The Expendables 3 (Blu-ray Review)

Way back when I wrote my theatrical review of The Expendables 3 I talked about how I initially promised myself I would have nothing to do with this movie after I learned about the abysmal PG-13 rating the filmmakers trimmed it down to be to comply with requirements of the much feared MPAA in order to get […]

The Expendables 3: Rocky Balboa vs. Sgt. Martin Riggs (Movie Review)

This is the one movie I promised myself I would have nothing to do with after I learned about the abysmal PG-13 rating the filmmakers trimmed it down to be to comply with requirements of the much feared MPAA in order to get it out to a wider audience (more about that later).  If it […]

‘The Expendables 3’: Cheap, Chopped, And Cheesy (Movie Review)

At this point in the Expendables franchise, it seems apparent that there is little understanding as to how to really deliver on what could make these films true action delights.  The story means little to me in these films, the presence of all the big name action heroes is more important than their acting, but […]

Brandon’s Blu-ray Wishlist – July 18, 2014

Did you miss me?  No?  Well eff you too, pal!  Haha.  Like it or not, I’m back.  I had only planned to take one week off and it wound up being too (not by design).  For the next 5 weeks we’re going to be doing a ‘Countdown To EXPENDABLES III’ with the Wishlist.  Each week […]

Grudge Match (Blu-ray Review)

First you had the team ups of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and now comes the epic team up of Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro in the comedy-actioner Grudge Match. I missed this in theaters but thought the trailer and marketing materials were hilarious. I was bummed out that it was PG-13 and was even more […]

Fight It Out With ‘Grudge Match’ on Blu-ray This April!

Honestly, when this came out theatrically last year, I wanted nothing to do with it really.  Then, surprisingly, mostly positive reviews poured in.  I kind of felt like it’s a spoof on the Rocky franchise as well as Raging Bull, two legendary boxing sagas, so that’s kind of why I avoided it.  But that’s childish, right?

Rocky Heavyweight Collection (Blu-ray Review)

When I first got word of this new Blu-ray box set, Rocky Heavyweight Collection, and its eligibility up for review, I thought long and hard to myself.  Do I have the strength to endure throughout this review, but not only that, can I do the Blu-ray box set justice?  The Rocky franchise contains some of […]

‘Rocky Heavyweight Collection’ Blu-ray Giveaway Contest!

We have given away some pretty big Blu-ray prizes here on the site over the years, but nothing compares in my opinion to what’s up for grabs in today’s BIG announcement.  When I think of America, pride in my country and the ability to rise up against all odds and become the greatest you possibly […]

Go The Distance With The Rocky Heavyweight Collection on Blu-ray!

Let’s face it, besides the Aliens box set years ago and the Universal Monsters one, in my opinion this may be one the greatest Blu-ray packages ever assembled, even though it’s repackage (although with a new transfer on the first film) of an earlier set.  One may expect me to say that of the Star […]

Escape Plan (Blu-ray Review)

Let’s face it.  Escape Plan is the tag team hardcore action moviegoers of my generation have been dying to see happen on the big screen ever since the big guns of the 80’s.  With the exception of Arnold’s brief scenes in The Expendables series, Escape Plan truly marks the first time Sylvester Stallone and Arnold […]

Stallone and Schwarzenegger Devise an ‘Escape Plan’ on Blu-ray

I feel like a broken record as of late when posting these announcements, but here is yet another flick that I regrettably missed in the theaters and have been anxiously awaiting for its Blu-ray release ever since.  I could have made it to see it in the theaters, but by the time I was free […]

Gobble Up ‘Homefront’ This Thanksgiving Dinner (Movie Review)

When I first saw the trailer for 2013 action thriller Homefront I thought that “could” be a good one considering in my book Jason Statham films are usually hit or miss.  It has a great cast to roast and boast about with the likes of James Franco, Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth, but perhaps one […]

Statham And Franco Face Off In ‘Homefront’ (Movie Review)

I love it when a movie really delivers on its promise.  Make no mistake, Homefront is a B-movie, but it is a damn good one.  It is the kind of action film that roots itself in the actions of characters and only feels gratuitous in the presentation of certain action scenes, but not in the […]

Nothing Wrong With Having A Good ‘Escape Plan’ (Movie Review)

While assembling a dream team of 80s/90s action stars in The Expendables films may not have panned out to be something as epic as I would have wanted, Escape Plan more or less captures the sense of fun that I like out of these sorts of films.  It may have to do with limiting the […]

Bullet To The Head (Blu-ray Review)

This past winter, America witnessed a resurgence of the classic action genre from the 80s and 90s.  In January and February, mainstays Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Jason Stathom all had new releases within weeks of each other.  To top it off, in March Olympus Has Fallen (a “Die Hard in the White […]
