Brave

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]

The Lion King: Diamond Edition

Movie Review I don’t think much new can be said about The Lion King. A film that after seeing in theatres helped me get kicked out of the local McDonald’s for singing the Lion Sleeps Tonight with my friends… rather loudly. This is quite possibly my favourite hand drawn animated film of all time. The music, the story, and the emotional connection still remains strong within me. I’ve been grat...[Read More]

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Movie Review The general consensus is that the last two Pirates movies left us a little flat, especially when compared to the first in the series. However, On Stranger Tides does a good job of recapturing that adventurous feeling that accompanied the first. I don’t believe we’ll ever re-experience that same excitement brought forth by the first. With a mostly new cast – save for returning Pi...[Read More]
