‘The Hobbit: The Battle’ of Kill Kill, Stab Stab (Movie Review)

The second cinematic Middle-Earth trilogy has ended and now we are back where we started in 2002.  I am happy for those who are excited to rewatch The Lord of the Rings trilogy, following this ‘defining chapter,’ but I am left with other curiosities.  Having never read J.R.R Tolkien’s The Hobbit, I am curious about […]

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies is the film both fans of The Hobbit franchise have been anxiously waiting for and the moviegoers that do not care too much about the saga and just want it to finally come to an end.  However, to me it’s so much more.  Whether you read the […]

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Did the world really need this?  Is the world even ready for this?  Wasn’t 10+ hours of theatrical cuts (and even more with the extended editions) enough to sit through back in the day and again on Blu-ray?  Are we ready for three more consecutive years of a tale that’s mainly self-contained in one book […]

‘The Hobbit’ Brings Back Jackson, Dwarves, And Epic Length (Movie Review)

And so it begins; another tale of perilous, fantastical traveling.  I think it is funny that I went into The Hobbit knowing incredibly little about the actual plot, only to find that there was not a whole lot to learn.  I have not read any of J.R.R. Tolkien’s books and have only seen trailers for […]

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Movie Rant (Movie Review)

Did the world really need this?  Is the world even ready for this?  Wasn’t 10+ hours of theatrical cuts enough to sit through back in the day and again on Blu-ray?  Are we ready for three more consecutive years of a tale that’s mainly self-contained in one book and a few appendices?  Of course we […]

‘The Wicker Tree’ Branches Onto Blu-ray This April

I have to admit, I knew nothing about this movie before today, but I’m pretty damn intrigued.  Based on Robin Hardy’s acclaimed 2006 novel “Cowboys for Christ,” THE WICKER TREE tells the story of Texas-based singer Beth Boothby (newcomer Brittania Nicol —I’m pretty excited to see her…do a Google Image search for her…LOL) and her friend […]

Hugo (Blu-ray Review)

So the Oscars came and went and Hugo won like 23 of them or so along with The Artist. I jest, but Hugo did get nominated for 11 Oscars including Best Picture and ended the night with 5 statuettes. That’s a great ratio. Hugo won 5 technical awards – it won for Best Cinematography, Art […]

The Resident (Blu-ray Review)

Hammer Films through Image Entertainment has brought us The Resident starring Hillary Swank, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and the great Christopher Lee on Blu-ray.  As far as I know The Resident is a direct-to-video affair.  Even big name actors have to do these every once in a while, I guess.  Hammer Films has been around for […]

“The Resident” Moves In March 29th on Blu-ray

Here’s something right up my alley, and it features actors that I like.  Jefferey Dean Morgan, Hillary Swank, and Christopher Lee star in The Resident. Swank has landed the perfect job, the perfect place, and the promise of a new life.  Jefferey Dean Morgan is the landlord that oversees Swank’s new digs.  Terror and suspense […]

Glorious 39 (Blu-ray Review)

When I first heard of this movie I wanted to see it just for the cast alone.  Glorious 39 has Bill Nighy, Julie Christie, Christopher Lee, Jeremy Northam, David Tennant, and that’s a pretty good combination.  Plus, it was marketed as a thriller that takes place right before World War II, so between the two […]

Thor’s TOP 16 Vampire Movies

With the recent release of New Moon, the latest installment in Summit’s Box-Office behemoth the Twilight Series (or Saga, or whatever they’re calling it), vampires seem to be on everyone’s mind nowadays; be it for the tweens’ phenomenal adoration of them or the fan boy disdain of what they represent.  One thing is for sure; […]
