And Now For Something Completely Different (Brandon’s Top 10 Blu-rays Of 2019)

Another calendar year has come and gone in the “death of physical media” era we’ve been living in for years upon years now.

Much has been made about Tarantino’s thoughts on hanging up his director spurs after he’s completed ten films. With his 9th film, the utterly compelling Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, I’m […]

Backdraft (4K Blu-Ray Review)

Backdraft has often been one of those movies for me that I forget about. For whatever reason, despite the fact that the film is engaging, well acted and steadfastly directed, I always sock it away somehow. The funniest part to me is that despite it going left of my attention a lot of the time, […]

No ‘F8te’ But What We Make ‘Furious’ (Movie Review)

Franchise evolution is what keeps gas in the tank for a blockbuster film series. Superhero movies can ideally rely on a diverse set of characters that lend themselves to other subgenres, while James Bond generally works with what’s most popular in action cinema. Fast & Furious, a franchise I’ve unabashedly enjoyed and stuck by during the […]
