An interesting mix of smaller movie notables this time out (T2-3D aside!) with a few films from previous weeks that I just saw in my humble effort to keep the all ardent cinefiles up to date.  (Plus the empty month of August sure has some slim pickins!)  Killer robots from the future now in 4K […]

xXx: Return of Xander Cage (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

While I have been completely disgusted by what has been transpiring with the divided American public this year (rioting, violence, demonstrations, destruction, etc) since the Presidential Inauguration there’s no doubt about it, the women very much have the power in xXx: Return of Xander Cage.  Feminists and enemies of President Trump cannot argue that.  Without […]

Feminists Rejoice! Xander Cage Returns! (Movie Review)

That’s right.  I said it.  While I have been completely disgusted by what has been transpiring with the American public these past couple days (rioting, violence, destruction) since the Inauguration there’s no doubt about it, the women very much have the power in XXX: Return of Xander Cage.  Feminists cannot argue that.  Without the many […]

‘xXx’: Reports Of Xander Cage’s Death Were Greatly Exaggerated (Movie Review)

There is a point in xXx: Return of Xander Cage where Vin Diesel starts wearing a giant fur coat, as if to suggest this 49-year old skater/adrenaline junkie/tattoo harvester/former spy was not cool enough for audiences already.  The coat is not a huge part of the film (and thinking about it now, I’m curious if […]

Imperium (Blu-ray Review)

The marketing for Imperium was completely misleading!  They presented it as just another film about Neo-Nazi America that just HAPPENS to star Daniel Radcliffe.  This totally bums me out because I TOTALLY would’ve seen this in the theater!  Honest to god, I freaking LOVE movies about Neo-Nazis!  But more on that later.  The biggest thing […]

Tammy (Blu-ray Review)

If there is one film that deservingly has the right and proudly should be able to give the middle finger write at box office pundits (that don’t write for Forbes), its Tammy.  This $20 million budgeted “one for me” film opening with a good $21 million opening weekend over 4th of July and because it […]

BOOOO! Brandon’s Top 10 Modern Horror Remakes

Take the “Booo!” in the title as either the ghostly scare sound or the hoards of fanboys’ reactions when something gets remade.  Over the last 15 years or so we’ve seen plenty of reboots, reimaginings and remakes come to fruition throughout each film going year.  The horror genre has certainly been the genre the most […]

Here Be ‘Boxtrolls,’ Delightful, Stop-Motion Fun (Movie Review)

It is one thing to put out a film that is a film that shows off the hundreds of hours of work that went into crafting a wholly unique world and set of characters, but it is another thing to merge that craftsmanship with a wonderful story about identity and societal roles of all things.  […]

Tammy Is Sad, Messy, and Occasionally Endearing (Movie Review)

It is unfortunate that Tammy does not quite work overall.  Here we have a character-based, R-rated comedy, featuring a large number of female characters, with ideas that extend beyond big-budgeted set pieces, and it is arriving in theaters just in time for the Fourth of July.  Melissa McCarthy fans may certainly enjoy the opportunity given […]

NBFF Review: The Way Way Back

The closing night film for the 2013 Newport Beach Film Festival is a real audience pleaser.  The Way Way Back is a fairly standard coming-of-age story about an introverted boy opening up to others thanks to good-natured people he befriends, away from his family.  The film is not breaking any new ground nor is it […]

Hitchcock (Blu-ray Review)

The idea of a movie revolving around the making of Psycho is certainly an intriguing one, made better by the fantastic cast that was involved, with a wonderful looking Anthony Hopkins in the guise of the Master of Suspense.  That is not exactly what I got, but what I liked about this movie, is how […]

Dial H For ‘Hitchcock’ (Movie Review)

Among the people that I would offhand list as my favorite directors, Alfred Hitchcock would be one of them.  The movie I regard as my favorite horror movie (let alone a favorite movie of mine in general) is Psycho.  The idea of a movie revolving around the making of Psycho is certainly an intriguing one, […]
