I remember seeing trailers for Snitch like crazy during The Walking Dead on Sunday nights like crazy. Why? It had series star Jon Bernthal in the movie (Who was very popular when he was on the show). So, I guess they were hoping that would get people out to see it? But, lets not fool […]

Tammy (Blu-ray Review)

If there is one film that deservingly has the right and proudly should be able to give the middle finger write at box office pundits (that don’t write for Forbes), its Tammy.  This $20 million budgeted “one for me” film opening with a good $21 million opening weekend over 4th of July and because it […]

Ping Pong Summer (Blu-ray Review)

Coming of age comedies are something I can find myself being a sucker for if they can get the right in or hook for me.  As I grow older, it becomes more of a challenge to understand today’s youth because I’m not one of them and I don’t know what’s hip with the kids.  I must […]

Thelma & Louise 20th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Thelma and Louise celebrates its 20th Anniversary with this release and it still resonates with a lot of people to this day.
