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 […]

Looper (Blu-ray Review)

Although I’m a big Joseph Gordon-Levitt (JGL) fan and who can deny the charisma of Bruce Willis, I gotta say…I wasn’t really looking forward to this one back in September.  The trailers looked intriguing, but they never completely sold it and hooked me in.  But I thought…hey….why not?  If the movie’s terrible, there’s always going […]

‘Lincoln’ Finds Courage In Its Craft And Focus

Lincoln is a film that has been a long time coming.  I remember hearing about early stories of director Steven Spielberg working on getting a movie made about Abraham Lincoln, with Tom Hanks being rumored for the role.  Then things became more official, as Liam Neeson was said to be attached.  The time passed, Neeson […]

‘Premium Rush’ Rides To Blu-ray This December

Premium Rush was a somewhat surprising film to come out of the summer.  Sure, it looked like it could be silly fun, but the movie was actually a lot more fun and exciting than it’s late August release date lead me to believe (Review).  So with that said, on December 21st, people will get the […]

‘Looper’ Bends Time And Breaks Convention

Time travel movies can often be tricky.  I am a big fan of films that attempt to utilize the subject, as I like to spend plenty of time thinking about the logic involved.  In many cases, regardless of how much fun or how good the film is, the logic is not really sound.  Some time […]

Gear Up For ‘Premium Rush’ (And Wear A Helmet)

Action movies dropping into theaters at the end of summer do not generally inspire a lot of confidence, especially when they are flicks that were moved from the already dead time of year that is January and into the even worse doldrum-like area that is the weeks that hover around Labor Day weekend.  Still, it […]

When Christopher Nolan rebooted the Batman franchise with Batman Begins, I was ecstatic to see the Batman I had always imagined from the comic books come to life.
