Hail, Caesar! (Blu-ray Review)

While they are among the most acclaimed modern filmmakers of today, one of the criticisms leveled at Joel and Ethan Coen is how mean they are to their characters. There may be truth in that, but Hail, Caesar! certainly says a lot about their love for the movies. Set in the 1950s, the Golden Age […]

I was super excited to get the opportunity to chat with the brains behind No Escape!  The director/writer John Dowdle and co-writer Drew Dowdle were so awesome and easy to talk to!  It’s always great to talk with filmmakers who have a genuine passion for what they do!  I really enjoyed this movie!  Just when […]

‘Unbroken’ Is An Epic Story In A Decent Film (Movie Review)

On the surface, Unbroken has everything needed to not only be a surefire hit for audiences and critics of a certain generation, but also one that could seemingly have awards just handed over to it.  This is a film adaptation of a best-selling and well-reviewed novel based around the true story of a former Olympic […]

You Betcha This Year’s Most Emmy Nominated Miniseries, Fargo Season 1, Is On Blu-ray This October

Fargo is a favorite movie of mine. A TV show based on Fargo could have been a disaster, but FX pulled through to deliver one of the best TV seasons of recent years. I am excited for this release: The first instalment of Fargo features an all-new “true crime” story and follows a new case and new characters, all […]

Fargo (Blu-ray Review)

Crossing another feature off my list of modern classics that are favorite films mine, which I have now written a review for, Fargo has returned to Blu-ray once again, with a new remastered transfer.  This Oscar-winning Coen Brothers film has had its share of releases in the past and even if there is still bound […]

Cult Favorite “Fargo” Arrives Remastered on Blu-ray April 1

Not sure how much I can say about Fargo, beyond just, “It’s brilliant”, but here it goes.  Fargo was one of the best films of the 90s, one of my favorite films ever, and is full of great performances, direction, and dark humor.  It is a fantastic film and now it is getting an all […]

INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS arrives on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital This March

One of my favorite films of 2013 and another great film from Joel and Ethan Coen, Inside Llewyn Davis is a fantastic film about the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961.  That premise may not automatically interest everyone, but the joy of a Coen brothers film is the way they find ways to make brilliant films […]

Brian White’s Indisputable Heavyweight ‘Top 10 Films of 2013’

The calendar year of 2013 was a tough one for me in the film department.  However, unlike my recent Top 10 Blu-ray list over here, where I struggled to even find ten Blu-rays that I really really liked in 2013 (only leaving off Cloud Atlas), I find myself faced with a smorgasbord of films that […]

Hold Onto Your Potatoes…Laney Loves Her Time ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ (Movie Review)

Once again and without disappointment, the Coen brothers showcase their talent for delivering an impeccably honest journey of life affirmation as told by Inside Llewyn Davis. Just as important, and equally as impressive, is T Bone Burnett’s contribution to the soundtrack. The film travels the same avenue as O Brother, Where Art Thou in that […]

‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ There Is A Man, A Guitar, And A Cat (Movie Review)

At times it can be hard to elaborate on why regard can be put so high on certain films.  Without tip-toeing around it, I think Inside Llewyn Davis is an incredibly well-made, well-acted, fantastically strange film that receives the highest rating from me, because I do not know what could be made different to have […]

The Big Lebowski Limited Edition Blu-ray is Coming August 16!

  From the Academy Award-winning Coen brothers, The Big Lebowski is a hilariously quirky comedy about bowling, a severed toe, White Russians and a guy named…The Dude.  Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski doesn’t want any drama in his life…heck, he can’t even be bothered with a job.  But, he must embark on a quest with his […]

Coen Brothers Replace The Duke with The Dude and Test His ‘True Grit’

One of the running themes in many films directed by the Coen brothers (Fargo, No Country for Old Men) has revolved around the idea that they do not seem to like their characters (there is also another running gag that their characters are mostly, for lack of a better word, dumb).  As much as we […]
