Blu-ray Review: FORSAKEN

FORSAKEN | © 2016 Entertainment One

UNFORGIVEN is one of my favorite movies of all time because it paints a picture of bad man trying to go good but he is just soooo damn good at being bad that he falls back into his old ways with the flip of a switch. FORSAKEN tries hard to be a clone of this storyline (at least in some degree) with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), er wait, John Henry Clayton coming home to his father’s town after years of being a gunslinger in the hopes of leading a simple, quiet life away from violence. But come on, this is […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: POINT BREAK

POINT BREAK | © 2016 Warner Home Video

This should probably be called X-GAMES: THE MOVIE because we get just about every extreme sport rolled into one film in POINT BREAK. I will say, however, that if you are going to do a remake or re-imagining or whatever you’d like to call it, this is the way to go. The original POINT BREAK focused on a group of bank robbers that also happened to be surfers and an FBI guy gains the group’s trust to bring them down from the inside. The same plotline is here but instead of surfers, they are all extreme sports people from snowboarding, […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE HATEFUL EIGHT

THE HATEFUL EIGHT | © 2016 Anchor Bay Home Entertainment

I love me a good Western. Even those that happen to be filled with more talking than what’s found on the Congressional floor. Of course, that’s what you get with Quentin Tarantino. To say the guy doesn’t like long-winded dialogue is like saying a mouse doesn’t like cheese. But that isn’t a knock against him. That’s his bread and butter and you know it going in. It worked during INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS a film set in World War II and it works here in a Western about a group of nasty individuals that all find themselves trapped during a terrible blizzard […]Read On »

It’s springtime, so you know what that means, right? It’s time for summer blockbuster trailers. I’ve got a couple of the big summer movie trailers below, plus an actual spring release.

CAPTAIN AMERICA CIVIL WAR | © 2016 Disney

I’m busy. You’re busy. We’re all busy. We work. We have hobbies. We have pets, spouses and/or kids. We have obligations and responsibilities. We have stuff to do. We can’t see all the movies we want to see. Who has time to see every movie? Movie critics. I mean, that’s their job, right? The rest of us have other, less cool jobs that don’t involve getting to see all the movies. But, we can make some time to watch a few movie trailers. They are short, and you get the gist of the movie. That’s good enough. You see what […]Read On »

CREED | © 2016 Warner Home Video

This week there are some really good films out including THE DANISH GIRL and ROOM that took home Oscars at the recent Academy Awards but also others that didn’t make the cut at the awards show. This week also marks the debut of many 4K titles being released. For those that don’t know, 4K is the ultra HD version of movies that looks even that much better than Blu-ray, bringing an even better experience to home video.
