Transcendence (Blu-ray Review)

Going into 2014, Transcendence was on my “movies to check out” list.  I didn’t really know all too much about it.  Mainly, it was the prospect of seeing longtime Christopher Nolan collaborator Wally Pfister make his directorial debut.  It was the notion of seeing someone from the Nolan tree branch out was attractive enough to […]

‘Transcendence’ Exceeds No Limits (Movie Review)

For a techno-thriller about artificial intelligence, it actually seems to make sense that Transcendence does not have a whole lot of emotion to back up its big ideas, aside from  Paul Bettany’s cry face, which makes its appearance now and again.  This is a film that could have worked as a cheesy B-movie with the […]

The Latest ‘Iron Man’ Is Back With Black (Movie Review)

Following the fever dream of comic geekery meets worldwide appeal that was 2012’s The Avengers, Marvel Studios is now back to producing a standalone feature for the star that kicked it all off – Iron Man.  Taking a step away from his super friends, Iron Man 3 is refreshing in how it does not need […]

Margin Call (Blu-ray Review)

While watching Margin Call, a movie that I overall enjoyed, mainly due to the ensemble cast, I felt like wishing I could appreciate it more, given the subject matter.  It is based around the events leading up to the start of the 2007-2008 financial crisis and feels like a film that could be easily watched […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Films of 2011 & Other Yearly Wrap-Up Stuff

To me, 2011 was a pretty unusual year.  I say that because I found there to be an unusual amount of great films that came out in both the realm of mainstream feature films and the realm of art house and independent features.  This year, like any year, had its share of duds as well, […]

Priest (Blu-ray Review)

You wanted some non-sparkling vampires, well now you got them!  Priest is the latest graphic novel-to-film-adaptation to hit the big screen with a pretty strong and familiar cast.  The original graphic novel is Korean and was created by Hyung Ming-woo.  The cast of Priest is comprised of Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q., […]

‘Priest’ Has Committed Many Sins

I want to know what happened behind the scenes during the production of this movie.  It would have to be more interesting than anything that happened in this film.  The film is based off of a very popular Korean comic series, so I would like to think that someone brought in a presentation to Charles […]

‘Priest’ Offers Few Blessings

During a recent discussion with a like-minded comic book aficionado, my conversing counterpart referred to vampires as ‘cupcakes’, citing the popularity craze over both in mainstream media. Apparently cupcakes are the current hip dessert, and vampires, likewise, are the current hip supernatural flavor. With that in mind, the latest fang-bearing craze to arrive in the cinema is […]

The Tourist (Blu-ray Review)

I was pretty harsh in my initial review of The Tourist last December.  I’ll admit it.  It’s not that it’s a completely bad movie, but it just had a multitude of potential and all the right ingredients to be so much better than it was.  That’s why I initially called it disappointing.  So why wasn’t […]

‘The Tourist’ Should Have Had its Passport Revoked

To reference a review I wrote a few weeks ago, this movie has nice shoes. It is nice to look at, but to be fair, is it really that hard, these days, with a large budget, to not be able to make a movie set in Venice look that good? Regardless of the answer to that question, it is apparently hard to make a movie set in Venice that features two of the world’s biggest stars, is directed by a talented filmmaker, and written by a couple of Oscar winners any good. The Tourist is kind of a disaster. It lacks any kind of momentum, suspense, or entertainment (save for some random quips by an ill-equipped ((or just bored)) Johnny Depp). This film put me to the point of wanting to rather watch a movie about Paul Bettany’s character dealing with the boring bureaucracy of his job. But how do I really feel?

I Wouldn’t Travel Too Far To Catch ‘The Tourist’

My good friend has a one-word saying where if something is just barely plausible in her opinion she will respond by saying “meh.”  Honest to God, I can’t think of a better word to describe The Tourist.  When she asked me today how the film was I was not quick enough to respond in the […]

Legion a Sinful Mess

Let the games begin!  No, I’m not referring to the upcoming Winter Olympics.  Rather, those were the words that rang through my mind as we entered 2010.  I looked forward with cinematic excitement as the list of releases brought child-like excitement to my eyes.  Up to the halfway mark of 2009, I was beginning to […]
