War Dogs (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I wasn’t able to get to War Dogs this past summer when it released to theaters.  And I was interested in checking it out theatrically.  There were a lot of factors that appealed to me.  Miles Teller and Jonah Hill seemed like a natural and exciting team up.  Todd Phillips is also a pretty good […]

Lord Of ‘War Dogs’ (Movie Review)

Director Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Old School) has been angling for a film like War Dogs the same way Oscar winner Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) angled for The Big Short. Both have not been above making goofy bro comedies, but they obviously have other ideas. McKay was met with plenty of acclaim for tackling […]

The Hangover Part III Ends On Blu-ray This October

Home Entertainment.  The Blu-ray Combo Pack and 2-disc DVD Special Edition includes exclusive behind-the-scenes content and outrageous interviews […]

‘Hangover 3’: The Legend Of Chow’s Gold (Movie Review)

The Hangover franchise is one of the best examples of diminishing returns.  The first film in the series was a big success and generally well liked.  Part II presented the same story in a different location, but had enough goodwill to make it a success anyway.  Time has not been kind to Part II, as […]

Different’s Not Always Good: The Hangover Part III (Movie Review)

Let’s see…where did we last leave off?  Oh yeah!  When we last saw the Wolf Pack, Alan (Zach Galifianakis) had just surprised Dr. Stu (Ed Helms), I mean the dentist, with Mike Tyson at his Thailand wedding (read all about the good times here and here if you need a quick refresher).  Now I don’t […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Worst Films of 2012

This is not really a post of joy, but every year does see the release of films that are just not good.  I do not try to seek out these films, with the majority being ones that I did think could have redeemable elements, but that just wasn’t the case here.  This list contains what […]

Way Too Much Monkey Business In ‘Project X’

I tend to dislike the reviews where I feel like I have to write about the qualifiers needed to justify where I am coming from on certain films.  Project X, for example, is a film that is seemingly designed to be enjoyed by the teenage boy crowd, despite being an incredibly hard-R rated film full […]

‘Project X’: Instruments of Destruction (Movie Review)

I had many mixed feelings going into Project X this past Tuesday evening.  Sure, I thought.  It looks like a wild and raunchy, good ole time, but where will the story ultimately go?  Being not a person to partake in such wild festivities myself in real life, I knew I would only be able to […]

The Hangover Part II (Blu-ray Review)

Unbeknown to anyone else beside myself, at the beginning of the year I decided there were a total of three movies I was really looking forward to in 2011.  The first, not a critic’s choice by any means, is the Independence Day sequel (joking), Battle: Los Angeles.  Unlike the majority of critics, I was able to […]

Hangover 2: The Wolf Pack Strikes Back

Unbeknown to anyone else besides myself, at the beginning of the year I decided there were a total of three movies I was really looking forward to in 2011.  The first, not a critics choice by any means, has already came and went.   Of course, I’m talking about the Independence Day sequel (joking),  Battle: Los […]

Due Date (Blu-ray Review)

I suppose it can be construed that Director Todd Phillips took on this project to give himself some much needed distance from his previous surprise hit (The Hangover) before tackling his next project, The Hangover 2 (currently in production).  I could completely understand if this was true and in all honesty, I would not blame […]

You Can Pass Due Date & Make It Up Later

So I guess I was expecting better here. I did not necessarily expect to see a comedy classic in the making, but I did think that the talent involved in this film would have provided me with a consistently entertaining movie. Instead, what I observed was a film that was only occasionally very funny. I […]

Don’t Miss The ‘Due Date’

The Hangover: Extreme Edition (Blu-ray Review)

The Hangover was one of those movies that came out at the P-E-R-F-E-C-T time in my life.  We all kind of have these back-stories with how we dealt with times of stress and the real life antidotes that helped us persevere through the seemingly impossible feats.  For me, that was the summer of 2009.  It […]

Today’s the Day!…The Hangover on Blu-ray!

I have been waiting for this day for a long time!  Today…officially dubbed “The National Hangover Day”…is the day Blu-ray fans get to see the #1 R-rated comedy of all-time in glorious High-Definition.  I can’t imagine a better way to experience The Hangover than on the Blu-ray format.  Amazon still has this title for the ridiculous low […]

Blu-ray Deal of the Deal: The Hangover $17.99

We haven’t had any posted deals in awhile so that’s why when I stumbled upon this deal I just had to post it up.  Leave it to Amazon to have such an unbelievable low pre-order price on what can easily be called one of the best movies of the year.  Yep, that’s right folks.  The […]
