The Goldfinch (Blu Ray Review)

The release of The Goldfinch on Blu-ray offered me a chance to re-evaluate a film I liked well enough in theaters but was mired by poor reviews and a poorer box office. Was the nearly two and a half-hour run time too much or not enough to capture Donna Tartt’s Pultizer Prize-winning novel? As a […]

Directed by BAFTA Award winner John Crowley (Brooklyn). The film will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on December 3. The Blu-ray features […]

The Goldfinch Can’t Quite Soar (Movie Review)

I’ve only read fifty-one pages of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Goldfinch, yet I can tell from such a small sample (the book is nearly 800 pages) that a 140-minute feature adaptation would be a tricky endeavor. Nevertheless, John Crowley, who directed 2015’s Brooklyn, one of the best films of the decade, has given it […]

In Deedful Jubilee Brian White Picks His Top 10 Movies of 2017!

As Walking Dead‘s Negan would say “oh shiz.”  It’s that time of year again that I dread the most.  It’s colder.  It’s more expensive because of the holidays.  And worse of all I have to publicly proclaim which film titles I liked the most.  I sound like a broken record, but this year more than […]

Baby Driver (Blu-ray Review)

This past summer saw writer/director Edgar Wright land a huge hit with his film Baby Driver. That was great news to keep track of, as Wright speaks a cinematic language that I quickly picked up back with Spaced and Shaun of the Dead and have enjoyed ever since. Like his other films, Baby Driver takes […]

Aaron’s Top Ten Films of Summer 2017 & More

Looking back through 2017’s Summer movie season, it is hard not to see it as a success. There’s plenty of talk of how box office totals were down, but absent a major August release that took over the charts (think Guardians of the Galaxy or Suicide Squad) and a couple of whiffs from franchises people […]

Baby Driver “Excel”erates From Start to Glorious Finish (Movie Review)

Okay so I’m very much late to this Baby Driver party.  Sue me.  I rectified that problem today once and for all.  When our staff’s Top 5 of the year thus far in 2017 posted here yesterday I realized something.  Pretty much everyone had Baby Driver on their lists (two even had it as their top […]

‘Baby Driver’ And The Beats (Movie Review)

There was really no world where I wasn’t going to enjoy Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver. As a filmmaker, Wright speaks a cinematic language that I quickly picked up back with Spaced and Shaun of the Dead. Like his other films, Baby Driver takes a central concept, strips other movies for parts, and builds a Frankenstein […]

Baby Driver (SXSW Review)

Baby Driver stands out as a truly unique cinematic experience. One that pretty much could only be brought to life by its director, Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim Vs The World). The gentleman known for films with superb editing with inventive and fluid scene transitions and a liberal use of music appears to have outdone himself […]

‘Allegiant’ Fights Against Tired Ideas (Movie Review)

There is something to be said for the third film in a franchise (based on three books) that can essentially reboot itself with the same characters. While the Divergent series wasn’t over, Insurgent did leave things in a curious position. Now we are getting more answers, but while Allegiant may be an improvement over the […]

Jason Reitman’s MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN Has A New Trailer

Labor Day aside, I am a big fan of the films from Jason Reitman (Up In The Air, Juno, Young Adult), so I tend to get excited for whatever he has coming our way.  Men, Women & Children has me curious.  While I feel the film Disconnect handled a similar topic just last year, the idea […]

The Shining Stars Highlight ‘Fault’ (Movie Review)

Actors can make all the difference in films that only have so much going for them, based on either the screenplay or the way a film handles convention in general. The Fault In Our Stars is a film that deals with two young adults with cancer, who happen to fall in love with each other. […]

Divergent And The Prisoner Of Dauntless (Movie Review)

Divergent is the first sci-fi/action/coming-of-age film adapted from a young adult novel to be released this year.  For those keeping track, we still have The Giver, The Maze Runner, and The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay – Part 1 to look forward to in 2014.  I say this because these types of films have formed their […]
