True Detective: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray Review)

They say lightning doesn’t strike twice, but I beg to differ…at least in the world of entertainment.  When we’re talking about Hollywood I can think of many second films in a franchise that are just as good as their predecessors with obvious examples being classics such as The Godfather Part II, Star Wars: The Empire […]

‘Lone Survivor’ Wants To Make Every Bullet Count (Movie Review)

Devotion can be a tricky thing.  Lone Survivor is ostensibly an action film, but because of its source material and the man who lived the experience, the effort that went into making this film seems to have been heavily concentrated on making it have the feel of an “important” story, just as much as a […]

Gerard’s Worst Films of 2012

This worst-of list will not be as long as my other Top 10 lists due to the fact that some films that were downright unwatchable weren’t even watched all the way through. I decided not to subject myself to them, so some of these selections will probably just get “honorable worst-of” mentions instead, or a […]

‘Savages’ Is a B-Movie With Only So Much Bite

In theory, I should have been fairly excited about a gritty, R-rated thriller from director Oliver Stone.  After Stone’s last set of films, which includes Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, W., and World Trade Center, Savages seems like the kind of film that would bring him back to the edgy kind of filmmaking once utilized […]

Battleship (Movie Review): Iron Man Meets John Carter in the Navy

When I first heard they were making a live adaptation of the infamous Parker Bros. (now owned by Hasbro since 1991) game, Battleship, I thought oh my, what a huge naval epic it could be.  The possibilities were endless, in my opinion.  A grand scale naval adventure hasn’t seen success on the silver screen in […]

‘Battleship’: The Most Explosive Board Game Of The Year

The trickiest thing about writing a review for Battleship, the film based on the popular board game, which now pits Tim Riggins of Mars against a fleet of aliens that challenge the Navy to deadly war games…or something, is capturing why I did not really care for the film as much as I did other, […]

‘John Carter’ – Get Your Ass To Mars

Well I had fun with this space jam.  It must be tough for guys like James Cameron, George Lucas, or in this case – director Andrew Stanton, who work years on end to deliver a passion project of theirs, but have so much negative thought put into whether it will succeed or not based on […]
