‘Race’ Runs Through Jesse Owens’ Achievements And Leaps Over Deeper Meaning (Movie Review)

There is nothing wrong with celebrating our heroes by recreating their legacy through film. Race is another sports biopic that delivers strong enough performances matching scenes recreating important events in history, with an ending featuring ‘wrap it up’ text over photos of the real people involved. It is simple enough to admire, but falls in […]

SDCC 2015: Batman! Superman! Wonder Woman! wowowowow!

Nothing but spectacular doom and gloom.  Watching this in Hall H was one hell of an experience. The cast came out, all bright smiles except for Affleck. His parents were killed when he was a child, after all. Can you blame him? Or maybe it’s the divorce. When discussing the great actors who have played Batman, […]

Beautiful Creatures Is Campy, Melodramatic, And Fun (Movie Review)

If Twilight has paved the way for movies like Warm Bodies and Beautiful Creatures to be made, then I am all for it at this point.  I am not actively seeking out paranormal teen romance movies, but the fallout from one self-serious franchise has led to a couple, more accessible and enjoyable features that I […]

Margin Call (Blu-ray Review)

While watching Margin Call, a movie that I overall enjoyed, mainly due to the ensemble cast, I felt like wishing I could appreciate it more, given the subject matter.  It is based around the events leading up to the start of the 2007-2008 financial crisis and feels like a film that could be easily watched […]

Dungeons & Dragons/Dungeons & Dragons – Wrath of the Dragon God (Blu-ray Review)

Dungeons & Dragons is a powerful brand.  Even those that haven’t held their breath as they rolled a twenty-sided die have at the very least heard of it.  With the global awareness of the brand, one would think that selling a movie based on the franchise would be an easy sell but it took a […]
