The Batman (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Its a weird place to be where I don’t really NEED any more Batman, but I’m never going to turn down the opportunity for more Batman either.

‘The Batman’ Begins… Again! (Movie Review)

With The Batman, Robert Pattinson is the seventh actor to play the Caped Crusader, thereby eclipsing the number of James Bonds to hit the silver screen. Both made their live-action debuts in the 60s.

The French Dispatch (Blu-ray Review)

While the tentpoles and franchises are our given multimedia events of every filmgoing year, Wes Anderson is certainly one for the indies or cinephile market. For myself, he’s a clear my schedule and get to his latest film immediately kind of director. And in 2021, it felt like I was loaded with directors fitting that […]

No Time To Die (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

No Time To Die marks the end of an era…at least for Daniel Craig as James Bond.  I’m bittersweet about it because while I know the titular character of 007 James Bond will live on again actor Daniel Craig was my most favorite Bond.  I have mad respect for the 007 lore and fandom, but […]

Yours truly has now covered the first season of HBO’s Westworld, also known as The Maze, on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray over HERE, and the second season, also known as The Door, HERE.  Therefore, it only makes sense to have me lock down the third season, which wears the moniker The New World.  I think […]

Despite insane popularity, Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty had a two year hiatus which in part was do to some renewal contract negotiations.  And once the dust settled, fans could find relief in that Rick and Morty was not only coming back, but that it would be here to stay for an additional 70 episodes […]

The Goldfinch (Blu Ray Review)

The release of The Goldfinch on Blu-ray offered me a chance to re-evaluate a film I liked well enough in theaters but was mired by poor reviews and a poorer box office. Was the nearly two and a half-hour run time too much or not enough to capture Donna Tartt’s Pultizer Prize-winning novel? As a […]

Westworld Season 2: The Door (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Yours truly originally covered the first season of Westworld, also known as The Maze, on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray over here.  Truth be told it’s a very boring, but also thrilling watch at times.  Admittedly so I fell hard asleep the first time I attempted to watch the first episode of the second season during […]

Westworld Season One: The Maze (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Given the fact that when this series originally aired earlier this year I pretty much had to watch each episode twice due to many slow lulls that put me to sleep like a baby probably doesn’t make me the best suited reviewer to tackle Westworld: Season One. However, that doesn’t mean that I didn’t like […]
