‘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 only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke At last, we sadly come to the end.  Third acts in movie franchises have historically been weaker than the movies that preceded them.  There are rare exceptions to that but if you think about movies like […]

9 Sends Gregg Into Coma

French playwright Jean Giraudoux once said, “Only the mediocre are always at their best.”  And so is the case of Shane Acker’s new film, “9.”  I’m not going to give much away so don’t worry about spoilers.  However, once you’ve hit the 30-minute mark in the film, you pretty much get the idea of what […]

Brian Counts To 9!

I have to admit that my initial interest in 9 was based solely upon the first preview that was touted to me in the theater not so long ago.  The driving music, in the trailer, was the force that lit the wick on my inspirational candle, within my brain, to think that maybe this could […]
