Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Before I begin with my review here I just want to take a moment to reflect upon the fact that when you think about it, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition is the biggest 4K UHD Blu-ray title to hit the infant format since its debut earlier this year.  Did that monumental […]

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

‘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 […]

Take the “Booo!” in the title as either the ghostly scare sound or the hoards of fanboys’ reactions when something gets remade.  Over the last 15 years or so we’ve seen plenty of reboots, reimaginings and remakes come to fruition throughout each film going year.  The horror genre has certainly been the genre the most […]

300: Rise of an Empire (Blu-ray Review)

It’s been way too long between the amount of time that has passed since 2007 when Warner Bros. brought Roman soldiers with unbelievably chiseled pecs and abs into our living rooms on our early adoption HDTV sets during the Red vs. Blu Wars (HD-DVD vs. Blu-ray).  Can you believe it has been that long and for […]

‘300: Rise of an Empire’ Marches Onto Blu-ray June 24th

To say I had fun with 300: Rise of an Empire in the theater this past March is like saying gas prices used to be cheaper.  Hell yeah I had fun with this action baddie!  From Eva Green showing us her goods to the bloody battles we all come to love and adorn in the genre, this […]

7 Years Later, Witness ‘300’ Rise Again (Movie Review)

300 is not a film many would have watched in its original release and thought it could use a sequel.  Back in March of 2007, director Zack Snyder impressed audiences with his stylized cinematic vision of Frank Miller’s graphic novel, which was a fictionalized retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae.  300 was fairly straightforward, but […]

300: Rise of an Empire – ‘300’ SUPER-SIZED! (Movie Review)

Thinking about this today, it’s been way too long hasn’t it?  I’m talking about of course the amount of time that has passed since 2007 when Warner Bros. brought Roman soldiers with unbelievably chiseled pecs and abs into our living rooms on our early adoption HDTV sets during the Red vs. Blu Wars (HD-DVD vs. […]

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 […]

‘Man Of Steel’ Strives For Greatness, Settles On Good (Movie Review)

We’ll always have Superman: The Movie.  While Superman has arguably been the most recognizable superhero since his creation in 1938 and has remained a national icon, the 1978 film from Richard Donner seems to be the only time cinema had truly done its best to do him justice, let alone be the film that created […]

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.  […]
