FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE Blu-ray Review

     October 30, 2012

I am a big fan of martial arts films. I watch them constantly and although I prefer the more gritty realistic ones like The Raid Redemption, I do enjoy a good wirework fantasy swordplay extravaganza too.  So when I heard …

DUE DATE Blu-ray Review

     March 14, 2011

Due Date is a road trip movie mixed with The Odd Couple.  Using the classic comedy device of throwing two people together, whose personalities are so different, it’s a miracle they don’t kill each other, and then letting the chaos …

CONVICTION Blu-ray Review

     March 1, 2011

When a movie is based on a true story, it goes one of two ways, dipping into the realm of over-sentimentality or actually portraying the events in a real and human way.  Luckily Conviction is the latter.  The film is …

THE BOOK OF ELI Blu-ray Review

     June 16, 2010

I want to first start out by saying Matt Goldberg wrote a dynamite review when The Book of Eli was in theaters and I agree with him completely.  What could have been just a standard action flick, ends up being …

SURROGATES Blu-ray Review

     February 1, 2010

Surrogates is another cautionary sci-fi tale to hit DVD/Blu-ray shelves that forgets the main thing that makes science fiction really interesting, is allowing the audience to think.  The movie instead prefers fast pace and a short run time to actually …

     January 16, 2010

I am a huge 24 fan and have been since the very beginning of the series.  We’ve gone through some good times and some bad times together, as well as some embarrassing times.  From presidential assassinations, bio-threats, and nuclear bombs …
