The Big Short (Blu-ray Review)

Adam McKay, the director of Anchorman and Step Brothers, has now won an Oscar for making a film that works tremendously well as a scathingly funny indictment of America’s most recent financial crisis. Here is a movie that eschews proper characters arcs in favor of being a terrifying lecture about how things went so wrong […]

‘Knight Of Cups’ Is An Auteur In Overdrive (Movie Review)

It may be more worthwhile to examine the ‘what if’ scenario of what a superhero film directed by Terrence Malick would be like, rather than try to decipher his latest feature, Knight of Cups, but I’m going for it anyway. At the risk of repeating himself to the point of self-parody, one of the most […]

Reilly’s drum set, you now have the film that awarded him an Oscar nomination for Best Director and more. Based on the best-selling book by Michael Lewis, THE BIG SHORT details the true story of four outsiders who […]

Exodus: Gods and Kings (Blu-ray Review)

Exodus: Gods and Kings is an epic.  There is no way around that.  Regardless of my thoughts on the film as a whole, director Ridley Scott has made a film that is grand in scale, fully realized in its depiction of an ancient time, and littered with extras, sets, props, and obvious visual effects in […]

‘Exodus’ Commands Visual Grandeur, But Is Plagued By A Lack Of Emotion (Movie Review)

Exodus: Gods and Kings is an epic.  There is no way around that.  Regardless of my thoughts on the film as a whole, director Ridley Scott has made a film that is grand in scale, fully realized in its depiction of an ancient time, and littered with extras, sets, props, and obvious visual effects in […]

Out Of The Furnace (Blu-ray Review)

Coming in late last year, with some small hopes at awards possibilities was Scott Cooper’s Out Of The Furnace.  The Crazy Heart director followed up his Oscar winning film with a gloom and doom tale regarding a family of mill workers in North Braddock and an underground illegal gambling fight scene.  The film surprisingly (in […]

The calendar year of 2013 was a tough one for me in the film department.  However, unlike my recent Top 10 Blu-ray list over here, where I struggled to even find ten Blu-rays that I really really liked in 2013 (only leaving off Cloud Atlas), I find myself faced with a smorgasbord of films that […]

Get Conned Into Loving ‘American Hustle’ (Movie Review)

I remember the first time I saw Bradley Cooper on the hit ABC television show Alias opposite Jennifer Garner circa 2001 I proclaimed out loud that this cat is going to be a big star.  My ex at the time scoffed at me and said whatever.  She never believed in me.  Therefore, that’s why she’s […]

A Winning, Sexy Cast (And Bale) Score In ‘American Hustle’ (Movie Review)

A lot of times I see films that seem to ooze a lot of cool and pizazz, regardless of substance, from directors I enjoy.  My go-to example of this tends to be Steven Soderbergh and Ocean’s Eleven.  What helps is how that film and others like it also have a collection of actors turning in […]

Strong Performances Heat Up ‘Out Of The Furnace’ (Movie Review)

Seeing so many good actors in a film like Out of the Furnace, which does not suggest a huge budget was in place or that there was a long, labored production (I hear the shooting schedule was about a month), gives me the idea that a lot of people responded to the script and those […]

It’s that not-so-dreaded time of the year where I unleash my Top 10 Blu-rays of 2012. This year I thought I’d go against the grain the best that I could and just limit myself on picking Blu-rays that actually made a statement in terms of video, audio, and special features, instead of films that were […]
