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

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 this is ...[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 Festival earlier th...[Read More]

Brave Theatrical Review

While Cars 2 was enjoyable enough those two movies about anthropomorphic automobiles are in the bottom tier of Pixar pictures for me. So when preview clips for the next Pixar flick gave us glimpses of an unruly red haired lass with bow and arrow and the title of Brave, my anticipation level kicked up a notch. And Brave is aptly titled. For what could be a cliched love story about a young Scottish ...[Read More]

The Raid: Redemption Theatrical Review

The Raid: Redemption is something of a breakthrough for the martial arts genre. That is to say, it kicks all kinds of ass. Director Gareth Evans displays his love for the genre and the style of martial art called Pencak Silat. Between a high octane sense of urgency on behalf of the actors and a kinetic, Danny Boyle-esque styled camerawork. It’s truly a thrill to watch, and martial arts enthusiasts...[Read More]

Mass Effect 3 [PS3 review]

Developer: BiowarePublisher: Electronic ArtsGame Rating: M (Mature)Players: 1 to 4 How does one write a fair review of something as big as Mass Effect 3? When the game landed last March, it wasn’t so much a product launch as it was a megaton marketing blast over a groundswell of fan-generated buzz that would make most game developers weak in the knees. The whole circus of trailers, trailers of tra...[Read More]

The Hunger Games Theatrical Review

I will admit upfront that I did not even hear of The Hunger Games novel until the first images from the movie hit the web. I tend to live in a world of film and not book. It’s not something that was really encouraged, or something that was pushed upon me as a child. I’m working on changing that of course. That’s not why we’re here though. We’re here to talk about The Hunger Games. I tend not to be...[Read More]

Drive Theatrical Review

Ryan Gosling said, when talking about Drive, that this was his superhero movie….and he might just be right. It pretty much is really, if you boil it down. Gosling plays a tightlipped, mysterious character who works as a mechanic by day, and moonlights as a stuntman and a getaway driver for thieves by night–sounds like a “superhero-esque” character to me. The director, which you may or ...[Read More]
