Too Chatty Ad Astra Still Worth the Trip (Movie Review)

Quiet, contemplative sci-fi ranks as some of the best in the genre. For many, the entry point began with Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and has continued up to releases seen this decade. Gravity, The Martian and Arrival are stellar cinematic spectacles (Interstellar is pretty good too) concerned with the inner as well as […]

Batman Forever (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

As we close the book on the Tim Burton-helmed Batman era, we set sights on Joel Schumacher’s turn at “bat”. Batman Forever proved the biggest opening weekend and highest grossing live action film of 1995 (Only Toy Story earned more money). It was a pretty stunning bounce back for the caped crusader as it reinvented […]

Jason Bourne (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Jason Bourne needs no trailer to sell it.  Let’s be honest of that fact.  When Bourne Identity dropped in 2002 it rejuvenated the stale international spy franchises out there.  Just look at the style of what came next in the Bond series, Casino Royale, as living proof.  Suddenly Bourne-like movies infected our screens everywhere from the mainstream Mission Impossible franchise to even […]

Mechanic Resurrection (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Mechanic: Resurrection was a film I never made it to theatrically this year.  In fact I never even saw the first film in the series.  After reading Aaron Neuwirth’s review of the second one here I took away the fact that I don’t even need to visit the first film for continuity sake at all. […]

‘Mechanic: Resurrection’ Finds Statham Back In His Element (Movie Review)

It is one thing to write about awful Jason Statham films (War, Parker, In the Name of the King) or the terrific ones (Crank, Safe, The Bank Job), but how about the middle-of-the-road ones? Mechanic: Resurrection falls decidedly in the middle of the Brit action star’s best efforts and there is really nothing wrong or […]

Jason Bourne – The Asset That Won’t Go Down (Movie Review)

One of the main questions going into Jason Bourne was not in regards to the story, as these films largely fall into a template at this point. No, the question to ask is what random tool would Matt Damon’s amnesiac/super would spy use to beat down his challengers. There is an answer to that question […]

Fly: Songs Inspired by the film Eddie the Eagle (Soundtrack Review)

I really can’t see how anyone could possibly listen to this album and NOT be compelled to take on the world!  It really doesn’t hold back on the positivity which makes it the best kind of music to wake up to on a Monday morning.  I’m sure there are some people who might find songs […]

The Homesman Is Surreal, Grim Stuff (Movie Review)

How grim is too grim and when does it just start becoming a little humorous?  Earlier this year we had a novel idea for a film in the form of A Million Ways to Die in the West.  That film did not work for me overall, but the idea of making a western film that […]

The Family (Blu-ray Review)

Luc Besson made some of my favorite films of the 1990s; La Femme Nikita, The Professional and The Fifth Element.  For much of the previous decade he’s either been missing or taken on many smaller or more localized (for him) projects.  I was actually intrigued by him having a new American film coming out this […]
