Darkness, Camera, Action! ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ (Movie Review)

It seems like forever since the mighty Aaron Neuwirth wrote of the manic news that broke at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 here, which surprised the six thousand plus fans in attendance with news that the direct follow-up to the very divided Man of Steel entry would not necessarily be a solo outing, but also would include the infamous […]

‘Batman v Superman’ Is Gorgeous And Grim, With Little Room For Fun (Movie Review)

At its very best, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice depicts sequences ripped straight out of an Alex Ross comic book. When at its worst, this is a cold, muscled-up film that has the feel of something written by Frank Miller, minus the irony. There is far too much on display for me to call […]

Top 20: Aaron’s Odds & Ends of 2014

I enjoy putting together different year end lists, as they tend to function as a way for me to put emphasis on a lot of film that I would hope people check out at some point (or avoid, in the case of the ‘Worst of’ list).  This year, given how I have ranked a large […]

Pee-wee’s Playhouse – The Complete Series (Blu-ray Review)

Pee-wee’s Playhouse was very much an integral part of my childhood viewing.  I was the prime audience back in the day.  Every Saturday morning I would get up, have my marshmallow-y cereal and watch my cartoons.  Pee-wee’s Playhouse was always the very last show on in the morning.  The networks usually transitioned by having some live […]

Friday nights are not the most popular time you think of when it comes to “must see” television.  When a show moves to the end of the week its know as getting put in a “Friday Death Slot” where its assumed the next step for the show is cancellation.  However, few shows can do well […]

HANNIBAL Serves Up Its Second Season Sept 16 On Blu-ray

Network television’s best show of the last two years, Hannibal, is coming to Blu-ray.  The show’s second season continued its mythology building based off the Thomas Harris novels and deepened its lore.  Every frame, every breath of dialogue is so carefully constructed and it shows.  This show is so good, they’re bringing in elements from […]

Tap Into ‘The Signal’ (Movie Review)

The Signal is the kind of movie I want to support, despite finding some issues with it.  It is an original science fiction story with mysterious aspects that unfold as the film goes along in ways that I found consistently engaging.  The film ends up biting off a bit more than it can chew, but […]

Man of Steel (Blu-ray Review)

When I first found out they were attempting to go down the road of reinventing, rebranding and rebooting the legendary Superman franchise I just flat out laughed.  However, if you think that was rude, you should have heard the expletives I said when I found out that Watchmen’s Zack Snyder was helming the project.  I […]

The ‘Man of Steel’ Takes His First Test Flight (Movie Review)

The day is finally upon us.  They said it couldn’t be done.  They said it was impossible.  They said not in your wildest imagination.  Okay.  I admit it.  I said all of this when I first found out they were attempting to go down the road of reinventing, rebranding and rebooting the legendary Superman franchise.  […]

Contagion (Blu-ray Review)

My son and I are both sick right now and it’s probably just a really bad cold, but as I watched the movie while coughing and sneezing, I realized that this probably isn’t the best time for me to watch a movie called Contagion.  I’m not usually a hypochondriac, but I’m open to suggestion when I’m […]

Heinz 57 to the Rescue in ‘Contagion’

I left the theater after seeing Contagion with many thoughts on my mind.   They ranged from global epidemics and government cover-ups to animal cruelty and issues of morality.  Contagion opened your eyes to all the questions regarding the BIG IF.  What IF this really happened to us?  I’m referring to a widespread, global virus epidemic, […]
