The Revenant Is A Dish Best Served Cold (Movie Review)

The Revenant is billed as a Western thriller.  Normally I’m not one at all for a Western (unless it’s a Tarantino), but you throw the word “thriller” in there and I’m all over it.  Add to the fact that the critics and media are saying this is finally going to be the one for Leonardo […]

Get Lost In “The Maze Runner” When The Hit Film Comes Home for the Holidays On Blu-ray This December

When The Maze Runner hit theaters earlier this fall, I was feeling pretty indifferent about its potential up to the point that I finally saw it.  While I would not say it is the best of this recent wave of young adult novel adaptations, it was certainly far more enjoyable than I expected (Review HERE).  The […]

If You’re ‘The Maze Runner’, You Run Like Hell (Movie Review)

At this point, seeing another YA novel adapted into a film only brings up so much excitement.  Part of it comes from there being only so many of these types of books I want to see as films and the other part is pretty simple: lots of these films are fairly dull and too focused […]

We’re The Millers (Blu-ray Review)

Come on!  Let’s be serious here!  I initially only saw this movie for two main reasons.  First, I had to check out Jennifer Aniston’s banging stripper body (tell me who didn’t) and second, when that boy starts singing “Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls” in the RV at the end of the film’s theatrical trailer, he had […]

‘We’re The Millers’ And The Audience May Laugh (Movie Review)

While I have seen plenty of raunchy comedies (This Is The End, The To Do List) and ones that skew towards the darker side (The World’s End, The Hangover: Part III), let alone perfectly safe comedies (The Internship) this year, I can’t say there have been too many pure wacky comedies.  I guess The Heat […]

The Latest ‘Narnia’ Installment Does More Than Just Tread Water

Of all the recent, popular, fantasy book series that have been adapted into films since the initial launch of the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings films, C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia series is the only one that I have read all the way through. It has been unfortunate that I have not been very impressed by the first two film entries. I was disappointed by ‘Wardrobe,’ and while I thought Prince Caspian was better (despite heading into a more disturbingly dark direction, while still being rated PG), I felt it still had problems finding the way to handle the world of Narnia. With that in mind, I had mixed feelings about what the next entry would have to offer. ‘Dawn Treader’ is my favorite book of the series, so an adaptation was going to have to work pretty hard to please me. Fortunately, I found this film to be the best so far in the Narnia film series.
