DVD Review: Primal Fear Hard Evidence Edition

Primal Fear is one of the best courtroom dramas in the history of cinema. Not only does it feature great performances by Richard Gere and Laura Linney, but it also marks the debut of a talented young man named Edward Norton – some of you may know him. His startling performance earned him an Oscar […]

Movie Review: Oscar-Nominated New Boy

The 2009 Academy Awards debut next Sunday, and with it awards for all those short movies that no one has ever seen or heard about. One such live-action short nominated for an Oscar is New Boy, Ireland’s 11-minute entry written and directed by Steph Green. I normally don’t review short films, yet at the same […]

DVD Review of Choke

Choke arrives on DVD on Tuesday, February 17. Though the movie is from writer Chuck Palahnuik, who is best known for Fight Club, this movie isn’t anything that classic, and as such, fans may be disappointed. Nevertheless, for what it is, it works, offering some entertaining dark comedy about sex addicts and a delusional mother. […]

Atheists Rejoice: Religulous is Coming to DVD

Loyal readers should know that I’m an atheist. And as an atheist, I’m a big fan of Bill Maher’s documentary Religulous. It’s not that I think the movie is an incredible documentary that will convert believers – after all, believers wouldn’t come within ten feet of this movie – but it makes some pretty valid […]

Friday the 13th Movie Reviews

The new Friday the 13th movie comes to theaters this Friday, just in time for Valentine’s Day. From the director of the surprisingly good Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, the movie is destined to be the best of the franchise, even if by default. After all, let’s face it: the Friday the 13th series is terrible. […]

Frozen River Movie Review & Giveaway

Frozen River is one of those movies that you may not have heard of until Oscar nominations were announced, and that left you wondering how you could see such an acclaimed film that had long since left theaters. Thankfully, Frozen River is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray… I watched the movie over the weekend, […]

DVD Review: The Enforcer Special Collector’s Edition

The Weinstein Company will release Jet Li’s The Enforcer in a Special Collector’s Edition DVD on Tuesday, February 10, along with a variety of new bonus features including interviews with the producer, former child star Tse Miu and the villain of the picture, Ken Lo – as well as a feature commentary. What The Weinstein […]

Soul Men Movie Review

Soul Men comes to DVD next Tuesday, and of three big names in the film – Bernie Mac, Samuel L. Jackson and Isaac Hayes – only Jackson lived to see this comedy released to theaters. I’m not sure that Jackson was the lucky one. After all, Jackson most likely attended the premiere, which means that […]

Go Blind With the Blindness DVD: A DVD Review

One of my most anticipated movies of 2008, Blindness is directed by Fernando Meirelles, the man behind such visually stimulating films as The Constant Gardener and City of God. Given his stunning resume, Blindness looked like a sure lock for one of the best movies of the year. Starring Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore, the […]

DVD Review of the Bush-Who-Is-No-More: W.

I love movies. I really love movies. I love watching them, I love playing them, and I love stroking them. Wait, what? Ignore that last part. Getting back on track, as much as I love movies, I’m really not a huge fan of bonus features. It’s not that there aren’t some really good bonus features […]

Zack and Miri Make a Porno DVD Review

It’s funny: of all the successful comedies of the year, one of the funniest, which combined the likes of Seth Rogen with the director who made his kind of comedy possible in the first place – Kevin Smith – flopped. One shouldn’t have been surprised, given that Kevin Smith has hardly been a box office […]

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints Limited Edition DVD

Back in 2006, when A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints was first released, the movie was a surprisingly decent flick with a recognizable but not-staggering cast. Flash forward three years and the movie has changed significantly: it’s a surprisingly decent flick with an A-list cast. Back in 2006, the movie starred Robert Downey, Jr., who […]

Mary Poppins: 45th Anniversary DVD Review

OK, I’ll admit it: I’d never seen Mary Poppins. In fact, I didn’t even know what it was about. I knew that some lady named Julie Andrews was the star – and of course I know who Dick Van Dyke is – but other than that, I heard something about it being a cheesy combination […]

TV Show Review: Patrick Swayze is The Beast

The Shield is gone, leaving the airways devoid of gritty, gray-and-grayer police drama. Michael Chiklis was a complete badass, and over the course of seven amazing seasons, the writers carved an amazingly complex, suspenseful and believable tale of crime, corruption and tragedy. The last season, especially, was a masterstroke. And only a few months later, […]

Movie Review: Breakfast at Tiffany’s

This will be a short movie review, simply because there is little to say. For those of you who have been reading my blog with some consistency, you’ve noticed that I’ve been slowly working my way through the many classic Audrey Hepburn movies, that I, as a 20-something male, never got around to seeing. This […]
