Doctor Strange (Blu-ray Review)

Doctor Strange is a Marvel comics character I was fully aware of, knew what he looked like, kinda understood his powers and the like, but knew not much of and backreading or the details of him.  Couldn’t tell you his villains or allies or big arcs he went through.  I believe I did see that […]

Doctor Strange is Magically Entertaining (Movie Review)

Doctor Strange is actually one Marvel comics movie I was not looking forward to.  Truth be told I’ve never been a fan of the comic book character.  He always reminded me too much of Tony Stark in the looks department.  Coupled with the fact that I’m not a huge Benedict Cumberbatch fan and I’m already […]

‘Doctor Strange’ And The Sorcerer Supreme’s Infinity Stone (Movie Review)

It should be exciting for Marvel to invite audiences to the wizarding world of Doctor Strange. Armed with another strong cast and the ability to produce some fantastic visuals that stand out in a way that’s uncharacteristically inventive for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this 14th entry in the series that began with Iron Man back in 2008 at […]

A Bigger Splash (Blu-ray Review)

Putting a couple Oscar nominees and two more talented performers in a film structured like a 4-person play is one thing. Setting that film on a remote Italian island adds an extra layer. A Bigger Splash made a small splash at the box office this past spring, but won over many critics. Now this provocative […]

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 […]

Trainwreck — Unrated Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Amy Schumer has likely had many of her comedy dreams come true this year. She won an Emmy for her work on Inside Amy Schumer, went on a high profile comedy tour, which included a live performance at the Apollo Theater that turned into an HBO special directed by Chris Rock and wrote and starred […]

NEW Trailers & Poster for Universal Pictures’ Trainwreck, starring Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has proven to be a unique comic voice in the past few years, given her rise in popularity, which includes her very funny and risque Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer.  Now she has teamed up with director Judd Apatow for Trainwreck, a romantic comedy that very much looks like a film fitting of these […]

The Zero Theorem (Blu-ray Review)

Terry Gilliam returned to his realm of unique science fiction last year (or 2013 for some) with The Zero Theorem.  Many want to believe this is the third part in some sort of trilogy that include Gilliam’s earlier works of Brazil and 12 Monkeys.  12 Monkeys, by the way, is one of my most cherished […]

Brandon’s Top 14 Films Of The Year That Was 2014

All right, its my turn.  Up front, there’s a few movies I didn’t get to.  I haven’t been able to get out and see Whiplash yet.  Selma and Inherent Vice don’t open here in my fair city until the year reads 2015.  In 2014, my little bundle of wonderful daughter was born, so like 2012 […]

Snowpiercer (Blu-ray Review)

I enjoy science fiction stories quite a bit.  Whether it ranges from plausible ideas regarding the future of our current society or to things a bit more abstract, I love seeing creativity on display.  This especially goes for sci-fi films that allow a large number of filmmakers, actors, production designers, etc., to develop worlds, stories, […]

Gilliam Tries His Best To Construct ‘The Zero Theorem’ (Movie Review)

Director Terry Gilliam falls into the category of filmmakers that make movies that fit entirely into their own genres.  Quentin Tarantino makes Tarantino movies rather than straight comedies or action movies.  Tim Burton used to not really make horror or fantasy films, but instead he made Tim Burton films (hopefully he gets back to that […]

Only Lovers Left Alive (Blu-ray Review)

It makes a lot of sense that indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch has finally made a film about vampires.  He practically is one, given his height, slender and pale appearance, white hair, and the fact that he only pops up every so often to release a film into the night for the masses to find.  The […]
