Toy Story of Terror! (Blu-ray Review)

Toy Story has seen a few spin-offs, one shots, and shorts featuring the show’s beloved characters over the years, and for Halloween 2013, Disney Pixar brought (most of) the crew back together for this short and spooky episode, Toy Story of Terror!  Can this feature find its way into the holiday “must sees” for families, […]

Bachelor Party (Blu-ray Review)

Every now and then you get a batch of older, similarly-themed films released on Blu-ray and Fox has recently delivered Weekend At Bernie’s (Reviewed HERE), Revenge of the Nerds (Reviewed HERE), and Bachelor Party, which I am reviewing now. This is the not-so-classic 80s party film, starring Tom Hanks mere months after finding success with […]

The Terminal (Blu-ray Review)

It’s a double whammy of sorts with TWO Steven Spielberg films being released on Blu-ray stateside for the first time. Coming up we will be reviewing The Terminal starring Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones and featuring an all-star ensemble cast with the likes of Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, and more. I’m sure we all have airport horror […]

Classics Comedies Celebrate Milestone Anniversaries On Blu-ray May 6th!

Three classic 80s comedies are finally strutting their way to Blu-ray at the beginning of May.  And they all wouldn’t be complete without horribly photoshopped and updated covers!  With the Norma Rae one last week and now these three, Fox looks to be making an art of terrible catalog title covers.  JUST USE THE FREAKIN’ […]

Saving Mr. Banks (Blu-ray Review)

Disney’s 2013 Oscar hopeful, Saving Mr. Banks has come to Blu-ray.  Boasting stellar performances by Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks, it stunned many when all it got nominated for was Best Original Score (Thomas Newman).  No matter, the film received plenty of other award recognition with some wins and was a rousing success at the […]

SAVING MR BANKS On Blu-ray March 18th!

Here’s one of those “Oscar rush” December movies that I missed out on back in December.  And as it ended up, this one didn’t quite make the noise some thought it might have come nomination time.  So, it looks like I made the right call on waiting for this one.  And I won’t have to […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2013 And Other Odds & Ends

It was a big year, but somehow I managed to put together a list of my favorite films of 2013.  I have to say that this was once again not the easiest list to put together.  Theatrically, I have seen 150+ films this year, so there were a lot of films to consider and figure […]

CAPTAIN PHILLIPS Ships Out On Blu-ray This January

As if Tom Hanks had more to prove, Captain Phillips gives him the chance to truly shine as a performer and deliver one of his best performances of all time.  Not to under credit the rest of the film, the Paul Greengrass docudrama was a fantastic film filled with tension and well worth checking out (my […]

‘Saving Mr. Banks’ From Disney’s Grasp (Movie Review)

It is not as though I am completely averse to movies with intentions of having good-natured stories or ones that thrive on inevitably sweet and heart-warming outcomes, but sometimes a premise and those involved can give you that idea and sway your interest elsewhere.  I have not seen Mary Poppins in many years and do […]

‘Captain Phillips’ On Somali Tides (Movie Review)

There are many great moments in Captain Phillips, the drama that recreates the true story of a hijacking of a container vessel by Somali pirates that took place in 2009, based on the memoir of Captain Richard Phillips.  One moment that comes to mind is a look that Tom Hanks gives during an early part […]

BIG’s Wish Is Granted – 25th Anniversary Edition arrives on Blu-ray DVD Combo Pack This December

Given that Tom Hanks has a couple films coming out this fall, might as well put out one of his classics as well, so here we have the 25th Anniversary edition of Big on Blu-ray.  Big is one of those films that I love to watch, whenever I see it on somewhere.  It features a […]

Cloud Atlas (Blu-ray Review)

Ever see something so confusing that looks so mind-bending that you just had to see it with your own eyes despite what your better judgment and gut told you?  Well, that’s exactly how I felt about Cloud Atlas and its many bizarre, but very bold and ambitious trailers out there.  Much like the story within […]

That Thing You Do! (Blu-ray Review)

That Thing You Do! was the directorial debut of Tom Hanks from back in 1996 and it is still a joy to watch.  The film is a light-hearted look at a fictional band that became a one-hit wonder sensation during a summer in the 60s.  The film features a simple, but very accessible story, fun […]

This April Do ‘That Thing You Do’ On Blu

Well it’s about time!  As much as I like getting to see big blockbusters on Blu-ray for their awesome sound and video quality, and as much as I like to see old classics get their restored treatment on Blu-ray, there are still a good number of more modern films that have yet to make their […]

‘Cloud Atlas’ Presents A Sextet Like No Other

For all the sequels and blockbuster we have gotten this year, an ambitious, high-budgeted, semi-independent film has certainly tried to push itself to the top as well.  Cloud Atlas is one of the more unique films I have seen this year, as it not only swaps between six different storylines, but six different time periods, […]
