Hail Caesar In ‘War For The Planet Of The Apes’ (Movie Review)

I remember feeling fairly alone in my anticipation for 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The franchise had lain dormant since Tim Burton’s 2001 remake, and the idea of a prequel/reboot didn’t seem to build into genuine anticipation for many. Regardless, the film was a surprise hit, leading to the massive critical and […]

Knights Of Badassdom (Blu-ray Review)

Knights of Badassdom is not so much of a good premise gone bad, as much as it just falls into the realm of instantly forgettable.  The idea of putting LARP-ers (Live Action Role Players) into a very real scenario, where they must fend off actual fantasy beasts, is a solid one, but finding the right […]

Prepare Thyself for KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM This April

Knights of Badassdom has all the makings of a fun cult comedy.  I have heard of issues with this film in regards to behind-the-scenes tinkering, but my curiosity remains.  I missed out on the limited release of this film, so the upcoming Blu-ray release will finally be my way into checking out this film revolving […]

Wow!  You don’t know how long I’ve been patiently waiting for Knights of Badassdom to be released!  I first met Joe Lynch at the premiere of Chillerama at Comic-Con 2011 along with his cohorts Adam Green and Tim Sullivan.  The very next day I talked to the man again at the press only conference for […]

ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH CRASH LANDS ON BLU-RAY THIS JUNE

On June 4th Escape from Planet Earth makes its Blu-ray debut.  I did not catch this film in theaters and I do not believe I have actually seen a recent animated film in theaters so far this year. It is still early, of course, with Monster’s University and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 […]

That Thing You Do! (Blu-ray Review)

That Thing You Do! was the directorial debut of Tom Hanks from back in 1996 and it is still a joy to watch.  The film is a light-hearted look at a fictional band that became a one-hit wonder sensation during a summer in the 60s.  The film features a simple, but very accessible story, fun […]

This April Do ‘That Thing You Do’ On Blu

Well it’s about time!  As much as I like getting to see big blockbusters on Blu-ray for their awesome sound and video quality, and as much as I like to see old classics get their restored treatment on Blu-ray, there are still a good number of more modern films that have yet to make their […]
