The Boss Baby (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Boss Baby wanted in on some of that Zootopia cash in 2017. The trailer was one of those that was paired with Rogue One: A Star War Story and also hooked on to Sing! Yeah, those are some really successful movies that also had an attendance of young children and families. While it was […]

‘The Boss Baby’ Deserves A Time Out (Movie Review)

He’s a boss and a baby. He’s a Boss Baby. The Boss Baby pitch meeting could not have been much simpler than that, but I guess that wouldn’t give credit to the original children’s picture book by Marla Frazee. Of course, that book is only 36 pages (and I’m sure The Bossier Baby isn’t much […]

The Great Gatsby (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Before visiting The Great Gatsby theatrically, I strongly held the opinion that this was either going to be one of those films you’d love or you’d hate with absolutely no middle ground in the equation.  I know I found myself seriously conflicted in how I felt about it for months before I saw it.  The first trailer did […]

‘Labor Day’ Is Not Much Of A Holiday Movie (Movie Review)

It seemed pretty telling of the quality to me that a film by acclaimed director Jason Reitman would be practically swept under the rug, given its low profile release at the end of January, but I had a desire to see it anyway.  I have been a fan of Reitman’s previous films (including Juno, Up […]

Before visiting The Great Gatsby theatrically this spring, I strongly held the opinion that this was either going to be one of those films you’d love or you’d hate with uncompromising passion, no middle ground in the equation.  I know I found myself seriously conflicted in how I felt about it for months before I saw […]

Brian White’s Top 5 Films of 2013 So Far…And A Quick Look Ahead

I’ve never really wrote a piece like this before on the site so early in the year as its usually something I step aside and graciously hand the reigns over to our “Godfather” of theatrical movie reviews, Mr. Aaron Neuwirth, to cover.  However, most recently I’ve become very concerned after I compiled and examined the […]

The Great Production Values Highlight ‘The Great Gatsby’ (Movie Review)

A Baz Luhrmann-directed adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s acclaimed novel “The Great Gatsby” is either the summer blockbuster for everyone else or the obscure one that joins the fold of all the others.  Everyone that has gotten their fill of superheroes, disaster films, alien invasions, and other high concept ideas, now has the option of […]

The Irresistible ‘Great Gatsby’ (Movie Review)

Before entering Tuesday evening’s press screening of The Great Gatsby, I strongly held the opinion that this was either going to be one of those films you’d love or you’d hate with uncompromising passion, no middle ground in the equation.  I know I found myself seriously conflicted in how I felt about it these past […]

While I realize that many people didn’t like Spiderman 3, this is still a great deal for all three Spiderman Blu-rays.  Personally, I loved the first two and liked the third and I think most people can agree that Spiderman 2 was one of the best (if not the best) superhero movies ever made.  All […]

Spider-Man Gets Reborn!

Perhaps in one of the biggest stories of yesterday we learn that plans for a Spider-Man 4 installment featuring the dream team duo of Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire have been scrapped.  Rumors speculate either a rushed production schedule or a disagreement over the film’s next villian as the primary cause for the duo’s separation […]

‘Brothers’ Slow But Powerful

With an all-star cast of Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal, how can you go wrong?  Well, let’s stop right there because Everybody’s Fine sported the likes of Robert De Niro, Kate Beckinsale and Drew Barrymore and that movie was a sloth-like downer.  Fortunately, the same does not hold true for Brothers which made […]
