The Year of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” Continues In Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Movie Review)

First there was Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass in 2010 and then there was Kingsman: The Secret Service (Aaron Neuwirth’s review of it all here and mine) in 2014.  Needless to say I’m a big fan of both.   Now we have a September 22nd sequel titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  This is one film I can’t say […]

Kingsman Royale (Movie Review)

2015’s Kingsman: The Secret Service was a sleeper hit that reveled in being a Roger Moore-era Bond flick wrapped in modern sensibilities and kinetic, R-rated violence. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is less successful because it feels more like an attempt to hold onto what emotional strengths worked the first time around. Perhaps if this movie […]

SDCC 2017: Kingsman The Golden Circle

An Archer-Kingsman crossover was something that never really crossed my mind, but it makes perfect sense, especially after seeing it in action. The opening clip began with Eggsy running on rooftops and leaping from building to building, only it was in animated form. Very similar to the style of Archer. Eggsy finally arrives at Kingsman, but […]

Sing (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio most known for those darn Minions.  Actually, I enjoy the Despicable Me films, its just the one that focused on the little side characters was a giant waste of time (Though, I’m sure those seven and under probably loved it).  While that’s the flagship, they’ve actually carved quite a remarkable […]

Gregg’s Best and Worst Films of 2016

It was certainly a turbulent year in the entertainment business as 2016 saw the passing of numerous stars. Bowie left us, then Alan Rickman and the list went on with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds passing just days apart. While they have moved on to whatever the next stage may bring, we will always have […]

Gregg’s Top 10 Blu-rays of 2016

It’s been a while since I amassed a favorite Blu-rays of the the year list. There was one final title I wanted to check out before concocting my ten favorites. I enjoyed Suicide Squad in the theater earlier this year, but just in case I enjoyed it even more after a second viewing, I had […]

Eddie The Eagle (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I can assure you that before I opened my door to the UPS man delivering a package from Fox, I knew absolutely nothing about Eddie the Eagle other than Aaaron Neuwirth reviewed the regular Blu-ray version of it over here.  I asked several friends via text if they ever saw this film or knew anything […]

Eddie The Eagle (Blu-ray Review)

There is nothing extraordinary about Eddie the Eagle and that seems completely fitting for the film that tells the story of an earnest young man who simply had a dream. We see lots of sports movies and some approach the genre with fresh eyes, while others revel in clichés. Given the accomplishments of the real […]

Fly: Songs Inspired by the film Eddie the Eagle (Soundtrack Review)

I really can’t see how anyone could possibly listen to this album and NOT be compelled to take on the world!  It really doesn’t hold back on the positivity which makes it the best kind of music to wake up to on a Monday morning.  I’m sure there are some people who might find songs […]

Tom Hardy Makes A ‘Legend’ For Himself (Movie Review)

I strolled into Monday night’s press screening of the British crime thriller Legend armed with only two bits of information, Tom Hardy was the leading man and there was two of him.  I honestly knew nothing more than that having never even checked out the film’s trailer nor researched it beforehand like I usually do.

Kingsman: The Secret Service (Blu-ray Review)

The Spy Who Loved Me is one of my favorite James Bond movies.  It is easily the best of the Roger Moore entries, but also a fine example of how strong the more cinematically over-the-top versions of the world famous British spy can be.  Kingsman: The Secret Service essentially functions as one of the more […]

Kingsman The Secret Service Thrills and Titillates (Movie Review)

After last week’s dismal screening of Jupiter Ascending I was just about ready to write the remainder of this month off from both attending and reviewing movies.  My experience with that film was that bad.  I was embarrassed by that $175 million dollar effort, even though I really had nothing to do with it.  However, […]
