I’ve been away on a vacation these last couple of weeks so the indie factor has gotten a tad harder to keep up with (nobody does smaller films in volume like LA!), but I have seen some studio fare and wanted to share some cinematical views.  For this particular article I’m delving into big budget […]

The Lost City of Z (Blu-ray Review)

Based on the look of this film, it would be no surprise to learn how difficult it was to make The Lost City of Z. I’m not speaking of just the shots of a wooden raft traveling down the Amazon River. No, it’s the look on the faces of these actors, which displays more than what […]

The Perks Of Being A ‘Spider-Man’ (Movie Review)

There’s a sequence in the very enjoyable Spider-Man: Homecoming where Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is in pursuit of a van and taking shortcuts through the backyards of a neighborhood. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off so clearly inspired the scene that director Jon Watts (Cop Car) even shows a clip from that film playing on a TV in […]

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Mixes Things Up & Spins A Fresh, New Web of Tales (Movie Review)

I think I’m one of the few people in the world who liked the third Sam Raimi Spider-Man film and you better believe it that I was bummed when the fourth in the series was nixed.  However, I did also adore Andrew Garfield as the next incarnation of Spider-Man and had high hopes for how […]

Child’s Play – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

The 1980s was a decade that offered many new iconic horror villains and continued the lore and mythology of ones introduced in the 1970s.  It was a kind of resurgence of horror characters, harkening  back to the days of the Universal monsters back in the 1940s.  At the tail end of the decade we were […]

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Thrills Divisionally (Movie Review)

I guess you could say with the exception of Rogue One and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War is amongst my most anticipated films of the year.  Many of my peers tell me that’s pretty sad being a critic and a screenwriter by night trying to be taken seriously, but I […]

TnT Presents ‘Child’s Play’ & ‘A Christmas Treat’ (Blu-ray/DVD Review)

This one is sort of an abnormal review.  Not only is it a hybrid, a review coverage of both a Blu-ray and DVD, but also it’s a bit unorthodox the way in which I’m going about tackling this.  There’s no grading system employed here.  This one’s pure entertainment!  And let’s face it, there’s nothing new you […]
