Death On The Nile (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Pandemic and a load of delays may have knocked off a potential adult IP franchise too quickly in that of Kenneth Branagh’s take on Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot. Murder On The Orient Express proved to be a solid success back in 2017. Unfortunately its sequel, Death on the Nile, would be pushed back and a […]

Sorry To Bother You (Blu-ray Review)

Sometimes it is easy to tell when a new cinematic voice is ready to be heard. Sorry to Bother You has the benefit of a high-profile cast to keep it from slipping through the cracks, which is precisely what is needed for an ambitious film like this. Because of that sort of attention, the summer of 2018 […]

Earlier this year, Sorry To Bother You arrived in theaters as one of my most anticipated films thanks to its wild trailer and build-up as a film that would throw everyone through a loop. It certainly delivered and now it’s coming to Bluray on October 23, with plenty of special features. Check it out – Expect the […]

Cars 3 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

In the world of Pixar, it used to be that they typically didn’t cash in on making a boatload of sequels beside Toy Story. Now, we have Monsters University and Finding Dory recently with an Incredibles 2 on the way.  But, the odd outlier is now the Cars series, as it now has as many […]

Free Fire (Blu-ray Review)

I love seeing various action movies that show you two extremes. On the one side, you get a vintage John Woo flick like Hard Boiled, where Chow Yun-fat can equip himself with dual pistols and slide down a staircase banister while hitting plenty of bad guys. The other side leads something like one of my […]

‘Cars 3’ Cruises With Lightning (Movie Review)

I think of Pixar’s Cars franchise as a harmless source of income for the acclaimed studio. Yes, Pixar is matched more frequently now by other animation studios than when Finding Nemo came out, so Cars is put down for so clearly resting on a lower tier than other Pixar efforts. I am no different as […]

The Darkly Comedic ‘Free Fire’ Shows You The Way Of The Gun (Movie Review)

Free Fire (SXSW Review)

Having only seen one of director Ben Wheatley’s (Kill List) films before, I had a distinct skepticism about the idea of waiting in line for his next release, Free Fire. The premise of a gun deal gone wrong didn’t really promise much in the way of depth and I knew from his previous work that […]

Nocturnal Animals (Blu-ray Review)

Nocturnal Animals is a flick I knew nothing about prior to seeing theatrically last year.  I had never heard of it before so when the press screening invite arrived in my inbox it was very much a surprise to me.  I saw that Amy Adams was in it and decided to give the trailer a spin. […]

The Birth Of A Nation (Blu-ray Review)

The Birth of a Nation came and went last year. Following its breakout at the Sundance Film Festival, the proceeding months were not kind to writer/director/producer/star Nate Parker, based on a muddy history that was brought back into the news. Still, there is a righteous part of me that sees a film recounting a historical […]

‘Nocturnal Animals’ Show Its Stylish Teeth (Movie Review)

Writer/director/fashion designer Tom Ford has certainly proven he knows how to dress up a scene and his characters. Nocturnal Animals presents multiple scenarios, be it characters at home or in the middle of something out of a Cormac McCarthy novel, which feel lovingly crafted for one to observe every detail, as if reading an intense description from […]
