Board, Blast Away and Have Fun with ‘Solo,’ A Star Wars Story (Movie Review)

I was very much against this movie being made ever since it was originally announced.  I even rejoiced when the rumored Boba Fett film crashed and burned.  It’s not that I don’t want another Star Wars film, because I do.  It’s because of the fact I can’t credibly think of a world where you can […]

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Blu-ray Review)

Films do not need to provide easy answers to every question they bring up. Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri (a title that will never roll off the tongue) is a movie analyzing the plights of multiple characters and has no desire to let any of them off easy. In fact, the film practically revels in […]

War for the Planet of the Apes (Blu-ray Review)

2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a surprise hit. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was a highly acclaimed follow-up in the summer of 2014. War for the Planet of the Apes hit theaters in the summer of 2017 and felt like it was received a bit more indifferently. Despite near […]

A ‘Glass Castle’ Of Emotion (Movie Review)

There is plenty to admire in The Glass Castle, an adaptation of the 2005 bestselling memoir by Jeanette Walls. The film is well-acted with a good handle on creating a look for a story focused on a family that spent years squatting in various homes. Sadly, the film ends up feeling too manufactured, rather than […]

Hail Caesar In ‘War For The Planet Of The Apes’ (Movie Review)

I remember feeling fairly alone in my anticipation for 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The franchise had lain dormant since Tim Burton’s 2001 remake, and the idea of a prequel/reboot didn’t seem to build into genuine anticipation for many. Regardless, the film was a surprise hit, leading to the massive critical and […]

On January 19th, I was able to attend the screening of the first film to be shot live and broadcast simultaneously into theaters in England and the U.S. While one would expect an experience like this to be the brain child of some indie filmmaker making his name, a new, unexpected Cloverfield movie, or some […]

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Hot on the heels of the original came the obvious sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire.  Since there’s, you know, multiple books in the series, anybody and everybody was expecting regardless of “how big” the first film would do.  With the sequel came a changing of the guard as Gary Ross stepped away from […]
