Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse Review

Some would argue that if you had seen one Tom Clancy movie or read one of the books you had seen and read them all. This sums it up in essence and this is how you should approach watching this movie. Temper your expectations. We are actually off to a quite decent start, following John on his mission to extract a CIA asset from hostile grounds. The mission goes sideways in a way due to incomplete b...[Read More]

Mortal Kombat – Theatrical Review

This is not Mortal Kombat’s first foray onto the big screen. In 1995 New Line Cinema brought the video game to life with mediocre reactions. It was good enough to spawn a sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, and a few animated films as well. When the first film released the first Mortal Kombat video game (Midway Games) had only been out for 3-years and its cultural power was yet to truly be known....[Read More]

Love and Monsters – Review

When I first saw the title I thought, well that’s going to be a cheesy movie. In the end it turned out to be quite enjoyable which left me pleasantly surprised. Joel (Dylan O’Brien) the protagonist, is going on a classical “Hero’s Journey” overcoming all obstacles in a post apocalyptic supersized monster world to reunite with his love Aimee (Jessica Henwick). I liked ...[Read More]

Thunder Force – Review

A new release on Netflix and currently #3 in France “Thunder Force” written and directed by Ben Falcone is up front and center on everyone’s dashboard and so it is not surprising that by sheer viewer numbers, this pops into the top 10. It will as quickly drop out of it though since it is simply not a good movie, mediocre at best with a few less mediocre moments and pop culture re...[Read More]

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Theatrical Review

The first entry in the stand alone Star Wars film series is, in my opinion, a huge success. As film that was spawned from a single line of dialog in A New Hope I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when the room went dark and projector started rolling. Rogue One thankfully delivers in all the right ways. Let me just say that none of the entries in the star wars universe are perfect. There is pl...[Read More]

The Angry Birds Movie – Blu-ray Review

Movie Review I didn’t know what to expect when I sat down to watch The Angry Birds Movie. Considering it was based off an iPhone game that saw you launch a variety of birds at bigs on structures how was this movie going to work. Well, it wasn’t total drivel. There were a few good laughs and decent story existed that created the AB universe. With the voice talent, however, I did expect ...[Read More]

Brave – Blu-ray Review

Movie Review Many think Pixar was off the mark with Brave, but I believe those people are mistaken. Brave is a wonderful movie that looks at the aspects of childhood rebellion and growing up. When we are first introduced to Merida and her mother, the queen, you see the fun they have together. When we leapfrog into her teen years you can see the clash, which every parent has with their kids as they...[Read More]

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Movie Review Since Timur Bekmambetov directed Wanted I’ve been excited to see what he does next. Here comes his latest Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and while it definitely features his signature style, the film is somewhat lacking. I think I expected much more from it than what it delivered. While most movies carry on the requisite “training sequence” far too long and end up courting ridic...[Read More]

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn

Movie Review When the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn serials hit the web it was hard to enjoy the story as it was difficult to be able to watch them in sequence. With this Blu-ray release from Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries we get the true experience as it was meant to be. The majority of the series takes place before the war with the Covenant and follows the Hastati Squad at a UNSC training faci...[Read More]

Wreck-It Ralph – Theatrical Review

Disney releases animated movies that are either created by Pixar or from their own Animation Department.  Wreck It Ralph is from the latter and as such does not match the storytelling and visual splendor that Pixar seems to do without effort. Wreck It Ralph is a solid effort that are technically well done, especially with the Sugar Rush sequences, but never elicits a Wow response. Part of thi...[Read More]

Looper – Theatrical Review

  (Fair warning: if you have not seen this movie yet you are advised to delay your reading of this review.  Story points will be discussed that are best consumed without any prior knowledge.  Bottom line – Looper is definitely a film worth seeing.) Looper proved to be the latest InterNet OverHype experience for me.  When it premiered at the Toronto International Film Fest...[Read More]
