Paramount is unloading a trio of Tom Cruise headlining films on May 19, including Top Gun, Days of Thunder and the 2005 Steven Spielberg adaptation of War of the Worlds. No doubt these were ready to be released in anticipation of Top Gun: Maverick this summer, but alas that film has moved to December. Luckily […]

Angel Has Fallen 4K Blu-ray Review

Mike Banning is back. The unlucky secret service agent always happens to put himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Last most of us (not me) saw him, he was saving the President in London.  Now, back home, Mike has some demons and some ailments making him less heroic. The human side of […]

Glory 4K Blu-ray Review

Glory was a movie that I’d been hearing of for nearly my entire life. I heard it was a harrowing story of a too often forgotten group of American heroes. I was always curious to see the film and chance after chance something kept me from seeing it until this past weekend. Glory does indeed […]

The Nutcracker And The Four Realms (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Disney has its share of high profile box office bombs, too, ya know. Notably this year, Solo: A Star Wars Story sadly couldn’t huff it as a more straightforward classic adventure in a galaxy far far away. The fairy tales/princess live action updates also can have their share of troubles, too. I’m sure some will […]

Red (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

We have a sorta fascination with older, aged action heroes nowadays without really knowing it. People have flocked to Liam Neeson movies and there seems to be some interest still there when Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger do a movie. Its come a long way since an aged Roger Moore was vine swinging in India […]

Going In Style (Blu-ray Review)

When I saw the cover for this movie I was immediately not interested, a bunch of old men paired with the title Going in Style had me thinking it was going to be a movie about a bunch of old guys who do something extravagant one time then they die (or something to that effect).  However, […]

Unforgiven (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Back in my old quality control days for Blu-ray and DVD, it also included the short lived HD-DVD format. Toshiba’s failed high definition discs did beat Blu-ray to market. In the testing world, I’ve mentioned the first two titles were Goodfellas and Million Dollar Baby. Well, the third was Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven. This was the […]

Forgotten Friday Flick – “Teachers”

Feeling strangely movie academic this week leads us to a past picture selection that helps both educate and entertain…welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!  Today we’re hitting the books and heading to class for a cinematic story about the ups, downs and student clowns that make up one ruckus high school.  It’s a dramatic yet comically […]

Now You See Me 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Now You See Me 2 won’t get any points for originality in the title department.  There’s also the absence of one of the Fourth Horseman, Isla Fisher’s character, to explain.  However, what I was at least hoping for here was some fun magic, deception and illusion tricks.  That much the first film managed to provide.  […]

Lucy (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Lucy was one of those in-home viewing experiences you can’t take back.  It was a religious experience, one of the best of my life.  After being slightly disappointed by the quality of my sci-fi fave Oblivion on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (review here) and the story in The Huntsman: Winter’s War (4K review forthcoming) I […]

Oblivion (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Oblivion is one of those extra special theatrical experiences that I’ll never forget in life.  I owe it all to Aaron Neuwirth.  The year was 2013 and my significant other and I had just moved down to Austin, TX from Cleveland, OH.  This was before Cleveland was a championship town.  We were both lost down […]
