (The Host, Beautiful Creatures, The Mortal Instruments, etc.), but none have found the […]

‘The Fifth Estate’ Has Plenty of Leaks (Movie Review)

It is almost funny how long I put off actually writing a review for The Fifth Estate, the Bill Condon-directed film, which adapts two different books that focus on the news-leaking website WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange.  The delay is not because I had a lot to consider, after seeing the film.  It is […]

‘Percy Jackson’ Is Back And He’s Brought A Sea Of Monsters (Movie Review)

Getting past the surprise that is this sequel existing to begin with, Percy Jackson is back with another adventure, revolving around a quest for the Golden Fleece.  For the record, I did actually find things to enjoy about Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.  It may have mainly been out of my spite […]
