Taika Waititi has an impressive and eclectic body of work. From vampires living a mundane life to assembling the largest group of superheroes, he has entertained audiences with his unique writing and filmmaking style. His latest offering, Jojo Rabbit, leans more on the controversial side with viewers divided as to whether or not it is a brilliant movie or a mockery of one of the worst traged...

21 Bridges Blu-ray Review
Director Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones) is known for television so he made an interesting choice with his feature film directorial debut and the outcome eludes to his past experiences.

Ford v Ferrari 4K Ultra HD Review
Some memories never fade and a great film sometimes has a way of making them all that more vivid. One I'll never forget is racing through the canyons of Beverley, Coldwater, Laurel, and Topanga in my brand new GT 350 Ford Shelby Mustang. Sure wish I still owned that car, it has always been my favorite and fastest. Thank you, Carroll Shelby, for a lifetime of memories.Carroll Shelby, if you didn't ...

Downhilll Theatrical Review
Question: What do you call a film that's not funny, not deeply dramatic, and feels like a messed-up effort to re-make a good foreign film? I guess you call it "Downhill" and label it a ‘dramedy'. To sum up the "Downhill" situation; the filmmakers took what should have been a dream comedy pairing, in this case, the wonderfully talented Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the woe ...

Motherless Brooklyn Blu-ray Review
From the time Edward Norton (Primal Fear) first read Jonathan Lethem's 1999 novel, Motherless Brooklyn, he knew he wanted to adapt it into a feature film. However, it would be another nineteen years before the film actually got made. With Norton starring in, writing and directing the film, it truly became a labor of love for him. He also assembled an all-star cast that made his vi...

The Gentlemen Theatrical Review
In 1998, a young director named Guy Ritchie quickly made a name for himself with his feature film debut, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. Two years later he once again garnered praise for his sophomore effort, Snatch. Over twenty years later Ritchie's unique style is evident in every film he writes/directs. From his slow-motion action sequences to his fast-paced, close-ups and the...

Bad Boys For Life Theatrical Review
It's hard to believe that it was 25 years ago when we were first introduced to Mike Lowrey (Will Smith; Men in Black) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence; Martin), two Miami police detectives that didn't generally do things "by the book". Lowrey was the wild guy who drove a Porsche and lived in a spacious apartment overlooking the water while Burnett was a family man with more to l...

Dolittle Theatrical Review
When I was a boy, lad, young child, I was fascinated by an old black and white film I saw on TV called "Treasure Island". It exposed me to everything I knew nothing about, a dangerous sea voyage, nasty pirates, the hunt for treasure, and a resolution in doubt. I was so impressed by it that I still remember the impact it had on me to this day. "Dolittle" achieves that same impac...

Beverly Hills Cop Blu-ray Review
T is hard to believe that Beverly Hills Cop was released thirty-five years ago. Audiences fell in love with Eddie Murphy (Coming to America) as Axel Foley, a Detroit cop who has a total disregard for the rules. The foul-mouthed undercover detective offered his infectious laugh and outrageous character voices to audiences who ate it up. Three years later, people once again went to the theater to wi...
