Leave it to director Steven Spielberg to once again turn a history lesson into an invigorating character study with potent relevance.

Brandon’s Blu-ray Wishlist For 2018!

Once again, the time of year has come upon us; the end of the Blu-ray release year. I’m a little later than prior years on this and its because the announcement to release window is becoming incredible short.

Keeping in tune with the current 80’s theme, but adding a little humor to the mix (I think we all need it today!) it felt like time to celebrate cinema with a little raunchy in the reels – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!  For today’s selection we’re getting rid of political correctness, throwing caution to […]

Inferno (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Da Vinci Code book was one of those that come around every so often that make non-readers take note of and spend time doing something they normally wouldn’t…they READ.  Yes, I’m one of those suckers too.  While I love to read I often have this problem in life called no time.  By the time I […]

Sully (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Who didn’t know the story of Captain Chesley Sullenberger?  His courageous landing on the Hudson River was one of the biggest stories when the year flipped over to 2009.  Its crazy to think that its going to be eight years ago next month.  Its almost like its fresh on the brain.  As with all things […]

‘Inferno’ Is Upon Hanks (Movie Review)

Following the sadly underseen Rush and the underwhelming In The Heart of the Sea, director Ron Howard returns to his moneymaking Robert Langdon film series with Inferno, based on the novel by Dan Brown. Tom Hanks is back too, continuing to portray his boorish, know-it-all character (although the hair is kept much more in check […]

‘Sully’ Is A Non-Essential Look At Heroism (Movie Review)

It can be tough to imagine why Sully is a film that needs to be seen. Working as a dramatization of an event that took place not too long ago, it would appear as if audiences already have a good handle on what took place with the “Miracle on the Hudson”. However, it appears director […]

‘A Hologram For The King’ Aptly Ambles Through The Desert (Movie Review)

Well that was better than expected. Not that marketing should be a factor in a review, but the trailer for A Hologram for the King presented a random comedy-drama starring Tom Hanks, arriving outside of awards season with little to suggest something worthwhile. Sure, the film tells a seemingly trite story of a white man […]
