The Dead Don’t Die (Blu-ray Review)

For all the talk of Jim Jarmusch as a pioneer of independent cinema, there’s a lot of fun to be had in speaking about the acclaimed director as a more than capable genre filmmaker. The Dead Don’t Die finds Jarmusch in a humorous mood, while bringing audiences a star-studded zombie movie. This follows other genre […]

 Here we are with the home video release of the biggest movie in the world of all time, Avengers: Endgame. Perhaps you’ve heard of it? That one that followed up the previous years’ giant film with a giant cliffhanger and brought together all of the major superheroes on screen together? No, not Justice League. Okay, […]

‘The Dead Don’t Die’… And Neither Does Comedy! (Movie Review)

The Dead Don’t Die… this movie came out of nowhere for me. This was not a highly anticipated film for me in the slightest. However, the film was a nice change of pace from the usual comic book flick, big action movie, or occasional remake that usually clutters the Summer box office. The Dead Don’t Die is […]

Love, Brandon: Top 10 Films Of 2018

I’m not last, but posting the day after Aaron Neuwirth is a tough act to follow. He’s the most informed of us here and is able to see an impressive amount of films released in a given year. For me personally, 2018 felt like I didn’t see as much as I would have liked to […]

Isle of Dogs (Blu-ray Review)

Wes Anderson has built a filmography full of work that could never be mistaken for another filmmaker, and he’s managed to take ambitious chances as well. That said, Isle of Dogs feels like a notable departure from Anderson’s comfort zone. Beyond being another stop-motion animated effort, the use of Japanese culture and a healthy dose […]

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.
