“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” Kickin’ it on Home Video

Kicking off into hyperspace Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 turns up the action and the comedy in this science fiction action adventure now on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD. It’s been nearly 3 years since the first one hit the big screen and that one was amazing, but I was extremely happy with this next chapter that blew me away. The production quality on the Blu-ray outweighs that of the first taking audiences into a future filled with imaginative aliens and a vast fantasy universe. Read more

Town that Dreaded Sundown, the phantom returns



Worn out and not very scary, the sequel to the classic horror flick The Town that Dreaded Sundown tries to piggyback off the original, but comes up lame. The original 1976 release, as campy as it is, follows the crimes that actually happened in 1946 in the City of Texarkana and gives an aura of fear. Making a remake of the original film would have been better as the fear factor would still radiate from the real serial crimes that was never solved. Read more

“The Hobbit:The Desolation of Smaug” A Must See Sequel



Continuing on their journey the band of dwarves and Bilbo Baggins find the going rough in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug.  The film is the second segment, or act two, of the trilogy directed by Peter Jackson. It’s a bridge to the last act that’s slated for release in 2014.  Steeped with action, the lengthy trip through Middle Earth works its way through mountains, a foreboding forest, and a small village to the destination of a meeting with the dragon Smaug. It’s a magical trip that ends as a nail-biting cliffhanger. Read more

“Catching Fire” Heats Up as The Hunger Games Continues

HUNGER poster 1


The Hunger Games continues with “Catching Fire” and as the title suggests the movie does just that.  The compelling adventure starts out with a bang, continues with non-stop action and leaves you hanging for the next installment.  The main cast is back and they put on a great show recreating their characters for this sequel.  On the downside, even through the CGI is brilliant it gets too heavily laden and almost animated, leaving very little to the imagination.  Most audiences will walk away from the experience with an empty feeling being left hanging in the middle of the battle.

The Hangover Part III, Not the Fun Expected (Film Review)


Actually, although I did laugh at many of the comical mishaps to which the characters were subjected, The Hangover Part III wasn’t up to par with the original of the three episodes.  The good things were the return of the whole main cast that made The Hangover Part I a huge success, the downside was it turned out to be more repetitious than I thought it would be.  If you just can’t get enough of the ‘Wolfpack’ however, then rush right over to your theater this Memorial Day weekend for a reunion.

The Dark Knight Rises, and Blows You Away

This may be the film that kicks off The Avengers from the all time box-office winner for 2012.  The movie is called The Dark Knight Rises, but loyal fans will refer to the film as Batman and they know that this dark knight has all the power to rise above any comic book hero the industry can throw at him. For me, I’m just one of the crew, a follower hooked since Batman BeginsRead more

MIB3, A Ho Hum Sequel


After squirming in my seat trying to get more comfortable several times I began to realize that there’s something wrong with Men in Black 3, it drones, creating a lackadaisical mood that destroys any comical stimulus.  That said, the film however reeks with plot, silly alien characters and amazing guns and gadgets.  But, the glitz and glitter aren’t enough to carry the third edition of the single film winning franchise.
