Gobble Up ‘Homefront’ This Thanksgiving Dinner (Movie Review)

When I first saw the trailer for 2013 action thriller Homefront I thought that “could” be a good one considering in my book Jason Statham films are usually hit or miss.  It has a great cast to roast and boast about with the likes of James Franco, Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth, but perhaps one […]

Statham And Franco Face Off In ‘Homefront’ (Movie Review)

I love it when a movie really delivers on its promise.  Make no mistake, Homefront is a B-movie, but it is a damn good one.  It is the kind of action film that roots itself in the actions of characters and only feels gratuitous in the presentation of certain action scenes, but not in the […]

NBFF Reviews: The Iceman and Ghost Team One

I have already reviewed the Closing Night film of the 2013 Newport Beach Film Festival (the very entertaining The Way Way Back), but this is my final article in regards to the films I saw on Thursday night, closing out my time covering the festival.  It has been an exciting and exhausting experience, but I […]

‘Frankenweenie’ Is Brought To Life! (Via Stop-Animation)

This may be one of the more ironic results of the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again,” when it comes to filmmaking.  Back in 1984, director Tim Burton was fired from Disney for making a live-action short called Frankenweenie, which was deemed ‘too scary’ for children.  Now, for whatever reason, […]

Comic Con 2012: Frankenweenie Homage Trailer

Frankenweenie continues to be a a film I look forward to.  I love the fact that Tim Burton has revisited an idea he first made into a live-action short, but has now turned into a feature-length, stop-motion animated film (not to mention in both Black & White and in 3D).  It features a large voice […]

Black Swan (Blu-ray Review)

I had my reservations about going to see Black Swan when it was playing theatrically.  I loved the concept, but I hate to admit it, I’m not the biggest Natalie Portman fan.  I know she’s a natural beauty and that she can act, but every time I hear her name I tend to cringe and […]

Alien Anthology (Blu-ray Review)

I’m pretty sure that all three of my staff Blu-ray reviewers, excluding myself, would put some of the Alien movies in their all-time favorite lists if I asked them.  And so when the Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set arrived at my doorstep upon returning from sunny California, almost two weeks ago, it arrived at what […]
