Dumbo (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Dumbo marks the first of a handful of formerly classic Disney animated features to be having blustering new live action representations in 2019. This has been going on and building for a few years now, but 2019 could be the apex for just how many come out in a calendar year. Disney is probably going […]

I don’t even know if I need one hand to count the amount of films to give me as much excited being released on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray as Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman. With the 30th anniversary dropping next month, I had been hoping dearly that the film would get the chance (As well as its […]

Tim Burton Seems At Home With ‘Peculiar Children’ (Movie Review)

Perhaps it was just a matter of time until we saw director Tim Burton make a YA novel adaptation. It makes plenty of sense, as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children allows Burton to explore an entire household filled with loners, outcasts and “freaks”, as opposed to focusing on just one. Instead of following just […]

‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ Reflects An Improved Installment (Movie Review)

Perhaps it is the bitter taste still left in my mouth after having watched Tim Burton’s blockbuster that was Alice in Wonderland, but I have much warmer feelings towards this sequel, directed by James Bobin. Alice Through the Looking Glass may not be improving much on a sense of substance, but the level of design […]

There Are Colorful Lies In Burton’s ‘Big Eyes’ (Movie Review)

The chance to see a director switch gears and focus on something far separated from their previous work can be exciting.  As a Tim Burton fan, I do not fault him for making a lot of films that seem right up his alley.  That the recent output has not been as compelling as the films […]

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 […]

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Blu-ray Review)

This past summer, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter came and went through theaters without much of an impact.  It was not really a colossal failure, but it also did not do much to win over fans of a genre mash-up.  I read the book based on recommendations and obvious intrigue, due to the fact that it’s […]
