Gregg’s Best and Worst Films of 2016

It was certainly a turbulent year in the entertainment business as 2016 saw the passing of numerous stars. Bowie left us, then Alan Rickman and the list went on with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds passing just days apart. While they have moved on to whatever the next stage may bring, we will always have […]

Great Acting Foundation Holds Up ‘Fences’ (Movie Review)

To see Denzel Washington star, produce and direct an adaptation of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Fences is to literally watch the superstar paint himself into a corner. I mean that in a good way, as this is a story that was originally set entirely in the backyard of a house in Pittsburgh. This […]

Suicide Squad (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Suicide Squad is one of those movies where you just have to get that first screening under your belt.  It’s like being on a Southwest Airlines airplane.  You know how you hear that ding and the captain says you’re now free to move around the cabin?  It’s sort of the same principle with David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.  […]

Suicide Squad Saves The World With Disappointment (Movie Review)

Suicide Squad needs no further word of mouth to market this one.  Warner Bros. made plenty sure of that with all the various trailers and TV spots.  Heck, Margot Robbie is practically the poster child of this one.  Who needs the Joker and Batman?  She sells the film herself as Harley Quinn, but seriously.  The […]

The Messy Guns: From The Files Of ‘Suicide Squad’ (Movie Review)

There’s a scene at the end of the second act of Suicide Squad where Task Force X, a group of supervillains brought together to fight fire with fire (sometimes literally), hang out in a bar. The idea is to have the group relate to each other and come to the conclusion that the world may […]

Comic-Con 2015: Suicide Squad Trailer

I’m not sure this trailer first shown at Comic-Con really needs no introduction?  The verbiage in this first paragraph should just say click and watch me!  Haha!  Of course I’m talking about David Ayer’s much-anticipated Suicide Squad which hits theaters August 5, 2016 and stars  Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Viola Davis.  The film takes place obviously […]

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (Blu-ray Review)

Reviewing The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby on Blu-ray makes for a somewhat difficult situation, because there are two versions of this film (thankfully both available on this release).  The first has something of a subtitle known as “Them”.  This version takes the story of a married couple that separates and follows both of their lives […]

Get On Up (Blu-ray Review)

Given the strength of the lead performance and some other aspects, at this point, I am pretty fine with saying Get On Up was one of the more underrated films from 2014.  I am a big fan of James Brown and was happy to go in to this film pretty open-minded (as I generally do).  […]

‘Blackhat’ AKA Sexy Hackers (Movie Review)

Blackhat is a slickly-produced techno-thriller from co-writer/director Michael Mann.  While Mann continually enjoy exploring the relationship between cops and crooks, this film and the last couple efforts from Mann (Miami Vice, Public Enemies) seem to feature same issue: personality vs. interest.  The fact is, all of Mann’s films have tons of personality, given his stylish […]

Get On Up Is Out Of Sight (Movie Review)

There is a level of familiarity to musician biopics at this point that tends to keep me from becoming too excited about the prospect of a new one.  With varying degrees of separation, they mostly tend to follow a formula, much like any film that hits similar beats as its predecessors within the same sub-genres […]

Ender’s Game (Blu-ray Review)

It was unfortunate to not see this film take off big, theatrically.  I was quite impressed by what I saw in theaters, given my adoration for the book, but the film could not quite connect with the masses in the same way that something like The Hunger Games has proven to do.  Based on the […]

Prisoners (Blu-ray Review)

You ever have those moments in life where you first see a film’s theatrical trailer, having never known anything about it beforehand, and instantly “know” that it’s a film you want to see upon its release with no hesitations or second guessing?  Well, that’s exactly how I felt about the film we are all gathered […]

Prisoners Escapes Onto Blu-ray This December

I’m sorry, but Wolverine has nothing on Hugh Jackman’s character here in Prisoners.  Whether or not you believe in his twisted form of justice or not is your problem.  I just know that this guy is an animal in this film and I’m looking forward to re-visiting this one on Blu-ray when it  arrives December […]
