‘Savages’ Is a B-Movie With Only So Much Bite

In theory, I should have been fairly excited about a gritty, R-rated thriller from director Oliver Stone.  After Stone’s last set of films, which includes Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, W., and World Trade Center, Savages seems like the kind of film that would bring him back to the edgy kind of filmmaking once utilized […]

54 (Blu-ray Review)

Sex, drugs, and disco is what 54 is all about. 54 was an odd experience for me, particularly due to how the subject material was handled. The film constantly switches it’s tone from incredibly serious to incredibly silly. The film does in fact feature an all-star cast including Mike Myers (Austin Powers), Neve Campbell (Scream), […]

Frida (Blu-ray Review)

2002’s Frida would be Salma Hayek’s passion project finally come to fruition after so many years of rejections. She obviously had to pay her dues and build herself up as an actress and producer to get this done. Just because you’re hot in this town doesn’t mean you can always get what you want. It […]

Shrek Origins: ‘Puss In Boots’

The phrase “less is more” comes up a lot when dealing with particular characters that people tend to love.  In Shrek 2, the character of Puss in Boots was first introduced and became an immediate favorite to many.  Given that character’s popularity and the fact that DreamWorks Animation has decided to milk Shrek for all […]

Spy Kids 3: Game Over (Blu-ray Review)

I am a big fan of filmmaker Robert Rodriguez; however, I never quite made the plunge to go and see his “kids” films.  While Rodriguez has made some pretty hard R-rated features in his time (Desperado, From Dusk til Dawn, Sin City), he has also let his wild imagination carve himself out a niche in […]

Robert Rodriguez’s Spy Kids Investigate Blu-ray This August!

So if I’m such a big Robert Rodriguez fan, then why have I never seen any of these Spy Kids films?  I’m not sure of the answer to that one, but that’s all about to change this summer when his high octane kid-friendly franchise makes its way to the Blu-ray format.  Yep.  That’s right ladies […]

El Mariachi/Desperado (Blu-ray Review)

The Robert Rodriguez library on Blu-ray continues to expand.  Columbia Pictures proudly present: the first two films in the Robert Rodriguez “Mexican” trilogy.  It’s only fitting that a real Mexican was tasked with (okay I volunteered) to review the Rodriguez Mariachi series on Blu-ray.  Once again, this will be a cumulative review, but I will […]

Once Upon A Time In Mexico (Blu-ray Review)

In our previous adventures with our famed guitarista we had several revenge and closure story arcs to abide by.  With Once Upon A Time In Mexico we have come full circle.  Robert Rodriguez pulled a Sergio Leone.  This was to be Rodriguez’s The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Was Robert Rodriguez successful?  I suggest […]

Grown Ups: Summer Officially Begins!

What are up with these mega all-star cast films nowadays?  Seems like we just can’t get enough of them no matter how bad they are.  Hollywood studios slap a label on a one-sheet poster with five or more big box-office stars and all they have to do is sit back on their laurels and count […]
