Take The Test Drive w/ Ford v Ferrari (Movie Review)

There was a time when the old Brian would have found such a movie like Ford v Ferrari to be a wet dream.  Up until about two years ago my world literally revolved around my 2006 Mustang GT.  She, affectionately named Dark Angel after Jessica Alba’s failed TV show back in the day, was everything […]

The Peanut Butter Falcon Blu-ray Review

Friendship can come in times when you don’t realize you need it most. Friendships that come in tough times, are some of the most unlikely and the most necessary of all.  The Peanut Butter Falcon tells a Huck Finn-esque coming of age tale that is sure to delight fans of what I like to call […]

Fury (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Seems like forever ago, but director David Ayer actually stocked himself up some well reviewed movies before the back-to-back nosedive of Suicide Squad and Bright. While critical praise isn’t there, Suicide Squad did made oodles of money and Bright was a pretty sizeable success for Netflix. Fury was the film prior to those, that had […]

Baby Driver (Blu-ray Review)

This past summer saw writer/director Edgar Wright land a huge hit with his film Baby Driver. That was great news to keep track of, as Wright speaks a cinematic language that I quickly picked up back with Spaced and Shaun of the Dead and have enjoyed ever since. Like his other films, Baby Driver takes […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Three New Indie Titles

Sorry film fans – a lesser amount of cinema covered this week as requests to see the very tasty looking Ingrid Goes West, saucy seeming The Only Boy Living in New York and questionable Open Water 3: Cage Dive went sadly unfulfilled.  But thankfully what was witnessed by yours truly turned out to be some […]

Baby Driver “Excel”erates From Start to Glorious Finish (Movie Review)

Okay so I’m very much late to this Baby Driver party.  Sue me.  I rectified that problem today once and for all.  When our staff’s Top 5 of the year thus far in 2017 posted here yesterday I realized something.  Pretty much everyone had Baby Driver on their lists (two even had it as their top […]

‘Baby Driver’ And The Beats (Movie Review)

There was really no world where I wasn’t going to enjoy Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver. As a filmmaker, Wright speaks a cinematic language that I quickly picked up back with Spaced and Shaun of the Dead. Like his other films, Baby Driver takes a central concept, strips other movies for parts, and builds a Frankenstein […]

Snitch (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I remember seeing trailers for Snitch like crazy during The Walking Dead on Sunday nights like crazy. Why? It had series star Jon Bernthal in the movie (Who was very popular when he was on the show). So, I guess they were hoping that would get people out to see it? But, lets not fool […]

The Accountant (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Accountant makes for a stupid film title in my opinion.  I don’t care how good the movie is, I still hate the name given.  I probably couldn’t come up with anything better, but that’s why I am writing Blu-ray movie reviews and not films themselves.  However, you can’t say it doesn’t grab your attention.  Come […]

Too Many Variables Complicate ‘The Accountant’ (Movie Review)

Right away it should be said that while The Accountant is not quite “good” it did impress me due to its existence. It was of little surprise to find that the film was once on the Hollywood Blacklist (a list of the most liked unmade scripts), as it clearly tries to accomplish a lot and […]

We Are Your Friends (DVD Review)

With the proliferation and international appeal of electronic music it is hard to explain why such a fresh and ripe new movement hasn’t garnished more attention from the film industry. The first feature film directed by Max Joseph(Catfish: The TV Show), We Are Your Friends attempts to shine the cinematic light on this relatively new and emerging […]

Cross The Border To Check Out ‘Sicario’ (Movie Review)

Sicario is one of those titles that when the press screening invite hit my inbox I immediately fist pumped the air and screamed “oh hell yeah.”  There was just something about the theatrical trailer (in particular that hallway of dead bodies behind the walls), never mind my love for Villeneuve’s Prisoners, that instantly sucked me in and […]
