Gravity (Blu-ray Review)

When I first saw Gravity, it was extremely difficult to walk into a movie like this when there was so much hype and garnered praise surrounding it.  I mean, it has to be good, right?  Well, that’s the exact sentiment and question I carried with me when I went into my initial 3-D IMAX theatrical screening […]

‘The Monuments Men’ aka The Nerdy Dozen (Movie Review)

For all the great things The Monuments Men brought together in an effort to make an exciting war picture, with a good-natured twist, the film certainly felt pretty lifeless and dull.  I tend to make it no secret that I am happy to embrace the marketing of films, in an effort to get me excited […]

Here’s a flick that has really garnered a lot of attention, not only when it came out theatrically last year, but also during the holiday season when it was mentioned on just about everyone’s Top 10 list of films in 2013.  And going into the Awards season here shortly, you can rest assured that you […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2013 And Other Odds & Ends

It was a big year, but somehow I managed to put together a list of my favorite films of 2013.  I have to say that this was once again not the easiest list to put together.  Theatrically, I have seen 150+ films this year, so there were a lot of films to consider and figure […]

Brandon’s Rendition Of The Top 10 Films Of 2013

It started off kind of weak and had a slightly mediocre summer (for mainstream movies), but overall 2013 was a really great year for movies.  I say that because this Top 10 list was an incredibly difficult task to put together.  One of the most challenging things every year is we are so hyped up […]

So another year has come and gone way too quickly, bringing with it a long list of great movies as well as some I wish I could get the hours of my life back.  So with this being said, if you are anything like me, then you have a hard time choosing which movie to […]

Brian White’s Indisputable Heavyweight ‘Top 10 Films of 2013’

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 […]

‘Gravity’, A 2013 Space Odyssey (Movie Review)

Gravity is an answer to what film can be all about.  It charts a journey for a character, while presenting it in a most spectacular fashion.  The amount of work that must have went into carefully crafting every aspect of this film, from the story to the tiniest visual detail that rears its head, is […]

Let Go And Lose Yourself In ‘Gravity’ (Movie Review)

It’s extremely difficult to walk into a movie like this when there’s so much hype and garnered praise surrounding it.  I mean, it has to be good, right?  Well, that’s the exact sentiment and question I carried with me into Tuesday evening’s screening of Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity shown to all of us in 3-D IMAX.  […]

‘The Descendants’ Is Set In Hawaii, But It’s Not All Sunshine And Rainbows

I was starting to wonder where Alexander Payne went.  Following the large success of 2004’s Sideways, I was hoping to see more films from him sooner.  Payne has made success out of strong comedy-dramas, with some dark and satiric edges to them and I have been a fan of his films.  Now he has finally […]

Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind (Blu-ray Review)

I remember first hearing about this film and the story that surrounds it.  The idea of having the host of The Gong Show turn out to actually have once been a contract killer for the government was such a radical idea and the fact that it could be true made it all the more intriguing.  […]

Don’t Beware, But Instead Welcome “The Ides Of March”

In reviewing a film that would be described as a political thriller, the question of how that person leans versus how the film is deciding to lean can easily come up.  This is the same as associating any personal view towards a film, come time for its evaluation.  Being subjective while holding back personal views […]

Fed up with crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill (Clooney) busts loose…except that he’s still shackled to two misfits from his chain gang: bad tempered Pete (Turturro) and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelsen).  With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain, the three embark on […]

Three Kings (Blu-ray Review)

1999 was a great year for movies!  On one side of the spectrum you had garbage like Star Wars: Episode I and on the other side of the spectrum you had great films like Three Kings which were moderate budgeted made films that made a moderate return on their investment.  Three Kings was also one […]

The American Hits its Target, but Misses Bull’s-Eye

Here’s a film that I can easily tell, without looking at comment sections in various areas, will be labeled by more average filmgoers as “boring,” “slow,” or “if it wasn’t for that naked girl, I would have walked out.”  The majority of that credit can probably go to how the film has been marketed, with […]
